1318 Tasting Notes


It is 101 out there today. Bleh! Cue the weeping.
This cup is very floral, but fortunately I like floral. And the earl grey base makes for a really interesting cuppa. I enjoy this very much.
And now I need to quit putting off doing the dishes….

It was hard to say goodbye to my class this morning, and hand them over to the new instructor. There may have been tears. They may have been from me.
Its going to be a weird day.
I promised only teas I really like, and I’m sticking with it.
This is the last of my pound of Tower of London that I bought. I can’t believe I drunk a whole pound of this tea. And, you know? I really like it still. I find it a honey touched cup of fruit and delight.
I might take a little break from it, but it will be returning to my cupboard very soon.


A pound of this tea? :O How long did that take you?


Aww, I hope you’ll feel better about it soon. That must be very hard.

That’s impressive that you still like it after an entire pound.


It took me since December to do! And I’m surprised that I still like it too. But I don’t think I’m going to buy a whole pound again….


Heh heh. I buy this one by the pound, too. Also their Vanilla Black.

Its going to be a hard day. Its my last day teaching my much loved morning nutrition class. Its been given to a new instructor, and I’m heartbroken. I think its going to be rough, as I really love my students.
I’m going to only drink loved teas today. Its the kind of day when you just pull all the beauty you can out of your cuprboard and pour it into your cup.
I’m glad I have some beautiful teas to have.

Tea is such a comfort. Man, I’m so sorry it’s your last day teaching that course :( I’m sure something new and even more awesome will appear on the horizon to take its place. /hugs

Dear weather,
Its September. I should be taking out my sweaters, and looking at my tights, and generally getting cozy.
Its going to be 102 today. Come on, really? Please? Please? I’d like to wear at least one sweater before October.
Plus, the cold makes drinking teas all that much better. I don’t feel ready for the autumn teas yet!

Sami Kelsh

Seriously. I miss sweaters so much. IT’S NOT FAIR.


It’s 64 and cloudy here. I am enjoying my hoodie! Two days ago we were having highs in the 90s so this is AWESOME.

Terri HarpLady

61 is St. Louis, suppose to get down to 45 tonight

Short Sorceress

I’d gladly trade you, our high today was 47


Come see us in the Midwest! I’m just across the state from Terri—it’s damp and refreshingly gray. Extra blankie on the bed tonight!


I’m so there with you!

So I teach a nutrition class, a couple of times a week, and the one I teach on Saturday morning is being given to another instructor. The class is small, and the thinking is that a new teacher might grow the class.
I’m devastated. I love my class, they’re fantastic, and I’m really upset about being taken off it.
Its gonna be a tough week. I’m going t be sad.
I’ve got some bright side ideas, but I’m not ready for thm yet. So I’m going to drink my tea, and get ready for today.


Sorry to hear about this, but keep your chin up!

I got to sleep a bit today, which was very nice, though I wish it was for longer!
Today Paris is particularly fruity, which is a lovely state of affairs. Delicious and brig, this morning.
I’m going to be ordering up some autumn teas quite soon. Any particular recommendations, out of he fall tea releases?

It could be my imagination, but I find a touch of smokiness in my cup tonight. It makes me imagine a much more smokey vanilla tea, which now sounds delicious too me. How about it, Steepster, do you know of smokey vanilla teas? And are they any good.
Maybe the smokiness is just me wishing for fall…..


By sheer coincidence, I brewed up some of this tonight, too! ;-) My new tin just arrived. Hurrah!

I’m back from my trip! I’m back to my teas! It was a very pleasant trip, but there was not enough tea, and I was very happy to return.
Of course, I need to go to work today, which is never fun, but what can you do?
I’ve got a lot to do today, so I’m having this tea. This is warm and comforting, and I really like it, and am nearly out of it.

I’m off on a trip for the weekend! I hope that I’ll have lots of tea, and when I return that steepster will have sorted out my cupboard.
Have a good weekend, fellow tea drinkers!

I woke up half an hour before my alarm clock, which is deeply annoying. I want all the sleep I can get!
Well, at the very least, it is Friday, and I’ll have a fun weekend. So its all going to be alright! I am going to get through today.
Its turning into Fall, but you wouldn’t know it by the weather. I really, really want to the cold weather. I think this tea would taste better in the cold!

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.
