1768 Tasting Notes

65

Whoops, I did not mean to drop off the face of the earth like that, its just been busy!
I didn’t expect to be working this week, but got called in last minute, and have spent the whole week running around the area, subbing for people. That’s great, I need the hours, but it does rather cut into the free time. I havn’t even had time to add the teas got in a swpa from Super Starling! yet. Blah!
So, a quick and easy cup of this in the morning was what the doctor ordered. Its not the most potent Current tea I’ve ever had, but its flavors are pretty nice. I won’t argue when I find a cup of it in front of me.

drank Apricot Vanilla Creme by Tazo
1768 tasting notes

I’ve said it before, I will continue to say it as I lack the power of new and original thought. This smells divine. You can smell the fuzz on the apricot, I swear.
It brews up less intense than its smell suggests it would, but its a nice enough after lunch cup.

Hadn’t seen this one yet. Sounds wonderful for summer.

Second cup was also to be a bath of warm floral tea, so I grabbed for this.
Its still very delicate, barely perceptible as a floral, but thats a quality that actually works in its favor.
This is going to be an excellent writing tea, as you don’t need to pay too much attention to it, but it goes down easy.

drank Carol by Lupicia

Its official, I’m fighting off the dreaded Summer Cold.
Bleh.
So I’m going to be pouring so much tea down my gullet. Its going to be a very tea heavy drinking.
I really like this sweet fruit and rose blend. It was a nice way to start Summer Tea Fest 2016.

I am fighting the dreaded summer sore throat. Bleh. I don’t wanna be sick! Especially when its the absolute hottest days of summer out there.
So I’m using a precious bag of this, one of my favorite mint teas, to help sooth the throat and go on about my routine.
Lets hope it helps!

drank Mulled Wine by DAVIDsTEA
1768 tasting notes

This has been languishing in my cupboard for an almost unforgivably long time. So it was time to roll up my sleeves and drink a mulled oolong.
My opinion has improved since the first time I had it. Its still not exceptional, but the mulled quality is real, and pleasantly warm on the palate.
I’m not ready to adjust my rating yet, but we’ll see how further brewings go.

I’ve been working from home today, and I’ve got a lot of work done, and a lot of tea drunk!
I decided my second cup of the morning would be this. I haven’t had it in ages, and I was interested in what I’d think of it again.
And I think its still a decent enough floral black. Nothing spectacular, but solid, and pleasant to drink.

I have a mighty hankering for lavender today. Its a strong flavor, one I associate more with autumn than with summer, but its been cooler lately (read, 87 degrees), so I’m risking it.
Bold, powerful, a real wake-up kick in the mouth. Again I feel compelled to say that I cannot believe this is an Earl Grey, but hey.
I enjoyed it a lot this morning.

drank Forever Nuts by DAVIDsTEA
1768 tasting notes

Every time I think I’ve finished my last sample packet of Forever Nuts, I find that I was wrong, and I unearth another. I swear my kitchen is growing them now.
There is certainly nothing wrong with Forever Nuts, it actually hits the spot when I’m in a particular flavor mood, and I thought I would sip down another pink tea in my collection.
I think I’ve got the sipped down. I think. Just when I’m sure its gone, another cupful falls out of the clear blue sky…..

Well, color me surprised.
This was sent as a sample in a past David’s order, and it lived, ignored, in my samples bowl, for quite a while. But tonight I am determined to make a dent in the tea collection, and so out it comes!
And it smells amazing. Like totally a sweet strawberry parfait with a creamy yogurt sweetness.
As happens sometimes with David’s blends, the smell is richer than the taste, but its actually a really pleasant fruit infusion. I’m enjoying this cup way more than I thought I would. Well done, Davids!

Oh man, I love this tea. I’ve been hoarding the small bag I picked up last summer in Canada because rhubarb. Are you having it hot, or iced? I’ve only done it as a cold brew, but nom.

Evol Ving Ness

One of my favourites too.

Rosehips

I had it hot, but I can see that it would be a great coldbrew too!

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.
