My cupboard number bumped up again because while I was out today (visiting with my Dad, and getting another tattoo done – details to follow in other tasting notes) I stopped at McQuarrie’s and picked up a few different teas on a whim.
This one, however, is one from MissB – and one I was definitely excited about! Boy do I like toffee, caramel, and essentially any other “taffy” like substance. Mmm!
It steeped up a touch bitter, despite a pretty short infusion time, but still had some relatively nice toffee and burnt sugar/brown sugar notes despite that little bit of bitterness. Not too sure I’m a huge fan of the black tea being used, though. Overall it was kind of average, and I’m thinking isn’t going to be terribly memorable in the long run. I much preferred the Black Currant bagged tea which I’m pretty sure was also by this company?
Unrelated – is anyone else watching Netflix’s Daredevil series? I’m on episode seven – and I’m really hooked. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Foggy is played by Elden Henson and I’ve kinda low key had a celebrity crush on him for years now. He should be in more things. He should be in all the things!
Also, I want Matt and the nurse to smoosh their faces into each other…
But not gonna lie; I’m not too terribly familiar with the Daredevil comics – and in fact most of my knowledge of the series stems from Kingpin since he’s a “cross over villain”, if you will, with Spiderman – and Spiderman is totally my jam. The actor who plays Kingpin in this is so amazing too! I sorta hate how much I love him – but he’s fucking adorable with Vanessa with all his shy/tender moments. And then he goes and kills a son of a bitch and is all hardcore…
Super fun to watch! Kinda disappointed that his assistant’s name wasn’t Alistair Smythe though – that would’ve really made me excited/happy. Missed opportunity, guys!
