At first I was just going to do one custom blend as a promotional thing/giveaway dealie for the upcoming release of Time Heals, but then…
Which led to…
You can tell which labels I made and which were done by the lovely Skyla Dawn Cameron especially for this evil idea. (She’s such an enabler – she wins at eviltry.)
Look, it’s TEA, okay? You know how I am! I’m an ADDICT and I HAVE A PROBLEM, okay? I know that.
I know it, I don’t care, and I’m going to be a tea junkie UNTIL I DIE.
I have a whole list of other teas I want to blend (no, really, I mean it – it’s a literal, physical, list sitting right here beside me!), but they do take time to create, and I want to try them all first before I share them with you, etc. You get it.
Part of that time is what the eviltry afoot mentioned in #5 of the previous quick update post.
#4 is still out there. Lurking. *insert evil laugh here, because that’s about standards*
As for what I’m going to do with these blends, the answer is obvious: I’m going to drink them.
Well, the ones I’ve ordered. Which is all but one at the moment. The Light in a Dark World tea was just blended tonight and I haven’t tried that one, so that’s at your own risk if you’re inclined to order it*.
*I feel obligated to note here that THESE TEAS ARE JUST BLENDED AT MY BEHEST. I do not get any money from your purchase of these teas, nor kickbacks, nor anything really. I was not paid to create them, nor was I paid to pimp them here to you. These were made as a promotional tool paid for by me in order to give away to my amazing fans and fellow tea junkies, and for you to buy yourself and enjoy if you’re so inclined to try something I’ve put together as a little fun tie-in for my books. Please, please don’t feel obligated to buy them, because it’s not about that and not at all why I’ve mentioned these here.
Again, I don’t get any benefit from you buying them other than the evil smug satisfaction of knowing you’re drinking a cup of tea I had a hand in creating. I’ll be even more smug if you enjoy the blend and leave a stellar review of it on the Adagio website telling everyone what an awesome cuppa I’ve put together.
That said, go forth and enjoy a cup or fifteen from Adagio! Go nuts! Make your OWN custom blend! You can do that for free, right there at the top of the menu (but if you want to try your blend, you have to buy it). You can do it just once for fun, make it a series thing like I did, make it private or share it for all to enjoy, as I have. I must say, I’m really, really pleased with the Evil Tea I blended. I’m drinking it right now, and I’m certain it will be one of my very favorites of all time.
As said above, these were created in part for promotional/giveaway purposes, and I intend to have the Time Heals blend on hand for just that. Keep an eye on the blog for upcoming promo dates and such! The wonderful Jennifer of Books Make Me Happy has again graciously offered to put together a blog tour for this release, so stay tuned!
