833 Tasting Notes

Its up extra early today, as I’m housesitting and need to tend to the pets of the household, which include three cats, a parakeet, two ducks and fifteen canaries. They dont need a lot of work, but still, those canaries need to be fed!
I turn, on such a morning, to something I already know, as opposed to something new. This has a lovely orange-spice quality to it. A very pleasant cup in the morning.

Ducks! I always wanted a pet duck, but they require more space than I have. That must be fun pet-sitting for that much a variety of birds.

Its really interesting. This morning, one of the ducks (who I had been warned about) finally worked up the guts to peck at me. Fortunately I was wearing sensible boots, and it was funny, instead of painful.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Hasn’t he heard the phrase, “Don’t peck the foot that feeds you?” :-)

Rosehips

He seemed very puzzled that he was pecking me, but I was not reacting in pain. Ha! I’ve been warned about you, little terror. And then he tried to escape. Nope, not today!

Lol! Silly duck!

Sipdown. This is such a creamy pot of tea, with perfect strawberry flavor. A great tea for a summer evening. I am sorry to see this go.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia

A little pot of this is a lovely way to start up the day. This is a very elegant tea, with a lovely balace of flavors. The little sugar crystals in the dry tea gives it just the right amount of sweetness.

Have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this on my doorstep. I am trying out oolongs, and Vanilla is an excelent place to start.
Mmm, it smells like…. would it be weird if I said vanilla yougurt? Thats what I’m getting out of it. Thats how creamy it is.
I get more vanilla in the smell, and more grassyness in the taste. Ooolongs are relaxing, arnt they?

drank Florence by Harney & Sons

This is a very well balanced tea. The chocolate elements do not overpower the hazelnutty elements, leading to something reminicent of a fancy bonbon in a little chocolate shop.
This feels like an autumnal tea to me, like it would be fabulous to have on a chilly morning. I might keep ahold of the rest of this sample to try when it cools down some.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Hah! We both tried this at the same time this morning and gave it a similar score.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

After this mornings cup of Bigelow vanilla, I have decided to refresh my palatte with a cup of Comoro, and some fresh raspberries.
I’m almost out of Comoro, which is, of course, a problem. I feel like I always need Comoro!

It is good!

drank Vanilla Caramel by Bigelow

My love of vanilla will send me in quest of new and diffrent teas anytime. This isnt bad, but its certainly not a well balanced medly of tea and vanilla, like the best are. This is pure bottled vanilla, heated up and poured into a teacup. A little bit fake tasting. But it certainly smells like its advertised to. No balance, in this cup.

i am about to try silk road’s ‘vanilla plantation’….. it seems to be a vanilla day!

Ysaurella

Rosehips

Oooooh….. That sounds lovely.

Bio

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.
