Drink Me: Adagio Teas, Eleven

One of my favorite things about starting this blog has been finding out which of my friends are interested in tea and getting a few of them more interested in tea.  This has led to some awesome tea exchanges and I’ve gotten to try so many new ones through them!

This past weekend my friend Ana of The Well-Appointed Desk came over for a little bit of knitting time and brought with her a few bags of tea for me to try. I settled down to try Eleven today, Adagio Tea’s signature blend for Matt Smith, the Eleventh doctor on Dr. Who.

From the website, the tea is a blend of black tea, assam melody, natural vanilla flavor, dried coconut and apple pieces.

It’s available in a sample tin for $4, a 3oz pouch for $10, a 5oz tin for $19 and as part of the Dr. Who Sampler Set (1 of 6 tins) for $19.

 

When I opened the bag I could smell the coconut and apple. Once brewed I mostly smelled the Assam.  The taste was as promised: “unfailingly sweet and as strong as you could ask for.”  It was perfect for a mid-afternoon sip and paired beautifully with some Trader Joe’s Almond Windmill Cookies leftover from the weekend’s knitting party!

    Dr. Who sampler set?! Well now I have to go check that out….my daughter secretly thinks she is a companion! She would love this!!

    • I have a couple more I’ll be trying and reviewing in the next week or two. I confess I’m not a huge Dr. Who fan, but I love the Adagio fandom blends. So much fun!

        Yea, me either. I liked the season with Catherine Tate (because I love Catherine Tate), but just can’t seem to get into the whole alien thing!!! Looking forward for more reviews 🙂
