1538 Tasting Notes
I’ve been drinking this most every day at work. It was a gift from my boss, and is actually quite nice. Its got holiday spices in it, but its not heavy, as it seems cut pretty firmly with a lemon or citrus flavor, which makes it very pleasant.
I drank my last baggie of it today, so its a sipdown! That’s also nice, as I get to bring a new bagged tea from the stash in for worktime sipping!
Its only Tuesday, isn’t it? That’s madness.
Last night, while my plan was to sit and drink tea and relax, a rather personal emergency happened (all is in a state of general wellness now), but I was up too late, and rather stressed.
So this morning I broke out a favorite. No time to tinker with lesser teas, just going directly to the best of my cupboard.
Thank goodness for Tower. It soothed me very well this morning, and today seemed almost normal.
Sheesh, life has been in the way of tea drinking lately.
Its the weekend! And my lovely boyfriend made me toast and tea, and I slept in, and it was glorious.
And I need this weekend! I had a very tricky week, but I’m mostly feeling good about where I left it. So I’m just going to relax and have fun.
This cup is from my lovely boyfriend, and I’m going to enjoy it thoroughly.
So I thought I’d give this one another whirl this afternoon and, well, I’m disappointed again.
It smells so wonderful. As I opened the pouch and was hit with the pure smell of chocolate peanut butter cups, and the brew smelled grand as well.
But it tastes flat and a little sour. Why, peanut butter cup, why? What happened to you? Where is my rich and fudgy treat?
So this is the latest tin of sachets to get carted off to work, where I will sip as I type.
I was not a fan when I first got this, but my impression today was more favorable. I need some more cups before I can really get a proper rating in place, but I will say I didn’t flinch while drinking it down.
Hurrah for work tea! It gives new life to neglected teas.
Have you ever had a tea day when you don’t want to drink anything particularly special? I just woke up with a case of the tea blahs, where I wanted tea, but nothing fancy, nothing that required too much focus or care.
Enter Holiday Breakfast, which could be summed up as “basic.” And it was exactly the right thing for a day when I don’t want anything special.
