1779 Tasting Notes
This is a pleasant and inoffensive tea. The base is smooth, but doesn’t really stand out, and the fruit is good: naturally tasty without loads of artificial flavourings etc.
I’ll have to order samples from them some time as I’ve been happy with what I’ve had!
Oh and it’s my birthday and I ended up getting the new Kindle Paperwhite and I just want to go home re-organize my entire digital library because I’m cool like that. :P But I am working instead, and will watch the Hobbit later with friends and eat ice cream cake. I’ve got all weekend to organize my books. (Well realistically, I have the next few years to do that unless I break it). I absolutely LOVE that I can add books/fanfic to it just by emailing it. I was considering the Kobo but that feature is an absolute must for me.
Guys – I am SO spoiled. :)
Woohoo! So I’m not completely jaded on tea. I drank two cups of this this morning and I am enjoying it! My left eye keeps twitching and that is… worrisome, but I imagine that’s from the lack of sleep as I’m not actually doing anything that would be stressing me. I’m at work, and looking at how to spend my birthday monies! (New kindle, Tardis tea, and new clothes for work!) Tomorrow is my actual birthday but we saw my family last weekend and they gave me presents then instead of waiting – I’m not complaining!
So, anyway. This is a great cup. I’m happy I can actually enjoy it again.
Oh and Bryan Lee O’Malley is tweeting like crazy about Southland Tales today, which I was a sucker for and was really excited about only to go… huh, afterwards. It’s so oddball but THIS is what stood out for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=pmgKiAnYmbY Man, I never expected to like Justin Timberlake, but I do. I really do.
Still, even with this tea there’s no joy. NO JOY. I even added cream…. I think going to bed at 11:30 and waking up at 4 is the culprit! So, lets cross our fingers for a good night’s sleep tonight and better luck tomorrow.
And I guess the Paperwhite would be a bad thing if I wanted to go to bed on time – a lighted ereader would just enable me to stay up loooonger. But imagine how much more I’d be able to read in a day!
I guess I’ve got the tea blah’s today. Apparently! (Although it means I’m not that excited about ordering new tea either – good for my wallet?) But I’ve been drinking fancy ones too. :|
This one is good, but isn’t knocking my socks off. Sorry Sil. I’m pretty sure it’s me. I’ll save the rest of my sample for a day when I’m more relaxed and upbeat.
At least I’ve got Sherlock fic to get my through the day: http://archiveofourown.org/works/798586
I’m back! And back to drinking regular tea! I had a great mini-vacation visiting my family, even though I was a bit sad that I won’t see them again for at least a year while I’m in Toronto…
This is a great tea to jump back into things with though. I’m just going to drink and resteep it all morning. :)
I’m so damn sleepy though! My birthday is Friday but a lot of people gave me birthday money and I’m sorta really tempted to buy a Paperwhite Kindle, even though my Kindle Keyboard is perfectly fine… (but it’s NEW! SHINY! BRIGHTER!) I basically just stayed up too late because I was debating whether I should order it now to get it for Friday, but it’s not a good idea to make that choice when you’re sleepy, AND I can buy it in-store at The Source IF I decide to actually do it, so I’ll just wait.
And now I gotta caffeinate myself back up!!! Stupid me for staying up so late, but I also wasn’t expecting to wake up at 4:30 and not fall back asleep.
Sipdown! I’ve been on holiday since Thursday, which means lots of visiting, operating new tea kettles, and not getting much computer time. Now we’re visiting my bf’s family and relaxing at their house. It’s pretty great.
This tea was too. Even though I’m getting jaded on some of DT’s blends, I’m happy I found this.
