939 Tasting Notes
I came across this packet during the great tea upheaval: the preparation for the cross border Discovery TTB as I hunted down Canadian teas for our American teafrens to try. And it’s not like I found all the Canadian teas that I wanted to share. Tea problems, tea problems.
This one is an ancient one of Anne’s creations yet still delicious. I brought it along for a brief trip out of town. Hence, the wifi and being able to post from this account which I can only use on my laptop which I have with me.
It is a super pain to not have wifi access at home and having to run out to cafes w a small tablet to check email and such. Such a limit on my online life. I do miss my hours on Steepster with my teafrens.
Oh well, I am hoping to get all that sorted at some point soon. Up to now, there have been for more urgencies than wifi to deal with. Soon, people, soon.
Still no wifi at home here. I make do with the occasional outing to a cafe or some such to catch up a wee bit. There are advantages to not having the colossal time suck in my life. I am not tea shopping as much, for one thing.
That said, I miss my tea postings and catching up with what you all are drinking. And you guys and your happenings, of course.
Here I am for an hour or two in a bakery cafe scrolling through all the tea postings that I’ve missed. This method is troubling as I don’t have enough time to actually read through and that bugs me. But that’s just what it is for now.
I’ve been drinking all the things. This one is coming up often in my rotation. It is the first hojicha blend that has caught my attention. The dense twiggy woodiness just works with the maple. Yet another score for 52Teas—damn.
Gah! Still no wifi at home, but I’ve hauled my laptop to a cafe to download a few things from my webmail before it disappears altogether: hence, having my real steepster self back. (My webmail allowance is teeny.) Fortunately, the cafe has wifi and air conditioning because the humidity continues to be brutal here. Sadly, or happily depending on how you look at it, the AC is better than the wifi. And the person here is cursing me with hiphop, and not even good hiphop. Good to know which places I will not further frequent. Gah and gah again.
Trying this for the first time, though not in the cafe. Darn tasty. Reminds me of my beloved Banana Pudding.
