I have a complicated text, but I built three sentences with the main idea. I'd like to use one of the linking words below for the last sentence, depending on the meaning.
We chose a reliable
teamaker, but it may still not be working. Should we consider
teaas very important, we can make it ourselves (without the automatic machine). LINKER, if that is not even possible, there are other options, such as buying in the nearest coffeehouse
What option would be best for the linker?
The overall goal is to ensure that
tea is available. The italics show the three main ideas in the text. The "not being possible" is contrasting to "being possible". However, the idea of having other "tea-making" options is an added layer of trust (of tea availability). The real question is not about the linker itself, but the meaning of it. Am I adding information, or showing a contrasting idea?
I know we can omit the linker and just use "If that is not possible...", but I'm curious about this. More than the specific word to use, I'm interested in the correct meaning.
EDIT: I tried to illustrate my situation with a practical example, merely for clarification.
The old version of the sentences was:
We prepared ourselves so that "some stuff" is probably available, but it may not be the case. If "some stuff" is very important, we can create it ourselves. LINKER, if that is not even possible, there are other "stuff-making" options, such as: ...
