okay yes i have a ton of samples to try. 64 to be exact.
not to mention 25 reviews to write for teas i’ve already tasted.
but why would that stop me from still buying more tea and making more blends?!?!?
Be Nice To Clint.
this blend still needs a little work. but it’s a good start. it just needs more bite is all. i like the puerh because it gives it a leathery note, but i think it mellows out the other flavors too much. the candy apple is barely there despite how “sweet” tasting all the reviews online seem to say it is. so ya takin out the puerh. probably gonna go bold and try gunpowder. i know weird i know.
candy apple – because, CIRCUS!
pu erh dante – leather and smoke grrrrr
tiger eye – EYE. eyes. ya know, kinda rhymes with “sniper eyes” er, um, that
cornflowers – because, PURPLE!
red peppercorn – “Mild peppery taste with a hint of acidic sweetness” duh you dangerous snarky yet adorable jerk you
i’m making a Hawkeye blend because even though the blenders on adagio get so many characters exactly right, i haven’t seen or tried a good blend that really pins down Hawkeye.
and he is a hard one to pin down. the sassiness of Tony, the ruthlessness of Natasha, the endearing everyman of Casual Steve. Clint has a lot of faces and facets. and you have to if you’re going to be a Secret Agent and a SHEILD Sniper and a Circus Orphan and a Landlord and an Assassin and a Babysitter for your neighbor and an uncertain Dog Owner. and unless you read the comics and read fic and watch the cartoons and the movies i don’t see why anyone would get all his parts and pieces. so no hard feelings.
