adagio blend


The best tea is fandom tea! Check out the HeTEAlia blends on Adagio Teas. I created these blends myself because there didn’t seem to be any good Hetalia fandom teas available so I made my own. if theres a character i’m missing that you’d like a tea for just let me know and i’ll get right on it!

things i am grateful for
  • My garden was almost totally destroyed by a pressure-washing crew but my two favorite plants survived and are growing faster than before
  • Someone bought one of my Adagio blends so I had enough points to get more of my favorite tea (coconut ceylon) which I’ve been out of for months
  • As of today I’ve been married to Mr. Pudding for 11 years 💕 
  • Only 4 weeks to go until we’re done paying the lawyer
  • A job that lets me do my own thing and doesn’t add to my stress level (except during year-end but that’s over)
  • my BFF @thegreyhenley
  • two youtube dorks that my BFF @thegreyhenley made me watch last Christmas and now I’m wallowing in more trash than Templeton at the fair 

Sigh no more Pedrazar fans!

Baltahzar Jones (aka Reuben Hudson) now has an official tea. Because Balthazar is so calm and his music so relaxing, his tea is a chamomile tea, that also include mint and rooibos. There’s also some spearmint included (which is not a compliment to a Pedro blend what are you talking about?)

You can save $5 with GC 6109278848. AND because Balthazar is part of a ship you can get 10% off of both Balthazar and Pedro’s teas. The international shipping costs are not great but the best way to circumvent that is through a large group orders.

PS NMTD fans and cast members, I have no idea how to let Reuben know this is a thing so if someone could pass this on that would be great!

As always, amazing thank yous go to wholelottaductape. She is the best!

iris-siberica  asked:

I really love the designs of your OCs! If I may ask, how do you usually think of a character? Is it an active process or do you get random ideas? Oh, and have you thought about possibly making Adagio tea blends for some of your characters?

I don’t actually know enough about tea to make actual tea blends for my OCs… Like, I’ve only had tea maybe a grand total for 3 times in my life.

As for how I make up characters, there are two different processes:

99.9% of the time, a character is made from pure, self-indulgent aesthetic. I’ll get an idea for a character and think it’s cool and then I’ll draw it. I’ve only come up with a character because I didn’t have anyone else who could fit the role I needed filled in a story a handful of times! Usually I can just re-purpose an old character to fit the bill, but sometimes you just don’t have anyone that will work and you gotta start from scratch!



letslipthedogsofwar That’s right you have your own tea now as well! I figured in celebration of impending #LLL, All Around Great Guy and The Prince of Messina needed a tea! This is the Pedro Donaldson blend: Citron Green Tea, Spearmint and Gunpowder tea. It’s refreshing, grassy with a taste of bitter (cause he got a little mean towards the end). But it is still bright and clean cause he is still a good guy beneath the Trash Prince.

You can save $5 with GC code 3493806172. And while you are at it you can purchase other NMTD teas in the collection! DISCLAIMER: The shipping prices outside of the US are ridiculous! If anyone wants to do international shipping the best method is to one large group order together.

As always the credit for this amazing artwork goes to wholelottaductape. This could not happen without her!
