870 Tasting Notes

I just noticed that this is my Friday tea. A little treat to push me through the last workday of the week.
I played host to my parents this morning, whose shower is broken, so came to use mine this morning. Not a problem, I had some tea and a book and a quiet moment.
Really glad of that cuppa. This morning is already quite busy, and its not even 9 yet. Its gonna be a very full work day.
I cant wait for the weekend.

The Lupicia fruit elves have struck again. How do they get that meltingly ripe flavor in a cup of tea? In the smell of the tea? Its sheer magic. Amazingly fruity. An excellent summer green.

Wow this is delicious.
I needed a relaxing tea for the afternoon, and something light, to combat the heat.
This wonderful cup of melon juiciness is just what the doctor ordered. I’ve put it in my favorite, delicately green tea cup, and I am going to take a few minutes to relax.

Cup of the morning. This is a very dependable tea, perfect for a morning like today.
My coworkers for the morning shift were almost all gone, only me and one other, and she had to leave early, so it was crazy.
Glad to have a solid tea to help me through.

I should go to bed early tonight, as I did not sleep well last night, and I have an early day tomorrow.
So noncaff is called for.
This is decent, for a summer tea, but I when I am done I shall never get more of this, I think.

My cup of the morning. This arrived with my latest order, and while I dont actively seek out Earl Greys, I wont say no if I get it for free!
Harney, to me, is a very quiet and dignified company, and their blends are quiet and dignified as well.
This is a very good Earl. Smooth, and fragrant. My boyfriend thought it smelled floral, which I can sorta see.
I don’t think I’ll get a tin of this, but it’s nice to have every once in a while.

This was my gift from by boyfriend, and what a sweet gesture.
This is an interesting combo. The mix of blacks, the earl grey, and the jasmine, floating through the flavors. A chameleon tea, one moment I taste jasmine, one earl grey, and the next a blend of the grouping.
Not going to be a favorite, I think, but actually quite nice. A decent floral black.

Its grey and raining! That is very weird. That does not happen in the summer here. However, we desperately need it, so I cant complain too much.
A slower morning. Its time to have a rich pot of tea and some hot toast. Yum, hot toast.
This weather is making me dream about fall weather. I cant wait.

Ooo, on Sunday we had hot toast with a spread made from 1T honey mixed with 1T coconut oil. So yummy! Simple pleasures…

Lovely, wonderful boyfriend dropped by my office this morning with a cup of this and also a bag of a new tea that he’d picked up over the weekend for me. Lovely man.
This is not a great Jarjeeling, I must say. It does what it says on the tin, but thats about it. It was, however, doctored heavily by by boyfriend, who poured a lot of honey in it, so there was a sweetness at the bottom of the cup.
I like that guy. He knows me very well.

The agony of a Monday morning. I am very tired, as I was out late at a going away party for a dear friend. Its weird that she’ll be so very far away.
So I’m tired, and today its weirdly overcast and somewhat unpleasant. Come on, self. Lets do this Monday thing!
Citrus! Today its a bit bitter, but a lemon bitter, not a black tea bitter.

Bio

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.
