1869 Tasting Notes

74

I am nearing the end of my little tin of this chai. Its been a pleasant drinking experience, but its not something I’m going to seek out to bring back into the cupboard.
It was a good choice for this morning, a soft and gentle way to wake up on this Monday morning, which has been nuts (I was nearly rear-ended, and the social media I checked this morning all seemed to be grumpy.)
But the tea has put me in a good mood, and I’m feeling generally positive about this Monday.

Glad you escaped that car accident! Social media gets all nitpicky about awards ceremonies, and last night was quite the blunder. I guess the mood spread :/

I am clearly in a Mood. Because I could brew anything this morning- my whole cupboard awaits. But what I want is more of this. So I’m drinking it.

So excellent to have a day of tea drinking in front of you and making the right choice for you at this particular moment.

Indigobloom

Yes. Do YOU :)

A sleepy Saturday morning, where I have lounged around in my robe and ate an english muffin with homemade blood-orange curd, and brewed a pot of this.
This makes any room its in smell amazing! Thats a great thing, in my book.
I payed attention to the brew time of this, and its more as I remember it, which delights me.
Nom. This is a delicious morning.

I’m getting soft in my old age. I usually like me tea as black as a Goth’s wardrobe, with no sweetener or additives. But I found myself sipping this today and thinking that a splash of milk might not go amiss.
I mean, I still like it, even without the milk, but it might be nice, even with a little sugar.
I’m going soft, obviously.

Indigobloom

tea with milk is so good! nutin wrong with that :D

gmathis

Nah, sometimes you just need a little softness around the edges.

drank Earl Grey Lavender by Tea Cozy

This is a very aromatic tea. So much so, that when I left my office to grab the mail, and came back, I had a deep and satisfying breath of lavender, even though the cup was already drunk.
Not a bad way to make a Thursday a little easier.

Ooof, its cold this morning. I mean, I generally like it cold, but still.
It does make brewing and drinking tea so much easier, though. (I hate the summers, which are boiling hot, and make it so hard to drink tea!).
This is turning into a memory tea, rather than a proper love. I remember loving it, but I don’t find it quite so impressive now.
Still, it was very warming and nice today, and I’ll take it on a morning where my windows were covered in frost crystals.

I am really now of the opinion that this is just not my tea. If I don’t watch it like a hawk it gets bitter on me and bitter tea makes me sad.
Still! I am determined to use what I have. I will simply have to watch like a hawk when I brew this, and when I sip it down I will be very pleased with myself.

I could be serious, and have a more serious tea this morning. Or, I could embrace the fact that I had a dream about a vampire knitting club last night, and go for a silly tea. (They hand dyed all their own yarn, and most of it was named after blood types. And they knit bat-wing style shawls!)
This was very pleasant today, warm and almost a little creamy. I do love cardamom.

gmathis

OK, that’s a story just waiting to be written!

Ah, and just like that this tea is all gone.
I’m not sad, though I love this blend. It will be back, or I will find new things to try.
I’m not hording tea this year (or, at least, that’s the goal), so it was nice to have my last sachet of this on this blustery, stormy day.
Sipdown!

I’m in a lavender mood, today. I’m wearing a lavender based perfume (again), and very happily drinking this as a work cup of tea.
What is it with weeks when you’ve got Monday off? Tuesdays are always bonkers.
This is just the right amount of soothing and peppy to help me through a very busy morning.

Fjellrev

Ooh, which lavender perfume are you wearing?

Rosehips

Its from a tiny perfume company called Possets. Its called Indigo, and it smells very rich and lovely.

Fjellrev

OH yeah, I’ve heard of Possets but never got around to ordering from them, mostly because I have so much freaking BPAL already haha.

gmathis

Agreed. Four day weeks are (shh, I can’t believe I’m saying this!) often not worth the Monday off.

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.
