1635 Tasting Notes
I made this as an after dinner tea, but tonight it’s sorta nasty and dirty. I think I oversteeped it, but that’s the end of that sample anyway.
You know what’s funny? I poked through the tea cupboard at work today and found three little tins. Full tins. They were mine from 2 years ago when I stopped drinking tea (bc I was pregnant). I left them for others to drink and no one went for them. I’ll just take them back and hope thru aren’t stale!
They were Mighty leaf Chocolate Truffle Rooibos, DT Coco Chai, and Saigon Chai. I guess I didn’t realize rooibos was safe while pregnant.
Yikes! This is first day of work after a year of mat leave. The company has changed so much they are giving me an orientation today with a new hire.
Because my bf is busy in classes from 8-7 today, I had to get up at 6 so I could get the baby to daycare, and be at work for 9. I’ll have to leave work early (3?) to pick her up as well. I’m going to hate Mondays! (He can drive her the other days). I should really learn to drive his car…
The baby seems to have a cold and Saturday was brutal. She was much happier yesterday but slept fitfully. I hope she’s ok at the daycare (she doesn’t seem to have contagious symptoms) but if I have to, I’ll grab a cab to pick her up if they send her home…
Too much going on today. Good thing I’ve got my Tiger tea!!!
(While I’m drinking Verdant’s Autumn Harvest Laoshan Green in my other tumbler, I’m trying to use this one for sipdowns so I can alternate between trying a new tea, and finishing off the last of some old!)
This was really enjoyable. It’s so sweet and chocolatey and mmmmm. I love raspberry chocolate. It makes me think of these fancy Godiva chocolate bars we used to buy when I worked at Chapters and had a 30% discount. (Those days were great, but I didn’t make a lot of money as a lot went back to Chapters every week…)
I probably shouldn’t be drinking sweet teas like this before I’ve had anything to eat, but the baby got me up at 6, and everyone else will probalby sleep in until 11 or so, and I don’t want to make more noise than I can help while in the kitchen. Priorities = tea. Food later?
I have so many loose samples everywhere – I’m going to copy Sil and spend some time reorganizing it all today! I packed up so many samples to Courtney yesterday and it made room in some of my boxes, so maybe it won’t look so chaotic!
