Thanks to the lovely Meghann M, my SweeTEA, for this Adagio creation by Tanya Laird. I am a nut for anything gunpowder, so naturally this blend of gunpowder, decaf spiced green and blood orange would appeal to me.
This is a fun, unique blend I plan on purchasing for myself when I run out.
The first sip is bold, orange-y and spicy, deliciously smooth. The aftertaste is a little bit smoky (thanks to the gunpowder), and still orange&spice.
I enjoy this at work in the afternoons. It’s calming and soothing, but not sleep-inducing!
Meghann, thank you for opening my eyes to this awesome blend! :)

Any tea based on Ms Amos’s lyrics is bound to be good. Do they have this up on their site?

Meghann M

Yay, I’m glad you liked it. I saw a tasting note of yours that mentioned Gunpowder was a fav tea of yours and thought this would be right up your alley:)

Sounds interesting. I’ve been crawling over the adagio website looking for a spicy blood orange, sounds this might be worth a try.

Batrachoid, the creator has several teas created based off Tori’s lyrics. That’s what drew me to them at first. Here is a link to the Riot Proof blend:

@Meghann M: You guessed right! I love the blend – so unique. I will be buying it once I run out, which is bound to be soon. :)
@atuinsails: YES this is awesome spicy orange. The gunpowder adds a hint of smokiness too. If you’d like me to send over a sample, I will gladly share. Just PM me your addy and I can send out tomorrow. :)

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
