I absolutely have a Critical Role obsession problem right now, so you best bet that I went and ordered myself a bunch of Critical Role inspired teas. This one takes inspiration from the ever colorful and flamboyant tiefling Mollymauk Tealeaf.
I think it’s just wayyyyy too perfect for a Molly inspired tea to used something colourful like Butterfly Pea Flower. As such, this tea steeps up a brilliant blue colour. However, the taste is very soft – just a gentle berry and apple note alongside the more off putting taste of the butterfly pea flower itself. It’s nice visually, but just doesn’t have the right punch of flavour for this character.
I think my version of a Mollymauk tea would have some similarities – like I would keep the vibrant colour. However, I would probably do a really punchy and flavourful Blueberry Lemonade taste profile – combined with the pea flower the acid of the lemon would result in a purple liquor colour, which is just perfect for this purple tiefling. I’d probably add just a bit of lavender as well, as a nod to the lavender perfume that Molly wore.
Yup – that sounds right.
