1321 Tasting Notes
Peets is no longer doing their signature teas, and while this will mostly be alright, I will miss this terribly.
Winter Solstice is easily one of my favorite cold weather teas, rich, layered and complex, with a clear, bright note of orange peel and citrus.
I still have a fair bit of it, but its a bit bittersweet, now that this is my last tin!
This has been a tough year for tea companies closing!
Tea of last night. I was going through my samples bowl, and this is what came up, and voila!
The best thing about this is that it turns bright pink when brewed, which can be a mood lifter.
It wasn’t as strong or sweet as I remember it, but perhaps my sample was a little too elderly? Who knows. Still, enjoyed!
I am lagging behind today, as I got a migraine yesterday, in the middle of a work training, none the less, and I always feel a little hungover the day after. Couple that with a Monday and today has been a lot of fun.
But there is always tea, isn’t there? And on days like today one of my favorites must be summoned from the cupboard.
Is it autumn yet?
Oof, today I had to drag myself out of bed. Sleep is hard when it never cools down at night, and I had to hussle this morning to get where I was going.
That means there is, back home, half a pot of this stone cold and lonely. Oh, Boston, I never meant to harm you like that! I’m so sorry!
Gah, I hate scrambling and forgetting tea.
Whoops, dropped off the face of the earth there for a few days. Sorry guys, I had some travel, and I am seriously in the middle of Camp Nanowrimo. Argh, three thousand more words to go. I can do it! Wooo!
So, in tea news, I went into my local Peets to see if there were any of the Peets teas I like on sale, as they are expiring soon. Of the teas on sale, I’m afraid that none were the ones I really like, so what I’ve got will be the end of that particular tea train.
I will say, though, that there are a lot of other Black Currant fish in the sea, and I’ll be alrght with not having this in my cupboard, when I’ve finished it.
I was feeling uninspired this morning, so grabbed this, which is inoffensive. Some mornings I just don’t want to drink a truly wonderful tea, and ruin it with my feelings of profound meh. Ever have one of those days?
I am told that Peets is going to stop making teas! Eeep! They’re hardly my favorite, but they make at least one tea that is really good (not this one, sorry, Black Currant), which I will miss.
And this is my restful pot in the middle of the busy day.
I am a little nervous about how busy I’m going to be, even though I’ve done all these jobs before, and know the drill.
I didn’t sleep well last night, which did not really help, so the tea has got to be black, and due to nerves, has to be beloved. Thank you, Boston, for helping out!
This is the first of my truly insane Thursdays. This day of the week, with my current jobs, has always been my busiest, but now a coworker has retired, and I’m taking over her extra shift, which means that I’m just going to be run positively ragged.
The good news is that I have a small break, in which to work out, eat lunch, and drink tea.
But first thing in the morning I need a quick, brisk cup, and that’s what this was. Yaaay.
