1918 Tasting Notes

I’ve run out of tea filters here at work, which must be remedied. But I do have one bagged tea with me, this blend.
Meh. Profoundly. But I can see the bottom of the tin!

drank Earl Grey Cream by Tea Cozy
1918 tasting notes

My newest “haul along to work & drink in the office tea” is this fellow. I thought it would be a good fit, as an Earl is a nice, basic blend that I can work while drinking, without falling into little rapturous sighs. That sort of thing is frowned upon in the workplace.
And I made a good choice! Its got an almost candied bergamot smell in leaf form, but brewes up to a pretty standard Earl, perhaps a touch mellower than the un-cream version. I don’t particularly find this “creamy”, but nor did I find it bitter or unpleasant or tasting like soap. All good things.
So, its gonna be a good work tea! I can tell.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1918 tasting notes

Golly I love this tea. I had a morning with enough time to brew a pot, instead of just a mug, and this is what I chose.
Its just perfect. It speaks to me in every possible flavor way. Its fabulous any time of day. I m, truly happy with this blend.
My pot is getting low. In no time at all I shall be done with it, and I’m resolved not to buy more until I’ve sipped down a lot more teas, and when the air gets cold again. That’s when I like it best.

You really need to be getting a commission from H & S. :)

This one is totally on my list.

drank French Vanilla by Tea Cozy
1918 tasting notes

And that has killed off this blend! Huzzah!
Well, that’s not entirely fair. It was a perfectly decent little blend, but vanilla is my favorite flavor, so I tend to want the very best out of it.
This was only just ok, fading into meh when I ran out of leaf. It was best overleafed.
I shall not be buying more of this, in future, but it was harmless to try.

You know, this blend does exactly what it says on the tin. It is a decent cup of tea!
I really enjoyed with my breakfast this morning, but I imagine it really shining as an afternoon cuppa with a splash of milk and some hearty biscuits. Oooh, yes, that sounds really, really nice, actually. I can feel the drool already beginning.
This is rich without turning heavy, and not at all bitter. Yes, I’d say this fit the bill today.

Don’t know if they’re available in your area, but Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes) has a line of baking mixes out at … Target, Walmart (I think) … and we made his maple cornbread this weekend. Tastes almost like un-spicy gingerbread if that makes sense. I think Malachi would’ve appreciated it.

ooooh! I will have to look and see, because that sounds absolutely spectacular.

It’s probably pristinely clear from my posts I’m not culinarily inclined in the least..the Duff baxing mixes I’ve tried make it look like I fussed when I have to make a “Non-Optional Social Convention” for work or church dinners. Pasting the cornbread link…he also has a blondie mix that’s really good. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Duff-Goldman-Maple-Brown-Sugar-Cornbread-Muffin-Mix-15-oz/54807052

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
1918 tasting notes

I love a Saturday morning where I don’t need to wake up early. I slept in in the most indulgent fashion, and ate a leisurely breakfast with toast and jam and a pot of this.
I am n longer in love, but its a decent enough cinnamon blend. It was a lovely, easy morning pot of tea.

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

A warm, earthy cup was just the thing this morning. With the rain falling outside it was exactly right.

drank Earl of Time by A Quarter to Tea
1918 tasting notes

I felt like Earl Grey today, and this seemed light a bright and cheerful cup.
I got more bergamot than currant than I have in the past, and the whole thing was not as aggressively citrus-y as I recall.
Not a bad thing, just not exactly what I was expecting this morning.

drank French Vanilla by Tea Cozy

Of course, now that I’m ready to be thoroughly cozy as the rain falls down around me, the weather has decided to stop.
Well, that’s just how this week is going, I suppose!
Still, this was pleasant to drink as a lunchtime brew, even if the sun has decded to make an appearance.

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.
