1103 Tasting Notes
Woo hoo, it’s friday night and I’m having a pina colada! I lucked out with the magical pineapple chunk to coconut flake ratio, and oh boy is this tea absolutely perfect tonight. I thin 2.5 teaspoons of tisane makes the most amazing cup!
I had a rough week, and boy – something sweet seemed like the most appealing thing in the world this morning. I realized I had this in my cupboard and never tried it! As I say in my description:
I had so many berry tea samples! I decided to combine them for the sake of simplicity. This includes Dammann Freres Paul et Virginie, Harney & Sons Paris, Kusmi St. Petersburg, and probably something I’m forgetting! :)
I am drinking it without milk, and with just a half teaspoon of sugar. WELL, if it isn’t the exact perfect thing for today. The delightful berry flavors, bit of sweetness, and good tea are lifting my mood and making me smile. Sometimes a little froof makes all the difference. :)
It’s been DAYS since I’ve had any Vanilla Comoro…which is, like, a century in JacquelineM time!! Comforting, delicious, desserty!
Big meeting today. I chose my kick a**, take names, poor but happy cousin tea to keep me focused and invigorated. I love it at 175 and steeped for barely a minute, each infusion getting a little longer. It makes this crazy-strong, puts hair on your chest beast of a tea into a little delightful pussycat!
My last sachet (weep weep weep!). Excellent spices, comforting vanilla. I had it with just a squirt of honey, and it was the perfect drink to warm me up and help me wind down. This tisane will be missed!
The only nice thing about my day today was this tea. Citrusy, zingy, and that absolutely gorgeous tea base!
My coworker asked if I could make some 175 degree water for her green tea in my kettle, so I thought I would make a tea which tastes great at that temperature too! Yunnan Golden Buds came immediately to mind. I have lost track of the number of infusions, but I’ve been drinking cup after cup since 9am (it’s now almost 1pm!) and the tea is still a sweet potato and brown sugar delight. Amazing.
Had some Dreamy Banana Creme Pie before bed last night ;) A splash of milk is delightful in this one. Sweet, dessert like. Nice banana flavor. Also I AM SO MAD that the new Cheesecake honeybush flavor from 52 teas sold out in hours!!!! Gosh darn!
Oh, oh, oh, oh what a mistake I made last night! I was freezing and I had the big one of this right before class at 7:30pm last night. I DID NOT SLEEP A WINK! It was a very delicious, citrusy, lavendery mistake, but a mistake none the less! I am going to get something herbal from now on!
I was so very CRAVING this tea this morning! Rich and smoky, yet there is an elegance and understatement to it. Quite the masterful blend, in my opinion!
