Fandom Friday.. .Whovian FEELS from Adagio Teas #teageek 1

TGIF my friends.  I hope you all have entered the fun ValenTea Giveaway and The Golden Snitch giveaway. Both have fantastic prizes in them. To celebrate Fandom Friday right, I thought I’d try another one of my Adagio Signature Blends.  And of course, it is Doctor Who related! (Look at my new Pops!! Insert squeals here!)   Whovian FEELS is a blend of Irish Breakfast, Gunpowder, Cream, Cocoa Nibs, and Cinnamon. I have to say, this tea smells amazing. Like a cinnamon candle with a hint of chocolate thrown in. Smelled amazingly decadent and calorie ridden. I would never have […]


Giveaway Time. . . It’s ValenTea Fun! Random Acts of Tea-dom. . 7

It’s time for another fun edition of Random Acts of Tea-dom inspired by dePepi.com’s Random Acts of Fandom but this time it’s ValenTea Fun inspired! Valentine’s Day is almost here.  Jason and I have decided to celebrate in a style that fits us.  We are going to see PPZ and Deadpool on the same day. I’m super excited for both movies. I have loved Pride and Prejudice for years so when they started with the paranormal horror theme being thrown into classic books, I was ecstatic.  Not all of those “mash ups” are good, but Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies was one of […]


Beacon Hill Tea Company’s January Box. . .#BeaconHillTea #Simplycode 4

This past week has been a crazy one. Full of Doctor Who, loads of tea and coffee, learning how to code with my son and a bum shoulder and back.  You know you are getting older when you pull something in your back brushing your teeth (true story).  So my posts haven’t been as frequent as I would’ve hoped,  but I’m back on the mend. The hubby has been taking good care of me letting me finish all the episodes of Doctor Who and Torchwood that are currently on Netflix. While binge watching, we enjoyed the latest box from Beacon […]


Lovin’ Me Some Pumpkin Patch Tea from Handmade Tea #tea 2

I do love my tea subscription plans.  At one time, I had a sub with Plum Deluxe, Beacon Hill Tea, and Handmade Tea.  As you can imagine, that created quite a lovely tea stash to pick from.  The other day I was organizing my teas and noticed I hadn’t tried this particular one yet.  Pumpkin Patch from Handmade Tea. Pumpkin Patch is a lovely blend of black teas, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds and a few other spices that look like fall in a cup.  The blend had more of a pumpkin pie dry leaf aroma and smelled amazingly delicious. I have […]


Black Shuck from Wendigo Tea. . . . .Latte Style! #luxessentials 1

Wendigo Tea Company is one of my favorites.  Sky offers amazing straight teas that keep you wanting more.  The teas from Wendigo last pot after pot.  I’ve actually infused one serving of tea about 6 times.  Just amazing rich flavors. Each tea is named after a Cryptozoic creature.  There is a BigFoot blend which is easily my favorite tea ever and Nessy- and amazing jasmine green pearl tea that is simply beautiful.  There are a couple more, but those are my favorites. In my last order from them, there was a sample of this tea.  I thought during our recent […]
