Too Warm for a Fire, So... tea review today.

I was all ready to brew up some Ti Kuan Yin last night, for something completely different. I was going to take pictures and everything - a bonefide tasting session. And just as I was getting up to head to the kitchen...bam! The power went out. It was stormy, thunder & lightening and everything, and the whole block went dark.

Normally our power outages are very short, but this one lasted almost two hours - long enough I was starting to get nervous about my fish tanks. On the "brighter" side, I did light practically every candle in the house, a good excuse to burn some of the stock I have around. I even lit the hurricane lamp, which hasn't been used for years.

But our stovetop is electric, so no hot water for tea, since it was far too warm to light a fire (not that I have a fire-worthy kettle anyways). We drank iced tea instead, and enjoyed the gentle glow of candlelight throughout the house until nearly bed time.

Perhaps tonight will be better for tea?

  1. Aw, I'm sorry about the blackout, but it sounds like the evening was very pleasantly cozy.

    Here's to a great future session!
