1665 Tasting Notes


Its fall! Officially fall! Wahoo!
I love fall, its my favorite season, and I’m ready for all the autumn flavors. Yum.
I steeped this too little today, and its a touch… soapy? Boo! Come back, vanilla almond!


So many great comfort teas await us! ;-)

Its been too long a day when you cant even remember what tea you drank this morning. That’s absurd. I’ve been wracking my brain!
I’m in a tea rut, I think. I love Comero, but I’ve got other decaf teas, so why am I not drinking them? I should do that. Right after I finished this cup.


When I drink Comoro I feel like I’m being bad for drinking a dessert-y black tea so late, but then I actually get to sleep. Win!

Friday! Gosh, I’ve been ready for Friday since Monday.
I’m almost out of this, and I’ll feel slightly sad to see it go. Basic, but tasty. Perfect for those mornings that I don’t know what I want.

What is this? Overcast? Slightly damp? Could there be rain today?! I hope so.
Theres nothing explicitly “summer” about this tea, but somehow I feel like its a warmer weather tea, rather than a cooler one.
I’m making a list of the autumn teas I’m going to order. I cant wait. Its time for pumpkin tea!

I have fenced for the evening, which was good exercise. There are two ways to be during fencing, you are either the pin or the pincushion. Today I was the pin more than I was the cushion, which is an excellent way to be.
Cup of tea as a reward. This is a nobrainer. I’m always in the mood for vanilla, so this is a dependable and enjoyable cup.


I love this one too! It’s like having dessert. :)

I need more tea. I mean, always do, but now, for real. I’m almost out of my loose leaf, and I’m ready for autumn teas to come my way. Pumpkin, almond, cranberry, I’m ready for the fall flavors. Of course, the weather around here is still in the 100s, but I’m hoping that if I order the fall flavors, the other teas will come.
This is my last cup of this, and I’ve really enjoyed this blend. Creamy, a bit earthy, and with a mellow sweetness to it. I really enjoyed it. I might get more!
Now, what fall teas do you all recommend?

So is everyone elses cupboards still all disordered? Its hard find my teas! Eeep!
Gosh today was busy. So busy, that I didn’t even log this when I drank it this morning! I’m trying to coax fall in by drinking teas that feel more fall like to me.
Maybe it will work?

It is 101 out there today. Bleh! Cue the weeping.
This cup is very floral, but fortunately I like floral. And the earl grey base makes for a really interesting cuppa. I enjoy this very much.
And now I need to quit putting off doing the dishes….

It was hard to say goodbye to my class this morning, and hand them over to the new instructor. There may have been tears. They may have been from me.
Its going to be a weird day.
I promised only teas I really like, and I’m sticking with it.
This is the last of my pound of Tower of London that I bought. I can’t believe I drunk a whole pound of this tea. And, you know? I really like it still. I find it a honey touched cup of fruit and delight.
I might take a little break from it, but it will be returning to my cupboard very soon.


A pound of this tea? :O How long did that take you?


Aww, I hope you’ll feel better about it soon. That must be very hard.

That’s impressive that you still like it after an entire pound.


It took me since December to do! And I’m surprised that I still like it too. But I don’t think I’m going to buy a whole pound again….


Heh heh. I buy this one by the pound, too. Also their Vanilla Black.

Its going to be a hard day. Its my last day teaching my much loved morning nutrition class. Its been given to a new instructor, and I’m heartbroken. I think its going to be rough, as I really love my students.
I’m going to only drink loved teas today. Its the kind of day when you just pull all the beauty you can out of your cuprboard and pour it into your cup.
I’m glad I have some beautiful teas to have.

Tea is such a comfort. Man, I’m so sorry it’s your last day teaching that course :( I’m sure something new and even more awesome will appear on the horizon to take its place. /hugs

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.
