Why dont I drink more of this? Its pretty good, and its the right sort of “feel” for a hot day like today. Light, refreshing. I should make it one of my tea projects, and drink it up. Especially as its going to become an elderly tea before too long.


Probably would be good iced :)


Very true!


“elderly tea”…lol!

Let me start by saying that today is, very likely, going to be miserable. Its probably going to be 100 degrees, which is unpleasant, and wrong this time of year. Not to mention that it means that this might be the only tea I feel up to drinking today. Stupid hot weather.
On the plus side, this brewed up so soft and rosy this morning, it was a delight to drink. Glug glug.
Why does summer need to happen, why? I miss my sweaters and the ease of drinking tea!


It snowed here this morning.. ; )


Spring never seems long enough. I’m just sad that the mosquitos are already out now, grr. Stupid summer!


I miss the sweaters and turtlenecks too :(

I have poured my last cup of this, and it sits before me, partially drunk.
I understand that there is to be no more of this, so this is my last cup ever. A strange feeling, to be sitting before a tea, knowing its the end.
This still remains the prettiest bouquet you’ve ever drunk, a perfumed cloud of lovely.
Thanks, Rose Violet Calendula Ooolong, for being such a nice part of my tea drinking life.


The end of this tea is just tragic. I literally cried.

This is such a lovely blend, in dry leaf form. Bright petals, and I swear I see little strips of gold. Lovely.
Its a little tricky when brewed. Its got orange, thats for sure, but the base gets bitter very quickly. For example, today I it brewed up a little long perhaps, and its a bit bitter.
Hmm. Grumble.

I am powerless when faced with a baked goods themed tea. I’d tried there Caramel Cuppa Cake, which I did not care for at all, but I found myself putting this in my basket at the store today.
I love lemon. Love love love. Lemon is the best. And this brews up to a very lemony color.
I can taste the lemon too, but its rather mild, the rooibos being the more forward of the flavors.
Its not destined to be a favorite, thats for sure, but I dont think I’ll have trouble drinking it, especially when its getting so hot around here. A cup of light lemon might just be the thing.

drank Vanilla by Lupicia

Between this an La Vanille, the other vanilla offering from Lupicia, this is the better. This is a tea that actually tastes like vanilla, even if the vanilla is the secondary flavor, the base being the first.
This isnt unpleasant, and in fact I’m going to jiggle my rating up a bit, but I’m not going to ever get this again. Its not the vanilla tea I have been dreaming of.

drank La Vanille by Lupicia

Ugh, no. Sorry, Lupicia, but this was dark and bitter and did not deliver the vanilla, and just no. I tried. I tried to make it work, but no.
Its gone, and its not coming back! Sipdown, and good riddance.

Bad sign when I woke up exsausted and with a headache. After work, I think I can hear a nap calling my name.
Todays steep was the familer light and fluffy cloud of rose. Good.
I’m adjusting my review. I still really like this, but it hasnt been pushing my buttons the way it used to. I dont know if its my tea aging, and not aging well, or if its me.
Still good, though, not not devine.


Ugh, I feel like going back to bed too!

drank Apricot Vanilla Creme by Tazo
1206 tasting notes

Backlogged from yesterday.
I found this in my local grocery store, and it was on sale. And I hadn’t bought any new teas in a very long time, and I could not help myself.
I think this will be nice in the summertime, and during warm days. Its light and fruity, and I swear I can smell the fuzz on the apricot.

I have to confess, I used to be in love with this tea. The tea itself was light & juicy, but the AROMA of the cup, the tea bag, & even the empty paper envelope was so wonderful! There is a local breakfast place owned by a turkish couple & their niece worked there. They had a lousy tea selection, so I’d bring a couple bags of this one, & our waitress (the niece) loved the aroma so much she’d carry the empty envelope around in her pocket, “for aroma therapy” she’d say & laugh. :D

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.
