From Adagio Teas

Decidedly kooky and full of life, Iris Wildthyme knows how to have fun. A light, albeit somewhat scatterbrained cuppa tea, with aromatic botanical notes reminiscent of a really good g&t, a whisper of your auntie’s perfume, and rainbow sprinkles, because good ol’ Auntie Iris is just that fabulous, luvvie. (And makes an excellent mixer if you fancied adding something a little stronger at teatime.)

I’m posting less frequently than I ought to be largely because I AM ATTEMPTING TO MOVE TO OXFORD and man, it is stressful. I mean, I’m IN Oxford, but most of my stuff is still up in Manchester, and I have to end my lease up there and get into a place here and it’s so stressful aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa tries not to cry But hey, I’m waking up at 5 in the morning to make bagels all day, so it could be worse. I’ve got a massive backlog of teas to note, so will attempt to, like, get back to posting normal, I promise.

But first, Iris, which is decidedly not normal at all. She’s a pretty ridiculous blend, actually. Even without the sprinkles, the colours of this tea are joyous: the leaves are a rainbow of orange and red and green and pink and blue, and a myriad of shapes and sizes. And then, to top it all off, RAINBOW SPRINKLES. The fragrance hits you as loudly as the colours do, a sharp and bold hit of citrus and pine: stick with it a moment longer, and notes of aniseed and rose waltz in with all the air of your tipsy auntie. When brewed, it’s as good dry as it is sweet, so take it as you’d take your gin. Sugar brings out the subtle aniseed notes that follow the bergamot that anchors the blend, while whispers of rose lend a soft roundness to the blend’s lively mouthfeel. It tastes like a crisp, complex mix of botanicals that positively demands to be made into a cocktail. I like to think that dear Auntie Iris would most definitely approve.

Sympathise! When I arrived in Dublin in the height of the Celtic Tiger, we still had no place to nlive despite looking online through the wonderful
http://www.daft.ie/dublin/houses-to-rent/ and other sites for months ( to be honest I could probably of taken a place myself, but I had agreed to live with two others and they wanted such luxuries as a second bath etc.). The company I worked for agreed to put us up in a hotel for two days, but short term accommodation was rediculously expensive and the real estate market was insane. We ended up finding a place through a general add I placed on daft. We really lucked out. Our lanlord kept all the bills in his name so we didn’t have to set anything up for our 4 month rental and he treated us like gold. Though we did find out about such things as the TV tax etc. Hope you have good luck with your real estate issues.
