drank Earl Grey Supreme by Harney & Sons
1055 tasting notes

My cup of the morning. This arrived with my latest order, and while I dont actively seek out Earl Greys, I wont say no if I get it for free!
Harney, to me, is a very quiet and dignified company, and their blends are quiet and dignified as well.
This is a very good Earl. Smooth, and fragrant. My boyfriend thought it smelled floral, which I can sorta see.
I don’t think I’ll get a tin of this, but it’s nice to have every once in a while.

This was my gift from by boyfriend, and what a sweet gesture.
This is an interesting combo. The mix of blacks, the earl grey, and the jasmine, floating through the flavors. A chameleon tea, one moment I taste jasmine, one earl grey, and the next a blend of the grouping.
Not going to be a favorite, I think, but actually quite nice. A decent floral black.

Its grey and raining! That is very weird. That does not happen in the summer here. However, we desperately need it, so I cant complain too much.
A slower morning. Its time to have a rich pot of tea and some hot toast. Yum, hot toast.
This weather is making me dream about fall weather. I cant wait.

Ooo, on Sunday we had hot toast with a spread made from 1T honey mixed with 1T coconut oil. So yummy! Simple pleasures…

drank Organic Darjeeling by Tazo

Lovely, wonderful boyfriend dropped by my office this morning with a cup of this and also a bag of a new tea that he’d picked up over the weekend for me. Lovely man.
This is not a great Jarjeeling, I must say. It does what it says on the tin, but thats about it. It was, however, doctored heavily by by boyfriend, who poured a lot of honey in it, so there was a sweetness at the bottom of the cup.
I like that guy. He knows me very well.

drank Citrus Blend by Harney & Sons

The agony of a Monday morning. I am very tired, as I was out late at a going away party for a dear friend. Its weird that she’ll be so very far away.
So I’m tired, and today its weirdly overcast and somewhat unpleasant. Come on, self. Lets do this Monday thing!
Citrus! Today its a bit bitter, but a lemon bitter, not a black tea bitter.

Afternoon tea. It smells better than it tastes. And it does smell wonderful. You will have to imagine a contented sigh.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Needed another cup of tea before I figure out whats for lunch, and heading off on my errands. Paris in loose leaf is better, but I like having the sachets around for just such a quick cuppa.
I love this stuff.

Sunday is lovely. Its the only day of the week that is completely off for me. (Unless I take on some Freelance, which I do sometimes….), but today its just relaxing and calm. I’ve got a lazy day scheduled. Theres a book to read, a farewell party for an old roommate tonight, and perhaps a craft fair to attend. That sounds like just the right sort of Sunday.

Tealizzy

That sounds like an awesome Sunday! Sundays for me end up being chore days, but maybe I’ll fit in some time to read my book (with tea, of course). ;)

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1055 tasting notes

Backlogged from last night. I had a quiet night, reading the tea mystery (Which I am reading for the tea, not for the mystery. I actually do read mysteries, but this is obviously a “cozy” which is more about atmosphere than crime. Which is fine, I need that every once in a while).
I finished my huge bag of this. However I already have a new tin of it. I like having Comoro around. Its a good standby.

drank Nutty Almond Cream by Tiesta Tea

I am spending my evening with a murder mystery (this particular book is called Death by Darjeeling, and I confess I picked it up because its set in a tea shop), and I needed a cup of tea to go along with it. Possibly several, quite frankly.
This is a great “I’m not paying attention” tea. I can steeping for an unspecified time, and its fine. I can be absorbed in the story and it does not demand a lot of attention. Its very good for that.

Shadowfall

Lol. I tried to get into that series awhile ago and never could, despite the major tea influence in it. Just not that big into mysteries. Though I’ve been considering giving it another shot.

teaqueen

I love this tea, even though it’s one of the strangest concepts ever… There’s no actual tea in it! But it is delicious. And the longer you let it steep, the better it tastes.

Rosehips

I swear, everyone makes a version of this, but I enjoy it too.

gmathis

I’ve read most; the Tea Shop mysteries that are in the first half of the series are better. (Later in the series, the lovely tea descriptions start falling off and the dialogue/plots get pretty improbable. I hate not liking a book!)

ashmanra

I have five if the books and forced myself to read three, no more. But I have made a lot of the recipes in the back, and they were the best part!

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.
