1776 Tasting Notes

Ahh, Friday. Its been a very busy week, compounded by the fact that I have been ill. I’m doing ever so much better, though, which is fabulous.
I’ve not been drinking anything that I like too well. My tasting has been compromised by a stuffed up head, so a lot has been drunk just to keep something warm in me.
I managed to drink up the last of this while at work, and I’m very pleased with that sipdown. Yay!

Ugh, now I’m all stuffed up and unpleasant. Ugh.
So nothing too flavorful, nothing I like too much. This fits the bill of being warm, soothing, and a bit vanilla-y. Nice on the throat and not too taxing on the nose.

:( I hope you feel better soon!


I am right there with you dear, so very stuffy! :(


Do you have any peppermint tea, Rosehips? I have found peppermint tea with honey to be quite comforting when I am stuffy. Drink lots of tea and get plenty of rest – Nurse’s orders! :)

There was a time in the not so distant past when getting sample sachets with orders was a mixed blessing. On one hand, I love me some free tea. On the other, I was drinking bagged teas less and less. But now with the new job I can move into the solidly delighted camp.
I had this after lunch, and it was rich and oak-y, and didn’t require too much focus as I drank it. Good stuff!

Once again we play “you’re pulling my leg, this is an Earl Grey?”, with myself being the sole contestant.
I cannot find it. Where is the bergamot? His Lordship is unrecognizable with this much lavender in him. He’s turned bolder, darker, and altogether not like himself at all.
I mean, I kinda like him like this, but he just does not seem like the Earls I have known.

I can’t help but feel that I’m missing some component for this tea. I mean, it should be magnificently delicious, right? But somehow its just ho-hum. A perfectly serviceable mint blend, but not memorable or inspired.
But good on a sore throat!

Time to cut the caffine for the day. And, as this cough still lingers, I wanted something nice and soothing.
Ahh, Silent Night. What a lovely mint blend.


I made a great cough remedy tea the other day. Really soothing on the hroat. Bring to a boil 4 cups water with a sliced lemon, cinnamon stick and sliced ginger. Then let cool. Add honey to sweeten. Worked really well. Hope you feel better soon.


That sounds like such a great idea! I may very well try that.

This was sipped down on Monday.
Its a nice mint black blend. Not my favorite by a long shot, but it was enjoyable while I had it.
This is one of those enjoyable yet slightly forgettable blends. I might bring it back some time, but its not critical. I’ve got other teas to tide me over until it wanders my way again.
And heaven knows I need a sipdown with all the new teas I’ve got!


That is exactly how I feel about this. Nice, but easily replaceable by any brand really

My morning yoga class was with the gentle yoga instructor, which was lovely, as I’m still recovering from whatever bugs I had.
So this afternoon I’m organizing things in my house, and drinking teas!
This is one of the teas that my Aunt and Uncle gave me for my birthday, and also some English Digestive buiscuts, which I love. I haven’t had them since I lived in the UK, so that was a delight.
This is an interesting blend. Very layered, with a very bold flavor to it. Its quite strong.
I feel like I’m going to have to fiddle with the steep time, but I’m enjoying it!


Sounds like you’re feeling a little better though, eh? Sounds like a nice day. I’m a fan of digestive biscuits too. :)

I’ve got a lot more teas to add to my cupboard from my birthday haul, but I got the teas I ordered for myself as a present. I am now drowning in teas, and its glorious!
I hate that you can’t buy Tower of London in any loose leaf size except a pound. But for my birthday I decided to buy it for myself, especially as my sister gave me a gorgeous silver tea tin big enough to hold a pound of tea.
Ahh, hello old friend. Your fruity, honey touched flavor has been gone from my house for too long. I am glad to have you here.

Happy-making post is happy. This tea sounds delightful.

Yep, I’m either fighting off some illness, or being optimistic and am actually sick but refusing to stay in bed.
I got home from work yesterday, ate soup, and dropped myself directly into bed.
Today parts of me are feeling better, but parts still feel bad. So I’m going off to work armed with six million cough drops and ginger tea, to guzzle down all day long.
Boo. I’ve already been sick this winter! No fair!

Evol Ving Ness

Hurray for ginger tea! Feel better.

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.
