From Custom-Adagio Teas

Hopeful, a point of interest, and just a bit bloody. Smooth chocolate and blood orange with a touch of almond oolong, Captain Mal is a zesty and sanguine blend that aims to misbehave. Make sure the tea leaves are properly mixed on this one, the blood orange bits tend rise to the top of the bag/tin.

blended with black tea, oolong tea, orange peels, rose hips, hibiscus flowers, natural chocolate flavor, dark chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, natural almond flavor, natural orange flavor

teas: blood orange, chocolate chip, almond oolong

accented with orange peels, chocolate chips and cocoa nibs

I have not done much business with Adagio and I’ve never tried their custom blends but I pulled this one out of Artp’s Traveling Teabox. It’s interesting – black tea with a hint of cocoa and orange. I’ve enjoyed it but it’s probably not something I would purchase.

First thought upon opening the bag: Oh god this SMELLS. It was overpoweringly strong to the point I wanted to gag.

Steeping it now… 2 teaspoons.

I was pleasantly surprised by the taste because I didn’t want to immediately spit it out. I was expecting something truly horrifically over-flavored given the heavy scent. It’s drinkable – barely – though why I would want to is a whole other question. I can’t concentrate on the flavor too much. The flavors just do not work together for me, and the tea feels faintly oily in my mouth, which isn’t terribly surprising given how heavily scented it was.

Dear self: You don’t need to prove your Browncoat cred by buying and drinking tea. Just rewatch the entire series a few more times. You don’t have all of The Hero of Canton lyrics memorized yet.

One of my favorite teas, this blend contains black, gunpowder, orange peel, and spices. It wakes me up in the morning without getting me all jittery. It’s perfect for any Firefly lover.

This tea tasted like a pretty standard black tea to me, with some extra flavor (but no single one or two that I could easily identify). I made it with a bit of rock sugar and had two sips just like that, and it was fine. It was a nothing-special black tea. I added a small amount of half-and-half afterward, and then it basically lost all flavor, which surprised me.

In sum, a dull black tea, not very exciting, not super tasty, but not awful either.

(Tea from silentrequiem. Thanks!)
