1630 Tasting Notes
Cup of the morning, as I was away from home this morning.
I keep trying this and expecting to have cooled on this- that it wont be as good as I remember, and that never happens. I like this just as much each time I try it.
Smooth, with the vanilla and almond dancing around each other in a subtle little dance. I like it! And its so easy, with its bagged formula. So drattedly easy!
When I’ve achieved some more sipdowns, I may bring this one right back into the cupboard.
I don’t know what it is with this week, but I’ve been waking up a half hour before my alarm goes off pretty consistently. Grrr. That’s so annoying! Not enough time to really get back to sleep.
I worked a shift this morning, covering for a co worker, and it was so busy! I certainly moved this morning.
And now I need to run errands, and then I’m going out of town. Never a dull moment.
I’m going to the Pumpkin Patch today!
Its a family tradition, going back my whole life, that I always get a pumpkin and carve a jack-o-lantern. I love Halloween, so this is one of my favorite traditions.
I’m light on Pumpkin teas in my collection this autumn, so this will have to do to mark the occation!
A leisurely morning, a leisurely pot of tea.
I love this blend. Its not a bam pow cinnamon blend (like H&S’s Cinnamon Sunset), but is instead a delicate and warm cinnamon hug. Its the sugar note, and the hint of citrus, that really turn this from something nice into something sublime. One of my favorite cold weather blends.
Ahh, its nice to be home!
I had a nice weekend at the Silent Film Festival. I got to see two of my favorites, Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton, and a few other films (which I didn’t like as well). It was a fun weekend!
The only problem is that, quite frankly, there was not a single cup of tea all weekend. Eeep!
I should know better. I really should. But I naively thought that I’d be able to find something drinkable in the hotel, or the surrounding town. Ha! Nope.
So I am soo glad to be home, with my teapot, and my teas, and ooooh boy I practically drank this directly out of the spout of the pot, so eager was I to be home among the teas. Thats how you know your home, isnt it? The teas are there!
I will not be so foolish again. Tea will travel with me now wherever I go.
Good morning steepster!
Its Friday, and I could not be more glad. Its been a tough week, and I’ve got a fun weekend ahead of me, which I’m looking forward to.
Theres a silent film festival in the area, and I’ve been going for several years. I love old movies, and they have a live piano player, playing along with the film!
So thats going to be super fun. I’m excited.
Ah, Boston blend seemed the perfect way to start into this weekend. Onwards!
Ah, California. Where its almost mid October, and I’m saying things like “its cooler today, only 93!”
Grumble. I want cold weather!
I always love autumn flavors, and this is one of my very favorites. But it just doesn’t taste the same, in the crushing heat. Blargh.
Oh ye with cold weather, how I envy you!
