2778 Tasting Notes
So my cupboard is absolutely minuscule, which is mind boggling. I’m part proud, and part frantic.
I was trying to get my cupboard into better shape, and am rather proud of myself for doing so, but I think I’ve hit the opposite end, and that it’s time to go tea shopping!
The good news about the smaller cupboard means that I feel the freedom to bring in some new to me companies, and that would be good! Try all the new teas!
Suddenly it’s summer again. The temperature has, almost over night, vaulted into the upper 90’s, and my season of despair has begun.
Its so tricky to drink tea in this weather! I don’t like it, Sam I Am.
I picked up a new tin of this on a whim. It had been years since I last had it, and, you know what? I still like it! It fills a solid, basic part of the cupboard, which is great.
I decided to open my last package of this today, and of course it’s going to rain and not feel very spring like. Timing!
I was once completely enamored of this tea, and while I still like it, I’m not as sad as I thought I would be over the fact that this is the end of it.
But I will try to slow down and enjoy this today.
It’s one of those weeks that is going to be busy. I have an audition tonight, a board meeting tomorrow, I teach a class Thursday night, and, on top of it all I’m congested and my stomach is a touch upset.
So, tea is absolutely essential in these situations. Gimmie this mug!
One of these days I’m going to learn how to relax. Not today, mind you, but one of these days.
Whew! March was a whirlwind, and I don’t know that I posted at all. Whoops.
Life is still going to be busy, but I have no intention of letting my tea logging getting away from me again.
I’ve cracked into my final tin of Carol (a moment of silence for Lupicia….)
I’m going to miss this blend. It’s a candy like, silly sort of blend, but I’ve always really enjoyed it.
So I am sick, in a play so wildy busy, in my busiest period of the working year, it’s pouring rain, and over the weekend the nice young man I had been seeing and I split. (A nice split, no one angry. Our lives are just in very different places. I wish him all the best, and am in no way angry, I’m just sad and I miss him.)
So nice tea with a spoonful of honey today. I am going to be a nice to myself as possible.
This was never my favorite blend- I found it veered too easily into bitter, which is unfortunate.
I actually tried it with a splash of milk, something I almost never do, and found it very agreeable. But, as I almost never have tea with milk, this blend is probably not the breakfast blend for me.
Still, very nice to try!
