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!

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!
