739 Tasting Notes

i like cardamon! i do i do. i like how it looks in it’s little pod and i like how it tastes and smells in my purple tea tumbler.

idk why i am so weary of cinnamon. i must have had some scaring experience once that has given me ptcd (post traumatic cinnamon disorder).

but heck if cardamon doesn’t win this cup! yay delicious

Thanks to Anna for this sample!

from the Traveling Tea Box :)
another nightly cup of herbal. fresh and warm in the late evening.
sorry i’ve been neglecting you steepster :(
but lately i’m really into my dance class and finishing up marathon training and my new kindle and not hanging up my laundry and never getting enough sleep instead.

all the un-sampled teas i have are herbal, so my tastings have been kinda slow going.
but due to a slight chill in the air and my perpetual slight dehydration due to marathon training, i actually drank 3 herbals last night :)

this one, i never finished the cup. and i could say that it was because i was too tired? but i think it was probably just because i didn’t really like it. it was just a sample and i don’t have any more, so not to worry.

my new new kindle? it’s on my doorstep right now! i can’t wait to go home and cuddle it. can’t! wait!

drank Foxtrot by Adagio Teas

this is a tea bag that was sent to me from Scheherazade!
i’ve been actually enjoying my chamomile lately, who would have thunk!
i mean, this is just a big old reminder to me to not be too opinionated.
but really, sure i’m an enthusiastic person, but opinionated is probably not a word that most people would use to describe me. so i think i’m safe.

a crazy thing is happening. i’m getting my own office!
i’m gonna have a mega tea set up happening in there. and look-out cuz if anyone comes in and shows even a little bit of interest i will probably make them smell my teas. MAKE them smell!
i’m gonna have to buy a few cactuses for the window.

drank this last night.
not exciting but not awful! so, yay.
the weather cooling off a bit in the evenings is really making herbal tea drinking much more desirable. i suspect my sister and i are really gonna tear through my stash. which is good because it’s true i need to get it a bit more under control before i can shop again.

i’ve learned a lot about what i like and don’t like in my teas. or basically, drinking all this tea has helped me to know what my preferences are. so i’m looking forward to rebuilding my tea stash once i have the space.

ikr i mean who even AM I?!?!?
i’m drinking a camomile tea!? and bagged tea at that!?

but listen, i did a 20 mile long run this morning and it made me stupid and the day all kindsa weird. (but ya the run went really good)
example. i’m reading a story in which Tony Stark is a werewolf and i’m watching season 2 of a show called Secret Eaters (crap telly) on youtube. so yes. totally weird and stupid.

this camomile is easily covered by the spearmint! i don’t hate it :)
win for grocery store tea. and good for LAAAAZY tea making nights.
i’ll admit my expectations were low.

i ended up in a youtube vortex after watching this video
The Metamorphosis by The Royal Ballet

i’ve been taking a modern dance class and i’ve started doing this ridiculous day dreaming thing where i imagine finishing my BFA in dance. but then my body kindly reminds me that dance is a thing for the young. xo

OMGsrsly

Tony Stark. Is a werewolf.

Ok, now I’m curious!

Shmiracles

haha it’s fanfic. and fangirls. be crazy.

OMGsrsly

I’m on the fringes of Supernatural and Teen Wofls fandoms. I know crazy. :D

Shmiracles

OMGsrsly

drank Mango Fruit Punch by DAVIDsTEA

i’m drinking herbal. cuz i need to get better sleep. cuz let me tell you, i went to bed early last night on the super rare occasion that i was actually tired AND could also fall asleep. and as a result…? I HAD THE BEST FREAKIN RUN THIS MORNING!
i was resenting the fact that i had agreed to get up early and start running at 6am when it’s still dark out and everything is annoying cuz it feels kinda wrong. but my pace was probably the fastest it’s ever been for 10 miles. and if not THE fastest, then damn close to it.
thus, HERBAL!

too bad i find most herbal boooooring.
though i’ll snap out of that eventually i hope.

i love the smell of this one! but but but the taste is kinda just fake. i’d rather eat a mango. or an orange. or maybe even an orange squeezed into hot water.

(TMI! reference to lady parts and stuff! bee doo bee doo!
today i am celebrating my 7 year anniversary of being sterilized. i’m gonna honor it with a craft beer and the watching of the Agents of SHIELD pilot episode. Happy Comic Book Day ya’ll!!)

keychange

Just so you know, no post is TMI for me, and I’m so glad you feel awesome about your decision! also, congrats on your decision to run—I can barely make it up a flight of stairs without huffing and puffing myself LOL.

OMGsrsly

Happy anniversary! :D Also, congrats on the run.

Ali Bee's Bake Shop

hahaha! yay for no unexpected pregnancies!! ? I approve of your choice of celebration

Cavocorax

Congrats! I’d be tempted to do the same. One kid was all I wanted.
And holy man, that’s pretty early to get up and run. I’m impressed!

Ali Bee's Bake Shop

You actually inspired me to get up before the sun and work out myself today. Well done.

Shmiracles

YAY! i do like the quiet time before the day begins to really unfold. perfect time for tea drinking :)

Shmiracles

in conclusion of my personal celebration, i purchased a craft beer and drank it while watching Agents of SHIELD. Phil Coulson believes in heroes, so i picked a beer i thought he’d like called Salvation.

Shmiracles

dear Agent Phil, i’ve seen every episode of Supernanny. we should totally hang sometime. call me! xo

had this last night as i watched Breaking Bad.
(the second to final episode ever.)
that show is stressful yo!
this tea was tasty enough, but had little effect on how nervous the show made me ;)
it’s herbal tea bitch.

Haha love how you totally embodied Jesse in your review :D
