692 Tasting Notes
a cup from starbucks.
i’m kinda convinced that american’s don’t drink as much tea as the rest of the world ONLY because they don’t know how the hell to brew it.
everyone thinks that longer/bigger/more is better. i even see my roommate do this with coffee in his french press. he just let’s it steep and steep and steep. (also aren’t you supposed to not stir the grinds but let the water pour do the mixing? idk)
oversteeping is a painful reality.
this is a perfectly fine bag of tea and i should probably enjoy tea more when i go to starbucks because, you know, those coffee drinks are really too sweet. sugar-free or not.
THIS IS IT!
this is the tea i chose.
tea taste number 600!
and it was a good choice. i drank it at midnight on new years eve. along side a 15% stout. go big or go home!
this tea is delicious. simple and bold. i will definitely consider ordering a tin of this in the future. and for me, the sample queen, that’s pretty high praise :)
hello 2014! hello hello hello!
a classic tea from a classic company, brewed on the last day of the year.
this is tea tasting # 599.
important baby update, i live with a family and the baby took her first steps a few days ago. and somehow it’s totally made her EXTRA stoked on life! i mean, she was already stoked but now she reaches hyper proportions of excitement. it’s contagious and i feel lucky to be able to hang out with her so regularly.
future highlights will include choreographing dances and tea parties (duh!)
i might actually like this rose tea!
good job ATR. something about this tea is a bit more of an earthy rose perhaps. or could be the black base. either way, i might consider it my favorite rose tea so far. (don’t be mislead though, cuz in honesty rose teas really aren’t my thing. not my preference.)
i drank this last night too. the last day of 2013.
getting individual cups in my belly so i can start the new year with 600 teas tasted. this tea was # 597.
again with the cinnamon!
i think i knew which teas wouldn’t interest me from the advent calendar and saved them all for last cuz ie procrastinated. some that i expected to not like really did surprise me! but still a few of the teas were exactly what i expected. i gave it a go anyways :)
again i drank this one last night.
i bought chinese for the whole house to eat for new years eve dinner and we drank fancy beers until midnight. i was nice and relaxed and low stress.
i also finished the infinity scarf i was knitting.
i’m wearing it now. and it’s very comfy.
so that was the end to my year in a nutshell. and it was just as it should be.
