Believe Impossible Things started with giving myself a work-present.
Every so often when doing supply restocks, I will get myself something new to test and potentially play with. Sometimes this is a new type of tea, sometimes it is a fruit I am curious about, sometimes it is an herb that I have come across in my research that looks interesting or useful.
In this particular instance it was genmaicha tea.
I was slightly skeptical about rice in tea. I shouldn’t have been, for a broad range of reasons, not the least of which was some of the other much stranger things I had put in tea with excellent results – and that skepticism may have been born more of some deeper brain awareness that if I liked rice in one tea I might end up feeling the need to pair it with others – and what filtered to the front of my mind was a vague leeriness.1
It came. I tested it. I greatly enjoyed it – but initially all I could think about was how awesome it would be if I could add spices to it to make a green tea rice pudding-ish tea.
I queried another human or two to make sure it was a good idea rather than a mad idea, and then settled to blending.
A sequence of testing and experimentation later, and Believe Impossible Things was added to the tea roster.
The nod to Alice was quite intentional, as the good memories this flavour set conjures for me are from the same timeframe that I read about her adventures.
