drank Apricot by Harney & Sons

never would have expected to like this one more than the American Tea Room Apricot but hell, i just do. i will consider buying a small tin of this in the spring. i’m even adding it to my shopping list as a reminder, and heck i rarely do that.
it’s not like amazing or anything, but i could easily see myself chugging a cup on a regular basis when the sun is out. know what i mean :)

oddree

I want to try this one!! I seem to find Harney teas surprisingly superior too. Subtle tea is subtle.

Shmiracles

you’re gonna dig it oddree. pretty sure. (no pressure! haha)

drank Vanilla Black by Harney & Sons
741 tasting notes

this tea seems pretty well liked by steepsterites, and i’m always glad when someone finds a tea to love xox … but … and you knew there was a but … it did not impress me. i’m gonna have to give it a few more rounds of course, once is never enough, but i’ve met other vanillas i liked more.

super fun! and i always love a vanilla mint combo.
only one scoop of tea left. and the solitary piece of popped popcorn just keeps floating around in the tin. bop bop.

oddree

I wasn’t gonna steal that kernel…

damnit
i have a lot of teas to make notes on.
the ones that left an impression i can remember fairly well :)
but this one, not so much.

Terri HarpLady

I hate when that happens :)

oddree

I agree. Kind of a weird stevia aftertaste?

drank Caramel by American Tea Room

a fine enough caramel tea. simple.
not really a strong flavor at all. and not very sweet.
i bet it would benefit from some agave and milk.

Yay dammann!

I’m attending a potluck tonight and I’m bringing donuts and tea. I just spent a good hr organizing my tea and then deciding what to bring and packing it up.

I watched ‘please vote for me’ and ‘waiting for Armageddon’, two documentaries. And now I started ‘roman holiday’ but I think I’m gonna finish it later.

If I focus and stay determined, I will be able to reach 600 different teas tasted by the end of tomorrow. I think that’s a nice goal. Fun to try at least. :)

This tea is not really my thing. I’m not a green lover and not a fan of cinnamon and though the description doesn’t say cinnamon it’s the scent and flavor that I’m getting most. It overrides the ginger and orange for me. Too bad.

The beginning of Roman Holiday is real cute btw.
And Gregory Peck is a total hunk.

I actually walked Via Margutta today! (Where Gregory Peck lives in Roman Holiday.)

my sister got this in a mixed tea christmas gift box set.
and it was pretty good!

i watched The Hunger Games tonight.
and knitted a scarf 3 times.

JustJames

hee hee hee.

Cavocorax

Yay – Hunger Games! :O
I am currently un-knitting my scarf but happily it’s only 3 rows.

Shmiracles

well, it wasn’t a FULL scarf, but it was a good one and a half feet. i kinda wanna start over a 4th time, but the INSANITY MUST STOP! haha!!
i have issues.

Fjellrev

Nice, I still haven’t watched the Hunger Games yet. Hope you enjoyed. :)

Cavocorax

Awww. That’s a lot of frogging!

another sample from the dammann advent calendar.

i’m watching Leviathan now. it’s an experimental film so it’s not for everyone.
it is an unedited and raw and crystalized visual window into time spent of an industrial fishing boat in the middle of the ocean.
but it is making me think about so many things i never would think of otherwise! so good!
often times the ocean sounds just like contemporary orchestral music. and the life of everything just keeps pushing on.

i took this from wikipedia but i think it says a lot about the film in a good way
…the film “plunges us into the sights and sounds of this visceral business”, … raw images and natural sounds. Edited together into a non-linear and virtually wordless whole, it creates a briny immersive effect that is almost hallucinatory." … the film “conveys the brutal toll that the enterprise takes on the workers and on the ocean, …the sea threatens to exact its revenge on humanity. … avoids exposition and context, unfolds almost entirely in the dark and often verges on hallucinatory abstraction. Where most documentaries prize clarity, this one attests to the power of estrangement.”

estrangement! that’s why i’m having such an experience. it’s definitely my style.
at home floating and alone. or also like Frances Ha said “I like things that look like mistakes”.

oddree

Yes, like listening to a live orchestra or going to the opera and just letting your mind drift all over the place. Plus the ocean, which is as awesome as you can get.

Shmiracles

the ocean is a fucking serious beautiful monster.

unfortunately, now i have a lot of ‘tea homework’ because i’ve been drinking tons of new teas but haven’t been properly logging many of them.

i bought a box of this from the health food store.
if you ask me, no other herbal tea can compare to the relaxing qualities of tulsi.
i hope i always have a box of this in my cupboard. always.
