68

I just got hit with an international headache, having to pay for interwebs in a place I moved away from over two months ago and for a time frame when I’m not even there. And with the threat that if they don’t get it within five days they’ll charge me even more, yet international money wires can take up to a week to process. My point? This calls for tea. Ugh.

I bought this like a-year-and-a-half ago, but I remember when I smelled this in the store, the waft of creamy caramel drew me in and I couldn’t say no. Dry, it smells so sweet and gooey, but of course, as expected, it has lost some of that charm after all this time.

I’m actually not really a fan of rooibos (and it took me a couple years to figure that out, after purchasing like 30 different rooibos blends), so the initial rooibos attack that hits me at the back of my throat when I take a sip is to be expected. But half a cup in, I’m starting to detect more of the caramel flavour. Now, memories of employees raving about how awesome this is as a latte are rushing back to me.

The colour of the liquor is a beautifully rich dark golden caramel. But alas, as I pour a second cup of this from my pot, I’m left with floating rooibos shrapnel, another groanworthy issue I have with rooibos. I’ll stop complaining, try to stop thinking about the interwebs crisis, and focus on the smooth crème caramel.

If it wasn’t while you lived there, how can it be your bill?

Also, I strongly approve of your icon. :D

Yeah, it’s nonsensical. I had it paid for until the middle of February, half a month after I moved away, but they claim that I still need to pay until the end of the month. They wanted a measly 137 kr, but it ended up costing another 300 kr for the bank to send it. :/

And thank you so much! Yours is also an excellent choice.

P.S. Copenhagen definitely wins hands down when it comes to Scandinavian capitals. LOVE it there. :)

Actually mine is probably, hopefully going to change soon. I had the hardest time finding something exactly like I was looking for and ended up modifying a logo from a Swedish museum. While I like the icon, its origins bothers me. We went on an outing to the local archeological museum and I had Mr Hobby Photographer take some pictures for me which will hopefully work out as a new icon. One that isn’t blatantly stolen. :)

Ah, are you worried about copyright infringements? I’m sure you’re fine, but either way, sounds like your future icon will be cool too.

Not really worried so much as irritated about it. :)
