1492 Tasting Notes
Tea of the morning today.
I’m beginng to pale on this. Its still the softest, most delicate rose tea that I’ve ever owned, but I dont think it ages very well. Still, its a very nice tea. I dont think I’ve experienced the Harney & Sons tea that I have not found very good.
After I’ve done this tin, I’ll take a little break, I think.
My town hosts the local Scottish Games every year, and, as a proud Scotswoman, I don the family tartan and go. Its A great deal of fun. There is British Food, men throwing heavy objects in skirts (the men, not the objects), and all the bagpipes you could ever want. I love that stuff.
Its quite an afternoon, and I had a lot of fun, but was gasping for a cup of tea when I got home. Well, I dont have any thistle tea, so I figured an English Rose tea was the closest thing.
Its good! And it will help power my last spurt of writing for today. I need it. I’ve got 3k words to write today. Whew. Off I go!
I think I said this in my last review, but I really should just get some of this to have at home. Its raining, I have a free cup of tea card, and I almost always get this juicy blend.
It was good this afternoon. Its Friday (hooray!) and I have fun dinner plans (hooray!) but it seems like the afternoon is going to drag. (boo!)
Well, tea helps! Onward, to conquer Friday!
Its raining! Yay! We are going to have precious little of this, I’m told, until the end of the year. I will savor every drop, as rain is some of my favorite weather.
This tea is good with absolutly everything. Sunshine? The honey and fruit is a lovely combo. Frozen winter? There is something warm and sunshiny about it. In the rain? A supurb tea for rain.
Its going to be a long day, I think, but hopefully productive and good.
Hmm. Not sure what I was expecting with this. Something more citrusy? But I like it! Its a green tea with mint, and, as it cools, indeed a bit of citrus. I am always timid around green teas, but I’ve got help with this one. Mint and lemon is a lovely combo, and help introduce this green and myself. Maybe we can be friends!
I feel like this review took a turn for the weird. Now back to your regularly schduled steepster.
Lupicia, I love you. Its real love, and not a generally high matinence love. However, because I love you, I feel the need to tell you that a flat vanilla tea is not your strongest suit. Neither this nor La Vanille (back to back tasting soon!) are particularly vanilla, and miss the charm and pop of your other blends I’ve tried.
Well, its not undrinkable, but its just not special.
This has been said with love.
