1157 Tasting Notes

drank Rose Royal by Lupicia
1157 tasting notes

Is anyone else ever nervous about writing the very first tasting note for a tea? Just me?
I’m one of the ones who like rose teas, and I think that Lupicia does really nice floral teas. I like the balance of tea and flower, and they often add in other bits of flavor, which make for really nice blends.
I opened this up, and took a deep breath. Lovely, rose, with a hint of some sweetness and a sparkily quality…. wait. That’s just like Champagne Rose, another blend by Lupicia.
Huh. Yep, the package says roses and black tea and sparkiling wine…. is this Champagne Rose, just under different cover? I honestly think it might be. Or at least, its so similar to be almost indistinguishable…
That’s fine, on a flavor standpoint. I really like Champage Rose, so I don’t mind having it around. But maybe I’m missing something?
The upshot is, a lovely rose tea, even if it seems like a dupe.

Sipdown! Goodbye, sweet winter tea. I will meet your creamy mintiness next year. Farewell!

drank Figgy Pudding by Della Terra Teas

This is still really rich and earthy, a good depiction of figs. I’m enjoying it a lot, though I’ve never actually had a figgy pudding, so can’t speak to its authenticity.
But, its going to be spring soon enough. Time to get sipping on the ol winter and fall flavors.

Why, tea, why? You smell so lovely, so creamy and rich! Why do you turn into a subpar cup of warm water when brewed up? Where did all those chocolate chips go? Argh.

Good grief, its been a long day. I’m the only staff in the office today, so I’m getting piles of stuff to do, and 384 envelopes to stuff. And no, thats not an exaggeration. Argh.
I started this morning off with this lovely tea, and I’m glad I did. Mild, subtle, but still fruity and delicious. Its good stuff.

You aren’t stuffing red-pockets with chocolate are you? I was told someone at head-office was filling them in preparation for us to serve with tea lol

Its been a very busy few days, and I wanted to unwind this evening. Tea of choice!
So sweet and creamy. I feel a bit spoiled, drinking this, like a real and decadant treat. I’m enjoying it a lot.
Put my feet up, listen to some music, read my book. Yes.

drank Celebration Tea by Harney & Sons

Tea gulped down this morning, while zooming around the house flinging on clothes, and preparing for the work shift I covered for. Gah! I hate waking up that early, but I like helping out my coworkers. Still, zoooooooooom.

You know when not to try a new tea? When you are trying to work out your eligibility for insurance, that’s when. Do not try a new tea while you are trying to do this, as you will get frustrated and then forget all about it, but, if you are lucky it will still be warm when you remember it.
Sheesh.
Pleasant. I’m getting the nut, if not so much the plum or the cake. I’ll withhold judgement for now.

Hope you’ll be able to sort out the insurance headache!

Thursday mornings are my days when I need a tea in a tea bag, so I always keep some on hand.
Today I am getting the hint of pastry that is promised by the tin. Huh, I wonder what I did…..

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Tea o’ the morning here. Rich, with a hint of almond and a waft of cranberry. One of my favorites, for sure. And a great choice for this busy day, as it turns out.
Its great to have failsafe teas.

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.
