1766 Tasting Notes
Thanks Sil for letting me try this one! (175)
It’s IS fruity; just as I was promised. I’m also tasting the tiniest bit of smoke, but it’s very delicately balanced. IT’s a nice wake-me-up cup as I struggle to take part in the day and be productive instead of surfing the internet, reading fic, and playing pokemon. (Some days, more than others, I really don’t want to be an adult!) Ha!
Here’s hoping this cup gives me the push I so sorely need!
This tea smelled so strongly of earth that I had to let it cool a bit before I was brave enough to try it. Now that it’s a nicer temperature I am enjoying the damp earthy notes I am getting from it. I think there’s a little bit of cocoa wavering in the background, as well as possibly vanilla? Interesting! I’m looking forward to steeping this again!
Hmmm. Carlos may be perfect in the eyes of Cecil, but sadly, not for me. Cecil can have him. :)
Although my heart is very sad about what’s happening in the show with canon-Carlos. At least he has good cell receiption? And a battery that doesn’t die? And plenty of opportunities for Science!™. (Not Biology. Not Chemistry. Science! He’s a Scientist dammit!)
Emergency Cotton Candy time!
So we just realized a few hours ago that water was leaking into our house. Crap. Lucky(?) for us, this isn’t our first time in a basement suite that’s flooded, AND luckily it wasn’t too bad. At least – it could have been worse. It could have hit the area of the house where we’ve got boxes of books stacked instead of our bedrooms. So, now we’re camping in the living room and watching tv and just trying to relax. I’m just sorta meh about it because it sucks but we’ve done what we can and the absolute worst case scenario is that we have to buy new mattresses and stay somewhere else if it turns out they need to rip the floors open to dry them completely. I think that’s the worst that could happen. We thought it might have been the insane thunderstorm that contributed to the water, but it might have been the hot water tank. We’ll see tomorrow.
But for now, it’s time for some Cotton Candy and half a bag of chocolate OMG’s. Sweet, sweet cotton candy. :)
OH! And Pokemon Y on my 3DS since I’m apparently not going into work tomorrow – time to game it up!
I decided to cold-steep this and it used up most of my tea so I thought why not brew up the last of it hot now, and drink it while I take a sample of my cold-brewed tea and then compare them! BAM! This is happening.
And after sipping both, I like it better hot. It’s basically liquid banana bread when you drink it hot, golden and sweet and very buttery… Cold? It’s a little bit odd. It’s still banana bread, with butter, but… it’s just not as good cold. Too bad – I would have been better served drinking it hot, especially since it’s such a heavy tea!
