920 Tasting Notes
I did not sleep well last night. I dont know why, exactly, but thats the case. Bleh. And its going to be a very long day indeed.
So its time for delicious and failsafe tea. Oh Tower of London, your honey and fruit notes are the perfect companion to my breakfast of english muffins and local honey.
When I’m in a Nanowrimo session I tend to think of my tea as “writer juice,” like, “oh, time to do some writing, let me brew up some writer juce so I can get down to it.” Its so helpful, having a delicious cup at my side as I hash out plot and try to name all my characters.
This is a good one. Soft, creamy, and a delight to sip. Puts me in a good mood.
Back to writing!
I’m working on drinking teas that are not deeply thrilling to me, and this falls on that list.
A light steep helps keep the base from taking over compleatly, which is an important part of the whole arrangement. When I can get it right it has a decent orange flavor, but nothing completely overwhelming.
Well, thats at least a bit more down of this. And the tin it came in is gorgeous.
This mornings pot of tea.
I’m up early to try and do as much writing as I can, as its going to be another busy day.
I act as model for my friends Etsy shop, which is great fun. I get to wear the adorable knit caps and the fun dragon shaped scarves, and its always fun. We’ve got a photo shoot today, so I’ve got to get my writing and tea drinking done bright and early.
I oversteeped this a little bit this morning, so the base came through just a bit too much. Still, a good start to the morning.
Backlogged from yesterday.
It was one of those days with only a single pot of tea, so I decided the delicious, creamy cloud that is Yume was the one to do.
I wrote a lot for camp, got my hair cut, went to work, and went to a Disney movie viewing party (Mulan and Frozen), which was all delightful. But busy.
I had this this morning, and that feels like a very long time ago.
Early today one of my coworkers in my tiny office went into a seizure, out of the blue. It was terrifying, and my boss called for an ambulance and I got her out of her chair and onto the floor, and tried to keep her from failing into the furniture. She may not have been breathing for a minute.
The ambulance came and got her, and she was awake and talking by the time the paramedics arrived and got her out, but I’m still feeling pretty shaken. And, as we are not family, we wont hear anything unless her husband calls us.
We’ve never had anything like this before, either as an office or in my own personal life, so I’m a bit shaken.
Boyfriend came and brought me tea, something pepperminty, when I called to tell him. The heat helped.
I really hope she’s ok.
