1217 Tasting Notes

This is a very creamy tea- more vanilla than figgy, but there was that earthy note in it. All in all, very pleasant. I enjoy it greatly.
Thanks Ost for letting me try!

Oh, I’ve got to find this! Can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to eat something cooked by Mrs. Patmore!

Maddy Barone

Of all the Downton teas, this one sounds best!

TeaNTees

I must echo the sentiments of gmathis and maddy barone, it sounds lovely!!

Ost

I have this tea and am totally willing to share in a swap. So hit me up if you’re interested-and maybe we can work something out (:

I don’t know what came over me this morning, but an unflavored tea seemed to be the thing to drink.
I had a combination of excitement and trepidation, as I had heard a great deal about this tea. Trepidation unfounded, as this was lovely
This was gorgeous, light and delicious. The flavors could have come across as heavy and solid and unforgiving as a block of solid tea. This has got a lightness to it, which makes the flavors glow.
I think a slice of lemon would do well. I’ll try that next!

Backlogged from yesterday, and I’m afraid to say, a sipdown.
How is the last cup you will ever have the most delicious? This was almost literally a nutmeg dusted custard in a cup. So creamy! So beautiful! I could cry, because now this delicate flavor is gone.
Sipdown, regrettably.

I had some pumpkin pie on pie day (or Pi day- 3/14), which made me want to reach for this today.
Still my favorite pumpkin tea- real squash flavor, and a lovely touch of citrus and spice. Good stuff.
Plus, I gotta get through these colder flavors. Its almost spring time!

I need them to come back so I can drink all their teas.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

Work this morning, and a crisis of fashion, with me changing outfits about five times before I was satisfied. I hate it when that happens.
Tired today, so a zippy tea will do. Plus, I should get the winter flavors out, as its going to be 80 degrees here today! Madness!
Oh, and happy pi day!

drank Capri by Harney & Sons
1217 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.

gmathis

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.

Maddy Barone

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
1217 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!

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.
