1162 Tasting Notes
My stomach is a bit touchy tonight, so I rummaged through the cupboard, and pulled out this.
I like this blend. Its mild, and comforting, and has the benefits of both mint and ginger, so hopefully my stomach will take those and settle down.
In other news, its heating up around my neck of the woods again. Boo! I’m ready for my sweaters and more comfort drinking tea! Come on!
Life of a California tea drinker can be a hard one….
Lupicia teas always smell amazing, both in sachet (or loose) or brewed up in the cup. This smells just like sweet green grapes.
It looses a bit of the grape-ness when tasted, but its a light and sweet tea, and I really like it. There is a faint taste of wine to it (which I suppose is technically grape), but not in a boozy way. Its very pleasant, and I’m glad to have had it!
Aha! Fistpump! Dancing in the streets. I am the slayer of teas. The queen of my cupboard. Its all gone. This tea, which was never a great cup, is now officially gone, and never shall its shadow darken my cupboard again.
I am feeling a bit dramatic this morning, but I feel there is cause.
After an amazingly long and difficult day at work, I decided that I was going to order some fall teas. I ordered a few (with more to come. Oh man), but I went over to Harney & Sons, to get some of my favorite autumn blend, Boston.
Its sold out. Out! Guys! Does this mean I’m going to have no Boston this year? No! It cannot be.
Is it too early to panic? I feel like panicking.
I hope there will be a fresh blend of the stuff soon.
Or I could order a pound of it? How nuts is that? Nuts?
I know that “normal” people would notknow the drama of teas, but you guys do.
I’ve caught the sipdown fever! I am possessed with the desire to blow through a bunch of teas that I’ve got small numbers for. Yes! I will trim and tidy my cupboard, before new teas arrive!
That said, I have not yet finished this on up. Curses. One more pot? One and a half? I can do it!
Yesterday’s tea was so much fun! The hats were gorgeous, the little sandwiches were tasty, and the scone wonderful (I love scones), and the ambiance of the tea room was lovely. It was a fun place.
The tea, at least my little pot, was a let down. I got a black currant and black tea blend, and it was not nearly as lush and fruity as I wanted.
Next time I’ll try another tea, because I do want to go back. It was a lovely afternoon.
I’m reminding myself that I promised to sip down the teas that I don’t care for very much. I’m almost done with this, I should finish it up.
I add milk to this. If I like a tea, I usually don’t add milk, but it helps me with this. In its pure form, I think it tastes a bit like cola, and I hate cola, so add some milk and call it a morning.
Its getting cold in the mornings. I’m delighted, as that’s perfect tea weather.
