898 Tasting Notes
I arrived early to work, so I went to the nearest place to fortify myself with more tea. Unfortunately I wasn’t early enough to go to the really good coffee shop, with the nice selection of tea, so I had to settle for a place that has all its tea in a basket near the front, that you pick out what you want and dump hot water on it.
So I picked this, as I like Darjeeling, and I’d never tried this brand before.
Meh. Its drinkable, but not exciting. One dimensional and weak. Will I never find a truly exceptional Darjeeling?
Its up extra early today, as I’m housesitting and need to tend to the pets of the household, which include three cats, a parakeet, two ducks and fifteen canaries. They dont need a lot of work, but still, those canaries need to be fed!
I turn, on such a morning, to something I already know, as opposed to something new. This has a lovely orange-spice quality to it. A very pleasant cup in the morning.
