drank Lemony Gunpowder by Harney & Sons
101 tasting notes

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.

drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons

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.

drank Big Red Sun by Harney & Sons

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!

Shmiracles

so glad we get a second episode so quickly!
also, i have to confess, i looked up plane tickets to Miami yesterday. i think i have to move to Puerto Rico or Hawaii. it’s the first week of the year and i’m already miserable because of the cold.

oddree

I have a $50 credit with JetBlue from my last Miami trip… They fly into Ft Lauderdale. I see pics from MyCeviche on my FB and WANT. For me, it’s not the cold as much as the total nothingness of anything to look forward to until Spring.

It got down to 10 F in St. Louis, which happens here in the winter sometimes, so for us it’s just a typical winter, a little snow, a little cold. Today it will be 35 or so probably. I really feel for all my Canadian friends, I heard that it was colder than Mars in some parts of Canada yesterday, if you factor in the wind chill.

drank Rose de Chine by American Tea Room
101 tasting notes

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.

Shmiracles

that Sherlock werewolf fic you recommend once was definitely a memorable one.
and i really liked this rose tea too :)
and i DID drink Reichenbach Reunion last night while we watched the new ep. which obviously explains why i was up until 2am and also why i almost overslept today. … so yes you made a good choice ;)

oddree

Yeah, I have more parts of that werewolf!John fic on my kindle to read. I could use 3 more cups of this chinese tea, but I’ll have to try rose scented or lemony gunpowder instead because that’s what I got. My brain is pretty much useless anyway. #doublemonday

oddree

Aww and Blindness (Amtrac remix) just popped up on my phone.

oddree

And I’m eating Kedem Vanilla Tea Biscuits for breakfast.

Shmiracles

you are really making the most of this morning! :)

OMGsrsly

It’s a thing?! Is it an awesome thing that everyone should read?

oddree

It exists! I like coloredink’s werewolf!John fic series – http://archiveofourown.org/series/60907 – and I’m not even a big werewolf fan, I have just found myself in a fandom with actual canon werewolves now, so, um glad to have the experience I guess. Plus who doesn’t love puppy!John and kitty!Sherlock fanarts???

OMGsrsly

cackles Thanks for the link!

Actual Canon Werewolves are better than surprise!werewolves any day. :)

Shmiracles

oh hey!!! this is the werewolf AU i THOUGHT of first http://archiveofourown.org/works/174980
so i guess oddree DIDN’T recommend this one especially because she hasn’t actually read it yet. hah. but it stuck with me which is kinda saying alot because i forget everything hah

OMGsrsly

YES. And I downloaded the Calibre plugin, and also now have GrabMyBooks for Firefox, so I have ALL THE FIC to read.

:D

drank Diamond Jubilee by Harney & Sons

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.

Shmiracles

hahaha that is the best summary. bring it yoga teacher!

drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons

Oh Monday, why? It’s not so bad really, just still recovering from the movies I saw this weekend: Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Sweet Land, Platoon, The Descendants, Museum Hours, Blue is the Warmest Color. The last one alone would have done me in for a few days at least.

Popcorn, shiny balls, itty bitty candy canes, teeny mint trees – this tea is nutso. It’s just a nice minty tea really. I feel like I made this one too weak though.

Happy Friday! I just got a free Fairytale Sprite brownie from the office kitchen. What is this thing??
