1355 Tasting Notes


One of my sisters gift teas to me.
Er… I’m finding this one really bitter. Maybe I did something wrong? Hmph.

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Today is a day to drink teas I like, I’ve decided, and after a long morning of stress and work, I’m going to take a moment with fruits D’ alsace, a much enjoyed tea that I’ve neglected for a while.
Fruity, rich, and with the Harney smoothness that I know and love. Yum.


Sounds like one I’ll have to put on the shopping list!

I’ve been dying to try this one for a while now :( Slowly working my way through the Harney samples I actually have in my possession, though ;P Nothing has blown me away yet, though.


If either of you would like a little sample, I would be happy to send you some. Shoot me a message, if you’d like!


That’s very kind, but I’ll just add it to the next set of samples I get from H&S.


That reminds me that I have a sample of this I haven’t gotten around to. I’ll probably brew it up tomorrow!

drank Je t'Aime by Nina's Paris

The late morning pot of tea. What to choose? A meh tea that I should sip down? A new flavor? No, an old favorite today. A warm sweater cup of tea, to sooth and relax.
I do love this, caramelly and vanillay and so very nice.


Yes! good choice!

The start to an complicated day. An uncomplicated tea is called for. Vanilla almond, in bags, is a foolproof tea, that I really enjoy. It helps on a long day

Gmathis suggested this on my post about French Vanilla earlier today, and I couldent resist. Well played, gmathis, well played.
Its a wonderful vanilla cloud, and just the right thing after a hard day.


I have to try this! I really need a good black tea for nighttime…


Well, if that worked, send all your tea, good things to read, some new, trendy clothes to ……. ;)

drank French Vanilla by Simpson & Vail

Not a lot of vanilla here. Tastes mostly of the black base.
My quest for a perfect vanilla tea is ongoing.


As is mine!


How are you on Vanilla Comoro? It’s the closest to sublime many of us have discovered.


I love comoro. Its the current front runner.

drank Creme Brulee by Simpson & Vail

Today this was a bit more custard-y, but I still get coconut out of this. This is very annyoing, as creme brulee is one of my favorite things, and coconut is not.
Oh well.

Steepster continues to be wonky.
We found out yesterday that my dog has cancer, and its progressed much faster than anyone would have thought. He is having trouble breathing and walking, and we dont think he’s going to last long. I’m devestated.
I think thats why I feel sick, but even so, I’ll throw all the tea I can at the problem. This always helps with headaches/stomach aches. Heartache, not so much.
Sorry for spilling, guys. This is a happy place, and I dont want to drag it down.


So sorry to hear about your dog. :-(


Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear :(


I’m so sorry. It’s so difficult to watch someone you love go through that. My thoughts are with you.


My gosh, I’m so sorry. Sometimes your grief or pain or fear feels so much bigger than you think could possibly fit inside of you. I am thinking of you.

So sorry to hear about your dog. My heart aches for you.


I’ve been there, and I’ve been there on Steepster — let it out. Steepster is a happy place — because sensitive people who love their dogs are here posting :) We want to hear and support you. I’m so sorry.


aww! Tea is good for heartache. It’s always sad when that happens to a pet.


I’m so sorry to hear of your dog. My thoughts are with you.


Thank you all for your kindness here. It means the world.

Steepster is acting fussy, I have had some bad news, and I feel ill. I drank this this morning, as its as fool proof a beloved tea as I can think of.
Its a lovely cup.


Hope you feel better!


I am sorry you had bad news. Hope you are feeling better.


Feel better soon!


no kidding steepster is being glitchy!


Glitching all day long for me. Can’t get into the database or onto the discussion boards at all. :-(


Thank you all.

This is one of the samples that my sister gave me for Christmas.
Now, coconut is not my favorite flavor, not by a long shot, but in the name of tea, I will adventure on!
Hmm, this smells most certainly of coconut when I steep it, and provides to have a light and not unpleasant coconut flavor when brewed up.
Hmm. I will not be buying any more of this, but I’ve enjoyed what I did have, more than I expected to.

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.
