So I’ve been wanting to blend teas for a while now, definitely fandom-related because I love fandom things and I want to contribute something to the amazing groups of people I’m part of. Cara pretty much has character teas in the bag, and I didn’t want to copy anyone, so I decided to make teas based on my favorite fanfics! So far I’ve blended about six, have ideas for at least four more, but I’m getting permission from authors and artists to do this, because it’s respectful. Anyway! Here are the three I’ve finished!
Suffer Quietly - based on Texts from John and Sherlock by Seth and Chelsea. Tastes like being punched, then hugged, then punched again, but in a good way. MISERY. AND. BETRAYAL. [irish breakfast, oriental spice, currant, aniseed accent]
Off the Record - based on Off the Record by goddamnhella. Green as Loki’s eyes in the light of Tony’s arc reactor, this tea is no trick. Drink burning hot or cold as a frost giant. Label art by istehlurvz. [spiced green, white blueberry, citron green, apple pieces accent]
Sometimes Rocks Have Urges - based on The Shoebox Project (now in PDF; originally on livejournal) by ladyjaida (Jaida Jones) and Rave. A strong taste of chocolate, of course, a helping of gillyweed and fire whiskey, and a little tropical paradise without all that sand in unfortunate places, plus a bit frolicking in fields to become bronzed and godlike. Label art from SBP. [chocolate, spiced green, pina colada, marigold flowers accent]
More to come as I get permission, find label art, get more permission, and read more fic!
