1914 Tasting Notes

66

This morning it was really hard to turn on my bedroom light. Ouch! Bring back my soft darkness! Alas!
So a strong brew was required to kick me into action this morning. Kandy!
I’m learning this bold brew. I need a lighter steep at the moment to really get along with it, but when I manage to brew it that way its strong, and dances skillfully on the edge of bitterness. Its even got a note of sweet honey in it, which is very tasty.
Onward!

The first official day of fall! I am being stubborn, ignoring the weather, and breaking out the autumnal teas.
I love this one in the colder weather- its so rich and earthy, but the hint of lemon wakes it up and keeps it from being too heavy.
Come on now, cold weather. Make an appearance!

Happy autumn, Rosehips! Autumn is my time of year too! :)

I am so done with summer. Its nearly Autumn, officially, and it was 100 degrees yesterday, and 90 now. Sheesh. I want my fall teas!
I’m bridging the gap with fruity flavors, such as Paris.
I like starting a day with a strong tea- it makes it much easier to face tricky days. (Gotta love coming into the office with a huge and confused pile of paperwork to sort, and a million things to do at this very moment. Sigh)

Me, too! i’m done with summer! Yesterday we got to 92 here in North Dakota. It’s not like I want minus 30, but how about a high in the low 60s and a nice chilly night of 40? Perfect tea drinking weather!

beelicious

here here!! It’d been over a 100 every day since May… where are you fall?!?!?!?

It was a busy weekend.
The post-breakup archery went well! We had fun, and didn’t lose a single arrow, which is great.
We also had lunch, and talked a bunch, and I’m hoping she feels much more centered.
Yesterday was a day with my significant other, and some of his buddies. I like them, and it was a fun hang out, but I wish I’d had more time to run errands!
Oh well.
Now we’re back to the office, and off we go.

Saturday!
My friend, who I was worried about earlier this week, has just gone through a truly awful breakup, and is a wreck.
While I am glad (he was a total ass), I know she is devastated, so we’re planning some fun girl time.
Which, in my world, means archery. My own beloved and myself are taking her out to the local archery range today, and we shall shoot hay bales until she feels better.
She’s never been, and I hope she finds it a lot of fun! And therapudic!

I love it when your friends band around you to carry you through hard times. Have fun with your friend today!

Fjellrev

That is so cool that archery if your thing. I’ve always wanted to try it. Hope you’ll have a good time with your friend!

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

Stumped as to this morning as what I’d like, I just grabbed this.
Its one of the staples of my fall cupboard. Its warm, sweet, and a friendly sort of tea.
A good way to start a Friday.

keychange

Warm, sweet, and friendly are great words for this tea!

Maddy Barone

I agree with keychange. Really nice tea.

This morning seems like a very long time ago now. And the day only just half over, with at least one more challenge ahead. Bleh.
So I needed quick and easy this morning, and grabbed this.
I tried a lighter steep today, and it actually came out nice! Theres a faint honey sweetness to this, when I brew it lightly, which I appreciate. I’m glad I gave it a go.

With a extra couple of hours in the morning, I’ve decided for more tea.
I am getting the hang of this oolong. Its a creamy, vanilla infused brew, but the green/floral note floats by in a very pleasant way.
I woulden’t say its “ice cream” exactly, but it is pleasant and good!

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
1914 tasting notes

Backlog from, er, Monday?
As the days cool off a little, I’m starting to look forward to drinking tea during the evening again, and, as I have several things that need sipping down, I took this off my shelf.
I still am not impressed. Its supposed to taste like a pumpkin cheesecake, a worthy goal. It tastes like Rooibos. Boo.

So today is the one day of my working week that I can sleep in (hip hip hooray!) and it was spoiled by my phone ringing at 6:30 a.m. It was a friend of mine, but she hung up before I could answer, didn’t leave a message, and now I’m a bit anxious about that, as she’s going through some relationship stuff. Perhaps I’ll call her after I finish this cup of tea.
My interview yesterday went well, I must say. I now need to go through a background check, and some other things, so its a waiting game. I’m optimistic. We shall see!

keychange

boo for sleep being interrupted and for worrying about friends, but yay for good tea and successful job interviews!

Rosehips

My feelings exactly!

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.
