950 Tasting Notes


And I said to myself “self, you have only one sachet of this left, and then it will be a sipdown. You should drink it.”
And so I did.

I tried a slightly longer steep today (though I didnt keep very good track of just how long, I’m afraid), and it has coaxed out some very noticable coco flavor.

More apple pie tea. It is a crip fall morning, and apple pie seems like just the right thing for such a day.

A while ago Fuzzy_Peachkin sent this off to me, and I have had it on my counter, in my sample bowl, being vaugly intimidated by it.
What was Yabao, exactly? I am ashamed to say that I am still not sure, but I decided that today was the day to be brave, and I brewed it up.
Its intrguing, that much I’ll say. And good! Light, floral, with a touch of cream and a wonderous spring-like quality. (So a perfect tea for October, eh?)
Its still a bit mysterious to me, and this is all I have, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

After sipping down two beloved teas this morning, I have remembered my ol commitment to drinking at least one cup of meh tea every day. Thats fallen a bit to the wayside, as I’ve been busy. When I’m busy I seem to indulge in my nice tea, and ignore the meh.
But we’re back now.
I have a lot of this. More than I thought I did. I would have sworn I was farther along with this.
Oh well, time to get sipping. I want it gone before black friday!

Another bittersweet sipdown from this morning.
I will have you again, Marco Polo. You are too magnificent not to get again. Someday, when I am very, very good indeed.
Until we meet again.


if you get desperate we can always do a swap sometime. I have a bunch left.


Oh, me too. When it comes to Marco Polo, I am very swap-minded.


Fab! I may take you guys up on it in the future.

Its time. Time for Sipdown!
Its gone (sniff), my dancy, light, lovely tea is gone now.
I dont know if I shall ever have it again, as its not easily accessable to me, but it was wonderful while I had it.
Goodbye, Loke Lani!


Awww. Many sads.

I still think this is a really nice pie blend, but I still dont taste any of the chocolate!
Next time I’m going to do a back to back brewing of this and Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie, to see if I detect a diffrence.

This is a sipdown.
Its a light and delightful darjeeling, and makes for a very refreshing afternoon tea. I should have had some buttered toast with this.
This is very good. Its gone for now, but it may find its way back to me soon enough!

Good lord its windy. I feel as if I may be whisked off to Oz at any given moment, which would be a good adventure, but is very hard on ones hairdo.
I have a little midmorning break, and so I have cut myself a slice of cinnamon coffee cake, and have brewed up this.
I’ve said before that this is a wooly sweater tea, and it really is. A sophisticated blend of caramel and vanilla, and just perfection on this blustery day. I’ve been saving it for just such weather. Next rainstorm will be good for this too!
Its funny how we associate teas with weather, isnt it?


It really is. I associate tea with so many things: for example, there are teas I have that I refuse to drink at work because they are far, far too beautiful to be consumed when I’m in any other state than a purely blissful one. And then winter teas. And spring ones. etc.

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.
