From Adagio Teas

Alas, poor Yorick/Yoda! Combine your disbelieving Star Wars vs. Hamlet histrionics with this blend of chocolate chip’s dark side, the tart raspberry patch flavors of Naboo, and the united Danish front of cream ceylon.

Centuries ago, in Hamlet’s Denmark — as in a galaxy far, far away — a prince was visited by his father’s ghost, who demanded the son seek revenge for his father’s death. After this rather spooky encounter, however, it took the prince a long, mad, melancholy time to do anything about this news, almost as if he had to go through intensive training to figure out whether or not he could truly defeat his enemy. This blend was created for Star Wars and Hamlet fans alike, because, well, why not? Tea and crumpets, fantasy science fiction and Shakespearean drama, chocolate and raspberries … some things just go weirdly together. (Artistic props to kevinbolk from deviantART for drawing the base of Darth and Luke’s comic interpretation used on the label here.)

Created by: Christa Y
Contains: chocolate chip, raspberry patch, cream

Long time, no tea-logging. Same old busy song.

I’ve been on a chocolate-raspberry flavor-kick for awhile. Thus, in pursuit of said kick, I threw a chocolate-raspberry blend together, one in which my craving could hopefully be satisfied without excessive caloric interference. And because chocolate should really not go with raspberries — cocoa-milk and tart berries, whaaa?! — and yet they do go together, and in fact they go together so well, I named this blend according to two other things that should not go well together, and yet when you let your crazy English-Literature-meets-Film-Studies mind wander over them, they do — these two things being, of course, Star Wars and Hamlet.

(See label and description for more information on this seemingly inane mash-up, yo: https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=23221 Why be a broken record, eh whot?)

All long-winded introductions aside, Something Rotten in Darthmark wound up giving me exactly what I wanted: sweet raspberries, dark chocolate, and a nonsensical, pop-culturey chuckle each time it emerges from the cupboard. With a pinch of my usual milk and sweetener, it becomes a chocolate-raspberry truffle in liquid form, one that surely would have kept Ophelia from her seemingly purposeless madness and prevented the Vader family from shouting negative exclamations for no ultimate purpose.

Take it away, closing tea-haiku:

Join the dark sweet cup,
choc’lit raspberries! (Don’t let
your uncle have some.)
