I guess I am on a roll, here is Peter’s tea! (and here is a link to just the art) This was one of the really early blends I made and sat on, the label was a long time coming. WHEW!
Okay this tea is almost MEATY. Lapsang is very smokey, very strong, so strong that I worry the almond and gunpowder is almost too weak but it’s THERE just very light. What I have left of my tester pack is sealed up tight in a canister, it smells so strong.
Like seriously this tea is like jerky and campfires and yet I like the taste? It’s crazy. I think it suits Peter really well though! Hope you guys like it as well!
You can see my other blends here!
Finally finished Isaac’s tea label! Here is a link to just the art! It took a while to get the blend just right but I think it’s ready!
This tea is really warm and gingerbready, very smooth and a bit spicy. Hope you all enjoy it, I think it really suits the season!
Upcoming I have Peter Hale, Chris Argent Papa Stilinski and Melissa McCall. And I am almost done with all the season 1 characters oh lord lol. Next I get to tackle the Alpha pack….I HOPE.
I have been struggling with Boyd’s tea label for AGES, I’ve drawn Sinqua like 4 times now, he’s got a face like Chris Pine for me I guess. Really hard to draw! I’d actually come up with the ice theme before we knew his background, simply because he worked at an ice rink! NOW THIS IDEA IS EVEN MORE SAD. SORRY GUYS. (I had way too much fun drawing the ice and the faux fur, gosh!)
Anyways! This tea is really good and vanilla-hazelnutty! Very smooth and with a bit of a crisp mint follow up. I don’t have many decaf blends so I wanted to be sure this one was. :D
He’s also paired with Erica’s Wild Child blend so you can get a dollar off of each when you buy them together!
So I’ve been having especially strong Sciles feelings lately and I have had this BFF tea sitting in my private adagio stash for ages. Seemed the right time to post this! I love these two so much and I feel like this blend captures the feeling of blanket forts, Saturday mornings and fun times camping in the back yard. :’)
It’s really good cold too, I hope you guys like it! <3 (and the label art, I’m really happy with the outcome! ;~:)
I don’t have a catchy title for this one, but it tastes a little like apple pie.
This is made with Daunt’s yummy Derek Hale tea, found here.
- 4 cups of brewed and sweetened Sour Wolf tea
- 2 cups apple juice or cider
- 1/2 cup whipped cream or vanilla vodka
- Ice cubes
Oh my goodness I am totally going to try this!! This is amazing!
I figured tonight was a good night to release this tea! I made this SPECIFICALLY to help relieve stress and help sooth our broken hearts! It’s got all the things that help with stress like chamomile, lavender, peppermint and lemon balm along with some other great things.
Make sure you SHAKE UP THE BAG if you get it because the chamomile is HUGE and will stay at the top of the bag while all the rest of the ingredients will sink to the bottom. I actually store mine in a tupperware container. :)
You can let this sit for and brew for 5-8 minutes in 212 degree water, easy peasy!
OKAY GUYS lets batten down the hatches, I am so not ready for tonights episode! 8C
PS: Here are my other teas including my Tea Wolf blends!
Holy cow, I FINALLY finished his label. I am so sorry guys. I actually had to redraw it twice (same with Boyd’s sadly). BUT NOW IT’S DONE! This one tastes really nice, I’m actually drinking a cup right now! I sent a sample pack to Amber and she tested it for me because she’s an angel (you can read about that here).
And I’m shipping him with my Bones tea, DAMMIT, so if you want a $1 off each tea blend you can buy them together. :)
As always, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
This time I am doing a little something special where the first person who reviews this blend on Adagio gets a free sample of one of my unpublished new teas! I have a lot finished and ready for posting that just need artwork!
So yeah. :D
I wanted to do something very fresh and much more along the lines of green and white tea and less sweet than my usual teas. It’s got a hint of sesame/chestnut flavor and a bit of natural blueberry to it as well. VERY good, I really enjoy it. It’s got a bit of a scent of barley? ANYWAYS, it’s a bit earthy, I really like it! :)
THANKS GUYS! <3
OH MAN so this is my least favorite label, I swear I will draw Allison all badass next time. BUT this tea….this TEA. It’s got jasmine in it which is one of my favorite things ever and it tastes so fabulous. Also I paired her with Scott so now you can get 20% off if you buy this one AND Sugar Puppy!
Next up will possibly be Jim Kirk, Boyd….or….Maybe something else? Depends on how soon I get the rest of my work done. :)
THANKS GUYS! <3
In my last Adagio order, I picked up daunt’s A (sort of) Fairytale. (I’d love to read the fic that goes with it, but I don’t think it’s been posted yet?) Here are my impressions of this blend.
I used about 2 teaspoons for 10oz of 195F water and steeped for 3 minutes. The recommended temperatures for all the teas in this blend is 212F according to Adagio, but I find I like oolong teas better at about 195F (honestly, that’s the temperature we keep our hot water thing anyway).
The tea brews up a very lovely color with a spicy scent. I didn’t get much in the way of vanilla, though. Without milk or sugar, I thought it was a nice tea with the pumpkin spice being the strongest and little to no vanilla flavor. A touch of sugar boosts the flavor a bit.
Now… with some sugar and a splash of cream, I finally get the vanilla flavor in this tea. I like this one a lot with sugar & cream - it’s like a milder version of Harvest Moon, which is my absolute favorite.
A second steeping of the leaves for 4 minutes is mostly oolong tea with a slight hint of the pumpkin spice. A third steep at 5 minutes is okay, but it’s definitely all oolong at that point.
Would I buy this again? Yes, indeed. I’d have a tin of it on the shelf next to Harvest Moon!
Awesome write up, thank you so much! So glad you liked it, I am such a sucker for sweet black/oolong teas. 8)
