Sipdown (125)!

I’m so pissed at myself. Today, I carried up my tea tray, some cups, and a gaiwan along with the last bloom from my room in the basement. I made it perfectly fine up the flight of stairs into the kitchen. I set the tray, with the teaware on it, down on an island and then as I turned around what did I do!? I knocked the gaiwan off the tray/counter. It could have been a lot worse; I could have shattered the entire fishy gaiwan. Instead I only chipped the lid of my gaiwan. But, a chip is still a chip – and this is a pretty large one. I’m so mad that such a small careless action chipped my shiny new gaiwan! Now I’m torn whether or not I want to try and replace the lid of the gaiwan or just accept it and continue to use it with the chip. Ugh!!!

But anyway, once I kind of got over the damage to the Gaiwan and switched it out for a different one I got back to drinking the tea I’d originally picked out in the first place. And, mmm! This tea is truly wonderful; and the smooth malt, cocoa, and apricot notes made it quite easy to forget about my teaware troubles at least for the time being.

I’d totally consider getting this tea again!


can you find the chip?


we were talking about the japanese art of fixing broken things the other day, i cant remember if it was here or somewhere else?
