3715 Tasting Notes
Whee! Thursday morning working from home! here’s hoping i get time to make lots of tea given that tomorrow I’ll be without. Thought I’d start out with a latte instead of my smoothie to kick off things with a warm drink. This is an interesting matcha. I think i need to play with it a bit more since there’s an underlying taste there. Maybe I didn’t whisk it enough.
wheeeeee! Moar tea! I’m not too sure why I’m so happy today but it’s a good day. One more day to prepare for my client meeting on friday and then it’s the weekend! Which of course will be full of testing and other work related things but it’ll be the weekend! And I can get groceries and spend the rest of the weekend drinking tea at home while i work.
Maybe if i get lucky I can get in one of the games we picked up in the pas 2 weeks that I haven’t had a chance to open yet sigh
WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!! It’s tea day! not like any day ISN’T tea day but today just seems like more than usual. Also, my last note was my 300th tasting note so that’s super exciting. Not nearly as many as everyone else around here but in my head I’m really at 600 since I’ll do one tasting note for 3 cups of th same tea heh.
Anyway still loving this matcha and still REALLY enjoying my morning smoothies. Going to miss having one Friday morning…might have to actually have COFFEE to keep my awake during my all day client visit blech
Cold Brew! wheee! So i have not one…not two but FIVE travel type mug things of tea on my desk at the moment. It’s great! Cold brewed this one last night to see how I like it. Only downside? It needs a bit of sweetner as a cold brew so i’ll have to go “borrow” some honey or something from downstairs to finish it off. Good times though, having fun cold brewing things :)
Sipdown! YAY mostly because my Verdant order arrived today and I still have an incoming Butiki Order. So at least that’s one more tea package that I can say is gone…though there will likely be a re-order of this one in the future lol. As always really enjoying the delicate raspbery/chocolate balance stacy managed to achieve here. so tasty! Really looking forward to how she manages to craft the new blend from whomever wins the contest!
Oh yeah BABY! Frank reblended this so now I can drink the stash I have in my cuboard instead of hoarding it. I bought 2 bags (first time ever for me) of this so that I’ll have lots to have around for a while. There’s just something about this blend that I love more than ANYof the other cheesecale blends that he’s had. It’s MUCH better than the caramel Cheesecake he did. oh happy day!!
First cup of the morning! Once again thanks to the Tea Merchant for their generous sample! This is a nice cup for the morning. I was inspired by a comment made by kittena yesterday so I actually have a smoothie in a water bottle and two tea mugs full of tea lol. YAY for drinking it up in the morning! Especially nice since it’s a cool (but still nice) wet, rainy dark morning here in toronto.
This assam has a toasty warm flavourful taste this morning. A bit like a warm hug on a cold day, cuddled under the blankets listening to the rain patter on the windows.
