From Adagio Teas

Narvin is absolutely a darling. Principled and loyal, he always does what he does with the belief that he is doing what is right. Narvin just deserves all the love in the world, and a big hug, and a nice cup of tea. Nothing too ostentatious, of course: rather, a decidedly dry blend of ceylon and green, a comforting undertone of bergamot, and a surprising hint of artichoke sweetness. Be sure to handle him with care, however, or he may become bitter. The perfect blend for one who only wants what’s best for Gallifrey.

Guess who just landed another job interview? Yippee! And it’s a place I’d be chuffed to be working for, it’s in the arts, and it’s smack dab in the middle of all the interesting things. In Oxford. Two interviews less than one week apart, in Oxford, after about 10 months of virtually nothing in Manchester. I think the universe is conspiring to send me south, guys. That’s the impression I’m getting, really. There’s a big part of me that’s super hesitant to leave Oop North, and a big part of me that’s unsure about moving someplace quite small in comparison to Manchester, but a bigger part of me that says THEY WANT YOU, GO MAKE IT HAPPEN. None of this has anything to do with the tea that I am drinking, but the tea that I am drinking is also helping to quietly alleviate my ridiculous TMJ headache that’s been brought on by, oh, who knows.

Oh Narvin, I absolutely adore you. He may at times be misunderstood, but he really is genuinely lovely. The scent upon opening the bag is subtle, but not without complexity: a gentle hint of bergamot is backed by notes of subtle fruit, like apricot or peach, but it’s definitely dry, not sweet. The brew is simple, not overly flavoured, with a brisk, dry mouthfeel: the earl grey pairs beautifully with the bright notes of the ceylon, and just a trace of that subtle sort of stone fruit that still has a bit of lovely crunch to it. I take it with a bit of sugar, of course, because Narvin really is an absolute sweetie. It’s a blend that just makes me happy, just like Narvin.

I feel so inadequate in regards to DW knowledge compared to you! I’ve never heard of some of these characters! Much less consider teas for them. The tea sounds good! I’ll have to find out more than the Wiki info. I’m glad to hear that things are looking up for you in regards to the jobs.

Aww, thanks guys! I’m so nervous! :3

And Carol Who, Narvin is one of the core characters of the Gallifrey spin-off series from Big Finish, which is chock full of Time Lords and political intrigue and is my favourite thing about the DW universe. It was created by my friend Gary, who moved to Australia last fall and I miss him dearly. Narvin is one of those characters who seems a bit dark and adversarial at first, but you come to realise that he’s got the same good intentions as Romana. And he’s played by a sweet Welsh chap called Sean Carlsen who I’m terribly fond of as a human being. Whoops, I’m gushing. I need them to bring it back for a seventh series so I can write an episode where everyone gets to hug.

I’ve never read/listened to any of the Galifreyian spinoffs. I guess that will be my next mission.
