From Custom-Adagio Teas, Cara McGee

blended by Cara McGee

Outwardly smooth and charming, but perhaps a bit confused about what it wants to be. A tea that is sure to keep you guessing.

Inspired by characters owned by JK Rowling/Warner Brothers.

Ingredients: earl grey green, peppermint, almond

This tea is very difficult to describe. At first sip, it doesn’t seem like it should work. Peppermint and almond don’t go together! And they certainly don’t go with earl grey green! What??

It’s odd because it actually does. The almond adds a hint of sweetness to the more exuberant peppermint/bergamot battle. I’m going to have to order a sample of adagio’s earl grey green just to figure out what’s going on with this tea, haha. The bergamot is barely there, but the green tea base is mild and almost a bit nutty.

Everytime I had a cup of this, it just called attention to itself – sort of like a meditative experience. In the end, this was relaxing and a great drink for afternoons.

I didn’t really like this cold, but it’s really relaxing and refreshing at room temperature.

First of all, Draco is a ridiculously pretty blend— green tea leaves, mint leaves, blue cornflowers, and the orange peel make just about the loveliest color scheme ever. Secondly, while Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas ever, this is the first time that I’ve tried it in its green incarnation. I think we’re off to a pretty good start; it’s all the bergamot-y flavor minus a bit of the punch, which can be good on occasion.

Almond is extremely prominent with this guy but it compliments the peppermint so well that I feel like writing sonnets about it. Maybe. Eh… well no, not really, but it is that good! Kind of like a cookie. Think along the lines of those shortbread cookies that come in the huge round tins, with peppermint. The dry smell is a bit “HELLO DOLLY” inducing because it is quite sweet but it mellows out nicely once brewed. I like it plain, no sugar or milk. The only down side is that it isn’t so tasty on ice.
