1020 Tasting Notes

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1020 tasting notes

I have written one thousand notes on Steepster! Hooray!
I know this is small potatoes for some of you, but I’m quite pleased. Steepster has given me such a lovely community of tea drinkers, and has given me the gift of a million new teas to read about, think about, and drink! Here is to another thousand notes!
On this rainy morning, nothing but Boston would do. To me, this tea is the essence of autumn, a gorgeous cup of crispness, mixed with a subtle mellow, that just feels like autumn incarnate. And one of my favorites, so it had to be the tea for today.
Hooray Steepster!


Wow, a thousand! Congrats!


Wow, that’s a lot! Congrats! :)


Congrats, keep it up! :D


Happy 1000!


w00t, super congrats!

Aha! I triumph over the freelance work! Hooray! I can turn it in and get paid, which is lovely. More money for tea. :)
I brewed this up as a post work reward. And I must say, this is not what I thought of when I thought of chai. I expect chai to be richer, fuller of flavors and with a thicker mouthfeel.
This is, sadly, none of those. I really like the idea of a vanilla caramel chai, but I don’t think this is is.
But many thanks for Ost for letting me try this!

drank Pumpkin Patch by DAVIDsTEA

Alright, the morning shift is done. Now for some online trainings, freelance work, and my Nanowrimo writing.
Whew! Tea required.
This really doesn’t taste like pumpkin to me, which is always a disappointment in a pumpkin tea. It does have nice spice flavor, and a good dash of sweetness, but its hardly the cup of pumpkin pie that I always hope for. Almost done. That’s good, as I have yet more tea incoming.

Fortunatly my stomach has calmed down considerably this morning. The three cups of ginger tea I drank last night certainly helped, I think.
This morning its raining! Hooray! My favorite weather is rain, by a long shot.
The base of this tea is coming out extra strong today, but I can still find the vanilla and almond in it.
An excellent quick cup, as I’ve got to run out and go to work.

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

Ooof. I have an upset stomach, it won’t stop churning and gurgling. Very unpleasant.
This is a job of Ginger tea! This is, I think, just ginger in a sachet, and its really good. Gingery warmness. And so, so nice for an upset stomach. I think this may be what I drink for the rest of the evening.
My stomach is actually calming down, since the first cup, so maybe the tea is helping!

drank White Peach by Harney & Sons
1020 tasting notes

This smells amazing in the sachets. Very light and peachy. Lovely smell.
I’m a tiny bit fuddled still by whites teas. But this is nice. The peach as not as intense as it smells, but its there, floating through a warm cuppa tea. Nice!
Thanks Ost and thank you for the second sachet as well. I’m eager to give this a second try.

How wonderful ,its cold this morning! I love the cold weather, its the best. And its perfect for drinking this tea.
I love Boston. I think its the most underrated of the Harney blends, mellow with a touch of warm nuttiness and a touch of sweetness. Beautiful.

I can’t get the balance of this right. I had two tea bags today, which helps, but I think I steeped it too long, and it was missing something “cider-y” about it all.
Arh. Oh well.

I have finished my writing for this evening! Hooray! Now I will work on the scarf that I am knitting. I am the worlds slowest knitter, but its coming along.
Now a nice and calm evening.
Extra strong tonight. Pretty good that way.

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia

I had not expected to experience this lovely, fruity oolong again quite so soon! Many thanks to Ost for including this in our swap.
Its a beautiful fruit flavor. Its so much like biting into a melon that is freshly ripe. Lovely.
A last breath of summer in the lap of autumn.

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.
