1117 Tasting Notes
So I picked some of this up from my local Whole Foods on a whim. It had been a while since I bought a new tea, and this one sounded summery and interesting. I had visions of a raspberry style creamsicle, and I like fruity black teas. Worth a shot, anyway!
This is an unusual blend. For starts, its super colorful. Lots of cornflower petals, bits of orange peel, and what look like Fruity Pebbles but must be the raspberries. Not a lot of actual tea, in comparison.
Brewed up, this has a strong flavor of herbs, and just a hint of a brighter fruit note, but not enough for me to tell if it was the raspberry or the orange.
Hmm. I’m not impressed by the first brewing. I’ve got a bit more (though not a great deal, thank goodness), so I can experiment a bit more.
Morning thrifting went very well, with the aquisition of a stripy shirt, some black flats, and a maroon colored scarf, along with a silver candle holder. No good tea cups, though. Oh well.
I’m working on my wordcount. Its not bad. I’ve got about 500 more to do today to meet my target, and then I should have time to work out, before heading off to the family BBQ. I do love a cookout. Everything is so tasty!
Alright, 500 words. Lets do this! Come on Paris, lets go.
For my fellow tea drinkers in the U.S. Happy 4th of July! I’m going to hunt down the best thrift store sales in the area, do my writing, and then go to visit my family and have the annual bbq.
And no work! Thats always a good thing.
Hopefully I shall have several cups of tea as well.
Oh its been a long day. Many, many jobs to do, a lot to take care of, including work for two separate jobs, taking care of a friends canaries, ducks and cat, and then more work. And my work count.
I’m ready to relax. Vanilla Comoro is my go to relaxation tea, and its doing its job, a beautiful vanilla cloud.
At least, here in the states, tomorrow is a holiday, so I can get a lot of rest in.
Its gonna be a long day!
I’ve got my morning shift, and then I have to go and tend to the morning session of animal care. I’m pet sitting two ducks, a parakeet, fifteen canaries and a cat.
The ducks are jerks.
Then I’ve got my Nanowrimo writing, and some work for one of my bosses, and working out, and then my evening class, and then collapse. Whew.
An easy tea is required.
This is also proof that you should give teas a chance. I love ginger, but am kinda meh on peach. If this hadnt been a gift from my boyfriend, I might never have had it, and yet I really, really like it now.
