drank Almond Green Tea by Kusmi Tea
93 tasting notes

Yes, Im still here =)
Used too much internet, so my better half “grounded” me. You won’t belive how much I had to pay on our phonebill… let’s just say I’m near damn broke. Luckly, I have collected a HUUUGE amount of tea in my three year long fascination of tea. Food? Clothes? Chocolat? I can live without for some time… But life without tea? NEVER.

Started on the school again. They have a cup-with-a-lid policy. It means no fluid must enter the class without a secure lid on it. No prob for soda drinkers and healthy geeks with bottles. Huge prob for my starbuckmug without a lid. So, yesterday I invested on a HUGE travelmug by Bodum. Did I mention it was HUGE? It’s huge. And green. I am happy.

The tea menu for today is all green starting with this almond tea…

: I like it.

In the beginning, the taste was a little off. Too hot water, made the nuance disappear.
Luckly the saying “Time heals all wounds” seems to fit on hot water too. About a lection after my steeping, the tea revealed the yummy taste of almond. OR marcipan <3 potato potato. It taste good!

Note to self: Lower the heat for next cup.

Yup, that’s the one =) …and it does hold the tea warm for a long time!
I had another travelmug, from Georg Jensen, but it’s not as good as this one.
Did you hurt your hand? I read your logs, but couldn’t find the reason to the cute spelling.

cute spoelling, lol!
yes, i’ve managed to cut the tip of my right index finger rather badly, iv’e got a couple of stitches. they’re comiung out on monday, so hopefully it’ll start getting easier then. it dioesn’t hurt so much anymore, onlyu when i bump it, but it’s itching! yping is difficult, though, obvioisly.

Must be difficult for someone like you – you seem to write alot =)
I just read that you can trick your mind when it iching! Just rub the other hand on the spot where it itches on the damaged hand. Dunno if it’s true.

O.o iøve tried dictating to myself for writing fiction, but i found that was way harder than i thoguht when i couldn’t see the text. apparently the visual appearnace of the text is important to me.

Bio

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
