1185 Tasting Notes

I cannot make up my mind on this one. Today I gave it a milder steep then I have in the past, and its made it much tastier to me. Hmm.
Light, and this steeping gives it only the softest waft of bergamot. Which is how I like my bergamot.
I’ve got a fair amount of this, so I should certainly find the way I enjoy it most.

I could not resist this tin the last time I was in Lupicia. It was so pretty. Lupicia has the prettiest specialty tins.
I dearly love a strawberry and vanilla tea. I dont really associate it with Christmas, however. But all of Lupicias holiday flavors are diffrent then what I am used to. Less spice, more fruit. Interesting.
This smells lovely,remining me very much of my beloved Yume. It brews up very nice, a soft and dreamy cup of strawberrys and vanilla cream.
Maybe not a traditional western Christmas tea, but very tasty.

don’t you find the fruit taste a little artificial in this one ? I had this impression with it

I need more testing to really make up my mind. I’ll see what I think of it next time.

Oh, last night was a beautiful night of sleep. Hurrah! And I woke up to a cold and misty morning, which are my favorite kind. So I have brewed this, my wooly sweater caramel and vanilla tea. It was made for this kind of day. Yum.

This is nothing special. The addition of Saffron is kinda nice, but you need to focus to actually pick it out.
However there are those nights when “nothing special” is exactly what one wants.

Nanowrimo may be over (and I won! Hurrah!), but I’m trying to stay in the writing groove. So I’m typing away tonight, and sipping on this.
It seems to be helping my headache too, always a bonus.
An noncaffine is a must, as I need a lot of sleep tonight.
I like my evening teas in sachets. For some reason, often I cannot be bothered to brew up a proper pot. The rest of the day, absolutly, but at night? Nope, let me have a sachet and throw it in a cup.

First day back at work after a little vacation is always a bit of a tough day. But it could be much worse.
However I have aquired a headache. Tea! Hopefully tea can help!

Nightmares and work stress woke me up this morning. Blergh.
This tea remains sweet, mellow, and just a delight to sip on in a morning where I need to simutaniously calm down and wake up.
Its always hard to go back to work after a holiday. Sigh. Well, it must be done.

Nightshifter

I just ordered this one. Can’t wait to try it!

Veronica

Someday I’m going to place a Butiki order, and this is going to be the first tea in my cart. It sounds delicious!

Rosehips

It is! I hope that both of you like it when you get to try it. Its an almondy cookie/croissant loveliness.

Still not much impressed with this. It hardly leaves an impression. Not very chocolatly, only sort of minty, and a whole lot of red.
Hmm. Well, only a little bit left.

And now it is a Sunday Sample Sipdown. Thanks again to Josie Jade for sending this to me.
Off you pop, Holiday Spiced Plum, you shall not be gracing my cupboard again!

What does this taste like? Like if you melted a plum candy in hot water, a little bit.
I, er, ordered more teas then I expected too from various black friday-cyber monday sales, so, while I have reached my black friday sipdown goal, the sheer amount of tea thats coming in has given me a great desire to sip down the teas that I’ve only got a little of.
So I’m going to try to finish this today. And it is December, after all. Holiday tea is now appropriate.

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.
