1625 Tasting Notes


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.


Hah I do that too and when all else fails I cold steep it with a bagged black and try it iced. This does not sound tasty!

I know it doesn’t work like this, but I like to imagine that drinking a noncaff tea will counteract a caffeinated tea, like the Paris I just drank.
Really I was just looking forward to more tea, and this sounded good. A beautiful night of tea.

I needed a post dinner cuppa. Delicious. I might brew up another, I must confess.

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.

drank Mint Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

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 love Zhena’s teas. :) this one sounds very refreshing.

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.

The Lupicia fruit elves have struck again. How do they get that meltingly ripe flavor in a cup of tea? In the smell of the tea? Its sheer magic. Amazingly fruity. An excellent summer green.

Wow this is delicious.
I needed a relaxing tea for the afternoon, and something light, to combat the heat.
This wonderful cup of melon juiciness is just what the doctor ordered. I’ve put it in my favorite, delicately green tea cup, and I am going to take a few minutes to relax.

Cup of the morning. This is a very dependable tea, perfect for a morning like today.
My coworkers for the morning shift were almost all gone, only me and one other, and she had to leave early, so it was crazy.
Glad to have a solid tea to help me through.

I should go to bed early tonight, as I did not sleep well last night, and I have an early day tomorrow.
So noncaff is called for.
This is decent, for a summer tea, but I when I am done I shall never get more of this, I think.

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.
