I made some Berserk tea blends
« 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:

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.”

Anyway, here is a new GC(expires in 24 hours): 9394417681

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.

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

Someone purchased the BIG 5oz tin of Casca. Whoever did that, I hope you enjoy it! 5oz is a lot of tea, imo!

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:

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

Here's a pic of what these look like:
