New-ish tea goals.
If I have a tea in my cupboard that has no notes, or I havnt tried it, what exactly is stopping me, eh? Get a move on! You own this tea, drink it!
This….. is chamomile. Its not bad, standard issue. I expected the saffron to add something more to it, but it didnt quite brew up that well. In the box it smells a bit roasty, but I’m not noticing anything special about it in the cup.
Still, I like to have a chamomile in my cupboard at all times.

drank Rose Petal by The Republic of Tea
1019 tasting notes

My last pot of this and I managed to pour some of it across my desk. At least I missed my computer.
Its rapidly turning into one of those mornings!
Sipdown!

Long steep. Loooooooooong steep is the secret with this. Not nearly as chocolate like as I would wish (I am sensing a theme with chocolate teas), but its perfectly fine.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA
1019 tasting notes

Tonights steeping of this brings me out much more of the strawberry flavor.
This tea is a puzzle. I like all of the components- strawberry, chocolate, and rose, but this tea somehow is less than the sum of its parts. I feel greatness lurking in the background, but I may not be the steeper to bring it out.
Hmm.
DAVIDs Tea always becomes experimentation tea. Where I keep tying, to see what it will do next.

drank Royal Wedding by Harney & Sons
1019 tasting notes

This afternoons tea. I got a lot of “greeniness” in todays cup. Ah, Steepster, home of the highly scientific descriptions of things. Well, from me, anyway.
Goodness, I have a lot more of this than I thought I did…..

Stephanie

I like that one a lot! Coconut vanilla white tea, yum….

Rosehips

It is good!

Whats good about this is the vanilla, I’ve realized. Cinnamon in tea can be overwhelming, but the addition of vanilla is a mellowing agent to that. I like this. I might get it again when it rolls around, but for now its a Sipdown!

Power of persuasion…I’m suddenly craving it—have a few bags left!

The last of this is being used for a little experiment. I have blended my last perfect teaspoon of this with a perfect teaspoon of Harney and Sons Vanilla black, to see what happens.
It increases the creaminess of the tea. Now that I think of it, why arn’t there more vanilla and chocolate blends?
Well, this is a sipdown for black chocolate. Sipdown!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
1019 tasting notes

This is my morning pot of tea, and not a bad pot at all. But it is a little disapointing.
I was hoping for more squash, a stronger pumpkin flavor.
That being said, I like this chai. It seems well balanced and I do get the pie spice taste out of it.
Fall teas! I am having so much fun with fall teas!

keychange

I know what you mean. I found this a bit lacking in flavor as well, but still quite enjoyable.

Cavocorax

Yeah I have decided to only drink this with milk and brown sugar added. That makes it so much better – otherwise it’s a bit boring.

Tealizzy

I agree with Cavocorax. That’s the way to go!

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
1019 tasting notes

The scene- my kitchen.
The players- Me, and DAVIDs Salted Caramel tea.
(a kettle whistles, ROSEHIPS picks it off the burner, scalds a yellow tea pot, and then steeps a basket of Salted Caramel tea)
Me: Alright, set the timer.
(she sets a timer, and wanders around aimlessly until it dings. She removes the steeper basket, managing not to burn her fingertips. Much. Sits down with the yellow tea pot, and a polka dot cup)
Me: Alright tea, lets do this.
(She sips. She frowns, and takes another sip. Puzzlement.
Me: Why is this never quite what I expected it to be? Wherefor art thou, salt? At least thou art devoid of coffee flavor today.
(The tea says nothing, only sits and lets off steam. Rosehips picks up her cup again)
Me: Well, try try again.
(end scene)

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.
