Feeling a little virtuous, for getting the word count in. Now, to suit up and go to work.
A soothing cup of this, to wind down from the mornings cups.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
947 tasting notes

I could not help it. My second pot of this rainy morning had to be Boston.
Its serving as my pot of “writer juice” this morning. I like to write with a cup of tea on hand. I find it helps me think.
I love almond. Last time I asked about almond perfume, and I am buisily hunting down the suggestions. I just bought myself a bar of almond scented soap, as well, which is lovely.
Sip, sip, type, type.

TeaBrat

I’ve never hand this one, it sounds like I should!

Rosehips

I highly recommend it. :)

TeaBrat

I just placed an order with Harney because I wanted a stump teapot and got a sample. :)

Rosehips

I hope you enjoy it!

drank Lapsang Souchong by Nina's Paris
947 tasting notes

I woke up this morning to discover that it was raining. And cold! Perfection, that is some of my favorite weather.
I’ve been hording this little sample from Nina’s for just such a day, occationally picking it up and smelling it. It smells deliciously of smoke.
Wood smoke in a cup. Its amazingly true to the sent. I can see how some people might taste bacon in it. Or how they might find it too smoky.
I do not find it too smokey. It is strong, but I really like it. I have almost zero experience with Lapsang Souchong, but I will probably explore more of this. Is good!
A perfect cup for a cold rainy day.

Sil

i like a splash of maple syrup to smokey teas ;)

Mint. I do get the mint out of this, but the rest of the title is not making an apperance in my cup. Where is the chocolate note, eh? Bah.
All said, its not dreadful or anything, I’m just not impressed. Not a lot of this, as I have a tiny amount. Still, it will be good to have it all sipped down and to move on to other non caf desert teas.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
947 tasting notes

Ah, Paris.
I feel cheated out of my weekend, and wish very much that I could go right back to bed and sleep for a while. Ah well.
Work, writing, and all that good stuff today. Paris tea for me.
I’d never had this loose leaf before, and I am amazed. I loved it in the sachet, but there is that undeniable depth of the loose leaf. Yum!

keychange

Hmmm, so you can really tell the difference eh?

Rosehips

Admittedly not all the time, and Paris is as close in the sachet to the loose as I’ve ever seen. Maybe its the amount of leaf? In any case, its tasty!

keychange

Wonderful to know! and yes, I think controlling for leaf amount will always make you at least feel as though there’s a difference.

TeaBrat

The Decaf Paris is good too.

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA
947 tasting notes

Hmm, my second brewing of this is not meeting with approval. Today there was a faint coffee after taste. Bleh. I will play around with the steep times, to see what I can come up with.

I have to go to a work training today. I indended to wake up earlir so I could do some writing and some excercise, but I didnt managed to do that. I slept. Thats actually lovely, but it means that I’ve got a lot of work to do after the training.
So this cup for me today. Its turning out that I am running low on this too. Oh no! Gah, I’m running through so much tea.

drank Birthday Cake by DAVIDsTEA
947 tasting notes

My trip last week into the city included a stop at Davids Tea. It was the stores birthday, and if I spent $20 I got to pick out a sample pack of teas in celebration. Well, needless to say I easily spent the requisit dough, so I could pick one. I picked the “Happy” pack, as it had teas that I hadnt tried, and that sounded interesting.
This is one from that box. Boy, this smells like that cheap bakery sheet cake, with the icing an inch thick. This is not a criticism, as I love some of that stuff. Its like a funfetti tea.
The taste isnt as intensly sugar and vanilla as it smells, but its pretty nice, actually.
The sample of this was very generous, so I have some cups of this in my future. Dont mind a bit. Maybe a restock in the future, too.

Fjellrev

Awesome deal!

Writer juice today is this cup of Paris, as I chip away at the ol word count.

Terri HarpLady

I’m way behind on my word count…11,000 or so. Hopefully gonna get in at least one session today, maybe 2.

Rosehips

Best of luck! I know how those words can lag.

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.
