1681 Tasting Notes
Due to my impending new job, this is the last Thursday that I’ll be waking up extra early, and going to work at 6:30 a.m. My need for quick cups will greatly reduce!
I had just enough of this lovely, comforting blend, to content me this morning. Its still earthy, with a hint of savory sweetness to it. Very good blend.
But now its a sipdown, and its going to be out of my cupboard for a while. I’m on a ban, you see.
Farewell, Capri! Until we meet again!
Backlogged from last night.
I made myself a huge mug of this last night.
I was hopeful, at first, as there were a lot of chips in the bottom of the bag, which I hoped would increase the eggnog flavor. Alas, it was not to be. The whole cup of tea passed without much of an impression.
Oh well, its gone now!
I’m not sure why, but I went into this tea thinking I wasnt going to like it. I have no idea why I thought that, but it somehow was in my mind that this would be bitter. Huh. No idea.
The smell is gorgeous! Instantly evokes French Toast, in all its buttery, cinnamon slathered glory! I was instantly soothed in smelling it.
Its taste is less intense than the smell is, but it was really nice. It had a buttery quality that I enjoyed. I’m going to like drinking this, I think.
Whew, the Thanksgiving weekend was busy! And I got sick right in the middle of it, which is no good.
Yesterday I was feeling mostly better, though, and donned my bonnet for the Dickens Faire, a Ren Faire type thing for Dickensian London, which I love very much. And this year we did high tea at Cuthberts, the tea shop in the faire! The tea is only ok, but I love anything that comes with scones, and its just so much fun.
However, today, while my body feels fine, my voice is completely gone. I can croak and honk, but thats about it. Its rather funny, actually.
I had some of this for my morning pot. Its a warm and wintery blend, and I love it a lot. Its discontinued, but I see that Peets new company, Mighty Leaf, has come out with its own version of this. I bought some, and will be doing a side by side comparison very soon!
Tea of my lunch time. Its colder today, and I really wanted something warm, and something to prop me up for the afternoon of box lifting I’m about to do.
I’m a little sad that Peet’s is doing Mighty Leaf instead of their own blends, but hey- I’ll take tea where I can get it.
I got this more because its familiar to me than because I particularly like it. Its not flawed, I’ve just had much better vanilla blacks before.
Now, onward, to more box arranging!
Oh its been a hectic few days. Soooo hectic.
I officially got the job I applied for, and got my official start date, and gave my notice at the current job.
I have seriously mixed feelings. On one hand, its time to move on, and on the other, I’ll miss this place. I really like my boss, and I think he’s feeling around as sad as I am.
Plus all this newness is freaking me out. I’m a worrier, by nature. I always survive the changes, but I’m always worried about them.
I’ve got a lot to get done in two weeks.
