1488 Tasting Notes


I wanted to like this. I wanted to soo much! Strawberry? Love! Cream? Delicious! Champagne? Yes please!
This tea? Artificially sweet and rather tart. What went wrong? Gah.
Well, I’ve brewed up the last of this as I make the final preparations to my house for this evenings visit from my friend (how did I aquire so much dust?).
Sipdown. Not sorry to see you go, tea. You are not coming back!

A friend of mine, who I met when I lived in England, is coming over to visit tonight! I am very excited, but I do need to do some cleaning. And writing, and excercising.
Time for a no holds barred tea.
Tower of London is clearly one of my very favorite teas. The honey and fruit notes is like the perfect flavors, like a fruit tart pastry. Yum. And its a 365 tea, perfect for all times of the year.


Have some good quality time (and tea) with your friend tonight :-)

Why isnt this more intense? I would really like a more hearty vanilla taste in this tea. This has got vanilla, but its light, floating about the base flavor.
Oh well.

Writing and working out is done. Whew!
Spring cleaning is in progress. I have already broken one of my favorite mugs, a lovely yellow striped one, which I doubt I can replace. Grr! Why is it always the ones that are discontinued/antique, and not the ones from Ikea! Gah!
I’ve heard this is discontinued! Oh no! Well, I shall enjoy this amazing perfumed cloud while I can.


This is the best tea to have ever been created.


And its leaving us, if what you say is true. Excuse me while I sob in a corner.

Morning cuppa. I’ve got writing, excercise, and cleaning to do today, so I need my fuel.
This is an excelent spring tea, soft and fresh and rosy, but not at all perfum-y. Very good.
Well, I’ve got seven hundred words yet to write, and then I need to work out, before I clean.
Off I go, then.

I am almost out of Paris! Eeep! How did we get to this point? Well, this pot served as my writer juce for phase one of this mornings scribblings. I’ve got a thousand words left to write today, so I should get down to it, pronto. Off I go. I should brew more tea, though.
Tea, a writers fuel. Yum.
Oh, right, Paris. As always it is delicious. I’m going to need more of it pronto.

Early this morning I needed a quick cup of tea. This was the one.
Good, simple, fast. Just my shorthand for a quick morning.

Backlog from last night. I attended a lecture last night with my family, and while it was interesting, it ran long, and we were exsausted. I had just the energy to brew this before falling headfirst into bed.

I did not sleep well last night. I dont know why, exactly, but thats the case. Bleh. And its going to be a very long day indeed.
So its time for delicious and failsafe tea. Oh Tower of London, your honey and fruit notes are the perfect companion to my breakfast of english muffins and local honey.


Not sleeping seems to be my “thing” lately


this tea & your breakfast sound perfect. i slept well last night & woke up super early today because i was craving several cup(s) of tea :P but couldn’t go back to sleep. then i got really sleepy an hour later but had to get ready for an appointment. but i sooo wanted to go back to sleep!

When I’m in a Nanowrimo session I tend to think of my tea as “writer juice,” like, “oh, time to do some writing, let me brew up some writer juce so I can get down to it.” Its so helpful, having a delicious cup at my side as I hash out plot and try to name all my characters.
This is a good one. Soft, creamy, and a delight to sip. Puts me in a good mood.
Back to writing!


Writer juice! I like that. Good for squoozing out activity ideas for fifth-graders, too. I certainly understand the “hashing out copy blues,” but I couldn’t coax a plot out of my brain if my life depended on it :)

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.
