1632 Tasting Notes
My body is slowly starting to adjust to the accursed daylight savings time, so I could risk a slightly “milder” black tea.
I think there are some blends by Harney that don’t get the fanfare of Paris, say, but are none the less beautiful teas. This is one of those. Its subtle, delicate, earthy with a hint of lemon sweetness and a figgy center. I think its a beautiful tea for those transition seasons, spring and fall, and is the tea equivalent of a cozy sweater. Not flashy, or even very stylish, but so warm and comforting that its a joy to have around.
Friday makes me poetic, apparently.
I keep stealing this from my boyfriends stash. I need to bring some of my own teas over to his house to drink, so I can work on my own stash!
I’ve been so, so busy lately, and its really cutting into my tea drinking, which is starting to distress me. I want to have more time to sit and drink tea!
Today is not looking much easier, either. Damn.
Its dark when I wake up right now. This is very confusing to me, and my alarm clock and myself continue to have disagreements over the time. The alarm clock wins.
But I can’t drink tea and be asleep at the same time, so I get up.
I needed a gentle tea today, so enter Cranberry Autumn. This tea is a good one for those “between times”, not really hot outside, not really cold. Just a pleasant sort of neutral day, so a pleasant and delicate tea goes very well.
I got a lot of this. I’m glad I like it!
Sigh. I forgot all about daylight savings time, and missed my morning yoga class as a result. Damn.
Did finish off this tea, though!
I like a fruit-and-ginger combination. Its quite tasty, and this was a good version of that flavor profile. Still, not going to be an immediate reentry into the cupboard. And, today its another sipdown!
Ok,despite my lovely boyfriends budding appreciation (and growing collection) of teas, I still think I should probably carry a little bit around with me, of my own teas. Maybe things that need some serious sipping down, or suchlike?
Theres nothing bad or wrong about Mighty Leaf… but they are just not the company for me. They seem to be lacking some pop!
