2217 Tasting Notes

An oldie from Sil, I think.

I really like it. Nice and sweet and fruity, and I do like the bergamot as an addition.

Sadly, the primary ingredient is apples, and so I will probably be regretting this cup of tea in a couple hours. Darn apples are everywhere.

Tea pop!!

Although if I thought I was going to make a tea pop tonight I would have got the sparkling water and not the club soda.

4 tsp or so for 16 oz final volume.

Preparation
4 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

With maple whipped cream, because I made some yesterday for my coffee and why not.

They’re going more construction on the building again today – it’s a holiday. Spraying noxious chemicals outside my kitchen door, and drilling into the supports under my living room floor. I have a very tiny apartment, so there is no where else to go.

Fun times.

At least I have tea. And I think I shall make some of these. https://www.budgetbytes.com/2017/02/homemade-chocolate-crescent-rolls/

Fjellrev

Oh geez, lucky you. :/

OMGsrsly

At this point, the place is a joke. :/ Spent the day online looking for apartments, but everything is so expensive.

Fjellrev

Aww I hear you, rent went up so freakishly much here, it’s nearly impossible to live comfortably solo unless you have a very well-paying job, which is next to impossible to get right now. Sigh.

OMGsrsly

My new/current job (same pay rate really!) pays so much better than the ones in my field, too. Ugh, academia.

Fjellrev

Tsk tsk, such a joke.

I made a large pot of this last night and drank it all with milk and a little sugar.

Mmm…

Meh. Clovey. A little soapy. Not terrible, but I prefer the classic (and cheap) Russian Caravan for a smoky tea.

Au revoir, tea! We had a good run.

Possibly too long, but shh. We won’t speak of that.

Still a delicious tea I’m super happy to have had. Would get again.

Nom.

So good.

So, so, so, so good.

2 steeps. First at 3 minutes, second at IDK how many minutes because both my timers are being used. One for laundry, one for this: https://smittenkitchen.com/2014/03/double-chocolate-banana-bread/

The banana bread is so so good too! I used super ripe bananas and only 100g sugar (personal taste really).

Indigobloom

I bet this tea goes well with it too :P

OMGsrsly

YES. So good. :D

Plunkybug

Wow! Great combo! And super jelly you have any CVA left.

The things one finds.

I totally thought this tin was hiding some other tea. But no. It is, indeed, Paris.

Nice fruity EG. With milk. Yum.

BTW. WTF is up with all this snow?! It’s not supposed to snow here. :|

Erm, global warming?

OMGsrsly

Ha. Touché.

Mookit

Lol I’m so done with the snow ;_; It was so nice and sunny a few days ago…

Evol Ving Ness

Every day I wake up and expect snow here, but nope. I’ll come. I know it. For now, most often, it is just bitter cold.

Evol Ving Ness

But it is nice when the feet are dry.

OMGsrsly

Vancouver does sometimes get snow, we just haven’t had this much in a while. It’s as though the city just doesn’t know what to do. And apparently the buses do not use suitable tires… I got stuck at work on Friday, and walked down the trails in my converse style sneakers! Not exactly what I was expecting.

OMGsrsly

Also, I was shopping online today for waterproof shoes for work. Naturalizer has quite a few options if you’re into ankle boots.

Fjellrev

A friend of mine is in visiting right now and can’t get over the snow!

Had this. Tea good.

It powered me (well, plus cereal and frozen blueberries with a side of sweet potato fries) through a whole lot of sewing this evening. Leggings, stretchy skirt for work, and the comfiest yet most unflattering jogging pants ever.

My favorite work skirt ever (alas, several sizes ago) was made from stretchy gray t-shirt material.

OMGsrsly

I really like using ponte. It looks like a business fabric, but feels like pyjamas. :)
