1779 Tasting Notes


And I said to myself, “its autumn. Why not try that apple cider tea you bought?” And so I did.
It smells fantastic, ooey, gooey apple goodness. Cider with a pinch of something extra.
It does not taste quite as it good as it smells, but its alright. I think I’ll be able to manage it.


Cinnamon stick…?

Today has been a frantic scramble from one thing to the next. Gah. Up extra early, work a bit tricky, running around my significant other, who is without a car at the moment.
This was the tea of the morning, which seems so long ago.
This is the “quick! I NEED TEA!” tea, as I have yet to be able to screw it up. A useful skill.

I was outta town yesterday, with my boyfriend, visiting his family. His family is good people, but for one flaw. No tea. Not a single, solitary tea bag in the house, much less anything resembling loose leaf. I knew I should have brought my own!
So all of yesterday (and it was a long day) was a day without tea. Ugh. When I got home last night, I greeted all my teas like the old friends they are.
This morning I had some of this! This is such a light almond cloud. I really love how much you can taste the almond, its spectacular.


Haha it seems like you always got to carry an emergency stash with you.


I tote around 4-6 thermoses full of tea to any gatherings of my boyfriend’s family. They drink coffee, or beer, or bagged tea. His mom has a few rooibos at her place, but it’s usually best to bring my own.

This is very strong this morning. Whew. Bu I like it! Its turned almost buttery in texture, and the taste is strong but still quite pleasant.
Friday. Its still sometimes hard to wake up, put on clothes, and get to work. Its hard, but tomorrow is Saturday, that most glorious of sleeping in days. I am excited!

So tired. Morning work went well enough, but due to poor sleep last night, I’m dragging.
Tea! Tea to the rescue.
My favorite part about this blend is the touch of lemon peel. A bright citrus snap in the warm and cinnamon depths.
Its helping a bit! Very good, as I’ve got so much to do today. Better drink this tea, and on we go.

I did not sleep well last night. And its my early morning, with a long day of work ahead of me.
So the typical Thursday morning quick and easy tea is called for. I do this one a lot on a Thursday morning. That’s because its pretty well foolproof.


Blargh as well, I did not sleep well either :(

Lessons learned with this tea-
1. I need a new ball strainer. Mine let all sorts of debris out, and float around my cup like so many merry twigs.
2. This tea is very pretty! So colorful. So many bits that I do not know what they are!
3.Chamomile, while I have a space for it in my cupboard, is not my most favorite.
4. Still, this is pretty good. I like mint in them, though I can’t tell what the flower petals were supposed to do, exactly.
Verdict- I like it well enough, but a perminant member of my cupboard? Probably not.

This morning it is cool, and the taste of this tea fills me with joy. There is absolutely no sensation quite like drinking this tea, wrapped and warm in your robe, on a cool morning.
I love fall. Its got some of my favorite flavors, and the things I like best in the world. This tea is one of them. The most underrated of the Harney blends, in my opinion.

After a long day I want a nice cup of tea to unwind with. Sip sip.
This is rich and vanilla-y today, while I work on my knitting. The scarf is coming along, but slowly.

Cup at lunch time! I am feeling the vibe, from this mornings fruity Cranberry Autumn cup, to keep the fruit and black blends going. I love a fruit/black tea blend.
This is not quite as good as Cranberry Autumn, but still very enjoyable. The fruit and tea are well balanced, and this cup just tastes “juicy” to me.
And its finally cooling down around here! I drank a cup of tea and wore a sweater and did not overheat! Victory!

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.
