1121 Tasting Notes


There is a very modern sweetness too this. Not an old fashioned, sugary sweetness, but something crisp and cool, and a little unexpected. It makes it much more than a mint tea, with the flavors running around and making themselves hard to identify.
I have a headache, and ate too much dinner, but this tea has helped take the edge off. Good!

Monday. Urgh. And I think this will be a long and difficult week. Bleh!
Today this has got a little, almost chocolate note in it. I did some chocolate sprinkles, so maybe its that?
I’m almost done with this, and it won’t be a reorder. Its good, there are just better versions!


I’m glad to hear about this one. I was tempted to order it, now glad I snagged others instead. I wonder if they will have a sale at some point again in the near future. I am kinda obsessed with their S’mores atm. :)

Morning yoga completed! Whew, that’s harder than I imagined. That’s good! I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.
Movie with friends this afternoon, but first a cup of tea and a few tea cookies, which is delightful.
Carol is good, sweet and fruity, more a spring or summer flavor than a Christmas one, in my opinion, but whatever!


yay yoga!

Isnt tea wonderful? I was laying in bed, contemplating the world, and how much I’ve got to do, when I remembered tea. Tea got me out of bed, and now, after my first cup, the stuff I need to do seems exciting and good!
I picked up this in the Black Friday sales, and I’m glad I did. Creamy, subtle, with a single sparkling citrus note, and a warm earthiness to it. Its grand.


Yay! It motivated me to get up too. :)

I’m up early today, as I’m an emergency fill for one of my fellow staff. I’m happy to help out, even if it is early on a Saturday morning!
I’ve been ignoring this one, which is not fair. Its a decent tea! Its problem is not within itself, but the fact that I’ve had better versions of this blend elsewhere. I’ve got better vanilla mint-y blends in my cupboard.
Its not you, Peppermint Bark, its me.

Friday. Its one of those Fridays where I’ve dragged myself through the week, and this part looks choppy as well, and I don’t have enough sleep.
I’m going to work, so I need caffine, and I just wanted this. So I drank it. Its helping, brisk and invigorating. Good.
Disjointed tasting note is disjointed.

I wanted some oolong today, so this sample that Ost sent me seemed like exactly the right thing.
This is a light and floral oolong, very pleasant. Yeah, that’s the right word for this, pleasant. It just leaves me feeling mellow and calm. A very nice tea this afternoon!

Whew, super busy today at work. Now I’m done with the morning session, and must convince myself to exercise, go to the post office and fix lunches for the next few days. Hm.
Motivation time. Tea!
Its been ages since I had this, and I’m now regretting that, as I really like it. Like Boston, but minus the almond. And, while I’m bonkers for Boston, sometimes you want something a little simpler. Bingo!
Maybe the tea will motivate me to get off my keister and get to work.

This has got such an interesting hint of pine floating around at the tail end of the sip. It bumps up the otherwise unflavored tea, which enhances it, rather than distracts.
Also, its a quick cup to brew up and to drink- important this early in the morning.

Man, its been a long day. I had lots of things go wrong, which is very frustrating. But! After work my lovely boyfriend called and said he was in a nearby tea shop, and could he order me a pot of tea? Love.
So I drank a pot of tea (a vanilla black, unknown, and now I don’t know which one), and decompressed. And it was wonderful. Tea is so fantastic.
Home, post workout, and I have youtube videos to catch up with, and my knitting to work on, and also, this tea.
I haven’t had this for a long time, and now I’m not sure why. Its really good! Almondy, sweet without making cavities appear, and I’m loving it. Perfect, comforting cup.


Your boyfriend is awesome xD


I’m fond of him. :)

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.
