On occasion, I’m moved to buy things because the planets have aligned.

Let me explain. I like to look at items on sale, but I don’t convince myself to buy them merely because they’re on sale. I only buy them, generally, if they’re something I can (and will) actually use.

On rare occasion, I’ll make an exception…such as when I find something that looks as though it really shouldn’t exist. At all. Because I’m in such disbelief, I’ll laughingly buy it.

This tea was an intersection of those two habits. Look at the name: Orange Chocolate Green Tea. Any two of those things sound like they’d go well together, yes? BUT NOT ALL THREE. THREE IS RIGHT OUT.

Except…it’s…not bad! Not great, either. It’s kind of like when you’ve got a dessert sampler platter and you’ve eaten the delightful morsels it once held…and you’re surreptitiously trying to get those last little crumbs of everything up because it would be a shame to waste it. Everything sort of gets mashed together on your fork, but because you were familiar with the distinct flavours of each thing beforehand, you don’t mind it as much as you otherwise might.

It’s…a curiositea. Yes.

Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.

At least, I hope you were quoting Monty Python. Otherwise I just sounded completely insane. [Then again, what else is new?]
