944 Tasting Notes
I should probably buy an herbal ginger tea but this is all I’ve got so hopefully it’ll help settle my stomach. :( I was planning to go for a walk today but I just feel like turtling on the couch forever.
Maybe I’ll feel more human after I drink this.
You know it’s bad when I just don’t want to eat OR drink either. Not even my teas. #turtlesforever
Sorry for the pity post. Aside from feeling crappy, I’m not that miserable.
I’m on my second round of this. I meant to grab Salted Caramel but I pulled this one of the shelf by mistake and I regret NOTHING.
I love the spices in this. It’s perfect.
I needed this tea today.
I sabotaged myself so that I needed it. I couldn’t sleep last night because I was worried about my interview today so I went to bed at 1, and read this fic about Lestrade/Mycroft that was surprisingly good (just not a pairing I’d put any thought into) and I ended up reading until 3:30 just to finish the damn thing, and then if had an angsty ending. (http://archiveofourown.org/works/446107, if anyone is interested)
Good thing there’s a sequel?
K-Bear woke up right around then, so I got her back to bed, and then when she woke up at 7, I ended up cuddling her back to sleep so it was fitful for the last two hours. She kicks a lot and when I woke she had moved around so much that her feet were by my head. Little butt.
So I needed Tiger Tea to kick some sense into me. I think it worked. I think I had a good interview, but I didn’t get to say as much as I wanted. I don’t know if that means I was talking too much, she didn’t like me, or if she just hadn’t done a lot of interviews. Having sat on the other side of that table, I could see that third possibility, so I’ll just hope for the best!
Ok – ANOTHER easy sipdown from VariaTEA. (70). I’m now exactly at the point where my current teas equals my expected incoming teas. :O
This tastes like fake banana – like the bananas in runts. Which, actually is pretty good. And once this cools the cocoa and walnut flavours show up.
Yeah, I could probably go for more of this. I like it more than Tealux’s Chocolate Monkey.
So I made this at 9 as my last caffenated tea. Let’s see if I can get to sleep before 1 or 2 tonight! I just haven’t been able to shut my brain off the past few nights, but I’ve got an interview tomorrow at 10:30 and I need to be sharp. NEEEEEEED TO. I’m pretty pumped though. I can do this.
This is a decent cookie tea. It’s not sweet enough to be dough, but the walnuts are rather nice. It’s so freakin’ expensive though so I wouldn’t buy it ever again.
I like this, but I’m surprised at how strong the mate is, or how much it’s affecting me. It’s probably due in part to not sleeping enough last night (baby was up late and then I played Sim City til 3:30AM to wind down and lost track of time. Whoops). So I’m a little head-spinny after drinking this but I’m enjoying it!
I’ll just be careful with it.
And another sipdown! I’m so excited for all the new teas that it’s easy to work on moving some of the old!
This one was ok, but not my favourite. (73)
I made two cups of SoHo today and dumped both. The first was really flat and awful, so I thought I’d make it again with better results. Well – it was marginally better.
But THIS cup has renewed my faith in H&S teas. I made it super strong and poured into 250ml of milk and frothed it up. YES. I love it.
And another matcha gone! (74) This time I had it with hot water, as usually intended. It’s more bitter than I’m used to when I drink it in milk, and the chocolate isn’t quite as stand-out-ish, but it’s still a little creamy and sweet.
I would definitely restock this.
This is a tasty oolong, but not one I’d re-stock from Teavana as it’s much cheaper elsewhere. (I’d probably try Teavivre instead!)
But, I thought I’d finish up this sample as it was nearly 6 months old, and it was an easy sipdown! (75!)
