1567 Tasting Notes
I didn’t sleep well last night. Stupid bad dreams, causing problems! Gah!
And even though its an extra day off work today, there is a massive sale going on at Goodwill, so I’m waking up and getting ready as early as if it was a work day.
I love thrift stores. They’re easily my favorite shops, and I look for them wherever I go.
Sure, I strike out every once in a while, but I’ve bought books and ballgowns at thrift stores. My favorite clothing items I own have come from the Goodwill, and my house has got some very eclectic and wonderful things, bought for $1.50.
So I’m excited. The only thing better than a thrift shop is a thrift shop on half price day!
Saturday! And a fun one, too. I’m off t an Anime Convention today, which is always good fun, and I am excited to go.
Significant other has a number of panels, games tournaments, and other such things that he wants to participate in, and I can’t wait to see the art in the vendors halls. I always seem to come back with a new picture.
I need to be fully energized, so thank you, Boston, for helping me out.
I had a phone interview today, with the HR department for the job I informally interviewed for on Tuesday. If they like my answers here I’ll get an in person interview.
So, I thought, as that interview went well, why not start the day the same way, with a freshly brewed pot of this lovely blend?
Maybe Paris tea will be my lucky charm tea for job hunting. I hope so!
Fingers crossed, this sounds like a good position. I like my current job, but I think its time to move on to new challenges!
Ordered this as a sample, as its nearly fall, and a little apple cinnamon tea could help make it colder, yes?
Yes? No? Drat.
It smells lovely, a perfect balance between cider and tea, but it brewed up much milder than its scent.
I wish it was more robust. It was pleasant enough, but not particularly flavorful.
In other news, my interview went well! She seemed to like me. There are more interviews to go, so we shall see!
Due to an very odd and somewhat distressing set of events last night, I did not sleep well at all.
This is a problem, as I have a job interview ish thing today- lunch with a lady who needs a personal assistant. So I want to make a good impression and not be a tired mess. Ugh.
Two things will help! Concealer (the wonder makeup), and tea.
Forget my sipdown attempts today- its all about the classic, beloved teas. May this delicious fruity cup lead me through the day triumphantly.
Three cheers for the sample pouches from Harney and Sons! I love that I can cheaply add a few very good sized samples of a tea I haven’t tried yet, and I’m mad for the sensible packaging. A resealable sample pouch? Count me in. Especially when the samples are generous enough for a few cups.
I’ve heard good things about this one, so was very eager to get my hands on it.
I’m enjoying this. Its a subtle fruity flavor, with a lovely aroma. I imagine this would be spectacular on a cool spring morning.
Its enjoyable now, too. I’m glad I have more to play around with.
After months of no tea buying, I finally snapped and ordered a ton of teas. Heh, eeek!
But I am optimistic, and wanted to get some of the autumnal flavors in, getting an early start on that, so I grabbed up some beloved fall flavors, and also a few classics.
And, in my cupboard, Paris is a classic. Its fruity, without being a fruit salad, and a seasonless flavor.
I am very happy to have it back in the cupboard! And now, on to yoga.
