2721 Tasting Notes
Its Tech Week, and if you’ve ever been in a play before you know that means that this is the point where you rethink all your life decisions and get to bed veeery late.
So I am going to need all the tea this week, and the good stuff too.
But Tower is proving a sweet and nurturing friend this week, and I am very glad to be drinking it.
I keep finding the same thing over and over with the Bird and Blend teas- namely that the taste never lives up to the smell.
I wish this tea was just… more. Its in no way unpleasant, but it is not special.
Its the current work desk tea, which is sometimes what I do when it is time to sip a tea all the way down.
There is nothing unpleasant about this tea, it’s just a big forgettable…..
I’ve brought this with me to the office, to drink it at my desk.
Poor tea has been sadly neglected, which it doesn’t really deserve. Its an ordinary, but generally nice rose black tea.
I really like rose teas, but it is a delicate thing to keep them from being soapy. This one manages to walk that line, and its going to work well on my work desk.
So, in addition to being a tea drinker, I am also a knitter. I am a total cliche, but I adore the times where I can be curled up in my cozy chair, with a big mug of tea and my knitting, and just feel like Miss Marple. So, when I saw that this yarn company (Churchmouse) I snapped it up.
So Churchmouse has a collaboration with Smith Tea Maker, and there are four blends, one for each season. I am predictable, so I grabbed up the one for autumn.
Its a really nice breakfast blend. Sturdy, just the tiniest bit astringent, and well balanced. I think it would take milk and sugar very, very well.
It would also be a great cup of tea to drink while sitting in a big cozy chair and work on a knitting project!
