556 Tasting Notes
my first of 5 tea orders arrived! between all the orders PLUS 2 new tea cups i’m obviously preparing for the coming winter months. tea and kindles is all i ever need. ever.
i’m so in love with this stuff.
i ordered this one especially for my sister. and lucky her, they sent me two 3oz tins for the price of one :) she loves earl grey and she loves rose teas and i just know for sure that she’s gonna love this one. i anticipate that half of it will be gone within 2 weeks time, easy.
IDK why but i added honey and milk to this first cup. things are going to crazy!
i have all this new tea to taste and i finally figured out how to get steepster working on my work computer again. everything has fallen into place.
here is a list of other things i want to tell you
- i am still reading all the Avengers and Sherlock fan fic
- i got into the Berlin Marathon so i will be going back to Europe in september
- at the encouragement of a friend, i now get monthly massages
Don’t hate me. I drank it. One from the orphaned household cupboard dusty tea pile.
The real reason I’m writing is to see what teas OTHER than brioche you guys like from the American Tea Room? I’m placing an order I think perhaps maybe yes :)
wanna hear something weird. this is one tea where i think i vaguely remember liking the david’s tea version better. that like NEVER happens ya know? Della Terra is far superior to davids always. so idek why. maybe i just find the creme a little lacking in creme-ness?
i still have one cup available left to brew. bear with me. i’m probably wrong. only human.
i bought 4 poetry books for my e-reader yesterday. and online tea today.
that concluded my post-thanksgiving shopping.
i did it all in my room wearing my jammies.
priorities, i haz them.
well it’s a yummy little tea isn’t it! and the sparkles make it quite holiday festive appropriate.
i don’t need a big tin of a pear tea, but i wouldn’t be surprised if i end up getting a sample of this on more than one occasion when i place an order.
speaking of which, i just totally placed 2 hearty tea orders (harney & della). now if only i could get the david’s tea site to work…
oh steepster I miss you so much! I used to be able to think about tea and read about tea and see what my tea friends were drinking all day while i was at work, but now, for some reason, the steepster website won’t load on my work computer anymore! I change browsers and I try different settings but nothing seems to fix it :(
I drank this tea when I went to go see Thor alone at 10am on a Sunday morning. I know the Asguardians are aliens and all, but they also have kings and queens (plus this isn’t a tea I’ve tasted before and wanted to try the sample.) queen tea! fit for a Thor!
(I’ll re-sample this tea and write about the flavor later.)
I don’t quite remember the tea. I think I was too distracted by the abs.
You heard me.
it’s a cupcake tea and I just got it for fun. I love fun!
It’s a cute and playful tea. But no attachments were formed.
Funny thing is, this is a free sample from adagio. I would have never looked to purchase it. And, surprise twist, my boyfriend loves it!
I’m not a hibiscus person, but he got one wiff of the bag and was immediately like ‘I want that’.
And I am not a person who will deny a man his tea.
Okay fine. I’m just gonna have to log all my teas from my phone since my work computer doesn’t seem to be cooperating. (I’ll just fix typos later I guess)
This tea smells awesome! But the flavor is rather meh. I have become a kind of chocolate tea fanatic over the past year, and in this instance, I’d rather have my dark oolong in a cup and my Nutella spread on my toast.
That does sound like a great breakfast though! Yum
idk why steepster is broken on my computer but will work on my phone. I haven’t been able to make regular posts in days. And posting from my phone is not fun and full of typos.
I drank this tea as still another agenda of drinking even the dreg teas of the house. At least once.
I do not like the flavor. And it surely didn’t relax me. Hah
this is a really good version of this tea, if you are a person who might really like this type of tea.
if you know what i mean.
it’s a nice one. i’m glad i have a few more cups worth.
