Geek Steep S1E14 – Princess Jellyfish
Cold Brew Sipdown (1260)!
Firstly, a big thank you to Sew Geek who is an instagram follower of our podcast account who very kindly sent us some fandom tea samples to review! When we decided on doing Princess Jellyfish for one of the podcast episodes, I knew immediately that Pistachio Icecream was going to be my pairing for the rewatch, and also that whatever I drank during recording would HAVE to be something super fandom-y and fun!
Well, as it turns out, during the time of recording the episode it was the week of the series finale for Supernatural – so this was just great timing! If you’re not seeing the connection for why I would want to do something fandom related (aside from us being a podcast that celebrates fandoms), you should totally listen to this week’s episode! Spoiler alert though; it’s because the thing that basically all the main characters in this anime have in common is that they are all MASSIVE fans of different niche interests/hobbies/fandoms and a huge reoccuring theme is this celebration of our unique passions and how our interests make us beautiful.
Hence fandom tea!
As a tangent – I just, knowing the plot of the Supernatural series finale, realized that there’s some dramatic irony in the name of this tea in. Of course, the pie tie in was already an inside joke/gag – but… next level, now.
Aside from all of that, I just really nice to point out how incredibly delicious this tea was! I had it cold brewed, and it was so rich and sweet. It’s a rooibos blend with caramel and apple and it may, legitimately, be one of the best caramel apple teas I’ve ever had. More than that, it might be one of the best caramel teas I’ve had in general. The flavours were just so on point that several times during the recording of this podcast episode I wanted to stop the conversation and comment about how fucking incredible this tea was. Juicy, crisp red apple, sticky and gooey medium bodied caramel, just a bit of red fruit and nuttiness from the rooibos.
I. Was. In. Heaven.
Much like Dean.
Okay – that’s my last pun, I will see myself out now.
