8164 Tasting Notes
For those that have been around a while… today we finally got around to submitting my job role for evaluation with HR. As in, after the like year? 2? of going back and forth on what my role should really entail while i do a little of everything…we’re finally getting close to the finish line. What does it really mean? Nothing yet…but the possibility of getting to hire underlings for me and a bump in grade…paving the way for more corporate ladder climbing if i’m so inclined…or yeah..and theoretically a raise. lol
so i had this tea…to celebrate. yay
Noms. I made a small order the other day from tea-historic as i like to try and support the folks within the community who are trying things out. Plus, given our swapping history, i was fairly sure that i’d enjoy at least some of the selections from her store, as she wouldn’t be selling them if she didn’t like them :)
This one is tasty! I have often dropped cacao shells in to my LB, but i can’t say that i’ve tried it with an assam. As expected, this one works. It’s very much a delicious chocolatey tea that isn’t overly sweet. I supposed you could add a little sugar to it (or milk and sugar!) to really turn it in to a decadent beverage but i won’t need all that. Even cold, this is yummy!
So glad the weekend is almost here. I’ve been busy “adulting” this week – trying to get organised financially to start investing and getting my husband settled with retirement savings….i want a break! haha This one’s almost done so i may use my free tea with david’s to pick up 50g of this one….not much else i need, but i do have until march to use it, so there is still lots of time!
Final Count: 56
Pulled this tea out for a change because i am having an incredibly frustrating work day. I strongly dislike people giving attitude back when someone is just asking questions to help understand the ask and make sure they’re providing the right recommendation. Especially from a team member that i go out of my way to help often. So i needed to take a step back, find my happy place and calm down a little….so i picked this tea. Still delicious but i think i need to stick to my usual white steeping parameters versus MF’s weird parameters lol Glad i have more to play with though, i might let my parents have more of this since it’s expensive and they adore it.
