drank Mango Sticky Rice by ETTE TEA
1439 tasting notes

It’s National Popcorn Day! I feel like I should have a bowl of popcorn for lunch as well as a genmaicha to celebrate!

The winds of change arrived late last night here in the California bay area, just in time for the presidential inauguration. What that means is that all the pollen that has settled was whipped up in 26mph winds making misery for allergy suffers. The house I live in is 130 years old with the original windows, so we feel the breeze inside which means the pollen is getting in too and boy can I feel it! It’s distracting me from my tea as well! I’m having a hard time figuring out if my sense of taste has been effected.

I love this tea. I love that it takes the natural rice flavor in the gen and builds off it to taste like the dessert. The mango is faint in some sips and that surprised me this morning. It’s usually pretty present, but today I’m getting intermittent mango…. which would make an awesome band name! Still a really nice cup and one of my two favorites from ETTE.

Now to make popcorn! The ladyfinger popcorn is my favorite!

That reminds me that I have some spicy Cheeto popcorn in the pantry..

I restocked some microwave popcorn and forgot about it! I’ll have a bag tonight for my nightly ritual of TV-with-the-cat.

Is your cat obsessed with popcorn? Mine go wild for it and will tear into bags of it if I don’t hide them.

Mastress Alita

No, but she is obsessed with cheese! Any time I make a sandwich, after slicing the cheese I have to pull all the scrappies off the knife, roll them into a ball, and give it to her because I’m a terrible fur mother. side eyes

Maybe it’s the butter? I made the mistake once of putting my butter dish on the table before dinner and caught my cat licking the stick just a couple minutes later.

The puglets love cheese too! Although, really, they love everything…

Lexie Aleah

My family’s new puppy will literally try to eat popcorn from your mouth. She’s very motivated.

Omg, the wind! It gusted to something like 90mph last night somewhere here in Sonoma.

Dustin

I love the term puglets!
My popcorn lunch was delicious, but not very filling!
90mph is intense! Anything damaged? The wind here must have been faster than 26 during the night. Woke up to power outages and the sounds of early morning chainsaws, presumably dealing with fallen limbs.

We get crazy bad winds like that frequently where I live. Takes tree arms right off.

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
