I had aimed for 3g:300mL. For some reason today there’s a sense of haste within. I mean, I know why: the woes of womanhood and an ear infection on the mend have left me lazy and unaccomplished on my days off. I finally emerged from my cave and made breakfast and tea before the clock struck Finite Noon, that demarcation in the day where if I had not yet shuffled, the entire day might have been lost to frump. I looked at the kettle and deemed the water level ‘enough’ but once poured, it ended up being only 200mL. No fear! Thick and glassy, juicy with beautiful layered astringency that leaves my mouth watering. Just beautiful and clean! Malty-tangy straw-salt and autumn leaf-tamarind, toasted almond, spicy earth, tea rose-geranium-lemongrass floral, delicate red grape aftertaste. Cool, relaxed. Relaxed? Ah yes. Now off to get bloodwork.

Owwie (ear infection). Feel better soon, Derk!

My ear had an intimate encounter with a q-tip. Lesson learned. I’m fine, thanks for your well wishes.

Hope you feel better soon!

Glad all is well. A few years ago, I had to take myself to Urgent Care because the cotton end of a q-tip got ‘lost’ in my ear. : (

Good luck with getting that cleared up. Filling up with Ruby Gold sounds like a nice start whatever time of the day.
