1211 Tasting Notes


When I was growing up Christmas Eve-Eve was a thing between my brother and me. I’m sure we drove everyone nuts, running around and making a fuss over it being Christmas Eve-Eve.
So, in the spirit of that tradition, I’ll sip some of this tea.
I’m glad I’ve got a decent amount of this, as its quite good. I love mint, and the creamy underflavor is very nice.


Merry Christmas eve-eve to you.


I believe it is also festivus today too! Merry Christmas eve-eve! I will also be celebrating tonight. Woot!

Per my new influx of tea, I’ve decided that its time to sip down some more tea. I only had a little bit of Cookie left, so that decided me.
This is a nice tea, with the butter cookie flavor. But its also a little delicate, so a bitter note comes through sometimes. Thats a little unfortunate, as I can be an agressive steeper.
This is one of those teas that I might restock someday, but not with anything resembling urgency.
Ah tea! And off I go to my day!

Just got back from Christmas with my sister, who is my equally tea loving sister. And, what a surprise, an egg cart with 12 unique teas was my gift from her. Eeep, 12 new teas to add to the cupboard. I am back up to around 70, and all but one of my new teas are things that I have never tried. So its time to work on chipping away the existing teas. I dont want any tea to languish in my cupboard, so I’m working on sipping down some older teas, and some of the meh cups.
Eeee! So much tea. Its wonderful.

The egg cart is a cute idea!

Nope. Sorry. I tried, but this is just not for me. I will reserve rating it, as it is so intensly not my thing.
Oh well.

This has been on my wishlist for a while, so I was delighted when JustJames sent me this.
I’ve had orange spice teas before, and I realy like them. But I’d never tried anything like this before.
It tastes like one of those chocolate oranges, though the chocolate is almost subconcious. If I focus, I cant taste the chocolate, but if I relax, the chocolate orange just waves over me. Delicious.
Well, this has decided it. I’m going to keep this on my to-order list. Yum.


what a beautiful line! sub-conscious chocolate… so glad you enjoyed it =0)

A coworker gave me a gift today, a huge mug patterned with tea pots and some vanilla rooibos tea. So I am breaking out the mug to brew a double batch of this. I have such a lot of tea, that, at the moment, I am going to chip away at the sipdownable quantities of tea.
And this is a nice afternoon cup of tea.
How sweet! I love that coworker, she’s my fav. How very kind of her.

I remembered only as I was steeping this sample sachet, that I had planned to keep this till New Years Morning. Ah well, I have lots of other wonderful teas to drink then.
I am dragging today, and have to finish wrapping gifts, and also go to a party tonight. So I need energy, and this beautiful tea is the way to do it. I need another tin of this….


Lupicia is a company I have yet to explore—I just added this to my shopping list!


keychange – apparently cookie from lupicia is really good


I can concur, cookie is good. I like Lupicia, nice teas.

Very simalar to Christmas tradition, but without the slight savory note. Still, I like it.
Its a good thing this is not a competition, as I would fail it right out. I cant decide!

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.
