1768 Tasting Notes

66

Drank my final pot of this with my breakfast today.
Pumpkin? Yes, most certainly. I get a good pumpkin flavor, and a dash of pumpkin spices.
Syrupy? Pancakes? Nope. I missed those notes entirely, not getting anything that tasted of maple, or of pancakes, for that matter. A little disappointing, that it didn’t live up to its name, but a decent enough tea.
Sipdown!
I was feeling so pleased with my sipdowns that I bought more teas. Whoops.

Yeah, I didn’t get the maple or pancake flavours either.

And this is a sipdown, folks!
I could never find the perfect point of bliss with this blend. It served its time well, if not particularly memorably, in my cupboard, but I shall move along to bolder and more distinct mint blends.

Ugh, daylight savings time.
Anyone expecting elegant prose, or poetic desciptions, well, be gone, my friends. This day has been one long session of uggggggh, as I dragged my sorry carcass around, mewing slightly and bumping into objects.
I do not like waking up early, that’s for sure.
So! Bold! Rich! Strong! That’s what I grabbed this morning. Thank you for all your help, Winter Solstice.

This morning was cold and rainy, and a warm and beautiful cup of tea was just the right thing.
It was also my last of this, and this is a winter tea to me. Its pushing up against springtime, so I don’t think I’ll get another bag of this until the autumn, but I will get a bag then, for sure.
Sipdown!

What I think I love best about this tea is the hints of honey that shine through the fruit. And it all shines against the good background of the tea itself.
Ahh, bliss.

The tea to wrap up my evening.
Its just so modern, so minimalist. Its just so impressive!

I felt like a whole mess of mint teas this evening, so I started off with this.
Its a perfectly nice mint, but not complex or particularly imaginative.
Its balanced between a basic mint tea, and something trying to be more. It doesn’t quite work that way, but it was a warming cup this evening.

I had a lovely pot of this in the morning. Its warm and the hint of citrus just uplift it, and keep it from being too heavy and dark.
Its lovely in these colder months, and as it was a rainy morning, it was glorious then.

This was awfully sweet this afternoon. Sheesh.
Nothing exactly wrong with it, just too sweet.

I don’t know why I’ve been letting my few remaining Butiki teas sit ignored on my shelf. I’ve been seeing others lament that they’ve waited too long, and I don’t want that, so its time to drink these guys.
And, with this, I may have waited a bit too long for perfection.
To be fair, its not bad, but the brandy has taken over this blend, forcing the plum to the side and the cheesecake all the way out.
Ah well.

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.
