drank Apricot Black Tea by Tea Cozy
2815 tasting notes

Tea of my morning!
You know, I’m not entirely sure why I bought this. Apricots, in any form, are not really my favorite. I don’t hate them, but if given options, it would be highly unusual for me to pick something apricot.
But every once in a while, apparently, I see something apricot and I am interested.
I picked this up the last time I was in the Tea Cozy shop (which is such a lovely shop, run by lovely people!), and I surprised myself by requesting some of this.
I don’t regret buying this, but it’s not destined to become a favorite or a cupboard staple, but there is nothing wrong with it.
I find it actually more buttery than apricot-y, a bit less fresh on the palate than I expected, but not unpleasant at all.

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons
2815 tasting notes

The weather is getting warmer, so I stocked up, and then promptly drank all of, some fruity black teas. Now I’ll need to restock!
I’m not 100% sure that I’ll restock this in the next tea order, but I do like it. The trouble is I have fruity blends from Harney that I like better (Tower of London, Paris, Capri…)
But it still has a nice balance of flavors, and I enjoyed this tin.

I haven’t had this one in ages and I wonder if I should try it again. I didn’t reorder last time it ran out so maybe that is a sign!

drank Rendezvous by Tea Cozy

I never can entirely make up my mind about this one, but as it’s made it into my cupboard more than once, I feel like I should just admit it has it’s place with me.
A friend made me a bunch of dehydrated citrus slices, especially for putting into tea, so I tried one here. It was just a little too tarte, so the lemon slices will be saved for something else.

I love the idea of the dehydrated citrus slices for tea. Brilliant!

drank Tower of London by Harney & Sons

Hello all!
So, apparently, when my world is full of stress, I stop logging. I don’t stop drinking tea, of course, but I’ve been an absentee Steepster member.
Well, Evol Ving Ness posted a kind word, and summoned me back from beyond the veil. It was just the invitation I needed.
I had a tin of this that I’ve been drinking all week, and today was the last cup of this particular tin.
Oh, I am so happy to be back! I have to do a serious update on the cupboard, and I"m ready to write so many more notes!
I’ve missed you all.

Evol Ving Ness

And thanks to you, I just almost placed a H & S order yesterday.
I pulled myself away from the submit payment button in the nick of time.
Welcome back!

gmathis

Haven’t had ToL in ages, but thinking about it makes me smile. (Now there’s a tea goal—-paring your pantry down to nothing but teas that make you smile.)

ashmanra

Yaaaaay! Welcome back!

tea-sipper

I’m glad Evol reached out to you – good to see you back!

Lexie Aleah

Welcome Back! (:

drank Boston by Harney & Sons

As you are aware, things are very, very stressful right now.
Today is to involve nothing but soothing things, and I will start my day off with this cup of autumn bliss.

Evol Ving Ness

Hello Rosehips! We miss you! Hope you are ok. <3

Rosehips

Hello! Thank you so much for checking in. It was just the burst I needed to get back here. It’s time to start logging again.
Thank you for the kind check in.

gmathis

I’ll second that “miss seeing you!” Hope you have had plenty of good cuppas to keep you company in the meantime.

Evol Ving Ness

Sometimes things, even so-called easy things, are hard. I get that. Sending you big hugs.

I look forward making a H & S order at some point and comparing notes on some of your favourites. In the meantime, I am so pleased that you responded and that we will be seeing more of you.

drank Hot Apple Spice by Harney & Sons
2815 tasting notes

This year I am really digging this tea. It is Hot Cinnamon Spice touched with a little mellow sweetness, and I have been moving towards it just about every morning. It’s giving me a lively little jolt, just what the doctor ordered.

ashmanra

I am so tempted to try this one again. I had a sampke years ago. I am loving the Apple Cinnamon Chai from Cuppageek.

drank My Oh My Apple Pie by Tea Cozy

Sipdown!
This was a perfectly lovely black apple tea. I brewed it a touch too weak for my last cup (my down darn fault), but it was still sweet and apple-y and nice.
As I am in the mood for all the apple teas right now, this was well recieved.
I should be getting my next yarn and tea club shipment soon! I cannot wait to see it!

First cup of the morning, and a lovely one, too.
No tea quite encapsulates autumn as Boston does, for me anyway.
We’ve had a few cooler days, lately, which has been balm to the soul. Alas, it’s not to last, but I’ll take it while we can!

I over steeped this today. Poor tea, it’s not your fault that I was bumbling around in a haze.
The over steep brought out a layer of bitterness from the base, but I didn’t get that in my last cup of this tea, so I can only conclude it’s my fault.
No worries, I will try again!

I must have had this before…. yes? But Steepster is not forthcoming with previous tasting notes, so maybe not? It seems impossible that I have not, but here we are!
This is like a version of hot cinnamon spice that is a touch more mellow. I like it, but can’t say I have a whole lot of the apple flavor. But not that I say that, I do get a very strong sense of apple cider-ness.
In any case, so far, so good!

Bio

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.
