Geek Steep S1E13 – Game of Thrones
I don’t like Game of Thrones – I think the portrayal of women and gratuitous depictions of sexual abuse are inexcusable and, for a very long time, if I knew people who did enjoy the show I definitely lost respect for those people…
So, watching an episode of Game of Thrones for the first time in years was a lot for me. I actually had a few ideas of teas that could pair well/work thematically with the show but I realllyyyy wanted to choose something that would make the episode watch a lot better because of just how mindblowingly delicious the tea is, and that fit this port scented black tea perfectly!
It fits in because of the super boozy red fruit/port notes that have permeated the black tea which mirror the often excessive amounts of drinking – in particular during the wedding scene from the episode we watched. So it did seem like a good pairing for the fandom just in general – but it’s also just an incredibly nice tea, and so the quality and deliciousness of it made the experience better just for those aspects alone.
