1595 Tasting Notes
I’ve had an amazingly productive morning! Writing done, working out done, putting in pay sheets submitted, and a great many other useful things.
Now, with most of Saturday still before me, I’m paralyzed with choices. What will I do?
I logged the amazing teas that Ost sent me. My cupboard is huge now! I’m gonna have some serious sipping to do.
So, I’ve pulled this out of my sample bowl, to try again. Come on, green tea, lets do this.
Last time I had this I did not like this, but I think I have a better understanding of how to brew greens now. I’m liking it much better!
Its still not my very favorite, but I’m enjoying it well enough now. Rating has been bumped to reflect this, and a sample sipdown!
On schedule today is a lot of tea drinking, including diving into the phenominal swap package that Ost sent to me. I’ll also be pushing for a lot of writing as well, I’ve got a lot of writing to do today. I’d like t get a bit ahead.
So there will be lots of tasty writer juice to help me along as I type. We’ve hit the second week, and that’s always an awkward time in my novels. The world has been at least mostly established, but the whole plot has not yet been established. Just much to work through!
It was one of those nights when I woke up at 3 am for no reason, and then had a dreadful rest of my sleeping night.
Friday, though! I’m excited for Friday! I’m so glad. I’m looking forward to it being the weekend, to be sure. I’ve got a lot to do this weekend, but its better than the office!
In other news, its warming up here, unfortunately. I want fall back! However this tea is still autumn incarnate, so I’ll cling to it.

Ok tea! Lets go!
I like this a lot. Its got good pumpkin flavor, easily one of the more “pumpkin” of the pumpkin teas I own. I enjoy it quite a bit.
I’ve been eyeing my cupboard, and Its time to sip down a few of the samples I have.
My sister gave me this ages ago, wit steep time and temps, but not what it is…..
Its it green? It looks like a green tea to me. However Steepster thinks its a rooibos? Hmmm.
Well, whatever it is, I’m not particularly impressed with it. Its not a strong flavor (and I do think it is a green. Maybe? It does not look like a rooibos). (maybe I have the wrong listing?)
In any case, Not impressed. Glad that this sample is now sipped down.
I like seasonality. Like, Iove fall flavors, but fall is the best time for them. And this holds true for teas as well.
Now, I’ve got most of November to drink this tea, but I’m going to work on sipping down the pumpkin and other “autumnal” teas in my cupboard. Likewise, I don’t feel like I should start the winter teas until at least after Thanksgiving.
But, on this lovely autumn day, this tea is perfect.
I like this chai, but I don’t love it. Still, its dependable.
