We've actually temporarily 86'ed this feature -- our custom blends software needs some serious work so we can do this as efficiently as possible without sacrificing quality. You'll see it return in the next few weeks!

I've made four blends thus far:
  • Blend #1: Apricot:10, Ginger:10, Mango:40, Passionfruit:30, Vanilla:10
    Blend #2: Currant:10, Mango:30, Passionfruit:30, Raspberry:20, Vanilla:10 (I think)
    Blend #3: Cinnamon:40, Currant:30, Raspberry:20, Vanilla:10
    Blend #4: Almond:20, Cinnamon:30, Currant:30, Vanilla:20
(Blends 3 and 4 are very similar.)

My favorites are blends 2 and 3. I just received blend 4 yesterday and haven't had a chance to try it but it does smell wonderful.

The next blends I want to try are:
  • (Blend #5): Almond:20, Coconut:30, Currant:30, Forest Berries:20
    (Blend #6): Almond:10, Currant:40, Plum:40, Rum:10
    (Blend #7): Apricot:20, Coconut:20, Currant:20, Lemon:20, Raspberry:20
I've been curious to blend (for instance) Oriental Spice with Coconut and Lemon - it could either be really good or really gross. (I lean toward good, though.) I wish there were a way to order a sample of a custom blend but I know that wouldn't be particularly cost-effective for Adagio.

Somewhat along this topic: CommuniTea (the tea community that I belong to on LiveJournal) is doing a tea swap this month. I was thinking that we could organize something similar here for custom blends - I'd love to try what others have created. I don't know if anybody would be interested but I thought I'd throw it out there ;)
