“What’s a daiquiri?”
A daiquiri is a concoction involving rum, sugar, and citrus.
So this tea means I’m supposed to be on the lookout for:
When I drink this, I mostly just get rose on a black base. I have no idea what happened to the other ingredients. Which is okay, actually, because mango isn’t my favorite, and I have no concept of how “rum” would translate into a tea. In an effort to get the other flavors to emerge, I tried this cold afterward. It tasted like soap. (I think I associate rose with soap.)
In summary: if you like roses and only roses mixed with black tea, drink this hot.
For bonus points, put on Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose” in the background.
Meditate on the social milieu that allowed 1995’s Batman Forever to exist.
Think back to the time that Val Kilmer was totally smooch-worthy. Also meditate on the strapping young Chris O’Donnell and the luxuriously beautiful Nicole Kidman.
Recall Jim Carey’s freewheeling antics, and Tommy Lee Jones having the time of his life. Consider, if you will, the fact that both of these characters played their villains as the Joker. Try not to be saddened by the dismantling of canon.
Do your best not to giggle at the Batsuit having nipples.
You will fail. The Batsuit’s nipples are hilarious, and codpieces were in play.
But we got an amazing soundtrack out of the film. A good soundtrack is hard to concoct. You can thank the RZA for that. WU. TANG.
I don’t know where to take this post after Wu Tang. So I’m going to drop you off here. I hope you have enjoyed taking this flavorful, cultural voyage with me. I wish you the very safest of travels, tea friends.

"Hey, everybody! I'm Leah, a graphic designer from Pennsylvania, United States. I live with my husband and rescue mutt in a house with colorful walls. I love fonts, colors, animals, flowers, novels, illustration, geeking out, and -- obviously! -- tea. I've only been heavily into tea for about a year, but I've found I tend to prefer loose blended black dessert teas. I normally drink them hot western style without anything added; if I add in some vanilla almond milk or honey, I promise I'll mention it! When I'm not blogging here, I'm blogging at leahlucci.com/starling or posting to Instagram (super_starling), so come say hi!"
