A new Plum Deluxe favorite! This is a delicious blend of bergamot and fruity strawberries. I love everything about it. It steeps a strong, dark brew with bold flavors. Not too overwhelming on the bergamot either, which I appreciate. I love bergamot, but if it’s too strong I’ve noticed it gives me a bit of a headache.
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 20 minutes
Unfortunately, this didn’t make for a satisfying resteep at all. It’s very lightly flavored, very lightly flavored, and isn’t really worth the extra time when I could be drinking a fresh cup of something else. But now I know!
This is my “something new” for Mastress Alita’s A June Wedding sipdown prompt.
Side Note No. 1 – I’ve been spending some time over on Litsy and Goodreads this week. Does anyone have accounts there? I’d love to follow to see what everyone’s reading with their tea.
Side Note No. 2 – I’m having a conflict of conscience. All my life I’ve added two spaces after each period. That’s the rules! My fingers automatically hit the spacebar twice but lately the two spaces look so weird. So I delete a space. But that looks weird too. Why is this?! So now all my paragraphs and sentences are inconsistent – one space here, two spaces there. It’s making me uncomfortable. I did look on trusty Google and apparently the APA (which is the formatting/style guide I learned and used growing up) was the only one that recommended, nay demanded, two spaces after a period. Even they gave it up in 2019 and said that one space is sufficient. How do I retrain my fingers after over twenty years of double-tapping that spacebar? A challenge, indeed…
Side Note No. 3 – Is Steepster broken again? Good grief.
Edit – My note posted to the dashboard, so maybe it’s just that I’m the only one having tea today.
