1492 Tasting Notes
I think I’ve only got one more pot of this. Maybe one and a bit.
I’m glad. This is not a bad tea, but it was never going to be my favorite, and I’ve found it to be problematic to sip on. So getting it gone would be quite the achievement, for which I would be happy.
Though I must admit, it steeped pretty nicely today. Its just not my favorite combination of flavors.
I saw the bottom of the tin today while I was parcing this out! I cant believe it. Its amazing. I’ve only got a few pots of this left.
I’ve got mixed feelings about Marie-Antoinette. I love that is a sour apple tea, but I’m not completely sold. Something has just never set perfectly. Well, oh well.
Its hot! Argh. We have entered into my summer season, my least favorite. Argh.
Backlogged from yesterday.
Why am I so timid of green tea? I can never quite wrap my brain around it. But, with the temps yesterday being in the 100s, I thought it “felt” right to have.
For starts, this smells wonderful. Jasmine and a sparkiling grape note. Beautiful and pleasant. Why had I ignored this tin so long?
Well, brewed up the smell is not quite as impressive, and I found a bitter note lurking around in the back. This is, quite possibly, all my fault. I’m used to brewing robust black teas, and I might be applying that heavy handedness to this pot. Well, next time I’ll steep lighter, or with cooler water, and see what I think of it then.
Hurrah to drinking teas that have been languishing in the back of cupboards! Drink tea 2014!
Oh I am exsausted. I could not sleep last night. It took forever to get to sleep, and then I kept waking up, including half an hour before my alarm was supposed to go off. Ugh.
Probably its the heat. Its very hard for me to get proper sleep when its been so hot out. And its unpleasant. Ugh!
How is it Monday again? Every time I think I’ve just settled into the weekend, bam! Monday! Time to go back to the office! Gah!
On a morning like today I am not fiddling about with Meh teas. Nope. Bring me the standby, fruit and honey cup of Tower of London. Bring it to me!
Its going to be 107 today. It was 80 when I woke up this morning. Ugh. Its going to be a very, very unpleasant day. My air conditioner is already going. Ugh.
Well, a “hot weather” tea seemed appropriate.
I’m almost out of this lovely tea, again. I’ll miss it very much when its gone, but as this is the unexpected second time I’ve had it, it may not nessisarily be gone forever once I’ve drunk the last bit.
Its going to be hard to excercise this morning, but I’ll make it work. Best to get it over with, and then my lightest clothes, and hiding away from the hot, miserable world.
Up, and to my shift this morning. I like my Saturday job, but I’ve never liked the part were I have to get up. Waking up is hard to do!
I’m now in the official state of drinking this just to get it drunk. Its not bad, not by any stretch of the imagination, but its also not my favorite. It will be nice when I get to the end of it.
I woke up convinced it was Saturday. Argh! I want this week to be over.
Its going to be 100 degrees around here today, which means I need to drink my tea while I can. And I can right now.
Short steeps! Thats the magic combo of this, to make it enjoyable. And I am enjoying it. I still think I’m not going to buy more, after its done, but hey, I’ll sip it down without too much trouble.
