1694 Tasting Notes
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!
Woo. I still have a few cups of this left! Not bad considering I’ve shared my NightVale teas with others.
Anyway, I’ve disovered that I like the thai chai blend because it’s nice and creamy, and because of that, I enjoy this blend. Would I want 3 oz of this? IDK. I think there was another Thai Chai blend I liked more…
I bought this during the last sale because it was really cheap and I was curious, so why not pop one in? Who’s afraid of Pu-erh? Not me!
I wonder if I was supposed to rinse this first? Oh well.
This is nice though. It’s really earthy, but warming and comforting. It’s not as fancy/special as my beloved Special Dark, but this is still a nice go-to puerh. I like the tuocha cups too – they seem like they’d be easy to take to work.
