WandaVision Binge Watch – Ep 4
On a pairing front I have to say that the name of this tea really says it all. It was one of those obvious “slaps you in the face” kind of teas that you go “OH! Obviously this is what should go with this episode” and so it’s what I did. The cold open of the episode immediately validated that feeling for me.
On a taste level, it was probably good that I switched to something more delicate and calming after several pretty richly flavourful teas. I loved the silky smooth notes of clotted cream, cucumber pulp, and timothy hay. There was also this quality that I liked that (and this is gonna sound weird) I can only best describe as the smell of what you make your own paper. I don’t know if anyone else has ever done that before, but you basically make your own weird goopy paper pulp and spread it very thin then use pressure to make it stay together as a sheet. There’s a distinct aroma to that process, and this taste like it – but in a good and nostalgic way.
This is also the episode where alllllllll the caffeine I had been consuming really started to catch up with me and by the end of the episode I felt like I was buzzing/vibrating from a combo of adrenaline/excitement from the plot developments mixed with so much caffeine…
