Sometimes polls are involved in the creation of tea. They can cover anything from “Help me pick a journal page to work up” to “What should I add to the toolbox?” to “I want to make something with this foundation, help me pick which idea to pursue” to “Let’s build a tea from the foundation up” – the scope is pretty varied.
This tea was created via the third of those options. White Tea is something many people have requested I make more blends with. However, as it is a tea I am still making proper friends with it isn’t something that leaps to mind or to hand when thinking about tea.
White Teas are less whim more fun school project that I have to be reminded to do.
After one of the times I was reminded, I spun out a poll with a list of the various ideas, and white tea with cinnamon and orange came out as the front runner.
So, I made the thing.
I then asked for assistance with naming the thing.
My favourite of the suggested options required a bit of a memory refresh, as it had been ages since I’d read the series in question.
That series is CS Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia.1
I am deeply enthused by the idea of tigers who helped to overthrow a tyrant who wanted to kill off those who were different. In this particular case, it was the magical creatures of Narnia – but there’s a fairly direct real-life analogy that crosses over, there.
The tea is tasty and has a good chance of helping with a sore throat, and the imagery and intent behind the name is something I’ve filed in my head for certain kinds of brain weasel issues.
