drank Anastasia by Kusmi Tea
330 tasting notes

Oh the indignity. To treat a princess like this…

It’s Monday, and I wanted something with a little more kick to it, so I tossed some Anastasia into my tea bottle to bring with me to work.

Arrived, and added some suboptimally heated water to the bottle, let it brew, then poured into a mug with a packet of Splenda and a tub of breakroom coffee creamer.

A true princess rises above these things, and comports herself with grace. As does Anastasia. You can tell she is no common working class tea. She would be much better with sugar and real cream, but she will make do with what is here.

I really do need to start bringing half and half with me to work…

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
