What do you guys think of the people who ask for shout outs at the panels/podcasts and such?
Included: Caleb, Gavin, Geoff, JJ, Jack, Lindsay, Michael, Ray, Ryan. Art by the amazing naengdong!
The outreach boy, friendly and positive and welcoming all fans with easy enthusiasm. Caleb’s tea is bright and refreshing, fruity and floral.
(Blendmaker’s Advice: This is a white tea. Do NOT brew it too hot, it will come out bitter. Water that is hot but well under a boil is best.)
The calamity, a strange delight, fast and often incoherent. Gavin’s tea is a minty, chocolate green with just a bit English flair.
(Blendmaker’s advice: Temperature is important with the kukicha! Adagio says 190 degrees for two minutes; I would steep it longer, personally. Some sugar, no milk!)
The president of Team Gents and bossman, strong, bold, and a bit wild. Geoff’s tea is a smooth dark tea, woody and nutty.
(Blendmaker’s Advice: This is a good starter tea if you’ve only been using basic bagged black teas. Brew just under a boil for 3 to 5 minutes depending on how strong you want it.)
The rock of the office who keeps things on course and keep things even and moving. Jack’s tea is a robust, earthy tea with a homey sweetness.
(Blendmaker’s Advice: Smells amazing! Also a good starter tea, vanilla with a very slight spice kick. Same boil instructions as Geoff’s.)
The man behind the curtain who edits with flair. JJ’s tea is caffeinated, grassy, and mineral with a punch of sour apple.
(Blendmaker’s Advice: This tea is almost maroon! Make sure you brew at the proper temperature or the mate/green mix will be bitter and the apple will be too strong. 150 degrees for 5 minutes! A very good morning pick-me-up tea with its caffeine.)
The huntress, brash and loud who doesn’t put up with anyone’s crap. Lindsay’s tea is cinnamon and chocolate and apples, bold and sweet.
(Blendmaker’s advice: Dessert tea with a bit of spice! This one will be a more forgiving brew. Boiling water should be fine, but if it comes out too bitter, try just-under boil.)
The leader of Team Lads, at turns boisterous and self-effacing and principled. Michael’s tea is a smoky, spicy blend with a kick of unexpected sweetness.
(Blendmaker’s advice: Same brew advice as Lindsay’s. Should be fairly forgiving! Note the tea itself smells VERY strong but the flavor will be fine. Tastes like an apple cooked over a fire without the burnt taste.)
The ace, both boastful and modest, working tirelessly to boost that gamerscore. Ray’s tea is roses, because he lives the meme.
(Blendmaker’s advice: Adagio says to brew this at 212 degrees. They are clearly not paying attention; that will make the white cucumber bitter. Like Caleb’s tea, do not brew this too hot.)
The wild card, at any point either a dry-witted redstone technician or a terrifying schemer. Ryan’s tea is a strong wake-up call with a fruity twist.
(Blendmaker’s advice: Team Gents are all good teas to start with if you are new! Brew Ryan’s like Geoff’s— just under a boil.)
Extra information under the cut!
Updated! /excited seal clap
Fuck it, I’m gonna reblog this for the first time in probably a year. Sorry if you’ve seen it already, it’s superdated (made back when JJ was editing for AH, whOOOA WEEEIRD) but hey look there’s a sampler now!)
