1812 Tasting Notes
It is pouring, and windy, and when I got home from work the power was out. It turned back on long enough for me to heat up dinner and toast an english muffin, before it winked out again. And I had no flashlights. This is an oversight for anyone in a house by herself, so I ran to the store to grab some flashlights. During this trip the power company helpfully called me to tell me the power was out.
I had just managed to assemble the batteries in my new flashlights when the power came back on, and the power company helpfully texted me to let me know the power was back up and running.
I’ve brought this to work as the new work tea, where it is performing like a champion. I don’t need to pay attention to it, its sweet and generally pleasant, and I don’t feel sad if I’ve not been swept away by flavor, as I’m busy.
Gosh, what a night. I think some more tea is called for.
This was taken to work, and then drunk down from there. Indeed, teas that I’m only meh about go down an absolute treat at work, where I can drink them without feeling like I need to pay too much attention to them. Its glorious!
So I’ve drunk this down! Wahoo!
I’m going to lower my rating, as it could not catch the spark of pure delight it used to. I’ll have to think really hard about putting this back in my cupboard.
Ooof! Hello everyone, I’ve had a very busy few weeks, so I’m happy to have a bit time to catch up my logging!
Its a day of errands for me, as these holiday days often are. Its good to have a holiday weekend to run around in. Makes life that much easier.
But even though I have a lot to do today, its an easy morning, which is great. So I can induldge in a more low key tea.
I like this, but I don’t loooove it. Its a vanilla tinged chai, which is not particularly heavy on the spices. This is actually a feature, not a bug for me, and I appreciate its delicate balance. Good for a lazy morning!
