830 Tasting Notes


I have not been logging this as often as I have been drinking it. Still, all the ROT cans seem to be Mary Poppins things, with hitherto unsuspected depths of tea in them.
Well, sip sip sip!

drank Vanilla Black by Harney & Sons

I am having myself some elevenses! Pot of this fragrant and lovely tea, and some vanilla merengue cookies, and a quiet moment in the morning.
Done with work for the day. After this pot of tea, time for errands, and then a massive housecleaning. I never like to clean, until I’m doing then, and its all good, and the house is clean and tidy, and I feel much better.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Theres nothing wrong with Pumpkin Chai, but its not as pumpkin-y as I want. I have other pumpkin tea with much more defined notes of pumpkin.
Still, this is warming and pleasant. I dont regret buying this, but I dont know how much more of it I will get in future.
Long day ahead. Expect an awful lot of tea to be drunk!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
830 tasting notes

Today nothing but Boston would do. Its delicious. How many tasting notes can I write saying “this is really really good, go get some?” Aparently a lot!
Yum yum.
This is just fall in a cup. No other explanation. My favorite season in tea form.

Someone needs to come up with a St. Louis Blend, just because of the World Series, & all that…lol


Ha! Good point. The world series of teas!

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Yum. Really what else can I say? This is so, so good. A good tea for when I need to unwind, but as its black tea, it will still pep me up a bit.
Yum, yum, yum.

drank Pure Mint by Twinings

Minty. I am pleased by how well the mint cuts through this black tea. Its good for a bagged cup of tea.


Twinings never disappoints!

I was apparently not paying any attention, as when I was scooping out this tea I said “raisins!”
Turns out that its currants, not raisins. Still yummy. I am not familer with apple pie, so my question is, are currants frequently an ingredient in apple pie?
As usual, a tosty and tasty cup.


Hmm, I’ve never heard of or seen currants in apple pie, but it sounds pretty tasty!


Yeah, thats what I was thinking. Never heard of it, but it sounded pretty good.


I think some French apple pie recipes call for currants. It sounds like a yummy tea, too!

I woke up with a headache today, and so this is my cup before I go to work. Mellow, soothing, and uncomplicated. A good tea for this.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA

Todays steeping has made is more strawberry-like than chocolate-ish. Not a bad turn of events. Its proving to be a light and pleasant cup for my second cuppa this morning.

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.
