drank Carol by Lupicia

I am well ready for summer to be over with. Well and truly ready! Soooo ready. I caught myself googling slow cooker stew recipes, and pumpkin recipes, so I’m well and truly done with this summer nonsense.
I am eager for fall flavors, and to order some of my favorite fall classics, but I feel like I need to make some headway with the summer teas first and foremost.
I do love this. Its a splendid rose tea, with a pretty fruitiness to it. Its easily one of my hot weather staples, as it goes down a perfect treat on a hundred degree day. If I drank cold brew, or iced tea, I’m sure this one would do very well.
I’m a fan, but it will be time to put away these hot weather teas soon! (I hope, anyway. Stupid California.)

Tea of the morning. I was not feeling energetic, so I grabbed one of the remaining bagged teas in the cupboard, and it yielded this.
I like this, but that liking is nowhere near love, and it doesn’t leave much of an impression as I drink it down. Alas, as I love a well done floral blend.
Ah well. Monday is off and running!

drank Earl Grey K-cup by Bigelow
2068 tasting notes

Ack! Why did I even bother to try this? Ack, ack, ack.
Not good. The kind of Earl that makes your teeth squeak with how lousy it is.
I mean, I’ve tasted worse, but this is just so uninspired, so depressing. Not again!

Somewhere out there are people who like K-cup teas and it’s strange.

Why have I not had any bungalow in so long? Its just gorgeous!
My cup this morning went down smoothly, with a lovely mouthfeel and a lovely flavor.
This has got to be in more constant rotation for me.

I drank a cup of this yesterday, and continue to be unimpressed. I was once hopeful that I could eek out something lovely from this oolong, but now I’m just drinking it until it is gone.
What a disappointment! Something called Oolong Ice Cream should be an utter, utter joy to drink, especially created by Smith Teamaker, but no, its just a faintly green tasting cup of hot water. Drat it all!

This was one of those mornings where I stared stupidly at my collection of teas, unsure of what to drink. Its going to be a long tea, and so I wanted something black, strong, and hearty. But I didn’t want anything too earthy or bitter this morning. Something kissed by fruit, perhaps.
Aha! Tower of London. Come here, you perfect, gorgeous, wonderful tea. How I have missed you! Why have I not sipped your honey’d waters more recently?
Well, it is all better now, for I have had the goodly cup, and am sitting in bliss, prepared for the day.

“a long tea”? :]

Rosehips

Oh good grief. I meant to write a long day! Ah well, shows where my mind was, eh?

KiwiDelight

It can be a pun xD

drank The Earl's Garden by DAVIDsTEA

I keep trying with this one. Every time I brew it, I find myself hoping that this will be the lushly fruity blend I’ve been hoping for. Alas, it is not to be.
I find that this is distinctly soapy, which is too bad. I want it to be a lovely dream, as it is, its a disappointing cup.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
2068 tasting notes

I am sipping this down too fast, which is a problem, as I am on a strict-ish “no buying of teas” at the moment.
Well, good?
It remains a creamy, dreamy cup. Good for what ails ye.

I love this tea so much

I will have to pull what’s left of my tin from the back of the cupboard!

drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia
2068 tasting notes

Why does Monday always do this? I somehow never seem to have sufficient sleep on the night before, and I am then feeling paralyzed by my tea decision.
I settled on this. Its hardly the strongest blend in my cupboard, but I do like it on a summer morning.
I can’t believe we’re so far through August already!

drank Cashew Turtle by 52teas
2068 tasting notes

Cashews!
I’m excited, because here is a tea where the cashews are a prominent note. Finally!
I get a lot of cashew creaminess, but can’t say I get a lot of the “turtle” aspect. This isn’t dreadful to me, as chocolate teas and I have an agreement not to bother one another too much.
I have enough for another cup later, and I’m looking forward to giving it another spin.

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.
