So I made like 4 logos so each post will have a different one. Just to keep things fresh! 😉

Please feel free to share Teas if you are a hardcore tea drinker, I would love the suggestions.

Good Afternoon,

I hope you are ready for my next afternoon tea and books.

It’s October, lets talk spooky books for the spooky season but first a yummy tea!


Wicked Teas from Adagio Teas

These teas are a limited addition tea. I can’t wait to see what they come out with for Christmas. I am totally loving the taste of these teas. They are in sample containers that are so cute. The entire set was $24 and I received a free tea sample of my zodiac sign. (which was pretty cool and smells amazing) Lets talk about the teas.

Descriptions/Images are from the website.

Bat Brew: Fire burn and cauldron bubble, our Bat Brew you’re sure to guzzle! We’ve taken our Chocolate Chai to a new level by blending it with chocolate chips and festive sprinkles, resulting in an indulgent sweet treat. One sip and you’ll feel like you’ve just raided the trick-or-treat bag… minus the guilt. High Caffeine

black tea, cinnamon bark, ginger root, cocoa nibs, natural chocolate flavor, natural cinnamon flavor, chocolate chips, confetti sprinkles

Candy Apple Concoction: Who needs to go bobbing for apples when you can steep a sweet cup of our Candy Apple Concoction? A taste reminiscent of the trick-or-treating and carnival favorite, making for a decadent treat. It’s even blended with red sugar crystals that appear to have chipped off the glossy candy coating and fallen right into your cup. High Caffeine

black tea, apple pieces, natural caramel apple flavor, cinnamon bark, natural vanilla flavor, red sugar crystals

Cat Scratch: No, it’s not witch-ful thinking… our Cat Scratch blend is wickedly delightful! Indulgent and robust, this tea blends black cat shaped sprinkles with cinnamon and our customer favorite… Tiger Eye. WARNING: Don’t steep this tea too late, or you may start to think you’re hearing things going bump in night! High Caffeine

black tea, cinnamon pieces, natural caramel flavor, cocoa nibs, natural vanilla flavor, natural chocolate flavor, confetti sprinkles

Ghoul Gulp: We’ve got a spook-takular tea that is sure to satisfy any ghost, goblin, and ghoul. Perfect for late night hauntings, our frightfully smooth decaf vanilla tea is accented with coconut pieces and topped off with mini ghost shaped sprinkles. The perfect accompaniment after a night of trick-o-treating. No Caffeine

decaf ceylon tea, natural vanilla flavor, coconut pieces, white ghost sprinkles

Monster Mash: You’ll be screaming with delight over our mischievously marvelous Monster Mash! Combining both caramel and cream tea flavors with ghastly green jimmies and bone-chilling candy eyeballs. One cup of this brew and you will feel like you’ve risen from the dead. High Caffeine

black tea, natural creme flavor, natural caramel flavor, green jimmies, candy eye balls

Pumpkin Potion: Take one sip of our Pumpkin Potion and you’re sure to fall under its spell. This naturally caffeine-free concoction contains our ever popular Honeybush Pumpkin Chai with orange pumpkin shaped sprinkles and a dash of cocoa nibs. Whip up a pot of this brew in your favorite cauldron for a perfectly spook-tacular treat! No Caffeine

honeybush tea, cinnamon bark, cardamom, ginger root, cocoa nibs, natural pumpkin spice flavor, safflower, orange pumpkin sprinkles

Yes they have sprinkled in them and they are so cute. I would think the sprinkles add a bit of sugar but not enough to really notice. So far I am loving the Pumpkin Potion and the Candy Apple is amazing cold. On my list next to try is Monster Mash since I love black tea. If they are still available they are totally worth grabbing. I wish I could get more Pumpkin because I LOVE that one so much.


To go with my spooky teas I thought I would share with you my 6 spooky books I loved….

Can we just take a minute to love on these covers even Relic just give off such a creepy vibe. The twist at the end still messes with my head, same as And the Trees Crept in. I decided to go a little different this time instead of giving you my favorites. I love these books just as much and think they need a lot more attention. I know a lot of people didn’t like The Devils you Know but I totally loved that book, it was super weird and the end was another one that totally had me thinking.

The entire Lockwood and Co. series is fantastic. I still need to read the last book but totally my favorite series and really creepy. I am trying to get my daughter to read them. Small Spaces is new and a really good read, it has some creepy/spooky elements and great for tweens. Ten will always be one I really enjoy since I knew the story already but loved Gretchen’s telling.

What are some of your favorite tea flavors and spooky books?

Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by

Happy Reading! xx

  1. Oh I love the look of the teas (especially the high caffeine part!) and I love how they included sprinkles. I’ve only read The Screaming Staircase but I loved it and really need to get back to that series.
