1163 Tasting Notes
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 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.
Pleasant. I’m getting the nut, if not so much the plum or the cake. I’ll withhold judgement for now.
I’m glad that Ost has sent me a couple of these tea bags, as I have not yet formed a complete opinion. I should know better than to try a new tea on a busy morning, but I apparently never learn.
I can tell you that this is very rich and sweet, a touch of plum, a dollop of vanilla. It does feel somewhat pudding-y, and it was a hearty first cup of tea of the day.
I’ll give it an actual rating after the next cup, though.
Another tea at the boyfriends house, which is lovely, as it lets me cheat, and drink new teas, without breaking the ban!
Did you know that the Harney Tins have “effects” listed on them? This one says it sweetens me and my loved ones. Ha! Cute. Now I need to go read all the rest.
I’m not the worlds biggest fan of chocolate teas, but a chocolate mint isn’t bad at all. I won’t be bringing this into my own cupboard, I think, but it will be nice to have every once in a while, as a guest tea.
At the boyfriends today, trying to play Don’t Starve Together, which is proving a challenge. But I have tea from his well stocked tea bar!
This is actually really good. Creamy, lush feeling. I’m liking it. When I’m allowed to buy teas again, then I might get some of this.
As it stands, though, I need to be on a buying hiatus for a while, in any case.
