1623 Tasting Notes
I think it’s been decided that I prefer this over Mom’s Apple Pie. (thanks OMGsrsly)
And Mulberry Magic over Pistachio Cream.
And lots of teas over Sugar and Spice.
And the Pumpkin Chai is lacking depth of flavour.
But Cocoberry is a win!
I’m watching Season 3, Episode 1 of Downton Abbey. God, it’s getting so soapy but I adore it.
I love this ridiculous tea, and enjoyed it while getting through my re-watch of Cloud Atlas. I can’t believe how much that story has gotten under my skin, and then writing was so charming. I’ll re-read it someday, but for now I’ll try to read something new.
Anyway, I think I should keep 20g of this around. It’s not for everyday, but it’s nice to have around.
Oh man, I hope that whoever decides to hire me isn’t looking at my Pinterest site because they will know how obsessed I am with Sherlock, Doctor Who and other things. And I really try to restrain myself too! I try not to pin pics that are just “OMG look at those eyes” and “I want to ruffle his hair” cause that’s too obvious, but there are still a lot of pictures there
Tumblr is great because of the gifs etc, but the OCD part of me just likes pinning to boards much much more…
And hanging around there led to me drinking this tea, and thinking happy fuzzy warm Johnlock thoughts because even if the show doesn’t go where I need it to go (now, damn you fanfic!), I still have the fiction to fall back on!
And this tea too… Well not really, it’s a sipdown, but I WILL need to get some Sherlock teas to drink while I think Sherlock-thoughts.
Obsessed much? Yep. How does this even happen? Oh right – the Kindle Paperwhite with the built-in light that lets me read waaaaay past my bedtime…
Right and this tea is good. It does start off strong and muddied but it evens out at the end of the sip. It’s dark with bursts of cinnamon, but then the bergamot and vanilla tone things down, and maybe, maybe things will work out.
No mustaches in this reunion though. Not that I’m anti-mustache – I love how everyone flipped out.
Thank you Heather Martin for the sample and thank you Shmiracles (I might have known!) for passing some on to her! :D I love how teas get around.
