drank PG Tips Loose Leaf by PG Tips
2157 tasting notes

Snow day! Up to (according to the hopeful drift-lovers in the area) eight inches expected by nightfall. (Don’t laugh at me, Maddy Barone, I know this is just skiffles compared to yours.) Although I am a confirmed winter-hater, it is a pretty one—fat flakes coming straight down, calm and quiet.

But since school got called and I had planned a couple days off toward the end of the week for work-at-home purposes, I just got the boss’ blessing to rearrange their order.
(And yes, I have been working away all morning. It’s break time.)

And since it’s break time, snow day tradition calls for a full pot of strong and fortifying PG Tips with milk. Nothing new to say about it, other than it’s dark and sharp and what one needs when you’re droopy. Evidently not everybody values it like I do, according to an article shared by another builders’ tea fan:

Say it ain’t so.

I would like some snow here as well please. I hate that it is so dark and white snow it brights at least life a little.

You can have mine! Lack of light and color certainly affects my mood and outlook in the winter! I am doing a little better than usual this winter; I think in part because my office light fixtures were replaced with good LED bulbs. I don’t have to sit in a dim room eight hours a day.

My lights are decent here too, but the life outside?

I know what good tea looks like; I’d rather read your reviews! :)

I haven’t been on in a few days (or more) so I had no idea you had snow! Just the thought of it makes me want my mom’s chicken and pastry…

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
