57 Tasting Notes
It’s a grumpy cat kinda day!
Here are romantic dubstep mixes: http://luvstep.com/
I am over it, ppl. I miss hanging out with teenagers. I want to do yoga on the beach.
I had this yesterday and didn’t review it. I’m really new to mate, meaning I am not sure if I’ve had it before? But yesterday was a rough day – I stayed up really late to watch the True Detective finale after HBOgo crashed and I had to use other methods – and then I had a 2-hour insurance class about statistics and I thought I was going to puke or die. Or maybe just pass out asleep. Bad associations with mate.
But hey, here’s a fic i read at lunch while sitting on the porch in the sun: http://archiveofourown.org/works/574904
It’s set in a diner. Which is like happiness catnip to me. Lonely diners. It’s a thing.
I had a pot’s worth of a free sample this weekend, and I’ve had it before, but it was SO NICE. So nice. I’m reminded of all my favorite black teas I should try to have around, and a jasmine, genmaitcha, oolong, ginger/lemon. Basically, what do I want in my tea cabinet? A nice orange pekoe too. Some sugar cubes. Simple, with some pure tea flavors (and flowers).
I was going to have Derek Hale tea, because my mind has been very Derek-focused this week, but then I forgot to have afternoon tea at all and decided to settle on Feral Dogs, because it was appropriately doggy (sorry, Derek – don’t grumpy face me). It’s pretty golden colored like my favorite IPAs, and spicy and warm. Very nice. Though I’m still disappointed there was no floating interdimensional bathroom kitty tea in this set.
I didn’t like the first sip of this tea, but it’s def growing on me the more I slowly drink this cup. I barely taste the ginger, and the grapefruit, which I wished was kind of punching me in the face instead.
I tried a new experiment today and went grocery shopping at lunch and got a sushi roll. It’s sunny outside, though really windy, so it’s a nice day to sit in a car and eat a sushi roll. My day is boring – I watched scary HBO docs last night before bed and I think I had nightmares AND daymares. Those things are so addictive though. Happy MOONDAY! at least, holy crap.
Oh, Perfect Carlos… you are part of the first canonical slash pairing I know of. Also, an oxymoron.
I was just saying this morning how I’m not a fan of chocolate or vanilla teas, but the chocolate chips in this one looked so yummy. But yeah, kind of meh, because choco vanilla teas aren’t my thing.
I started reading this at lunch. Looking forward to finishing it later! http://archiveofourown.org/works/1035300
I thought this tea would be appropriate for my people paranoia this week. Total overload, seriously – all the hot sake I drank with dinner couldn’t help that much. It’s only Kindle fics and conspiracy theory rewatches of True Detective, folks, that is keeping away the vomity migraines that threaten to engulf.
Oh all the feels. I’m thinking I need this tea next: http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=24587
Oh right! The tea I’m actually drinking… Very creamy earl grey is creamy. Shmiracles mentioned earl grey moonlight to me the other day, and I’ve probably had it with other Adagio teas, but now I’m actually paying attention. I prefer my earl grey more sweet, less cream, but I’m very much not picky about earl greys. Hmm, I haven’t had a duchess earl in awhile…
This is a nice, light green tea with very faint floral and fruity notes, but is overall very subtle.
I also have a cold that’s not really going away. Here’s my fic rec of the day: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1183982
It’s always fun, after 16 years of slash fic reading, to come across a kink I’m not quite sure I’ve read before (it’s in the tags)
