Shae’s ADVENT CALENDAR, DECEMBER 10

Oh well. Where to start this tasting note, again ?
First of all, I had completely no idea how to take today photo. And it is obvious. I just took some blue-related things and probably my last part of my tea ware — thermometer. I just found out how off is it! I think it could be around 23-25°C in our living room as I was in T-shirt and long pants only. So, definitely not 15°C as thermomoter says.

I generally accept well Earl Greys, I don’t mind even it is not a “clean” one as this one. But something went wrong.

I preapred as usual, 2 teaspoons, 4 minutes steep, 300 ml of off boiling water in my favourite glass mug. The aroma was clearly creamy with bergamot, so I took bit later a first sip. Oh… it was rather like a cream with bergamot. Somewhere in the background hides the base tea. It was REALLY CREAMY. And then it was cooling down and bergamot was more and more apparent. And as an oil. Yep, I noticed it was oil flavouring and well, it wasn’t nice. It was bit of bitter and somehow biting my tongue. It was in flavour completely opposite of the creamy and I am (and was when drinking) bit confused.

Not a fan. It was too creamy even for my taste; and too much flavoured by bergamot oil. Maybe even I could call it “blergamot” as… someone call it that way, but I don’t remember who!

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHH I SEE TERRY PRATCHETT!!!!!! WHICH BOOK IS IT????

Martin Bednář

It’s Snuff. Only one I own, my brother got remaining ones :)
In Czech translation. But good one :)

ashmanra

My son just told me it was the cover of Snuff! i LOVE Pratchett. My skn introduced me to his books. Men At Arms, Night Watch, and Feet of Clay are some of my favorites.

ashmanra

Oh, and Soul Music, and of course, The Color of Magic and I loved The Shepherd’s Crown…

Bummer about the tea, Martin! I’ve been wanting to try one of Terry Pratchett’s books, but there are so many. Where to start??

Martin Bednář

I am wrong person to asking where to start, as this is only one Pratchett’s book I read. I suppose ashmanra will answer you better than I :)
It’s fun reading though, but especially Snuff isn’t one of the typical Discworld book. I have seen a play based on Wyrd Sisters and that was fun.

ashmanra

Shae: You could start at the beginning of the Discworld series and read The Color of Magic and then The Light Fantastic. That will get you familiar with his world!

Terry Pratchett made tons of pop culture references as well as literary and world culture references. I have no doubt I miss a ton of puns and jokes because of not knowing! When my kids read Soul Music, they got the Blue Brothers references but not the older ones, so we had fun going over those.

I think I named some of my favorite books already. Feet of Clay was heart wrenching, because even though it is a funny book Pratchett dealt with racism and prejudice in it in a way that made you really feel it. I started crying several times just from the ache of injustice that I know was fictional here but all too real in our world.

Any books about the Night Watch are great.

I knew nothing at all about Tiffany Aching when I read The Shepherd’s Crown, but still enjoyed it immensely.

My son loved and read reference books and such and hated fiction until he discovered Pratchett. When he asked me to give a try I knew I really must.

Fair warning – some of the books take a couple of chapters to hook you. Sometimes there are lots of characters and story lines that you don’t see how they can ever possibly come together. But they do. Light bulbs go off and you will shout and laugh.

We used to read passages aloud to each other laughing so hard we couldn’t speak with tears running down our faces.

Shae

Wow, thank you! I will start with The Color of Magic then. I didn’t realize there were so many books in the Discworld series until I looked it up just now.
