Oh, how cool!

Did you know that there are fandom tea blends at Adagio? I didn't. There does not appear to be a Severus blend, though. *pouts*

Ooh, I didn't know that at all! The James Potter sounds particularly delicious.

Severus is on the second page. :)

When I clicked on the HP section, it only came up with six blends, and I couldn't see any way to navigate to another one. *is challenged* Link me, please? *bats eyes*

Unfortunately he's out of stock, but here he is! :)

I missed it the first time too, but I clicked on the HP section, it came up with six blends, and then there's a white arrow for next just to the right of Harry and James. Unless there's another HP section, heh, but I've got Harry as being 6 of 12. Luna's on the second page too!

Thank you! I totally missed that arrow. *snorts* Also amusing? The Moriarty inspired tea is called MoriarTea. ;)

All good. :) I missed it at first too, but kept looking because the first six characters really seemed a very strange mix of people to choose. Really, why have Pettigrew and not Severus? And why have Remus, Sirius, and James, but no Ron? Fortunately the second page cleared that right up, heh.

MoriarTea is an adorable name. :)

That's what I thought, too, about the characters—but it's early, here, so I gave up too soon. *rolls eyes at self*

lol! *and hugs* It's okay--it's past midday here and I've already had three cups of tea. That and I'm meant to be folding laundry, so any excuse to investigate things. :)

I'm about to start laundry after I walk Albus, and then I have to balance the check book, pay bills, go to the store, and make a bunch of appointments—but at some point, I'm going to sit down with a nice cup of tea and read!

Especially since the big bang just posted! *whimpers* I took Katja out for two hours this morning, but I definitely spent most of that time wondering if there's a way I could read and walk at the same time. :)

I know you can make and name your own Tea Blends. One of the girls just did it for Star Trek (Because there wasn't any before that.)

I know that there is tea for: Teen Wolf, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Sherlock, Supposedly Doctor Who and who knows what else. XD

It's a neat idea even if some of the tea mixes makes me want to run and pay homage to the all knowing porcelain god of horror.

I saw her post in st_reboot! That's what led me to the site. I wonder if there are any Lovecraftian blends? *goes to look*

And there is!

LOL, I didn't know she posted there. Knew she posted the the Kirk/McCoy Comms, Spock/Kirk Comms, and another ones I am a member of as well as her own. (I had no chance to miss that!)

I don't agree with her McCoy though... there is no Oolong in it and McCoy being a true Southern Gentleman... he enjoys his iced tea... mint julep and a good bourbon. XD

I don't know enough about tea to comment on the blends, but I think it's a neat idea to make them. :D

Yes. Adagio had a cherry blossom hunt on their website a while back and lemme tell you there are an insane amount of character mixes like idek. There's definitely a Severus one. You probably didn't see it because the search function is a bit weird. I'm not even sure what criteria it uses as I know for a fact it won't bring up every blend you are searching for.

I found most of the character blends going through the links at the bottom of each mix's page. I can't say whether any of it's any good or not, though, as I didn't buy any. I was too miffed about the cherry blossoms at the time.

What miffed you?

I found the Severus blend, but it's currently out of stock. There's also a Lovecraft blend! I'm going to spend way too much time on this site (hunting for decaf blends). *snorts*

It was an insane amount of work to find most of them and I ended up sharing most of the blends I found and getting a handful that others found as well. Even working together, no one could get all of them. It was annoying, and the savings really wasn't worth it imo. I have other stores I prefer, anyways.

Ah, that's a bummer. Yay, other stores!
