let me tell you what happened.
i got this awesome swap from jump62359 and i just started enthusiastically drinking them. dove right in.

however, it seems that 3 teas i picked in a row to try from the swap all had chai in them. chai chai chai. and this tea itself was so kinda dull, that i just kept procrastinating making a note. and then i would brew another cup. and try to pay better attention while sipping. and maybe figure the tea out more. maybe it would click or something? but nope. not this one.

(i would brew it. taste it. taste it some more. i would get bored. it would get cold.)

what i do love about this tea is that it makes me think of Elementary’s Sebastian Moran who i thought was very good and menacing. and still i “felt something” for the man. he was cast very well. (i suspect casting is why Elementary has grown on me so strongly.) (also the show has/had a trans-woman casted and portrayed it and not in any kind of weird or outlandish way, she was written and acted with depth and nuance.) (also all the women on the show (all two of them? hah) aren’t annoying. which is basically unheard of on american tv.)(i ramble…)

the other thing i like about this tea is that Tea Sipper apparently loves it! she has a much more sensitive palate than me. i can say that with confidence and very little background information because basically EVERYBODY has a more sensitive palate than i do!! hahah
i still have a few more cups of this so i will give it a rest for a while and then try again, while channeling Tea Sipper through my brew. i love the learning puzzle that’s sometimes tea.

Tea Sipper

Oh good, I’ll be channeled :D I wouldn’t say I have a sensitive palate.. I don’t know. I tried watching Elementary a couple times but I kept figuring out the twists way before Sherlock. I do not like to be smarter than my Sherlocks. :D I’ve got too many shows to watch anyway.

too many showz,… ikr tell me about it!
and i confess, i may be a huge sherlock and ‘magic’ and scifi show watcher, but i do have my consistent share of guilty pleasures (SVU & Bones basically). so yes i agree that Elementary basically falls in that category. ie; formulaic non-magic-themed american tv.
i wouldn’t really encourage anyone else to watch it, but i also have no intention of stopping myself! :)

Tea Sipper I’m very happy I recently learned the BBC Sherlock isn’t really going to stop.. they will just keep taping new episodes whenever they feel like it!
Shmiracles

that is the MOST exciting! and sure i’d like more episodes each year, but really each episode is SO rewatchable and the quality is so high, that i wouldn’t wanna trade quantity for quality ever.
