I just read through the rest of the posts, and I'm SO ACTUALLY EXCITED to see people talking about teas!

Could I pitch in an idea?

I think Sana could also be Pu-erh, also because of it's earthy nature. It's a drink that's dark, complex, and rich, and I think it would suit someone with such deep spiritual ties to the forest :>

And Amber as Honey-Pear sounds just perfect!

Heh yeah that could also work though I admit I'm not as familiar with it.

And yes I thought about it afterwards and I think it suits better than jasmine.

heh I my not be the 'Tea' master but I am certainly enthusiastic about 'tea' xP
specifically bubble tea but tea without tapioca is also pretty nice lol

I am too! Though as far as bubble tea goes, I was only introduced to good bubble tea in this past year.... it's surprisingly hard to find around these parts. :/
But when I was back at my community college I would blow all of my excess money on tea - WE CAN BE ENTHUSIASTIC TOGETHER AND TALK ABOUT TEA : D

Also, I really like your Hyena in the signature! You have a style that makes to look dreamy, and I totally dig it.

Pardon me if this is a silly question....but what in the world is bubble tea?

Bubble Tea is tea with tapioca balls in them! Usually the tea is milk based, and they are 100% completely delicious. ; )

All good its kinda like an ice tea but you can customize it and it is way better

Wikipedia:

"Bubble tea, also known as pearl milk tea or boba milk tea, is a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in tea shops in Taichung, Taiwan, during the 1980s.[1] The term "bubble" is an Anglicized imitative form derived from the Chinese bōbà (波霸) meaning "bubble," slang for the large, chewy tapioca balls commonly added to the drink. These are (粉圓, fěnyuán), also called "pearls" (珍珠, zhēnzhū). Most bubble tea recipes contain a tea base mixed with fruit or milk. Ice-blended versions are usually mixed with fruit or syrup, resulting in a slushy consistency.[2]

There are many variants of the drinks, and many kinds of types are used and ingredients added. The most popular bubble drinks are bubble milk tea with tapioca and bubble milk green tea with tapioca"

Haha come friend let me enlighten you!

Bubble Tea is a drink made using a regular tea as a base such as green or black tea and then adding fruit or flavours to it (I know at least Chatime uses real fruit etc.) And then adding toppings like tapioca pearls, lychee jeIly, aloe vera or sago (there are many). It's usually served cold with ice but some flavours can be done hot earl grey with pearls is amazing!) It's also generally sold in a cup with a large straw so the toppings don't get stuck.

It's delicious when done well and I'm totally addicted- but abstaining for 100 days from as I used 100 days worth of Bubble Tea money to back Armello for more.

Bubble tea is fleeting, Armello is forever!!

Oh my goodness...all this time I wondered what Bubble tea was in Singapore. It's a popular beverage amongst the youths! OK, first thing I'm going to do when I return to Singapore is to try Bubble Tea...hmm...what sort of Bubble tea would you associate the 4 main heroes of Armello with? Feel free to go crazy with the flavours.

No problem! I was drawn to it as soon as I saw it, and hyena are such awesome animals!

And YES! Tea Masters crusading through the forum, enlightening the world on the glory of tea! XD
I mean, I'm sure our heroes can enjoy a good cup, why not everyone else? ; )

HM, I could see Sana as matcha, and Amber as.... coconut, maybe?

Not so sure about Thane and Mercurio, though!

Oh when you asked before I thought that was what you meant xD

Oolong or Pu-erh as Tea mentioned
with pearls and low sugar

Earl Grey with Pearls and extra ice for Thane

Honey Pear with Lychee jelly for Amber

and what did I say for Mercurio again?

I'm afraid I tend to be more into the more traditional tea flavours even though bubble tea has so many different ones.

I'm sorry my phone is making it very hard to type and post at the moment.

Alright. Well, we're halfway through the 4 backers. Now, the Commander is a friendly guy, eager and loyal to the community. He pictures himself as a beagle, commanding an army and such.

Friendly and loyal- probably a flavoured milk tea like Caramel? Hot served caramel though with pearls!

Haha Hyenas are the best!!

Heh maybe! That would be pretty cool.

And you can get Crysanthemum bubble tea variations too xP!!

You can indeed get all those flavours. I'm pretty sure they have apricot- if they don't at Chatime they do at Bubble cup or somewhere else lol.  I'd recommend coconut jelly woth that or if you're not such a sweet tooth Aloe vera chunks are super gooey and weird but not bad xP pretty healthy too I do believe.
