My 100th tasting note! /blows horn and throws confetti

It’s a work day. Brought out the Bodum cup with infuser basket, and went with the sample of Almond black tea.

Brews up very dark. Smells nice, but there’s a bit of an alcohol taste to the tea, I’m guessing they use an almond extract for the flavoring, which generally contains alcohol. I don’t like that taste, unfortunately, so I can’t see ordering this tea in the future.

Which makes me think I should give the one last serving in the packet to my coworker who likes tea. Why am I drinking it if it is something I wouldn’t order? I always get stuck in this “gotta use it up” mentality. “Using” also can include gifting. Duh! :D

Bio

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, my husband got me a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
