You know that wonderful feeling you get when you’ve finally struck pay-dirt and figured out the perfect brewing parameters for a given tea? And then you try it again and follow the same steps and it actually tastes the same? Perfect feeling. I’ve figured out that for this tea, I need one of David’s teaspoons, as well as one of Teavana’s teaspoons, some cream and rock sugar, and my timolino. It is warming, with lots of ginger and cloves, and the cream thickens it up nicely and really gives the whole thing a very bready feel. I’m definitely going to have to stock up on this next time I’m at David’s.
And somehow I placed an order with the tea merchant (for French earl grey and biodynamic Darjeeling) and barely realized I was doing it! Next thing I knew, there was a confirmation email in my inbox and I was like “huh? how’d this get here?” I think I was feeling a bit idle and listless at work, and well..I suppose we all know what happens when I’m like that now right?
Ok, work day over in a few hours, then achingly long seminar, and then finally, thankfully, I get to go home. I’ve been dreading the length of this day since last week!
