1741 Tasting Notes
So I thought packing and moving wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but it’s tricky when I’m home with the baby and there’s no one else around, and she tries to unpack everything I’m doing as soon as I turn my back, or she decides to climb on the couch, and falls onto something hard, or she just won’t nap and throws things around the house and smacks me with her bottle.
That’s how my days have been.
And I’ve been needing tea. Lots of tea. I don’t think I’m getting enough and that’s part of why I feel so tense all the time. And when I do get tea it’s very hit or miss, but I’ve been drinking up the not-so-great’s and this tea would be classified there. It was only $2.50 though, and it’d probably be better as a latte.
I should probably make a latte. 4L of milk goes A LONG way with just me drinking it. Before, it could be gone in 2 days. :P
I think I put too much pressure on myself. All of this will work itself out. :P
This one wasn’t a sipdown, but I’m down to 104, and Sil is graciously holding onto about 11 new ones for me. Maybe I’ll still end up under 100 by the time I get those from her. :P I still have about 115 oz though. SO MUCH.
I’m pretty sure I’ve reviewed this a few times, and if not here’s the tl:dr: I like it a lot.
Now, I want to talk about Cloud Atlas (with little to no spoilers). Has anyone seen the movie? Or read the book? I read the book, and really enjoyed it, but was slightly disappointed when I reached the end. But then, it got under my skin a bit and after a day or so I was really pleased.
And so I finally got a chance to watch the epic 3 hour adaption that barely happened. And while there were times through it that I felt, oh man thi is long, but by the time I got to the end I was so enthralled and I laughed and cried at all the right parts.
And I can totally see why the critics would hate this sort of a thing because it’s weird but it’s also sorta beautiful too, and I have a feeling that this will be one I’ll come to every so often so I can peel back the layers just a little bit more…
Unlike this tea, which pretty much delivers what it promises. :P
I drank 6 oz of this, but wasn’t really impressed. I then drank 6 oz of TARDIS, enjoyed it, and finished off the last 6 oz – it was much better this time around. Mood is such a funny thing with tea.
I like this, but am not really sure how it’s different from Laoshan Black – it seems darker/richer, I guess? But I think I’d rather just get more LB in the future.
