1485 Tasting Notes

drank Lanikai by Lupicia

I was excited when Ost send me this, as I had completely loved another of the Lupicia Hawaii teas, Loke Lani. So I was more than happy to try this, even if it did have pineapple in it. (Pineapple? In tea? Hmmm)
The first surprise is that it smells quite creamy. There is absolutely a vanilla smell to this. Awesome! I love vanilla!
The vanilla does sort of fade to the background of this flavor, I must say. Its there, but it has faded down.
There is pineapple in this, I can see the little chunks! But I cannot really taste it, or really much of any fruit flavors. It seems to be a black tea with a vanilla aftertaste, and a slight tang to it. So maybe that’s it? The pineapple lurking?
Completely inoffensive, but, for me, not particularly memorable. I’m glad I tried it!
Sipdown!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

I have Jury Duty today! I would say boo, but its always been interesting to me. I come from a family of lawyers, so I know a lot about the whole legal process, and the jury process is interesting.
Of course, it is inconvenient to have my week all ruffled up like this, but what can you do?
Well, I’ll see what happens.

I enjoyed jury duty too. I was even foreman!

drank Creme Caramel Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

Backlogged!
I’ve been wondering why I have not been drinking tea in the evenings? I’ve got so many nice herbal and rooibos blends, I should be enjoying an evening cup of tea! So I’m making a push to do that.
This was a sample from Ost, I think, and I’m really glad I tried it. Its a rooibos, which I have a hit and miss relationship with, but its well blended, with a nice caramel-y aftertaste. A really nice evening cuppa.

Backlog time!
This tea is quite a basic one. Just a black tea with lemon. Nothing very special. And yet, I must say that sometimes nothing special is exactly what the doctor ordered. I love a citrus tea in the summer time, so this will be drunk without anything resembling a problem. Not fancy, just good.

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

How do these Mondays keep sneaking up on me like this? Where do they come from? Eeeep.
It was an exhausting weekend, and though I’m not keen to be back at work, I am glad to have some nice structure again.
This remains a trustworthy tea. This can be reliably expected to be creamy, rich, and smooth. One of my favorites when you need a calming morning.

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons

Ugh. Why, body, must I wake up twenty minutes before me alarm goes off? Why?! Its just not fair.
To the tea cupboard! I’ve got myself a bunch of fruit black teas, and this one sounded good this morning.
it says autumn, but it seems like a good tea for the warmer months too.

drank Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons
1485 tasting notes

The kind Ost gave me this to try a while back, and I’m just now getting around to it.
Could Wedding Tea be the same as the Royal Wedding Tea? Maybe. I’m not sensitive enough to white teas. In fact, I know I am not. More experimentation is needed!
But the general opinion is positive. This is an interesting tea.

drank White Chocolate by Butiki Teas
1485 tasting notes

Aha! Friends, if you could see me, you would see in my eyes the madness of a woman on a sipdown spree. I am on a mission. I want things out of the cupboard!
So, I’m finishing this up this afternoon. Farewell, oh White Chocolate! You and I never really got along, through no fault of our own. Alas!
I never really got the chocolate part of white chocolate out of this. I got floral instead! Of all things!
But oh well. Its just a memory now. Sipdown!

Earliest cup of the day.
I like this, though it feels slightly out of place on a warm morning. This is a pine black, but fear not! Its just a fresh hint, not tasting like a forest floor.
It also is a good strong black tea, so its excellent for when my eyes need to be propped open.

drank Happiness by Lupicia

I got that mad glint in my eye where I was determined to have another sipdown, so I brewed up the remaining sachet of this after work, and huzzah, another tea down!
Sipdown!

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.
