276 Tasting Notes

Last night, the hubs and I went out for curry at a Thai restaurant we frequent. I had some of my veggie Massaman curry left over, so I brought it home and am having it for lunch today, along with this tea.

I had thought about chai with my curry, but decided I needed a plain tea that wouldn’t compete with the spices in the curry. Frothed some splenda and almond-coconut milk while the Assam brewed, and then combined for a nice malty latte. Perfect with my lunch.

Finished off this bag today (not sure why I never added it to my cupboard here). I am just not a tropical tisane person. Won’t be re-ordering it. It’s all right as an iced drink, but not really my… er… cup of tea. cough

I got a sample of this awhile back. I like that it goes well with the almond-coconut milk we have. Other than that, it’s not really all that memorable, just pleasant.

Enjoying my cup of Prince Vlad. Today is the last work day before a 4 day weekend. I am looking forward to it. I will be doing some spinning and will probably enjoy a few pots of tea whilst doing so.

Sorry..I need 2 tires I can’t afford also SO I sympathize with you!!

Thanks Bonnie! Lucky for me, a friend has one of the devices you hook up to a car’s computer to read what error codes it has thrown, and it looks like it was a “random cylinder misfire” which most likely means I just need new spark plugs or spark plug wires, which shouldn’t be too bad and can actually wait for a convenient time. whew!

Ok, for honesty’s sake, i will preface this by saying that I have been drinking for a couple of hours now. Also, I’m a lightweight when it comes to alcohol. PS – I’m at home, not driving, so don’t worry!

Ok – hubs made coffee and put some of my amaretto in it, and it smelled soooo good, so I had to try it with tea. I made pot of Black Dragon Pearls.

Before pouring, I added sugar and half & half to my cup, whipped it into a froth, poured into my amaretto, and then tea and…

OH MY GODDESS….

This is the best thing ever!

It kinda tastes like marshmallows. and it’s gooood. Yum!

Iridium

I love amaretto in iced coffee, so I know I’m going to have to try that! Hmmm, I wonder if we actually have any amaretto at the moment…

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.
