Happy Halloween Steepster friends!

Hope everyone had a great day and lots of fun themed teas! This is one of several Halloween teas I steeped up this past week while enjoying some Halloween themed movie nights. I love the smokiness in this blend from the lapsang, but paired with that hint of sweet almond and the pleasant spice undertones. It’s not a flavour combination I would generally associate with Halloween but it’s delicious all the same.

Sipped on a mug of this one last week while watching Nightmare Before Christmas, which was the perfect combination of tea and Halloween classic movies! I loved the combination of Lapsang and the assorted spices a lot more than I thought I would – it was toasty and smoky but the sweetness of the apple and warming cinnamon notes also made it feel really cozy on top of that full bodied/intense flavour. Really enjoyable; I think in general Adagio’s Lapsang just works SO WELL in these fandom blends!

Yup, this is smoky. I’m not getting any hazelnut or apple. Just smokeeeeee ( and maybe a little bit of cinnamon/cloves). But mostly BBQ smoke.

This is SMOKY. The combination of the lapsang and blend of spices makes it very much a BBQ experience. I actually like it, I just chose the wrong time to drink it (it’s 100degrees outside). This will be excellent when it’s chilly out.

Me too! There’s an entire Adagio custom collection themed to Nightmare Before Christmas.

Yup….still not loving this one. Going in the swap pile. It’s like a cinnamon apple candle. Nothing special, unfortunately.

Not loving this one. I taste apple and cinnamon, but it’s pretty thin tasting…and I’m getting a rooibos note even though there isn’t any rooibos on the ingredient list. I wish the hojicha and chestnut were more present, and I can’t taste either.
