2797 Tasting Notes
Another one of the blends that I used to be absolutely, head over heels in love with, and now think it’s just okay.
What is happening to me? Am I (gasp) growing up in my flavor likes? What is this?
Not to say this is in any way unpleasant, but it no longer sends me into raptures. It’s just a nice enough cup of tea.
Still, the flavors are right for the season, and what are the holidays for if not for consuming things that are a little sweeter than you expected them to be?
Another tea that my memories of it are a little more enjoyable than my current experience. I dunno, it’s just not what I remember.
But, today I woke up with a headache and I thought the only thing that might help was cinnamon. Absolutely no idea why I thought that, it’s not like it’s an old family recipe or anything, but it sounded good.
I still have the headache, but I had a cup of tea, and that a better state of affairs.
My experience with Davids tea this year is that I don’t seem to find it as flavorful as I used to. Every year I’ve found it a little less so.
I loved this tea and its pepperminty goodness, but this year I’m finding it a little bland and dull, which makes me sad.
Maybe the next cup will have more pep to it?
I’ve been drinking this at work, where it has done very well. I like this blend, but I don’t love it, and doubt it will be a repeat.
Its the sort of breakfast style blend that would really be better with milk and sugar, and as I almost never drink those, it’s not quite my thing.
Still, always happy to try new teas!
Goodness, but it’s been a very busy week.
In the last week I have-
1. Gone to the hospital because of severe and unexpected neck pain (I’m fine!)
2. Worked a full week
3. Done the last full weekend of the play I am in
4. Started two new knitting projects
5. Caught the office cold. Ow. My throat.
So I’ve been drinking tea non-stop, and this has been fully sipped down.
I’m sure I’ll bring it back, when the chance presents itself. I think of it more as a spring and summer tea, and I am ready for the winter flavors.
