1911 Tasting Notes
Oh my, I have some awesome coworkers.
Today I ended up hauling home a ton of new teas, all of which are completely new to me! My new boss gave me tea, my co workers at my side job both gave me tea, and my sister has given me tea. So I’m good on teas for quite a while.
What a lovely bunch of people I know. And a lot of it is stuff I would not have picked up by myself, which is exciting. Its neat to try things out of my comfort zone.
I like this, but I don’t quite love it. There is something a little artificial about it. But it’s still fun!
This is, simply, the most sophisticated mint tea blend I have. If this tea was a person, it would be a really cool architect sort of person, with bold geometric glasses and a taste for spare monochrome. Its just so modern, so elevated. Not at all a sweet or cuddly mint (not that there is anything wrong with a sweeter mint. In fact, I love them dearly). This makes a fascinating blend on a winter’s evening.
Monday! First Monday of the new job. Cue the high pitched worrying noises.
It actually went ok, but I’m going to have the creeping feeling that I’m missing something for a while.
This tea is such a solidly good one that I hardly have to pay any attention to it while I bump around in the morning getting ready.
A good day for the first Monday, and a bright spark in a cold morning.
