870 Tasting Notes
I just noticed that this is my Friday tea. A little treat to push me through the last workday of the week.
I played host to my parents this morning, whose shower is broken, so came to use mine this morning. Not a problem, I had some tea and a book and a quiet moment.
Really glad of that cuppa. This morning is already quite busy, and its not even 9 yet. Its gonna be a very full work day.
I cant wait for the weekend.
My cup of the morning. This arrived with my latest order, and while I dont actively seek out Earl Greys, I wont say no if I get it for free!
Harney, to me, is a very quiet and dignified company, and their blends are quiet and dignified as well.
This is a very good Earl. Smooth, and fragrant. My boyfriend thought it smelled floral, which I can sorta see.
I don’t think I’ll get a tin of this, but it’s nice to have every once in a while.
This was my gift from by boyfriend, and what a sweet gesture.
This is an interesting combo. The mix of blacks, the earl grey, and the jasmine, floating through the flavors. A chameleon tea, one moment I taste jasmine, one earl grey, and the next a blend of the grouping.
Not going to be a favorite, I think, but actually quite nice. A decent floral black.
Lovely, wonderful boyfriend dropped by my office this morning with a cup of this and also a bag of a new tea that he’d picked up over the weekend for me. Lovely man.
This is not a great Jarjeeling, I must say. It does what it says on the tin, but thats about it. It was, however, doctored heavily by by boyfriend, who poured a lot of honey in it, so there was a sweetness at the bottom of the cup.
I like that guy. He knows me very well.
The agony of a Monday morning. I am very tired, as I was out late at a going away party for a dear friend. Its weird that she’ll be so very far away.
So I’m tired, and today its weirdly overcast and somewhat unpleasant. Come on, self. Lets do this Monday thing!
Citrus! Today its a bit bitter, but a lemon bitter, not a black tea bitter.
