1632 Tasting Notes

Hello Steepster! I’m back, after a dreadful bout of…. something. On Wednesday I got really ill, and have been slowly recovering.
My stomach is coming back up to speed, but I haven’t felt up to tea, beyond the ginger tea that I have, and today a random Milk Oolong that my boyfriend has.
I’m hoping next week to return to my tea drinking ways.

Good to have you back, although I’m sorry your stomach was attacked. I’ve been there before and it’s awful awful stuff.

I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t been feeling well. :(

I woke up this morning with a very upset stomach, which is not at all fun, and hasn’t really let up. Boo!
I’ve got my full day at work, plus the novel writing to do, plus some freelance work, so I’m trying to sooth the savage stomach with liberal doses of ginger tea. Help me out, Ginger!

Hope you’ll feel better so the day will go more smoothly!

Oh Frabjous day! Its actually cold out.
I celebrated instantly, by pouring myself a big mug of this, my ultimate autumnal blend, and sat breathing in its amazing aroma while cuddled up in a robe.
Its added a lovely glow to the whole day, while I joyfully tromp around in tights and a coat, and even though its been a challenging day at work, theres a sparkle in the cold air, that cannot be dented.
Oh I love fall. Its the best.

But thats how it goes. I’ll prevail!

Backlogged from Halloween!
Gosh its been a busy weekend. I was running non stop, what with a Halloween party, a house guest, a work training and the start of Nanowrimo. Its an odd day when a Monday is a relief.
Pumpkin chai! Not my favorite pumpkin blend ever, but I needed a pumpkin tea on Halloween, and this is all I had. So there we go.

I’ve been greedily hording this since last December, as I love it. But now with the winter just around the corner, and the possibility of a new can, I should work on sipping this down!
Creamy, minty, delightful.

Its only 9:30 in the morning, and already about four things have gone very wrong on the day. Plus I’ve only had about six hours of sleep! Sheesh.
So I defaulted on one of the teas I really like. I’ve been doing that a lot lately. Hmm, I’ve got to remember to sip down some less impressive teas.
Ugh, off I go.

Tea of the afternoon, quickly before off to the second shift at work.
Its a perfectly nice oolong, but I never get the vanilla ice cream experience out of it. Its softly green, with a note of savory vanilla in the background, but I’m not getting the scoops of ice cream that I expected to have.
Ah well.

This is one of those teas that is useful to have in the cupboard, for the mornings when you just need to drink tea, not to pay too much attention to it. Kandy is strong, but quiet enough to stand in the background of my mind, while I’m too busy bumping into things in the morning.

Nope, not a muffin. Its a fruit blend. Its got a sharp tartness, not unpleasant, but even a little muffin like.
I can smell cinnamon in the pouch, but none in my cup, and that knocks it down on the fall flavors meter.
Its not unpleasant, but I don’t find anything special about it.

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.
