So I was sipping a cup of tea this morning and somehow managed to drop my iPhone straight into my cup, speaker end first. For now, it has been turned off and placed on top of the heater to dry. Hopefully, it will still work okay. It does smell pretty tasty right now, at least.

Anyway, this tea! I’m a sucker for any tea that naturally has honey notes. Usually, they come in the form of oolong. A black tea with honey notes sounded super interesting. And I’m just delving into the world of black teas too! I do taste sweet apricot honey notes in this tea, but it is not as prominent as I had hoped. It’s also a bit chocolatey, but not very much. Overall, it has all the qualities that I enjoy in tea, but in small amounts. I suppose one might say that it is well balanced and subtly tasty. There is no astringency nor bitterness. It’s a very good tea, but not outstanding. I’d drink it again without hesitation. :D

Nik

Oh no! I hope your phone survives the ordeal!

Ysaurella

Does the Iphone share the same opinion about the tea ? ;)
hope it works !

Mercuryhime Hopefully the phone hates the tea and spits it all out. :)

Can always try putting your phone into rice….the rice absorbs the water out of the phone. I have a number of friends who have done this when the phone totally wasn’t working and were able to rescue the phone this way

Anyone here watch Elementary? that rice trick was in one of the eps!

Mercuryhime

rice trick was unnecessary. Phone works like normal. Yay!

Sil

Yay! So glad to hear that

Nik

Whew, thank goodness for that. I had a similar experience, one time…

One day, I came home and took off my outside clothes and prepared a load of laundry. I started the wash and then had to make a phone call, but couldn’t find my phone. I wasn’t worried—I’m quite absent-minded and this happens frequently. I used the Find my phone application to locate it. The loud beeping enabled me to quickly locate it…inside the running washing machine. =( I hurriedly paused the wash and took out the phone. It worked for a few seconds and died. I tried all the tricks Google gave me for the next 8 days or so, to no avail. Finally, I made an appointment at the Apple store. They asked me what happened and I told them honestly that I had accidentally laundered it. After they stopped laughing, they gave me a new phone, in spite of the fact that water damage isn’t covered by AppleCare. So, I got a happy ending and a good story out of the experience (and a new phone). =) It still makes me laugh to think of the look on my face when I realised the beeping was coming from inside the washing machine.

Welcome to Day 2 of Little Terri’s Sipdown Extravaganza!
(Sil & Cavo, I know you are both laughing at me, but THIS is for REAL!)

First Sipdown of the day is this Sweet Honey Black, which I acquired in a wonderful trade awhile back with TastyBrew, thanks!

This really is lovely tea, & although it lacks a bold bass note, & gratefully there is no crazy high end, it is very full & rich through the middle, kind of like a Keemun. However, in my opinion the taste is nothing like a Keemun, but more like a refined leafhopper black, like Mi Xian. It is sweet, honeyesque, with a fruity apricot taste & the smallest hint of coriander. A really pleasant cup!

“…lacks a bold bass note.” I love that. You WOULD use musical terms to describe tea.

Terri HarpLady

How could I not? I’m the weirdo who can hear tiny bells playing in running water & other crazy phenomenon that nobody else seems to hear or know about…sigh… :)

Did you two have to be put in separate rooms a lot? ;) My siblings are 11 and 14 years older than me so I never really had the full in-house experience.

Terri HarpLady

Georgie Girl, (sorry, I just love calling you that now) I’m the middle child, with 2 older brothers & 2 younger sisters. For most of my childhood I shared a room with my sisters, who are 4 & 6 years younger than me. Occasionally I had my own room, & because I played the piano so much, for awhile the piano was actually in my bedroom, LOL.

gmathis

Not a bad roommate! :)

Terri HarpLady

Having the piano in my bedroom was awesome, since I’ve always been a bit of a loner, & as a child was very happy to be left alone to play the piano indefinitely. With the Piano in the living room the other family members got tired of Beethoven & such, wanted to watch TV, etc. Sadly, the piano in my bedroom didn’t last as long as I’d like, but it ended up in the dining room for awhile, & that was also pretty good :)

Tea of the morning… (SRP #45)

Leaves are large and loosely packed due to their size and very dark brown. The tea brews up a little lighter than I expected. Not a very red brew, but somewhere more caramel in color. Resteeps well which does help offset the cost a little. Definite notes of honey, but much lower on the cocoa notes that I usually search for on this type of tea. I don’t get as much of a complexity that I would need from a tea in this price range (just over $17 for 80 grams). I would choose Imperial Golden Monkey for a similar flavor profile from Upton at a slightly better price.

Usual teapot method at 4 minutes. Resteep at 5.

A very mild sweet tea with slight floral and slight resin fragrances. A nice tea for the morning but no substitute for the rich cocoa tastes and fragrances of my favorite teas.

This is a lovely black brew with twisty little dark leaves. When I smell the brewed leaves a hint of spiced orange and apricot come through. I think this is very comparable to a golden monkey or similar Fujian black tea though this is from Anhui. Its not as deep as my favorite Keemun or as complex as my favorite Darjeeling, but still quite tasty. There is a whiff of smokiness that is worked with the sweet honey notes and a bit of astringency at the front of the notes.
