8052 Tasting Notes
My other tea of the morning. I’ve decided to work from home until Wednesday given that it’s a holiday on tuesday and as a result have the world isn’t at work and my meetings are waaaaaaay less than normal. This gives me time to spend with my tea and means maaaaaybe, just maaaaaybe, i won’t work 12-16hr days for the next couple. Plus no travel time = more time for painting and cleaning and moving things around in the house. We picked up the paint yesterday so now it’s time to finish up the living room and the kitchen. They we’ll be set for putting all the other rooms away. and THAT would make me a happy camper, if we can finish it all by July 1st :)
Working from home today and as a result i decided it was time to finish off the last little cup i had left of the batch terri sent me to tie me over until my preorder arrives. cough guess uh…i should have had it slower? :) Cavo has a stash she may let me steal, so that might get me through to July, but this really is my go to tea on bad days. That’s not to say that i don’t love my other teas but this IS the tea i reach for when i want something comforting and easy that tastes great.
Today this was really nice. the peppercorns made it much spicier than normal so it was a happy time for me. Not as much ginger as i wanted, but given the peppercorns it still had kick. I need to remember to a) cold brew this tomorrow and b) add a little honey to see how that brings out the flavours.
Final Count: 182 [70 samples = fake cupboard at 112 with a week and a half to go! 1 tea from October left in my cupboard and 4 from December…not too shabby, figure maybe 110 by the time july rolls around at this rate heh]
sooo how do you make this tea taste even better? Mix it with “cream” from tea gscwe2nwhweriyw398y… that’s right. I did that today and it was deeeelicious. Adding the cream to this really brought out the creamier flavours and cut back on a little bit of the IN YO FACE that this tea has going for it sometimes. Overall, a really nice way to enjoy this tea as a non latte. :)
i’ve been sort of slackadasical the past week days in part because work has been crazy but also because getting the house in order has taken most of my energy between painting and shopping and moving things and cleaning and…and… and. so apologies for the crapp tasting notes as of late. I’m hoping that tomorrow i can spend some time with my tea and get back in to the groove. :) I’m sure things will get back to normal once i get the house in order lol
I love this tea a lot, though today i did NOT add maple syrup as i often do. I just wanted the tea..and it was my happy place today when i found out that a project that was closed has been reopened and hey….look! sill can do that! i need a new job. stat.
