1492 Tasting Notes
I’m waking up in the darkness now. Its starting to be fall, even if it is not cold yet.
Its gonna be a really long day, so I’m taking a moment with this really nice cup of tea.
This particular incarnation is in sachets. A year ago, the loose and the sachet tastes exactly the same to me. But I’m now aware of the difference. What a difference a year makes!
The sachets are not bad, but the loose is, of course, better.
I had a really hard day. Frustrating, long, and I was near my wits end for a lot of it. Work is hard, and I’ve got more and more responsibilities. Most of the time I can handle it, but sometimes it kinda wears you down.
But, I came home to find that a hat I ordered had arrived, that Steepster had ordered itself, and that I had a cup of ginger tea.
I love ginger. When out to sushi I eat up all of my ginger, all of my boyfriends ginger, and all of the ginger they will give me. So I found this tea in target I could not resist.
And tonight, its warm and spicy and is making the day just a little less bad.
Steepster still seems to be having one of its little fits. It always emerges improved, but things get rather disordered in the process.
So, if anyone ever reads this, then I’m saying that I’m burning through this at an impressive rate. Its very citrus-y, a lemon tea and an earl grey mashed together, almost. I’ve been enjoying it as a summer tea.
I cant wait for the fall collections, though.
There was an earthquake last night! I’m in the US west coast, and felt my house and the bed shaking at 3 in the morning. Not a completely unique feeling (we get them every couple of years or so), but this was quite a big one! I hope people closer to the epicenter are alright.
I haven’t had this in a while. It was time for another cup of tea, and this sounded good. Sipping this reminds me how much I like this. Its nice, basic, and easy. Very good.
