Holidays Adagio Teas

 Are you a tea drinker or do you know someone who loves tea?  Adagio Teas have a few Holiday teas for you or a loved one.  

12 Days of Christmas tea

You get 12 tins that contain one single serving of tea each. I haven't tried them yet because I am waiting to drink them on their days in December.  I love that they have ribbons to them so you can put them on your tree if you wish. I might do that.  

Tea Advent Calendar

This is a fantastic gift to give to a tea drinker. It is a fantastic way to try new flavours and of course it is nice to have a nice surprise every day in December. 

I haven't tried any of these yet because I will be waiting until  December 1st to start it but I can't wait. If you want to see my review on each individual teas during December head on over to my book Instagram account (CanadianBookAddict). I will be posting the tea I am drinking and what I am reading or watching while I am drinking the tea.   

*I have received the products mentioned for my honest review*

Fall Adagio Teas

I can't believe that Autumn is finally here. Even with all the has been going on in the world I have found that 2021 has just flown by so far.

It doesn't help that early this month it was actually warm here in my little city and I actually had the windows open and yes it was warm enough that I actually had the fan going on in the bedroom at night because it was so warm but unfortunately for the past 2 weeks now it has been cold.

What is your favourite thing to do about Autumn? As for me, I do love seeing all the pretty colours. I am not a big outdoors person other than sitting on the patio and I hate being cold so my favourite thing to do in autumn is sit in a big comfy chair or on the sofa with a warm blanket on my lap while I watch tv or play video games or just read and drink a nice hot cup of tea.

I recently got the chance to try some loose tea from Adagio Teas.

I have tried the Autumn teas sampler. That one comes with Autumn Mist Green, bonfire, pumpkin spice and honeysuckle pumpkin chai. I wasn't a huge fan of bonfire but I loved everything else.

I also got the chance to try the chai teas sampler. This one you get chai tea/masala chai. It comes with thai chai, spiced apple chai, chocolate chai and masala chai. I am liked all of the teas in this sampler but ofcourse my favourite was the chocolate chai.

Also, I just wanted to point out that Adagio Teas also have some great teaware. They have some nice double-walled infuser mugs. There are quite a few that I would love to have but unfortunately, we do not have enough room for all the ones I want.  But this one is a really nice one for the fall:

If you are a tea drinker I do recommend Adagio Teas. They do have something for everyone.

Batman: Long Halloween Part Two

 “Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.” 

The reign of terror wrought by the Holiday killer continues in Gotham City. With each calculated crime, the stakes rise as tensions boil over between the Falcone and Maroni crime families. As Batman, James Gordon and Harvey Dent race to solve the deadly puzzle, a breach at Arkham Asylum brings villainous players into the game. Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel, Batman: The Long Halloween – Part Two concludes this gripping chapter in the Dark Knight’s saga.


Back in June I had watched and reviewed Batman: Long Halloween Part One so ofcourse I just couldn't wait to watch the second part.

I did like the second part just as much as the first one. I found it well done and very entertaining.

I am giving this 5 out of 5.

Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One

  “Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.” 

Atrocious serial killings on holidays in Gotham send The World’s Greatest Detective into action – confronting both organized crime and a mysterious murderer – in Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, the next entry in the popular series of the DC Universe Movies. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the feature-length animated film – which will be accompanied by the latest DC Showcase animated short, The Losers – is set for release on Digital and Blu-ray on June 22, 2021.


Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be available on Blu-ray (USA $29.98 SRP; Canada $39.99 SRP) as well as on Digital. The Blu-ray features a Blu-ray disc with the film in hi-definition and a digital version of the movie. Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack at a later date in 2022 as a combined presentation of the film with Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two.



Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen (Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent) in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that, instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.


Well Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One is the newest DC Universe animated movie and yes I did enjoy this one. This action packed movie kept me entertained . 

I love the story and the voice acting was fantastic .

I can't wait to see part two. 

