1911 Tasting Notes

drank Berry Trifle by Tazo Tea
1911 tasting notes

So, the Tea Novices (boyfriend and roommate), have done what a lot of us did in our early tea days- that is, buying everything they could get their hands on. Ha! I remember those days. I still even have some of those teas! They are learning, however, what they like and don’t like, and a refining the collection.
This is one of those million things they picked up, and I am not a fan. Nope. This smells nice enough in the sachet, and I love a black tea/fruit blend. But this is bitter, watery, and just generally unpleasant.
However, the Novices seem to love it, so its good that it belongs to them, and not to me. I just will not accept a cup next time I’m here.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea

So my newly converted tea friends (my boyfriend and his roommate, proud owners of their own tea station), really like this tea, so offered some to me.
I like citrus teas, and I was hoping that I’d like this more, but I think that Mighty Leaf may not be quite the company for me. The flavors seem a little…. light. Ah well.
I’ve got a bunch of backlogs from this weekend, so be prepared for some of that.

drank White Christmas by Lupicia

First cup of my morning was this. I can never quite decide what all the flavors are. Fruit? Baked goods? Some sort of apricot tart business? White chocolate? Not sure.
Still, enjoyed!

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas

This was supposed to be an easier day than yesterday, but not so! Its been frantic, running about, trying to align repair men and sleeping companions, coordinating shipments, checking in on the houses of friends who are out of town, and so on.
Argh. Plus an emergency trip to the bus, to drop off by significant other, who did not wake up in time to go there.
And he interrupted this pot of tea! Well, that’s alright. I enjoy this, but its not my very favorite, so I’m ok if it cools a little as I run about like a decapitated chicken.
Whew. And that’s just the morning!

I would write an ode to this squash tea with its gorgeous sugar note and its warm spices, but its too early in the morning to write an ode. You’ll all just have to imagine it.


Argh, why is there “DISC” tacked on to all the Butiki teas? That’s not part of the name of the tea, and I find it irritating. That info can go in the description. One should assume not all teas listed on Steepster are available. (Sorry for ranting on your post.)

Sipdown time!
You ever have one of those days that, for no real reason, you are dreading going into work? That’s my day today. Weee.
Well, I’ll fortify myself with a mint black.
Farewell, Peppermint Bark. I’ve liked you, but not loved you, and its time to move along.

Goodbye, Carol! Until we meet again. I will think fondly of your sweet, candy-bright flavors.

Oh, I’m so glad its a three day weekend. Its gonna be fantastic to not have to go into the office tomorrow morning.
I’m not above drinking a black tea in the evening, especially when it can be a lazy morning the next day.
I love Lupicia, and I love this tea, but its a bit of a mystery why its a Christmas tea. I mean, strawberry? Rose? Wha?
Its still lovely, don’t get me wrong, it just does not seem to be a winter flavor.

When looking at the flavor notes for this tea, I was rather confused. All those notes in one tea?
Turns out, yes, yes there are.
This is a lovely oolong, rich, layered, complex flavors that boil down to simple goodness. I may need some more than the little sample Ost was good enough to send to me. Oh yes, I see some tea shopping in my future. Ooooh yes.
Many, many, many thanks to Ost for letting me try this!


I knew I would not let this one run out, so I wrote the name on the tin in gold ink. That means it is a permanent tea in my collection!


What a fab idea! I should do that as well.

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.
