drank Tower of London by Harney & Sons
2721 tasting notes

Its Tech Week, and if you’ve ever been in a play before you know that means that this is the point where you rethink all your life decisions and get to bed veeery late.
So I am going to need all the tea this week, and the good stuff too.
Uuuugh.
But Tower is proving a sweet and nurturing friend this week, and I am very glad to be drinking it.

I keep finding the same thing over and over with the Bird and Blend teas- namely that the taste never lives up to the smell.
I wish this tea was just… more. Its in no way unpleasant, but it is not special.
Its the current work desk tea, which is sometimes what I do when it is time to sip a tea all the way down.
There is nothing unpleasant about this tea, it’s just a big forgettable…..

drank Boston by Harney & Sons
2721 tasting notes

I do this every year, I somehow kill off my tin of Boston faster than I drink anything else.
Alas! A sipdown!
And this blend belongs to the autumn time, so I don’t think I’ll get more of it before the year is out, as much as it breaks my heart to say it.
Farewell, beloved autumn in a cup!

I am a big Wizarding World fan, so when this tea was available earlier this year I pounced.
It smells amazing, but it never quite brewed up as luscious as it smelled.
Well, a sipdown none the less!

That’s how I’m feeling about most of their blends… if the flavor was just a little more present, it would be a great cup of tea!

I do this every autumn. I wake up the morning, look at the beauty of my cupboard, with all the lovely options, and then reach for Boston again.
I just find it the perfect autumnal blend. It makes me feel a certain rightness in the world.

So far this has been a nice blend. The one detraction is that the mouthfeel is a bit dry.
I feel that this was a tea designed to take milk, so I may try it that way in future.

I’ve brought this with me to the office, to drink it at my desk.
Poor tea has been sadly neglected, which it doesn’t really deserve. Its an ordinary, but generally nice rose black tea.
I really like rose teas, but it is a delicate thing to keep them from being soapy. This one manages to walk that line, and its going to work well on my work desk.

So, in addition to being a tea drinker, I am also a knitter. I am a total cliche, but I adore the times where I can be curled up in my cozy chair, with a big mug of tea and my knitting, and just feel like Miss Marple. So, when I saw that this yarn company (Churchmouse) I snapped it up.
So Churchmouse has a collaboration with Smith Tea Maker, and there are four blends, one for each season. I am predictable, so I grabbed up the one for autumn.
Its a really nice breakfast blend. Sturdy, just the tiniest bit astringent, and well balanced. I think it would take milk and sugar very, very well.
It would also be a great cup of tea to drink while sitting in a big cozy chair and work on a knitting project!

I’m a knitter, too! ❤

Crocheting here. I’m too inattentive to knit properly :)

Love this! Does cross stitching count? ;) I just picked it up again after several years away and spent the weekend just as you described, sitting cozy under a blanket with a big mug beside me.

I miss counted cross-stitch…confounded bifocals!

Yes, I’m learning my eyes aren’t as good as they used to be!

drank Touch of Grey by Dem Bones

And a sipdown for this!
Like Wake the Dead, this tea is a gentle sort of blend, mild but also nice. Mild is sometimes a perfectly soothing cup, and thats where we have ended up with this blend.
I’ve enjoyed these teas. They’ve been fun!

Sipdown!
I finished this yesterday, which seemed appropriate.
All in all a delicate, mild breakfast blend, which actually made for a refreshing change. I enjoyed it very much.

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.
