drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

There are not many teas that I order over and over and over again, but this one is a constant in my tea cupboard. This is my third time ordering this one. This time I ordered the 50 tea bag size (and filled up my other two tins). I drink this ALL the time.

drank Cinnamon Roll Honeybush by 52teas
308 tasting notes

It’s finally snowing here today. This tea is perfect for an afternoon of reading a book under a blanket. It’s been a while since I’ve had this one and I feel like the flavors have muted a little. It’s still great, but the cinnamon was the most present flavor today; less of the bakey bread and icing flavors.

Here’s to good books and blankets!

Mmm, today was supposed to be a god book and a blanket, but ended up being errands instead. I’ve high hopes for tomorrow though – Perhaps I’ll finally give this one a shot from my 12 teas of Christmas. Thanks for the idea! : )

Kristin

I’m thinking tomorrow will be more of the same. :)

drank Thai Chai by Adagio Teas
308 tasting notes

Now this is the tea I was trying to get when I bought the Harney’s Thai Tea. Last weekend I went into my local tea store where I first had this tea and asked to buy it despite the crazy price on it. They were out so I quickly said “Where do you get that tea, Adagio?”. She said yes. I must have thrown her off with my surprise question to get an answer. So, I ordered it from Adagio at a much much lower cost.

I love this tea. It’s like tea, no wait, soup, no wait, tea. Nom. It’s got this interesting savory quality to it that’s killer. It tastes like someone poured full fat coconut milk into my tea. If you like coconut, then this tea is for you. It’s coconut and ginger and a little lemongrass. The other flavors in the tea are just mild accompaniments to the coconut. This one is really great.

I think I might like the regular sleepytime better, but this is doing the trick tonight. I don’t buy a lot of boxed grocery store teas (yes, yes, call me a snob), but I like to keep a box of sleepytime tea in the house.

I have a tummy ache and this is the only thing I have in the house remotely like a sleepytime or a tummy tamer. It seems to be doing the trick, but I’ll have to pick up some sleepytime tomorrow at the grocery to have some in the house.

drank Wild Strawberry by Adagio Teas
308 tasting notes

I picked up a sample of ‘Oscar Wilde Strawberry’ today at Atticus Tea in Park City. I know they get a few of their teas from Adagio and this one looks to be an Adagio tea so I’ll review it here. This tea is pretty good. It has a nice strawberry flavor, not too much though. It’s tart. I added a fair amount of agave nectar to it. It has no medicinal flavor like many fruit teas can get.

I definitely like it, and yet, could not add more of it to my shopping cart when I was in the adagio site a few minutes ago. I like it, but cannot imagine wanting more than a sample size of it. It’ll be nice for a few cups.

And, I have to give props to Atticus Tea for giving this to me for free. I was buying something else and asked if I could have a 1/2 oz of this to try. They wouldn’t charge me for it.

drank Thai Rooibos by Harney & Sons

Meh. I really wanted this to taste like the Thai tea I got from Atticus Tea in Park City, but it does not. It is one dimensional and all I can taste is watery cinnamon. Don’t like this one.

“Atticus Tea”! I love the name of that tea shop. It’s like an homage to the main character in the series I’m reading—a 2100 year old druid named Atticus O’Sullivan (from “the Iron Druid Chronicles”). He brews potent herbal teas in his bookshop/apothecary.

Kristin

I think they named it for Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird. Sadly, because the shop is on Main St in Park City, their tea is priced about double what it should be. Rent is high there. Alas, I might wind up shelling out some cashola when I am up there next week to get the Thai Tea that I wanted.

I guess it’s winter that makes me do it, but it seems like every cup I make nowadays is some sort of mint chocolate. I’ve had ‘Read my Lips’ A LOT lately. It’s late tonight so I didn’t want the caffeine so I went with the Mint Chocolate Rooibos. It’s definitely not as good as ‘Read my Lips’ but it hits the spot. It makes me happy but when I am done, I won’t remember it.

I seriously love this tea. I love it so much that I keep moving the pouch to work and then home and then back… but then I forget where I left it last. I was very excited to find it hiding in the back of the tea drawer today. I swear it wasn’t in there the last time I checked. Anyway. Love.

This one looks amazing….sad I missed it. Hopefully a reblend happens.

Kristin

This one really should be in the permanent collection! I’d offer to share, but I don’t think I can. ;)
