2778 tasting notes

It’s my moms birthday today, and we’re going to have a wonderful day of fun things together!
In her honor I am drinking my first cup of this for the year- my mothers very favorite thing is pumpkin, so this was the only possible blend.
Omnom. It makes me feel like autumn is here.

Happy birthday to your mom!

This tin has been sitting, completely untasted, for a long time. So, into the work bag it goes, where I expect to drink it down over the coming weeks at work.
And I feel that it’s going to be difficult, as my first cup was not very good. It was bitter, heavy, and unpleasant.
I will try a very delicate steep next time, and see if that helps, but I’m not much impressed with it, on first go.

Ten teas. Excuse me while I vibrate with disbelief. I currently own ten teas. Ten teas total.
Eeeeeeek!
I’d say I’m allowed to place an order now, so I will do so soon.
This has steeped up much better today. I still get a little of the dry mouthfeel, but it’s less bitter.
I can’t say that honey is the main flavor I taste. Maybe next time I’ll add a dollop of actual honey to it.

Oh, the horrors of a single-digit cupboard ;) Happy shopping!

And a sipdown!
I’m glad I brought this with me to work, and actually worked on drinking it down. I’ve enjoyed it!
This smaller cupboard size is still rather amazing to me, and I’m feeling so productive in my sipdowns!
Another tea now needs to be picked for the work desk!

Backlogged from yesterday.
Hmmm. In theory, I should love this. Honey is one of my very favorite flavors, and this blend is by Harney, a brand that I always enjoy.
But I cannot help but feel that this one has rather missed the mark. The honey is sort of artificial tasting, and the brew leaves a dry feeling in my mouth.
I shall play around with this, as I’ve got a bit of it. I hope I can make it work!

I may very well get this again, it was a really nice breakfast blend. Strong, with solid flavors, but it never felt like you were drinking something too bitter.
Farewell, Shagadelic!

I was really dragging yesterday, and wanted something solid to drink. Bingo!
This is a really nice breakfast blend- strong without being overwhelming, and that is just the ticket when I am feeling that worn out.
I’ve been fighting a bit of a cold, and had some trouble getting to sleep lately, a bad combination. So, nice tea to drink is absolutely essential.
I’m almost done with this! I’m absurdly pleased about that.

I brought a pouch of this to sit on my work desk, and so far it is proving to be a very pleasant tea. The mint is subtle and creamy, which works nicely with the oolong, and I’ve enjoyed a few cups of it now.

My second time with this has yielded results similar to the first- namely that it smells fantastic, but I’m getting a bitter edge to it, and I really need to keep an eye on my steep times…..

So, I brought this with me to work this week. My boss is back from vacation, which means that the thermostat has been reset to sub zero temperatures, and I am drinking a lot of tea. Plus this week I’ve got a bit of a cold, so I figured keeping my insides warm with cups of tea is the way to go.
So I brought this, and drank it all down in a couple of days, as it’s very easy to drink.
I cannot say that it tasted like Marmalade to me, it was just a fruit infusion. Not unpleasant, but not the orangy treat I was hoping for.
Oh well, now a Sipdown!

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
