1779 Tasting Notes
So Andrews&Dunham just posted a sale, which was VERY convenient after we were discussing shipping prices in the US swap thread, and I sorta LOST MY MIND.
I ordered a tin of Mount Grey as it’s been on my list for 4 months or so now, just waiting for a shipping sale. I should have checked with other Canadians to see if we wanted to share a 3 pack or something but, nope, I just HAD TO HAVE IT.
I put out 4 resumes today to decent places. I’d be pretty excited if I got in at any of them, and hopefully I’ll start somewhere before my tea arrives and Joe raises an eyebrow at me. :P OTOH, $50 for the month isn’t that bad…
This tea is so great. If you like malty Assam’s (with fruity undertones?), and very pretty tiger tins, go pick one up RIGHT NOW.
My first tea of the day!
Everyone else is sleeping so I’m sitting with the baby watching the LAST episode of Downton Abbey and drinking dragon pearls. I still haven’t had my dragon pearl-off, but someday!
I have a feeling that I’ll need a comfort tea afterwards from what I’ve heard. :( 15 minutes to go, and I’m waiting for hell to break loose.
God, I love some of these characters so much. Even Mary, even though she’s so complicated. And stubborn.
I’m so sleepy today – IDK what’s up with that. TK didn’t go to bed until 1:30AM, but then we slept until 11. I should be feeling great!
Instead I’m blinking blearily at the brightness of my laptop screen and clutching tightly to my tea mug.
I love this tea.
We have company coming to visit/BBQ tonight. I might have to switch to coffee soon. AND/OR matcha.
Oh, I love this! I don’t want to rate it yet until I’ve had it with hot water too, but I can tell you this makes a great cold latte. Just added powder to hot water, whisked it, then added 5 oz of milk and used my milk frother to make it foamy and delicious.
I think I need to drink at least one cup of matcha per day seeing as I have so much, but I probably should try drinking it with water more instead of using milk. (hint: milk makes you fat. :P) I’m loving that I get to try all this out.
I love, love this tea!
I applied for this kickass job today that I really have high hopes for. Fingers are crosses. As a reward I decided to take the rest of the day to watching Downton Abbey, but I don’t know that that was the right choice either. I’ve almost halfway through Season 3 and there’s just too much to cry about! :O
And I already know about the major spoiler for the end of Season 3 so… I’ve got that to look forward to.
I woke up this morning on auto-pilot and poked through my box of samples to see if I could find one for the morning. And I didn’t want any of them. And suddenly I didn’t want tea at all.
:( That’s the hazard when it comes to focusing on sipdowns and trying unopened samples.
So, I said FORGET IT, and drank this instead and am now happy with tea again. Maybe I’ll update my cupboard and get a better idea of what I have by looking at the physical weight of it all, instead of focusing on the number. :P
