1191 Tasting Notes
I did not sleep well. I’ve got a lot of job stress, and had many nightmares and restless sleep last night.
I’m hoping today goes really well, and I’ve started the day off with a favorite tea, because life today is too stressful to have a bleh tea.
My fencing coach called me last night, and asked if I could teach the evening class, which I’m going to do. Stressed about that too, though it will be fun, I think.
I guess we’ll see if I’ve survived the week.
Tea of this afternoon, after resume send outs. Why is pressing send on an application so stressful?
I think I’m compelled, every time I have this, to say that its the smell of the thing, rather than the taste, that really makes it. Delicious. You can smell the apricot down to its core. Yum.
It tastes light, fruity, and generally unimpressive pleasant. It smells like heaven.
First to review this tea, eh? No pressure.
I got this at a little tea shop in Berkeley about a month ago. They had some interesting blends and I got this little sample packet, to try this oolong, which suggested notes of vanilla and clover honey, which are surefire discriptors to get me to buy a product.
They are not kidding with the term Light Oolong. This is so delicate and subtle that its taken me a few cups to really get a hold on this.
Light, but not bad. A watercolor wash of oolong, and, yes, a subtle after taste of honey floating by. Its very calming and gentle, and I like it.
I may not ever have it again, but this was a lovely pot of tea.
I dont go into work until the afternoon, so I could (and did) sleep in a little, and can enjoy a great deal of tea before I have to go.
Morning pot. This brewed up extra nice today as well! Rose cloud, floating tea. Yum.
I’m applying to jobs right now. I currently work three jobs, none of them with benefits or anything like that, and I would like to be able to afford to have fewer jobs.
Applying is always stressful, but its better than the overworked stress, so here I go!
What a dreadful day. I thought that I had Screwed Something Up in a major way. It turns out to be alright, but I was very upset for a while. At least it spurred me on to making sure that the current projects are in order.
Sheesh. There are days I just dont feel like I’m good at anything, you know?
A surefire cup was required. This was what came to mind. This is serious tea, even if it is decaf. I can drink it, in its comfy vanilla-ness, and feel calm. And thats all I can do about it tonight.
I wish I had been paying better attention this morning, as this brewed up very nice, and I wish I’d been paying attention to steep times.
I’d thought, when I got this, that it would be an spiced orange tea, but its really more like a plain orange tea. Its an interesting twist!
Is it Monday already? How does the weekend vanish so quickly?
ROT freebie, and I’m always happy to get free tea.
Not one I would have bought on my own, though it sounds generally like something I’d like (fruity).
I can smell the blackberry more than I can taste it, but I do get a reasonably strong sage flavor. It was fun to try, but I’m not going to be buying this. It served it purpose as an afternoon cup of caffine, though!
Sunday! Hurrah! I love being able to sleep in a bit, and then wake up, eat a leisurely breakfast, and drink a pot of tea.
Its still hot around here, so a “hot weather” tea is in order. What better than a hawaiian tea?
This is so very well balanced. Its got elements that could easily overpower eachother, but I find it to be mellow and delicious.
Now, to get to work on my resume. I’m looking to change jobs, which will never happen unless I do some applying!
I woke up exsausted. Dont you just hate that? Well, fortunatly, there is tea for this!
So I brewed up some of this.
I know that a short steep is important and makes this shine its best. I did it a little too long today. Bah.
Going to be a fun day. I’ve got to do my morning shift at work, but there will be a play tonight! I love the theatre.
