1217 Tasting Notes
I am sipping this while trying to put out some work fires. Despite what I said in my last tasting note, about begining to pale on this, I’m enjoying it quite a bit. I brewed it a little stronger, and its quite a powerful cup. Not wham pow kind of overpowering, but very noticable. Its still a soft flavor, but the stronger steep has brought it too the forfront.
My second cup of this, and my opinion holds. This is nice. It is, in fact, nicer than I expected it to be, and it suits today. In my part of the world its going to be in the lower 90’s. Gah. Its too early for this summer weather, thats for sure. Blerh.
Off I go, to get ready for work on this hot day.
How am I going through my teas so very quickly? How have I managed that? Gah! This is my last pot of Yume until I can get myself to a Lupicia and get more tea.
How my world has changed! When I started on Steepster, I had about 20 teas, which I considered excessive. Now, even though I’m actively trying to control my numbers, I still have double that now. Its funny how, now, I stare at the tea in my kitchen, saying to myself “I have nothing to drink!” Ha.
Yume is a delightful spring cup, creamy and strawberry like. I enjoy it very much indeed. But this is the end of this tin. I’ve just been breezing through the Lupicia teas this year.
Tea of the morning today.
I’m beginng to pale on this. Its still the softest, most delicate rose tea that I’ve ever owned, but I dont think it ages very well. Still, its a very nice tea. I dont think I’ve experienced the Harney & Sons tea that I have not found very good.
After I’ve done this tin, I’ll take a little break, I think.
My town hosts the local Scottish Games every year, and, as a proud Scotswoman, I don the family tartan and go. Its A great deal of fun. There is British Food, men throwing heavy objects in skirts (the men, not the objects), and all the bagpipes you could ever want. I love that stuff.
Its quite an afternoon, and I had a lot of fun, but was gasping for a cup of tea when I got home. Well, I dont have any thistle tea, so I figured an English Rose tea was the closest thing.
Its good! And it will help power my last spurt of writing for today. I need it. I’ve got 3k words to write today. Whew. Off I go!
