2605 Tasting Notes

drank Diamond Jubilee by Harney & Sons

So my tin of this has moved to the work desk, which is going to help my consumption of it.
I don’t like this as well as I like the similar Royal Palace. The grapefruit is stronger in this, and I find it less well balanced.
But the flavors are right for a 97 degree day, let me tell you.

And a summer sipdown!
I know Lupicia thinks this is a holiday blend, but I must respectfully disagree. I think its best as a spring and summer tea. The flavors make the most sense that way.
The good/bad thing about Lupicia is that their tins, while beautiful, are not particularly big. But that allows the tea to be enjoyed and not outstay its welcome.
I feel good about this sipdown, as one of my goals this year was to drink my warm weather teas in the warm weather, so I can focus on the fall flavors without guilt. You know, in a million years when fall arrives.

This is rapidly turning into my “I need a second cup of tea” cup. It does a good job in that criteria!

I’m more interested in drinking this down now than the tea itself. Its not a bad blend, but I’ve had better rose teas, and when this is sipped down I won’t bring it back.
Of course, I said that after the last tin I had, and look where we are now, so I obviously cannot be trusted.

And, somehow, this is my last tea bag of this. Eeek!
Well, the no tea till autumn ban continues in full force. No more of this for a good long while, I’m afraid.
So long for now, Cormoro!

drank Queen's Muscat Oolong by Lupicia

And, now that I’m back from class (one sock done! Second sock started!) the tiredness has hit.
I’ve opted for oolong, instead of black tea, mainly cuz its what sounded good. And this is really nice! Its a refreshing cup, just the right speed for an afternoon in summer.

Before I went to my class I had a cup of this, as I could feel the tiredness start to build, and it helped. (I am learning to knit socks!) and it was pretty darn good.
My initial impression on this one hold true- very nice but not exceptional. Very pretty tin. I am a sucker for a very pretty tin (what do I do with the empty tins? I have a small scrap yard of very pretty tins without purposes and I either need to give them function or get rid of them, and lets be honest, I’m not getting rid of them….)

I’m impressed! I distract too easily to knit.

My best friend taught me a couple of years ago. I was skeptical, but now my house is about 75% yarn, so she was right that it would take over my entire life.

I am a very rudimentary crocheter…nothing elegant, but scarves and hats for our church mission center; however, when it gets hot, the Bag O’Projects just gapes at me from my chair. Oh, well, October’s coming. (Two balls of yarn left unattended will mate and multiply. As will two sheets of scrapbook paper, or two thrift store books. Tribbles, all of them!)

So I live in a small town. I work in an even smaller town, and sometimes (like last night) I go into the neighboring city, which is not a particularly large city, though it has theatres and stuff. So I went and saw a play last night, and somehow the entire population of everywhere I’ve ever been, looked at, or heard about was in the parking garage I was in, and it took me a good half hour to get out of the parking garage.
So I did not get home till rather late. No problem! Today is a Saturday where I do not need to work, and the class I’m taking isn’t until eleven! I can sleep in.
No. Apparently I have dishonored Morpheus, and I woke up, sans alarm, at my weekday time. All attempts to rejoin the land of the sleeping were met with abject failure, so I got up, made a pot of this, and set about readying myself for the inevitable energy crash.
This helped sooth my grumpiness, in any case.

This is doing pretty well as an at work tea, as its not a favorite, and this way its actually getting drunk down.
I usually love black tea/fruit blends, but this one doesn’t quite blend. The blueberry turns tart easily, and sits awkwardly over the top of the tea, never really melding into deliciousness.
Ah well.

I continue my high pitched whining about the heat. Ugh. That is just unpleasant.
And, due to said heat I did not sleep well last night, so waking up was not fun.
Fruity tea is our only solution.
This is a blend that I’m enjoying, but don’t think I’ll be getting more of when my tin is done. Its fruity and pleasant, reminiscent of Tower of London, but a bit less sophisticated than Tower.
But its a good thing at the moment. Noms.

Bio

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.
