Yes, it's the same one. AKA: Iron Goddess of Mercy
The Trio one, probably is too. I'm guessing it's a blend.
I think the Adagio TKY is one of if not the best. The best tasting ones completely unfurl into nice full leaves. A little longer brewing time is needed for this process. If you see TKY in bits and pieces, run for the hills.

Enjoy!

And thanks for the comp;liments on my blog! I do love purple. Many perfume folks are also into teas. It's a natural fit. :D

Big hugs to you too!!

You're gonna laugh because I'm being a little funny today. I'm drinking Adagio Cherry Tea and wearing Delices. (Non-perfume folks: Delices contains a cherry note.) I know, it's a little OCD! :oops:

Oh GD, Delices and cherry tea!! How lovely. Is that black tea with cherry?

I tried Almond Oolong this morning. I should be wearing Alessandro!

Welcome, Victoria :D

Your beautiful blog put me in mind of Perfume by Patrick Suskind, did you ever read it? If not, I recommend it.

Thanks Trey! No I did not read the book, but I was invited to the premiere of the movie because of my blog. I hope to get around to reading the book one of these days.

I've not read the book either, but the movie was one of the best I've ever seen. (I do have a rather odd taste in movies. I think I might have one romantic comedy in my extensive DVD collection, if that gives you any idea.) It was incredible how well the directors were able to transform such an olfactory-reliant plot into a beautiful visual experience. I even forgave some of the sillier cinematic moments (close up on flaring nostrils? that should make me want to giggle!) because the images actually worked.

I found the voice overs in the film to be quite funny. If they're lifted from the novel's English translation, it would be something I'd like to read.
