1320 Tasting Notes


My stomach is starting to settle down. I’ve managed to eat, and, even better, I’m actually feeling hungry (which I was not feeling previously), and I’m feeling up to black tea.
Autumnal flavors! I am drinking a lot of autumnal flavors. Its most excellent.
I do love this tea. I’ll have plenty to take me into winter time as well, but its a great fall flavor.
I’m excited for the day off tomorrow. Lots of tea to be drunk!

Hello Steepster. Sorry I’ve been absent. Its not been my intention. I’m just very busy, and a little ill. My stomach is really choosy right now, making me loose my appetite, and not wanting more than a few bites. I didn’t want to try my usually beloved black tea, this morning, so my boyfriend rummaged and found some mint tea for me.
Good old mint tea. Does wonders for a jumpy stomach, and always makes me calmer. Its powerful stuff.

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons

I was rather unwell with a stomach unpleasantness yesterday, and only attempted a mild black tea this morning.
Its still delicious, but I fear it rumbled the stomach a little more.
Well, I’m doing better. Hopefully more tea tomorrow!

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA

I love a good fruit and black tea blend, and this caught my eye as an attractive tea. I like all the flavors, so I thought, hey, why not.
Holy Fruit, Batman! This has got huge chunks of fruit in it, and they seem to take a lot more room than the tea itself. It smells delicious.
I like it! Its a sweet tea, with a crisp fruitiness to it. It has a creaminess to it. I can’t find vanilla listed as an ingredient, but it seemed to have it.
Not the strongest black tea, but I liked it. A great autumnal tea.


I agree that this seems to have vanilla in it. Love it.

The scarf continues on apace. My friend who is teaching me the knitting, provided me with this cup of tea, which was a delightful side to all the knitting.
I’m going much faster now, but still have so much to learn.
This tea remains a solid, basic, hard to screw up cup of tea. Hurrah.

I woke up to rain outside my window, and a beautiful day ahead of me. I’ve got my writing to do, but then I’m going to visit my best friend, and have a full day with her listening to books on tape and knitting. She’s teaching me, and I need a consultation on my project (the most basic of basic scarves).
So, as I looked at the teas in my cupboard, I decided that only one would really, really do the trick. My beloved Caramel Vanilla Assam.
I often drink my morning cup of tea while running about, preparing for the day, or watching videos on youtube. Not today. TOday I just sat with my little pot, and sipped at this beautiful blend, savoring the flavors.
A wonderful start to today. I approve.


This is such a great tea. I crave it all the time. Reminds me of drinking tea with my Dad when I was a little girl.
I am also re teaching myself to knit – so relaxing! Project #1 is also basic scarf – just knit & purl! So far, so good.


What are you listening to? It sounds like a wonderfully soothing combo! I can’t knit but I (think I could still) crochet if I thought my yarn would be safe from curious cat paws.


My friend is “showing” me the Dresden Files, which are so far a very funny treat. She’s a good egg, sharing books and tarn and time. She has to hide her yarn from her cat!

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA

I am seriously beginning to pale on this tea. Its a perfectly fine Rooibos, and the spices are a nice touch, but its just not exactly what I wanted. I want more pumpkin! I want more cheesecake!
As it is, I have a spicy rooibos. Sigh.
Well, that’s alright. Not every tea is bound to rock my world.


I was seriously disappointed with this one, really hoping for a creamy pumpkin. ah well, maybe next fall they’ll reformulate

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Friday! I am so glad that its the weekend. After today, I swear I’m going to sleep for at least half a day.
I’m getting to the point when I feel its time to move out the more “autumn-” teas in my collection. Pumpkin falls into this category.
Today its extra mellow, which is lovely……….. An easy start to the day.

Part one of the day is over. Now I do my writing and wordcount for Nanowrimo! I’ve got my trusty pot of writers juice next to me.
Squash tea! I love this blend because it has an actual note of squash in it, which a great many “pumpkin” teas do not. Its delicious, and just the thing to keep me focused through all this typing I have to do.

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas
1320 tasting notes

Gonna be the next in the string of busy days that is my life. Sheesh.
Ost was kind enough to send me some of this, and I’m excited to try it. I loved Della Terras Eighth Candles, so I know I like their marshmallow flavoring.
I like it! I do get the marshmallow, and a floating note of chocolate, but I cant say I get any of the grahm cracker, which is required for a s’more!
But I’m enjoying this quite a bit. Good stuff!
Thanks Ost!

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.
