830 Tasting Notes

I am a determined person. If I have something, even if I don’t care for it, I am determined to finish it, rather than throw I out. This is, of course, somewhat nuts. I should be alright throwing out lipstick colors that are too bright, stop reading books I hate, and move along teas that I don’t like, but instead I grit my teeth and go “I will make this work. I will use it up. Argh!”
Which is, of course, bonkers.
However, that has not stopped me from trying to sip this down. I’m close! I will feel triumphant on my last pot of this.
Unfortunatly, that is not today.

I feel your persistence angst. It annoys me immensely not to like a book, a tea, or a piece of clothing that you can’t groove with after you brought it home :) (I’m finally learning to close books I don’t like.)

My little brother and his girlfriend are in town. We’re all going to a baseball game tomorrow, which will be fun, and we all had dinner last night.
My father likes to wonder where he went wrong. Of his three children, none drink coffee. None can even stand it! My sister, my brother and I are tea drinkers for life! Ha. And my dad is a confirmed old coffee drinker, so its extra funny.
But I don’t even like coffee flavored things. Nope! Bleh. Tea, please.

Signs you may be Californian- when you check the weather and see its going to be 91, and you think “its going to be so cool today!”.
Ha.
I woke up six minutes before my alarm, which somehow never seems fair.
I really like this tea. Mint and black is an unexpected but tasty combination.

Come visit us in the wilds of Southwest Missouri—unusual cold spell here and we aren’t going to top 80!

I am very tired, and need to go to bed, because its very early up tomorrow, but I had to have some tea. And I had a bit of milk left, so milk tea day is apparently a thing!
I cant say that I find that this brought much to the tea. It doesn’t detract, but its not a noticeable improvement.
Tea, and then bed.

I had leftover milk in my creamer, so instead of throwing it away, or pouring it back into the jug, I am brewing a cup, and trying an experiment.
Now, I prefer my tea black. I am of the opinion that if a tea needs milk or sugar, then its not a fantastic tea.
But, I’ve recently been drinking down some less enjoyed teas, and milk is helping. And the flavor difference in the teas I don’t particularly care for made me wonder about the difference that might occur in teas I like.
That’s a longwinded way of saying that I added milk to this cup today.
I don’t notice a huge difference here. It sweetens the almond into a more marzipan-y taste, but I wouldent say that it really improves the cup. Still, an interesting experiment!

What a good idea, this tea goes well with my vanilla week, I think I have a little left in the back of the cabinet and I still have my milk out!

Zero energy this morning. So hard to get up!
This will never be a favorite, and I wont be getting more when it is done. But I found the acceptable formula for drinking it. Small amount of tea, light steep, and milk. And usually I don’t like my tea with milk!
Well, it helped to wake me up, so that’s good.

drank New York Blend by Harney & Sons

This is from last night
I had an upset stomach, and this tea has ginger, peppermint and chamomile in it, so its perfect for that.
Last night was frustrating. One of those days where nothing seemed like the right thing to do.

After my sub par cup this morning, I wanted a proper cup. So I have cranked up the ac, made some toast with lemon curd, and poured this.
This tea is so smooth, with light and delicious layers to it. Not even a little bitter. And this pares so well with the bright aftertaste of lemon curd in my mouth from my toast. I recommend that combination!

Take two of this tea has not improved my opinion.
It claims it is a black tea, but it tastes so herbal, and medicially herbal as well. Bleh.
I am not super impressed. I had hopes for this company as it was easily avalible, so I hoped that I could find decent tea. Judging from this one, I don’t think I’ll be getting more from this brand.

It was such a busy weekend! I wen’t to the local Shakespeare company production of Comedy of Errors, which was fun, and then spent the rest of the time indoors, whining about the heat.
Its very hot. Almost too hot for tea. Gah.
This was this mornings cup, but I’m drinking one now. I’m tired, and could use a delicious cup of wake up juice right now.
And I can sleep a bit longer tomorrow. That will be delightful.

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.
