drank Royal Wedding by Harney & Sons
1054 tasting notes

This afternoons tea. I got a lot of “greeniness” in todays cup. Ah, Steepster, home of the highly scientific descriptions of things. Well, from me, anyway.
Goodness, I have a lot more of this than I thought I did…..

Stephanie

I like that one a lot! Coconut vanilla white tea, yum….

Rosehips

It is good!

Whats good about this is the vanilla, I’ve realized. Cinnamon in tea can be overwhelming, but the addition of vanilla is a mellowing agent to that. I like this. I might get it again when it rolls around, but for now its a Sipdown!

Power of persuasion…I’m suddenly craving it—have a few bags left!

The last of this is being used for a little experiment. I have blended my last perfect teaspoon of this with a perfect teaspoon of Harney and Sons Vanilla black, to see what happens.
It increases the creaminess of the tea. Now that I think of it, why arn’t there more vanilla and chocolate blends?
Well, this is a sipdown for black chocolate. Sipdown!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
1054 tasting notes

This is my morning pot of tea, and not a bad pot at all. But it is a little disapointing.
I was hoping for more squash, a stronger pumpkin flavor.
That being said, I like this chai. It seems well balanced and I do get the pie spice taste out of it.
Fall teas! I am having so much fun with fall teas!

keychange

I know what you mean. I found this a bit lacking in flavor as well, but still quite enjoyable.

Cavocorax

Yeah I have decided to only drink this with milk and brown sugar added. That makes it so much better – otherwise it’s a bit boring.

Tealizzy

I agree with Cavocorax. That’s the way to go!

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
1054 tasting notes

The scene- my kitchen.
The players- Me, and DAVIDs Salted Caramel tea.
(a kettle whistles, ROSEHIPS picks it off the burner, scalds a yellow tea pot, and then steeps a basket of Salted Caramel tea)
Me: Alright, set the timer.
(she sets a timer, and wanders around aimlessly until it dings. She removes the steeper basket, managing not to burn her fingertips. Much. Sits down with the yellow tea pot, and a polka dot cup)
Me: Alright tea, lets do this.
(She sips. She frowns, and takes another sip. Puzzlement.
Me: Why is this never quite what I expected it to be? Wherefor art thou, salt? At least thou art devoid of coffee flavor today.
(The tea says nothing, only sits and lets off steam. Rosehips picks up her cup again)
Me: Well, try try again.
(end scene)

Unfortunatly I am prone to migraines, and I got one yesterday. The trouble is, by the time you feel it, its too late, and you either have to go so sleep or wait to die, whichever is first.
Its gone this morning, thank goodness, and I am rewarding my body with a cup of this gorgeous tea.
I say it every time, but it needs repeating. If you like any of the following- black tea, caramel, vanilla, joy, you need some of this gorgeous blend.

Stephanie

Aww, migraines are a bummer :(

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
1054 tasting notes

Done with work for the day, and soon will be going to the first birthday party for my tiny niece!
In celebration, as she’s sure to be a tea drinker like her mama and her Aunt and Uncle, I thought I would drink the sparkliest tea I own.
I still feel that is not quite cold enough for this, but its still pretty nice.
Now, what does one wear to a one year olds birthday party?

JustJames

casual clothes with a clown nose. that’s my vote. =0)

gmathis

Something washable for one-year-old chocolate frosting kisses!

JustJames

that is a very good point! definitely a clown nose though…..

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1054 tasting notes

This morning this smells more than usually wonderful. Its amazing how the smell of something can just put you in a good mood. This has done well in giving my morning a dreamy haze.

gmathis

This is the perfect season for Boston Blend.

Josie Jade

I love this one! I just finished off my sample and need to get a tin of this ASAP!

Today is my brothers birthday! He’s far away these days, but I can drink a cup of Earl Grey, his favorite, in his honor before I call him and tell him that he’s old.
I like this more than the first time I tried it. It seems creamier. Still is not a favorite of mine, I never really connect with the good Earl of Grey, but the addition of vanilla will induce me to try just about anything.
Thanks again to Fuzzy_Peachkin, who is is the giver of this.
And sipdown!
Happy birthday, little bro.

drank Rose Congou Green by DAVIDsTEA
1054 tasting notes

Mini sipdown. Does a sipdown count if it was just a sample? Yes, I suppose it must. It is a tea gone from the cupboard.
Its a very nice green tea. I love the rose aspect to this. Its what a green tea needs to maximize its appeal to me.
Warning to rose haters- this is not for you!

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.
