From Custom-Adagio Teas, Cara McGee

A fun, bright, sweet blend. Painfully loyal and filled with love and comfort. Careful though, can come on a bit strong and may not be to everyone’s taste.

Inspired by BBC’s Doctor Who, which I am in no way affiliated with. This is created purely for my own enjoyment.

Teas: Ceylon Sonata, Raspberry Patch, Earl Grey Lavender

Figure i should keep drinking up these teas since i have a few ppl who will be getting little samples of these from me. I still find there’s too much blergamot in this one to really be a great tea, but the raspberry and vanilla flavoring do help to tone it down enough that i don’t want t outright dump the cup out (i’m looking at you river song..) This was ok in offsetting and creating a contrast for the puerh i’ve been drinking but i’m sure most of this tin will be off in swaps for others to enjoy more :)

MissB

Blergamot! Love it. :)

It’s been a while since I had this. After having a pretty hectic couple of days, this is exactly what I needed.

So I figured, what the heck, let’s try Rose’s tea. It was the second one I pulled out of the box….Well, technically Jack was the second one, but I’ve tried that one and didn’t like it at all (though I might retry the stuff in the tin since it doesn’t smell as strongly as the batch I got in a bag). So I skipped him and went to the next.
This one smelled pretty fruity dry, which was nice.
Brewed this still was fruity, but a tart/sour sort of fruity from the raspberries. Thankfully I don’t get any of the earl grey from this since bergamot is definitely not one of my favorite flavors. Or maybe it’s here, but its subtle (which I’m not used to with earl grey) so I can’t really pick it out. But honestly I don’t really think of this as much more than a raspberry tea to be honest. Everything else is just kinda overshadowed.
A bit of truvia tones the sour/tartness down, but not so much that I can tell anything else from the tea. Lol!

Good ol’ Rose. I do like her, you know. And this is nice and cozy. Light on the bergamot and lavender, and nicely raspberry. I like this raspberry in blends, it brings a sweet freshness you don’t get from a raspberry-flavoured black tea, that blends well with the subtle floral background notes here. I wish there was a little less of the ceylon texture in the background, but it’s a very comforting flavour.

Thanks again to the wonderful Sil for sending this my way!

It’s 9:30 and I’m my first sipdown for the day! I’m hoping to get a lot in since I’m in the shop by myself today and have easy access to the kettle. I actually moved out of my office and set my laptop up in the shop and just made myself at home. Who’s gonna stop me? NOT YOU.

I came into work today and my boss was still here – two nights in a row! So, since Wednesday I think he’s slept for maybe 3 hours. Yikes. The movie biz is only PARTIALLY for me, you guys. Assuming he can drive home safely, I think he’s going to sleep for 5 hours and then head out to set. And this is why I’m alone today – all the prosthetics are built and the only thing left is a giant mess which I will clean throughout the day between cups of tea.

And onto THIS tea: The lavender and the EG are fairly muted, leaving some apple raspberry notes on the surface. It comes across as simple and sweet, but there’s a little more to it than you might expect. I nearly dismissed it at first, but by the end of the cup I found I was enjoying it more!

MUCH LIKE ROSE! No, not really. I actually really loved Rose Tyler when I first met her, but then as I moved on from her to other companions I looked back at her and realized a few things: I don’t like how she treated Mickey. Dump him, or don’t dump him, but make up your mind. Also, do I really want to ship her and the Doctor? Yes they were adorable but… let’s creep it up a little. He’s 900 years old. She’s… 19? Oh well they’re in love and they didn’t actually do anything about it, but… no…. Just… no. I guess the human version of the Doctor going off with Rose is less creepy because he’s human, but…

Whatever. I’m thinking too much about this! Onto MOAR tea!

Sil

if i makes you feel better… you have samples of the ones i liked least…since i’m trying to drink those first… so hopefully they’ll just get better in your opinion too!

Sami Kelsh

I can’t judge on the ship front (seeing how I ship Six and Peri something fierce, and Three and everyone Three interacts with, and Two and Jamie, Five and Turlough, and One and his Aztec girlfriend Cameca, Adric and math…) but I actually really liked Rose until she kept returning in the middle of Donna’s season and I wanted Donna to get to do her own thing. But that’s not a reflection on the character, but the writing insisting on making her THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTER IN THE WORLD which really annoys the crap out of me. And she totally wasn’t good with the whole SERIOUSLY JUST BREAK UP WITH MICKEY SO HE CAN MOVE ON thing, but she was 19, and 19 year olds suck at relationships.

Whoops, don’t ever get me started talking about the Doctor Who. I won’t rest until I’m producing it.

Anna

I’m so glad I’m not watching that show.

Sami Kelsh

whispers Dude, watch the heck out of it! It’s the best thing!

Sil

anna… i might love you a little less now..

Cavocorax

It really is a great show, but the First Series was a little unpolished – they were trying to figure out what to do with the show after not airing it for so long. I can forgive them, but if you’re not sure you would, just start at a later series!

And Sami you bring up some great points. She’s 19 – she’s going to make mistakes that might not make sense to thoseof us who’ve learned better. :P

I also agree with you about it not being fair to steal the light from Donna. I thought I’d hate Donna and I was so wrong. She was so great and I love how she was decidedly NOT a love interest. Martha was so good, but she would have been stronger had she no been interested in Ten.

Sami Kelsh

Yeah, I wish they’d dropped the whole unrequited-crush thing with Martha after maybe 2 episodes and just moved on. I thought she was a really smart, capable character, who just wasn’t always well-served by how they wanted to write that season’s arc.

Anna

Then I shall henceforth refer to you as sill, which means herring.

No, but it’s daunting tackling a show that is so widely criticized for failing its female protagonists.

Thing is, Moffat is not an intrinsic sexist – I’m a HUGE, OBSESSIVE fan of his first show, Press Gang, which is a phenomenal 80s series with one of the most thoroughly enjoyable (and badass) female leads ever (my current laptop is named for her – if I tell you my desktop is named Ripley, I’m sure you understand the level of her badassery). His problem, though, is that he’s always completely devoted to and invested in his main character – if he only wrote female leads, that would be amazing, but, alas, no.

Sami Kelsh

That’s an ineresting point, Anna – one I really hadn’t considered in that way, but I see it. And he’s not as misogynistic as a lot of angry fans paint him either, though I have my qualms about his writing as well. I haven’t met him, but we have mutual friends, so I give him the benefit of the doubt as a generally good person. No writer’s perfect.

As far as female characters go, I still think Barbara, Nyssa, Leela, and Ace have been a few of the strongest, best served female characters in the show. Whoops, I keep hijacking this thread! I’m going to go for a walk :p

Sil

i hear ya Anna
