1915 Tasting Notes
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.
Its raining! Its a Sunday and its raining, and I don’t need to go anywhere except to yoga, and that’s my favorite sort of day.
So I’ve got a stew in the crock pot, so the house will smell lovely the whole day, and its going to be a tea drinking festival, while I get all cozy!
Maybe I’ll bake a cake as well! Ooooh!
Anyway, the first tea was this creamy, buttery cup of warmth. I surprised myself with how much I liked it. Its really good! I might even get more, if I can.
I was filling for someone in my little side job, which meant I needed to be out the door by 6:30 a.m. this morning. Ugh. So I needed a bagged tea, as I didn’t have time for a proper pot. The trouble is that I’ve been really working through the bagged black teas! But I remembered I had a sample sachet of this, and all was well.
Its really fresh and fruity.Not exactly what I think of when I think winter blend, but it was very refreshing.
I specifically saved this tea for today. I really like this tea, and decided I could have it today, which was the first day of my new job.
Its new! And overwhelming! And I felt wrung out and tired at the end of the day. Its so much, and this is a complete industry change for me, and so the lingo is unfamiliar to me.
Though it wasn’t unhappiness, I did have a good solid cry this evening, while my lovely boyfriend poured tea down my throat. Its stressful right now. I’ll be arming myself with extra tea!
