1159 Tasting Notes

I’m almost done with this, which is nice.
I cant get this to dance for me. I’ve tried just about everything, and I admit, this has more flavor than a few of the other S&V teas I’ve had, but I still just mostly want it gone.

TastyBrew

I’m impressed by your perseverance with this tea! I think I would have just ended up swapping it or passing it off on a friend.

Rosehips

I’m stubborn! :)

Ugh. I feel mildly unwell. Stomach troubles and suchlike. But I need to go to work today, and then have a number of other things to do.
Help tea! Some black tea, for waking up, and some peppermint, to ease the stomach grumbles.

Hope the tea helps feel better :-)

I think I understeeped this. Despite the overleafing, all I got was hot water with a hint of black tea. Phoohy.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Its a little out of the norm to drink decaf in the middle of the day, but its what I wanted.
I was astonished to find that I can get Comoro at Target, of all places. Well, I dont need to worry about restocking then!

__Morgana__

Cool. I’ll have to see whether our Target has this.

gmathis

Target? Must check!

ashmanra

Ooo, I need a bit of this as my loose pound ran out, must check Target!

Terri HarpLady

Yeah, I noticed the Target here is carrying a pretty good selection of H&S teas now.

drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris
1159 tasting notes

Its raining, and so its time for the cozy cup of vanilla caramel warmth that is Je t’aime. Ah, just right for a day like today.
But it is, unfortunatly, a sipdown. Boo! I am now out of vanilla caramel teas.
The question is, which to restock? Well, really the question is, which to restock first……

Flavors: Caramel, Vanilla

I literally cried out in dispair when my alarm went off. Its raining (yay!), and I really wanted to stay asleep and cozy in bed.
This is a morning when I feel like pouring the tea over my head might be just as useful in waking up as drinking it.
Still, I will drink it. Easier on the hair.

keychange

I had such a similar reaction to waking up this morning. ugh.

Its raining! Wahoo!
I live in the only part of the country that has not been experiencing lower than normal temps. Infact we have been unseasonably warm weather. Wahoo you may be saying. Not so. We are in a serious drought. Bad news all around.
But its cooling down, and its raining, which is beyond good. Plus I like this weather much better.
And this is the perfect tea for a cold and rainy evening. No lie.

Flavors: Vanilla

TheTeaFairy

I don’t say this very often, but happy you’re getting rain :-)

Need a second cup of tea before I go to work.
This is one of my failsafe teas. Quick, easy, tasty, and I have not managed to screw it up yet.
Excelent.
Sip sip. Off to work.

Flavors: Vanilla

gmathis

Love those forgiving, easy steepers! Haven’t had this in ages, but I have pleasant memories of it.

MoonShyne

Sounds yummy. Now I think I want one or something like it :)..putters off to look at recently acquired dessert-tea sample box from Davids to see if anything looks good.. Reading all of these reviews makes me crave so many different flavors lol.

drank Creme Brulee by Simpson & Vail
1159 tasting notes

Determined, determined to get this gone. And now I have!
To recap. I got coconut from this, never the creamy and crisp flavor of a creme brulee.
I’ve tried everything. Lots of leaf, a normal amount, oversteeping, understeeping, glaring at it while it brewed, shouting encouragment to my tea pot as it steeped- nada. Nope. Such a disapointment. I love creme brulee, and really wanted this to work out.
Well, onwards.
Sipdown!

Chocolate! I want chocolate! I have come home with a hankering and a craving.
I’ve largely given up on Chocolate teas, but I have this, from my sisters 12 days of christmas present to me.
Ehhhh. Its a bit watery, even though I went to the upper end of the steep perameters (I did it for 5 minutes), and while there is a faint coco flavor, I cant say I’m getting any of the hazelnut.
As it cools I get the teensiest bit of hazelnut, but unfortunatly it seems bitter.
Well, it was nice to try, but I cant really get behind this.

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.
