Verdant needs a mobile friendly website. My bag had zero steeping instructions on it, so I tried to pull the site up on my phone, since it was in the kitchen to time the steeping…but it kept crashing my browser. So I had to hurry back to my bedroom and pull up the site and find what to do. I wrote the instructions on the package so I guess I’ll probably go through my others so this won’t happen again. I cut it close!
I’m going to get started re-watching The Walking Dead since I kind of stopped after the first season. I feel some weird obligation to watch everything filmed around here for the most part (I have to throw that disclaimer in because I would rather lick a battery than have anything to do with Scary Movie 5, as this brought in BOTH Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan.) but I did enjoy it so time to retry, yay Netflix!
I can probably tell you all sorts of places it filmed though! Like this! This is Forsyth Street, right near important to me school buildings! http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbnkjbS0yU1qz5e5oo1_1280.png They’re mostly well outside Atlanta, which is where all the TV shows end up, but in the first episode they were on my campus! This happened too in The Change Up. The first time I saw a trailer I was like WAIT I WALK THROUGH THERE ALL THE TIME. It’s kind of fun.
So this is my pot of tea to go along with it and a plan to resteep as much as possible through the night!
I’m terrible at keeping track of things but I’ve had this for awhile so I don’t know what description where applies to this tea anymore. I bought it in April. Wow, that’s embarrassing
that I’m just now getting around to trying it. Jeez.
This first steeping smells purely of chocolate. It tastes like a malty cinnamon brownie. It’s rich and satisfying. It’s not as cold today but this feels good to drink!
I’m amused that this tastes more like a cinnamon brownie than the tea I have that’s supposed to be one. Ha. There are some caramel notes too but mostly I get chocolate with a nice hint of cinnamon.
The second steep is getting kind of a toasted cereal flavor, but still chocolatey. This actually reminds me a lot of a dark oolong and I really am not a fan of many of them, but I am enjoying this tea. What do you call that chocolatey hot cereal stuff? CoCo Wheats? That’s what it reminds me of!
This will probably be it for the time being, because I want to sleep tonight. I’ll have to try it in a gaiwan next.
