1187 Tasting Notes

drank Cookie by Lupicia
1187 tasting notes

I’ve been curious about this one for ages, so I picked some up when I was in Lupicia last week.
It smells lovely, and it brews up to be a butter cookie. Almost short bread like, I must say, buttery and rich.
Theres a vauge coffee note in it, which I may find a little problematic. I’m going to keep tinkering with the steep time on this, but generally I like it!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Fabulous start to the morning, by walking directly into my desk chair. Now I have seriously stubbed my foot. Ow! And I’ve gotta go to work. I’ll wear some supportive shoes. I am very clumsy.
Its getting cold around here, which is delightful. I love the cold weather. Love it to bits. And this tea is wonderful for a cold fall morning.
As I was scooping this out, I saw the bottom of the tin. Eeee. Surely I havent drunk it that fast? Nope, nevermind, yes I have.


Walking into things happens to the best of us haha.

A cup of this at lunchtime, from Peets directly. I dont often buy tea to drink during my lunch breaks, but its feeling brisk and cold today, and I could use some tea. (I could also use a thermos so I can make tea on the go myself. I should do that.)
With this I can really taste the difference between loose leaf and bagged tea. Loose is superior in the subtleties and complexities of flavor. This bagged cup, while very good, lacks some of the depth of the thing.
Well, never look a gift cup of tea in the mouth, eh? Er, actually that makes no sense, does it. Move along, nothing to see here, folks.

I think I underleafed this today. The note of pumpkin is not nearly so strong.


I use a lot of leaf for this as well. A tsp and a half for eight oz, and a little more than that for 12 oz. When you get enough leaf the tea is perfection.


Agreed. This is one of my pumpkin favs.

drank Sugar and Spice by DAVIDsTEA

Its brisk today, so I thought I’d attempt this again.
As I thought, it suits much better in colder weather. Its a warm, enjoyable cup this afternoon, though I still wish there was more sugar to this sugar and spice blend.

This isnt anything special, a basic black tea with some lemon in it. Teabags, no less. But its a very nice version, within those perameters. I love my compex teas, but I like to have a few very simple standbys on hand for a day when a quick cuppa between projects is needed.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1187 tasting notes

Ahhhh. Opened my tin of this, inhaled the aroma of Paris, and was instantly filled with peace and delight.
Thats a bit of a problem, as I should get a move on. Bleh. Do not want to go to work today, just want to sit around, sipping tea, and write some more of the novel.
Well, such is life!


I know the feeling!


i love this one. i’ve only had two tea bags worth….. but beautiful they were.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Comoro has returned to me! Hurrah! I opened up my new bag of it and was smacked in the face with vanilla loveliness. Ah, this is good to have back in my cup.
So I may have run out of Vanilla Black, but its caffine free little sister has come home to roost for a while.

drank New York Blend by Harney & Sons
1187 tasting notes

I’ve already got Paris and Boston in my cupboard, and I’ve had Florence and Tokyo, so I figured I’d round out the city collection with New York.
This is a combo of things I do like, chamomile, ginger and pepermint. And its pretty nice, a mild tea, which will suit very well on days when I need a gentle tea, or something to sooth my stomach.

Sounds like a world tour to me!

Aha, green tea. Thats why its not brewing up dark. I get ya.
Its very plummy, I’ll give it that, but its not exactly rich. I find this to be a little weak. Hmm. I had a couple of cups of this prior to logging it. Double bagged is the way to go with this.
Thanks to Josie Jade who sent this may way.


That’s pretty much been my experience with all of Republic of tea…

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.
