For the Loyal: a Harry Potter Fandom Tea

I believe I’ve never sipped a tea more tempting than the For the Loyal tea, a fandom blend by Aun-Juli Riddle, which can be purchased from Adagio Teas. And when I say “tempting”, I mean I could barely resist throwing aside all of my reading obligations just to re (re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re) read the Harry Potter series. I stayed strong though.

I don’t care what the relaunch of the Pottermore Sorting Hat quiz suggests. I am not a Gryffindor (I’m afraid of the dark among most other things in this world); I am a Hufflepuff! So, without a doubt, I knew I had to have this tea. For the Loyal is a blend of black tea, white tea, apple pieces, natural apricot flavor, apricots, natural peach flavor, marigold flowers, natural vanilla flavor, and cinnamon.

If For the Loyal could be turned into a candle, I would buy all of them just so I could make my apartment smell like the Hufflepuff Common Room. At least, I assume it smells sweet vanilla and fruit anyway. What I’m trying to say is, the scent of this tea is so warm and inviting (two characteristics of most Hufflepuffs, amiright?).

For the Loyal is another tea that I prefer cool-to-cold instead of hot (like the coconut tea) because the flavor is more pronounced. The scent of the dried leaves was vibrant, so I expected layers of bold flavors, but when hot, the flavors just sort of run together– it’s not particularly fruit or creamy or spicy. When it cools down though, you can taste a hint of fruity apricot and apple. I also taste hints of something floral, but I think that might be the cinnamon playing tricks on my tastebuds.

Have you tried any of the Harry Potter fandom teas? Which one is your favorite?

  1. Oh, this is cool! I’m not a huge tea fan (or Harry Potter fan but sshhh, don’t tell) but one of my best friends is about to have a baby and this seems like a lovely gift for her!

  2. I’ve been eyeing Adagio Teas for a while now, and this one sounds perfect. I love how those scents totally complement Hufflepuff. I might have to order it now, as a little birthday present for myself πŸ˜€

    1. I love love love Adagio Teas, and they have a huge fandom tea collection. There are tons of different Harry Potter teas (blends inspired by characters and potions) that it can be kind of overwhelming to pick a tea to try. Oh, and the tea tins are so charming πŸ™‚

  3. Sadly, I am not a fan of tea….because it tastes like…tea!! HAHAHA HOWEVER, I like Thai Milk Tea! And that’s the only tea I drink! I have tried to love tea but..

    So, I feel pretty bummed for not being able to get one of those fandom teas because, obviously, it’s something that I won’t drink at all BUT I really love the concept!

    1. I’ve only had Thai milk tea once, and I thought it was pretty incredible! I need to figure out how to make it at home because none of the cafes where I live make it.
