From Fortnum & Mason

Fortnum’s has stocked this green tea continuously since the eighteenth century, which says a great deal about its likeability. The tightly rolled leaves first resemble gunpowder pellets, which uncurl when brewed to give an unexpectedly peaceful and delicate tea. Excellent served without milk after dinner, either hot or iced.

I seem to recall I drank this last time I was writing a hopeless paper of misery and procrastination. I’m a creature of habit, unfortunately.

I’ve watched Buffy season 1-6, but never finished season 7. I want to do that. Right. Now. I want to finish the last six books of Wheel of Time. I want to know how A Storm of Ice and Fire ends. I don’t actually know my green teas very well. I have too many regrets and unfulfilled goals to die by paper tonight!

Flavors: Butter, Smoke, Vegetal


I hope you survived! :)


Thanks! It was a close thing when the lawnmower guy decided to start his thing outside my window an hour after my attempted nap, but I somehow managed! :)

A delicious, slightly bitter green tea. Best when steeped to strength – creates a nice amber color in the cup and the bite is a nice touch after a meal.

Advent Day 17

This cup was fairly smooth when hot, but then I ran off to chase down a food dehydrator on Craigslist and when I got back this cup was (of course) cold. But it’s still enjoyable cold! It smells very sweet and buttery. The sip is buttery with a slight grassy tang on the finish. It’s good, just not my preferred type of tea being unflavored green.
