Title: I made some Berserk tea blends
Post by: XionHorsey on June 16, 2016, 02:14:23 AM
Adagio teas allows "fandom blends" and there are bunch of fandoms there, including Berserk. So, I decided to make some blends based on Berserk. I currently have 14:

Here's a 5$ gift certificate(it expires in 24 hours though): Yummy treat! Here is a $5 gift certificate to Adagio Teas: 8594962416. Expires in 24 hours. http://www.adagio.com/

I decided to go ahead and do it when I kept thinking of that tea in #337. Too bad they didn't actually have marjoram.

I love Berserk and I love tea, so I think this is pretty fucking cool!  :guts: It was fun looking at the different blends you created. I couldn't get them all, but I decided to try the Casca, Judeau, and Conrad ones because those sounded good to me. Do you have a favorite? I plan on giving more a try in the future.

Thank you! :D


Anyway, the White Falcon tends to stick out the most for me, but that maybe due to being "baby's first" and the one in #337. I'm also a sucker for mint. I ended up ordering one for myself.

Between the ones you ordered, Conrad would be my favorite because I like almond a lot.

I hope you like what you ordered.  :iva:

Tea makes me happy. Berserk makes me happy. This is wonderful.

I might just pick some of these up if I can soon.

As a Brit, I feel like it's my duty to buy some tea related to Berserk  :ganishka: just hoping there is no huge shipping price I will have to account for  :sad:

Thank you very much! :D

Anyway, here is the shipping to England: 1kg: $54.15   2kgs: $62.23   3kgs: $68.59
:( Isn't a KG quite a bit though?  And they use Priority which would explain the cost, but still...that's a lot.  :judo:

I also have two new blends(up to 17 now): https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/group.html?group=10591

I ordered The White Falcon and just got it today!

Here's what it looks like: http://imgur.com/a/TUlCH
I like the sample tins. :)

Anyway, here is what I said in my review(I really liked it):

https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=111358

“This is one of those blends that reminds me of something that's hard to describe yet I can't stop drinking it. The scent was a strong mint with hints of chamomile and hibiscus(yes, I know I made a typo on the tin. Ooops). Ginger doesn't seem to be noticeable at all and that's unusual, but that might be because this tea has quite a bit of mint. It's just that I can't seem to stop drinking it. Honey doesn't seem to make much of a difference and I have yet to add sugar. Overall, I like it very much. Maybe it's because nothing is really all that overpowering. nothing stands out too much. It's like they all blended in as one. Would get again.”

I got my tea and have sampled all 3 now. I liked all of them and it's hard to say which was my favorite. They're each so different. The Conrad blend has an unusual fragrance that reminded me of some good smelling tobacco.  :serpico: They're all rich in flavor and aroma. They make an excellent cup of tea!  :ubik: The tins are cute, too. Thanks for coming up with these, XionHorsey!

I've really been enjoying this tea! :guts: I still haven't run out of what I ordered last month and I've been drinking it pretty often. Those sample size tins seem to last longer than I thought they would. Just ordered some more. This time I'm gonna try the Zodd, Rickert, Vargas, and Skull Knight blends.
Title: Re: I made some Berserk tea blends
Post by: XionHorsey on July 21, 2016, 02:04:25 AM
Yea, they're more than what they seem. I've ordered three ounce bags and it took ages to finally run out. TBH, I tend to be more of a coffee drinker!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your new order! :D

For future reference, you can take the fan quiz and get a badge once you pass.

You know, the Casca blend really became my go-to of the first 3 I ordered. I don't think whoever ordered it will be disappointed!  :slan:

Post by: JMP on August 01, 2016, 10:39:14 PM
I really like the new 4 I ordered! :ubik: All very good in their own ways.

