103 Tasting Notes
I didn’t like the first sip of this tea, but it’s def growing on me the more I slowly drink this cup. I barely taste the ginger, and the grapefruit, which I wished was kind of punching me in the face instead.
I tried a new experiment today and went grocery shopping at lunch and got a sushi roll. It’s sunny outside, though really windy, so it’s a nice day to sit in a car and eat a sushi roll. My day is boring – I watched scary HBO docs last night before bed and I think I had nightmares AND daymares. Those things are so addictive though. Happy MOONDAY! at least, holy crap.
Oh, Perfect Carlos… you are part of the first canonical slash pairing I know of. Also, an oxymoron.
I was just saying this morning how I’m not a fan of chocolate or vanilla teas, but the chocolate chips in this one looked so yummy. But yeah, kind of meh, because choco vanilla teas aren’t my thing.
I started reading this at lunch. Looking forward to finishing it later! http://archiveofourown.org/works/1035300
I thought this tea would be appropriate for my people paranoia this week. Total overload, seriously – all the hot sake I drank with dinner couldn’t help that much. It’s only Kindle fics and conspiracy theory rewatches of True Detective, folks, that is keeping away the vomity migraines that threaten to engulf.
Oh all the feels. I’m thinking I need this tea next: http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=24587
Oh right! The tea I’m actually drinking… Very creamy earl grey is creamy. Shmiracles mentioned earl grey moonlight to me the other day, and I’ve probably had it with other Adagio teas, but now I’m actually paying attention. I prefer my earl grey more sweet, less cream, but I’m very much not picky about earl greys. Hmm, I haven’t had a duchess earl in awhile…
This is a nice, light green tea with very faint floral and fruity notes, but is overall very subtle.
I also have a cold that’s not really going away. Here’s my fic rec of the day: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1183982
It’s always fun, after 16 years of slash fic reading, to come across a kink I’m not quite sure I’ve read before (it’s in the tags)
Now we bring you….
Ooh light thai chai with roses – it’s lovely. And I got to sit outside today and read a knitting!Stiles fic – http://archiveofourown.org/works/1057876 – and enjoy the sunshine.
Decent earl grey, for sure. Not as good as Harney’s, but still easy to drink a pot full, and I always like some blue cornflower with my bergamot.
I’m at work on Monday and getting over a cold and my bosses are gone and all I want to think about is new episodes of Teen Wolf and True Detective. How much work am I gonna get done today? Let’s see…
