2380 Tasting Notes
I have cracked open a new tin of this!
Every year I buy a bunch of the Lupicia holiday blends (this, Yume, Carol), which never seem like holiday blends to me. They are all light and fruity, and come in adorable tins. This tin has two fox blacksmiths forging a star. Eeek! Too cute.
But despite the holiday tins I save the teas for the warmer weather, when they feel more correct to me.
This is another grape blend from Lupicia, and one I’ve liked enough to buy a couple of times. The grape is a delicate, green grape flavor, light and almost fizzy. Its very nice on a summer morning.
I fudged the morning pot of this. I’d reached that awkward place where I could have one overleafed pot, or two underleafed ones, and I erred on the side of a sipdown.
This is something I’ve enjoyed. Its not an always in my cupboard staple, but I have really enjoyed having it, and will bring it in again someday.
But its spring like flavors are now a sipdown! Inching closer to my goal!
Tea of my morning and a sipdown.
I am so fond of this candyish black tea blend, and not just because it comes in a tin with waving cats on it.
As always its a bit sad when its sipped down, but I have so many other teas to drink, its all for the best to get it down.
A repeater for sure. I can’t wait for the next decorative tin of this comes out!
My sipdown this morning has added new vigor to my sipdown efforts. I am once again motivated to get drinking!
I had thought my goal of reaching only 50 teas in the cupboard was perhaps out of range, but things are seeming a bit more do-able now, so I need to keep on leaning in, especially as the autumn collections are starting to make themselves known.
The good thing is that the first one I’ve seen (Davids tea) does not interest me (except for the cute teaware with sheep on it….) but other collections will be coming, and then where will I be, eh? Not yet at my goal and probably chomping at the bit! Well, that will not do. Let us drink tea.
I have a lot of this left, which I am actually not sad about in the slightest. I am really enjoying this Darjeeling, which is mellow and delightful. Just what an afternoon cup should be.
I had my last little bit of this for my morning cup. Hello Friday, you wonderful creature.
When I first really started drinking teas I was skeptical of grape teas, but it turns out they are fresh and lovely. This was a lovely thing to have in my cupboard for as long as I did, but now it is a sipdown!
Unfortunately my friend, who I seemed to be better yesterday, has had another episode last night, which has left me drawn and upset again.
Reinforcements are coming in, but won’t be here till late Friday and I am just hoping that somehow he will find balance again.
I didn’t know things had gotten this bad.
I had a cup of this last night to try and sooth me. Peppermint seemed good.
Unfortunatly, despite all its beautiful packaging its a disappointing mint tea. Hardly minty at all.
But holding a warm cup in my hand helped a lot.
