1914 Tasting Notes
This morning it was really hard to turn on my bedroom light. Ouch! Bring back my soft darkness! Alas!
So a strong brew was required to kick me into action this morning. Kandy!
I’m learning this bold brew. I need a lighter steep at the moment to really get along with it, but when I manage to brew it that way its strong, and dances skillfully on the edge of bitterness. Its even got a note of sweet honey in it, which is very tasty.
I am so done with summer. Its nearly Autumn, officially, and it was 100 degrees yesterday, and 90 now. Sheesh. I want my fall teas!
I’m bridging the gap with fruity flavors, such as Paris.
I like starting a day with a strong tea- it makes it much easier to face tricky days. (Gotta love coming into the office with a huge and confused pile of paperwork to sort, and a million things to do at this very moment. Sigh)
It was a busy weekend.
The post-breakup archery went well! We had fun, and didn’t lose a single arrow, which is great.
We also had lunch, and talked a bunch, and I’m hoping she feels much more centered.
Yesterday was a day with my significant other, and some of his buddies. I like them, and it was a fun hang out, but I wish I’d had more time to run errands!
Now we’re back to the office, and off we go.
My friend, who I was worried about earlier this week, has just gone through a truly awful breakup, and is a wreck.
While I am glad (he was a total ass), I know she is devastated, so we’re planning some fun girl time.
Which, in my world, means archery. My own beloved and myself are taking her out to the local archery range today, and we shall shoot hay bales until she feels better.
She’s never been, and I hope she finds it a lot of fun! And therapudic!
This morning seems like a very long time ago now. And the day only just half over, with at least one more challenge ahead. Bleh.
So I needed quick and easy this morning, and grabbed this.
I tried a lighter steep today, and it actually came out nice! Theres a faint honey sweetness to this, when I brew it lightly, which I appreciate. I’m glad I gave it a go.
Backlog from, er, Monday?
As the days cool off a little, I’m starting to look forward to drinking tea during the evening again, and, as I have several things that need sipping down, I took this off my shelf.
I still am not impressed. Its supposed to taste like a pumpkin cheesecake, a worthy goal. It tastes like Rooibos. Boo.
So today is the one day of my working week that I can sleep in (hip hip hooray!) and it was spoiled by my phone ringing at 6:30 a.m. It was a friend of mine, but she hung up before I could answer, didn’t leave a message, and now I’m a bit anxious about that, as she’s going through some relationship stuff. Perhaps I’ll call her after I finish this cup of tea.
My interview yesterday went well, I must say. I now need to go through a background check, and some other things, so its a waiting game. I’m optimistic. We shall see!
