1211 Tasting Notes
Cup at lunch time! I am feeling the vibe, from this mornings fruity Cranberry Autumn cup, to keep the fruit and black blends going. I love a fruit/black tea blend.
This is not quite as good as Cranberry Autumn, but still very enjoyable. The fruit and tea are well balanced, and this cup just tastes “juicy” to me.
And its finally cooling down around here! I drank a cup of tea and wore a sweater and did not overheat! Victory!
I brewed this up perfectly this morning. Light, but with lovely layers of tea and the sweet fruitiness of the Cranberry. Its magnificent today, and I am quite glad to have it as the a.m. cup of tea.
Work today, and I’m spending these two weeks building an outline for my NaNoWriMo novel. I’ve never done much in the way of outlines, and I think it would be good for me.
Ah. One of, if not my absolute favorite pumpkin teas. So happy to have it back in the cupboard!
So my training yesterday was out in the Napa Valley, which was so, so gorgeous, but far away from me. I want to go back for a lovely weekend, not of work training, which was boring and a bit useless, as so often happens.
But back to this tea! I was waiting for this to get back in, and I snapped it up at once. I am now surrounded by autumnal teas, which is a glorious state. I love the autumnal teas, so, so much!
I have to go to a work training today! Argh! I don’t wanna! And its going to be almost all day long, with travel to and from.
I am cross, as these are never any use whatsoever. Bleh.
Time to start getting ready, unfortunately, but I’m going to drink this gorgeous cup of autumnal glory before I go. Maybe it will make the training go well?
Tea of the early afternoon, along with some cinnamon bread. Tasty combo.
Longer than usual morning work session, so I’m a bit behind on the things I need to get done today. Must get moving!
I underleafed this today, accidently. Whoops. Still, its warm, with a bright citrus note lurking inside, and I’ve enjoyed it. Particularly good with the cinnamon bread.
This is smooth and warm and a little bit toasty.
This was a sample with my most recent Harney order, and its got all the earmarks of a Harney blend- smooth, well blended, quiet and sophisticated.
This particular blend is not really for me. Its well done, but there are blends that excite me a great deal more.
I got a lot of rooibos out of this, but very little in the way of the vanilla parfait. Too bad, a truly vanilla rooibos would be lovely.
Fortunately I don’t mind rooibos, though that’s the strongest I can say for it. Its alright.
This will be in my cupboard until its gone, but then I’m not getting more of it.
