1486 Tasting Notes
This is one I’d long been eying, and after seeing the news for Butiki, I swept in and grabbed some. Appropriate for the season, I thought.
Its alright. There is a mellow warmth and earthy toasty note, and I do detect squash, but I’m not particularly getting pumpkin.
I’m glad I’ve got a bit of this, as I’m interested in playing around with it a bit more.
First batch of errands and things to do have been done. Wahoo!
Time for a cup of tea and a snack.
Snack is an English muffin with pumpkin brother, and a cup of this is the logical accompaniment.
Ah, I like this. If you focus, you can get a hint of crust swimming around in the tea, and the warmth of a fresh out of the oven pie. Its the perfect companion to my muffin.
Oh cruel alarm! Dragging this poor body into wakefulness. I do not approve!
So much to do today, I’ll be moving quite briskly through the day.
A serious tea, is therefore required, to drink this.
Kandy is a strong black, but not an obnoxious black. Good and strong, but subtle and easy to drink as well. I approve.
Ahh, a long day, and a rewarding cup of tea.
This tea has got a really strong memory for me. When I was first moving into my house, before everything got set up properly, and I was without internet, this was one of the teas I had. I’d drink a cup every night, listening to my new house, and imagining my pictures on the wall, and making lists of the stuff I’d need.
So the cup of this is taking me back to that quiet time.
Today has been a frantic scramble from one thing to the next. Gah. Up extra early, work a bit tricky, running around my significant other, who is without a car at the moment.
This was the tea of the morning, which seems so long ago.
This is the “quick! I NEED TEA!” tea, as I have yet to be able to screw it up. A useful skill.
I was outta town yesterday, with my boyfriend, visiting his family. His family is good people, but for one flaw. No tea. Not a single, solitary tea bag in the house, much less anything resembling loose leaf. I knew I should have brought my own!
So all of yesterday (and it was a long day) was a day without tea. Ugh. When I got home last night, I greeted all my teas like the old friends they are.
This morning I had some of this! This is such a light almond cloud. I really love how much you can taste the almond, its spectacular.
