1858 Tasting Notes

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

Isnt tea wonderful? I was laying in bed, contemplating the world, and how much I’ve got to do, when I remembered tea. Tea got me out of bed, and now, after my first cup, the stuff I need to do seems exciting and good!
I picked up this in the Black Friday sales, and I’m glad I did. Creamy, subtle, with a single sparkling citrus note, and a warm earthiness to it. Its grand.


Yay! It motivated me to get up too. :)

I’m up early today, as I’m an emergency fill for one of my fellow staff. I’m happy to help out, even if it is early on a Saturday morning!
I’ve been ignoring this one, which is not fair. Its a decent tea! Its problem is not within itself, but the fact that I’ve had better versions of this blend elsewhere. I’ve got better vanilla mint-y blends in my cupboard.
Its not you, Peppermint Bark, its me.

Friday. Its one of those Fridays where I’ve dragged myself through the week, and this part looks choppy as well, and I don’t have enough sleep.
I’m going to work, so I need caffine, and I just wanted this. So I drank it. Its helping, brisk and invigorating. Good.
Disjointed tasting note is disjointed.

I wanted some oolong today, so this sample that Ost sent me seemed like exactly the right thing.
This is a light and floral oolong, very pleasant. Yeah, that’s the right word for this, pleasant. It just leaves me feeling mellow and calm. A very nice tea this afternoon!

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons

Whew, super busy today at work. Now I’m done with the morning session, and must convince myself to exercise, go to the post office and fix lunches for the next few days. Hm.
Motivation time. Tea!
Its been ages since I had this, and I’m now regretting that, as I really like it. Like Boston, but minus the almond. And, while I’m bonkers for Boston, sometimes you want something a little simpler. Bingo!
Maybe the tea will motivate me to get off my keister and get to work.

This has got such an interesting hint of pine floating around at the tail end of the sip. It bumps up the otherwise unflavored tea, which enhances it, rather than distracts.
Also, its a quick cup to brew up and to drink- important this early in the morning.

Man, its been a long day. I had lots of things go wrong, which is very frustrating. But! After work my lovely boyfriend called and said he was in a nearby tea shop, and could he order me a pot of tea? Love.
So I drank a pot of tea (a vanilla black, unknown, and now I don’t know which one), and decompressed. And it was wonderful. Tea is so fantastic.
Home, post workout, and I have youtube videos to catch up with, and my knitting to work on, and also, this tea.
I haven’t had this for a long time, and now I’m not sure why. Its really good! Almondy, sweet without making cavities appear, and I’m loving it. Perfect, comforting cup.


Your boyfriend is awesome xD


I’m fond of him. :)

I went to bed with a headache, and I woke up with a headache. Bleh. And today is going to suck, in a major way.
But, I must try and win the day. So I needed a good tea. My little package of this sung out to me, and its delicious.
One of the “squashier” pumpkin teas I’ve had, not just a mishmash of pumpkin pie spice. But the truly amazing part is the crispy note of sugar, like the top of a crème brulee. Its amazing.


I hate when that happens. I hope it’ll go away soon! Painkillers?


I took some, and they helped a little, but I had a tiny headache all day. Bleh.

drank Figgy Pudding by Della Terra Teas

Holy Figs, Batman! This is so figgy today. What did I do? I don’t think I did anything different, but its so rich, so decadent, that I feel I must have figured out something secret about this tea. It honestly tastes like figs in a cup, rich, earthy, and warm.
A pleasant start to the day.

I’ve drunk this a lot lately, but it does not bother me. I like this a lot, its creamy and good, an uncomplicated tea for the evening. Good.

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.
