Count RJ's Halloween Countdown - 12 days remain. Wouldst thou like to live deliciously? In honor of todayโ€™s witchy blend, Today's theme is dedicated to one of my favorite atmospheric horror films, The Witch! Truly a modern classic, I would recommend it for anyone looking for a chilling October watch. Todayโ€™s picture features my cauldron mug, wooden moon phase coaster, and my signature witch-inspired blend, Black Philipโ€™s Spiced Apple Chai!

Hey Sue! Thank you so much ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค
12:18 am

Yup, that one is too scary for me (I chickened out half way through the trailer) but I can see what you mean! (But the tea sounds yummy.) ๐Ÿง›Response to R.J., a group of friends talked me into going to the theater to see the Exorcist when I was a teenager... That was about it for me. ๐Ÿ˜–. I stick to old B&W Frankenstein movies or more current versions. I do like vampires, but usually the appealing ones... Frank Langella, Brad Pitt, etc.
12:24 am
user icon
Hahaha for sure! What scary movies have you seen before?
03:55 pm
user icon
Hahaha that's awesome! Can't imagine what is was like seeing The Exorcist when it first hit theaters, it's such a well-crafted horror movie. Frankenstein and the rest of the universal monsters are also a favorite for me, as is Frank Langella as Dracula! One of my favorites next to Gary Oldman and of course Bela Lugosi. Vampire movies are always so much fun and full of atmosphere. Most recently, I've loved Netflix's Midnight Mass. It was written by Mike Flanagan who also wrote Hill House & Bly Manor. Midnight Mass has a few scary moments, but it's so well done, emotional, and just beautifully written. [Small spoiler] It has some of my favorite Vampire scenes in recent memory.

So as you know RJ, I read spoilers of โ€œscaryโ€ things before potentially watching them (or deciding nope, letโ€™s dodge that bullet, haha) and this is something I do want to see. Fingers crossed my husband will agree to give it a try before Halloween!

There's a few Christmas/holiday products on the Christmas Preview page under Gifts....not sure if that just got put up or if I just missed it. The little stocking stuffer/Spice Jubilee/Hearty treat loose tea tins are so cute every year and fit in stockings easily. Last year I gave the 12 Days of Christmas set to my daughter -- she loved it! I already have the Spice Jubilee tea bags in the pretty tins in my cart. Has anybody bought the tea chest before?? I'm so curious about that one! My advent calendar is coming this week -- the blue looks so lovely! Can't wait to see it in person!

Happy to answer any questions about the tea chest!
09:31 am
user icon
Is the tea chest designed for tea bag pouches, or portions like the CT? I'm thinking it might be a more stylish way to hold all the samples for the whole month (if they fit)...
01:39 pm
user icon
And can packets stand vertically (like in the old communiTEA box), or only flat (as pictured with included tea bags)
01:47 pm
user icon
Hi Victoria! The chest is designed for our individually wrapped teabags (we call these "singles") and can fit 5 stacked per section. The singles are a little bigger than portions. Portions will fit, but have more wiggle room. The chest could fit a month of communiTEA portions inside and maybe then some :)
03:38 pm
user icon
Elizabeth - as for standing vertically I want to say yes. I can test it out for sure tomorrow when I'm at the warehouse. I don't have one at home to make sure that the lid will close completely if they stand vertically. Please drop a reminder in chat if you can! I'll do my best to remember, but it's an eventful time of year.
03:39 pm
user icon
It is a beautiful chest. I like the long narrow shape of the old CommuniTea box, since it fits in my cupboard well. However, this is pretty enough to sit out on the counter. I would also like to stand the tea up, because that is what I like best for keeping a month in order, so will be anxious to hear what Bridgette finds out.
05:44 pm
user icon
If the current tea chest won't fit CT packets standing up, maybe Adagio can consider creating a different version, shaped like the old CommuniTea box, and offer it as another higher tier of CT accolades... *hint hint*
06:05 pm
user icon
I have one and just did a test. I can fit 10 in vertically but the lid doesn't close. Here are photos: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1S2HK5euLZT_4_fQSrv5rKq_San6WS7sh
06:53 pm
user icon
Though I won't be storing the packets in a vertical orientation, I will say I have had this Adagio Tea Chest for a number of years now and it is worth the money. It's gorgeous so looks wonderful on the counter. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. I also do prefer to store the tea flat anway, because then you can easily see what tea is in which place and everything looks so nice.
06:57 pm
user icon
I would love to hear about the tea chest too!
07:15 am

