1632 Tasting Notes

drank Capri by Harney & Sons
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.

Ah, but that’s lovely poetry!

drank Rose Royal by Lupicia

The internet tells me that Sir Terry Pratchett has died. As he’s the author of some of my favorite books, I’m feeling it.
I’ve got a little bit of time left in the day before I have to go to work again, so I’m going to sit with my cup of tea and a book, and be a little sad.

Ost

I heard about that too…So sad :( Meh
All the actors I grew up watching are dying and now all the authors I grew up loving and reading are beginning to die :(

Rosehips

I know. Its been a tough month for fandoms!

Ost

Really has been. :( Makes you wonder who is next. D:

Oof, what a long day.
I had a long day of work, and a good workout, and decided that, with nothing left needing doing, I should have a cup of tea to celebrate.
This is still minty and creamy and nice in the best ways.

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.

We all need some time to just sit and drink tea and veg. I don’t like feeling frazzled. Sounds like you feel the same.

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons
1632 tasting notes

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!

Oh, daylight savings time. I hate you. So, so much.

A. Men.

TeaNTees

Agreed!

I go on a grumpy tirade when it changes. People avoid me. Glad to see I have companions here. I’m not a morning person without DST.

gmathis

Drove to work in the dark. In the rain. Keep your distance. :P

Stephanie

Agreed. DST is some BS.

drank Orange & Ginger by Lupicia
1632 tasting notes

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!

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas
1632 tasting notes

Eight Candles is a tricky tea. When its good, its very, very good, rich and sweet. But when you don’t get the parameters just right, it falls flat.
I’m afraid to say it fell flat today. Grr.
Next time I get it right, I’ll pay better attention to how long I steeped it.

Ugh. Thursday morning, the time for me to get up extra early and bump into things around the house, trying to get ready.
Bleh.
I can see the bottom of the tin! Wow, am I really moving through this so quickly?

drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea
1632 tasting notes

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!

Bio

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.
