1677 Tasting Notes
I started with this today and while it should have been amazing and wonderful, I didn’t time it properly and left it in too long and it’s too strong.
But I’m awake now after having had it!
(And that coffee from Tim Hortons that was hidden in a Lowe’s. Why are there Subways and Tim Hortons tucked away in hardware stores now? I don’t care – it’s where my bus gets off so I can always have Timmies before work if I want it!)
This was a quick and obvious sipdown as I get so excited about this tea that I MUST HAVE IT immediately. I’ll miss it, but it’s one less baggy floating around my collection, making it untidy. :P
(file that under weird reasons to drink a specific tea)
Thanks again MissB for surprising me with this!
So my throat feels less scratchier now than it did this morning. Let’s hope it stays that way! My head, OTOH, feels like crap. Advils, water and tea haven’t made a dent in it. :O Is it a sinus headache? Is it because I’ve had too little/too much caffeiene? Yipes.
I’ll just sit and sip away at this and eat carrots and dip and try not to think about it. I love Paris. Thanks MissB for the awesome sale on this one. :) I’ve got enough to last me awhile and now I have no reason to pay $15 shipping from the U.S.
I could only drink half of that DT Cold 911. I imagine it’s one to drink when your sinuses are so full that that would be the only tea you’d still taste.
It was too strong for me.
I like this one though. It’s one of my top picks from the Herbal Infusions set. That minty coolness at the end of each sip is quite nice!
Must…. resist…. this…. cold.
It’s only a sore throat. And maybe a little bit of light-headedness (although I get that sometimes just bc?). So maybe I can fight this before it becomes an issue? At the very least I hope I can avoid getting the kid sick as I don’t want to miss work at my new job because the daycare doesn’t want her there that day.
First step: drink this tea. Second step: no kisses! Third step: get better. :)
At least I haven’t lost my sense of smell/taste. :D
So I had another cup of this today, as it was free with my Teavana order. It still had too much sweetener, even after I picked out some of the rock sugar. The first cup was good as a sweet treat, but I couldn’t drink the second.
I made the mistake of steeping DAVIDs’ Chai on Life afterwards and couldn’t taste too much bc my mug/steeper were still contaminated. Yikes!
MissB surprised me with a few cups of this one, so I knew I had to have a cup today. Sadly I over steeped it and it was a little too strong (but still good). American Tea Room has a sale on now where you get 2oz of Brioche for free if you spend $30 but aside from Brioche there’s not much else there that’s tempted me yet. And I’m not spending $40 (w/shipping) on “free” tea. :P I"M NOT FALLING FOR THAT AGAIN.
Also, I have a well stocked cupboard.
