1809 Tasting Notes
This morning seems like a very long time ago now. And the day only just half over, with at least one more challenge ahead. Bleh.
So I needed quick and easy this morning, and grabbed this.
I tried a lighter steep today, and it actually came out nice! Theres a faint honey sweetness to this, when I brew it lightly, which I appreciate. I’m glad I gave it a go.
Backlog from, er, Monday?
As the days cool off a little, I’m starting to look forward to drinking tea during the evening again, and, as I have several things that need sipping down, I took this off my shelf.
I still am not impressed. Its supposed to taste like a pumpkin cheesecake, a worthy goal. It tastes like Rooibos. Boo.
So today is the one day of my working week that I can sleep in (hip hip hooray!) and it was spoiled by my phone ringing at 6:30 a.m. It was a friend of mine, but she hung up before I could answer, didn’t leave a message, and now I’m a bit anxious about that, as she’s going through some relationship stuff. Perhaps I’ll call her after I finish this cup of tea.
My interview yesterday went well, I must say. I now need to go through a background check, and some other things, so its a waiting game. I’m optimistic. We shall see!
So I know I’ve had this tea before, but it doesn’t have any notes saved for me? Hmm, maybe I got the wrong listing?
In any case, hello again Pumpkin Chai.
Its my mothers birthday today, so I must have a pumpkin tea, as its her favorite flavor.
Its also my next interview for the job I’ve been applying for- interview 3. I’m nervous, but its going to be ok! Alright, tea, lets do this.
I did not sleep very well last night. I have job interview # 3 tomorrow, I have a ton of work at my current job, and I need to bake a birthday cake tonight.
And yesterday, when I was supposed to be running errands all over the place, but there was an emergency work situation, where I needed to spend the next five hours of my Sunday working.
Boyfriend was a love, though, and made me lots of cups of peppermint tea, and gave me dinner, as I worked away.
So I’m tired today, and feeling nervy, and I hope this tea helps. It should! Its a good cup of tea, and I like it.
But still… nervy.
There are days when I realize that I am seriously warped. I think we are all shaped by where we live and where we grew up, and for me, that’s in the hot section of California. (I mean, its all the hot section, but still).
So I say ridiculous things like “oooh, only going to be 96 degrees today! its cooling down!” and today is such a day of madness.
So, while its still below 80, I’m quickly drinking tea, and dreaming of autumn.
Despite my new influx of fall teas, I’m still working on sipping down some of my less beloved teas.
That, and its going to be 106 today, so forget fall flavors.
This is one of my bagged teas. In my life, there are some mornings when there is nothing for it but to have a quick bagged tea, and moving on.
This, alas, is not my favorite bagged tea. Its a serviceable floral earl grey, but I’m not in love.
Still, it served its purpose this morning!
