Good morning Steepsterites.
Today, I’ve decided, is decupboarding day. Let’s see how many I can get through.
This one is one I got from some kind soul once, the identity of whom I’ve forgotten because I’ve got so much gift tea from so many people lying around and no reliable system for remembering where it all came from. I’ll devise something of the sort, but there are a few things that need to come in order first. It’s all part of getting the tea corner sorted out. The tins are still all kicking around on the table in an only slightly organised pile. Not for lack of trying, though, but by the time we finally picked some shelves for that corner, they were not in stock. (We also bought a shelf for the bathroom but can’t put it up yet because we got a middle bracket instead of two end brackets. Typical!) After the shelves have been sorted out, I have some ideas for a gift remembering system which may or may not work out.
Anyway, the first time I had this it seems I wasn’t really all that impressed. That fits badly with how I ended up drinking quite a lot of it in a short time until the sample was nearly gone. Having waited a good while, I’m polishing it off now. I don’t know, I think it was something to do with how perhaps the flavour itself wasn’t really what I was looking for, but I liked the idea of it so much that I just kept trying.
It’s a pretty good tea to drink, really, just not one that makes you sit down and want to try and pick the flavour profile apart. It works best as a whole without too much thought activity. Probably not super-suitable for a first tea of the day tea either, but I can’t really say as I care. :) I imagine it’s probably a pretty good tea to have while reading a good book. I’ll go test that theory out I think.
(I love wednesdays. Have I mentioned lately that I love wednesdays? I feel for all you poor souls out there that have to be at work today and I’m not jealous at all. Aaaaah wednesday. The Weekend Minor.)
