Veritaserum/Adagio -ashmanra-

This tea blend designed by Robert Pirlot came in a sampler. There are six different teas in the box, housed in slide-top tins with each tin holding 1/2 ounce of tea. There are more than six Harry Potter fandom blends available, though, and you can choose your own sampler set. I love that!

Veritaserum is a black tea with raspberry, chocolate, and hazelnut flavors. The black tea base is fairly strong with a light briskness, but it is not astringent or unpleasant at all.

Raspberry is the prominent flavor to me, and the chocolate aspect is of the unsweetened variety, not milky and sweet. It lends an additional bottom note to the tea, emphasizing the briskness, making it great for breakfast – I had it today with an Everything Bagel – or to pair with sweets and “cut through the sugar.”

I don’t add milk or sugar to this, but it could definitely handle it and would be delicious that way. Then it would be very dessert-like on its own!

Veritaserum is clear, colourless, and odourless and is almost indistinguishable from water. The potion must mature for a full lunar phase, and is quite difficult to produce. It can be mixed with any drink, and three drops are a sufficient dose to make the drinker ‘spill out his innermost secrets’. Thus, the potion forces the drinker to tell the complete truth to any question asked to him/her.

Whouffle From Adagio’s Signature Blends


Being a Whovian, I have a soft spot for anything Doctor Who related. Especially for any Doctor Who teas. I can’t get enough of them. So I just had to try this one.

This particular blend even screams out more to me since it isn’t an earl grey blend. Whouffle is a blend of almond and raspberry black teas mixed with vanilla oolong. There is also a generous dose of cinnamon thrown in. With Adagio Signature Blends, they can heavy with the black teas and taste muddy. This has to be one of the best ones I’ve ever had.

Think about a gorgeous dessert comprised of an almond crust topped with a lush raspberry filling with a drizzle of a cinnamon syrup. That is what this tea tastes like. All of the flavors are insanely smooth and bursting with flavor.  I’m literally on my fourth infusion of the tea and although the flavors are weaker, this tea is still on point. I’ve even thrown in a shot of bourbon just to enjoy my evening even more.

Each sip of this tea has you wanting for more. This tea is sweet, smooth, and full of flavors. A wonderful substitute for any leftover Halloween candy that you might still be snacking on.

Whouffle will be a tea that I start buying in the big boy size from now on. And I would encourage everyone to do the same- even if you are a Doctor Who fan or not.

Here’s the scoop!

Frightful Nights by Woodie Barnes-McWhirter-An Adagio Signature Blend

This tea smelled so good that from the moment it arrived I was wracking my brain trying to figure out what delectable dessert it was reminding me of. The best I could come up with was apple cobbler. Then caramel came through. Apple Cobbler with caramel sauce is anything but frightful, but my daughter agreed with the name saying that this tea has captured the Halloween season for her in its aroma.

Steeped – wow, it smells so good! It really does smell like a decadent dessert that I should feel guilty for indulging in. Apple, caramel, and cinnamon join together for a lovely cobbler taste. The base is smooth and isn’t obliterated by the flavors. I drink my tea without sugar and this was still a fantastic dessert substitute. It was so sweet – naturally. If you like sugar and milk, this tea could handle it and would probably take out your dessert cravings even more.

This would be a wonderful tea to have for fall gatherings with family and friends, scenting your home with cozy comfort.
