Tea: Lady Londonderry
Word Count: 3414
Guess who was 15 minutes early this time?! All the time that’s usually eaten up by getting ready and ordering was not a problem! I used the bathroom and ordered my tea and I was already seated and writing by 6:25pm. That’s what I love about being early.
I wanted to try a new tea this go around, so I went with the Lady Londonderry, it’s 7 on the Tipple+Rose fall/winter tea menu. My feelings on this tea were a bit ambiguous at first. It’s a black tea, but the taste was nowhere near as fruity as I was hoping with the strawberry and lemon in it. It’s primary taste was reminiscent of the aftertaste I usually have when I drink unsweetened hot teas, which was surprising to me.
I had to sweeten the tea a bit more than usual, but only a bit. Although unexpected, the tea’s taste was overall pleasant. It had a lightness to it that I don’t usually get with black teas and it lacked any distinctive aftertaste of its own, which I prefer with black teas.
“Only Ladies, who’ve written 1500 words, eat scones”
My mantra for the day.
I told myself I would buy a pastry once I hit 1500 and the great thing is that once I hit 1500 words, I was well into a good run so I actually didn’t buy the scone until I was around 1800-1900 words.
I got the Cornbread Brown Sugar Scone with clotted cream again. As delectable as the last time.
Had a huge bandage on my neck so I wore a turtleneck. My neck kept getting irritated and was a bit of a distraction at times 😦
There were a few stops and starts in my writing, mostly just moments where I would stop typing for no reason. This happens to me all the time but I always especially notice it when I get into a good writing streak. I persevered and increased my word count from last week. Plus Tipple+Rose gave discounts to people who came to the write-in the week before! Gonna try and get there early next week, being early was a MAJOR help this week.
Over all, it was a successful evening and, as always, I look forward to my next Tipple+Rose visit.
Write on, Wrimos!
