1020 Tasting Notes
I’m a believer in seasonality. I dont always, but mostly I try to eat things in season, partially because they’re fresher at that time, and partially because it just feel right.
That said, I dont eat candy corn, though I dearly love it, much past Halloween. I have enough of this tasty blend for one more pot, which I may finish up today.
But November is filled with flavor delights as well!
Its back in stock at Peets! So I got a cup of it during my lunchbreak, along with a new tin of the stuff. Its still “autumn” in my tea drinking mind, but I cannot help myself with this. I really like Winter Solstice, and had images of going back when I felt a little more “winter” only to find it all gone. And theres a lot in a tin, so it will last plenty long.
Happy sigh. Its been a long Monday (and its only midday), but not a horrid one. And with this on hand, I feel a bit more ready for the rest of the day, including my Nanowrimo word count.
The usual goodness, spicy and warm with a hint of citrus.
Yay for daylight savings time! I’m awake in the light.
Its going to be a windy, cold and bright day. This may be my only cup of tea, so my desire for good tea won out over my need to sip down some meh blends that I have.
I do love this. Its sweetish and mellow and lovely. Hopefully it will tide me well over for the day.
I over leafed this, but it was the end of my packet, and I figured why not. It did not noticably alter the flavors, so thats good.
This was my afternoon pot of tea to help with the writing I needed to do. (Still some writing left, though. Drat! Onwards I go in that arena.)
This makes a Sipdown. I might get an ounce or so again next year, but it is just as nice to have it all sipped down.
Today is day two of Nanowrimo, plus work, plus errands, plus lots of stuff. I need a gorgeous cup. This is it.
I cannot stop saying how lovely this is, though no one ever listens. Its gorgeous, this tea. Just gorgeous. Warm, with a hint of smoke and a lovely undercurrent of caramel and vanilla, its a treasure of a tea. Perfect for when you have two thousand words to write and no time to do it in. Eeeps!
