1626 Tasting Notes
I woke up to rain outside my window, and a beautiful day ahead of me. I’ve got my writing to do, but then I’m going to visit my best friend, and have a full day with her listening to books on tape and knitting. She’s teaching me, and I need a consultation on my project (the most basic of basic scarves).
So, as I looked at the teas in my cupboard, I decided that only one would really, really do the trick. My beloved Caramel Vanilla Assam.
I often drink my morning cup of tea while running about, preparing for the day, or watching videos on youtube. Not today. TOday I just sat with my little pot, and sipped at this beautiful blend, savoring the flavors.
A wonderful start to today. I approve.
Friday! I am so glad that its the weekend. After today, I swear I’m going to sleep for at least half a day.
I’m getting to the point when I feel its time to move out the more “autumn-” teas in my collection. Pumpkin falls into this category.
Today its extra mellow, which is lovely……….. An easy start to the day.
Part one of the day is over. Now I do my writing and wordcount for Nanowrimo! I’ve got my trusty pot of writers juice next to me.
Squash tea! I love this blend because it has an actual note of squash in it, which a great many “pumpkin” teas do not. Its delicious, and just the thing to keep me focused through all this typing I have to do.
Gonna be the next in the string of busy days that is my life. Sheesh.
Ost was kind enough to send me some of this, and I’m excited to try it. I loved Della Terras Eighth Candles, so I know I like their marshmallow flavoring.
I like it! I do get the marshmallow, and a floating note of chocolate, but I cant say I get any of the grahm cracker, which is required for a s’more!
But I’m enjoying this quite a bit. Good stuff!
I’m really glad that Ost sent me two tea bags of this, as I wanted to get another crack at this.
I’m still not sure that I’m quite sure how to brew up white tea, but I’m getting a bit more of the peach out of this cup, rather than my first cup.
I’m still not 100% sold on this. I don’t know that I’d buy it myself, but I’m really glad I got to try it, and would accept a cup if it was offered.
Thanks to Ost for this cup of springtime in the autumn. Sipdown!
Yesterday was a day of running around like a decapitated chicken.
An extra shift of work to help a coworker, a frantic day of paperwork and preparation for my main job, and then going home to work out and do my writing. I got my word count, but it was by the skin of my teeth, and then I collapsed into bed, twitching slightly.
Today I’m up early to help out my car-less boyfriend, and the usual November activities as well.
Time for Tea.
I pondered this morning, looking from one tea to the next, but I settled on this. It foolproof, to my mouth, and I needed a good tea to nudge me out into the day.
This has been enjoyable, while I had it. Once again, not convinced I actually taste any pumpkin, but the blend of spices is well balanced.
Its time to work on the fall teas, and sip them down, as my “winter” teas are starting to arrive. Heh.
I don’t know that I shall ever taste this again, as Davids is like that with some of its special flavors, but that’s alright.