I give  this 5 out of 5.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own

 Harley Quinn (Kaley Cuoco) has finally broken things off once and for all with the Joker (Alan Tudyk) and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City in this half-hour adult animated action-comedy series. With the help of Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) and a ragtag crew of DC castoffs, Harley tries to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of Doom. Don’t worry – she’s got this. Or does she? In Season 2, Harley has defeated the Joker, and Gotham City is hers for the taking…what’s left of it, that is. Her celebration in the newly created chaos is cut short when Penguin, Bane, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler and Two-Face join forces to restore order in the criminal underworld. Calling themselves the Injustice League, they’re intent on keeping Harley and her crew from taking control as the top villains in Gotham.

Harley Quinn: The Complete First and Second Seasons is now available online and in stores near you. 


First off I have to warn you that this animated show is intended for adults only. Also if you do not like swearing do not watch this.

I am a huge fan of Harley Quinn so of course I had to watch this and I am so glad I did because well I have to say I love this show. The story is fantastic and the animation is as well.  I personally liked the actors that play each character.  

This is one I know I will be watching again in the future and I can't wait to see what will happen in the third season.

I give this 4 out of 5.

  Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own

Set in the midst of the swinging 1970s, this Elseworlds adventure finds Bruce Wayne training under a master sensei. It is here that Bruce, along with other elite students, is forged in the fire of the martial arts discipline. The lifelong bonds they form will be put to the test when a deadly menace arises from their past. It will take the combined efforts of Batman, world-renowned martial artists Richard Dragon, Ben Turner and Lady Shiva, and their mentor O-Sensei to battle the monsters of this world and beyond!


Batman: Soul of the Dragon is available now online and in stores near you.



Batman: Soul of the Dragon is an original DC Animated Movie from Warner Bros. Pictures. It is a stand-alone, “Elseworlds” adventure that takes well known characters and puts them into different or unusual places or periods of history. Batman: Soul of the Dragon is set in the 1970’s and draws from the martial arts movies of the decade in its storyline and overall design.

When a face from Bruce’s past shows up unexpectedly, he is reminded of a threat he thought long buried and forgotten: a mystic gate that sealed away an ancient evil. Although Bruce and his fellow students stopped the evil last time, it was sealed only by the sacrifice of their martial arts sensei, O-Sensei. Now years later, a cult called Kobra has rediscovered it and plans to unleash the serpent god, Nagi, upon the world. Bruce, as Batman, must team up with his fellow students Richard Dragon, Bronze Tiger and Lady Shiva to stop Kobra and end the threat once and for all.

The movie is good. The music and the art design for the characters really invoke a 1970’s vibe. Seventies’ pop culture was full of martial arts-themed movies and comics and Batman was no exception to that trend, fighting ninjas and assassins. The other characters, Richard Dragon, Lady Shiva and Bronze Tiger are all martial arts characters created in the 1970s and fit well in the story. Batman and these characters also have another thing in common; they have all been written in the 1970s by late comic writer Dennis O’Neill.

The voice acting is great, too. Warner Bros continues to use established television actors to voice the characters, with David Giuntoli (from TV’s Grimm) as Batman and Mark Dacascos from Hawaii Five-O as Richard Dragon. Both Kelly Hu and Michael Jai White both return to their role of Lady Shiva and Bronze Tiger, respectively, with Hu having previously voiced Shiva in the Batman Arkham Origins game and White played a live-action Bronze Tiger on Arrow.

It should be noted that this movie has been rated R by the MPAA for “Some Violence.” While not graphic, there are scenes with blood and characters are stabbed and limbs and heads are severed. The Canadian rating for this is PG. With any movie like this, parental guidance is suggested.

Batman Soul of the Dragon is a great addition to the DC Animated Movie scene. As an original story, it works well, while paying homage to the martial arts movies and comics of the 1970s. Fans of both should find something to like.

I give this 5 out of 5.