I actually run a small business selling them at Renaissance Festivals and other events! This little witch is one of two little dragons that didn't sell last weekend at Dragon Festival! No idea why. She's adorable. Thank you so much!!! Most of the dragons I post here are from my personal collection, or are open orders I'm working on that have already sold, so I rarely post one that's available that isn't made to order :)

I guess Adagio isn't promoting it on the first page of their website. You can order Earl Grey Bella Luna today. That Advent Calendar does look beautiful with the blue cover.
10:27 am
user icon
Hey Andrea! You're correct :) Everyone's been so excited for the Advent Calendars that we wanted to give that a little more time on the homepage. We'll switch to Earl Grey Bella Luna for a few hours today, but it is available all day long!

My daughter (13) loves art, mostly water color or painting. We just bought her new artsy markers so she wanted to add her own art work to my tea picture today, The Little Witch.
10:58 am

I loved her picture - and your geometric teacup!

Thank you! The teacup was an estate sale find. ๐Ÿ’•

For those of you that add Cream into your tea... How much do you start with? I have been using Half and Half and i keep thinking it takes over the flavor of the tea. What's your go to creamer?
11:03 am
user icon
I use half n half but just a teeny splash.
11:20 am
user icon
Half & half and on occasion sweet cream. I just use a few drops. Maybe 0.5 - 1 teaspoons at most.
11:31 am
user icon
I use the little half and half single serving cups, and usually use 2 with most teas. I enjoy the creamy richness!
11:32 am
user icon
Most recently I ran out of milk so out of desperation I pulled out the powdered milk, sounds gross but Iโ€™m now a fan of it in my tea! Adds creaminess without watering it down. I generally add a scant tablespoon to my 10-12 oz cup.
11:40 am
user icon
Oooh!!! 19 times out of 20 I wonโ€™t add a creamer at all but for some chais it feels right. I got those single-serving ones for such a need but it feels wasteful and I do have powdered milk as well. It doesnโ€™t get gritty or anything?
12:54 pm
user icon
I usually use a generous splash of half and half and I agree that it often mutes the flavor too much. That is part of how I rate a tea--how much do I need to alter it with milk and sugar in order to enjoy it. I really prefer tea that needs nothing and Chinese blacks are my go-to. I have experimented with coconut/almond Better Half, but that really changes the flavor. You could try diving the CommuniTEA sample into smaller cups and experiment with different amounts of cream or put the cream into a cup first and then add part of the tea so your original cup is unadulterated.
12:27 pm
user icon
I use heavy cream and I use 1/4 -1/2 tsp and I use it for chai and black tea.
03:09 pm
user icon
Ditto
03:26 pm
ET
I really like using nido, which is a dry whole milk powder.
09:39 pm

You all have such great decorations and make lovely photographs and I can't be bothered to get my Halloween stuff out of storage. According to RJ and Age, I still have 12 days. So you get another plant photo--at least until I run out of different species to showcase. ;)
11:20 am
user icon
Kirstin, I'm with you. I do actually want to decorate, but halloween decor has been low on my priority list. Christmas. Christmas will start showing up Nov. 1. I don't mess around with that ๐Ÿ˜†
11:24 am
user icon
Elizabeth, me2! I decided this is the year I am going through every single Christmas box and sort through to hopefully have a huge carload to donate. So this year our plan is to start decorating earlier than ever (for us) In the start of November. Thus, aside from a few pumpkins ๐ŸŽƒ we havenโ€™t done much fall decor
11:45 am
user icon
Hallmark had Christmas programming start before Halloween last year so I finished up making trick-or-treat bags alternating between Simpsons Treehouse of Horror marathons and silly Christmas fare on TV. Hallmark Countdown to Christmas starts this Friday!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
01:00 pm
user icon
Christmas is my time to decorate, too. Although in our cat-centric home, I do not go all out like past years. Everything here must be unbreakable and cat-safe! (I had to store the old tree trimmings and switch to silk flowers ;-)
08:07 pm
user icon
Unfortunately I havenโ€™t been able to find my Halloween decorations since we moved two years ago. To be honest, I havenโ€™t looked very well either. Christmas stuff is ready to go though and I may just buy more๐Ÿ˜‰

