1858 Tasting Notes

1858 tasting notes

Yesterday was a day of running around like a decapitated chicken.
An extra shift of work to help a coworker, a frantic day of paperwork and preparation for my main job, and then going home to work out and do my writing. I got my word count, but it was by the skin of my teeth, and then I collapsed into bed, twitching slightly.
Today I’m up early to help out my car-less boyfriend, and the usual November activities as well.
Time for Tea.
I pondered this morning, looking from one tea to the next, but I settled on this. It foolproof, to my mouth, and I needed a good tea to nudge me out into the day.


I often complain about running around like two chickens with BOTH heads cut off! There is, in our honor, a Headless Chicken Festival, which I have been far too busy to attend: http://www.miketheheadlesschicken.org/history
(Just a little trivia to make you smile :)

This has been enjoyable, while I had it. Once again, not convinced I actually taste any pumpkin, but the blend of spices is well balanced.
Its time to work on the fall teas, and sip them down, as my “winter” teas are starting to arrive. Heh.
I don’t know that I shall ever taste this again, as Davids is like that with some of its special flavors, but that’s alright.

Today was full steam ahead, all hands of deck, and other seafaring metaphors about being busy.
Gah. I was, through fault of my day, late for everything-lunch, leaving, etc. So when I did get a lunch break I needed tea. Boy I’m glad I got it. Fantastic.
Still enjoyable, still good, still an easy choice.
I hope tomorrow goes much better.


Baton down the hatches!

I still really like this, its easy and mellow, a perfect “I’m in a flaming rush!” tea. Still, it won’t be an immediate restock, as I have so many other teas to drink!

This tea is just so easy to drink. It goes down smooth, doesn’t require a lot of fiddling to prepare, and is mellow and tasty. You can enjoy it without thinking about it too much.
A very good tea to drink while working on the morning wordcount.
This is always the fastest of my DavidsTea’s to go, and today is no exception. Sipdown!

Cup of the morning!
I’ve got a work training all day today, but at least I got to sleep in! And I’ve got a little time to work on my writing this morning. Hopefully I can get it all done in time!
This is so light and so lovely. I do love almond.


I love this one.

Backlogged from last night. It was a cool night, and I wanted something with chamomile in it. This is that blend. Not too chamomile-y, due to the mint and ginger, but its good to sooth you to sleep.

I have written one thousand notes on Steepster! Hooray!
I know this is small potatoes for some of you, but I’m quite pleased. Steepster has given me such a lovely community of tea drinkers, and has given me the gift of a million new teas to read about, think about, and drink! Here is to another thousand notes!
On this rainy morning, nothing but Boston would do. To me, this tea is the essence of autumn, a gorgeous cup of crispness, mixed with a subtle mellow, that just feels like autumn incarnate. And one of my favorites, so it had to be the tea for today.
Hooray Steepster!


Wow, a thousand! Congrats!


Wow, that’s a lot! Congrats! :)


Congrats, keep it up! :D


Happy 1000!


w00t, super congrats!

Aha! I triumph over the freelance work! Hooray! I can turn it in and get paid, which is lovely. More money for tea. :)
I brewed this up as a post work reward. And I must say, this is not what I thought of when I thought of chai. I expect chai to be richer, fuller of flavors and with a thicker mouthfeel.
This is, sadly, none of those. I really like the idea of a vanilla caramel chai, but I don’t think this is is.
But many thanks for Ost for letting me try this!

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.
