1405 Tasting Notes
Writing and working out is done. Whew!
Spring cleaning is in progress. I have already broken one of my favorite mugs, a lovely yellow striped one, which I doubt I can replace. Grr! Why is it always the ones that are discontinued/antique, and not the ones from Ikea! Gah!
I’ve heard this is discontinued! Oh no! Well, I shall enjoy this amazing perfumed cloud while I can.
I am almost out of Paris! Eeep! How did we get to this point? Well, this pot served as my writer juce for phase one of this mornings scribblings. I’ve got a thousand words left to write today, so I should get down to it, pronto. Off I go. I should brew more tea, though.
Tea, a writers fuel. Yum.
Oh, right, Paris. As always it is delicious. I’m going to need more of it pronto.
I did not sleep well last night. I dont know why, exactly, but thats the case. Bleh. And its going to be a very long day indeed.
So its time for delicious and failsafe tea. Oh Tower of London, your honey and fruit notes are the perfect companion to my breakfast of english muffins and local honey.
When I’m in a Nanowrimo session I tend to think of my tea as “writer juice,” like, “oh, time to do some writing, let me brew up some writer juce so I can get down to it.” Its so helpful, having a delicious cup at my side as I hash out plot and try to name all my characters.
This is a good one. Soft, creamy, and a delight to sip. Puts me in a good mood.
Back to writing!
I’m working on drinking teas that are not deeply thrilling to me, and this falls on that list.
A light steep helps keep the base from taking over compleatly, which is an important part of the whole arrangement. When I can get it right it has a decent orange flavor, but nothing completely overwhelming.
Well, thats at least a bit more down of this. And the tin it came in is gorgeous.
