Just figured out the reason for it; he kept drinking this bloody tea!
It’s 1:45AM in New York right now and rather than going for my usual cup of coffee, I thought I’d pick a different poison. Turns out, the stuff really is poison! Either that or I’m a really, really, really cheap date.
A bit ironic that Captain Picard loves the stuff and there’s a ship’s wheel on the packaging for this Timothy’s tea.
Oh well, time for bed!
