1768 Tasting Notes

It was not a good day. The job is overwhelming, I’m falling behind, and my head hurts.
No fooling around, just one of my favorite cups of peppermint tea, and a blanket to cuddle in.

Hope things improved to just “whelmed” soon :)

I killed this off this morning, and it was ok.
I never really warmed up to this one, so I’m not sorry to see it go.
Sipdown!

drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA
1768 tasting notes

My history with Earl Greys has not always been harmonious. In fact, there was a period when I distinctly disliked his lordship and all his teas.
Now, with time, and a lot of tea tasting under my belt, I’m working on getting reacquainted with his lordship, and there are some versions of his teas that I quite like. I’ve been picking up varieties, and giving them a shot.
And, as its the first day of spring, I thought I would try this one today!
I get the bergamot in the first sip, and then the fruit crowds in at the end of my sip.
I was getting a little bit of soapiness to the flavor, which I’ll have to see if it continues, or is just a quirk of my mouth today.

drank Chamomile Lavender by Paromi

Wait, wait, wait a minute. A rooibos, chamomile lavender blend? Well, color me interested.
And…. eh. Its nice, but I wish the rooibos wasn’t part of it. I feel like the woodiness is dragging the flavors down. Bleh.

drank Bungalow by Steven Smith Teamaker
1768 tasting notes

I love the weekend. When I want a pot of tea and a few little tea biscuits in the afternoon, why then I can brew a pot and bring out the cookies!
So I decided to brew this up, as its been in my cupboard for a while, but untasted. And now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long, as its lovely. Its rich, but with a honeyed smoothness at the bottom, which makes it go down an absolute treat.
Highly recommended.

Darjeeling perfection! Bungalow is one of my all time favorite, must have, can’t imagine life without teas! It’s become my usual Sunday afternoon pot of tea. I can’t wait! :)

drank Rose Royal by Lupicia
1768 tasting notes

Ah, this is one of the first truly warm days, but not yet the suffocating heat of the full summer. A lovely weather.
So its time to break out the lighter teas. This just sang to me today, the blend of rose with the sweet sugar. Its just so light, so bubbly, so refreshing.

drank Winter Solstice by Mighty Leaf Tea
1768 tasting notes

Friday. Thank goodness, its Friday.
I am quite stressed at work, and today is going to be massively busy. I’m worried that I won’t be done with the larger projects I’ve been given. Argh.
I wish I was feeling more confident in this new job! I’m dying to feel calm and detached when I come into the office, but right now I’m tense and stressed beyond belief.
Which means I’m not sleeping well. Which means that I’m not sleeping well. Which means tea.
This is my last bit of this, so its a sipdown.
I really like this blend. Its gorgeous in the cooler weather. Now that we’re pushing against spring, its time to drink it down.

drank Red Rocks by The Tea Spot
1768 tasting notes

This was a Christmas gift from my sister, and as it is now, er, March, I thought I should get down to it!
And…. hmm. Er, its rooibos. Its somewhat woody, and a touch creamy and, er, that’s it?
Sigh, oh rooibos. Will I ever get the hang of you?

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Bring out this creamy, dreamy pool of vanilla loveliness for tonight.
There are days you just need a steady cup of something delicious, so I’ve grabbed this.
Ahh, simple, and tasty.

drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea
1768 tasting notes

I had a cup of this after work, to help ease me out of this day. I really like this! Its got a really nice balance of flavors, and I suspect would take good with milk (which is odd for me to say, as I almost never add milk to tea).
Ahh, sometimes a nice Darjeeling is just what you need.

Do you have a local retailer that carries Ahmad? The only times I’ve seen it locally were just potluck at TJ Maxx.

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.
