1486 Tasting Notes
Second working cup of the day.
I did not expect to like this. I’m not exactly sure why, maybe because the last tea I had from the English Tea Shop was something I did not care for at all. Hmm.
But this was actually very pleasant indeed. I found it very refreshing in the middle of the day.
I don’t get overmuch blueberry out of it, but I did get a gentle fruitiness, and the delicacy of the elderflower. Turns out I quite like elderflower!
It was the first day of tea at my new job! I got permission to bring my own teas, so as not to drink the (rather boring) things that the office provides for clients. Plus I don’t want to drain the office of tea. I drink enough of the stuff that I’d rather keep it to my own stash, so as not to make my boss go out and get more.
But it left me in fuzz this morning, trying to figure out what to bring. I’d love to bring loose leaf, but I’m afraid that it might be too messy and hard to do. So bagged it is! I’ve still got some bags, that should be easy.
So I grabbed a little sack of bagged teas that my sister gave me as part of my Christmas present. I wasn’t sure when I’d get to them when she first gave me them, but now I’ll have them drunk in no time!
I started the day with this, which was much jucier than I expected it to be. It was very light and refreshing, rather to my surprise. Goes to show that a pleasant tea experience can be found just about anywhere.
Tea of this evening.
I need a cuppa before I go and face the gym. And I need to sleep well tonight, so this is the one for me.
I wanted to really, really like this. A white chocolate peppermint loveliness? And yet it falls almost completely flat. I don’t know what it is missing, but it is missing something.
On good news, I talked to my new boss and she is totally on board with me bringing a mug and my own teas to the office! I will pick some easy and good teas to the office, and brew myself many cups in the coming days. Hurrah!
Tea of this morning!
I was very excited to have some teas from a Quarter to Tea, and snapped up some in the Black Friday sale. However I have not got around to trying any till today.
This is very pleasant. There is a real flavor of apple, followed by a delicate cinnamon. A bit like a tea/cider hybrid. It would be fab in the autumn, but its really nice on a cold morning.
Uh oh. I got home, started my work out, and then went, my throat feels a little sore.
Uh oh. I cannot be sick right now. Firstly, I just finished being sick, and second, I’m still on my own in the office, until next week!
So quickly I am brewing, and drinking, a bunch of delicious, soothing teas. Come on, peppermint, help a girl out.
