758 Tasting Notes

appropriately drinking this tea as i read this http://archiveofourown.org/works/324584?view_full_work=true
the scent of this tea is very strange to me, sweet but ‘off’. and it intrigues me over and over.
i think i like it?
i’ll have to get back to you on that.


I completely agree with you. The scent is sweet but off.

i’m taking a trip this weekend and i separated the tea samples by type so i can bring a variety with me and my timolino travel mug.
guess where i’m going? … chicago
guess what they have there? … davidstea stores!


My boyfriend’s in Chicago right now for work…you’ll never guess where he was sent, muahahaha. One of them is like a block from an el stop!


i know hahaha i already tried to figure out the best route to get from the airport to where we are staying via a davidstea.

my roommate is having a baby in the next room.
home birth!
her contractions are about 5 min apart.
this isn’t a metaphor or anything.


How exciting!!!


It’s a girl! born at 5:35 this morning.
(Not much sleep is a great excuse for all day tea)


Indeed! Baby fingers and toes are the most beautiful things, aren’t they? Welcome to the little one!

this is my last of the cocomint cream! and it’s no longer being sold by davidstea :(
i don’t see why not cuz i think this is a wonderfully perfect spring and summer tea if you ask me! perfect i say!!!
i will gaze sullenly into my cup, and i will savor every single little sip sip sip!!!
(ouch burned my mouth)

do you read fanfic?!?! come tell me what fanfic you are into now eh? i wanna hear all about it!


this has been the best monday ever.
i’m pretty sure i decided this would be the first tea to try weeks ago.
i imagined it would be bolder than it is, but i do like it! perhaps i’ll brew a double strong cup next time just to see.


Love your photo!! Looks like you’ll be having a lot of fun!


Oh man…that picture looks like a good time!


I think I’m halfway through my tin… #clutchesitclose :/ It really should be year round.

shh don’t tell anyone but i’m at work drinking this tea and listening to the first 9th doctor episode of doctor who.
i’m a 9th doctor girl. and i love the writing so much.
oh Eccleston … my cheeks feel flush … it must be the tea.


“That won’t last. He’s gay and she’s an alien.”


“The Doctor is a legend woven throughout history. When disaster comes he’s there. He brings a storm in his wake and he has only one constant companion. Death.”


Where did you want to start?
Um… The inside’s bigger than the outside?
It’s alien?
Are you alien?
Yes. … Is that all right? (he asks it a little softer)
Yeah. (she answers a little softer and quickly)


OMG I FORGOT WHY I LIKED THIS SO MUCH! I hate to say it but though i love Matt Smith, some of the special chemistry in the writing from 2005 has faded over the years.


With the exception of the mid-season finale, the newest season was very disappointing to me – BUT Matt Smith is definitely “my” doctor. I love Eccleston when I am watching him and love DT all the time, but Matty Smith is my fave : )


i agree! so the recent episodes may not be as snappy and elegant as some from the past, but Matt Smith is definitely still electric. He’s certainly a close second to eccleston for me. both impressive actors.
An 11th episode high point for me MIGHT be the one with Stormageddon? so many memorable moments :)


i think i just need to watch them all again! good thing i have all this new tea to drink through my doctor who marathon!


I need a new show to watch. I think I’ll start on this one. I’ve only seen one scene where he goes into an old western style saloon bar and orders TEA with the TEA BAG in haha


David Tenant was saved by a good cup of tea at one point..that’s something to enjoy. : )

Electric is a great word for the way Matt Smith does the Doctor. He’s so vibrant and compelling, I want nothing more than to adventure with him.

Stormageddon was BRILLIANT. Of course he speaks baby!


“Nice to meet you, Rose…run for your life!!”


CupofTree, you really should start watching. It’s an excellent show. Shmiracles, I love the 9th as well. He’s the one that got me watching. Love him even with his big monkey ears :) I love drinking this tea in my Tardis disappearing and reappearing mug.


i’m having my third cup of this tea today. the scent keeps lingering in my nose and makes me wanna drink more and more.


Oh how I love Dr. Who!!! I just ordered the entire collection boxed set from amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Who-Limited-Gift-Set/dp/B009GYTOZ8/ref=sr_1_6?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1354162348&sr=1-6&keywords=dr+who) I can’t wait to receive it!


My youngest daughter wore her fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) scarf today and carried jelly babies. No one recognized the scarf, so no one got jelly babies! My godson cosplays as ninth Doctor, and you should see the fanboys AND girls go nuts.


Poor Nine. He had some great stories and lines, but also some terrible plots, esp the farting aliens. He was my gateway doctor.

drank Fire Ginseng by Rishi Tea

good morning tea world!
this is one of those teas that smells slightly off putting to me, but when i drink it i’m warmed and happy. it’s not fruity but it’s still wonderfully delicately sweet.
a nice choice for a cold monday morning.
there is a lot of construction in my house. and so we don’t have a kitchen. and so i can’t make my green breakfast smoothies. and so my house is a bit cold. and so ginseng’s got my back.

i drank this yesterday for breakfast. it smells of the most relaxing and loving rose bouquet. it’s currently the only caffinated tea i have in my collection, so i suspect i’ll be drinking a lot more of it until my deliveries arrive.
