1221 Tasting Notes
I had a late night where I couldn’t sleep – so I stayed up watching Coffee Prince. Yeah, don’t watch a funny show when everyone else is asleep, I had to hold back laughing.
Woke up and I felt just run over and too lazy to make decent tea. Yay tea bags! I just tossed this in some 200f water and slouched over my art desk to stare try and stay awake. I had Mr. Owly to keep my company. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=529215080442135&set=a.517063994990577.124981.516160198414290&type=1&theater
I’ve been too lazy to change his kimono, but I think I will when spring officially arrives.
Oh man, this tea is super yummy! It’s totally not eggnog season right now, but I was saving to try this tea for the perfect day, and I totally regret not trying it sooner!
The eggnog flavor is perfect, I like it more than my non-dairy options for eggnog. I wanna try steeping it with a cinnamon stick sometime as I do like a spicy eggnog.

I watched way too much Korean dramas yesterday – I got hooked on the show “Faith” and I think I watched 4 or 5 episodes. Since I vegged out the entire day, I feel drained today.
This tea kinda is like a green tea, with a little lotus seed and walnuts steeped up. I would love a bit more nutty flavor, but this tea is nice as a twist to regular green tea. If you like nutty teas and want something a little different, give this one a try!

Mmm, this tea is solid! I’m thinking I’m going to do another SteepCity order soon! Very impressed with their teas!
I’ve been drinking this one for 2 days while watching korean dramas.
Coconut grove is very sweet and coconutty! The taste is like big fresh, slippery slabs of coconut over top juicy sweet fruity white tea. The white tea is very flavorful and sweet. The floral is light here.
Coconut Grove gives me the impression of something sophisticated classic, with a bit of romance – but with a bit of modern hip from the coconut flavoring. If you like coconut and sweeter teas, you’ll love this one!

Actually a really bad sipdown. I still have a cough and it seemed to pick up today. Maybe the dry weather? I decided to put some fresh grated ginger and honey with this tea. EW. EWW. And I gotta finish it as I’m pooped from jiu jitsu and don’t wanna steep up another tea.
I really need to buy more caffeine free tea. I got maybe a couple left.
