No real tasting notes today since i’m still not sure my tastebuds are back to normal. I tried this one today since i figured maybe a hearty bold tea would cut through things. That seems to have worked as this seems like a really nice tea. soooo yay for getting to drink a few things today!
Soooo..let’s talk about stress..and pms and being in a foreign country when over tired and reacting to the pollution. It’s called, dinner is made up of some chips, a cheese bagel and z-up followed by chocolate and sugar donut and yes..this tea. And a bath. And god damnit that’s what’s what.
lol But let me tell you…nothing in this world is better than that donut and chocolate and tea when you’re enjoying it. I’ll pay for it later i’m sure but tonight i needed anything but noodles or rice or beef or lamb or fried anything. Also it doesn’t help that i had a bunch of work to do tonight before my evening call with toronto. So i didn’t really have a chance to go to a sit down restaurant.
And this tea? While not something i drink often in toronto, was just what the doctor ordered tonight. Maybe it bonded with the water better than back home but it was just a creamy delicious cup of toffee and dark brood-y tea. So good.
This morning seems so long ago. I had this before heading to the office. A lot of crap is coming up in the last few days of me being here so i am NOT a happy camper. It looks like i probably wont get a chance to get out and see/explore any more of beijing at this rate. :( At least this was a tasty treat to have this morning to jump start my day. Bold tea with a bit of caramel goodness.
This was a little bitter today, or at least had a bit of bitterness behind the tasty caramelness of the tea. I may have steeped this a bit long though since it was at work and I was distracted. Still a decent blend and something that i’m going to enjoy figuring out how to best brew.
