1405 Tasting Notes

drank Pumpkin Patch by DAVIDsTEA
1405 tasting notes

The trouble with the David’s Tea pumpkin offerings is that I do not get any pumpkin out of them. They’re warm and spicy, and this one has some nice flavors, but none of them is pumpkin too me.
This is too bad, I’d love more pumpkin in my tea. I love pumpkin. But it will do.

Tea of the early afternoon, along with some cinnamon bread. Tasty combo.
Longer than usual morning work session, so I’m a bit behind on the things I need to get done today. Must get moving!
I underleafed this today, accidently. Whoops. Still, its warm, with a bright citrus note lurking inside, and I’ve enjoyed it. Particularly good with the cinnamon bread.

This is smooth and warm and a little bit toasty.
This was a sample with my most recent Harney order, and its got all the earmarks of a Harney blend- smooth, well blended, quiet and sophisticated.
This particular blend is not really for me. Its well done, but there are blends that excite me a great deal more.
Sample Sipdown!


The organic version tastes weak to me, almost like a decaf.

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo
1405 tasting notes

I got a lot of rooibos out of this, but very little in the way of the vanilla parfait. Too bad, a truly vanilla rooibos would be lovely.
Fortunately I don’t mind rooibos, though that’s the strongest I can say for it. Its alright.
This will be in my cupboard until its gone, but then I’m not getting more of it.

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons
1405 tasting notes

It rained here last night! It’s grey and damp out there (though it has, sadly, stopped raining).
But I am much more able to enjoy my cup of tea!
Second ever cup of this, and my opinion remains positive. Its Boston’s little sister, not as nutty, but just as sweet. A gorgeous autumnal flavor.


I had both of those today! Raining here this morning, too!

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
1405 tasting notes

I have decided to dedicate the evening to drinking tea, knitting, and watching youtube videos.
I’m learning to knit, and I’m working on a scarf. Its taking forever, but I’m pleased with it, generally.
Tis is a bit woody, and I don’t really get pumpkin out of this. But it is warm and “autumnal,” and I’m glad to have tried it.

My stomach was a little upset after lunch today, so I went to the local Peet’s to use a free cup of tea card I had. This is what I got, and its done well on the settling of the stomach.
I’ve had this before, and, as then, am a little conflicted. I like all the parts, but something just seems a touch off about it, when I have a cup.
Further study is obviously required.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1405 tasting notes

Its going to be a long day. Three work shifts (for three different jobs), and I’m already tired.
Its supposed to be cooler today. I live in hope that this is so! So its time for the most autumnal of teas, this glorious creation. Boston, never leave me. Of course, I have a full pound, so I doubt that it will. Ha.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1405 tasting notes

Its good to be done with the work day. My headache was not at all helped by the wonkiness of the work computer, and the complete lack of tea in the office. I mean, there is never tea in the office, but sometimes I feel it more keenly.
To help the headache I made a curried squash dish, which was not curried enough for me, so next time more spices and garlic and ginger. Almost always my cooking mantra, more garlic!
I wanted a desert cup, and this is the standby. Also I was not in the mood to clean up after rooibos, which can be good, but is always messy.


This one is one of my favorites from Harney … and it still surprises me that it’s a decaf.

I woke up with a headache. Bleh. Usually sleep gets rid of headaches, but there are too many irritants in the air, I guess.
I suspect this is going to be a long, long day. Better start my tea now.
Very light and juicy this morning. May it help my head!

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.
