1567 Tasting Notes
I’m going to the Pumpkin Patch today!
Its a family tradition, going back my whole life, that I always get a pumpkin and carve a jack-o-lantern. I love Halloween, so this is one of my favorite traditions.
I’m light on Pumpkin teas in my collection this autumn, so this will have to do to mark the occation!
A leisurely morning, a leisurely pot of tea.
I love this blend. Its not a bam pow cinnamon blend (like H&S’s Cinnamon Sunset), but is instead a delicate and warm cinnamon hug. Its the sugar note, and the hint of citrus, that really turn this from something nice into something sublime. One of my favorite cold weather blends.
Ahh, its nice to be home!
I had a nice weekend at the Silent Film Festival. I got to see two of my favorites, Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton, and a few other films (which I didn’t like as well). It was a fun weekend!
The only problem is that, quite frankly, there was not a single cup of tea all weekend. Eeep!
I should know better. I really should. But I naively thought that I’d be able to find something drinkable in the hotel, or the surrounding town. Ha! Nope.
So I am soo glad to be home, with my teapot, and my teas, and ooooh boy I practically drank this directly out of the spout of the pot, so eager was I to be home among the teas. Thats how you know your home, isnt it? The teas are there!
I will not be so foolish again. Tea will travel with me now wherever I go.
Good morning steepster!
Its Friday, and I could not be more glad. Its been a tough week, and I’ve got a fun weekend ahead of me, which I’m looking forward to.
Theres a silent film festival in the area, and I’ve been going for several years. I love old movies, and they have a live piano player, playing along with the film!
So thats going to be super fun. I’m excited.
Ah, Boston blend seemed the perfect way to start into this weekend. Onwards!
Ah, California. Where its almost mid October, and I’m saying things like “its cooler today, only 93!”
Grumble. I want cold weather!
I always love autumn flavors, and this is one of my very favorites. But it just doesn’t taste the same, in the crushing heat. Blargh.
Oh ye with cold weather, how I envy you!
Ugh. I had some very intense dreams last night- not exactly nightmares, but certainly more intense than usual, and its left me somewhat edgy all day.
It doesn’t help that its 97 degrees today, and I’m fighting off a cold at the same time! Blargh! Colds are terrible, especially when its hot out.
So an old reliable tea is called for. I wish I had some more now!
It wasn’t a very good weekend, I’m afraid.
Firstly, I didn’t get the job I was interviewing for. I’m disappointed, but not gutted. Everyone else in my life seems to be taking this much harder than I am. (“But you’d be perfect for it!” they wail. Not perfect enough apparently! Thats ok!)
I also royally screwed up something I was supposed to go this weekend. I was supposed to feed a friends ducks, and I completely forgot until he called. Fortunately everyone survived, and he was more worried about me than the ducks, but I’m going to feel terrible about that forever.
Ugh. Maybe this week will be better.
Comforting tea today. Warm and blanket like. A bit silly, as its going to be 95 degrees today, but even so.
Its the birthday of my little niece! Hurrah, little one! Another amazing year.
I remember drinking this least year on her birthday, and so I thought I’d do it again this year. Maybe a tradition is born?
This is soft, warm, comfortable. A hug in a tea pot. One of my favorite cold weather teas. I expect cinnamon teas to be somehow bolder, but this is just the delicate warmth I really want when I think cinnamon tea.
