1807 Tasting Notes
Backlogged from last night. I had this in celebration of completing Nanowrimo!
My boyfriend had broken into my tin the night before, loved it, and given me a sip.
“Its like actual peppermint bark!” he said, “so creamy!”
And so it was. Light, soft, creamy and delicious. So it was a good celebration cup to have as well. I really like this. I picked it up out of sheer curiosity, but I’m gonna maybe pick up a spare tin, at least to give to my boyfriend, as he loves it too. Just a lovely holiday style tea.
Also! Now that Nanowrimo is over, I officially consider it alright to drink “holiday” teas. Bring on the peppermint, the figgy puddings, the hints of pine!
Tea of last night.
Boyfriend and I had a date, going to Big Hero Six and then went to the local bbq joint. It was fun, and delicious. I really liked the movie, and I love BBQ.
We went over to my house, to chat and drink tea. He had a new one of mine, that I have not tried yet, but had a sip of of, and a tasting note will follow once I have had my own cup. And I had this.
As always, rich, vanilla-y, decadant. A lovely treat of a dessert tea.
Oolongs! I really want to try more oolongs. They’re so interesting, so different. Such interesting flavors can happen with them.
Ost sent me this, which was lovely, as I wanted to try it.
Its light, with a faint sugar note laced through it. Mellow, pale, and very good. It was a good accompaniment to the rain that we’re having right now. I like oolongs as afternoon teas.
Thanks to Ost for this sample!
Two more days in Nanowrimo! Eeek!
I’m on track, but I’m gonna have to do some serious writing today. We’ve reached the hard part of the story, the one where I really don’t know how it ends. Eeesh. I love writing, but its hard work!
I’m determined to be sipping down samples, and this is a good way to start doing that. Sipping down the small amounts, and the “autumn” teas.
I honestly don’t know If I’ll get more of this next year. I’ve got pumpkin teas I like better. I’ve got pumpkin teas that have more pumpkin in them. We’ll see in a year, I suppose.
Sipdown! By bye, pumpkin chai.
I put in, well, a couple of Black Friday orders. Heh, oops. I’m excited, but I can always feel the slightly frantic feel of a lot of teas in my cupboard, which always motivates some sipping.
Theres only a couple of cups of this warm and tasty tea left in my tin. I’ll get it sipped down soon, I hope.
Tea of the morning.
I don’t go in for Black Friday sales in a traditional way. What I like is the thrift store black Friday sales (half off thrift store clothes) , and then some craft fair shopping.
And, of course, the tea sales. I have a few orders coming in, I must admit. Heh!
Quick and easy tea this morning, as I headed out on my way.
My stomach is starting to settle down. I’ve managed to eat, and, even better, I’m actually feeling hungry (which I was not feeling previously), and I’m feeling up to black tea.
Autumnal flavors! I am drinking a lot of autumnal flavors. Its most excellent.
I do love this tea. I’ll have plenty to take me into winter time as well, but its a great fall flavor.
I’m excited for the day off tomorrow. Lots of tea to be drunk!
Hello Steepster. Sorry I’ve been absent. Its not been my intention. I’m just very busy, and a little ill. My stomach is really choosy right now, making me loose my appetite, and not wanting more than a few bites. I didn’t want to try my usually beloved black tea, this morning, so my boyfriend rummaged and found some mint tea for me.
Good old mint tea. Does wonders for a jumpy stomach, and always makes me calmer. Its powerful stuff.
