So! My alernator died in my car Wednesday (which was just a horrible day for me in general, but this was kind of the cherry on top). I had just finished up a really awful consulting job that ended up taking far longer than it needed too because of repeated hang ups, and I stopped at my parents’ house. My dad’s on business, so it was just my mom and the dogs and almost 9 pm, so I left after maybe 60-90 minutes.
I get in my car and it seems to start okay, and I get about 2 miles from my house and everything just goes south. First my ABS brakes disable, and at this point I’m like. ‘Well. That sucks.’ Then my dash lights start dimming just little by little. Then my airbags disable and my air conditioning flips off. Then the radio. And at this point I’m not quite panicking, but I am bargaining with my car. “Rememeber all the fun drives we’ve had together? Just a little further, baby.” “I’ll get you that fancy oil you wanted if you get me home. I know you can do it.” Then the headlights just die. From there I’m driving down a county highway, no headlights, keeping my fingers crossed I both don’t get pulled over, and make it home.
I didn’t realise I was holding my breath until I was parked and the car was off. Needless to say, it won’t start now.
I’ve been on an iced tea kick since Wednesday now for whatever reason. I probably have about six thermoses lined up in my fridge right now. It’s pretty awesome.
So, backlogging from yesterday.
I finished off the sample shmiracles sent me of this as a cold brew. And I think I like it better this way. I added a few points onto the score, as well, because I didn’t expect to enjoy this cup as much as I did
I really liked how strongly the vanilla and cream came though. It had a definitely vanilla flavor with almost a milky-flavor quality. The blackberry is really syrupy and it didn’t need any sweetener.
I could definitely see myself picking this up down the road.
