1188 Tasting Notes
First day of September! And its going to be one hundred degrees today. Oh well.
I get today off of work, which is wonderful. I’m going to read a lot and go try out my new gym, which has a swimming pool. I cant wait to go swimming!
This is a sipdown. Its been pleasant, Citrus Blend, but I think that you and I are through. It was nice while it lasted.
The last day of August. Unbelievable.
Well, I’m ready for September. Tights and sweaters and the proper tea drinking temps! I am ready. I’ve been dreaming about squash.
However, I will savor the summer teas in my cupboard, and so, for that, I’m drinking this lovely cup of melon goodness.
How come melon candy is not a thing in the U.S.? I would think it would be a natural combination.
It was a long day yesterday. An Anime convention, which was fun, and then, unexpectedly karaoke. I’ve never been before, and I cant honestly say that I want to go back. It turns out, its drunk people all yelling into a microphone, off key, to some truly strange selections of songs.
I’m the stay at home with a book and a cup of tea kinda person, though I should try new things every now and then, to see if I like it.
I’m waking up in the darkness now. Its starting to be fall, even if it is not cold yet.
Its gonna be a really long day, so I’m taking a moment with this really nice cup of tea.
This particular incarnation is in sachets. A year ago, the loose and the sachet tastes exactly the same to me. But I’m now aware of the difference. What a difference a year makes!
The sachets are not bad, but the loose is, of course, better.
I had a really hard day. Frustrating, long, and I was near my wits end for a lot of it. Work is hard, and I’ve got more and more responsibilities. Most of the time I can handle it, but sometimes it kinda wears you down.
But, I came home to find that a hat I ordered had arrived, that Steepster had ordered itself, and that I had a cup of ginger tea.
I love ginger. When out to sushi I eat up all of my ginger, all of my boyfriends ginger, and all of the ginger they will give me. So I found this tea in target I could not resist.
And tonight, its warm and spicy and is making the day just a little less bad.
