1597 Tasting Notes
I am so ready for fall. And the fall collections are starting to come out! I’m excited.
The weather is refusing to cooperate, of course, but still. I am dreaming about my sweaters, and this, one of my favorite autumnal teas, helps with the fantasy.
Its been a serious day at work as well, so a beloved tea was a great tea to start off with.
Is it cold yet? Weather report says 95, so no. Grrr.
This weekend I went with some friends to see HMS Pinafore, which I’d never seen before, and is deeply silly, and Mr. Holmes, which was a really good movie.
Makes Monday all the harder, after such a fun weekend. Boo, Monday!
But so far its been pretty productive, and I always enjoy the first pot of tea of the week.
I’m really going to miss this blend when its gone, as, alas, it is no more. Its a wonderful winter tea. Perhaps I should pause in drinking it until its cold again?
I am working my way through my stash of this, and am always hopeful that its going to be better than it is.
My hopes are now, as I move to the bottom of the tin, that I’ll get more tea, and a bit less flotsam and jetsam. I love additions to tea, and like floral, but this is just too much. Too many addtions! And they don’t seem to be helping. Frustrating.
Oh blargh. Its 105 today and last night the control panel for my air conditioning unit broke. This is a tragedy of almost Greek proportions.
It also means I slept terribly and spent the morning roaming around my house making little keening noises, while trying to drink a mug of tea.
It was almost unbearable, and the thought of a cup of tea this evening is impossible.
I hate summer. I hate it so much. I am having my revenge by drinking “winter” teas, trying to force some sort of cosmic being to change the season for me. Blargh!
I’ve gotta fix the AC, so I can properly enjoy tea. I want to enjoy the tasty layers of fruit and pastry! I wanna have a pot of tea without sweating! Aaaah!
Good morning Steepster!
I’ve got my late start today, which is lovely, and so I can really sit and enjoy a pot of tea.
I am doing my best to force fall to happen, by drinking my autumnal teas and optimistically laying out sweaters. Its not working, as its still August, but I can dream!
I feel that this tea is so, so much a part of autumn. It just tastes like sweaters and crisp mornings and cool weather lovliness. Bring on the autumn!
