775 Tasting Notes
this was one of those free samples from david’s.
and i’ve had it saved in my office for months and months.
until today that is.
when i come in the office these days, i’ve started brewing a large 26oz cup along with 2 timolinos first thing.
otherwise when it comes to my second cup of tea, i got in a bad cycle where i’m so busy (or hyper focused on work) that i would just turn my electric kettle on, and then turn it on again 30 mins later, and then turn it on again 40 min later, etc etc until it was 4:00pm and i hadn’t brewed anything yet and i’d only had one cup of tea. one cup!!! Unacceptable!!
i’ve liked every Crush, Tear, Curl tea i’ve had. not because they are so strong really, but they almost always have the richest malty flavor of all teas. not that i’ve had many CTCs over all. but basically i should probably have some in my cupboard.
(note to self: i should also buy that Notting Hill tea from American Tea Room soon cuz it’s tasty and malty too mmm)
i had this saved and undrank for for months. maybe even a year! and…
shmiracles: hey you are into iced tea these days, and you are good at following recipes, here is a link to some tea recipes from davids. (excellent sales ploy)
oddree: HONG KONG MILK TEA. omg. making that. (snaps snaps!)
shmiracles: seriously?! SERIOUSLY!?! i haven’t brewed a new tea in weeks! and I JUST NOW BREWED my sample of that tea! (flail face palm barf waffles)
on a page of like 30 recipes that is the one she calls out
she is the most hilarious person and my bestie and we are totally synced today obviously because she is wearing press-on nails that i put hours of fun work and experimentation into so it’s obviously linked us, i mean that’s the only explanation i have at least and i’m just gonna go with it.
gonna be cross posted on our tea reviews today fo sho)
omg i never post on here any more wtf
and even right now i ran out of time and need to log off and run. ugh.
here is a video of oddree’s cat http://shmiracles.tumblr.com/post/86616074858
i bought this tea from VariaTEA yay!
i’ll write a real note later.
happy friday everyone!
yesterday i drank Chhhherryyy FAAntAAsEE….
when i think it in my head i can’t help but think the name dramatically and with a flourish.
moraiwe sent me this months ago and i’ve been totally hoarding it this whole time.
but yesterday was a Monday back to work after a long and sunny vacation week so i pulled out the big guns.
i listened to Deee-Lite at work and read a fic about Corgi!Clint (that was heart meltingly cute!) and i drank Chhhherryyy FAAntAAsEE!!!
take that Monday!
moraiwe and i agree that fig teas are delicious and to be savored. and she sent me this specifically for the figgy notes if i remember correctly.
it was a whimsical and darkly fruity cup. sure i wish i had more but what else is new haha. i delighted in every sip. thank you moraiwe!!!
PEACH for the BEACH!
Miami Beach vacation tea!
perfect choice let me tell you.
see, if you’re gonna lay on the beach and read your kindle you really need to make sure to drink enough water.
may as well take your empty plastic bottles of dasani and smart water and refill them…
- squeeze a tea bag through the spout
- fill the bottle with tap water
- put the lid back on and stash it in the hostel fridge next to the beer
- drink it for breakfast the next morning to stave off hangovers & beach dehydration alike!
- Win at Vacationing!
Oddree and i had a great time. i declare us to be a pro team for holidays.
pro. so very pro.
this tea was the best refreshing choice ever.
i’m gonna keep this habit up through the summertime. cheap teabagzzz!
had this for breakfast.
it might be my favorite carytown tea to date.
vacation starts tomorrow.
i am currently in my office at work waiting out a tornado warning.
i’m passing the time by shopping for Hawkeye t-shirts.
there are so many i’m having a very hard time picking just 1 or 2.
i will also keep looking for a shirt with Phil Coulson in space from the #2 recent Secret Avengers comic. it’s only a matter of time.
Ah! Rose and Cherry!
When I brewed it I didn’t know what I was making really. I just figured I’d look it up later.
I’m not a huge green tea person, but I’m starting to enjoy them in the evenings more often. The change in weather helps. The warmer days just call out for greener cups.
This tea is yum. It’s a green I will easily look forward to drinking the rest of the week.
I’m watching Shield in the student lounge at work.
I’m trying to savor it.
Also, it’s Hawkeye comic day. I’m goin shoppin at lunch :)
i had this late last night as i ate ice cream for dinner.
i was highly irritable for absolutely no reason.
i really really like drinking white teas at night.
and i wanted to try this one plain because using white teas in fandom blends is always a good idea. it adds texture. i don’t know how else to explain it.
this tea isn’t anything fancy, but it is very much what it is. respectable for gulping something fresh and light and hot.
tea for a queen!
simple business classy tea.
teacups clink and clack tea.
warm and toasty and light.
is it my birthday? it must be my birthday. cuz there is a MCU Harlequin AU Challenge being filled in AO3 and it’s got my big fluffy name all over it. (i need something to balance out all the darkDARK fics i always end up with, poor Clint.)
