100

Is it bad to give my own blend a 100? Oh well. I think this deserves it. There isn’t too much for me to say about this tea. I made this blend on a whim one day when I wanted to use up some of my favorite herbal blend.

I brew this at 212 for 3 minutes with 3 tsp per 16 oz. This tea comes out delicate and refreshing. The flavors mix well in this and make for a great “studytime” tea. I adore this and plan on buying some more once Adagio answers my email about buying a single tin from their site (they only sell their tins in 3 packs and I really only want one tin because I have no use for three…)

p.s. I’ve been gone for a while! It is great to be back :) This is all I’ve really been drinking besides the Tardis blend for the last week or so.

I"m glad that you gave your own blend a 100! ;-)

So the $24 price is for three tins, not one? I always wondered about that! Good for gifting, no?

oops! Let me elaborate: I meant the $15 pack of 3 empty 8 oz tins :p I haven’t bought this blend as a “custom blend” off their website and I don’t ever plan to. I mix this at home because it is much cheaper that way. A 3oz bag of the blend is 10 dollars while I could buy a 3 oz bag of hibiscus and 3 oz bag of fruit medley for 6 dollars each :)

Hey, it’s YOUR blend, you’re allowed to give it 100 :-)

I bought the envelopes, but my teas (in honor of HRH Emperor Oliver) are all white-based, so the price doesn’t seem so disproportionate… However, I hesitate to invest $24 in a 6 ounce tin. I mean, are they really well made? I certainly hope so—since they are charging an extra $6 just for the packaging! (I say this because if you buy the envelopes in pairs they cost $9 each, so two (= 6 ounces) is $18, but the 6 ounce tin in $24…)
