1323 Tasting Notes
Ordered this as a sample, as its nearly fall, and a little apple cinnamon tea could help make it colder, yes?
Yes? No? Drat.
It smells lovely, a perfect balance between cider and tea, but it brewed up much milder than its scent.
I wish it was more robust. It was pleasant enough, but not particularly flavorful.
In other news, my interview went well! She seemed to like me. There are more interviews to go, so we shall see!
Due to an very odd and somewhat distressing set of events last night, I did not sleep well at all.
This is a problem, as I have a job interview ish thing today- lunch with a lady who needs a personal assistant. So I want to make a good impression and not be a tired mess. Ugh.
Two things will help! Concealer (the wonder makeup), and tea.
Forget my sipdown attempts today- its all about the classic, beloved teas. May this delicious fruity cup lead me through the day triumphantly.
Three cheers for the sample pouches from Harney and Sons! I love that I can cheaply add a few very good sized samples of a tea I haven’t tried yet, and I’m mad for the sensible packaging. A resealable sample pouch? Count me in. Especially when the samples are generous enough for a few cups.
I’ve heard good things about this one, so was very eager to get my hands on it.
I’m enjoying this. Its a subtle fruity flavor, with a lovely aroma. I imagine this would be spectacular on a cool spring morning.
Its enjoyable now, too. I’m glad I have more to play around with.
After months of no tea buying, I finally snapped and ordered a ton of teas. Heh, eeek!
But I am optimistic, and wanted to get some of the autumnal flavors in, getting an early start on that, so I grabbed up some beloved fall flavors, and also a few classics.
And, in my cupboard, Paris is a classic. Its fruity, without being a fruit salad, and a seasonless flavor.
I am very happy to have it back in the cupboard! And now, on to yoga.
I am so ready for fall. And the fall collections are starting to come out! I’m excited.
The weather is refusing to cooperate, of course, but still. I am dreaming about my sweaters, and this, one of my favorite autumnal teas, helps with the fantasy.
Its been a serious day at work as well, so a beloved tea was a great tea to start off with.
Is it cold yet? Weather report says 95, so no. Grrr.
This weekend I went with some friends to see HMS Pinafore, which I’d never seen before, and is deeply silly, and Mr. Holmes, which was a really good movie.
Makes Monday all the harder, after such a fun weekend. Boo, Monday!
But so far its been pretty productive, and I always enjoy the first pot of tea of the week.
I’m really going to miss this blend when its gone, as, alas, it is no more. Its a wonderful winter tea. Perhaps I should pause in drinking it until its cold again?
I am working my way through my stash of this, and am always hopeful that its going to be better than it is.
My hopes are now, as I move to the bottom of the tin, that I’ll get more tea, and a bit less flotsam and jetsam. I love additions to tea, and like floral, but this is just too much. Too many addtions! And they don’t seem to be helping. Frustrating.
