1217 Tasting Notes
I don’t know what came over me this morning, but an unflavored tea seemed to be the thing to drink.
I had a combination of excitement and trepidation, as I had heard a great deal about this tea. Trepidation unfounded, as this was lovely
This was gorgeous, light and delicious. The flavors could have come across as heavy and solid and unforgiving as a block of solid tea. This has got a lightness to it, which makes the flavors glow.
I think a slice of lemon would do well. I’ll try that next!
My body is slowly starting to adjust to the accursed daylight savings time, so I could risk a slightly “milder” black tea.
I think there are some blends by Harney that don’t get the fanfare of Paris, say, but are none the less beautiful teas. This is one of those. Its subtle, delicate, earthy with a hint of lemon sweetness and a figgy center. I think its a beautiful tea for those transition seasons, spring and fall, and is the tea equivalent of a cozy sweater. Not flashy, or even very stylish, but so warm and comforting that its a joy to have around.
Friday makes me poetic, apparently.
I keep stealing this from my boyfriends stash. I need to bring some of my own teas over to his house to drink, so I can work on my own stash!
I’ve been so, so busy lately, and its really cutting into my tea drinking, which is starting to distress me. I want to have more time to sit and drink tea!
Today is not looking much easier, either. Damn.
Its dark when I wake up right now. This is very confusing to me, and my alarm clock and myself continue to have disagreements over the time. The alarm clock wins.
But I can’t drink tea and be asleep at the same time, so I get up.
I needed a gentle tea today, so enter Cranberry Autumn. This tea is a good one for those “between times”, not really hot outside, not really cold. Just a pleasant sort of neutral day, so a pleasant and delicate tea goes very well.
I got a lot of this. I’m glad I like it!
