1537 Tasting Notes
Ugh, daylight savings time.
Anyone expecting elegant prose, or poetic desciptions, well, be gone, my friends. This day has been one long session of uggggggh, as I dragged my sorry carcass around, mewing slightly and bumping into objects.
I do not like waking up early, that’s for sure.
So! Bold! Rich! Strong! That’s what I grabbed this morning. Thank you for all your help, Winter Solstice.
This morning was cold and rainy, and a warm and beautiful cup of tea was just the right thing.
It was also my last of this, and this is a winter tea to me. Its pushing up against springtime, so I don’t think I’ll get another bag of this until the autumn, but I will get a bag then, for sure.
I don’t know why I’ve been letting my few remaining Butiki teas sit ignored on my shelf. I’ve been seeing others lament that they’ve waited too long, and I don’t want that, so its time to drink these guys.
And, with this, I may have waited a bit too long for perfection.
To be fair, its not bad, but the brandy has taken over this blend, forcing the plum to the side and the cheesecake all the way out.
Sunday! Ahh, a deep and appreciative breath for Sunday.
I thought this would be the perfect tea for this morning, my last pot of this delicious blend.
I shall miss this. I’ve never seen that David’s does much in the way of bringing back previous teas, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this to make a triumphant return.
