mmm this was a tasty cup! Thank you Cavo! I quite enjoyed this earlier today. This was a cherry vanilla tea to me, which i guess is good since that’s what it’s trying to be, along with some cinnamon. I didn’t get much in the way of the cinnamon, but the cherry and vanilla left a juicy impression in my mouth that made for an enjoyable cup of tea today!

I couldn’t place it at first, but I definitely smell and taste the rose in my first impression. That would be Sansa then.

After, I taste black tea with cherries and something rich, and a tiny little bit of hibiscus. The Hound.

It pulls together quite nicely actually. It makes me think of spices that aren’t listed in the ingredients: it’s earthier, but also tart and sweet. I think it’s the Ceylon Sonata. I like it! Each sip is complicated, but it’s actually not muddy – it flows between the different notes quite nicely, possibly because the rose is so distinct that I can focus there and go on to the rest.

Ok, non-tea related blabs:
I actually had a Game of Thrones sitting on my book shelf for at least 6 years before the HBO show even aired, and I never cracked it open. I just read the back and kept thinking, huh, politics, and skipped it. WHAT AN IDIOT.

I really enjoy the books, and I like being able to watch the show (and read the comics too! Ha. I have those as well). It’s interesting to see how each medium presents the story slightly different, and how the characters are portrayed. I’ve been trying to read the books so that I’m caught up to the TV show at least, but I’m also trying to do it slow because I don’t want to hit book 5 and not be able to move onto the next.

Sometimes I felt bad that all the fanfic I consume (and book length at that!) means that I can go months at a time without cracking open a ‘real’ book, but whatever. I really need to get back into the 3rd book of ASOIAF though!!! Esp since the next season will air soon and I don’t want to be caught off guard by any more Red Wedding crap. (Cuz yes, I take it as certainty that there will be more terrible deaths by the end of it… Just plz not Arya, Bran, Jon or Tyrion….. Damn. That’s too big a list. I can’t assume they’ll all live. :()

And the rest of this is off to Sil! I hope she likes it.

I just hope GRRM actually writes the rest before the TV show catches up. I wouldn’t want to have that sort of pressure, that’s for sure.

OMGsrsly

My whole family is obsessed with the show/books. I just can’t get into them. :/ Also, GRRM will kill anyone. It’s like he rolls a dice and then just works it into the plot. “If the character gets an odd number, they die!”

I know just enough about Game of Thrones to be really upset by the prospect of any of the characters I like dying, which is why I’ve stopped keeping up with it, so I can pretend that they live happily ever after and they’re all best friends and nothing bad ever happens to them. My little world is a much better place.

Watching the Red Wedding, having already read the books, with people who had no idea what was coming was one of the greatest experiences. It was absolutely hilarious especially given most of them didn’t even think it was necessary to show that particular wedding because it was not between main characters :P.
