drank Christmas Tea by Twinings
2068 tasting notes

As this was a gift from my new boss for Christmas, and it bagged, it was an easy choice for a work tea, and I drank the first of it this morning.
I thought this would be darker, somehow. More intense spices. As it is, it was light, and surprisingly sweet to me.
Enjoyable, but a perfect work tea. I could enjoy the sips I could pay attention to, but didn’t mind igoring it when I had work to do.

Goodness, but this is intense. Its so smokey. I would hardly think it was an Earl Grey at all, except that it says so on the tin. I’m getting no bergamot at all.
Instead, I’d think this was a Lapsang, smokey and strong, with the lavender making a strong second note.
But my tastebuds are wrong, as its Earl Grey!
Huh. This was interesting, and will need more testing. Fortunatly my sweet sister gave me a lot.

This sounds wacky. Is it good?

drank Vanilla Rooibos Parfait by Tazo

I am quickly learning what it takes to be a good “at-work” tea.
1. Bagged.
2. Easy (no complicated water temps or steep times)
3. A little boring, but enjoyable.

This last one will not always hold true, but I’m quickly seeing that I can’t focus 100% on the cup if I am working. People call, come in, and generally need things done. I work on trainings and my tasks, and while I like the flavors and sensations of drinking tea, I can’t focus too much on them.
This is all really good info.
So I’ve brought some of my bagged teas, and this one lept out as a good choice. I want to be drinking less caffine in the afternoon, so a rooibos is the way to go, and this one is pleasant, but not exciting or interesting. So I won’t care too much if it gets cold while I work!

It’s definitely hard to sometimes enjoy a good tea in a work setting.

Elderflower is the dominant note, and its very pleasant indeed. Light, sweet without being cloying, and fresh.
This turned out to be a very refreshing tea!
Sipdown!

A sample I got a while ago, and was not sure what I was going to do with. I don’t drink greens very often, but when I do, I like brewing them up the old fashioned way. What was I going to do with this?
Boom! Work tea!
I’m afraid this did not leave a huge impression. Its light, with a clean citrus flavor. Pleasant, but not much more than that.

drank English Teatime by Bigelow

Work tea is brilliant! I am finally getting to try/sip down the bagged teas that I have. When I’m at home, I’d really rather have the loose leaf, but at work the tidiness of the bagged or sacheted teas is perfect. And I’m drinking down teas I’m not super impressed/in love with, which is fabulous.
I finished this one this morning, while working on all the things that accumulate over the weekend. Its decent enough, but not a particularly exciting black tea. This is excellent for mornings when you have a lot to do!
But I won’t be getting any more back in, and it is a sipdown!

I’ve had this twice now, and still can’t quite make up my mind as to what I think about it.
Its certainly a very nice black tea, and there is a nice pumpkin spice flavor to it. But I don’t know that I’m getting the “syrupy” or even the “pancake” out of it.
As I say, enjoyable, but I feel like I’m missing something. I’ll keep trying!

I felt like I was missing something too haha.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

I had a long night, and I’ve got a long day ahead of me. But I have a little time to sit and savor a pot.
This is just so warm and lovely.

I recently tried this one and loved it too. There’s something so comforting about it.

I sipped this down at work yesterday. Still not very impressed by it, but the pomegranate was more distinct in the second cup.
Ah well.

This is one of the bagged teas my beloved sister gave me in the gigantic tea grab bag she gave me for Christmas, and that I’ve brought for my work teas.
This is a very rich black tea, but not an especially complex one. I could drink it without paying a whole lot of attention to it, which is a good thing at the office.

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.
