Finally, I’m back from Easter weekend! Came home to a rejection letter (boo) and finally enough time to sit down and properly taste the teas sent to me by the lovely Sil in our swap!

So, Captain Jack Harkness. If I’m honest, I was expecting something a bit louder, but with a dark undercurrent, and it’s subtle compared to that. But that being considered, it’s tasty! The scent is a full-on boom of chocolate, though I wasn’t surprised this fell away a bit when brewed, looking at the ingredients. I feel like the amount of ceylon in here waters down what could be a more indulgent brew, but the almond in the fragrance gives me a scent that reminds me interestingly of oats and a touch of booze, and then the chocolate comes back in as the predominant flavour. It’s light and lovely, and definitely cries out for milk and sugar to balance it. All things considered, a pleasant brew indeed. It’s not leaping out of the cup and snogging me with flavour, but certainly making my day a little brighter.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Love “snogging with flavor.” ;-) I really miss Captain Jack—I wish they’d do another season of Torchwood. Does the tea make you think of long coats? Sorry about the rejection. :-(

I would have thought it would be a bold tea also. And truly I love his coat. I don’t think i would want another season. I didn’t particularly like Miracle Day and I think the show was so much better with the whole cast. But I do love Captain Jack. Maybe he will show up again in Doctor Who.

It’s too bad about about the job. My younger daughter (32 yrs.) has been looking for another job and she gets so discouraged. :-(

I didn’t watch Miracle Day. I liked the show as an ensemble, but it just wouldn’t be the same if half of them weren’t there.

Jobs are dumb. Interviewed twice in the space of a week, felt really positive, rejected from both. Back to square one, with nothing but my income tax refund to keep me afloat for another month, then, uhh… who the heck knows how I’ll pay the rent.
