2374 Tasting Notes

I love the weekend. When I want a pot of tea and a few little tea biscuits in the afternoon, why then I can brew a pot and bring out the cookies!
So I decided to brew this up, as its been in my cupboard for a while, but untasted. And now I’m kicking myself for waiting so long, as its lovely. Its rich, but with a honeyed smoothness at the bottom, which makes it go down an absolute treat.
Highly recommended.

Darjeeling perfection! Bungalow is one of my all time favorite, must have, can’t imagine life without teas! It’s become my usual Sunday afternoon pot of tea. I can’t wait! :)

Ah, this is one of the first truly warm days, but not yet the suffocating heat of the full summer. A lovely weather.
So its time to break out the lighter teas. This just sang to me today, the blend of rose with the sweet sugar. Its just so light, so bubbly, so refreshing.

Friday. Thank goodness, its Friday.
I am quite stressed at work, and today is going to be massively busy. I’m worried that I won’t be done with the larger projects I’ve been given. Argh.
I wish I was feeling more confident in this new job! I’m dying to feel calm and detached when I come into the office, but right now I’m tense and stressed beyond belief.
Which means I’m not sleeping well. Which means that I’m not sleeping well. Which means tea.
This is my last bit of this, so its a sipdown.
I really like this blend. Its gorgeous in the cooler weather. Now that we’re pushing against spring, its time to drink it down.

drank Red Rocks by The Tea Spot

This was a Christmas gift from my sister, and as it is now, er, March, I thought I should get down to it!
And…. hmm. Er, its rooibos. Its somewhat woody, and a touch creamy and, er, that’s it?
Sigh, oh rooibos. Will I ever get the hang of you?

Bring out this creamy, dreamy pool of vanilla loveliness for tonight.
There are days you just need a steady cup of something delicious, so I’ve grabbed this.
Ahh, simple, and tasty.

drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea
2374 tasting notes

I had a cup of this after work, to help ease me out of this day. I really like this! Its got a really nice balance of flavors, and I suspect would take good with milk (which is odd for me to say, as I almost never add milk to tea).
Ahh, sometimes a nice Darjeeling is just what you need.

Do you have a local retailer that carries Ahmad? The only times I’ve seen it locally were just potluck at TJ Maxx.

Drank my final pot of this with my breakfast today.
Pumpkin? Yes, most certainly. I get a good pumpkin flavor, and a dash of pumpkin spices.
Syrupy? Pancakes? Nope. I missed those notes entirely, not getting anything that tasted of maple, or of pancakes, for that matter. A little disappointing, that it didn’t live up to its name, but a decent enough tea.
Sipdown!
I was feeling so pleased with my sipdowns that I bought more teas. Whoops.

Fjellrev

Yeah, I didn’t get the maple or pancake flavours either.

And this is a sipdown, folks!
I could never find the perfect point of bliss with this blend. It served its time well, if not particularly memorably, in my cupboard, but I shall move along to bolder and more distinct mint blends.

Ugh, daylight savings time.
Anyone expecting elegant prose, or poetic desciptions, well, be gone, my friends. This day has been one long session of uggggggh, as I dragged my sorry carcass around, mewing slightly and bumping into objects.
I do not like waking up early, that’s for sure.
So! Bold! Rich! Strong! That’s what I grabbed this morning. Thank you for all your help, Winter Solstice.

This morning was cold and rainy, and a warm and beautiful cup of tea was just the right thing.
It was also my last of this, and this is a winter tea to me. Its pushing up against springtime, so I don’t think I’ll get another bag of this until the autumn, but I will get a bag then, for sure.
Sipdown!

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.
