2071 Tasting Notes
There was a choice this morning- do I overleaf this cup, to fit all the remaining tea into this final drink, or do I have two slightly weaker versions of this tea to kill it off? One cup won it!
Final thoughts. Malty, dry, generally unimpressive and I am not sorry to see it go. A very happy sipdown!
I had a really nice weekend, with both World Wide Knit in Public day, and also a high tea meet-up with some old friends.
Also it rained!
Alas, the weekend is over, and its back to work I go, where I have already accidentally printed a 178 page document that I did not mean to print.
This was my morning cup, which was the smooth and almost chocolate tasting cup I have come to expect/ enjoy. Not much left of it, but it coaxed me through the morning with great style.
So, the teas I bring to work is turning into a really fun project for me. I like to have two black teas (what I think of as a morning and afternoon blend), and one “other”, which has been oolongs or white teas, for the most part.
Well, with my last “other” sipped down yesterday I needed a new work tea to fill that neiche, and this is what I grabbed.
My criteria for work tea is something that I don’t love, but don’t hate enough to throw out, can ignore without feeling guilty, and is something this is just not getting sipped down at home. This tea hits all the criteria, so into the office it went!
This is, once again, profoundly underwhelming. I can get a hint of mulling spices, but its weak, and the base does not seem particularly able to add to the flavors.
I will be so satisfied when it is sipped down, and work tea is a wonderful step to get it there!
This is bonker. Its June. I am in California, where sunshine is not just a suggestion but a law. Its JUNE. Its raining! I am completely, completely thrown.
But I am not one to let a little thing like my confusion stand in the way of tea drinking, especially not when a perfect tea drinking day has landed in my lap.
Morning cup was this, which was just as rich and yeast-y as I remembered, and was an excellent snuggling down tea.
Trouble is that its Thursday. I cannot snuggle down. I must rise and face the day! Blerg. What I wouldn’t give to tuck myself back into bed, tea in easy reach and a book in hand. Oh well.
