1630 Tasting Notes

I sipped this down at work yesterday. Still not very impressed by it, but the pomegranate was more distinct in the second cup.
Ah well.

drank English Teatime by Bigelow
1630 tasting notes

This is one of the bagged teas my beloved sister gave me in the gigantic tea grab bag she gave me for Christmas, and that I’ve brought for my work teas.
This is a very rich black tea, but not an especially complex one. I could drink it without paying a whole lot of attention to it, which is a good thing at the office.

Tea at the office is brilliant. I can actually try and sipdown the bagged teas which I never seem to get around to in my home life! Fab!
I’ve got to hand it to Bigelow, this was actually really pleasant. I’m not going to run out and buy a box, but I’ll gladly have a bag if it floats my way.
Its very juicy, which is pleasant on a cold morning!
Sipdown!

I’ve been pulling out bagged teas in my home cupboard, and considering them for work. They get rather ignored around here, as I prefer a loose leaf in the morning. The organization has reminded me of several teas I’ve got that I like, and have not had in ages.
Why didn’t I drink more of this last year? Its not an exceptional tea, but its a very nice and calming cup. I should try to bring it into the evening rotation more often.

My final working cup of the evening, and I did not really care for it at all.
Its pink, which is fun, but the pomegranate was a bit too tart. It reminded me of hibiscus, which is never my favorite flavor profile. Hmm.
Its fine, but I wont’ run out and get more.

Second working cup of the day.
I did not expect to like this. I’m not exactly sure why, maybe because the last tea I had from the English Tea Shop was something I did not care for at all. Hmm.
But this was actually very pleasant indeed. I found it very refreshing in the middle of the day.
I don’t get overmuch blueberry out of it, but I did get a gentle fruitiness, and the delicacy of the elderflower. Turns out I quite like elderflower!

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the ETS varieties I’ve tried.

That’s good to hear that some of their stuff isn’t bad. Never tried it but I got a friend of mine a cute ETS gift set for xmas this year. Was worried it would be an embarrassing gift.

It was the first day of tea at my new job! I got permission to bring my own teas, so as not to drink the (rather boring) things that the office provides for clients. Plus I don’t want to drain the office of tea. I drink enough of the stuff that I’d rather keep it to my own stash, so as not to make my boss go out and get more.
But it left me in fuzz this morning, trying to figure out what to bring. I’d love to bring loose leaf, but I’m afraid that it might be too messy and hard to do. So bagged it is! I’ve still got some bags, that should be easy.
So I grabbed a little sack of bagged teas that my sister gave me as part of my Christmas present. I wasn’t sure when I’d get to them when she first gave me them, but now I’ll have them drunk in no time!
I started the day with this, which was much jucier than I expected it to be. It was very light and refreshing, rather to my surprise. Goes to show that a pleasant tea experience can be found just about anywhere.

drank Winter Solstice by Mighty Leaf Tea
1630 tasting notes

It is pouring down rain today, which is so, so excited! So I decided on something warm and bold for the morning.
I’m so glad that this is the old Winter Solstice I knew and loved. I was worried I would be parted forever from it!

drank Snow Day by DAVIDsTEA

Tea of this evening.
I need a cuppa before I go and face the gym. And I need to sleep well tonight, so this is the one for me.
I wanted to really, really like this. A white chocolate peppermint loveliness? And yet it falls almost completely flat. I don’t know what it is missing, but it is missing something.

On good news, I talked to my new boss and she is totally on board with me bringing a mug and my own teas to the office! I will pick some easy and good teas to the office, and brew myself many cups in the coming days. Hurrah!

Tea of this morning!
I was very excited to have some teas from a Quarter to Tea, and snapped up some in the Black Friday sale. However I have not got around to trying any till today.
This is very pleasant. There is a real flavor of apple, followed by a delicate cinnamon. A bit like a tea/cider hybrid. It would be fab in the autumn, but its really nice on a cold morning.

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.
