Having an absolutely atrocious week. Between being attacked in a public bathroom for using what the person thought was the wrong one for me to be using (and then having security called to escort me off the premises for being a “pervert”, ugh), coming home to find one of my cats had passed away and her sister having completely lost her mind (that was Monday, it’s now Thursday and she STILL hasn’t touched her food or water…), followed by being blamed for the cat’s death, my dad leaving the province for work for the week so I don’t have anyone on my side, and then being too broke at the moment to afford to put enough gas in my car to go see my pony…ugh….Tea is my only comfort right now…
Once again, I found myself reaching for my tin of Butterfly Jasmine to console me. I wasn’t in the mood for the SweeTart profile of my usual Bear Trap, but didn’t feel like a full bodied black or pu’erh, and something about oolong didn’t appeal to me. So it came down to this, Sencha Ashikubo, Gyokuro, and my Japanese Sour Cherry green tea from Silk Road. For whatever reason the jasmine won.
It’s as beautiful as ever, lightly sweet, floral without being perfumey, and a lovely green base. I really do love it, but it’s not really doing what I’d hoped it would.
sigh Back to moping around and hoping nothing else goes wrong I guess. At least I didn’t ruin my tea?
