1809 Tasting Notes


Drat! I have now caught the cold that I’ve been frantically dodging for the last few weeks. Bleh.
So lots of minty hot water with honey is called for, and I’m pulling out the big guns with this lovely mint blend.
Help me, oh tea!

drank Candied Chestnut by The Tea Spot
1809 tasting notes

This is all finished now, and I must say that it was not memorable.
I do not particularly like either white tea or chestnuts, but this came free with some other teas I got, so I decided to give it a go.
And it was just entirely weak. I never even got a hint of chestnut in it, which is too bad, and the white tea base was very weak and bland.
Ah well, a sipdown now!

Tea of yesterday morning. So rich! So smokey and layered and ooph, this is good on a rainy morning.
Contented sigh.

A couple of years ago, when I first came in contact with this tea, I was completely besotted. I found it to be creamy and wonderful, and enjoyed my tin with enthusiasm.
Well, almost without me noticing, my enthusiasm for this tea has waned. I am no longer besotted, and now have an elderly tin of this to drink.
Its not bad. I don’t hate it or anything, but I’m not particularly impressed anymore. Its no longer a creamy dream, and I’m not quite sure if its because its an elderly tin, or if my tastes have just changed.
Either way, its now only ok. Thats alright, I can deal with ok.

Hate when that happens.


Ugh. Blech. Maybe you can blend it with another tea?

drank Napa Blanc by Lupicia
1809 tasting notes

Why do I still have this? Its never really wowed me, despite my hope that it would. I think Lupicia does fabulous fruit flavors, but this is just not ringing any bells.
I had a cup of it this afternoon, as a break from cleaning and working, and it was easy to drink, but the flavors have paled considerable since I got it, and its time to drink it down.

drank Bungalow by Steven Smith Teamaker
1809 tasting notes

Ok, grocery shopping done, work out complete, a work training for another job done, and I am now working on my freelance work. Time for tea!
A pot of this is my trusty companion today, and its proving very bold and lovely. I think I’ll add some honey to it next time, to really make it sing.


Bungalow is my favorite Darjeeling blend. I believe that I’m going to make myself a cup right now. Might add a bit of honey myself – Great idea, Rosehips! :)


Good for you, being so productive! I’m still in my PJs.

drank Apricot Vanilla Creme by Tazo
1809 tasting notes

This is now all sipped down! Hurrah!
It was nice to have this in my cupboard, with its amazing apricot scent. I truely liked it, but I didn’t love it, so I don’t think I’ll buy it again.

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA
1809 tasting notes

Ahh, home with my own teas. Hurrah!
Its a day off my normal 8-5 job, but I’ve got a lot of freelance stuff to do today. Its going to be fairly busy! Lots of tea to help me through the day.
I know that this is perhaps an overly sweet tea, and I know its not everyones thing, but I’m glad to have it in my cupboard. I love this sort of blend, it just makes me happy. And on a cold morning like today, it suits me well.

drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea

Happy New Year, Steepster!
I love New Years, I love the thrill of new years, new goals, and new adventures!
I plan on drinking lots and lots of tea this year. I’m starting with a cup of this, which my significant other has on hand, but is not my favorite. No worries, I have lots of wonderful tea waiting for me in 2017.

Whew, but I’ve been busy over the last week and a bit, which means no tasting notes. And I’m also just off a course of meds that I was instructed not to drink too much caffine during. So, that limited my tea drinking, I’m afraid.
And I’m back with a vengeance!
I’ve been drinking this at work, as it meets all my best criteria, of bagged, boring, and ignorable. And I have finally killed it!
I will not be buying this again, it was a huge disappointment.

Huzzah! It is gone!

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.
