741 Tasting Notes
never would have expected to like this one more than the American Tea Room Apricot but hell, i just do. i will consider buying a small tin of this in the spring. i’m even adding it to my shopping list as a reminder, and heck i rarely do that.
it’s not like amazing or anything, but i could easily see myself chugging a cup on a regular basis when the sun is out. know what i mean :)
I’m attending a potluck tonight and I’m bringing donuts and tea. I just spent a good hr organizing my tea and then deciding what to bring and packing it up.
I watched ‘please vote for me’ and ‘waiting for Armageddon’, two documentaries. And now I started ‘roman holiday’ but I think I’m gonna finish it later.
If I focus and stay determined, I will be able to reach 600 different teas tasted by the end of tomorrow. I think that’s a nice goal. Fun to try at least. :)
This tea is not really my thing. I’m not a green lover and not a fan of cinnamon and though the description doesn’t say cinnamon it’s the scent and flavor that I’m getting most. It overrides the ginger and orange for me. Too bad.
The beginning of Roman Holiday is real cute btw.
And Gregory Peck is a total hunk.
another sample from the dammann advent calendar.
i’m watching Leviathan now. it’s an experimental film so it’s not for everyone.
it is an unedited and raw and crystalized visual window into time spent of an industrial fishing boat in the middle of the ocean.
but it is making me think about so many things i never would think of otherwise! so good!
often times the ocean sounds just like contemporary orchestral music. and the life of everything just keeps pushing on.
i took this from wikipedia but i think it says a lot about the film in a good way
…the film “plunges us into the sights and sounds of this visceral business”, … raw images and natural sounds. Edited together into a non-linear and virtually wordless whole, it creates a briny immersive effect that is almost hallucinatory." … the film “conveys the brutal toll that the enterprise takes on the workers and on the ocean, …the sea threatens to exact its revenge on humanity. … avoids exposition and context, unfolds almost entirely in the dark and often verges on hallucinatory abstraction. Where most documentaries prize clarity, this one attests to the power of estrangement.”
estrangement! that’s why i’m having such an experience. it’s definitely my style.
at home floating and alone. or also like Frances Ha said “I like things that look like mistakes”.
unfortunately, now i have a lot of ‘tea homework’ because i’ve been drinking tons of new teas but haven’t been properly logging many of them.
i bought a box of this from the health food store.
if you ask me, no other herbal tea can compare to the relaxing qualities of tulsi.
i hope i always have a box of this in my cupboard. always.
