1596 Tasting Notes
The Harney effect. Even when its not a tea that I would buy on my own (this was a sample with a recent order), I still enjoy it, and think it is a good tea.
Not as cinnamon-y as it smells, which is good, as the smell of cinnamon is quite strong indeed.
But I enjoy it. I should have saved it for a cold fall day. That would have been perfect.
I am, apparently, an optimist. I have not enjoyed this tea. Its weirdly herbal, not a lot of fruit flavor, and even less tea flavor. It has not been a liked tea.
But, I don’t hate it to the point of throwing it out. I’m a person who is determined to use up even not very well liked things. Maybe today, with hot water and a long steep, it will be alright?
Nope. This is still weirdly herbal, a sour note, with a hint of the orange flavor. Nope, nope, nope. Stay away, friends.
That said, I don’t have much left. I might still try to sip this down.
I had a lovely weekend out of town, to one of my favorite places, but this does mean I’m behind on my tea drinking.
This was what I brewed up this morning, and I’m afraid I under steeped it. It was still good, but not rich and creamy.
Honestly, you miss one day and you have to relearn the delicate art of steeping. Ah well.
I was in a tea rut. The things in my cupboard were all starting to look too familer, so I’ve got myself some new teas, to help refresh my palate.
I like mint tea. I like teas with rose in. Its loose leaf, and it came with a little jar with a cute wooden spoon attached. Sold.
Verdict? Not bad. Very minty, but the rose is still a presence. Its not overpowering, and I’m enjoying.
Excelent. Lovely to have a new tea to try.
I just noticed that this is my Friday tea. A little treat to push me through the last workday of the week.
I played host to my parents this morning, whose shower is broken, so came to use mine this morning. Not a problem, I had some tea and a book and a quiet moment.
Really glad of that cuppa. This morning is already quite busy, and its not even 9 yet. Its gonna be a very full work day.
I cant wait for the weekend.
