804 Tasting Notes
I love oolong tea. It’s a favorite when I know I’m going to have a period of time in a given place for many resteeps. I know I am up and about the house a lot these days, but I’m in the same house, so I gave this a go (and filled a thermos with hot water so I’d have it at the ready whenever it was time to resteep). The verdict: life is too complicated for oolong right now. I had a (4 oz) cup and a half of this before being wrapped up in so many other things that I forgot I had it, so I think it’ll wait until I’m back in the office.
We have roofers working on the house today (not the greatest timing, but we’re glad to be getting a new roof). It’s LOUD upstairs, so I moved my nest downstairs. Since I’m out of the bedroom, I’m feeling a bit more energetic, so I made a small pot of Brattle Street Blend. And now I’m thinking if I can fit a pot of something into the day each day, I might feel a bit more like myself (still sleep deprived, just a bit more with it). :)
Since the last time I logged into Steepster, we welcomed Leif into the world!!! (pronounced Layf) It was a surprise cesarian section, so I have been spending a lot of the time in the bed with Leif in my arms. I haven’t been able to make it downstairs to make tea yet. But on several occasions my husband has surprised me with a cup of this, always announcing how long it’s been steeping when he hands it off to me. So now I suspect I’ll always associate this lovely tea with this lovely period of my life. :)
