720 Tasting Notes

i ordered a cup while i waited for my sister to collect me from the coffee shop. (rostov’s tea generally stinks, but it’s hard to mess up peppermint. ya know.)

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!

Sil

Woohooo! Grats on 600!

drank Earl Grey by Dammann Freres
720 tasting notes

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 remember when my twin nephews figured out how awesome it was to stand at the baby gate and throw things down the stairs. They thought they ruled the world.

i’ll be honest. i can’t remember this cup.
i’ll have to try again.
but i’m still counting it as “drank in 2013”. i’ll just amend my note at a later date.

(sorry for clogging your dashboards up with my catch-up notes from yesterday. the holidays can be hard.)

wow what?!??!!?
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.

i barely remember this tea. and it turned my water a funny color.
i must have been so peaceful and serene while drinking it that it slipped my mind.

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.

i guess it’s just natural to drink apple teas and compare them all to each other.
this one falls somewhere in the middle of my tastes.
i think the flavors of apple and black tea naturally make a really complimentary combination, so maybe when too many other flavors get involved my interest starts to wayne.
glad i bought it though! apple teas are never a mistake :)
