599 Tasting Notes
I could not help it. My second pot of this rainy morning had to be Boston.
Its serving as my pot of “writer juice” this morning. I like to write with a cup of tea on hand. I find it helps me think.
I love almond. Last time I asked about almond perfume, and I am buisily hunting down the suggestions. I just bought myself a bar of almond scented soap, as well, which is lovely.
Sip, sip, type, type.
I woke up this morning to discover that it was raining. And cold! Perfection, that is some of my favorite weather.
I’ve been hording this little sample from Nina’s for just such a day, occationally picking it up and smelling it. It smells deliciously of smoke.
Wood smoke in a cup. Its amazingly true to the sent. I can see how some people might taste bacon in it. Or how they might find it too smoky.
I do not find it too smokey. It is strong, but I really like it. I have almost zero experience with Lapsang Souchong, but I will probably explore more of this. Is good!
A perfect cup for a cold rainy day.
Mint. I do get the mint out of this, but the rest of the title is not making an apperance in my cup. Where is the chocolate note, eh? Bah.
All said, its not dreadful or anything, I’m just not impressed. Not a lot of this, as I have a tiny amount. Still, it will be good to have it all sipped down and to move on to other non caf desert teas.
I feel cheated out of my weekend, and wish very much that I could go right back to bed and sleep for a while. Ah well.
Work, writing, and all that good stuff today. Paris tea for me.
I’d never had this loose leaf before, and I am amazed. I loved it in the sachet, but there is that undeniable depth of the loose leaf. Yum!
I have to go to a work training today. I indended to wake up earlir so I could do some writing and some excercise, but I didnt managed to do that. I slept. Thats actually lovely, but it means that I’ve got a lot of work to do after the training.
So this cup for me today. Its turning out that I am running low on this too. Oh no! Gah, I’m running through so much tea.
