Ben: Wotcha chaps.

You might have noticed Dan doing more than the lion’s share of reviewing at the moment. This is largely because:

  1. I am in the middle of changing jobs;
  2. I am in the middle of renting a new flat (exciting!);
  3. I am getting ready for a trip to Glasgow;
  4. Dan bought me the limited edition version of Tonight: Franz Ferdinand for my birthday and I’m having to get up every three minutes to change track;
  5. I am lazy.

Sorry about that. I’m intending to do a few things this afternoon to make up for it but posts might be quiet over the next week or so.

In the meantime, I sent our friend Mike over at The Evolution Diaries another sample of tea, this time Adagio’s blooming jasmine. As well as discussing it on his podcast, he’s also made a brief video about it. Well, actually, it’s a video of him trying to talk about it whilst eating wasabi peas which probably isn’t good for the taste. Silly boy.

Normal service will resume shortly!

  1. Hi!
    You’re right. I am silly.

    I’m also a bit confused as to why the teatunes caption doesn’t appear at the bottom like I made it do when I edited this. I’m in a bit of a huff about that now.

    I sincerely hope I’m not dragging you two down here with my ineptitude, because I really know painfully little, and I’m trying to learn as I go.

    I will say this…

    The colour was slightly darker than the Jing-tea Jasmin bloom, yet it wasn’t as turbid in terms of organic matter floating about in it (the little white hairs I think they are). The smell was stronger in the packaging but again seemed to dissipate when you actually brewed it. I found light and pleasant, but ultimately I think we can see on the video I’ve fallen to the same conclusion as you have, and that I’m probably a black tea drinker.

  2. Black tea drinker, eh?

    *plots*

  3. I still haven’t posted your CD. You might need to PM me your address.

    But I’m going to do you another one quickly, now, completely random lineup.
