323 Tasting Notes
This is the 3rd time I’ll have logged this tea, but I don’t care. haha
So I’m going to divulge some details about myself because it relates to my tea this morning sort of… I’m a receptionist at a spa. My dream is to make it big as a writer. That’s my ultimate dream. I just wish it was happening now instead of later.
Anyway, I was working yesterday and the one lady did a perm on a client and the smell of it was horrendous. I couldn’t get over how strong it was. I got the worst sinus headache ever from it. It was off and on all afternoon/evening after that. It was just brutal.
So anyway, I finally got it to fade enough that I was able to fall asleep last night… My husband is the sweetest guy ever. He heard me coughing around 11 last night and came in to see me after he was done baseball. I told him about my headache and he brought me the Advil and some cold water and everything.
So, this morning comes and my head is hovering on the tipping point again towards full out migraine pain… and I have to work today again. I can’t call in sick either ‘cause there’s lots of paperwork later to do. I get up, pop some Advil and go to the cupboard for some tea. I would have killed for a plain black tea, but I finished what I had a few weeks ago and haven’t replaced it yet.
I starting mentally scanning all the kinds in my head and all I could think of was… which black tea is going to have a mellow enough smell that it won’t send me into a full out sinus/migraine pain?
That’s when my beautiful red flowered tin looked at me and quietly said, ’I’m here for you.’
I opened it and the mellow scent of the Santa’s Secret came to me and didn’t make me want to feel sick. And what’s more soothing than peppermint?
Sweet, sweet heaven again in this tea. It is a delight I get to enjoy this tea again today. I am so pleased I have it still and it is doing the job I need it to do today. It is calming me and very comforting while being nice and mellow. I think I’ll grab this one again when I have a migraine.
I just finished this one today. As much as I enjoyed it, I’m not going to rush out and get this one again quite yet. I have other teas that I have to get through before I buy more. And actually, I’m gettin close to being done some of the other ones, so that’s good.
Man, do I ever buy a lot of tea… haha I have a coworker that is starting to get into tea, and it’s kind of funny ’cause I have all of my teas listed with their ingrediants in a word doc and I printed it for her… she was amazed at how much I have…
I’ve had this one about a year now and haven’t logged it yet! Oops!
I think mine is starting to feel the time on it. I should have added another tsp to the mix, but it is still good. It’s a nice apple cinnamon tea. I don’t drink much green tea anymore, but I’m definitely enjoying it. I’ll have to finish this one up this fall. :)
So, I mentioned that I would review this one again once I tried it at home.
It has made my home smell like sweet heaven. I love this tea so much. It is sweet and tastes almost like candy. I am totally in love with this tea. I hope this one is sticking around, because I am totally in love. I’m going to have to get more. I can see this one repeating what I did last year with pumpkin chai (I bought probably close to like 700g of it last year alone. The only reason I still have some from last year still is ‘cause my friend gave me some at the beginning of this year, and I started to slow down drinking it.)
Anyway, I’m VERY glad I got some of this, and that I got the collector’s tin of it. I’ll be getting more.
I’m starting to realize that in life sometimes you don’t realize how much you miss something until you finally have it again. That seems to be the case for me anyway. And sometimes it takes trying it again, for you to realize how much you missed it. This tea reminded me of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. I haven’t had that pie in years. My great Aunt Julie introduced me to that kind of pie a few years back when I was visiting her. I didn’t know if I’d like it, but I had to give it a chance. It was amazing!
Now, years later, I haven’t had any for a while, and when I heard about this tea, I knew that I had to try it.
This tea reminded me of how much I love strawberry rhubarb and how much I miss it. It is a wonderful fruity tea and it has the almost juicy taste of it. I could see adding milk and a little sugar could make it taste like the pie with ice cream mixed in with it.
I’m quite happy to have tried this tea. It is so refreshing. I haven’t tried it iced, but I definitely want to.
I had this as a latte yesterday in store. It was amazing! I knew I wanted to get some, but I didn’t know how much I wanted to get, so I asked the girl if I could get it to-go. And she had just made a blueberry jam latte and let me try it, so she asked if I wanted a latte and I said yes!
This is an amazing latte. It was a great sweet flavour and it was just… delicious!
I’ll review again once I have it at home as a regular tea.
This is a lovely tea! I’ve been wanting to try this one since it came out.
It’s not too strong, but it’s not weak either. I’m liking the fruity taste I’m getting from it. I’m wishing I had added just a touch more sugar, but it’s good anyway. I’m wondering what it would taste like chilled. I could see it being good.
I’m interested to see if it gives me the boost I need today to keep going. I didn’t sleep well last night and I’m really dragging. Anyway, Hopefully it wakes me up.
