308 Tasting Notes
A friend from work gave me some of this in exchange for some of my Kava Stress Relief tea.
Oh my gosh, is it delicious! It has pieces of real cinnamon stick in it. I taste coconut, apples, lots of warm cinnamon, and a sweet rooibos base. It’s warm and smooth and perfectly blended. Like liquid apple pie.
This tea is a game-changer for me. I was ready to write Teavana off as a bunch of overpriced hibiscus-lovers, but this made me reconsider them.
Hello, Steepster! My gosh, it’s been a while! I just moved into my new apartment and got the WiFi set up today. I also haven’t had much time for tea-drinking because I’ve been adjusting to my new job (tech support… strange career move for an English major, but whatever) and have been insanely busy.
I drank this tea today. I forgot how much I love it. Burnt chocolate, bread, earth, and smoky yerba mate. Delicious! I also love that it makes me feel energized without being jittery. And the black tea knocks down some of the intensity of the mate.
I just updated and fixed my computer, and it’s running so much faster now. Now that I know more about computers and what they need to run properly, I can take better care of my own! Hooray!
I know this is random and not timely, but for some reason, there are these teabags in the break room where I work now. So I tried it. In August.
It’s actually really delicious. It’s smooth and creamy, like eggnog. But it doesn’t really taste like eggnog at all. I taste warm cinnamon, vanilla, and honey.
I’d drink this year round. I mean it. What a nice surprise!
The earthiness of the mint counterbalanced the edginess of the mint actually quite nicely. This blend was better than I expected, but still not fabulous. It was… Surprisingly tolerable, I guess.
I’m still adjusting to my new workplace. I found a box of this in the breakroom and reached for it because I was needing something soothing. It certainly fulfilled that need, if nothing else.
Mourning the death of Robin Williams, big time. The man had so many demons. I hope he’s with the angels now.
I missed my Vanilla Caramel Lipton tea when I finished it. It’s a comforting, sweet flavor. I figured I’d give this one a try too. And hope that it makes me a little less sad.
I taste burnt cocoa, popcorn, sweet vanilla, and a hint of caramel. This brand’s Vanilla Caramel is much more dynamic and less dessert-y than Lipton’s. I like it!
I got a travel mug with a built-in infuser. Because screw not being able to enjoy my teas because of my busy schedule and harrowing commute (a problem that will soon be remedied once I move into my first apartment! Ahhhh so excited!!!!)
I’d forgotten how good loose black tea tastes. This one has strong raspberry and pomegranate notes, and the base is earthy and burnt tasting. It’s very nice, and it kept my eyes open while I was hanging out with my man tonight at his house. (Raiding of his tea stash was deemed totally necessary.)
Gotta get me some of this for my own collection! Or maybe I’ll just keep stealing his…
