366 Tasting Notes
Ok this is cup two of the day and this time around I am really getting the Lapsang! I’m also getting a little chocolaty sweetness which is most welcome this morning. It is super dreary and not looking too great outside. But I’ll take it…any day I don’t need the A/C is ok by me!
Thanks TeaEqualsBliss for this sample. It’s an OK tea for me, not quite the kick I need to get this gloomy and rainy day started. It is sweet and slightly vegital. Not a bad start to the day…but I need a kick in the pants this morning, :)
Thanks to Revolution Tea for the sample. I tried this earlier this morning to kick off my birthday. Talk about lavender tea! The smell of the lavender nearly knocked me over…in a good way! I liked that the bergamot took a back seat with this tea. Full review coming soon to the blog. :)
I picked up the bagged version of this at the same sale where I purchased the British Breakfast Decaf. This isn’t as creamy/buttery as I like my milk oolongs, but it a nice way to start my morning and does fill in in a pinch when one doesn’t have a proper method to brew tea correctly at work!
I picked this up at a going out of business sale at a local natural foods store last night for 40% off. I figured I’d give the decaf variety a go since they were cleaned out of the regular. It was ok, I did ice it as it was a bit too warm in my neck of the woods last night. I think this might be one I need to sweeten. It seemed to go pretty bitter pretty quick. But I’ll give it another go and rate it then.
This is my tea of the morning. I’ve been up for two hours now on and Sunday and I’m not happy about it. But I am happy to have a whole tin of this tea in my cupboard! It’s funny it still smells like Fruity Pebbles to me – which is not a bad thing…just different! It certainly is a nice relaxing cup of tea to ease me into a day when all I want to do is head back to bed!
But I’ve got to pack up a nice flat rate mailer for TeaEqualsBliss of samples! Suppose I should go see what she’s got so as not to duplicate! :)
I finally tried this…thank you Derek Chew for sending me the sample! I agree with K S as to the smell of hay, but I was also getting some fresh cut grass in there too. I’m not a huge fan of white teas and no I don’t know why…so this was new for me. I liked it, but I think I might see if I like it better cold brewed.

This has become my tea of the afternoon at work. Why? Because when I drink it I don’t feel like I’m sitting in my office with loads to do. Instead I’m sitting in the parlor of 221b Baker Street with Holmes (as played by Mr. Cumberbatch) waiting for the next case. It is so smooth and relaxing I love it.
This is pretty good (purchased from iHeartTeas.com). Not too tart and I like the light taste to it too. I have a feeling thsi would be awesome iced! I know what I’ll be trying this weekend!
It has been a little stressful at work today. Getting treated like a child always makes for “good times”. But then I managed to schedule two very difficult people in short order so woohoo! As a nice afternoon treat I made this tea again because I find it to be a soothing black tea. I love the aroma of the Lapsang and the taste of the Keemun…ahhh tea take me away!
