Unfortunately this is the first note I’ve written on this tea, and I’m not really in the mood to actually review the tea, I am more posting this note as a tribute to the late Alan Rickman, my favorite actor, who sadly passed away today.
I’ll keep it short, but I have been a huge Harry Potter fan since about grade three. Read all the books multiple times, went to quite a few of the movies in theatres (I don’t think all of them) and have re-watched the movies countless times. And my favorite character in the movies is definitely Professor Snape. Probably mostly due to the fact that Alan Rickman did a STELLAR job portraying Snape, and I can’t even think of anyone else as Snape ever. And to this day, everytime I see the last movie at a certain part involving Alan Rickman (I won’t spoil, in case people actually haven’t seen all the movies) I break down crying my eyes out. Even after watching the movie so many times, I actually watched it over the Christmas break and broke down with my aunt and uncle there any everything lol.
And yes, Alan Rickman has done quite a few other movies, notably Die Hard and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And he was also a great villain in those movies as well. He has an excellent voice too, unique and recognizable.
But he will always be Professor Snape to me. Always.
So here’s to you, Alan. Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the film industry and I am happy to have lived in a time where you were an actor. I will try to not be too sad today, but this is hitting me harder than I thought it would. I don’t have many favorite actors, and he was my favorite. Rest in peace.
Oh, and this tea is super gingery and spicy, I’ve drank multiple cups in the past but I will write a more detailed note later.
