...and we drank tea by her side

I love doing themed groups of teas (first the Sereniteas and then the Doctor Who Series) and now I have gone back to the blending board :D

This time some musically inspired teas. Each of the tea names is the name of a Tori Amos song and the blend takes its inspiration from the name. So, you don't have to be a Tori fan to be a fan of the blends! I designed the labels to be simple and unobtrusive so that the teas would be the focus. Here is what is in this series:

http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=7280: Agent Orange is mostly white tangerine with a little blood orange added for sweetness.

http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=7279: Black Dove is a simple but delcious black tea composed of mambo and a hint of Earl Grey.
Image

http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=7286: Martha's Foolish Ginger is made with decaf spiced green tea mixed with lemongrass.
Image

http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=7285: Never seen blue is simply white blueberry blended with berry blues, very subtle and slightly sweet.
Image

http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=7278: Raspberry Swirl is ceylon sonata with raspberry flavored black tea and a hint of cream flavored black tea. Peppy without overwhelming your tastebuds.

Hope you find something you'll enjoy!

Woozl - I love the picture! Sorry if this question sounds odd....but which non-Tori entity are you in this pic? Where was the pic taken? I have to say I am jealous :D Closest I have been to her was about 7 ft.

I have not yet gotten her new album, since I am fairly broke at the moment - but hoping it will magically appear on Mother's Day ;) Heard it, yet?

I am also toying with a few more ideas for Tori song, blends - so keep an eye out in case anything strikes your fancy! :)

I'm the ugly dude with the two hot ladies.
My wife is jealous :P
We met her in Syracuse on the last tour.
New album is due on the 19th.
I've only heard one song so far so I will reserve judgement.

Thanks, Silver! It is fascinating to me how addicting blending can become. It is an odd little creative and zen thing for me. :D
