“And you’re… you know, grandmotherly. Grandmothers do that sort of thing, don’t they? Darning socks and whatnot. You don’t want me to have to fight darkspawn in a shirt with a hole, do you? It might get bigger. I might catch cold.”

A classy, comforting, decaffeinated earl grey blend. Bergamot, notes of vanilla, and a hint of ripe apricot create a soothing, grandmotherly tea appropriate for a Spirit Healer, with a mildly fruity aroma like a fresh-baked apricot tart. The flavor is predominantly a light earl grey, with just a touch of delicate, fruity sweetness.

No way affiliated with Bioware. This tea blend is just created by a fan and inspired by the world of Thedas.

Another sampler tea! This one smells mainly of just earl gray. But somewhere along my tea journey I’ve come to enjoy it as long as there are other flavors playing with it. In the dry leaf I couldn’t really smell the apricot, but it is in there! They blend quite well and this is pretty great for me because I need to watch my caffeine intake still!

EG and apricot—sounds like they would fit nicely.

Tamm

It was just enough apricot to stand out, but not too much to overpower the EG, so I’d say it’s pretty great! I need to get out my apricot preserves to have with this.

My last cup of (decaf) tea to wind down my stay-at-home-sick-as-a-dog day. Tastebuds are fortunately working top notch though, so I’m not deathly bored all day. One reason I was so excited to get these Dragon Age blends, are because I’m such an avid fan of the game. This particular set of fandom teas from Adagio includes both the flagship game, and the expansion. (Dragon Age III coming out this year! Wooot!)

This particular blend? Comes from a cute dialog the characters have as you’re wandering around the world. Alistair is a charming jock-looking virgin ex-templar. Wynne is an elderly kind white-magic mage.

“Alistair: Wynne?

Wynne: Yes, Alistair?

Alistair: My shirt has a hole in it.

Wynne: I see. And?

Alistair: Can you mend it? When we get back to camp?

Wynne: Can’t you mend your own clothes? Why do I have to do it?

Alistair: Sometimes I pick up too much fabric and it ends up all puckered and the entire garment hangs wrong afterward. And you’re… you know, grandmotherly. Grandmothers do that sort of thing, don’t they? Darning socks and whatnot. You don’t want me to have to fight darkspawn in a shirt with a hole, do you? It might get bigger. I might catch cold."

The two characters are the most… innocent, wholesome, and freakishly adorable characters in the first Dragon Age game. I think this scent is befitting of not just Wynne (her scent alone would be something in the white-tea range, imo) but how she treats all the characters. From mending socks, to lecturing you on the dangers of falling in love during such a critical time.

This is classic, bordering on old-fashioned. Decaffeinated to keep you calm and steady. There’s a touch of outdoorsy comforting warm sun on the fields vibe. Unfortunately my sample tin literally only had ONE orange peel and ONE apple piece, and this cup didn’t get those. I think the Apricot Tea is still infusing it with a slight fruity aftertaste – I just know having chunks of apple in this would round it out absolutely perfectly.

I really enjoy this. It’s a nice bed-time tea. I’m not sure if it will outlast other varieties I might come across, but for now I’ll be using it up.
