The BF and I saw Darkest Hour yesterday. I didn’t know much about the movie when we went other than it was about Winston Churchill and Gary Oldman was in it. I think Gary Oldman is pretty amazing. He’s the only actor out there that looks completely different in every role he’s in. Anyway, it was pretty intense — it took place in a mere few weeks between the time in 1940 that Churchill succeed Chamberlain as Prime Minister and the rescue at Dunkerque. Really excellent acting job by Oldman. Now I want to read Churchill’s books. My parents had a hard backed set of them that became mine but I haven’t read them yet.
Anyway, I enjoyed this tea while it lasted. I think you’re “supposed” to prefer first flush darjeelings to second flush, because they’re rarer and pricier, but I’m not sure I do. Or maybe I just need to be in the mood for them.
