it’s 7:30 PM and I am having an Assam. Ok, multiple cups. The coffee cake demands it. :) see previous notes.

drank Chamomile Vanilla Bean by Fusion Teas
1385 tasting notes

I notice my first note on this was 8 months ago. In that time I have become rather fond of chamomile. I give credit to Fusion Teas for making the one that changed my mind. Now I’m the one that asks my wife if she would like a cup. You get the sweet honey apple up front with the slightly sour chamomile bite late in the sip but then the vanilla kicks in and washes it away.

This sounds quite interesting! I seem to like chamomile when mixed with creamy/vanilla-y ingredients. Might have to attempt to acquire some of this to satisfy my curiousity!

This one is such a delight to sip. It has pleasant veggie aroma and a milky texture. It is complex in an uncomplicated way.

drank Earl Grey by Ahmad Tea

Earlier this afternoon I was feeling a little (lot) mad at the world. I steeped up my favorite comfort tea. It helped.

drank Pure Leaf unsweetened by Lipton

Why did I drink this? Why did I drink it at bedtime? I am a sucker for convenience. This is still not very good. sigh.

we all get suckered into a convenience item every now and then…

Sure makes you appreciate the good stuff, huh?

I don’t want to get to the point I can’t enjoy a simple convenient tea – but this isn’t it.

After a couple false starts I learned I needed to use more leaf by volume than I normally use. The front of the sip is white tea. The white peony remains solid but dives under the chocolate flavor that comes in next. Its white and Belgian semi-sweet curls that completely melt in the brew. The curls taste really good when you pick them out of the bag. As it turns kind of milky the peppermint kicks in for the finale in the aftertaste. This is white tea so everything is a little subtle. Whisper is the correct name for this but it works. A really good cup.

Helena

sometimes we have to screw up a tea a few times before we can make it yummy :D

gmathis

Tea you can eat. Mmmmm.

drank Rose Berry by Teaves Tea Company

The addition of strawberry to this rose tea really sets it off. Rose teas are often too perfumey and feminine for me. The strawberry adds a twist to the cup that makes it much more enjoyable. An even, balanced, cup.

drank Blossom Earl Grey by Twinings

First cup of the day. Heavy snow falling. White out conditions. There must be ice under it as I could not get the car up the hill to the road. I may be real glad later today.

Beautiful color. Awesome berry scent. The taste even with sweetener is a little tart but mostly flat. I am not a big herbal or berry drinker. Maybe this is good. Maybe I just don’t get it. It was not hard to drink. I just wasn’t a fan.

I first used boiling water and a 3 minute steep. It melted my face and the astringency hurt my gut. Definitely too hot and too long.

Second try – Using just below boiling water and a minute and a half steep results in a really tasty cup of Chinese black mixed with what I believe is Darjeeling. It is like this wants to be fruity but won’t fully commit. There is a hint of smokiness in the background. Smooth and delicious.

Like this one a lot. Thanks TeaEqualsBliss.

Hope your Christmas was filled with family and sharing. Mom fixed a fabulous meal. I am stuffed.

We are supposed to have a blizzard over night and into tomorrow. I really need to go to work. I don’t know how many more days they will let me work. I hate snow and ice.

Be safe.

Hopefully the most dangerous part of my day will be getting past my wife.

gmathis

She’s probably right, you know ;)

TeaEqualsBliss

We are supposed to get a doo-zee, too! Be careful! Glad you liked this one!!!!
