In honor of the new season of Doctor Who, Adagio.com had a short promotion where you “spun” a virtual wheel, and a sample tin TARDIS-themed fandom blend popped into your cart for free. This is the tea I got.
Name: T(ea) is for TARDIS
Source: Adagio (free sample)
Description from Vendor: A famous time machine and space craft that does wonders, also known as Time and Relative Dimension in Space. This rooibos tea is filled with the sweetness of Earl Grey and warm delicious vanilla and green tea. Touches of rose hips, hibiscus, blueberries and apple pieces add great flavour to this blend. Cheers!
My Preparation: Steeped 3 minutes at 190 degrees Fahrenheit
My Impressions: This tea has a really lovely aroma, thanks to the fruit and floral ingredients. It’s sweet enough for me to enjoy without adding sugar or honey, which is saying something, considering my sweet tooth. All of the flavors blend together really well, making a soothing, sweet drink that I think would be very nice over ice, though I haven’t tried that yet. Since I’m not generally a blueberry fan, this isn’t a blend I would have selected on my own, so I’m grateful to Adagio for sending it my way!
