I realized that I have not made my big announcement on here but I just became a rep for Adagio Teas. I share this opportunity with 4 other passionate tea lovers and I’m so excited to take you along this journey. If the brand name sounds familiar to you, it should. I’ve had the pleasure of working with them before on this and this. If you want to know more about what my rep duties mean, check out my Instagram post! These products were given to me free of purchase but all opinions are my own. FYI, you have to own the photos that you are using for the product and since I own my own images, I used them.
I recently made an exciting announcement on my Instagram story, if you missed it, don’t worry because here it is… I’ve been selected along with 4 other awesome peeps, to be a rep for @adagioteas . I am so excited for the opportunity to work closely with a brand that I love so much. Once a week, I’ll be sharing some tea inspo and content with you guys. Today is my first post featuring a few varieties of their teas. One of the reasons why I love Adagio is because they have such a huge variety of teas. They have everything from oolong to rooibos ☕️ #myadagio #teaThursday #ad #myadagiorep2
As a tea lover, it’s been a pipe dream of mine to create my own blend of tea and now I’ve done that, not once but twice! How exciting is that? On Adagio.com, they have the option to create your own fandom blends and I’ve decided to test it out. I was looking on the site for a tea inspired by The Flash and I couldn’t find one that seemed to suit my tastebuds, so I created my own. I also noted there was no blend inspired by my favorite character, Killer Frost.
Since I met The Flash irl, I figured I would use him for inspiration for both blends. Please note: This is Ezra Miller, the DC film universe Flash, I have not met Grant Gustin yet, but one day…
My Flash tea starts off with a base of Irish Breakfast which is sure to get you wide awake in the morning, so you can channel your inner speedster. I added some berry rooibos for color and flavor because I wanted the tea to steep red just like The Flash’s outfit. I added a bit of cream because Barry Allen is pretty sweet on screen and off screen. Last but not least I added Marigold Flowers for some flecks of yellow, so the blend would be reminiscent of the flash’s suit.
The blend wasn’t great but not as horrible as I thought it could be. The flavor that stands out is the berry versus the Irish breakfast. It’s simple but a bit too boring for my own taste. I am considering going back in and making a few changes in the blend. The hint of cream is lovely and you can taste it a bit but it was missing the Irish breakfast. I might update this post in case, I do decide to edit the blend.
Killer Frost/Caitlin Snow is my favorite character in “The Flash” besides Barry. Obviously, I had to make a blend inspired by my fave! Since Caitlin’s alter-ego is Killer Frost, I went for a cooling effect; the base is spearmint and peppermint with a hint of snowbud( I couldn’t resist the name, it’s a white tea). I also added Cornflowers for a bit of color.
This blend came as a total shock to me, I was so impressed with the flavor profile. It was hard to believe, I created it myself. The mint flavors compliment each other extremely well. This flavor profile reminded me of the coveted Moroccan Mint tea I tried while in Paris years ago. overall, I am seriously loving this blend, plus it perfect for after dinner, there is zero caffeine in it!
Overall, I enjoyed the process of creating my own tea blends and I hope to create more in the future. Even though, I didn’t love The Flash blend, I will still drink it and probably edit the “recipe”.