Zodd: a robust, bracing tea; great to enjoy with something sweet, like cake or a cookie

Skull Knight: strawberry provides a hint of sweetness, while the rose gives it a lovely aroma and flavor

Vargas: a mild, soothing blend; nice with honey and good before bed time or when you need to relax

Rickert: strong, hearty base with sweet and fruity flavors, very tasty

What it says on the tin. A 'Cinnamint' type. The cinnamon is the first thing that's noticed, the mint becomes noticeable later. I really like it and not because it's 'Griffith/Guts'. I added no honey or sugar of any kind.

Not a fan of tea personally, but I have some relatives who most certainly are. I'm sure they will appreciate tea that's been damned eternally to the Vortex of Souls as a fine gift. :ganishka:

Recent orders. My reviews:

Griffith: “Mint Mint Mint! I love mint, but from what I've tried, it's ALL MINT! Snowbud? Where? Nowhere. Honestly, this tastes like flavored water. That's not Griffith's personality. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, but I didn't detect any cinnamon and I've had stronger mints. And Snowbud is apparently white tea and I tend to prefer other tea 'colors'. Still, not a bad tea, and I did not include sugar or honey, so maybe that'll make a difference. However, some people prefer subtle teas and this is one of them."

Slap heard around the world: “At first, it had a bit of a 'band aid' taste, but not in a bad way and I think it's kind of fitting considering what happened in #337. After that, I can taste the cinnamon spice and things not so nice. I felt a tingle on my tongue and it's still there. Has a little 'slap' to it. So, it starts out 'calm' and then 'SLAP' right on your tongue. I liked it. It's even better with honey.”

Here's my review for 4 of the last teas I ordered:

Princess Charlotte: A lemon-ish aroma, very delicate flavor, a little on the bland side for me.
Locus: Hearty, yet mellow in a way with a sweetish flavor, very tasty.
Guts: A robust tea, somewhat reminiscent of the Zodd blend, but with cinnamon. It's good.
The Slug Count: Unusual, but good. Hard to describe, but I can taste caramel and fruity flavors, fairly mellow sweet flavor.

Here's some pics of these:

Thanks! :serpico:

I got 5 more teas to try during the sale last month. Here they are:

Brand of Sacrifice: Tasty, with a sweet cherry/citrus flavor.

Theresia: Really good, has a full-bodied, creamy floral taste.

Vortex of Souls: Citrusy aroma and flavor, tastes like fruit punch, pretty good stuff!

Bazuso: This was a strange one. The best I can do is to say it somehow tastes like leather in a good way. Strong, masculine, and has an earthy, bold flavor. Tastes better than it smells. Overall it's a bit much. I can't decide if I like it or not!  :???:

The White Falcon: Very nice, relaxing minty aroma. Hard to describe the flavor, but it's really good. Definitely would have taken Charlotte up on a refill! :ganishka:

It is good! :iva: At least in my opinion. Thanks again for making it!

Here are the latest teas I tried:
(http://i.imgur.com/R5y7nNxl.jpg)

Pippin: unusual, but good! Before steeping it smells like gingerbread. The flavor is spicy and has a bit of a kick, but it's quite a pleasant tea. It has a warming effect apart from just the temperature of the beverage. Would be just the thing for a cold day!

Puck: has a fairly subtle taste, a hint of sweetness and floral aftertaste. It's good and the sprinkles make me happy. After I drank it there was a colorful little ring left in the cup.

Ivalera: very tasty berry flavor and the hint of mint from the candy cane is tasty! I really like it!

Corkus: hard to describe! Sounds strange, but the closest thing I can compare the aroma to is a pair of new shoes. :ganishka: Unusual flavor, but somehow sort of pleasant and a bit coconutty.

Femto: really nice blueberry aroma and flavor! The character may be evil, but the tea is damn good!  :femto:

Thanks to the Anime/Manga Gift exchange on reddit, I was finally able to try Guts! It's quite addictive with a good, strong after taste. I just kept sipping and sipping at it. It's a solid spice tea and like I said before, I can see why it's so popular!
