1537 Tasting Notes
I dont go into work until the afternoon, so I could (and did) sleep in a little, and can enjoy a great deal of tea before I have to go.
Morning pot. This brewed up extra nice today as well! Rose cloud, floating tea. Yum.
I’m applying to jobs right now. I currently work three jobs, none of them with benefits or anything like that, and I would like to be able to afford to have fewer jobs.
Applying is always stressful, but its better than the overworked stress, so here I go!
What a dreadful day. I thought that I had Screwed Something Up in a major way. It turns out to be alright, but I was very upset for a while. At least it spurred me on to making sure that the current projects are in order.
Sheesh. There are days I just dont feel like I’m good at anything, you know?
A surefire cup was required. This was what came to mind. This is serious tea, even if it is decaf. I can drink it, in its comfy vanilla-ness, and feel calm. And thats all I can do about it tonight.
I wish I had been paying better attention this morning, as this brewed up very nice, and I wish I’d been paying attention to steep times.
I’d thought, when I got this, that it would be an spiced orange tea, but its really more like a plain orange tea. Its an interesting twist!
Is it Monday already? How does the weekend vanish so quickly?
ROT freebie, and I’m always happy to get free tea.
Not one I would have bought on my own, though it sounds generally like something I’d like (fruity).
I can smell the blackberry more than I can taste it, but I do get a reasonably strong sage flavor. It was fun to try, but I’m not going to be buying this. It served it purpose as an afternoon cup of caffine, though!
Sunday! Hurrah! I love being able to sleep in a bit, and then wake up, eat a leisurely breakfast, and drink a pot of tea.
Its still hot around here, so a “hot weather” tea is in order. What better than a hawaiian tea?
This is so very well balanced. Its got elements that could easily overpower eachother, but I find it to be mellow and delicious.
Now, to get to work on my resume. I’m looking to change jobs, which will never happen unless I do some applying!
I woke up exsausted. Dont you just hate that? Well, fortunatly, there is tea for this!
So I brewed up some of this.
I know that a short steep is important and makes this shine its best. I did it a little too long today. Bah.
Going to be a fun day. I’ve got to do my morning shift at work, but there will be a play tonight! I love the theatre.
A brief history of this tea and myself.
Last year my parents were in Hawaii, and brought me this tea, which was my first Lupicia tea (goodness, that was only a year ago?. I loved it, it was a floating tea, where one sip made me lightheaded with flavor.
I finished it, sure that it was unlikely that I’d ever have it again. So when it showed up, in limited supply, on the Lupicia website I ordered a tin so fast that I think I strained something.
And, you know, its not quite what I remember, but its still pretty darn good.
Yay for a second chance at tea!
I got this as a Lupicia sample, and, questing for a bagged black for this morning, I plucked it out of my sample bowl.
Eh not bad! I’m not the worlds biggest fan of plain blacks, but this is smooth and pleasant. I’m not going to rush right out for more, but its pretty good for this morning.
