956 Tasting Notes
This is very strong this morning. Whew. Bu I like it! Its turned almost buttery in texture, and the taste is strong but still quite pleasant.
Friday. Its still sometimes hard to wake up, put on clothes, and get to work. Its hard, but tomorrow is Saturday, that most glorious of sleeping in days. I am excited!
So tired. Morning work went well enough, but due to poor sleep last night, I’m dragging.
Tea! Tea to the rescue.
My favorite part about this blend is the touch of lemon peel. A bright citrus snap in the warm and cinnamon depths.
Its helping a bit! Very good, as I’ve got so much to do today. Better drink this tea, and on we go.
Lessons learned with this tea-
1. I need a new ball strainer. Mine let all sorts of debris out, and float around my cup like so many merry twigs.
2. This tea is very pretty! So colorful. So many bits that I do not know what they are!
3.Chamomile, while I have a space for it in my cupboard, is not my most favorite.
4. Still, this is pretty good. I like mint in them, though I can’t tell what the flower petals were supposed to do, exactly.
Verdict- I like it well enough, but a perminant member of my cupboard? Probably not.
This morning it is cool, and the taste of this tea fills me with joy. There is absolutely no sensation quite like drinking this tea, wrapped and warm in your robe, on a cool morning.
I love fall. Its got some of my favorite flavors, and the things I like best in the world. This tea is one of them. The most underrated of the Harney blends, in my opinion.
Cup at lunch time! I am feeling the vibe, from this mornings fruity Cranberry Autumn cup, to keep the fruit and black blends going. I love a fruit/black tea blend.
This is not quite as good as Cranberry Autumn, but still very enjoyable. The fruit and tea are well balanced, and this cup just tastes “juicy” to me.
And its finally cooling down around here! I drank a cup of tea and wore a sweater and did not overheat! Victory!
I brewed this up perfectly this morning. Light, but with lovely layers of tea and the sweet fruitiness of the Cranberry. Its magnificent today, and I am quite glad to have it as the a.m. cup of tea.
Work today, and I’m spending these two weeks building an outline for my NaNoWriMo novel. I’ve never done much in the way of outlines, and I think it would be good for me.
Ah. One of, if not my absolute favorite pumpkin teas. So happy to have it back in the cupboard!
So my training yesterday was out in the Napa Valley, which was so, so gorgeous, but far away from me. I want to go back for a lovely weekend, not of work training, which was boring and a bit useless, as so often happens.
But back to this tea! I was waiting for this to get back in, and I snapped it up at once. I am now surrounded by autumnal teas, which is a glorious state. I love the autumnal teas, so, so much!
I have to go to a work training today! Argh! I don’t wanna! And its going to be almost all day long, with travel to and from.
I am cross, as these are never any use whatsoever. Bleh.
Time to start getting ready, unfortunately, but I’m going to drink this gorgeous cup of autumnal glory before I go. Maybe it will make the training go well?
