1667 Tasting Notes
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.
The work day yesterday was dreadful, but I had a lovely date afterwards, sushi and the theatre.
However that means I got very little sleep, and I have my morning class to teach.
I think I brewed this too long today. Its a little bit astringent. But its still quite drinkable, so that’s what I will do.
Autumn is on the horizon, isn’t it? The Fall Collections are coming out soon (hooray!), the leaves are starting to rattle, and I woke up in the pitch black this morning. The sun will be up by the time I have to actually go to work, but its dark out there.
Ugh. All the more reason for a cup of tea.
Rapidly running out of this, which is too bad, as its quite a nice bagged tea.
Unintentional sipdown! I didn’t realize how little I had left, but its not a problem. Everyone makes a version of this, or very nearly everyone.
And I can see why. Its pleasant, its pink, its easy.
I’ll get more sometime, I think, but there is no urgency. I’m just pleased with my hot pink cup of tea tonight.
