When you first open the can to this tea blend the smell of the green chai is like a punch in the face. It's powerful and fragrant and feels like dragon's breath. The tea is beautiful and delicate with hints of orange peel and visually mimics Daenerys' green dragon, Rhaegal.
As a HUGE fan of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire Series (a.k.a. Game of Thrones), I have to tell you how excited I was to see the fandom teas on Adagio's website. They don't just leave it Game of Thrones - they have other tea blends based on your favorite characters and favorite shows. I also ordered Dr. Who teas for my husband and I'll be reviewing those after I get through these teas.
I've got several tea reviews coming down the pipe line on these Game of Thrones tea blends and you can get your own for only $19!
Rhaegal's Fire is a delicious blend of Adagio's Green Chai, Vanilla Green and Gunpowder teas made by Aun-Juli Riddle. You can order it's own sample or you can get a small taste in the Game of Thrones Tea Sampler Set - which is what I did.
This tea is crisp and fragrant with subtle tons of cinnamon for the heat and vanilla for the smooth aftertaste. The lighter of the tea sample set, it's great for an afternoon tea.
This tea is recommended to steep at 180 degrees for 2 minutes and is blended with green tea, gunpowder, cinnamon bark, ginger root, orange peels, cloves, cardamom, natural vanilla flavor and natural spice flavors.
I rate this tea 4.5 stars out of 5 - it's great but not my all time favorite.
Still cool to be drinking dragon fire!
