1918 Tasting Notes

drank Figgy Pudding by Della Terra Teas
1918 tasting notes

I need a rich cup of tea today. You ever have those mornings?
I was thinking, as this was steeping up, that I’ve never actually had Figgy Pudding, so I have nothing to compare it to. For all I know, this could either be a perfect recreation, or a total deviation. No idea.
What I do know is that the tea has a rich taste of figs, which I quite like. Good!

Afternoon cup. Somehow, for me, oolongs are the right sort of tea to drink in the afternoon.
This one is so nice! Light, and tasting very clean, crisp, and almost juicy. Lovely cup of oolong.
Many thanks to Ost who sent this my way.

So lately, when I can’t decide what to have, I pick up the likely teas and smell them. I was thinking a winter tea, but I picked up this one and the smell hit me, and bingo!
I really, really like this. You can taste the squash, not just the pie spice. This is lovely on a cold day!


Della Terra does “desserts” well.

drank White Christmas by Lupicia
1918 tasting notes

These tiny Lupicia tins are so cute, and so perfect. Its a good amount of tea to try, albeit in sachets instead of loose. Its good to have a bit to play around with, and test the opinion, but I don’t get overwhelmed with it all.
I’m really getting the hazelnut today. Its nutty, dark, and rich. Today I have not managed to coax out the fruitier flavors, but I’ve got a couple more sachets to experiment with, so we shall see.

Feeling a little under the weather tonight. This tea has got lots of healthy bits in it, so maybe it will help starve off any serious illness.

I usually have more time on Wednesdays to drink tea, but not today! In a rush, so a quick cup. This is my go to quick cup. Its impossible to screw up, basic, strong, and the flavors are delightful.

Went to bed with a headache, woke up with a headache. Ugh. No fun at all.
So, I need a good strong tea to get me awake. This is it!
A rich, malty, wintery tea, with a touch of spice and a hint of citrus. I like it immensely.


Aww, not fun. :(

There is a very modern sweetness too this. Not an old fashioned, sugary sweetness, but something crisp and cool, and a little unexpected. It makes it much more than a mint tea, with the flavors running around and making themselves hard to identify.
I have a headache, and ate too much dinner, but this tea has helped take the edge off. Good!

Monday. Urgh. And I think this will be a long and difficult week. Bleh!
Today this has got a little, almost chocolate note in it. I did some chocolate sprinkles, so maybe its that?
I’m almost done with this, and it won’t be a reorder. Its good, there are just better versions!


I’m glad to hear about this one. I was tempted to order it, now glad I snagged others instead. I wonder if they will have a sale at some point again in the near future. I am kinda obsessed with their S’mores atm. :)

drank Carol by Lupicia
1918 tasting notes

Morning yoga completed! Whew, that’s harder than I imagined. That’s good! I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.
Movie with friends this afternoon, but first a cup of tea and a few tea cookies, which is delightful.
Carol is good, sweet and fruity, more a spring or summer flavor than a Christmas one, in my opinion, but whatever!


yay yoga!

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.
