514 Tasting Notes
You know you’re congested when you can’t taste your tea… ‘sigh’ I’m so disappointed I can’t taste it, but it helped my throat feel a little better so that’s nice. I’m getting over the worst cold ever. I got to work on Wednesday, barely lasted two hours before I was finally able to go home and for the rest of the day/evening/night I slept. I only got up long enough to eat (goofy baby in the belly was hungry haha jk) and to go to the bathroom and then back to bed for me. It was terrible. Chills, aches, congestion that still won’t quit… It was just bad. And being pregnant, there’s nothing you can do but tough it out.
If I didn’t start feeling better today I was going to call the doctor’s office and see what he said, but I got up today (yesterday was also spent mostly in bed) and I actually feel alive! I’m congested and I’m still feeling a bit of sore muscles in my upper back, but otherwise I’m almost back to normal! Yaaay!! I definitely slept it off this time.
Being pregnant has really put a halt on my tea drinking addiction. I have really cut back and most of the time I don’t drink any tea, which is kind of weird for me.
So, last week I had this one. I thought I had logged it but I didn’t obviously.
This tea was so good, and so comforting that I took my first sip and then after that, I became like a ravenous animal. I gulped it down with such furry that I couldn’t believe it. It’s like I was trying my first cup of tea ever and I finally realized that it was amazing!
Now I’m sitting at work here and all I can think of is I want this tea. So, when I get home today, it’s the first thing I’m grabbing. Then, I’m going to go through the collection of teas I have and pull out the safe ones to drink and I’m going to start drinking them!
I’ve been dreaming about this tea for two days. I couldn’t find it. I knew I had it somewhere, but it was hiding from me… but then today, I happened to find it.
This tea is so good. I am going to treat myself soon to 100g of this one. How could you not like this one. It’s so smooth! And just what I needed today.
I had this one yesterday morning after a headache all night… trying to fight a headache without Tylenol or Advil or whatever has been very interesting…
And why am I avoiding these things, including my caffeinated teas?
I’m pregnant! Yaaay! I’m excited and scared and just can’t wait. I miss my teas, but I don’t know which ones are safe and which ones aren’t…
Anyways, yesterday I needed a comfort tea. I didn’t sleep the best and I just wanted something warm and awesome and I can have some caffeine and it’s all good, so why the heck not? This tea was like the sweet heaven that I have loved all along. It screamed of falling autumn leaves and the crisp cold of the weather changing. I could almost taste the frost on everything and yet it had the warmth of sweaters and mitts.
As much as I don’t want fall to come, I guess you could say I’m excited for it too in some ways. Or Maybe I just miss the teas… haha
Another decaf tea.
I like this one quite a bit. I’m trying to compare it to yesterday’s decaf, and I think the main difference is this one is a bit more on the floral side, and the Irish Breakfast is more on the malty side.
Both teas are very good. I’m happy with both and will probably stock both for the next several months so I don’t have to worry about my caffeine intake. But I can see myself being drawn to the Irish Breakfast a bit more ’cause of the maltiness.
Either way, delish!
Decaf tea! What a weird thing to have.
I’m so thankful for this tea this morning.
I’m working at a job for the last five (?) or so weeks, and today is going to be my second last day. I applied for the full-time position and even though I’ve been working in the position for this long, they decided to go with someone else. That makes me feel just so awesome. thumbs down
So, I’m trying to stay focused and actually try to work hard today, but it’s not really going super well ‘cause I unfortunately have mentally checked out.
Plus, this morning I didn’t feel super well. But that’s more or less passed now, which is good. Food and water is a good thing.
So, the tea! I got this on the weekend from the shop a couple blocks away that sells many teas (the store I believe I mentioned in my Wild Strawberry note). I picked up two decaf teas, this is one of them.
It’s tasting pretty much the same as it’s caffinated counterpart. The Irish Breakfast that I had was with Steeped Tea, whereas this one is with Metropolitan. Adding milk and sugar is making this one just so nice. I’m getting some happy vibes now coming through to me from this tea. It’s making the day much better. Much much better. Very thankful for this tea this morning. The cup is almost gone already. It’s just that delicious. I will be resteeping this one this morning. I have to. It’s too good to waste. Maybe it’s just my day, but yeah. Seriously, good.
I have not drank much tea the last week or so… I’m cutting down on my caffeine… And it’s been hard… but today I needed something. I am just so tired and I feel so drained. So, half a cup of this one for me!
It’s not that great… I wish I had had a good tea today to make it more worth while, but I’m getting a tiny bit of energy so, whatever. Anyway, this is my in a pinch tea. And it’s fine, but not a favourite.
Yum yum yum!!! Totally worth the like 20min wait at the post office to get it. Holy moly!
Anyways, I’m seriously regretting only getting 50g of this one. It’s very similar to movie night, which I seriously need to drink more! Anyways, it seems to me, without looking at the ingredient list, that this has got to have a very similar base to it as movie night with the exception of the green tea. Okay, I peaked. This tea as a lot more going on with it. And it’s the cinnamon in it and the almond and the coconut… and the caramel… and all the amazing things all combined that are making this a sweeter tea and it’s just heaven.
For real, I’m going to be buying more. There is no doubt about that one. It’s so delicious. Who knew that a popcorn-flavoured tea would be so amazing? I just don’t understand how this works. But I’m very blissfully unaware.
I forgot I had this sample today until I pulled out the collection to photograph. It’s probably three years old… uh oh… haha either way, here we go!
Well, I kind of forgot about this tea and now it’s warm…
The papaya isn’t too bad but it’s very mild and it’s woody. I don’t hate it, but I’m not really over the moon about it. Meh…
