1915 Tasting Notes

I meant to save my last pot of this to compare it to the new tea by the same name, now by Mighty Leaf. But did I do this? No, no I did not. Bleh.
But I really appreciated it this morning, as I raced around getting ready, so that’s all I can say for that.

This is, simply, the most sophisticated mint tea blend I have. If this tea was a person, it would be a really cool architect sort of person, with bold geometric glasses and a taste for spare monochrome. Its just so modern, so elevated. Not at all a sweet or cuddly mint (not that there is anything wrong with a sweeter mint. In fact, I love them dearly). This makes a fascinating blend on a winter’s evening.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Monday! First Monday of the new job. Cue the high pitched worrying noises.
It actually went ok, but I’m going to have the creeping feeling that I’m missing something for a while.
This tea is such a solidly good one that I hardly have to pay any attention to it while I bump around in the morning getting ready.
A good day for the first Monday, and a bright spark in a cold morning.

drank Mulled Wine by DAVIDsTEA

Post-yoga tea.
It really does smell and taste mulled, which is very pleasant. However I’ll say it didn’t have the rich mouthfeel that I was looking for.
Still, a pleasant, warm, and slightly spicy cup for the afternoon!

Its raining! Its a Sunday and its raining, and I don’t need to go anywhere except to yoga, and that’s my favorite sort of day.
So I’ve got a stew in the crock pot, so the house will smell lovely the whole day, and its going to be a tea drinking festival, while I get all cozy!
Yeaahh!
Maybe I’ll bake a cake as well! Ooooh!
Anyway, the first tea was this creamy, buttery cup of warmth. I surprised myself with how much I liked it. Its really good! I might even get more, if I can.

Shae

This sounds like the best day!

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA

In the pouch, and in my cup, this smells like the most peanut-buttery fudge in the whole world. I was excited!
But in my mouth, this is a pale shadow of its smile. Its more like water than the rich and decadent treat I was hoping for. Sigh.

I found you really have to add a lot of “leaf” to get more flavour. But yeah, it’s definitely on the thin side!

drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia
1915 tasting notes

I was filling for someone in my little side job, which meant I needed to be out the door by 6:30 a.m. this morning. Ugh. So I needed a bagged tea, as I didn’t have time for a proper pot. The trouble is that I’ve been really working through the bagged black teas! But I remembered I had a sample sachet of this, and all was well.
Its really fresh and fruity.Not exactly what I think of when I think winter blend, but it was very refreshing.

drank Mint To Be (Organic) by DAVIDsTEA

First Friday of the new job. I’m so glad its done.
Its been good, but confusing and stressful. I’m really, really ready for the weekend, let me tell you. I can recharge my brain meats and hopefully face the upcoming week refreshed and ready for challenges!

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

I specifically saved this tea for today. I really like this tea, and decided I could have it today, which was the first day of my new job.
Its new! And overwhelming! And I felt wrung out and tired at the end of the day. Its so much, and this is a complete industry change for me, and so the lingo is unfamiliar to me.
Though it wasn’t unhappiness, I did have a good solid cry this evening, while my lovely boyfriend poured tea down my throat. Its stressful right now. I’ll be arming myself with extra tea!

Fjellrev

Awww, you’ll get the hang of it really quickly.

Change is tough—even good change! Will be thinking of you today.

Today has been brought to you by mint!
This cup was extra creamy tonight. Just lovely, as I work on cleaning up a bit, and just hanging out.
Lovely.

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.
