Hi! I'm Cara and I make a lot of fandom-inspired teas. This tumblr will help you keep track of blends I've made, give aways, reviews, and general tea information <3 If you've reviewed one of my teas and would like it featured here, tag it with 'whatpeoplebrew', or submit a link to the review! Ta!
Oh man I told you more Hobbit teas were coming. I’ll probably try to do all of the Dwarves eventually. We will see. Anyway, don’t forget about Bilbo, Smaug and Thorin & Co!
Thorin [assam melody, pu erh dante, gingerbread, cocoa nibs] A slightly bitter blend with just an edge of smokey forge fires and sharp spices. Dark and alluring, this is a blend that turns surprisingly sweet and mellow when treated right.
AREYOUTRYINGTODEDUCEME’S SUPER MEGA AWESOME HOLIDAY PRESENT EXTRAVAGANZA
So I’ve been working on Secret Santa stuff and Holiday things for my friends and family and now I’m just in a SUPER GIVING MOOD right now! And tumblr, you’ve been good to me this year. Like. Super good. I don’t know what I did to deserve all of you guys following me, but please, let me love you down. Let me shower you with gifts. Let me do a holiday give away.
On Christmas Day, December 25th, I will choose 4 DIFFERENT WINNERS for the following prizes:
The Second name will receive a Set of Supernatural Teas (Dean, Castiel, and Destiel) plus a Holiday Card with a sketch
The third name will receive a Set of the three most popular blends on Adagio (as of this posting: TARDIS, Reichenbach Recovery, and Watson. It can stay this three, OR, if the popularity rankings change when I choose a winner, they may opt to have the new top three teas) plus a Holiday Card with a sketch
BONUS PRIZE FOR AUSTRALIANS AND KIDS IN NEW ZEALAND (see below). You will receive a 16”x16” throw pillow of your choice from my Society6 shop, OR a shirt of your choice from my redbubble shop, as well as a Holiday Card with a sketch
You may notice that the Bilbo brew up there is in a tin. Well, that’s because that’s what I had to take a picture of, BUT, each winner may chose one of their teas in their set to be packaged in a tin in their choice of color!
****ADDED: Tumblr is a pain in the butt RE: Reblogs and giveaways. It literally makes it difficult for the OP to count reblogs when giveaways are concerned. The google form is my way to work around this, BUT, since you guys are doing a lovely job of reblogging this, I’ve taken steps to thank you, and make my life easier in order to tally the reblogs/likes as well. SO. At the end of the contest, I’ll also draw a random winner from the list of likes and reblogs, and that person will win a Tin of any one of my tea blends that they’d like, OR any one of my redbubble prints that they’d like.
you may enter a new form ONCE PER DAY until 11:59 P.M. PST, Dec. 24th
You can reblog this as often as you like, though your followers might punch you
You must be following me. I usually hate this rule, but this is a thank you to my followers for putting up with all of my crap. If you want to follow until I announce a winner, and then unfollow me in a fit of rage and frustration, that’s fine. I’m a big girl, I can handle that.
Please have your ask box open so I can let you know if you’ve won.
If you win, you have 48 hours to respond. I have to have a response from YOUR account, not from a friend telling me you’re deep sea diving for the next week and you can’t get to your computer. Sorry.
It’s open to EVERYONE, U.S. & International. I know the Adagio international fees are steep, so I’ll foot the bill if the tea winners aren’t in the U.S. However, Australia, New Zealand, and a few other countries don’t allow tea to be shipped in. So, if, say, one of the first names I pick happens to be someone from such a country, you will win the fourth prize option, instead of tea. Make sense? I just don’t want to leave you guys out just because of strict custom laws Q_Q
Okay so I posted this last night at nearly 4 in the morning so. Here it is again.
ALSO, scope out the addition I made, regarding reblogs. That’s vital info, y’all.
thedetectiveandtheblogger Hello there! I have a question! You haven't changed the ingredients in 'Watson', have you? I ordered it when you first made it and it's been one of my favorites out of all the others you've made. Recently i bought a 6oz can and when i got it in, i cringed. Instead of putting cinnamon in it, the but earl grey bravo :I Citrus peels and all. They sent me a replacement and i got it today....once again it was wrong. OTL
There has always been Earl Grey Green in the blend, but the cinnamon should still be pretty prominent D: I have never changed the ingredients or ratios on the Watson blend.
Wow this didn’t take me long OTL I was basically already thinking about blends for EVERYTHING the entire time I was watching this movie. Here are the first two, just because I’m too excited to wait and release them all at once 8D;;; Click the name of each blend to go to it’s page on Adagio where you can order some tea for yourself!
Pitch [assam melody,lapsang souchong,toasted mate, aniseed] Dark dark dark, waiting in the shadows to overwhelm your senses with smokey, bitter notes. The secret is to stir in just a touch of golden honey and the darkness will easily be subdued.
These two are shipped together for right now you guys, but it may not stay that way! Tomorrow I’ll probably post North and Jack Frost :D <3333
Smaug [lapsang souchong,candy cane,ginger, cinnamon,ginger,marigold flowers] Dark, smokey, and incredibly dangerous. Each sip will awaken a deep burning in your chest, while the tea itself shines with various gold notes.
Remember how earlier today I was like “OH NO SOMEONE FOUND MY SECRET TEAS”. These are the teas I was hiding. Made lovingly for two of my favorite people on tumblr and most amazing MoraMori cosplayers everrrrr. Tobie, Zhelly, I hope you like your teas as much as I like you U////v///U (If you’re not already following them, you NEED to follow Tobie’s Moriarty cosplay blog scienceofdestruction, and Zhelly’s Moran blog skinofstripes)
Science of Destruction[gunpowder,chocolate chai,vanilla, cinnamon,ginger,chocolate chips] Dark, smokey, and stronger than you could possibly imagine. Starts out sweet and rich, but will quickly burn you with heat. If there’s anything this tea is not, it’s dull.
cindywangportfolio I'm a huge fan of Adagio, and I love your teas. I just saw that you're in Atlanta, and I'm gonna take a crazy guess by your awesome cover art that you go to SCAD. ....I can't believe a legend on Adagio is in my city. LOL
Ahahaha, sure enough I graduated from SCAD Atlanta in 2010 with a BFA in Sequential Art!
