drank Citrus Blend by Harney & Sons
824 tasting notes

My new teas have arrived! Hurrah!
I picked up a friend from the airport super late last night, and I am ready for a good pot of sensible tea. I chose this, opened it, only spilled a little over my kitchen floor, and brewed up a pot.
Firstly it smells very strongly of citrus. Very, very strongly. And it does not loose it when it brewes up.
This isn’t a sweet citrus tea, theres no sugar or lemonade type taste, which is actually just fine. It tastes rather like Lady Gray tea, which is the version of Earl Grey that I like the best.
You really can taste the separate citrus fruits as well, the bright lemon, the subtler bergamot, and…. orange? Is there a hint of orange in here?
The upshot is that I am enoying this.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Lemon

In addition to catsitting, my brother is in town. I hardly ever get to see him, as he lives on the other coast, and so I’ve been spending time not drinking tea, or working on my Camp Nanowrimo novel. But I banked some words earlier, so I’m on target still, at least in the writing.
I’ve bought some new teas, and I cant wait to see the new ones arrive, or to have time to actually drink them! Sheesh.
But my friend, for whom I am catsitting, will return tonight. Maybe then I can sleep and drink tea!

Done so far this morning-
Taking friends to airport.
Petted the cat.
Grocery shopping
Worked out
Ate lunch.
Now, more tea, then more errands, and then back to taking care of the cat for the evening. Sheesh. This weekend moves so quickly.
A good solid cup of tea is required. This follows those specifications. Good.
Gosh I’m tired.

I am operating on very little sleep today, but I have much to do. I have repairs to do on my car, and I must take someone out to the airport this morning.
So its time to pull out the big guns. I am going to drink this tea, one of my favorites, and not even think about the lesser teas.
And I’m not even making sense! Babbling! But what can you do?

What can you do? Drink more tea! ;-)

I am a determined person. If I have something, even if I don’t care for it, I am determined to finish it, rather than throw I out. This is, of course, somewhat nuts. I should be alright throwing out lipstick colors that are too bright, stop reading books I hate, and move along teas that I don’t like, but instead I grit my teeth and go “I will make this work. I will use it up. Argh!”
Which is, of course, bonkers.
However, that has not stopped me from trying to sip this down. I’m close! I will feel triumphant on my last pot of this.
Unfortunatly, that is not today.

I feel your persistence angst. It annoys me immensely not to like a book, a tea, or a piece of clothing that you can’t groove with after you brought it home :) (I’m finally learning to close books I don’t like.)

My little brother and his girlfriend are in town. We’re all going to a baseball game tomorrow, which will be fun, and we all had dinner last night.
My father likes to wonder where he went wrong. Of his three children, none drink coffee. None can even stand it! My sister, my brother and I are tea drinkers for life! Ha. And my dad is a confirmed old coffee drinker, so its extra funny.
But I don’t even like coffee flavored things. Nope! Bleh. Tea, please.

Signs you may be Californian- when you check the weather and see its going to be 91, and you think “its going to be so cool today!”.
Ha.
I woke up six minutes before my alarm, which somehow never seems fair.
I really like this tea. Mint and black is an unexpected but tasty combination.

Come visit us in the wilds of Southwest Missouri—unusual cold spell here and we aren’t going to top 80!

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

I am very tired, and need to go to bed, because its very early up tomorrow, but I had to have some tea. And I had a bit of milk left, so milk tea day is apparently a thing!
I cant say that I find that this brought much to the tea. It doesn’t detract, but its not a noticeable improvement.
Tea, and then bed.

I had leftover milk in my creamer, so instead of throwing it away, or pouring it back into the jug, I am brewing a cup, and trying an experiment.
Now, I prefer my tea black. I am of the opinion that if a tea needs milk or sugar, then its not a fantastic tea.
But, I’ve recently been drinking down some less enjoyed teas, and milk is helping. And the flavor difference in the teas I don’t particularly care for made me wonder about the difference that might occur in teas I like.
That’s a longwinded way of saying that I added milk to this cup today.
I don’t notice a huge difference here. It sweetens the almond into a more marzipan-y taste, but I wouldent say that it really improves the cup. Still, an interesting experiment!

What a good idea, this tea goes well with my vanilla week, I think I have a little left in the back of the cabinet and I still have my milk out!

Zero energy this morning. So hard to get up!
This will never be a favorite, and I wont be getting more when it is done. But I found the acceptable formula for drinking it. Small amount of tea, light steep, and milk. And usually I don’t like my tea with milk!
Well, it helped to wake me up, so that’s 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.
