739 Tasting Notes
well my dammann order arrived yesterday so here i am jumping in!
i don’t love cinnamon in my tea, so i knew this wasn’t gonna be a fave, but i was still VERY surprised by how much i liked it. yay win!
if you love movies then watch this.
just do it.
the university where i work is closed until January 2nd.
my goal is to watch 1 documentary and 1 film i haven’t seen from the list in the video link every day.
today i watched 2 documentaries, (A)sexual and Blackfish.
and i currently started the film Post Tenebras Lux.
though it might be too late for it and i might watch an episode from The Top of the Lake instead.
my documentary options feel a little aimless, so if anyone would like to recommend a few i’d love the guidance! :)
definitely stewed apricots yum.
i have plans to go running tomorrow. haven’t run in weeks so it’s gonna be interesting.
i also have a massage scheduled for breakfast hah
now i will embarrass my sister and ask you all to friend her!
cuz i’d love to see her on steepster more http://steepster.com/oddree/
what a yummy tea. i just finished off my blood orange puerh and this is a great variation on the theme. the scent is kapow. and the flavor is a robust smokey dusky orange. like wet winter earth. it stands out. and i like any tea that has enough personality to stand out.
if you are feeling insane, and want to stay feeling insane, here is a ridiculous holiday themed dj mix to enjoy!!
i find the DJ Snake “Bird Machine [Jingle Bells Version]” song especially nutty.
and i feel that this kind of music does a lot to push oneself from a state of over-caffeinated glee over the tipping point and into a hyper crazed freak out!!!
my least favorite American Tea Room tea i’ve tried so far. but i still like it okay. i think it’s just not my thing is all. i’ve kinda been on a rose overload lately.
i’ll give it a rest and taste it again in a week or so.
now hey look!
my tea from Dammann arrived.
nicely done post office. nicely done.
the scent of this tea is strong kapow!
and yum and so lemon bright!
i don’t drink a ton of green tea but it’s always good to have a tasty reliable few styles around so i’m really glad i got a 4 oz tin and not just a sample.
my sister kinda picked it out and i said Yes cuz i enjoy gunpowder. i’ll look forward to drinking this in the mornings. wake up my taste buds!!
i like this tea. i’ll easily drink up the sample i bought. i tried this a second time this morning but was running late and kinda had to chug 2/3rds of the mug. i would be bummed about that but 1. i have so much tea that it’s okay to chug if i must and 2. this is a yummy tea but not a style that would be a fave of mine. (reluctant as i am to admit it)
maybe my next cup i’ll add a bit of agave and almond milk.
i haven’t tried this tea yet, but i wanted to document that this morning marks the very first time that a new full tin of tea was spilled all over the floor.
I CAN’T BELIEVE IT DIDN’T HAPPEN SOONER we both said as we started to clean up.
we figured what with all the early morning groggy tea making this should have happened well over a year ago.
don’t worry, half the tin was still very full and the oz we did lose was actually scooped up and we may still steep it. i mean, it is boiling water after all. and i ate a donut after dropping it on the floor just a few days ago. so eh.
