1913 Tasting Notes


Backlogged from yesterday-
Of course on the last day of Butiki teas, I had to drink one of their blends. And this seemed like such a soft, dreamlike way to toast that wonderful creator, Stacy, and all her teas.
Cheers, Butiki! You brought us a lot of joy.

I am almost done with this. Eeep! And then I must wait a long time before it returns to me. Ah well.
Perfect start to Friday, rich, pepperminty, with the smooth vanilla taste. So good.

Its fun to revist a tea. I haven’t had this in ages, what is my opinion? Has it changed?
This smells fantastically chocolatish, rich, liqurey. Very good. I enjoy it!
Thanks to Ost who I believe is the one who shipped this out to me.

drank Caribe by Harney & Sons
1913 tasting notes

Today in tea drinking, our friend Rosehips begins to panic slightly about the size of her cupboard, and the fact that more teas will be arriving soon. So lets join her as she works her way through various samples.
Harney & Sons really, really want me to like this, as this is the third sachet I’ve got from them of this. Its not the blend for me. I’m not major on tropical flavors, and this just misses the mark for me.
Oh well. Its gone, and I can breath that much easier. Sheesh, Still so much tea to drink!

In my quest to try all the dessert teas, Ost has been helpful, in sending this along.
I’m glad to have tried it. Its rather chocolaty, which is not my very favorite tea flavor, but its got a nice and creamy mouthfeel.
I wish there was more of a frosting note, though. I’m getting cake, just not quite cupcake.
This is one of those samples that is fab to try, but it illustrates that you’re probably not going to buy it.
Many thanks to Ost for the sample!

drank White Christmas by Lupicia
1913 tasting notes

I really liked the mini tins from Lupicias holiday collection. Just enough tea in them to try the tea, and make up your mind, not enough to get bored with it.
The opinion on this is that its good, but I would not go out of my way for it. I find the blend of flavors to be a little puzzling, but its not undrinkable.
This is a sipdown! All te more nessisary, as I have some teas from Butiki coming in.

I generally like Christmas teas, maybe just because I like Christmas :) But what I really like is the charming packaging a lot of Christmas teas come in!


Agreed! And Lupicia had some lovely holiday teas.

I woke up with a headache, which sucks majorly. Bleh.
But! I had some of this, and feel much better.
I really don’t know how this tea can manage to taste “dusted” but it does. It tastes exactly like a custard with a faint dusting of nutmeg across the top. I always feel like I’m missing a spoon, when I have this, like I should be eating it out of a ramekin, not drinking it out of my largest tea cup.
So creamy! So rich! So, so very impressed.


Glad you’re feeling better!


Thanks! Headaches suck. Tea always helps, though.

Oh woe. This is a sipdown.
I have a lot of really lovely memories bound up in this, some really wonderful things. I’ll look back on this one with fondness.
The squash, the spices, and the crisp sugar, will live on in the cupboard of my mind! Thank you, Stacey, for this lovely tea.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA
1913 tasting notes

Oh Ost you’ve spoiled me with all the lovely samples! I’m rich! My cupboard is huge!
I really, really hate to clean rooibos out of a strainer, but fortunately I have all these little paper pouches, to create my own “tea bags”, so that’s what I used to try this sample.
Its a bit woody, but its got an underlying creaminess that is quite pleasant. I smell the maple more than I taste it, but its still there.
And I have enough for another cup! Hurrah! I love new teas.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

A very long Monday. So long, in fact, that I don’t even mind having a black tea in the evening. And anyway, its not so bad, right after dinner.
I must say that I did something to this tonight, I think understeeped it, which made it came out all watery and uninspired. Bleh.
Better luck next time!

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.
