From Adagio Teas

Often portrayed as touchy and skeptical, South Carolina delegate Edward Rutledge was a gentlemanly southern balance to brash Massachusetts delegates at the Continental Congress. He spoke up to counter the eager harshness of their views, suggesting the states wait on independence from England until the time was “ripe.” Eventually persuaded otherwise, Rutledge was the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence. His tea blend is likewise fashionable and classy with crisp, mild green pekoe tea, sweet and relaxing strawberry, with a slight aloof quality from the cool spearmint. Also delicious iced in South Carolina’s warmer climes.

I drank this tea iced for the 4th of July while rewatching HBO’s John Adams mini series. Edward Rutledge is the sassiest delegate at the Continental Congress by far, and has an excellent series of gifs on tumblr. Likewise his tea is hugely fruity with juicy strawberry as the strongest base. Dusty, floral lavender is next on the palette (and the most fragrant when the tea is dry). A smattering of raspberry leaves and a good dose of green pekoe add a grassy, vegetal depth to all the berry flavors. The mint comes through at the end and lingers in the cool mouthfeel. It goes well with the sharp coolness in Rutledge’s personality. I meant this to be iced and I believe it is still the best as a chilled tea but it’s a good blend for strawberry lovers. Or just fans of Rutledge. Who isn’t?
