I stayed up late one night–WAY too late, to be honest–and so I got very silly, as I am wont to do when I am very sleep-deprived. So I came to thinking: what tea would each member of the Fellowship of the Ring of Power be most likely to drink? Thus, we now have this (extremely) silly/ridiculous/outlandish/wild/stupid post…if I post it. And if I do, and you hate it, maybe you are jsut sleep-deprived as well…or perhaps you merely DREAMED that I posted it at all…
Gandalf* – Earl Grey for starters, and then he will switch to white tea, thank you very much. *rimshot* *dead silence*
*The wizard declared himself a tea-drinker (in The Fellowship of the Ring movie, at least.) Remember? “Just tea, thank you.”
Ahem. Moving right along….
Boromir – Instant tea: proclaims itself be good but quickly betrays you. (Too soon?)
Pippin – First he’ll have a cup of English Breakfast, quickly followed by a second. *nudge*
Merry – Whatever Pippin is drinking. Because Pippin is knows where the good stuff is at (and it comes in pints!)
Sam – Herbal. It isn’t a tea, and by all rights shouldn’t even be on this list, Mr. Frodo. But it’s good….
Legolas – Darjeeling. I feel our elf mellon would drink the “champagne of teas.” It just feels right.
Gimli – I can’t see Gimli drinking tea. Gravy? Yes. But tea?
Aragorn – I imagine he drinks coffee.
Frodo – I’m not sure, but I bet he uses up the last of the water when he makes a cuppa.
*insert all your groans here*
Please forgive this post. Forgive, forget. Don’t tell your friends. But do tell me: What tea do YOU drink?
