Once we’d finally acquired Kukicha and created ‘Splinter’s Brew’ – we knew we had to make a tea for each turtle.
This ended up focusing on personality and colour of mask.
For Raphael we needed red, of course, and something that covered his snark and … angst issues.
We crafted a tasty blend involving the Kukicha, Gunpowder Green, Safflower, and Smoked Chili – but it was still missing something.
A friend on Twitter pointed out to me that deep, deep inside, Raphael was really a softie. Which turned into adding just a touch of Vanilla to the blend.
Which was exactly what it needed.
