2778 Tasting Notes

So my cupboard is absolutely minuscule, which is mind boggling. I’m part proud, and part frantic.
I was trying to get my cupboard into better shape, and am rather proud of myself for doing so, but I think I’ve hit the opposite end, and that it’s time to go tea shopping!
The good news about the smaller cupboard means that I feel the freedom to bring in some new to me companies, and that would be good! Try all the new teas!

Time to go tea shopping! How exciting! Congrats on your cupboard renewal!

Rosehips

Thanks! I am psyched.

Kittenna

That’s so fun! Just remember to exercise some restraint so you don’t end up undoing all your hard work, haha. I feel like that’s the pattern I’m struggling with (not that I’ve ever reached any version of “miniscule” in the last 7 years).

Suddenly it’s summer again. The temperature has, almost over night, vaulted into the upper 90’s, and my season of despair has begun.
Its so tricky to drink tea in this weather! I don’t like it, Sam I Am.
I picked up a new tin of this on a whim. It had been years since I last had it, and, you know what? I still like it! It fills a solid, basic part of the cupboard, which is great.

I am not sure where you are, Rosehips, but we have already been in the 100’s here in NC. One year, we had over thirty days straight of +95 temps with many if those days being +100. I confess that I turned the a/c to 72 and took a cold shower in the middle of the day just so I coukd really enjoy a hot cuppa.

I’m in California, and while it’s always this hot in the summer, we had a really mild spring, so I’d hoped that the summer would be mild too. No such luck.

I’d been hoping for a crisp apple tea, but it’s more like apple pulp.
I think next time I’ll need to steep it for a shorter time, and see if it brightens it up.

drank Carol by Lupicia

Farewell, Carol!
Its a natural progression, a tea I once loved very much, but have started to pale on in recent years. I don’t dislike it, at all, but my interest has faded.
But it will always be tea that is a pleasant memory for me.
Sipdown!

I decided to open my last package of this today, and of course it’s going to rain and not feel very spring like. Timing!
I was once completely enamored of this tea, and while I still like it, I’m not as sad as I thought I would be over the fact that this is the end of it.
But I will try to slow down and enjoy this today.

It’s going to be a long day- I’ve the first rehersal for the new play I’m in, and I could not sleep last night, so I am dragging this morning.
Ugh.
Help me, oh cup of life-giving nectar! Ease me into reality with your sweet kiss!

Shakespeare?

Rosehips

Not this time! A modern comedy!

It’s one of those weeks that is going to be busy. I have an audition tonight, a board meeting tomorrow, I teach a class Thursday night, and, on top of it all I’m congested and my stomach is a touch upset.
Woo.
So, tea is absolutely essential in these situations. Gimmie this mug!
One of these days I’m going to learn how to relax. Not today, mind you, but one of these days.

Whew! March was a whirlwind, and I don’t know that I posted at all. Whoops.
Life is still going to be busy, but I have no intention of letting my tea logging getting away from me again.
I’ve cracked into my final tin of Carol (a moment of silence for Lupicia….)
I’m going to miss this blend. It’s a candy like, silly sort of blend, but I’ve always really enjoyed it.
Oh well.

I have quite a bit if you’d like more, Rosehips. I think you can also put a phone order of it to their Hawaii store.

Kittenna

Let it be known that Carol has coconut and goes bad. (I had the misfortune of drinking a teabag with rancid coconut). Just FYI.

derk

Welcome back, Rosehips.

So I am sick, in a play so wildy busy, in my busiest period of the working year, it’s pouring rain, and over the weekend the nice young man I had been seeing and I split. (A nice split, no one angry. Our lives are just in very different places. I wish him all the best, and am in no way angry, I’m just sad and I miss him.)
So nice tea with a spoonful of honey today. I am going to be a nice to myself as possible.

Shae

Sending you lots of love. This is a lot to go through all at once. I’m glad you are practicing some self-care and self-love today.

gmathis

Sorry all the glums have hit at once. Praying for you.

ashmanra

I am so sorry! Hugs from across the miles, and I wish I could have you over for tea. Prayers for you today.

Jlvintagelove

time for mani/pedi & warm home baked cookies? =)

Rosehips

Thank you all. You are all the best.

Evol Ving Ness

Gah! Sending hugs and well wishes and seconding the need to generous self-care.

And sipdown!
This was never my favorite blend- I found it veered too easily into bitter, which is unfortunate.
I actually tried it with a splash of milk, something I almost never do, and found it very agreeable. But, as I almost never have tea with milk, this blend is probably not the breakfast blend for me.
Still, very nice to try!

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.
