691 Tasting Notes
a surprise holiday gift from Sil !
i was so pleased to get this extremely thoughtful mail that i saved the packet of tea and carried it around in my purse for over a week. hah. like a little xmas baby.
it was yummy. after brewing i announced to the room that it is the color of pee. which really just add to it’s charm. i really like Kitenna’s description of it tasting like sweet pretzels. THIS is the exact kind of thing i should go for when i’m looking for herbal options from now on.
rooibos is just kinda depressing at this point.
but this, this tea is delicious comfort in a cup.
Sil you are epic.
okay! this is one of my top picks from the noel teas.
but duh chocolate and apricot of course it is.
i’m watching documentaries still.
yesterday i finished “56 up” and today i’m watching “into the Abyss”. i could easily watch all of Werner Herzog’s documentaries multiple times. i plan to watch all the ones available on netflix before the new year starts hah.
and what-the-hell how did i even end up crocheting and knitting again? i knew the super basics a long time ago, and this week i taught myself granny squares and the purl stitch and i’m getting used to doing them smoother.
i know how that happened
it’s all your fault you amazing jerks.
i’m having fun!
from the advent calendar pile!
it’s quite a lovely pile.
i really like this one more than i thought i would have. citrus and airy. kinda like a light and breezy early grey ya know. these dammann teas are a joy to try.
do you guys have a milk frother?
has anyone tried that little david’s tea one?
is there one you have seen and recommend?
I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while!
And now I have two samples yay. Even more important because at the moment I’m a little holiday drunk.
I drank the dammann Christmas Tea. Then a white russian imperial stout beer named after The Dude in The Big Lebowski. And now I’m drinking my Tony Stark tea as oddree and I watch Pacific Rim and I also read Avengers fic. (Multitasking!) And earlier we watched the original Total Recall.
It’s been a really busy day yo.
I’m having a great time!
day 14 of the advent calendar that APPARENTLY I’m drinking all 24 teas today.
the problem is that if you asked me, at the moment, I would tell you that all their xmas teas are cherry teas. they really like cherry teas. just think fruit cake I suppose.
I sang a fruit cake song in chorus when I was in 6th grade. i think i sang the part of cinnamon.
day 23 of the dammann advent calendar !!
I actually drank this days ago and I’ll probably have my second and last cup in a few moments this morning.
I ordered the advent calendar as a way to taste 20 or so new teas. And seriously having all these individually wrapped tea bags is so fun! Easy to bring them along to parties as back-up or enjoy while out and about.
This tea smells super cherry. Like candy cherry. But after it’s brewed the almond is very strong. I’ve been tasting a bunch of almond related teas lately. I’m totally into it.
good morning! merry christmas!
I have tried SO MANY TEAS over the past few days and haven’t made notes for any, booooo :(
So even though I don’t like posting from my phone I’m gonna try to do it more often.
Yesterday’s movies include 2 documentaries, ‘The Woodmans’ and ‘Cutie and The Boxer’. Both about artists. Both very good.
Today I’m gonna start with ‘56 up’. It’s a series where the filmmaker interviews the same group of British children every 7 years. When I worked at a video store in Philadelphia I got hooked.
I drank this tea last night as I watched an episode of ‘my cat from hell’ at 1am. I had just learned about it at dinner and I was curious. What can I say :)
