Once more the weather here is gray and wet, good thing I typically prefer rain over sun most days. On top of the cold wet weather today was the first day of finals and lucky me had my worst two on the first day, History of Soviet Russia and a lab practical for a lithics (stone tools) analysis class. But after two more finals (North American Archaeology and one for a women’s studies class on wild women having already finished my independent study last week), I will be home and starting my internship two days later. After the long day of tests and a weather induced migraine I curled up with a mug of this and an article on a possible ritual associated assemblage of cattle skulls at a Viking Age Icelandic farmhouse.

This tea is not too malty and has a cocoa and somewhat raisiny or other fruity note to it. The mouthfeel is creamy but does have a slight bitter note when cool. It also paired well with a few oat flour cookies with cranberries, raspberries, and apple puree baked in. A nice end to a rather stressful day. It is something that is relatively light in flavor and can be sipped mindlessly while doing work.

I’m a graduate student in anthropology specializing in zooarchaeology (archaeozoology).

I’ve been drinking tea my entire life and when I was in high school fell into the world of loose leaf tea and the obsession has only grown from there. I drink far more tea than I log, but I am hoping to finally start rectifying that.
