It was sipdown day yesterday and I have to say it was not all that satisfying. Most of the time it was probably because I wasn’t in the mood for a particular tea but I would drink it just to finish it off. Or it might be that these are the bits you know you don’t enjoy, which is why they’re still dragging around your cupboard, you couldn’t make yourself drink them when you had so many other tastier alternatives. It really is a moronic thing to do, this planned sipdown thing. if you’re going about it the wrong way it can be a waste of tea. Like the guy who enters a contest to eat the most hot dogs in a minute. He’s not enjoying them, he’s doing it for sport.
So given the mostly failed tea experiences yesterday, I woke up this morning to remedy the situation. And since I’ve been thinking about the peppermint patty since two days ago when I had it, and since everyone is still talking about it, I made myself some. All is right with the world.
I hope this tea is around for a long time because it is so so good it makes you want to weep. In a good way. It is a masterpiece.
