917 Tasting Notes

I think I hate this tea. I was trying to be generous, and think that I only dislike it, but I really feel like this tea is weird, unnatural, and unpleasant.
And yet I insist on sipping it down. What up with that, eh?
But we are not there yet. I may yet change my mind.

Its been a very wild and long day, and I am exsausted. I had this this morning, which was lovely, and I could do with another cup now.
Is steepster working properly yet?

First day of September! And its going to be one hundred degrees today. Oh well.
I get today off of work, which is wonderful. I’m going to read a lot and go try out my new gym, which has a swimming pool. I cant wait to go swimming!
This is a sipdown. Its been pleasant, Citrus Blend, but I think that you and I are through. It was nice while it lasted.

The last day of August. Unbelievable.
Well, I’m ready for September. Tights and sweaters and the proper tea drinking temps! I am ready. I’ve been dreaming about squash.
However, I will savor the summer teas in my cupboard, and so, for that, I’m drinking this lovely cup of melon goodness.
How come melon candy is not a thing in the U.S.? I would think it would be a natural combination.

Well, I’ve seen watermelon candy but yeah that’s different… :)

I get some candies at my local asian grocery store that taste EXACTLY like this. PS- YES BRING ON THE WINTER SQUASH! :)

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

It was a long day yesterday. An Anime convention, which was fun, and then, unexpectedly karaoke. I’ve never been before, and I cant honestly say that I want to go back. It turns out, its drunk people all yelling into a microphone, off key, to some truly strange selections of songs.
Ugh.
I’m the stay at home with a book and a cup of tea kinda person, though I should try new things every now and then, to see if I like it.

Argh! Only a time for the shortest of tasting notes. I’m off to an anime convention, so hello, world! Tea is really good! My cupboard is still disordered!

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

I’m waking up in the darkness now. Its starting to be fall, even if it is not cold yet.
Its gonna be a really long day, so I’m taking a moment with this really nice cup of tea.
This particular incarnation is in sachets. A year ago, the loose and the sachet tastes exactly the same to me. But I’m now aware of the difference. What a difference a year makes!
The sachets are not bad, but the loose is, of course, better.

This darkness thing sucks! It used to be that I wouldn’t notice it until October but I’m really noticing the shorter days already. I also just ordered some more Paris (loose) yesterday!

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

I had a really hard day. Frustrating, long, and I was near my wits end for a lot of it. Work is hard, and I’ve got more and more responsibilities. Most of the time I can handle it, but sometimes it kinda wears you down.
But, I came home to find that a hat I ordered had arrived, that Steepster had ordered itself, and that I had a cup of ginger tea.
I love ginger. When out to sushi I eat up all of my ginger, all of my boyfriends ginger, and all of the ginger they will give me. So I found this tea in target I could not resist.
And tonight, its warm and spicy and is making the day just a little less bad.

Steepster still seems to be having one of its little fits. It always emerges improved, but things get rather disordered in the process.
So, if anyone ever reads this, then I’m saying that I’m burning through this at an impressive rate. Its very citrus-y, a lemon tea and an earl grey mashed together, almost. I’ve been enjoying it as a summer tea.
I cant wait for the fall collections, though.

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.
