Today’s tea is an inspired one. I ordered new tea for work the other day, but silly me forgot to consider the delivery address. So now I’ve got a big package to pick up from the post office on wednesday (having given up on the stupid package pick up place that keeps displacing my parcels), all of which I’ll have to carry with me into work on thursday. Instead of just having the silly thing delivered directly to work! Oh well, I can steal a few samples of the leaves, I guess.
Anyway, the reason this one is inspired is because one of the new work teas is one that has nothing in common with this one except the brand, but I’m imagining it to have the same sort of creamy-sweet quality as this one does.
I’ve even managed to make it a pretty good cup today, which is good seeing as this seems to be one of those teas that I end up neglecting without meaning to. It’s so summerly and nice, I really ought to have it more often. It reminds me of visiting the boyfriend’s family and having rhubarb crumble with custard. In spite of the fact that the rhubarb is sort of not really coming out clearly in this cup. Which doesn’t really add up with it being a pretty good cup today, but there you are. I never claimed to be logical or consistent.
I just really like this. It tastes pink and girly, and I suspect that the boyfriend would dislike it on principle.
