1534 Tasting Notes
I had a bunch of black tea bits lying around and since I rarely if ever have a regular sized cup of tea, I combined them all to make my usual size (two cups worth).
Not bad, overall but it needed a little something extra and we have chocolate milk in the house so I added a few dollops. Ahhhh perfection. Albeit a touch odd. I won’t be making this a habit!
Gah. I can’t believe I have some of this left.
It lost a lot of flavour pretty quick but I don’t have it often so much anymore. I maxed out on it and then left it alone for awhile… shouldn’t have done that. Oh well.
My last few cups were very meh, but today was better. I let it sit a lot longer. Still nowhere near where it was.
One day I’ll order more, if the company is still around!
On to life things…
UGH what a craptastic week. Drama at work. Multiple dramas with the family. Then a family funeral (not related to drama!) oh and OT at work. Just one of those weeks. and now I’m at home catching up on things that need doing. So you could say I’m a little weary, to say the least. and sad. Glad I’m hanging with the boy tonight.
(oh and the person who passed was 90yrs old, the grandmother of the family who befriended mine when Mum first came to the country, and helped through tough times. So not blood, but still family… yet not someone I knew well, or saw much of myself. Kindof an odd situation)
Ugh. So apparently this tea does not age well. I’ve had it for almost two years now, to be fair. I really enjoy it but don’t have it often enough… so this 70g tin has lasted a rater long time. and a lot of the flavours are really faded. Looks like I’ll have to refill half the tin. I just hope it never gets retired!!!
Oh yes. So perfect.
Was feeling quite ick with a headache so I made this one and a matcha to have with my tylenol and cupcake! The whole combo really seemed to do the trick. I feel some residual tension hanging around, but nothing really compared to earlier.
I’m so glad I have this comfort tea around.
I’m finally at a place where even though my consumption is hugely down, I don’t feel compelled to buy more! probably a phase heh.
I think now I can focus on drinking some teas down to a point where I feel I can actually justify a new purchase instead of feeling guilty for it. Perhaps that’s because fewer cups make me appreciate the ones that I do have that much more? Either way, this is a good place!
As for my Special Dark, I will cry when this one is gone…
