1779 Tasting Notes
So I’ve been remiss in my tasting notes, but I have been working on Operation Sipdown today. I finished off two teas so far, and this one is a sipdown, courtesy of Sil.
I think I’m in agreeent with her that this is a decent tea, but not necessarily mindblowing. I want to add milk to it, and that is never a good sign. But, I’m happy I tried it because I had this impression i my head that Mariage Freres = INCREDIBLE.
Sipdown! I gave the rest of this to VariaTEA as well as a ton of other samples. I didn’t count them. I just kept adding. Mwahahah.
Hopefully she finds more of the Herbal Infusions teas that she enjoys!
This one is sorta flat. I’m less enthused about it now that I’m not drinking it on Christmas day. Sorry Santa’s Milk!
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!)
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
