She may look like an ordinary Edwardian roadster, but beneath that bonnet is more power than meets the eye, a touch of sass, and an indomitable spirit. Bright and energetic, this blend combines the sweet-tart flavours of grapefruit, lemon, and orange, guaranteed to keep your engines purring like a kitten, no matter how hard you hit the gas pedal. Come along, dear fellows! Beep beep!

How does grapefruit work so well with oolong? I honestly thought it was going to be slightly gross when I first heard of the idea, and it turns out it’s pretty much actually my favourite thing to pair with oolong tea. In a pinch, I’ve added grapefruit juice to oolong. It’s not as good as Bessie blend, but in a pinch, it works!

Bessie, though. Oh Bessie, you beautiful creature! This tea smells absolutely AMAZING. The dominant fragrance is brisk, bright grapefruit, flanked by the orange and lemon. The oolong lends it a little wholesome substance beneath the citrus. This is one of those uncommon teas I find myself enjoying equally with and without sugar. Bessie’s brisk, energetic, and refreshing, and absolutely perfect.

And I’ve been falling asleep for the past 3 hours because I made the mistake of eating pasta for dinner, which is a recipe for a drowsy Kelsh indeed. Please wake me up, bright tea!

Bessie! So many DW fans only know the new Doctors, etc. It’s so nice to see someone else who knows the classic characters as well. And the tea sounds good, too. I am so jealous of your DW teas.

I love Classic Who! Sure wish more people did. It’s awesome :) I wish I could TARDIS back in time and write for it.

I have a several of the DW Missing Adventure books. They have the old Doctors and companions. I just finished one of them, Goth Opera, with Tegan, Nyssa and the Fifth Doctor. It’s set between Snakedance and Mawdryn Undead. They are enjoyable. You really “hear/see/feel” them talking and acting just like in the classics.

I love the books! A friend of mine ran the division that published the ones from the BBC before the new series began. I swear he must have been like 12 when that was his job because he’s not that much older than me. Either that or I’m old and I have a TON of catching up to do in my stupid career. Have you listened to any of the Big Finish audio dramas?
