1124 Tasting Notes
I get to go into work at 8, and wont leave work until 8. Wahoo.
So, I need a good tea for today. No cup of meh this morning. I’m getting to the bottom of this bag, and all the apple bits seem to have settled down there. Makes it very apple-y.
Off I go. One more cuppa, and then its off into te wild blue yonder.
This was part of my DAVIDsTea haul from yesterday. The reviews were lackluster, but I am powerless in the face of a pastry flavored tea.
Hmm, its lighter and less rich than I would have really liked, but its not bad.
I think I steeped this a little light this time. I shall have to see what a longer steep will do.
For the last of this sample I’ve mixed it together with a spoonfull of Rose Scented, as I’ve heard advertised. I really like it, what a gentle and flavorful combination. Yum. This balances the sweetness of rose with the savoryness of this tea, but its not at all overpowering. Very good.
If I get more of the impressive Queen, I shall pair it with Rose Scented all time time.
Er, I may have hit up a mall in a major city and gone to both DAVIDsTea and Lupicia, and come away with some tea. Oops.
Well, time to work on my sipdowns. This has one more pot left in it, which I may kill off tonight, if I’m feeling ambitious. This was a decent enough starter tea, but I’ve grown past it, and I am done. I wont get it again.
My last pot of this tea, to help me write this morning as I get ready for a long day. If I do not do my Nanowrimo word count now, then I shall not get it done at all today, as a little trip is planned.
I never did manage to eek out the chocolate of this, which is a little disapointing. But I cannot be too mad, as the pumpkin spice quality of this tea is perfectly lovely.
Good bye, Chocolate Pumpkin Pie!
Goodness, I’m low on this. How did I get to this point? I’ve only got about one more pot left! Eeep.
Having this as my pre writing tea, with a slice of cinnamon coffee cake, which is all very delicious. Omnom.
Good and relaxing. I’m meeting up with a Nanowrimo friend in a bit, and we’re going to do a write-a-thon.
A good start.
Five hours of sleep. Yay. And a very long day ahead of me.
Today I need serious tea. With that in mind, I reached for this sample of Queen Catherine, which I threw into my last Harney order.
Wow. This is a complex yet gentle black, which is doing its job and then some. I get notes of chocolate and honey in the quiet depths of this tea. Very nice.
I’ve got a scoop more of this. Next time, I’m going to combine it with rose scented, as I’ve heard is a lovely combo.
