i know i don’t have to say it every time, but i had so much fun planning the adagio buy & swap i did with moraiwe that i just feel compelled to mention it yet again.
LOOK at ALL THE TEA i get to try! looook!
and i get to share it with my sister too! double fun all around. and my sis is the reason i even read The Hobbit in the first place.** so totally awesome.

not a bad tea at all! but, ….yes but, ….i’m gonna blame the white tea for why i don’t mega love this blend. i like oolongs lots, but sometimes i just need my white in a very specific context to really enjoy it in the best way. so it’s a very yummy tea, but it just doesn’t warm my veins the way some other similarly flavored teas do.
it’s cool though, more for oddree!!

**(being an english major and an ex-english teacher and a general overall power reader, she has read LOTR and The Hobbit numerous times.) (also, with that bio under her belt, she seriously makes the BEST fic recs. and she sent me a brilliant fic that i started reading but had to stop because i hadn’t actually read The Hobbit yet. so i saw the first movie, paused the fic, read The Hobbit, then resumed the fic. all thanks to her nudges.)

edit
(in hindsight, i hope oddree doesn’t mind that this post is like all about her?? haha, i just had the stuff to say about the stuff and stuff. xo)

No that’s cool :) A friend of yours introduced me to Tolkien in the first place way back when. I feel lucky to share all the tea and fic recs with someone who gets it (and shares many fandoms too!)

OMGsrsly

I definitely second the quality fic recs. oddree, you need a rec blog or something! :D

Oh – what’s the fic? I love the hobbit!
I had already read it before, but I was quite happy to read it again in a university class on children’s lit. :)

I support this rec blog idea. Or + fanfic thread updates!
