From Custom-Adagio Teas, Amy Zen

No power in the ‘verse that can stop this tea from being cheerful. Strawberries and cream make this the perfect blend for anyone with a sweet tooth. This blend is tweaked a bit so that it doesn’t contain green tea anymore, and now has just a hint of chocolate :)

Blended with black tea, hibiscus flowers, rose hips, apple pieces, natural strawberry flavor, rose petals, natural creme flavor, strawberries, natural chocolate flavor, dark chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, raspberry leaves

So it appears whatshesaid and I are both embarking on our Firefly journey alongside one another as we both drink Adagio’s character inspired teas!

We also both had this one tonight, though I think I had a very different experience with it than she did. I should note that I added milk to my mug of it because once I saw it had Strawberries in the blend I thought this would be awesome with milk!

For me, I picked up heavy notes of strawberries and cream as well as notes of chocolate although they were more background notes. The hibby in this was really hard to detect for me; not that I’m complaining. Something about hibiscus and chocolate just doesn’t sound right to me. Drastically different from whatshesaid (and apparently everyone else who has reviewed this) is that I got a lot of licorice taste in this! Huh. I’m wondering if maybe there was some flavour contamination? Although I can’t think what possibly from. I don’t know; I thought it tasted good with the weird licorice notes, anyway.

This seems like a good blend for Kaylee; I like how flavourful and fun it is. Plus, I’m only on episode four and already they’ve focused on Kaylee eating strawberries twice. This tea kinda reminded me of her ruffle-y pink and white dress too which kinda looked like a strawberry and cream layer cake.

Anyway, pressure’s on to finish the series because I told Tyrell that if I finish it by Sunday I’ll start watching Game of Thrones with him, and he seemed really excited about that.

Next up I think will be one of the Tams or Captain Mal? I don’t know; I guess we’ll see tomorrow night. Thanks again VariaTEA for the sample! I liked this one better than Inara.

GAME OF THRONES IS AWESOME!!! You are getting to experience some great television :)

whatshesaid

Sounds like you enjoyed it! The milk was probably a good idea.
I like your comparison to her frilly silly layer cake dress, I just watched that one actually :)

Cavocorax

<3 Kaylee. And GoT! :D I hope you enjoy both shows!

I was going to just sit back and enjoy this without analyzing it, but I realized I couldn’t pinpoint any notes within so I had to look it up.

I guess I can tell that it’s chocolate and strawberry but there’s a weird sour note that is turning me off – I can see now that it’s the hibiscus. Whhhhyyyyy would that be added?!

Yuck.

I am glad I got to try this though! I started watching Firefly last night for the very first time!!
Thank you to Cavocorax via VariaTEA!

I had this tonight too! Didn’t get much hibby, though. Looks like we’re definitely sharing in our adventure of Firefly! :)

whatshesaid

It was so bitter! Maybe I left it too long, who knows.

whatshesaid

I’m definitely enjoying the firefly viewings! I can’t believe it took me this long, considering how much and how long I’ve loved BTVS and Angel

Yay! This is another one from VariaTEA. She actually gave me the entire Firefly set as samples and I know I’m going to have fun trying them. I had to start with Kaylee though. She’s probably my favourite. Also, I did sorta name my daughter after her (her middle name is Kaylee) because this character is so awesome, full of heart, and incredibly talented at something not typically done by a woman. I consider that makes her a good role model. :P

It was funny. I was searching for names and as soon as that popped into my head I couldn’t think of any others. My bf came up with the first name because I was idea’d out. :P

So anyway. THIS TEA:
It’s dark chocolate (and really flavourful for an Adagio tea!) mixed with sweet strawberry goodness, and back by floral notes. I’m not generally into floral teas, and that was what made me hesitate about this one, but it makes me think of desserts, and valentines day, and happiness and everything shiny.

Y’know… I could maybe drink 3 oz of this. Eventually. :D
Thanks!

VariaTEA

Yay for a successful Kaylee tea. I was going to be sad if you hated this one.

Cavocorax

:) I wouldn’t want it all the time, but it’s not good.

Cavocorax

I mean, it IS good. /0\

Shiny! Kaylee is one of my favorite characters from Firefly. It’s hard to choose just one because all the characters are awesome! How did this get cancelled! I have to get some of these teas :-0

Sipping on this tea, I can’t help but be reminded of Kaylee’s pink dress. It is sweet and feminine and a but over the top but Kaylee pulls it off. Rose is at the forefront but it is complimented by the candy strawberry flavor similar to that of strawberry licorice. On top of all that, a hint of chocolate is floating around in the cup just beneath the other elements to add a bit of depth. I think I would actually get this one again because I really do love Kaylee and this tea is a great representation of her character.

LOVED Kaylee! Why do the best shows get cut! I think my daughter has some Kaylee tea. (Well, since I gave her a Firefly sample pack for her birthday in Feb., she probably still has some) I’ll have to get some from her. :D

Are the Firefly teas pretty varied? I found with the sampler pack of Doctor Who that I got it seemed that many are similar. Lots of Early Grey and English Breakfast bases.
They describe the ‘Amy’ tea as ’fiery ’ to go with her hair and temperament but I never tasted it at all.

VariaTEA

I have found them to be fairly different. Most are good, though none are particularly outstanding.

And you are very correct about great shows getting cut. Everyone I know who has watched Firefly has LOVED it. In fact, many friends struggle getting through the single season because they know that once it’s done, there won’t be anymore. Such sadness.

Dustin

I like the show, but hated that pink dress! :)

VariaTEA

Haha it really was quite the atrocity but I feel like Kaylee was able to make it work :P

@Carol Who; the Firefly sampler is my favourite of all the ones I’ve tried to date. Pretty well all the blends are different and they don’t rely on the same set of ingredients – and they’re really well thought out for the most part (especially thing one, and I think Jane’s was the other I was super impressed by). I’ve had all of ’em (courtesy of VariaTEA) except for Shepard Book.
