1000 Tasting Notes
My 1,000th tasting note and the beginning of my Harry Potter marathon. I found the movies for $2 each at a Black Friday sale :)
This tea is great, as always!
I mixed this up in a giant mug with a little hot water, a bit of sugar, and milk. Pretty good, though I should have used a whisk – its a bit clumpy at the bottom. Still tasty. Hopefully this will help get me out of my tea funk. I’ve been drinking tea lately, but nothing is really tasting that great to me. Maybe a Black Friday order needs to be planned – maybe I just need some new flavors to rotate…
Starting my day with this cup of roasty, toasty deliciousness! I’m glad this tea is very reasonably priced because I’m going through my tin at an alarming rate. Really nice and full-bodied, no additions needed.
A longer than normal steep time and a good shake of the bag tonight resulted in the pumpkin coming to the party! I’m sipping on a delicious, rich gingered pumpkin cheesecake tea that is a great accompaniment to my Hulu marathon.
I found a little bit of this tea tucked in the back of my cupboard and it is turning out to be a delightful morning tea. There is a fair amount of malt and heft which I love in a breakfast blend, but there is also a fair amount of astringency – even after adding milk. Hmmm, its good, but I like some of my other breakfast teas better.
Nothing is better than Queen Catherine and an Everything Bagel with cream cheese and turkey for breakfast. The Queen provides just the right amount of smoke and heft to complement a savory meal.
Am I having this tea for breakfast with a delicious peanut butter cookie? Maybe :)
I’ll probably have an everything bagel later on – but no worries because this tea is amazing with just about anything. I love the sweet smokiness. It is definitely filling my craving this chilly, windy morning.
Mmmm! This is amazing as always. I have LOTS of little specks in my infuser tonight. If you get some of this tea, the specks are where its at! Yum~ really helping my stress levels right now.
Wow, after reading these reviews I was terrified to try this, but as I’m having trouble being the least bit tired tonight I decided to give it a go. It really reminds me of CS Original Sleepytime but without the slight mint. With a bit of sweetener it isn’t that bad and if it helps me get to sleep sooner rather than later I’ll probably throw this or the mint version in the cart next time I order from Harney.
I have no idea how long this steeped for – the online timer I use had an error so it didn’t start and I didn’t realize it for awhile. However, the Queen is just that awesome! I don’t think you can ruin this tea – delightfully strong, slightly smokey with a hint of caramel/fruit today. Maybe she will give me the energy I need to finish reorganizing my classroom (I decided to completely rearrange yesterday, which has become a much bigger project than I anticipated…)
