Another morning of -10 temps, but with wind chill it brings the temperature down to -30.
My poor hubby is already out in it, but he told me to not come out till later, and then only if he really needed my help.
He told me to stay warm and drink tea.
Yes, Sir!
I grabbed this Assam because it’s a Assam kind of morning.
While it is brewing, I am inhaling it.
Yup, its Assam.
Malty and leathery.
Taste is, well, assam-y!
Ha! nicely malty and a little drying at the back of tongue.
Its not a bruiser of a Assam, but it is certainly a Assam.
Delicious!

…and here I am whinging and whimpering at 20 degrees. You are braver and hardier than I am! (Couldn’t dream of drinking anything less stout than an Assam in weather like that!)

I started to get excited because we are getting temps in the upper teens by Sunday then I found out thats just so a 3 day blizzard can come through.
Oh, well, I guess I will just have to stay trapped in my house with nothing to do but drink tea;)

TheTeaFairy

I can relate Hesper! Nothing but snow and freezing temperature around here in the Laurentians! But it’s ok, good strong tea and good husband will keep us warm :-)

Hesper June

Yep! Those are the things that get me through the winter, tea and cuddling with my cute hubby and my doggies and kitties too:)

TheTeaFairy

Ho! I also got a few of those!! Cuddling living stuffed animals that is, not husbands, one is plenty! Big doggy and a few kitties, just adore them :-)

Hesper June

Haha! yes, one husband is plenty:) Yes, I adore my “furry kids”! They are all rescues. We have three dogs and three cats and one very fur filled vacuum.

TheTeaFairy

I always have a soft spot for rescuers :-) Mine are also rescues, except for the Dobberman, he was initially adopted for his guardian skills ( we were robbed twice in a short period and we live in a remote area) but he quickly became the biggest «mookiepoo» of them all! The woods in my backyards bring all kinds of animals in needs, I try to help the best I can by feeding and treating them if necessary. My husband helps a lot, I think he must have been a vet in a previous life!

Hesper June

Oh! thats terrible about you being robbed!
We try to help out all the animals even wild ones too, right now, I have been trying to help the poor little wild birds deal with the bitter cold.

Yesssss 200 degrees makes Assam so good. Four minutes and 200 degree water, so sweet and tasty! Every other Assam I’ve had so far, I’ve had to only steep it for 3 minutes, add milk, or wait for it to cool way down. This is life changing.

So this is sweet, and malty, and actually helping me to wake up with its big burst of flavor. I am finishing it then for some reason going to Target, mostly because I got a stamping kit for my nails yesterday and really want to use it…but I only brought one bottle of nail polish with me. Oh well.

It was 23 here but wind chill was wicked bitter cold. I HATE WINTER!

I was gonna say, “Noooooo! Stay outta the malls!” until I remembered you’re in the US and safe from Boxing Day madness. :)

My tea-taster appears to be back to normal. After my first cup yesterday everything was just tasting bitter and bad. I gave up on tea for the rest of the day. This tea surprised me a little. It is assam-y in all the good ways. The aroma is very malty. On tasting, it is not quite as malty as the smell led me to believe, but it is there and this also has a nice sweetness to it. Very easy to drink. I was expecting it to be a little more “brisk” than I normally like, but it walks right up to the edge of that and stays politely on the yummy side with little astringency. I think of it as bright. This would be a perfect afternoon tea.
