66 Tasting Notes

Nearly done with my box here.
A nice caffeine boost before my first classes of the semester! I’m excited.

Pretty good! Tastes really light—which after the new year, I’ve been looking forward to.
In a couple days I’m heading back to Baltimore, where my tea cupboard is, stocked to the gills with new teas to try. I’m excited to get back.

I think perhaps I have been a bit too harsh on this tea.
It’s the best one in my cabinet in my parent’s home—and I have a feeling I’ll be drinking this stuff a lot, considering the amount of work I have to do before I leave.
Now, back out to work on my igloo outside.

Good Morning, Chicagoland!
I must say, for a breakfast tea, this isn’t my favorite, but it’s delicious nonetheless with a touch of almond milk and stevia/sugar. It is certainly not an offensive tea!
Hopefully it gives me enough oomph to go get a palette pulled together so I can finally open the studio, three days late.

Had a cup of this last night—It used to be my favorite in high school. Not bad!
I sadly had to leave my tea cupboard in Baltimore for a month while I drink boxed tea at my parents house for a while. I miss my good teas…

I’ve been taking this into the studio with me in a glass, mixed with a touch of stevia and almond milk.
Definately what I wanted to drink when I was finishing up my painting today. :) My final canvas is DONE and looking okay!

Pretty average stuff—a friend’s mother gave me two teabags from this box, and I was pleased just to have tea over Thanksgiving break.
Not bad.

So, I’m sad to say I haven’t written nearly enough reviews of this tea, not enough to match up to the actual amount I drink it.
I make it pretty regularly. It had a good caffeine kick (at least, I think so) that keeps me awake during classes.
Today I made this tea for my Argentinian photographer friend in a handmade teapot thrown by my ceramicist boyfriend. We drank out of two identical mugs which matched the teapot. (A small teapot, for sure, holds about 2 1/2-3 cups of tea, but that’s usually just enough for a friend and I).
I used the leftover tea leaves to brew it again and again, as I’m working on a large-scale watercolor drawing/painting, and I needed something to keep me going.

Tried this last night, with a touch of almond milk and sugar.
Average in my book. Not enough spice for my taste (though let it be known, I drink rather spicy chais so if you’re into something a bit more mild, maybe this is what you’re looking for?)
A mother of my friend gave me this tea, plus a couple others from the Disney Wonderland series, and so far I’m a little underwhelmed with the taste of the teas. But, a tea gift is a tea gift, so I keep drinking them. :)

TeaEqualsBliss is right, if you’re not a vanilla freak than this is not your tea.
Sadly, I love everything and anything connected with vanilla.
This is an okay tea—I probably won’t own it again after this box, and I can think of many other teas that I would rather drink that are FULL of vanilla.
