this weather tea is very tasty!

i’m feeling very dry in the sinus and throat and it has a tonic vibe i really need today.

thank you nightvale.

right on cara mcgee. [twohandhighfive]
this tea has bracing notes of a stale coffee flavor and smells like the breeze cast off a used ashtray.
in the best way of course.
i’m really digging it.
i’m sure anybody else who likes toasted mate likes it for this reason.
it’s sometimes like a mouth of dirt. juicy dirt.
(ya know, the same way green tea can taste like damp grass)
anyways,
maybe i’ll get a chance to listen to an episode or two of this podcast today.
i’m up to episode 6.

Oh, that’s awesome that you are listening to it! I think the Sandstorm is my favourite, but you’re a ways away from that.

I think I stopped listening around episode 6 or 7…

oh gawd guise i’ve been so MIA!

i’ve been setting up my standing desks at home and work and restructuring my entire life from the ground up in slow motion.
it takes a long time.
(and swappers, hi, ya you, i swear i’m putting your boxes together tonight. i swearit.)

i drank this tea on sunday as my roommates and i embarked on a house cleaning day.
cleaning day went awesomely but this tea was kinda lame. just flat.
but i’m glad to see so many other people got a kick out of it!
cuz if nothing else, tea should be fun :)
CAN DEEEEE!

thanks to Eva for swapping this with me so i could try it!

hey i think i’m improving my blending abilities! either that or i got lucky :)
either way, i still kinda win.
this current blend is blackberry, caramel, and mocha nut mate with cornflowers added.
i hope to add cocoa nibs to the next batch i think?

you don’t have to really know what i’m talking about here. this is just me trying to parse out what taste profile i’m going for and then trying to judge if i’ve come even a little close.

i was going for a dark earthen tea base with a kind of unsettled sweetness incorporated? i figured the mate would add a rougher kind of masculine note and the dark berries and caramel could help create a slightly salty yet decadent tone. the tea basically needs to be sensual and intense and troubled and sad. comforting but still very very sad. and i wasn’t aiming for it, but the mate definitely has a sort of riding crop flavor-tone to it.
so beautiful it hurts and so stinging it’s beautiful. i’ll keep drinking this bag, get to know this version better, make some changes and then see what else i learn.
