From Octavia Tea

Native to Southeast Asia, lychees symbolize romance and fortune. Every Eastern market has large baskets full of the red-skinned fruit. Similar in flavor to a plump, juicy grape with hints of pear, honey, rose and tropical flowers, the juice of fresh lychees imparts a deliciously sweet flavor to this antioxidant-rich black tea. The scenting process uses traditional, century-old techniques and takes place right at the garden.

Sipdown! And backlog from two Wednesdays ago.

Thanks to Roswell Strange for giving me the last of her samples of a couple of these Octavia tea! They really are quite cute little sample packs, and a perfect size, it looks like. I didn’t take a ton of notes while drinking it, but I did note that it seemed to be a pretty good lychee black; a malty base with no astringency, and an authentic juicy lychee flavour (somewhat floral, but not overly so). Good for a lychee black, but lychees generally are a bit too floral for me, so not a personal favourite.

Sipdown (101)!

Had this one in a timolino, and it was pretty good – definitely traveled a little better than I thought it would. I was pretty sure the subtle juiciness of the lychee wouldn’t translate but it did. I still echo my first impression though that this is just a relatively average lychee black. Good, for not exceptional.

Two stories today: One involves a coworker. And one involves Tre…

A couple nights ago me and another coworker were kind of playfully teasing/bantering with this 15 YO cashier named Matthew. He’s actually one of my favourite cashiers because he’s so sarcastic/witty and so am I so we both just kind of constantly play off each other, and it’s entertaining and fun.

So point is we were teasing him because his sideburns are CRAZY PUFFY and we were mocking him saying we could see his sideburns sticking out all the way from Customer Service, which is quiet a distance from the till he was working out. I THOUGHT we were being obviously sarcastic like usual but, uhh, the next day he came to work without sideburns. Welp.

So, I sorta directly influenced a 15YO who was probably super proud of his facial hair to shave it off. Even though I in no way meant to! And honestly, people who know me well know I’m the last person to persuade someone to shave; I have such a thing for facial hair. Every man should be bearded…

And now the Tre story.

I came home from work, and walked into the house – and immediately onto a whole bunch of pieces of lego. Not even getting started on how much it hurt. But, the big dork bought about $300 in Star Wars Lego battleships for himself as a Christmas present, and now there’s Lego literally everywhere in the apartment. Living room floor, kitchen floor, kitchen table…

Getting ready for work in the morning is like navigating a minefield.
