2176 Tasting Notes
So my boss was out of the office yesterday, during all the grumpy people, and today when he came in we had our meeting, I explained what all had happened and everyones reactions, and he advised me to relax, because I’d done right, and he would handle it from there.
I love my boss. He’s great.
That said, I am still going to guzzle the tea. This week has given me a headache, and I intend to keep the flow of calming, life affirming tea going.
Today is going to be crazy, and probably unpleasant. Not only do we have to interact with all the rude and unpleasant people again, but there are a million and one things to do, and its possible our phones are not working. Eep.
I am feeling a bit stressed about the day, to say the least.
So I brewed up this, one of my very favorite blends, to seek solace in its fruity, honey’d depths.
It was a very good start. I shall have frequent cups of tea throughout the day, to help me find balance and calm in this probably very hectic day.
What a frustrating day at work. Ugh, it was just one problem after another, including some very rude people. (Why do people do this? We are all working! The circumstance is frustrating for everyone! Argh!)
So, after a particularly frustrating interaction I made up a cup of this, which tasted nice and helped refocus to the good things in life. This day will end, all will be well, and I will probably forget all about this in a month. Probably, anyway. Argh. Is it only Tuesday?
How is it only Tuesday? Surely I have lived longer than it only being Tuesday? Surely it is Thursday, or better yet, Friday? Yes? Yes?
I made this as my morning pot, and as I drank it I considered that if I’d ever actually had rum I’d have a better idea if this lived up to the name. I’m not much of a drinker, so I really don’t think I’ve ever had rum.
But this tea is nice, malty with a hint of something fudgy in it. I liked it a great deal this morning, where it made me feel cozy and warm.
Its been a frustrating Monday. Blargh.
So I bribed myself with a cup of tea after I made a difficult call, and this was that tea.
Its a reward in that its a sipdown, and I have been longing for this sipdown. This has been in my cupboard for too long, and now its gone, and I will not bring it back.
I’ve hit that Harney & Sons problem, though, were the tin is so darn pretty! What do I do with it? Argh, H&S tins are just so cute, but I never have anything to do with them, once I’ve drunk the tea.
I always perk up when I open the bag of this. It smells like cherries and cream, and it would be delicious, if it tasted like it smelled.
But it always brews up tart and a bit bitter, as if the unpleasant aspects of cherries and tartness (sour, bitter) showed up and left all the good parts elsewhere.
