4034 Tasting Notes

73

Finally got around to trying this one, though it’s a bit silly given that i’m sick. I wanted a vanilla tea though so i pulled this one out. it’s for sure a black tea with a dash of vanilla – the base, as angrboda mentioned is heavily present. I’m ok with that because i like being able to taste the tea bases. :)

drank La Naissance by Fauchon
4034 tasting notes

finally sat down to have some of this, which is decidedly stupid given that i’m sick but whatever! it’ my tea and i can drink it when i want :) This is quite delicious, though i do taste hints of floral notes in the background, making this less enjoyable than some of the recent fauchon teas that i’ve tried. I don’t hate this though and the almond flavouring is delicious! I’ll have to give them one another shot once i’m sure my tastebuds are back to normal heh

Bummer that you’re sick. That’s no way to end the year! If you have any of that elderberry left, drink it! And feel better soon!

I’m nearly down to the bottom of this tin finally which makes me sad but also gives me an excuse to pay attention for the next damn fine tea sale so that i can restock this one and pick up the new one, provided i like the new one. thankfully this tea hasn’t gone the way of 49 and i still love it :)

They just announced on twitter the next 4 orders gets a free field mug. But that was on hour ago, so not sure how many orders would have been made already.

Sil

doh.

Sil

i actually want to ask them about making a custom 3 pack a la tiger assam, red tailed hawk and caravan.

boychik

sipdown! (182) my cupboard WOULD have been at about 155 today and I easily would have made it to my dec 31 goal however i received my package from Miss B yesterday and now i’m up at 182 haha. that may change a little if i get enough energy to pull my swaps together that need to go out but i’ll consider my goal achievable and just aim for 140 by the end of January. I had a rare thought that i would try to get my cupboard down by 10 every month in 2014 so that by November i’d be able to order 60 teas and still be under 100 haha. I’ll probably still aim for that, along side of my goal of not having teas older than 10 months in my cupboard. :)

I had the last couple of bags of this tea as a latte and i’m glad that i did. it makes this a MUCH better cup of tea by making it a creamier, stronger chocolate tasting tea. Not a restock for me, but it was tasty to drink.

This yo-yo tea cupboard diet sounds like quite the struggle. Yikes!

Sil

Not at all. Lol it makes it fun for me :) another thing to plan and organize!

Fjellrev

haha right on, then!

drank Black Dragon Pearls by Teavana

Another tea from this morning. Slow going day filled with lots of naps and a few cups of tea to keep me hydrated! Almost time for soup too heh. Another averagely good cup of tea. I’ll stick to teavivre’s and mandalas though.

drank Harvest Spice Tea by The Tea Spot
4034 tasting notes

I’m trying to stick to teas that i am familiar with today or teas that have a really strong flavour since my senses are a little diluted today. I cannot stand being sick. I’m barely getting work done today and sitting takes all my energy. Nap central is my house today.

This tea came courtesy of Terri! I have no recollection as to whether i asked her for this one or she just sent a sample my way…either way it’s pretty good. The cinnamon is a little sweet in this one – but i found that today, drinking it side by side with a black tea made it perfect lol when i’m not sick again i’ll give it a shot again. But i like this mix of cloves and orange.

Lala

Hope you feel better soon!

Kamyria

Feel better!

Fjellrev

Rest that little head of yours, Sil!

Sil

Thanks guys!

Hope you feel better. “Sitting takes all my energy” That is exactly how I feel. Accomplishing next to nothing at work today.

edit: i mad it to 157..but then miss B’s tea showed up AND i’m sick so i can’t drink a whole lot that’s new. So not going to make my dec 31st goal but i did get pretty close AND didn’t buy a bunch of things i wanted to as a result :)

Amariel

I do like this one…hope it, or something like it, becomes permanent.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
