drank English Breakfast by Twinings
1305 tasting notes

I feel like calling winter into my office at 3:45 on a Friday and telling it to find another job. Church was cancelled today because of black ice. I had a suspicion last night when it started misting on the windshield. So I declared it a house pants day for all of an hour before they started bugging me and I had to find actual clothes. I can’t believe it either. So now I have decided its Cheapster Steepster Sunday. At least till it starts bugging me. Starting with this tea bag sip down. I used to really be apathetic toward EB. I used to call it beige. Not bad just never remember what I just sipped. This one has actually grown on me. It is smooth, malty, and comfortable. Sometimes that is enough.

Yeah, K S, Lets do this Trump style: Winter, YOU’RE FIRED!!

Indeed ‘tis. I was at a friend’s house, and he apologised for only having Yorkshire Tea in because I’m known as the Brewmaster and all, but, like, sometimes you just want a simple cuppa!

K S

Yes! Or a gentler approach: I’m sorry winter, you have been eliminated. Please go back to your workspace and pack your kit. Not sure if that is my Heidi Klum or McKenzie Westmore interpretation.

Sami Kelsh – I love that you have friends who understand your love of tea enough they think they have to apologize for their commoner approach. I also love that you have not lost the appeal of a simple cuppa!

TheTeaFairy

Yes K S, I can totally picture you doing a perfect impression of Heidi Klum, lol.
And I so agree with your comment about what Sami said…some common teas are like old friends are they not?

My mother will pretty much only drink her supermarket’s own brand Earl Grey. If she’s visiting company, she’ll bring a little bag of tea with her.

(To be fair, I’m out of town for 5 days coming up, and I plan to bring enough tea to keep me going)

Also, please do make winter stop – I’m trying to bake bread and my flat’s so cold that the dough won’t prove! :(

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
