3091 Tasting Notes
This tea has really grown on me, & the 2013 batch is definitely better that 2012 I think, although right now I can’t exactly say how, LOL. But it’s a tea with a really nice energy, perfect for bringing on a state of mindfulness, & tasty too.
I’m feeling somewhat better now, & I think the other component to my grumpiness, without a doubt, is the lack of sunlight. Even though it is gloomy outside, I’m gonna head out now & dig up sweet potatoes, because playing in the dirt always makes me feel better!
I’m feeling like a grumpus. In part, it’s due to lack of self-care. I haven’t been getting enough sleep, haven’t been spending enough quality time alone doing yoga, reiki, & such, & have been on a potato eating binge so my feet hurt (yes, it’s documented, more than once now…dammit).
I also have a bit of a resentment going, which I need to resolve by sending Reiki to the person in question. “Just for today, there is no anger.”
And I need to relax & enjoy more tea. Starting with this one, introduced to me by Sil. Thank you, tea sister, thank you.
I’ve been relaxing at Tony’s this afternoon, watching back to back episodes of the walking dead. We’re in the middle of season 3, & this isn’t really my kind of show, but I feel compelled to watch it & see what happens, I don’t know why.
I wanted more tea, but I don’t have alot of options here: this, bags of ‘awake’, earl grey. This seemed like the best option. I used to like it more than I do now.
I only have a few students today. The first one is due to arrive any moment, & she likes green tea. I’ve been serving her a different green tea each week, mostly from Verdant, whose teas have totally blown her away. One week I gave her a cup of Matcha (& that day my wisking technique was at an all time high, I’d like to add, so it was beautiful & foamy! I should have took a photo). She’d never had anything like it!
Last week I unloaded a tazo green tea bag on her, (someone has to drink that stuff, right?), & this week I made her a cup of this spring cherry, which I used to be in love with, years ago when the company was young & not so commercial. I still enjoy this tea from time to time, so I’ll have a cup too. Lightly fruity & floral, but no cough syrupy taste, I think she’ll like it.
Good morning Steepster! This is a lovely black bilochun style tea, with a thick, rich, & resinous flavor that I’m really enjoying this morning.
I steeped a loose Tbl in my 16 oz pot for 3 minutes. Now I’m resteeping for 5.
I’ve been really busy lately, & I feel that my tea logging has been rather lame, but thus is life, right?
On monday I booked 2 weddings, one in dec & one for next sept
On Tuesday I booked the first of my recurrent xmas gigs. I have several companies that usually hire me to play in the lobby of their building for a few hours once each december. That’s the month that I basically live in my car, lol
Yesterday I booked my Trio (harp, flute, cello/bass) to do a 2 hour gig at the st louis art museum, a private party that wants 2 hours of all Beatles tunes. That should be fun!
I have a few other gigs in the works, it will be interesting to see what the day brings!
