103 Tasting Notes
My first steeping for today. This resteeping thing is great for this tea I’m afraid to run out of. Thanks, Steepster denizens!
I’m still sick and it makes me feel like a loser. Blah. Especially since I go to work sick since I can’t afford to take two weeks off every time I get hit with a cold or allergies. Everyone hates me in the office anyway, what does it matter? Goodness, my job is an existential crisis.
No notes yet. Add one?
It’s cold and Tuesday and I am sick AGAIN, and while I usually have oolong on yoga days, I don’t have any with me, so I’ll just say this lemony gunpowder is saving my life rt now. So much love. For this tea only. Hate for everything else.
Watched new Teen Wolf ep on streaming last night and it actually worked, but now I’m initiated in the whole after-show thing (of which this show has TWO) and I don’t like it when TV tries to be the internet.
I’ll try to re-steep this tea in an hour maybe? I didn’t know you could re-steep greens at all.
The infamous floor tea that I dropped all over the kitchen but now drink for lunch. Floor tea smells like roses!
It’s Monday so I’m listening to Slate Culture Gabfest podcasts, which are a thing of joy, and I just saw like 25 movies since Christmas so I actually know what they’re talking about. I keep thinking I’ll stop, but Netflix won’t watch itself, ppl.
I am not drinking this right now, but I had it Saturday morning before an outdoors run… yes, outdoors run in 20-something degrees. It was an experiment in motivation. Very excited to try this one, since I know it’s expensive and Harney. It was nice, but I wish it had been more memorable. I was probably sleepy!
Right now I’m listening to a funky Groovement.co.uk music podcast and trying to do some work, but really I just want to be doing anything else (so I’m mostly having Sterek daydreams and thinking about Amy Adams’ wardrobe from American Hustle I saw yesterday).
Assam, nice. Finishing off my tea biscuits. Wish I was going to a yoga retreat instead of spending all weekend in the house, but it’s definitely nice to have heat at home this year, and I can run, and read in my room, and go to the free museum, and do other people avoidance things. Plus, more Sherlock!
LOVE this. Chinese black tea and roses? Two of my very favorite things. Plain Chinese black tea is perfect. And I need something strong to balance out the 5 cups of coffee I drank yesterday while waiting for my biscuits and gravy. I managed to eat Chinese food and go to the cafe, and lots of beer, but no running.
Watched new Sherlock episode last night before bed, so couldn’t drink John Watson tea at the time, but while I very much want to daydream about Sherlock today, it’s hard to not think about Teen Wolf. Maybe by the end of the day I’ll come up with some truly awful Sherlock/TeWo crossover fic idea from hell. Maybe just werewolf!John, which is already a thing.
Gorgeous silver tips! Really nice. Of course I love Harney earl grey anything.
I am really disliking the holidays this year. I wanted to go see Nadastrom in DC tonight, but even thinking about driving to DC is giving me a headache. So I’m going to drink beer? That I won’t spend too much money on? (not likely) But tomorrow is running, the free fine arts museum, my favorite cafe, and new Sherlock. Fanfic on my Kindle. I can’t complain about that. May next year bring the rebirth my yoga teacher keeps talking about hahaha.
