171 Tasting Notes
I did NOT sleep enough last night. Day from hell yesterday, nearly everything that go wrong, went wrong.
Underwire broke, power outage while straightening my hair, battery died in my jeep, lawn mower ran out of gas, burnt supper. I was ready to lock myself in my room. So, anxiety kept me awake last night, as well as fb.
Today is a new day, this tea will help me get through it all.
I still want to be a house wife so that I never have to see 6am again.
Mmmmm. . . I love this. There’s nothing I would change.
I saw my other half off yesterday and at the same time my boss is going on vacation. So not only has my time at worked increased, my work at home has as well. Today is my day off, the only one I get this week, and it was scheduled to it’s breaking point. And all at once, this morning, everything fell through. So, I will take it. This cup is the perfect way to start the day that only has grocery shopping on the agenda.
I manage a pet store. I feel like I needed to add that first because otherwise it makes no sense.
I have made a rule that no one cleans any cages until after their cup of tea/coffee/hard liquor. Okay not hard liquor, that wouldn’t be professional. I broke my rule today and started with the budgies, then I stabbed myself with their swing under my nail. I have now deduced that this day sucks. It doesn’t really, just in some ways. My other half is now gone for the whole summer with Army. The day he gets back he has rehearsal for a wedding he’s best man for, then wedding the next day. Which means I get to see him in September. On the bright side I have FINALLY mastered standard driving! So GET OFF THE SIDEWALKS JEEPMAMA COMIN’ THROUGH!!
Also, I remembered to bring good tea to work, now that I bought a good kettle. So, I’m enjoying this bold, little cuppa. Then I get to show the ferrets whose boss.
I’m in love with this tea and it’s almost gone. I could live in this cup. It’s bold and malty and I could drink it over and over and over.
Plus it distracts me from learning how to drive standard. . . All cars should just be automatic.
Feeling supremely lazy this morning so I grabbed one these on my way to work.
Also, I need to buy a new kettle for at work because the one my boss bought is one of those one side coffee, one side hot water jobbies and it makes every cup taste like hot plastic.
Not that a cup os steeped tea tastes much better. Now everyone yell at me so I’ll stop!
I’m sick AGAIN! I got this one as a sample in my last order and, like every other butiki tea I’ve had, I love it. I added honey, which is not the norm for me, but my throat hurts so bad.
The taste it light a sweet, but I have zero appetite, so hopefully tea will keep me going!
mmmm! I woke up in a rotten mood. I’m off work today and heavily relying on good tea to snap me out of this funk.
I didn’t check the temp of the water, but I think it was a little cool. I’m getting heavier cinnamon than I remember. Apple and vegetal green tea. The smell is all potato though.
Murderous rage is fading.
My dream tea, materialized! I’m drinking this with a touch of skim milk and a half tea spoon of raw sugar. I have also had it straight and I love it both ways, but I was in the mood for sweetness.
Stacy is my hero. The first sip coats your mouth with a warm, comforting sweetness. You first taste the chai spice blend, then as soon as it leaves your mouth it’s 100% licorice. I find myself getting completely lost in it, distracted even. I’ve taken it to work in my thermos to work every day.
It’s perfect! :)
i can’t really find the steeping parameters that I enjoy. This tea is just not appealing to me. hopefully I find the good spot soon.
I’ve taken to drinking my black tea bare. It’s been a journey spanning decades(. . . but not too many decades ;) )
This is fantastic. Sweet and creamy and not overpoweringly coconut.
