‘Metalli’ and ‘Nimhoa’ by Daniele Scerra and ‘Mermaid Song’ by Leonardo Hernandez; pieces like this are very inspiring to me, especially when running RP campaigns.
Three words. Apps and Zerts.
I was so excited by Adagio’s Crazy Cupboard contest because it gave me a reason to take photos of my Tolkien Teas alongside my Tolkien collection. (Okay like i ever needed a reason).
I left out my samples and my other fandom teas, because I think this is pretty crazy. A few months ago, I had no intention of making tea blends. I love Cara’s and Daunt’s teas (we drink them at work!), and I was happy going along drinking Watson and Wolverine. (still two of my favorites.)
But after talking to my Tolkien friends, it really became clear that I could participate in the Tolkien fandom in a way that I never could before, and thus, Tolkien Teas were born.
Pictured here, alongside my Tolkien collection (gosh, it’s taken around 13 years to amass), are:
Boromir, White Tea of Gondor, Barrels of Dwarves, Lembas Tea, Wizard’s Grey, Evenstar, Arkenstone, Fool’s Took, Misty Mountain Brew, Prancing Pony Pint, Bilbo’s Pantry, Balrog’s Breath, 111th Birthday, Majestic Thorin, Second Breakfast, Thorin Tea, Smaug’s Dream Tea, The Nazgul Special-tea, and Unexpected party.
Thank you all for being amazing. Really. I am so happy to be able to love Tolkien and his world, characters, creations, with you all, and I honestly feel like tea blending has brought me a new set of friends (FAMILY.)
I need to stop before I start weeping all over you.
Let’s have dinner. ;)

These should be the next three Star Wars movies, it’s fucking perfect.
Agreed, but they won’t be. :(
I need to read these already.
Same. Along with Death Star, and others.
New Tolkien Teas <3
Watched Two Towers and Return of the King with my man, and he said, “You should make teas based on the pipe-weed that they all love” and these blends were born :D
