Geek Steep S1E15 – V for Vendetta
This is an example of one of those pairings that just doesn’t work.
Going in to this week’s Geek I knew very, very little about the actual content of the graphic novel we were reading aside from the fact it was a bit darker/heavier in nature and would in some way revolve around anarchy. I really had no clue how to approach the pairing, and so what ended up happening was that I made a mug of tea and then realized I had time to start reading the graphic novel… so that became my pairing.
I knew within the first five pages that this was the wrong tea. I mean, I like this tea but it’s very bright and sunny with vibrant, juicy and sharp notes of tangerine and a crisp mint undertone with actually minimal amounts of spice. It was too full of life and cheeriness to possibly work with this graphic novel.
Sometimes your pairing just doesn’t work though – and thankfully I was able to recover from it and find something more suitable for the rest of my read through!

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
