In Which I Make Tea Blends

I'm not usually one for self promotion, but I started making tea blends, and I'm quite proud of some of the ideas I've had, so this is a master post of all sixteen teas I've made thus far. No witty reviews today :) But I'd be super grateful if you looked through these.

Oh, and I'm leaving the code for 5$ off at the bottom of the post. It's good for your first order.  Click on the links to be whisked off to the tea's page. All the ingredients are listed there too.

1. Fandom Recovery
This is what I'd like to be drinking when I'm just too overcome with feels.

2. A Midsummer Night's Dream

A light herbal blend based off the Shakespeare play of the same name.

3. Between Two Lungs
Inspired for Florence + The Machine's debut album. Very fruity.

4. Captain Jack Sparrow
Why not? I consider this one to be one of my best.

5.Corpse Bride
A slightly romantic blend. This uses Adagio's Earl Grey Lavender blend, so it has a bit of calming effect as well.

6. Halloween At Hogwarts
I've always loved how J.K. Rowling describes autumn at Hogwarts, and how the Halloween passages always have some  significance. So here's one for that. Basically a good pumpkin spice tea with a bit of chocolate.

7. Hex Hall
This is named after one of my favorite YA book series. Very southern and sweet.

8. Luna Lovegood
An odd but tasty blend for the incomparably awesome Luna Lovegood.

9. Mr. Pond
I figured if Rory from Doctor Who keeps dying, he ought to have a tea in his memory. Strong and a bit fruity.

10. Not Your Housekeeper
Something for Ms. Hudson. Good for the afternoon tea fix.

11 River Song.
A dessert tea. This one was co-engineered by my little sister. Her favorite Doctor Who character is River Song.

12.  Shakespeare
My personal favorite tea blend. I actually have tasted this one and it is ridiculously good.

13. The Consulting Criminal
Jim Moriarty is one of my favorite Holmes characters, so therefore, this. It's got just a hint of citrus in with the Irish Breakfast and hazelnut.

14. The Consulting Detective
What better to go with the Consulting Criminal? An excellent spiced chai blend.

15. The Graveyard Book

Based on the fantastic Neil Gaiman novel, The Graveyard Book. A very autumn-y tea. I'd been dying to use Spiced Apple Chai, and this was the perfect oppurtunity.

16. The Raven
An Edgar Allen Poe type deal. Very dark.

Making these has been really fun for me, and Adagio has tons of other amazing blend makers.

As promised, here's five bucks off a purchase if you decide to buy any. It's only good for 24 hours after this is posted. Here's the code: 7085495612.
