1568 Tasting Notes


Ah. One of, if not my absolute favorite pumpkin teas. So happy to have it back in the cupboard!
So my training yesterday was out in the Napa Valley, which was so, so gorgeous, but far away from me. I want to go back for a lovely weekend, not of work training, which was boring and a bit useless, as so often happens.
But back to this tea! I was waiting for this to get back in, and I snapped it up at once. I am now surrounded by autumnal teas, which is a glorious state. I love the autumnal teas, so, so much!


I am tempted to get this too.

I have to go to a work training today! Argh! I don’t wanna! And its going to be almost all day long, with travel to and from.
I am cross, as these are never any use whatsoever. Bleh.
Time to start getting ready, unfortunately, but I’m going to drink this gorgeous cup of autumnal glory before I go. Maybe it will make the training go well?

This is so light and pretty. I’m glad I got some more of it.

drank Pumpkin Patch by DAVIDsTEA

The trouble with the David’s Tea pumpkin offerings is that I do not get any pumpkin out of them. They’re warm and spicy, and this one has some nice flavors, but none of them is pumpkin too me.
This is too bad, I’d love more pumpkin in my tea. I love pumpkin. But it will do.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

Tea of the early afternoon, along with some cinnamon bread. Tasty combo.
Longer than usual morning work session, so I’m a bit behind on the things I need to get done today. Must get moving!
I underleafed this today, accidently. Whoops. Still, its warm, with a bright citrus note lurking inside, and I’ve enjoyed it. Particularly good with the cinnamon bread.

This is smooth and warm and a little bit toasty.
This was a sample with my most recent Harney order, and its got all the earmarks of a Harney blend- smooth, well blended, quiet and sophisticated.
This particular blend is not really for me. Its well done, but there are blends that excite me a great deal more.
Sample Sipdown!


The organic version tastes weak to me, almost like a decaf.

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo
1568 tasting notes

I got a lot of rooibos out of this, but very little in the way of the vanilla parfait. Too bad, a truly vanilla rooibos would be lovely.
Fortunately I don’t mind rooibos, though that’s the strongest I can say for it. Its alright.
This will be in my cupboard until its gone, but then I’m not getting more of it.

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons
1568 tasting notes

It rained here last night! It’s grey and damp out there (though it has, sadly, stopped raining).
But I am much more able to enjoy my cup of tea!
Second ever cup of this, and my opinion remains positive. Its Boston’s little sister, not as nutty, but just as sweet. A gorgeous autumnal flavor.


I had both of those today! Raining here this morning, too!

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA

I have decided to dedicate the evening to drinking tea, knitting, and watching youtube videos.
I’m learning to knit, and I’m working on a scarf. Its taking forever, but I’m pleased with it, generally.
Tis is a bit woody, and I don’t really get pumpkin out of this. But it is warm and “autumnal,” and I’m glad to have tried it.

My stomach was a little upset after lunch today, so I went to the local Peet’s to use a free cup of tea card I had. This is what I got, and its done well on the settling of the stomach.
I’ve had this before, and, as then, am a little conflicted. I like all the parts, but something just seems a touch off about it, when I have a cup.
Further study is obviously required.

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.
