1157 Tasting Notes
Oh no. Oh the drama. This is now all gone! Oh the humanity! Why?!?!?! I wanted it to last for much longer in the springtime. Obviously I could not stop drinking it, and its how we got into this trouble in the first place.
Yum. Elegant rose tea with little sugar crystals. It tastes so glorious.
I got to sleep in today, which was a pure delight.
Today my plans are to write, drink a lot of tea, and then read my book (I am not getting nearly the amount of reading I want too lately. That must be remidied!) and eat my seasonal package of Peeps. Peeps!
Its going to be a good day.
Today I had work, a lecture on modern art, and a small shopping trip! Excelent day, but now I need to write 3000 words to be on track for Camp Nanowrimo. So I need tea.
Lets start with something with caffine. I’m tired enough to need it.
This is it- sweet, uncomplicated, mellow. Good start. Lets get cracking!
Morning writing session, aided by tea.
I really like the balance here. Darjeeling can be strong, as can rose, but this blend doesnt let one flavor overpower the other one. It would be all too easy to have one of these flavors be too much, but this is a happy mix.
I like it, but its a strong cup. Be warned.
My friends pick for the second pot of tea this morning. She’d never had a champagne tea before, and was eager to try it. And thought I’m already scrapping the bottom of this tin (need more soon!) I cannot deny a friends request to try a tea.
This is just so elegant. We sat and talked and drank tea and it just colored the whole world pink and champagne colored. Perfect.
I had time for a leisurely breakfast with my friend before I had to go to work, and she had to head off on other adventures. So it was time for two pots of tea, favorites of mine, new to her.
Started off with a classic, with the fruit and honey goodness of Tower of London. (It does seem to be all I’m drinking lately, too, which is funny). She liked how obvious the honey note was. Yay for tea friends!
My friend made it out safe and sound, and we had a lovely evening. She’s a fellow tea drinker (I know only the best people), and we had fun among my stash picking out a soothing tea before bedtime.
This was her pick, so I brewed it up.
Its the perfect spring and summer chamomile tea, complex without being overwhelming, delicious and light. A perfect end to our evening.
I wanted to like this. I wanted to soo much! Strawberry? Love! Cream? Delicious! Champagne? Yes please!
This tea? Artificially sweet and rather tart. What went wrong? Gah.
Well, I’ve brewed up the last of this as I make the final preparations to my house for this evenings visit from my friend (how did I aquire so much dust?).
Sipdown. Not sorry to see you go, tea. You are not coming back!
