1862 Tasting Notes
This tea is quite a basic one. Just a black tea with lemon. Nothing very special. And yet, I must say that sometimes nothing special is exactly what the doctor ordered. I love a citrus tea in the summer time, so this will be drunk without anything resembling a problem. Not fancy, just good.
How do these Mondays keep sneaking up on me like this? Where do they come from? Eeeep.
It was an exhausting weekend, and though I’m not keen to be back at work, I am glad to have some nice structure again.
This remains a trustworthy tea. This can be reliably expected to be creamy, rich, and smooth. One of my favorites when you need a calming morning.
The kind Ost gave me this to try a while back, and I’m just now getting around to it.
Could Wedding Tea be the same as the Royal Wedding Tea? Maybe. I’m not sensitive enough to white teas. In fact, I know I am not. More experimentation is needed!
But the general opinion is positive. This is an interesting tea.
Aha! Friends, if you could see me, you would see in my eyes the madness of a woman on a sipdown spree. I am on a mission. I want things out of the cupboard!
So, I’m finishing this up this afternoon. Farewell, oh White Chocolate! You and I never really got along, through no fault of our own. Alas!
I never really got the chocolate part of white chocolate out of this. I got floral instead! Of all things!
But oh well. Its just a memory now. Sipdown!
I have the sipdown fever! I’ve been prowling my stash, thinking “can I sip this down soon?” and poking at the teas.
Well, the good news is that I’m really close to sipping this down. The bad news is that I’m not quite there yet. But one sachet closer!
This tea, through no fault of its own, is something I would not have picked for myself. I find myself weary around green teas, and tropical flavors are not my favorite.
But I can still see that this tea is quite well assembled, and it does have a nice freshness that I can appreciate, even if its not exactly the tea for me.
Whew! Its Wednesday, but it doesn’t feel like it.
I had a very busy three day weekend. I went to an archery range for the first time, and I love it! My anniversary present from my significant other was a bow and arrows, and I had such a good time that we’re going back again soon.
So my Steeping was light this weekend, but I’m happy to be getting back into the flow of it.
This is the end of my packet of Yume. Its one of my favorite springtime teas, and I’m sorry to see it go, but I’m excited to have another sipdown! I’m getting closer and closer to my sipdown goal. I’m trying to reach it before I go to NYC this summer, as I’d like to buy some tea when I’m there!
