...no 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?
