1772 Tasting Notes
I needed this tea today.
I sabotaged myself so that I needed it. I couldn’t sleep last night because I was worried about my interview today so I went to bed at 1, and read this fic about Lestrade/Mycroft that was surprisingly good (just not a pairing I’d put any thought into) and I ended up reading until 3:30 just to finish the damn thing, and then if had an angsty ending. (http://archiveofourown.org/works/446107, if anyone is interested)
Good thing there’s a sequel?
K-Bear woke up right around then, so I got her back to bed, and then when she woke up at 7, I ended up cuddling her back to sleep so it was fitful for the last two hours. She kicks a lot and when I woke she had moved around so much that her feet were by my head. Little butt.
So I needed Tiger Tea to kick some sense into me. I think it worked. I think I had a good interview, but I didn’t get to say as much as I wanted. I don’t know if that means I was talking too much, she didn’t like me, or if she just hadn’t done a lot of interviews. Having sat on the other side of that table, I could see that third possibility, so I’ll just hope for the best!
Ok – ANOTHER easy sipdown from VariaTEA. (70). I’m now exactly at the point where my current teas equals my expected incoming teas. :O
This tastes like fake banana – like the bananas in runts. Which, actually is pretty good. And once this cools the cocoa and walnut flavours show up.
Yeah, I could probably go for more of this. I like it more than Tealux’s Chocolate Monkey.
So I made this at 9 as my last caffenated tea. Let’s see if I can get to sleep before 1 or 2 tonight! I just haven’t been able to shut my brain off the past few nights, but I’ve got an interview tomorrow at 10:30 and I need to be sharp. NEEEEEEED TO. I’m pretty pumped though. I can do this.
This is a decent cookie tea. It’s not sweet enough to be dough, but the walnuts are rather nice. It’s so freakin’ expensive though so I wouldn’t buy it ever again.
I like this, but I’m surprised at how strong the mate is, or how much it’s affecting me. It’s probably due in part to not sleeping enough last night (baby was up late and then I played Sim City til 3:30AM to wind down and lost track of time. Whoops). So I’m a little head-spinny after drinking this but I’m enjoying it!
I’ll just be careful with it.
I made two cups of SoHo today and dumped both. The first was really flat and awful, so I thought I’d make it again with better results. Well – it was marginally better.
But THIS cup has renewed my faith in H&S teas. I made it super strong and poured into 250ml of milk and frothed it up. YES. I love it.
Mmmmmm… this is a lovely Butiki tea to end my evening with! I’m just on the 2nd of my two planned Supernatural episodes, drinking this, and knitting some silly mitts for my poor cold kid.
Then I’ll start my GoT Winter is Coming scarf! :D
I found out today that I was the lucky winner of the Butiki contest! I’m so stoked. I picked the blue bird jar because I’m a sucker for birds, and now I’m drinking Butiki tea to celebrate! I’ve only got one cup of this left, and one cup of Caramel Vanilla Assam and then I’m totally cleaned out until my order arrives. That’ll be… odd.
And it’s time for this one again! I only steeped it two minutes, yet it still smells sharp and bold. It tastes great too. I’ll try and resteep it at least once before moving onto another cup. (Sadly I am awful for not re-steeping multiple times…)
And now that I’ve read all your logs and contributed my own, it’s off to the job board!
And… not to ravelry. (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/cavocorax)
:( I just finished knitting scarves for my daughter and my nephew and am out of projects at the moment and it’s making me mental! I need to be working on something but I don’t have any inspiration at the moment. Part of me thinks I should teach myself crochet so I have more options, while I ALSO think I should keep on knitting so I get better at that!
Riiiiigh. Job board? Ok then. I’ll be back in an hour or so. :P
