Nice. Like Adagio’s Foxtrot minus the alto notes of the rooibos. Thanks to Spencer for my first Peet’s taste test.

Its finally cold enough for me to wear tights! And a non summer hat! And a cape! So I have done all of those things, and stopped by the local Peets on my lunch break to get a cuppa.
This is what I came away with. You know how in coffee shops, when you ask for tea, you can sometimes see the wheels just grind to a halt, while the poor barista frantically thinks “tea? tea?! Do we serve that?!?!”. Well, I had such a barista today, who undoubtedly could have walked me fearlessly through the land of coffee beverages, but was less secure with tea. So to make it simple, I got this Earl Grey.
I’m not impressed. Its weak, and unmemorable, and even the often too bitter for me bergamot is noticeably lackluster. Oh well, was worth a shot.

This morning’s pot of tea. I have no idea why I went for this over the Winter Solstice that I intended to make.

This was the big morning pot of tea, enjoyable even when it got cold.

Unclear just how much tea I drank last night, but I realized I never logged any of it. Oh well, this is the first cup of the morning!

Took the leaves from the previously-steeped 4-cup pot of tea and brewed a single cup with them.

It is surprising how well this accompanies chips, salsa, and cheese.

Sounds like a perfect combo.

The smokiness with the spiciness was great!

Normally, I share a pot of this with several of my coworkers. Today, I am in the office before them…and I think I will be drinking a pot of it by myself.

Finished the last of this. While it was good, I do not think I shall miss it.

Chilled, first thing in the morning, because I didn’t want to drink it last night.

Just finished this tin. It was good, but I cannot say that I would rush to buy more, now.

Leftover from last night – this was not bad, cold.
