1492 Tasting Notes
I have written one thousand notes on Steepster! Hooray!
I know this is small potatoes for some of you, but I’m quite pleased. Steepster has given me such a lovely community of tea drinkers, and has given me the gift of a million new teas to read about, think about, and drink! Here is to another thousand notes!
On this rainy morning, nothing but Boston would do. To me, this tea is the essence of autumn, a gorgeous cup of crispness, mixed with a subtle mellow, that just feels like autumn incarnate. And one of my favorites, so it had to be the tea for today.
Aha! I triumph over the freelance work! Hooray! I can turn it in and get paid, which is lovely. More money for tea. :)
I brewed this up as a post work reward. And I must say, this is not what I thought of when I thought of chai. I expect chai to be richer, fuller of flavors and with a thicker mouthfeel.
This is, sadly, none of those. I really like the idea of a vanilla caramel chai, but I don’t think this is is.
But many thanks for Ost for letting me try this!
Alright, the morning shift is done. Now for some online trainings, freelance work, and my Nanowrimo writing.
Whew! Tea required.
This really doesn’t taste like pumpkin to me, which is always a disappointment in a pumpkin tea. It does have nice spice flavor, and a good dash of sweetness, but its hardly the cup of pumpkin pie that I always hope for. Almost done. That’s good, as I have yet more tea incoming.
Fortunatly my stomach has calmed down considerably this morning. The three cups of ginger tea I drank last night certainly helped, I think.
This morning its raining! Hooray! My favorite weather is rain, by a long shot.
The base of this tea is coming out extra strong today, but I can still find the vanilla and almond in it.
An excellent quick cup, as I’ve got to run out and go to work.
Ooof. I have an upset stomach, it won’t stop churning and gurgling. Very unpleasant.
This is a job of Ginger tea! This is, I think, just ginger in a sachet, and its really good. Gingery warmness. And so, so nice for an upset stomach. I think this may be what I drink for the rest of the evening.
My stomach is actually calming down, since the first cup, so maybe the tea is helping!
This smells amazing in the sachets. Very light and peachy. Lovely smell.
I’m a tiny bit fuddled still by whites teas. But this is nice. The peach as not as intense as it smells, but its there, floating through a warm cuppa tea. Nice!
Thanks Ost and thank you for the second sachet as well. I’m eager to give this a second try.
