1780 Tasting Notes

drank Gingerbread Cookie by The Tea Spot

So I’ve been mindlessly sipping on this at work for a while now, and today marks my last sachet (I am determined to sip down, as I’ll probably have some Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping to do).
Its rooibos, I’m afraid. There a hint of cookiness to it, but its not particularly gingerbread. Just fine, nothing special.
Oh well, another sipdown!

For some reason this smelled like bubblegum to me today. At least in the sachet. The hibiscus flower, maybe?
I really have to say that green/white blends are just not for me. They always turn bitter on my tounge, and are just never what I want them to be.
This is my final sample of this, and I’m glad to see it gone.

Pumpkin tea week continues!
This is a nice, but unremarkable pumpkin pie blend. Its flavors are pretty standard, and while I’m not whacked over the head with the sensation of pie, it is a nice cup.
Alas, no pumpkin tea currently in the cupboard makes me sing with full pumpkin delight. I’ll have to settle for pumpkin contentedness, I suppose.

Goodness but its chilly in here. We’ve finally got some cold days, and my boss has not yet turned on the heat. Brrr.
So I’m staying close to my cups of tea, clinging to any warmth they can give me.
This one is a taste of spring on this foggy day. Its so fragrant, so very spring like. And the warmth is doing a body good.

drank Choco-Mint Truffle by The Tea Spot

Killed this off this afternoon, as an accompaniment to a post-lunch shortbread cookie.
Its been a good work tea, nice without demanding a lot of attention. That’s the sort of tea I can really get behind as a work brew.
It was nice, but I won’t be seeking any more out.

drank Pumpkin Spice Chai by The Tea Spot

My morning pot of this came out bitter again, which is making me go hmmm. It smells so good! Why cant it taste as creamy as it smells?
I’m going to try it next with a very light steep time, and see what that does.

drank Coco Chai Rooibos by DAVIDsTEA

You know those teas that you have in your cupboard that you’re just sorta afraid to try? And it doesn’t really make any sense as to why you might be in that sort of mindset, and yet you keep putting it off?
That’s me with this guy. I somehow let the “spicy” idea of it throw me, and am only now getting around to trying it.
It does remind me of a chai, more than anything else. I’m not the worlds greatest drinker of chai, but I do generally like the flavors. This seems to be chai but without the black base.
Its not exactly the flavors I would automatically go for, given that I don’t think of chai as being a “restful flavor”, and I always think that rooibos are supposed to be restful.
I have a few more cups of this, and can certainly give it a go!

A free sample! Oooh, but its been a while since I had one of those. Its exciting, in a way.
Or, it would be, if I wasn’t so disappointed.
I don’t see anything theoretically wrong with this tea or its flavors, but its just so weak in my cup. It reminds me very strongly of their apple cider tea, which is also weak sauce.
Ah well, at least it was just a sample. Sipdown!

So as soon as I saw Santa’s Secret on the DavidsTea website I snatched some up. I love that blend! And its nearly the holiday time.
However I didn’t pay attention to what samples I’d be getting along with it, but nothing bad has come from them.
I’m not at all sorry to have tried this again, though its sooner than I expected. Its very light and juicy.
But with the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales coming up soon, I am merciless to samples, and a sipdown must occur!

I spent most of the weekend asleep with a headache (bleh), but I’m up to fighting fit at the moment.
I think its another pumpkin/autumnal teas week for me, as its Thanksgiving week here in the U.S.
I got a lot of those flavoring crystals things in this scoop, so I was hoping that it would bloom to amazing proportions again, but alas, its a mere shadow of its former self. I hardly get anything that could be pumpkin, and nothing that might be defined as "milkshake in it, I’m afraid to say.)

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.
