I discovered Adagio Tea allows you to create your own signature blend of tea. You can select one of their popular formulas as a template and edit the types of tea, or you can create your own special formula from scratch. You can further personalize the tea by naming it and adding your own original artwork to the packaging. You also have the option of keeping your specialty blend to yourself, or you can share it with the rest of the Adagio community. It’s not badly priced– about $10 for a 3 oz. bag of loose leaf tea.
There are a lot of really creative ideas like Sci-Fi Chai, an entire collection dedicated to the Zodiac, and a handful of teas based on popular books and teevee shows. Now if you’re familiar with Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop, then you probably already know where I’m going with this.
There is an entire collection of teas based off of the Harry Potter books! *squeals in delight*
Harry Potter Tea was created by Cara McGee and is a blend of Masala Chai, pumpkin spice, and caramel. Cara described this blend:
Treacle tarts, Pumpkin Juice and deep, warming spice. Boyish, yet brave, resourceful, and powerful.
The Luna Lovegood may not include dirigible plums (thank goodness), but it is a unique blend of Earl Grey Lavender, Rooibos Jasmine, and guanabana. Cara describes it:
The sweetest, softest, warmest tea imaginable, with a wild, surprising finish.
Neville Longbottom’s blend includes Irish Breakfast tea, Rooibos Vanilla Chai, and peach. This is surely a blend that characterizes Neville to a T(ea). Cara describes it:
Sweet, a bit befuddled, but all together warm and reassuring. A tea stronger than you’d expect, and endlessly comforting.
