1163 Tasting Notes
It was one of those nights when I woke up at 3 am for no reason, and then had a dreadful rest of my sleeping night.
Friday, though! I’m excited for Friday! I’m so glad. I’m looking forward to it being the weekend, to be sure. I’ve got a lot to do this weekend, but its better than the office!
In other news, its warming up here, unfortunately. I want fall back! However this tea is still autumn incarnate, so I’ll cling to it.
Ok, so far today- worked morning classes.
Took and online work training-

Ok tea! Lets go!
I like this a lot. Its got good pumpkin flavor, easily one of the more “pumpkin” of the pumpkin teas I own. I enjoy it quite a bit.
I’ve been eyeing my cupboard, and Its time to sip down a few of the samples I have.
My sister gave me this ages ago, wit steep time and temps, but not what it is…..
Its it green? It looks like a green tea to me. However Steepster thinks its a rooibos? Hmmm.
Well, whatever it is, I’m not particularly impressed with it. Its not a strong flavor (and I do think it is a green. Maybe? It does not look like a rooibos). (maybe I have the wrong listing?)
In any case, Not impressed. Glad that this sample is now sipped down.
I like seasonality. Like, Iove fall flavors, but fall is the best time for them. And this holds true for teas as well.
Now, I’ve got most of November to drink this tea, but I’m going to work on sipping down the pumpkin and other “autumnal” teas in my cupboard. Likewise, I don’t feel like I should start the winter teas until at least after Thanksgiving.
But, on this lovely autumn day, this tea is perfect.
I like this chai, but I don’t love it. Still, its dependable.
I have doubled the tea bags for this, however I also doubled the size of my mug, so that could have an effect. Heh.
This is not quite actual cider, but I’m enjoying it as a autumn herbal. Pleasant enough for my purposes!
I may or may not have bought 4 new books today. Ha! I love books, and gulp them down nearly as fast as I gulp tea. So I’m sure these won’t be unread books for long (and several are books that I am desperate to read).
My only regret is that I have an actual life to live, which cuts into the ol reading time.
Mornings are hard. My bed was so soft and warm! It was a glorious place. Alas, I must go into the real world.
On the plus side, the real world has oatmeal with brown sugar and tea.
This tea is amazingly mellow. That’s not a criticism, I think any more intense would not be good. Its warming, gentle, and with a hint of bright citrus. A good thing to get me out of bed in the morning.
