Out of all the Firefly teas Zoe’s blend is the one I am/was most terrified of. I took a sniff of the dry leaf when I first got it and immediately scrunched my nose right before having a sneezing fit. It smells like solid ginger – and that makes me really uncomfortable because fuck ginger, that’s why.
But I’m gonna have to get this over with eventually so we’re finishing this one off sooner rather than later. As predicted, I don’t much like it; it tastes pretty solidly like ginger to me and I’m finding it rather bitter to. However, the caramel and the cloves are small redeeming factors in this blend so I wont be as harsh and critical as I would like to be. It is drinkable; but barely.
Also, I can’t deny that this is a really good match for the character so there’s that. Like, if any of the characters were going to be “spice heavy” it’d be Zoe. Personally, I didn’t like her at first but she grew on me. She is a fiery, strong willed and independent woman and who can’t respect that? Plus the dynamic between her and Wash is so perfect, and cute.
Goodbye Zoe; I’d definitely not seek you out again but I can see why others would love you!
