drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea
1492 tasting notes

This was a gift from my boyfriend for my birthday, as h knows I like a Darjeeling, and my stash is currently lacking in Darjeeling’s.
And, I’m pleased to say, this is a solid, decent cup of tea! This isn’t a fancy, bells and whistles cup of tea. Rather its good and solid and just the right thing for those days when you just want a good cup of tea.
Well done, boyfriend! Well done indeed!

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

So a few weeks ago, on my birthday, I gave myself permission to use a fair chunk of the yearly tea budget and snap up some favorites.
Ah, Cardamom French Toast, you buttery lovely cup of joy, it’s good to have you here. Its the perfect accompaniment to Sunday morning.

Fjellrev

Glad you snapped some up before it’s gone, and happy uber belated birthday if I haven’t congratulated you already!

Evol Ving Ness

Happy belated birthday to you! And yes, this tea is quite fab. I may have a cup just now myself. I wonder how much extra of this I need though. 100gr? 200gr? Before I get tired of it. Still, when I crave this one, nothing else will do.

Ahh, I’m in a good mood. It was a long and very busy week, but it went off successfully, and today is Saturday! And the best kind of Saturday, where I’m off to something fun! Plus I’m feeling ever so much better, so it is all good.
I’ve decided that now I have working tastebuds and a nose again, its time to drink something lovely.
Oh Tower of London, I do love you. Its like the subtler sister of Paris, with the black tea accented by honeyed stone fruits. Its just lovely.

Shae

That does sound really lovely. :)

I can never quite decide which one I like better – Tower of London or Paris. I think maybe that I like Tower of London just a wee bit better. Must be the honey flavor. Crazy for honey!

drank Snow Day by DAVIDsTEA

And tonight I’m having some of this. I seem to have quite a lot of it still, which is a bit mystifying. I thought I was drinking this faster!
I can’t quite put my finger on what’s lacking here, but something is. All the parts are there to be quite magnificent, but its just not coming together. Hmm.

Now, normally I don’t try new teas when I’m in a hurry, or am not feeling well. I don’t think it gives me a good impression of the teas, and I’d like to get to know a new blend more slowly than that.
But I broke the rule for this tea, drinking my first cup of it as I rushed around getting ready, and also while stuffed up.
But I have a sense that this won’t make a huge impression, even without those handicaps. But next time I try it, I’ll do it properly.

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

I also managed to kill this in the weeks coughing fits. Hot ginger water is always a nice thing to have on hand for when you feel a bit off.

Evol Ving Ness

This reminds me to sort out my sick teas in anticipation of the plague. Hope you are feeling better. Ginger is always such a comfort.

Maddy Barone

I need to add some ginger tea to my drawer. I like peppermint, but ginger would be good to have too. Hope you feel better soon.

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo
1492 tasting notes

Ahh, Friday. Its been a very busy week, compounded by the fact that I have been ill. I’m doing ever so much better, though, which is fabulous.
I’ve not been drinking anything that I like too well. My tasting has been compromised by a stuffed up head, so a lot has been drunk just to keep something warm in me.
I managed to drink up the last of this while at work, and I’m very pleased with that sipdown. Yay!

Ugh, now I’m all stuffed up and unpleasant. Ugh.
So nothing too flavorful, nothing I like too much. This fits the bill of being warm, soothing, and a bit vanilla-y. Nice on the throat and not too taxing on the nose.

Sami Kelsh

:( I hope you feel better soon!

TeaNTees

I am right there with you dear, so very stuffy! :(

Teatotaler

Do you have any peppermint tea, Rosehips? I have found peppermint tea with honey to be quite comforting when I am stuffy. Drink lots of tea and get plenty of rest – Nurse’s orders! :)

There was a time in the not so distant past when getting sample sachets with orders was a mixed blessing. On one hand, I love me some free tea. On the other, I was drinking bagged teas less and less. But now with the new job I can move into the solidly delighted camp.
I had this after lunch, and it was rich and oak-y, and didn’t require too much focus as I drank it. Good stuff!

Once again we play “you’re pulling my leg, this is an Earl Grey?”, with myself being the sole contestant.
I cannot find it. Where is the bergamot? His Lordship is unrecognizable with this much lavender in him. He’s turned bolder, darker, and altogether not like himself at all.
I mean, I kinda like him like this, but he just does not seem like the Earls I have known.

Bio

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.
