1708 Tasting Notes
I don’t know what spiced plum is supposed to taste like, but I bought it out of curiosity. To be honest, it’s not my favourite. I do get fruity plum, with that dark, dank note or whatever it is that you get with plums. And I also get cinnamon. Not as much cinnamon as a cinnamon spice spice tea though.
I think my problem is that I’m not that into plums? And I should have known that? Oh well. It’s only an oz. :P
Om nom nom.
This is perfect caramel and marshmallow gooeyness. It’s another top-notch win from Della Terra.
Why did I only buy 1 oz? :O
(Oh, because I was greedy and wanted to try a ton of new teas too!)
Relaxing with this tea is helping to take away some of the stress in my neck from knitting troubles. Just… relax. :P I’ll figure this stupid cast-on eventually! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQOZ8GWM9sE)
OMG – I have 146 new notices since last I checked. Staying up to date on steepster is a lot of work!
THIS is a cookie tea.
The oatmeal and raisin are so perfect! And the cinnamon spices… I love it.
The mouthfeel on this one is VERY cookie like too. It’s tea magic. I don’t see why Della Terra does dessert teas so well, while Davids and Teavana make oily messes, but I won’t complain about it.
I can’t remember if DTT teas re-steep well or not. I’ll have to experiment.
So my order arrived today! I haven’t ordered Della Terra since September and was all out of everything aside from the Pumpkin Pie tea I was hoarding.
Now I have so many flavours to choose from!!!
I decided to start with this because I wanted to feel festive. I like it!
I wish that maybe the mint was a little stronger, but this is nice and creamy! 1 oz of this won’t last long. :)
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 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.
