1021 Tasting Notes
It was such a busy weekend! I wen’t to the local Shakespeare company production of Comedy of Errors, which was fun, and then spent the rest of the time indoors, whining about the heat.
Its very hot. Almost too hot for tea. Gah.
This was this mornings cup, but I’m drinking one now. I’m tired, and could use a delicious cup of wake up juice right now.
And I can sleep a bit longer tomorrow. That will be delightful.
So I picked some of this up from my local Whole Foods on a whim. It had been a while since I bought a new tea, and this one sounded summery and interesting. I had visions of a raspberry style creamsicle, and I like fruity black teas. Worth a shot, anyway!
This is an unusual blend. For starts, its super colorful. Lots of cornflower petals, bits of orange peel, and what look like Fruity Pebbles but must be the raspberries. Not a lot of actual tea, in comparison.
Brewed up, this has a strong flavor of herbs, and just a hint of a brighter fruit note, but not enough for me to tell if it was the raspberry or the orange.
Hmm. I’m not impressed by the first brewing. I’ve got a bit more (though not a great deal, thank goodness), so I can experiment a bit more.
Morning thrifting went very well, with the aquisition of a stripy shirt, some black flats, and a maroon colored scarf, along with a silver candle holder. No good tea cups, though. Oh well.
I’m working on my wordcount. Its not bad. I’ve got about 500 more to do today to meet my target, and then I should have time to work out, before heading off to the family BBQ. I do love a cookout. Everything is so tasty!
Alright, 500 words. Lets do this! Come on Paris, lets go.
For my fellow tea drinkers in the U.S. Happy 4th of July! I’m going to hunt down the best thrift store sales in the area, do my writing, and then go to visit my family and have the annual bbq.
And no work! Thats always a good thing.
Hopefully I shall have several cups of tea as well.
