1484 Tasting Notes

A sample I got a while ago, and was not sure what I was going to do with. I don’t drink greens very often, but when I do, I like brewing them up the old fashioned way. What was I going to do with this?
Boom! Work tea!
I’m afraid this did not leave a huge impression. Its light, with a clean citrus flavor. Pleasant, but not much more than that.

Work tea is brilliant! I am finally getting to try/sip down the bagged teas that I have. When I’m at home, I’d really rather have the loose leaf, but at work the tidiness of the bagged or sacheted teas is perfect. And I’m drinking down teas I’m not super impressed/in love with, which is fabulous.
I finished this one this morning, while working on all the things that accumulate over the weekend. Its decent enough, but not a particularly exciting black tea. This is excellent for mornings when you have a lot to do!
But I won’t be getting any more back in, and it is a sipdown!

I’ve had this twice now, and still can’t quite make up my mind as to what I think about it.
Its certainly a very nice black tea, and there is a nice pumpkin spice flavor to it. But I don’t know that I’m getting the “syrupy” or even the “pancake” out of it.
As I say, enjoyable, but I feel like I’m missing something. I’ll keep trying!

I had a long night, and I’ve got a long day ahead of me. But I have a little time to sit and savor a pot.
This is just so warm and lovely.

I recently tried this one and loved it too. There’s something so comforting about it.

I sipped this down at work yesterday. Still not very impressed by it, but the pomegranate was more distinct in the second cup.
Ah well.

This is one of the bagged teas my beloved sister gave me in the gigantic tea grab bag she gave me for Christmas, and that I’ve brought for my work teas.
This is a very rich black tea, but not an especially complex one. I could drink it without paying a whole lot of attention to it, which is a good thing at the office.

Tea at the office is brilliant. I can actually try and sipdown the bagged teas which I never seem to get around to in my home life! Fab!
I’ve got to hand it to Bigelow, this was actually really pleasant. I’m not going to run out and buy a box, but I’ll gladly have a bag if it floats my way.
Its very juicy, which is pleasant on a cold morning!
Sipdown!

I’ve been pulling out bagged teas in my home cupboard, and considering them for work. They get rather ignored around here, as I prefer a loose leaf in the morning. The organization has reminded me of several teas I’ve got that I like, and have not had in ages.
Why didn’t I drink more of this last year? Its not an exceptional tea, but its a very nice and calming cup. I should try to bring it into the evening rotation more often.

My final working cup of the evening, and I did not really care for it at all.
Its pink, which is fun, but the pomegranate was a bit too tart. It reminded me of hibiscus, which is never my favorite flavor profile. Hmm.
Its fine, but I wont’ run out and get more.

Second working cup of the day.
I did not expect to like this. I’m not exactly sure why, maybe because the last tea I had from the English Tea Shop was something I did not care for at all. Hmm.
But this was actually very pleasant indeed. I found it very refreshing in the middle of the day.
I don’t get overmuch blueberry out of it, but I did get a gentle fruitiness, and the delicacy of the elderflower. Turns out I quite like elderflower!

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the ETS varieties I’ve tried.

That’s good to hear that some of their stuff isn’t bad. Never tried it but I got a friend of mine a cute ETS gift set for xmas this year. Was worried it would be an embarrassing gift.

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.
