Thanks to mtchyg for the sample! I adore you and hope your power out there in Michigan is restored soon.
TO THE TEA. I’m a bit wiped out, so I picked this high-caffeine blend. I’m petsitting an 8-month-old dog who whimpers at night. I don’t know what the dog’s mommies usually do (let him sleep in the bed?), but crating him and leaving him alone is apparently not it.
So ahhhh, a nice chestnut caramel blend. (There’s also allegedly vanilla here. I’m not sure.) I don’t know what a chestnut tastes like, but this is a fairly flat, deep-note caramel/molasses black.
It’s a nice blend, and I’m enjoying it, but I am unlikely to write home about it.
There are other teas for which I would definitely get a nice notecard, an envelope, a stamp, a fancy pen, and craft a letter to my mom. (Please don’t call my bluff on this.)
That said, this caffeine is a blessing this afternoon.
Here’s the puppy, in case you were wondering:
