2966 Tasting Notes

drank Salted Caramel by Harney & Sons

We’ve hit that weird part of spring where its cold and rainy one day, and warm and sunny the next. This is terribly hard one ones wardrobe, alas.
So it’s an in between season, as far as tea flavors go. But fortunately I like salted caramel year round.
Hmm, not sure what I think of this one. Its smell is stronger than its taste, but I am not tasting that sort of toasted burnt flavor that is what happens in some caramel teas, so that’s a plus.
More cups will be required to finalize my thoughts.

Last week was a week of False Spring- it was warm, perfect weather. I wore linen and a straw hat, and started to turn my mind to warm weather flavors.
But this is the part of the year where we get a brief, teasing burst of spring, and them winter come back. Its cold and rainy today.
Honestly, I don’t mind. I shall sit with my cup of warm tea, in my robe, and enjoy the cold while it lasts.

Last week’s spring sure was nice, wasn’t it? Usually I’m tired of the rain by February but I always welcome the last reaches of the rainy season. The return of cold is not as welcome :P Stay warm and dry, Rosehips.

I feel that every time I update all I say is “life has been crazy and I have been very stressed!” This is currently true, but is also not a fun thing to keep saying. Argh.
This tea has been on heavy rotation in the last few weeks- strong, comforting, elegant and always appropriate. The little black dress of black teas.

Perfect tea for International Women’s Day! Stress is real. I hope the tea helps you breathe a little better!

Its been an odd week- and somewhat upsetting. Work has been crazy, and yesterday someone in my theatre company collapsed. She was alright in a moment, but it was very alarming! I’m glad she was ok.
This means that I’m not quite well rested today, and I’ll take this cup of comfort and hope that it really helps me get through today, which also promises to be long.
This really is such a sophisticated tea. Elegant, yet strong.

Happy Valentines day to one of my true loves- tea!
Thank you, tea, for being there for me, and for always making my day better. A day without you is an impossible thought.

The best laid plans, eh? Saturday I was helping with a theatre company project, and was on my way home when I was involved in an altercation with nature that left my windshield caved in. I am amazingly unharmed, but I am still picking glass off everything I own, and it’s rather going to derail my day, as I need to get it fixed.
I spent yesterday curled up on the couch watching British crime shows and drinking tea, which is a nice way to recover from it all.
This tea is my attempt at a morning energizer. Its not bad, but I do find apple teas sometimes a bit bitter.
Well, thats sort of fitting too.

Glad you are safe!

ashmanra

That sounds scary! I am glad you are okay!

Martin Bednář

Whew, glad you are safe!

Dustin

Oof! I’d spend a day curled up and recharging too! Don’t know if you have this in your area, but it’s been magical for me… mobile auto glass repair. They come to you and replace your car windows at your place! It’s amazing.
Hope you can get everything sorted quickly!

ashmanra

I second what Dustin said! Our truck’s front windshield was replaced right in our driveway years ago. So easy.

drank Boston by Harney & Sons

Sipdown!
I always love my time with Boston, but it is, to me, a mostly Autumnal tea, so it won’t be an immediate restock.
Yum.

I went to NYC to visit my brother, and stayed pretty close to Grand Central Station. They have a fun little food hall there, where I could get some teas!
I do love picking up tea on vacation. It won’t take up too much room in my house, and creates a drinkable memory.
This is pretty nice. A strong ginger flavor, which is what I want, but not so overpowering that it takes all my focus from the tea.
A nice souvenir.

Its my birthday today, and I was looking at my cupboard this morning wondering if I had a favorite tea to celebrate with. And, rather to my delight, the answer is no. I used to think that I was somehow supposed to whittle my teas downs into the very best of the best. Now I know I can have a cupboard full of variety, for my moods, to try new things, to have fun.
Cheers to that! And cheers to this nice cup of Tower of London!

Happy Birthday! The sun is shining here in your honor! Hope a little joy surprises you when you’re not looking today.

ashmanra

Happy Birthday! Yes to variety – sometimes we just have a mood for something different to drink! Enjoy! I am hoping to get down to a master list of fifty teas and types. Some will be must have teas and others will be just “some sort of Earl Grey, some sort of blackcurrant, some sort of floral.”

Martin Bednář

Happy Birthday!

Tiffany :)

Happy belated birthday! I agree – I love having variety so there is always something to sip on. :)

Woke up with a headache, but fortunately I have the day off, and can treat myself delicately all day long.
A good day to stay cuddly and sip on this nice tea.

ashmanra

I hope you get a good night’s rest and feel better in the morning!

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
