1350 tasting notes

Having a bit of a crap day, including trying to decide if I need to call the cops or not, and I definitely needed something to wake me up and be soothing. This fit the bill beautifully. It’s smooth and not bitter at all. I only let it steep for 2 minutes and I’m in heaven. The vanilla and caramel and grenadine are all very present…I am very happy with this tea! Yay Tealish! You didn’t ruin this with hibiscus!

Yeah, we’re okay, just running in to some issues with (violent) former tenants coming on to our property and going through our mail. We’re trying to decide if it’s worth the hassle or not, as the police around here tend to be less than helpful. Where’s a mountie when you need one? :D

Complaints on record might not be effective, but good to have. Might not have results right now, but a history of any/all issues is important.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
