drank Weishan Mao Feng by Harney & Sons
1817 tasting notes

My bestie texted me this morning to ask if we could have tea today. I said, “Yes, please!” our computer got a virus and now my daughter’s high school transcript has to be redone completely from scratch. Oy vey! Transcripts are the very least favorite part of homeschooling to me!

Bestie has been wanting to learn to like green and white teas, so I chose this for our first. Since I have reviewed it a couple of times recently, I won’t restate a whole lot of what I said before, but it was a little different today and that is what I wanted to focus on.

The recommended steeping time is two to three minutes, and I was cautious before and kept it on the low side. Since it is such a light tea, I decided to increase my steep time today.

Drinking the first steep, I found myself running my tongue over my teeth repeatedly. I realized that the tea had left a creamy, almost buttery feeling. Yum! From now on, I will steep this one for three minutes.

Nothing like that little hot burny feeling in the pit of your stomach when the computer eats hours of your original work. Been there…too frequently!

Yes, and the original was in an old Word format, nothing I did wood make it open, grades are lost and must be dug up in the attic in old lesson plan logs, and I am trying to learn how to set up tabs etc. in Apple’s Pages, a program I love but which has very little in the way of tutorials for making such a complex document! I finally found a template online I can use once I get all the information gathered together again, and I am under the gun because she has to have this transcript to go to school this fall! WWAAAAHHH! (First world problems, I know!)

ashmanra

Gee whiz! Would, not wood! I think AC got me!

When did the world evolve (DE-volve, excuse me) to the point where it takes one family member working nearly a 40-hour week just to handle paperwork? Ay-yi-yi!

ashmanra

You are so right! Fortunately, when hubby got home he found a copy of the document, slightly corrupted but readable, on his laptop, so he printed it and I can gather most of the info I need from that and just type it into the template tonight or tomorrow. Whew.

Next – the dreaded FAFSA.

I just loved it, after sweating and straining to get post-disaster taxes done a bunch earlier in usual, and after several tries getting it all punched in, the FAFSA auto-respond congratulated my son for completing all the required information when I did all the confounded work!

gmathis

No, I’m not bitter ;) I think I’d better just type TEA so as to calm down and get back on topic.

ashmanra

:) I remind myself that in heaven we won’t have to do taxes and other ridiculous paperwork!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
