Oh this is delicious. This is absolutely what I needed, this afternoon.
Sushi lunch with the standard sushi-house green tea was tasty, but this…this hits the spot.

mj

Haha I am eating sushi as I read this note. It must have been a sushi kind of day.

Spencer

Must have been! Having tea with that?

mj

Naturally :-) Jade Oolong by The Northern Lights Tea Company. I actually shocked myself by wanting something green tea-ish and that’s the closest thing I have other than Moroccan Mint. But mint + sushi? No thanks

mj

Ok, weird question, but I see that you are into fountain pens, inks, and paper. Do you happen to be a forensic document examiner?

Spencer

Mint plus sushi does sound weird. Oolong could be tasty though!

Haha, I am not a forensic document examiner. For that matter, nor do I have the skills for handwriting analysis. I simply enjoy the tactile, analog experience of handwriting, as well as the engineering of fountain pens.

My mom is a forensic document examiner and she restores and collects Sheaffer pens and typewriters. That’s where that weird question came from :)

Spencer

Very cool! I just finished restoring a Sheaffer Balance Slender, myself, though I am quite the amateur at it.

Most of my day was spent working in my office, & I’m please to say my tall file cabinet is done! It feels so good to have finished that project. My recycling bin is overflowing!
Initially while I was working I was drinking gongfu sessions of:
Mengku Pure Old Tree Golden Buds Black (2012) from JK Tea Shop. CharlotteZero shared some with me, & although I don’t really have much to say, it’s because I was busy. But it did bring me joy while I worked, & I love the caramel color of the leaves, which are dense & sturdy, & the tea was delicious. I’m sharing it here because I couldn’t find it on JK’s page, & it is a sipdown.

Next up was this Shu, sent to me from Spencer. I usually give shu’s one rinse, & then taste them. If I don’t care for the first pour, I’ll dump it (that counts as a 2nd rinse).
After the first rinse I can only describe what was in my cup as cream of mushroom soup. It had a strong mushroom taste, & also a buttery taste. I took a few sips, & that had to go.
Next cup: A slightly less pronounce cream of mushroom soup with buttered hominy. Yes, it had a very strong hominy taste. I like hominy, although I no longer eat it, but I don’t really want my tea to taste like that.
Next? This is a rich cup, still with the buttery hominy (think grits), but also a deep taste of leather, woods (cedar?), a growing boldness, mushroom, umami almost like a meaty broth.
I feel the beginning of a camphor type sensation as well.
Next?….
Sipdown! (322)

Yay for file cabinet organization. My totally organized moments are few and far between these days, but man, do they feel good!

Terri HarpLady

They do! You know, I’ve been complaining lately that no matter how much I accomplish, I always feel like I didn’t accomplish enough each day. I don’t feel that way today. It feels so good to have gotten this done!
