BTB: Ranger's Blend

Today's episode of Behind the Blend features my personal favorite of our RPG character class collection: Ranger's Blend!

The inspiration for each character class blend is an archetype, rather than any specific character. Rangers are sly, observant, and physically dexterous. They have a close relationship with the forest, a kinship with the natural world.

Green was an obvious choice for our base, but which green to pick? With so rich and mysterious an archetypal profile, I needed to put together a base that was a blend of bright and dark, toasty and lush. Houjicha (toasted twigs and stems) has the tree bark roasted notes and light body of upper-canopy branches. Dragonwell green serves to bring both sunshine-butter and earthy toastiness to the blend, and Gunpowder green complements the butter with a clean mineral finish.

This tea didn't need anything other than tea. The Ranger is pure and complex, simple and layered, mysterious and woodsy.

Sure, this was a less complicated and in-depth blend than some we've featured on past BTB posts. Sometimes tasting thoughts is less murky an experience to explain than usual. Happy sipping!
