Woke up to this today. Single serving bag was provided at the Bed & Breakfast we stayed at. Don’t normally drink this much caffeine, but it was what was available. Pretty standard black tea. Gave me some ZING and then I had my standard crash 3 hours later.

One cup kept you going for 3hrs? Wow!:)

I’m VERY sensitive to caffeine.

Meh. Not bad nor good. More of my Christmas gift sampler. I’m detecting a spicy note in this that I tasted in the other Zhena’s sampler. Celeryish again. My common sense tells me no one would put that in a mint tea. But it bites the sides of my tongue and lingers just like that.

This was bitter as all-get out. Better with milk and sugar, but not really worth it. It did make the whole house smell lovely, so maybe it will be great steeped, but not consumed.

I’m not sure about this. It is such a strong chamomile and the appeal of chamomile is usually its mellowness. It tastes exactly how it smells: like an herb garden. I suppose chamomile and fennel are the dominant flavors. Very spicy and it kind of burns my tongue.

EDIT: Scratch all that! I figured it out. Celery! It tastes exactly like celery.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea

This was part of a tea sampler Christmas gift that I received today. Yay tea! My caffeine problems normally keep me from drinking black tea but I’m gearing up for a long night of festivities. This smells yummy. Orange and sweet. Just tastes like black tea until I add milk and sugar which transforms it into a dreamsicle.

Heart! I’m so glad I finally found this. I sniffed the pepperminty box all the way home from the store and was burning with anticipation. My steeped cuppa smells strongly of peppermint. The taste is more honey-vanilla, with a cool peppermint aftertaste. It reminds me of celestial seasoning’s honey vanilla chamomile…with peppermint. I love it. I just wish I’d taken note of the green tea aspect before gulping it down in the evening. Here’s crossing my fingers for sleep tonight!

It’s decaf though, right? I’ve had this in the evenings with no trouble before.

Yes, it is. I’m just super sensitive to caffeine. Decaf eliminates jitteryness and panic attacks, but it still keeps me up.

Ah, I see. Good luck with the sleeps!

You guessed it. Sore throat! Tag says “Every smile is a direct achievement.” Very true when feeling under the weather.

Hope that in the six days that have passed [great Poseidon, I’ve only gotten through six days of logs?!] since you logged this you’ve gotten better!

mindala

Haha. Feeling much better thanks to some antibiotics, but tea certainly helped me through it all.

drank Jade Fire by Rishi Tea
124 tasting notes

Well, I only steeped 2 minutes this time, as directed. I’m adding a couple rating points, but I’m still not happy with the flavor. Maybe this is supposed to taste bitter. My mouth feels so dry after each sip that I want to chug a glass of water now.
