1538 Tasting Notes
I think I said this in my last review, but I really should just get some of this to have at home. Its raining, I have a free cup of tea card, and I almost always get this juicy blend.
It was good this afternoon. Its Friday (hooray!) and I have fun dinner plans (hooray!) but it seems like the afternoon is going to drag. (boo!)
Well, tea helps! Onward, to conquer Friday!
Its raining! Yay! We are going to have precious little of this, I’m told, until the end of the year. I will savor every drop, as rain is some of my favorite weather.
This tea is good with absolutly everything. Sunshine? The honey and fruit is a lovely combo. Frozen winter? There is something warm and sunshiny about it. In the rain? A supurb tea for rain.
Its going to be a long day, I think, but hopefully productive and good.
Hmm. Not sure what I was expecting with this. Something more citrusy? But I like it! Its a green tea with mint, and, as it cools, indeed a bit of citrus. I am always timid around green teas, but I’ve got help with this one. Mint and lemon is a lovely combo, and help introduce this green and myself. Maybe we can be friends!
I feel like this review took a turn for the weird. Now back to your regularly schduled steepster.
Lupicia, I love you. Its real love, and not a generally high matinence love. However, because I love you, I feel the need to tell you that a flat vanilla tea is not your strongest suit. Neither this nor La Vanille (back to back tasting soon!) are particularly vanilla, and miss the charm and pop of your other blends I’ve tried.
Well, its not undrinkable, but its just not special.
This has been said with love.
I had a dream about going to work and working with difficult clients. Not cool, subconcious. I want to do awesome things while I’m dreaming, like flying, or going on adventures, or, as happened the night before, setting up a moon colony (we were trying to figure out how to get gardeners and chocolate makers to come up and set up shop). I dont wanna work in my sleep!
Oh well, on to the tea.
I really like that this is a green apple tea, and not a red apple tea. I like green apple the best. Light steeping is key.
I like it, but I dont love it. Still, I’m not about to dump it out anywhere.
Long day. Very busy, with a million people in and out of the office. Not to mention me thinking it was Friday and I had overslept moment this morning (neither being true. Both whew and aww, at the same time).
Tea. Its not going to feel right for this rich vanilla tea, I think. It gets hot here, and I’ll move to lighter “feeling” teas.
But tonight its a perfect and cuddly cup of relaxation.
I woke up this morning in a panic, convinced I was late, and thinking it was even the wrong day.
Gah. Dont know where, but it was a frantic five minutes.
Now, on to the tea!
I got both Vanilla and La Vanille when I put in my last order. I quest for the perfect vanilla tea, and I was interested in comparing and contrasting.
First up, in loose format, this is tiny. Granules instead of leaves, with the occational fragment of…. vanilla bean? Maybe?
This has not got nearly enough vanilla to please me, and an oddly bitter undertaste, which is not enjoyable. Its not so bitter that its undrinkable, but I am mightily disapointed.
Next time I’ll do a back to back test of this and Vanilla, to see what the difference actually is!
How am I getting so close to sipdown on so many beloved teas? This could be a problem.
I’m almost out of this batch of Paris.
Ah, Paris. I figure, if its absolutly got to be Monday, then at least I should have a beautiful cup of tea to usher me into the working week.
Come on, tea, lets go.
