Do you love tea? Are you an excitable fangirl/fanboy? You're gonna love this

Back in October, I was excited to see that Jamba Juice had an anticipatory smoothie specifically created for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 2.

(I saw Breaking Dawn Pt. 2 on Monday, by the way. *Possible Spoilers* I really liked it - except the part where I learned I am NOT ready for anything bad to happen to Carlisle Cullen. In Alice's vision when Carlisle was killed by Aro, I think I was more upset than Esme was. Fortunately, it was only a vision. I should've remembered there was a happy ending, but it's been several years since I read the book.)

Today, thanks to the magic of Tumblr, I learned there's something even better - Adagio Teas' Fandom Signature Blends line. Remember when I said I wanted drinks to go with all of my favorite books (I specifically mentioned a Thin Red Cranberry-Lime smoothie)? This is probably the closest thing on the earth.

The Twilight fandom gets its set of teas - including a Carlisle blend.

The other vampire franchises have signature tea blends, too. There are some for The Vampire Diaries. This one actually sounds like kind of a weird combination (sour apple, sesame and vanilla), but it's Stefan, so I might like it.

Not left out of the fun is True Blood. This one actually looks like it's red.

(While we're on the subject of True Blood, Season 6 spoilers are already starting to appear. So are some spoilers - or at least the synopsis - for Dead Ever After, Charlaine Harris' final Sookie Stackhouse novel.)

Harry Potter has not one, but several tea collections. One is specifically devoted to potions.

I don't really have a favorite favorite character from the Harry Potter series (other than Harry, of course), but right near the top of my list is Remus Lupin. If only there was a Tonks tea...and it changed color...

The Hunger Games trilogy is also represented; you can get blends including Katniss, Peeta, Gale, Cinna, Rue and Finnick. You can also "ship" two teas and get them together - the Katniss and Peeta combo, for example. So cool.

These are the fandoms that most interest me - all book-related. There are others: Adventure Time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dexter, Dr. Who, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Legend of Korra, Sailor Moon, Supernatural, Teen Wolf and, of course, The Avengers. It wouldn't really be a collection of fandoms unless there was a Loki tea. (It contains gunpowder.)

I'm really going to freak out if someone creates a Person of Interest fandom (Irrelevant) tea collection. Obviously, Finch's would be a sencha green tea. The Reese tea would probably also have gunpowder. Carter's would have notes of jasmine. The Bear tea would taste like doughnuts.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with Adagio Teas. I just think they're cool. I haven't tasted them yet, so I can't tell you what any of these blends taste like. Some are herbal, and some have caffeine.