Sigh. Starting my chat streak over again. Anyone else on day 1 trying to get to 30? I need an accountabili-buddy โ˜บ๏ธ

I gave up on trying. I'm continually losing my streak. I do miss the laugh/crying emoji though.

Hi Kristen, my chat streak fell victim to the technical glitch and reset 6 days ago. I really was here but apparently my tech was not, lol. How can I help to keep you motivated?

One day of drinking tea in my new forest buddies adagio double wall mug has left tea stains inside that I am unable to scrub away with soap and water. Does anyone have a remedy on how to remove the tea stains?
11:49 am
user icon
Keep the mug full of tea so you don't see the tea stains? ๐Ÿ˜
11:56 am
user icon
Perfect plan!
12:04 pm
user icon
I fully endorse this recommendation.
01:25 pm
user icon
The struggle is real, I'll take your advise Jeff.
06:41 pm
user icon
My CommuniTea mug is the same style and does the same thing - I've found a soft sponge won't do it, I need to use something like a Scrub Daddy to get the discoloration off. There are three small spots along the bottom that won't come off for love or money, though.
12:00 pm
user icon
a swipe with a Mr. Clean Magic eraser is helpful and so is Bon Ami non scratching cleanser. It's gentle and good at making stains on washable surfaces disappear, ceramic and porcelain included. Those are my regular go tos for gentle cleaning.
12:17 pm
user icon
A scrub with vinegar + baking soda paste can do it. Best to drink tea fast in white mugs and wash quickly, the tannins like to stick to the ceramic. Some people like to build up the tannins/oils though for more tea flavor - though this is typically done with Yixing... I've seen some very dark insides of mugs though >.> lol
12:04 pm
user icon
Any hints on removing tea stains from teeth?๐Ÿ˜
12:14 pm
user icon
Mary, I use baking soda.
06:44 pm
user icon
OxyClean added to the dishwasher usually works for me
12:17 pm
user icon
I realize this is not a reply to the teeth question, but it just happens to fall in after it - made me laugh out loud - I needed that, thanks Ruth :-)
08:19 pm
user icon
Wear your tea-stains proudly (for the teeth!)! Hah! I just always have a cup of water next to my mug and take small sips of water and swish every now and then to help prevent stains :)
12:23 pm
user icon
I scrub mine with baking soda mixed with a tiny bit of water and it takes stains right off. I like Jeff's solution, too, though!
12:41 pm
user icon
Vinegar or magic eraser
12:50 pm
user icon
Same, especially sad since white interiors are nice for seeing the true color of the tea. Would this be the same method of removing buildup from kettles or stains from an infuser? I know some people swear by vinegar and some by denture cleaners. Iโ€™m getting to that point and could use some advice.
01:06 pm
user icon
I've always had success with first going in with warm water and dish soap with my sponge. Then, I go in hard and heavy with the vinegar/baking soda paste! Works well for anything that's tea stained - stainless steel, ceramic, spoons, etc
01:39 pm
user icon
I use the denture tablets for my ingenutea. Works very well.
08:20 pm
user icon
My go-to is Bar Keepers Friend. It works amazingly well and doesn't require a ton of scrubbing.
01:48 pm
user icon
Someone said denture tablets the other day I think.
02:33 pm
user icon
Denture tablets are great for for tea stains! Just fill your mug with hot water, drop in a tablet and let it soak. No elbow grease required! :-)
02:37 pm
user icon
I like Jeff's plan, but if it really bugs you, let it sit with a mild bleach rinse for a couple minutes...bye bye tea stains! Just be sure to rinse thoroughly otherwise you'll think you're drinking tea made with municipal tap water....ugghh!
08:16 pm
user icon
VInegar might work...just make sure you rinse it really well after or your tea will taste really really bad :)

Fox has such a wistful look today. Was he thinking about breakfast?
11:57 am

No, I think he was wondering what trouble he could cause before I could stop him. But then he was good boy and sat pretty!

