2327 Tasting Notes
Adventures in tea drinking!
My morning sachet of this completely overturned, dumping all the loose leaf into the cup, where it pooled at the bottom like a malevolent seaweed cluster.
I strained the leaf out, and was left with a really rather nice cup of this warming chai. A good glend for a morning.
My afternoon, if not my morning, is going to be spent drinkng tea and writing, and if I am very good, I might go to the movies later, and maybe treat myself to dinner!
But this was my first pot this afternoon, and I am ashamed to say I over steeped it. Boo! What am I doing, diminishing this lovely brew?
I was all set to have this be a leasurly morning, full of tea and writing on the Nanowrimo project and sitting around in my PJ’s for a very long time.
Alas, a coworker needed an emergency fill for the morning work, so up I stumbled and went out into the cold, unfeeling world.
But I carried a cup of this in my belly, and it helped with the early morning. All hail the Queen!
It is going to be one of those days I think.
I got home from work last night to discover my side gate standing open, and a package that UPS said was delivered not actually delivered. I suspect mail theft, as its happened before. And it was tea in that package! Argh!
A few nights ago as well I think I heard someone creeping through my side yard in the middle of the night, also not the first time that would have happened.
Hmm. Maybe time to think about moving.
This morning I woke with a headache, and decided this would be a good brew. And it was, but my steeper basket came open, and all the leaf got loose in the cup.
So, yay today. Grumble.
This tea is now outstripping much beloved teas in the times-drunk games. That’s what happens when its a work tea!
And yet, there is still so much more of it! Why are the bottomless tea tins never the ones of your very favorites? This is a good, not great bottomless tea blend, which is also a rare duck. Usually the bottomless ones are the teas you don’t really care for at all.
