drank Mambo by Adagio Teas
186 tasting notes

AAAAAAAAAA THIS DAY HAS BEEN EVEN MORE RIDICUOUS THAN I ALREADY THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. So those high winds I mentioned earlier? Yeah, like gale-force, and meant trains were cancelled, roads were closed, and various other impediments to travel. And I’m taking a train to Heathrow Airport first thing tomorrow morning. Oh hello, panic attack, how much am I not surprised to see you again?

Oh yeah, and I got dumped.

Calmer now, as trains appear like they’ll be up and running by tomorrow morn danced angrily in my kitchen to angry lady hippity hop music for a while and made a cup of mambo.

And it’s a smooth and gentle brew. I’m definitely getting the cocoa notes in the beginning, with a subtle aroma almost reminiscent of apricot. Whoever aid that this tastes of cocoa-dusted peaches isn’t far off. This flows into an earthier, autumn leaf finish. I tend to take my black teas more robust and punchy than this one, but as this is a bit oolong-y as well, it makes for a lovely change of pace.

And this time tomorrow night, I’ll have nearly touched down in sunny Los Angeles, where I expect to be bought strong drinks until I forget that I was ever seeing someone in the first place.

Sorry about the dumping. That’s never fun. You seem to have a great attitude about it though, which is more than I can say about me when I was a young thing. ;-)

Feh. He was too young for me anyways, and it was nice while it lasted. Nothing says “It’s not me, it’s you” quite like “given our lives and priorities, it just wouldn’t have worked anyway” after you’ve met somebody else who probably isn’t as fat as I am.

Me, a young thing? Well, I’ll be. :3
