744 Tasting Notes
okay warning, i’m not really a flower tea kinda gal. i like chocolate and vanilla and cremes and mints and tend to stay away from lavender and rose petals. and his tea is chocolate and rose petals. so i rolled the dice.
and i really wish i liked this one more. it’s good. it’s fine. it’s totally a nice mellow chocolate. and i will definitely drink the whole tin. it’s just that it has a slight alcohol smell to me that i can’t entirely get past it. and i suspect it’s the rose petals.
but i’ll probably come around!
give me a couple weeks drinking this and i’ll be singing it’s glory.
but i still totally LOVE Mistie’s Blend and will buy it always and forever.
umm is this even tea? it tastes like just lemon in water. that is colored very dark. whew. i might lose this tea on the way home. like into the river or something. i’m not a snob really but i don’t like hibiscus much at all and this tea isn’t even trying.
i have had an intensely pms shite day. like don’t ask me what i think about anything and don’t believe anything i say today. and also every song, even bad ones, sound so beautiful and also everybody should just stop moving and look out the window. just sayin.
screw dance class. i’m gonna go watch phil coulson instead.
small tea story
i ran really far on saturday and then went to lunch with my boyfriend and ate everything in sight.
then he had to work for an hr so he dropped me off at the tea shop so i could get a cup! but when i got there they sadly told me they didn’t have any cups!
so then i went to panera to get a cup of tea there instead, but when i got there i was like ‘i don’t want this tea’ and i just asked for a cup and lid instead. the teenage panera-worker said i could just have a cup! hah i took it and ran.
i took the cup back to carytown teas and ordered this Pu-erh. they thought it was funny that i was determined enough to supply my own cup.
this pu-erh is not a super favorite. i kept the tea bag and had a second steep the next day. it’s true that pu-erh can be amazing. when it’s really good it will easily skyrocket to the top of my list! but when it’s mediocre it can tend towards bummer-city. this one is not memorable. and kinda lame.
omg i have a new office! it’s a private office all to my very self!
it’s very adult. i’ve been sharing an office with another gal for the past 3 years. and i’ve never had my very own office in all of my career.
i also have a spiffy new title to go with it.
and a shelf just for my tea!
i’m gonna make so much tea in my new office. i even bought some tins from home. so much tea. look out!
this is a cute little tea! very romantical.
thank you very much KallieBoo!
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!
