954 Tasting Notes

Backlogg from yesterday. Still feeling poorly, I reached for my very favorite chamomile, which I am hording and parcing out bit by bit. It went perfectly with my evening read of a silly murder mystery, and then I went to bed.
This is such a nice tea. Complex and light and everything an herbal should be.

Its a hundred degrees out (no exaggeration), my sinuses are giving me a hard time, and my stomach hurts.
I need a cup of creamy comfort. Save me, Vanilla Orchid. Save me.

Its going to be 100 degrees today. Buy my sinuses are still unhappy, and so an unseasonable tea is called for!
Why precicely I thought cinnamon would be good for gunky sinuses, I do not know, but I do like this. Its warm and fun. Not precicely the mood people usually goes for during 100 degree weather, but hey.
Give me tea or give me heatstroke!

Gross, 100 degrees! I don’t know how you can live like that. 80 is bad enough.

Rosehips

Its no fun, let me tell you. Pretty common around here.

I like this one (maybe not in triple digit heat; we had that today, too). It’s very similar to one of my winter favorites, Eggnogg’n by Bigelow.

Rosehips

As I say, I dont know what posessed me to attempt this in triple digits. I am a fool for tea!

drank Loke Lani by Lupicia

I woke up this morning to find that my sinuses had been draining down my throat all night, leaving me with a sore throat. Not good, as I need to teach a class this morning. Time to get a trusty pot of tea!
Loke Lani was a gift, and I love it. This tea is light and fruity and sparkles across the palate. And its doing wonders this morning.
Up and at em!

drank Rooibos Chai by Harney & Sons

Free sample. Its an interesting mixture, the chai with the rooibos, curiously sharp. I am getting the cinnamon and cardamon that are inherant to the whole chai experience, and the rooibos lends a curious… I dont know, redness? to the whole situation.
Wouldnt buy it, but it was nice to try.

drank Love Tea #7 by DAVIDsTEA

I am breaking a general guideline and drinking a caffinated tea after dinner time. If I suffer afterwards, so be it.
I’m trying to be brave and actually steep my Davids teas for the longer terms. Its yeilding interesting results. The longer steep on this really brings out the strawberry notes. It makes for an interesting blend.

For some reason, my morning sipdown cup of this is extra gingery today. This makes me very happy.

drank Damask Rose by Lupicia

My last pot of this. Drinkable, but not very amazing. What is a Damask rose anyway?
Well, thats the end of this. And now I’ve got the pretty tin. Dont know what I’ll do with it, but I have it!

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia

I had a pot of this in the morning. It was very nice. An elegant rose tea, I always think.

Bio

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.
