2374 Tasting Notes
I love the weekend. When I want a pot of tea and a few little tea biscuits in the afternoon, why then I can brew a pot and bring out the cookies!
So I decided to brew this up, as its been in my cupboard for a while, but untasted. And now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long, as its lovely. Its rich, but with a honeyed smoothness at the bottom, which makes it go down an absolute treat.
Friday. Thank goodness, its Friday.
I am quite stressed at work, and today is going to be massively busy. I’m worried that I won’t be done with the larger projects I’ve been given. Argh.
I wish I was feeling more confident in this new job! I’m dying to feel calm and detached when I come into the office, but right now I’m tense and stressed beyond belief.
Which means I’m not sleeping well. Which means that I’m not sleeping well. Which means tea.
This is my last bit of this, so its a sipdown.
I really like this blend. Its gorgeous in the cooler weather. Now that we’re pushing against spring, its time to drink it down.
Drank my final pot of this with my breakfast today.
Pumpkin? Yes, most certainly. I get a good pumpkin flavor, and a dash of pumpkin spices.
Syrupy? Pancakes? Nope. I missed those notes entirely, not getting anything that tasted of maple, or of pancakes, for that matter. A little disappointing, that it didn’t live up to its name, but a decent enough tea.
I was feeling so pleased with my sipdowns that I bought more teas. Whoops.
Ugh, daylight savings time.
Anyone expecting elegant prose, or poetic desciptions, well, be gone, my friends. This day has been one long session of uggggggh, as I dragged my sorry carcass around, mewing slightly and bumping into objects.
I do not like waking up early, that’s for sure.
So! Bold! Rich! Strong! That’s what I grabbed this morning. Thank you for all your help, Winter Solstice.
This morning was cold and rainy, and a warm and beautiful cup of tea was just the right thing.
It was also my last of this, and this is a winter tea to me. Its pushing up against springtime, so I don’t think I’ll get another bag of this until the autumn, but I will get a bag then, for sure.
