1055 Tasting Notes
That was one of the worst nights sleep I’ve had in a very long time. Bleh.
So, in preparation for this mornings business, I am drinking this beautiful cup of tea.
I wish I had a perfume that smelled like this tastes, warm, slightly sweet, roasty…. Its just such a lovely cup. It really does taste like an indulgence.
Is there such a thing as almond perfume?
What this morning needed was even more tea. So more tea I will have. Second day of elevenses! (sadly, due to work, Elevenses is almost exclusivly limited to the weekend).
I figured I’d stick with the theme, and drink more pumpkin tea.
I think I must be the only one in the world who does not get a diffrence between this and Grandma’s pumpkin pie. I get no chocolate at all!
Today is the day of one of my families few traditions. Pumpkin day. We always go to a pumpkin patch and find ourselves good gourds for carving. We take our Jack-O-Lanterns very seriously.
In the interest of being thematic, I decided it was time for this.
Oh this is good. Creamy, pumpkin-y, with a crisp sugar note, that suggests that this is, in fact, Creme Brulee (which is my favorite, I must admit). This is probably one of my favorite autumn teas, and my favorite of the pumpkin blends.
I am having myself some elevenses! Pot of this fragrant and lovely tea, and some vanilla merengue cookies, and a quiet moment in the morning.
Done with work for the day. After this pot of tea, time for errands, and then a massive housecleaning. I never like to clean, until I’m doing then, and its all good, and the house is clean and tidy, and I feel much better.
Theres nothing wrong with Pumpkin Chai, but its not as pumpkin-y as I want. I have other pumpkin tea with much more defined notes of pumpkin.
Still, this is warming and pleasant. I dont regret buying this, but I dont know how much more of it I will get in future.
Long day ahead. Expect an awful lot of tea to be drunk!
