94 Tasting Notes

My kitty was run over tonight. I found him as I got home. He was a really amazing cat and friend. I miss him terribly.


That’s terrible, I’m so sorry!


On no, I’m so sorry!


Thank you. :(


Oh my! I am so sorry!


Oh no. So sorry to hear that. :(


Thanks. He was so awesome— one of those one in a million cats. He liked to drink tea with me and with each new cup he would remind me of his turn for a dot of cream. Our whole family is grieving.

A white pu’erh? Sounds exciting. To me it tastes like a bolder cup of quality white tea. Not grassy but sunny with a hint of fruit underneath. Not intriguing though. I think perhaps more experienced white and pu’erh tea drinkers would appreciate this more than I do.

This is a very herbaceous tea— aroma is juniper and thyme. Lemon balm helps to balance the flavor, and it really does taste as billed, “a walk in the woods.” Once again a very intellectually interesting tea from AU. What I am realizing is that it doesn’t hit the notes that I am looking for in a black tea— what I am missing is the tea itself. I haven’t found any of the AU teas uninteresting but have only reordered one flavor (Staring at the Sea). I think AU has a great concept and will definitely check out their fall collection, so we’ll see.

Very very floral, jasmine dominates. Almond remains confined to the aroma. First steep leaves my tongue feeling unpleasantly fuzzy.

Second steep still too floral for me… not my cup of tea.

This sounds like something that would be fun to make!


I should send you the rest of it!

I have been meaning to try their teas… BUT… I may have over 7lbs of tea… then again, I do drink steep about 30-40g a day :)

Finally broke into this one and YUM! What I love is that it is butter and almonds without being too sweet. Tastes like walking into my favorite French bakery. So happy!

Flavors: Almond, Butter, Pastries

drank Vanille by Dammann Frères

Hmmm this is a nice vanilla black, and I haven’t had a tea from DF yet that I don’t like, but it doesn’t stand out as memorable. Other DF flavors, especially those with red fruits and Bourbon (wow so good!), have spoiled me and set a very high bar for DF. I have noticed that I don’t tend to appreciate straight vanilla teas as much but vanilla bean is my favorite ice cream, so I am always surprised.


My husband loves this one, he says it tastes like a vanilla cookie to him.


I really wanted to love this one! :(

Many different versions of me, like unfinished stories. Now embracing relaxation and especially tea
