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.

This has been languishing in my cupboard for far too long. Its time to keep up with the ol tea drinking goals.
Not my favorite Darjeeling, I’m afraid. Not bitter (though my memory tells me it was, at the beginning), but its not anything special.
Thats ok, it will be writer fuel for the afternoon.

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!

Well, crap about giving up your leisurely morning.
Glad you had tea.

Its a perfect tea drinking day. Its sort of grey and drizzly out there, and I am enjoying the finer things of wet weather-namely being inside and cozy, and watching the rain outside.
This tea is not the ideal companion for this, but it will certainly do, in a pinch.

A cup of this has done wonders for my headache this morning, and I am feeling slightly more hopeful about my day.
Still wish they hadn’t stolen my delivery of tea, though.

Evol Ving Ness

What! Someone stole your tea delivery?! Scoundrels!

Evol Ving Ness

Will the company replace it? Does that happen or is it gone forever?

I just ordered more, and am having it sent to a safer address. In the history of hoodlums stealing things off my porch (unfortunately a longer history than I want), sometimes the company will replace it, sometimes not, but as its not the companies fault (and it is not a one-of-a-kind thing, and I could replace it) I often just order more.

Evol Ving Ness

Wow. This has become more common here, where thieves will stalk a postal truck and steal whatever package they drop off. Once this became a thing, or at least a more common thing, official-looking brand packages now need to be picked up.

As for ordering more, here we pay big bucks for shipping from the States, and sometimes even custom duties, so we tend to make BIG or joint purchases to make that shipping cost well worth it, so having to replace it is not something we could easily entertain.

It’s all a pain. Sorry that this is an issue.

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.

Stay safe!

I’m thinking a booby trap I the side yard might be in order…some string with metal cans attached that will make a nice banging and clanging when they walk through it! Sorry this happened to you. Thieving makes me ANGRY. Someone stole my front porch rocking chairs between midnight and 6 am once and I refuse to replace them because I don’t want to have to worry about them.

gmathis

That’s just mean. I have no patience with people who don’t play nice.

drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea

I am really dragging this afternoon, and unfortunately its the sort of drag that cannot be cured with tea.
Oh well. Still tasty!

Evol Ving Ness

I tried to cure my drag today with tea and nope, didn’t work either.

Gasp! I, while scooping some of this out of its tin, saw the bottom of the container! Its not exactly close, but its maybe a diligent week of drinking away.
Well, bottoms up! Lets get this sucker sipped down.

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.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
