Geek Steep S1E16 – Dune (1984)
So this was my first time watching Dune and, really, exploring anything about it just in general. The movie is based on a very beloved and renowned novel series, however even the most impassioned Dune “the novel series” fans can agree that the movie is a train wreck. I was totally not expecting this level of dumspter fire chaos – but once I was able to let go of trying to view it as a serious work of film then I had a crazy good time watching this movie! After all, I have a special love for bad movies.
Because I didn’t know anything about the movie I had no clue what tea to choose and so Marika very kindly told me that spice was a BIG DEAL in the movie so I should pick something spiced. I decided, seconds after she said this, that I didn’t want to do that. I don’t drink much spiced tea – and I’ve already had several on the podcast.
I sat on the idea for a while though, and eventually I decided to message the one friend whom I knew for sure had seen the movie and ask him for a one sentence summary. In my head, if he didn’t mention spices then surely they couldn’t mean that much. His sentence was: “Way too many people give far too many fucks about space spice”.
So that settled it, I would have to pick a spiced tea. I decided to try something I’d not had before, and I knew this was in my stash. More than that, saffron is the most expensive spice (currently) on earth so I figured that if spices were a big deal I would pick a tea that had some fancy ass spices in it…
I’ll do another tasting note about the flavour of this at a future point, but suffice to say that it tasted okay. I mean, it’s a nice enough tea – just not my thing. Did it pair well? I mean, it didn’t pair badly but I probably would have had a more fun time if I’d picked a tea I wanted to drink.
