the dry leaf blend smells pretty amazing. peach city!
steeped and plain, the tea falls SLIGHTLY flat for me, but i bet if i add just a touch of agave it’ll kinda fill out. i’m also going to try different steeping times and leaf quantities. it’s one of those occasions where the good outweigh the unsure qualities, and with just a little experimentation the tea will reach it’s proper potential. (i’ll keep ya posted.)

but in the meantime, does anyone here make their own adagio blends? if so, what method do you use? do you buy sample sizes of different teas and then measure out tiny half teaspoon ratios? and the brew them each in a tiny cup? or do you just think really hard and make a blend on the website and just go for it?
i really wanna be able to at least make one blend i feel good about, but i’m afraid i just might not have the knack for it…

OMGsrsly

Ooh, good question! I was curious about that myself..

Hello.Kiki

I don’t know how some of them do it! I think I would go with samples to try blending different ratios together, without having to commit to a larger bag.

I want to like this but I don’t know how oh god I’m such a noob I totally get it if you want to hate me D:

Aside from the mini overreaction, I made my own Adagio blends for flatmates after I showed them my character-based Sherlock and Doctor Who teas, and they wanted their own! (: I did it mostly for whimsy, and used like a teaspoon of each of three different teas, and brewed a whole pot of it.

By the way, I used sample teas I get from Adagio with each purchase, I always buy enough samples to get me over the free shipping (which is usually just two)
