so yes, i mentioned yesterday that i had a tea log organization project going on. and last night i deleted over 150 tea logs that had no notes. i’m sure there are more to delete too. but before i can, i have about 30 teas that i need to drink again and write proper notes for first. …….. i know who am i kidding?! i don’t write proper notes or reviews!! i mean seriously, looking through my log last night, my reviews range mostly from posting someone else’s poetry, to nerding out on tv or fan fic, to complaining about the weather, and then maybe saying the tea has coconut in it. ….my most verbose reviews are really just me flirting with the fictional character the tea is named after.
i’m so glad the rest of you properly review tea so i can learn from you! …. and also so i can then be lazy about it and constantly indulge my flights of fancy!
i’ve been really into oolongs lately. but was putting off re-trying this tea. something about the orange scent was so strong i’d always think “but where’s the oolong” and put it back on the shelf. but after it’s been brewed it’s not so bam-in-your-face. to me, it IS however more orange than caramel and creme . in fact i can tell the creme is there but i think the caramel has left the building with this cup.
i like it but i’m probably not going to buy this again. i have about two more cups left to decide.
a song by The XX has been in my head for days
You’ve applied the pressure
To have me crystallized
And you’ve got the faith
That I could bring paradise
I’ll forgive and forget
Before I’m paralyzed
Do I have to keep up the pace
To keep you satisfied
Glaciers have melted to the sea
(Things have gotten closer to the sun)
I wish the tide would take me over
(And I’ve done things in small doses)
I’ve been down onto my knees
(So don’t think that I’m pushing you away)
And you just keep on getting closer
(When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest)
