1296 Tasting Notes

So lately, when I can’t decide what to have, I pick up the likely teas and smell them. I was thinking a winter tea, but I picked up this one and the smell hit me, and bingo!
I really, really like this. You can taste the squash, not just the pie spice. This is lovely on a cold day!

Della Terra does “desserts” well.

drank White Christmas by Lupicia

These tiny Lupicia tins are so cute, and so perfect. Its a good amount of tea to try, albeit in sachets instead of loose. Its good to have a bit to play around with, and test the opinion, but I don’t get overwhelmed with it all.
I’m really getting the hazelnut today. Its nutty, dark, and rich. Today I have not managed to coax out the fruitier flavors, but I’ve got a couple more sachets to experiment with, so we shall see.

Feeling a little under the weather tonight. This tea has got lots of healthy bits in it, so maybe it will help starve off any serious illness.

I usually have more time on Wednesdays to drink tea, but not today! In a rush, so a quick cup. This is my go to quick cup. Its impossible to screw up, basic, strong, and the flavors are delightful.
Onwards!

Went to bed with a headache, woke up with a headache. Ugh. No fun at all.
So, I need a good strong tea to get me awake. This is it!
A rich, malty, wintery tea, with a touch of spice and a hint of citrus. I like it immensely.

Aww, not fun. :(

There is a very modern sweetness too this. Not an old fashioned, sugary sweetness, but something crisp and cool, and a little unexpected. It makes it much more than a mint tea, with the flavors running around and making themselves hard to identify.
I have a headache, and ate too much dinner, but this tea has helped take the edge off. Good!

Monday. Urgh. And I think this will be a long and difficult week. Bleh!
Today this has got a little, almost chocolate note in it. I did some chocolate sprinkles, so maybe its that?
I’m almost done with this, and it won’t be a reorder. Its good, there are just better versions!

I’m glad to hear about this one. I was tempted to order it, now glad I snagged others instead. I wonder if they will have a sale at some point again in the near future. I am kinda obsessed with their S’mores atm. :)

drank Carol by Lupicia

Morning yoga completed! Whew, that’s harder than I imagined. That’s good! I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.
Movie with friends this afternoon, but first a cup of tea and a few tea cookies, which is delightful.
Carol is good, sweet and fruity, more a spring or summer flavor than a Christmas one, in my opinion, but whatever!

Stephanie

yay yoga!

Isnt tea wonderful? I was laying in bed, contemplating the world, and how much I’ve got to do, when I remembered tea. Tea got me out of bed, and now, after my first cup, the stuff I need to do seems exciting and good!
I picked up this in the Black Friday sales, and I’m glad I did. Creamy, subtle, with a single sparkling citrus note, and a warm earthiness to it. Its grand.

Yay! It motivated me to get up too. :)

I’m up early today, as I’m an emergency fill for one of my fellow staff. I’m happy to help out, even if it is early on a Saturday morning!
I’ve been ignoring this one, which is not fair. Its a decent tea! Its problem is not within itself, but the fact that I’ve had better versions of this blend elsewhere. I’ve got better vanilla mint-y blends in my cupboard.
Its not you, Peppermint Bark, its me.

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.