Oh, he's too sweet to cause trouble (unless Taco Cat enters the picture). Such a sweet little fellow...right??

Happy Thank Your Cleaner Day.... Hope they mean person cleaner, not vacuum cleaner! Would someone let my husband and children know. I am accepting thanks in the form of Tea and Books this year ;) (Also, adding to syllable counting Boil-ing is 2 syllables... I was torn between 2 and 3... Bo-ya-ling!)
12:08 pm

If only the people who don't clean knew about this day we could start to celebrate it.

Thank your cleaner? I am my own cleaner. I thank myself for not working so hard (cue messy house).

You are not alone!

I loved this tea; and its smooooth mouthfeel was a bonus!
12:08 pm

Loved it this morning too.
12:12 pm

I enjoyed this tea much better than other pumpkin spice teas. I think it's the caramel and hazelnut!
12:18 pm
user icon
Didn't like it plain so added sweetened condensed milk and it's delicious now!!
12:19 pm

I added that to an earl grey the other day then I had 3 more cups. It is way addicting for me.
06:49 pm
user icon
I'm on the low side of ambivalent for this tea, but running my chocolate sandwich cookies in it tastes GREAT
12:42 pm
user icon
Under a boil water notice, glad I have two electric kettles! But it does make getting the tea leaves out of the strainers a bit more difficult since I shouldn't use the sink faucet
12:44 pm

Yummy tea today!

This tastes exactly like Swedish pepparkakor gingerbread cookies, definitely a winner.

Feel like I've been on a losing streak with the teas lately... I'm curious about this one but the hazelnut has me worried. How strong is that flavor compared to the others?
01:10 pm
user icon
The hazelnut and chestnut teas can be really strong, so I definitely get the concern! This one felt very well-balanced. You could definitely taste the hazelnut, so if you hate it, you may want to skip this one. But I didn't feel that it overwhelmed the other flavors.
02:11 pm
user icon
I would say hazelnut is the primary flavor in this tea, with everything else balancing nicely as backup. I loved it but if you're not into hazelnut it may be too much.
04:46 pm

This brew was nice and warm-feeling.
01:10 pm

I agree

Hi all. New to this. Did anyone get the nov month yet? Usually it takes a week to get my stuff and my order says it shipped last Monday. Went to check and it says no label created and not received. Reached out to adagio and no help. Wondering if I should be worried?

This isn't terrible. It's a nice drink, I just don't love hazelnut and caramel flavoring
02:46 pm

I have to be in the right mood to enjoy hazelnut I think. This is a nice tea blend but the hazelnut is very overpowering

Man this was tasty! Lightly spicy with some sweetness, it didn't need anything added to be a lovely treat while I beat Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time. I can't recommend that game enough.
03:34 pm
user icon
This was a lovely tea. I didn't find the hazelnut too overwhelming and a little sugar made it perfect. As it so often happens when you're a teacher, I wasn't able to finish my cup when it was still hot and finished it cold because I've learned I like some teas better that way. This wasn't one of those for me.

Because several of the gang mentioned it as the fave of the breakfast teas, I was investigating Scottish Breakfast. I just noticed we will be sipping it in Novemberโ€™s CommuniTEA ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿซ– Yay!
06:03 pm
user icon
My usual photo is up now. This seems like a nice flavor, but it's still quite hot at the moment. I should let it cool a bit more so it's easier to drink. Also, I might sweeten this one; a lot of the spicier blends seem to benefit from added sweetness for me.
06:12 pm
user icon
I like the color comparison photos, check them everyday! Agree about sweetening the spice teas. It really enhances the flavor
