903 Tasting Notes

There was an earthquake last night! I’m in the US west coast, and felt my house and the bed shaking at 3 in the morning. Not a completely unique feeling (we get them every couple of years or so), but this was quite a big one! I hope people closer to the epicenter are alright.
I haven’t had this in a while. It was time for another cup of tea, and this sounded good. Sipping this reminds me how much I like this. Its nice, basic, and easy. Very good.

Mercy! Glad all is well. We don’t like anything that makes our house shake!

I grew up in Earthquake country, so I’m more or less used to it, though its still unsettling.

I heard there was a lot of wine damage at the epicenter in Napa. Good thing I’d rather have tea?

TeaBrat

I was in the East Bay near Fremont and didn’t feel a thing!

I can see the bottom of this bag! A whole pound of tea, got in a Black Friday sale. I can see the bottom! I am somewhat impressed with myself.
Today its very honey like. Yum.

drank Citrus Blend by Harney & Sons

The work day yesterday was dreadful, but I had a lovely date afterwards, sushi and the theatre.
However that means I got very little sleep, and I have my morning class to teach.
I think I brewed this too long today. Its a little bit astringent. But its still quite drinkable, so that’s what I will do.

I am exsausted, and its not even noon, and I have a lot more to do today. Sheesh.
So I warmed up the kettle, got my pot and a cup out, and I am taking a minute to sit and sip.
This tea has a wonderfully thick and rich mouthfeel. It makes it filling, and very satisfying.

TeaBrat

I know the feeling, I am ready for a nap myself!

drank Pure Mint by Twinings

Autumn is on the horizon, isn’t it? The Fall Collections are coming out soon (hooray!), the leaves are starting to rattle, and I woke up in the pitch black this morning. The sun will be up by the time I have to actually go to work, but its dark out there.
Ugh. All the more reason for a cup of tea.
Rapidly running out of this, which is too bad, as its quite a nice bagged tea.

drank Nutty Almond Cream by Tiesta Tea

Unintentional sipdown! I didn’t realize how little I had left, but its not a problem. Everyone makes a version of this, or very nearly everyone.
And I can see why. Its pleasant, its pink, its easy.
I’ll get more sometime, I think, but there is no urgency. I’m just pleased with my hot pink cup of tea tonight.

Its been hard to wake up this week. I’ve been spending too long reading in bed, I think. I cant help it, there are such good books to read!
I’m almost out of this. And I’ve logged it 50 times now. So I think that’s a good idea of how much I like it.
That said, I think its aging faster than I can drink it, so its a bit less potent now.

drank Royal Wedding by Harney & Sons

I’m never quite sure where I stand with white tea, but I’m making an effort to have more of it. I think, once I’m more comfortable steeping it, that it could be a delightful collection of light and delicate teas.
This is tasting very much of almond today, which is splendid in my book. This is really enjoyable right now.

I went to a sewing night last night. I’m excited, I’ve got a few patterns I want to make, and some costumes I want to do, and I’ve just been a bit too lazy to do it, so this is turning into an excellent thing to make me actually get some things done.
I need to go buy fabric!
I got to sleep in a bit this morning, which was glorious. Hooray sleep.
This is a bit less citrus-y than usual, but I don’t mind at all. Its still quite nice.

Jennkay

Ooh, what kinds of things do you sew?

Rosehips

I’m learning, but I’ve sewn a few dresses. I’m working up to historical costuming.

I cant readily remember when I had a quiet weekend. Eeesh. So it means that Monday rolls around and I wonder what the hell happened. Where did my weekend go?
And its too early. Bleh.
I keep hoping its going to be fall, but it stays hot around here. Not a fan.

Stephanie

Weekends are NEVER long enough. I totally feel you.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
