2028 Tasting Notes

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons
2028 tasting notes

Its dark when I wake up right now. This is very confusing to me, and my alarm clock and myself continue to have disagreements over the time. The alarm clock wins.
But I can’t drink tea and be asleep at the same time, so I get up.
I needed a gentle tea today, so enter Cranberry Autumn. This tea is a good one for those “between times”, not really hot outside, not really cold. Just a pleasant sort of neutral day, so a pleasant and delicate tea goes very well.
I got a lot of this. I’m glad I like it!

Oh, daylight savings time. I hate you. So, so much.


A. Men.




I go on a grumpy tirade when it changes. People avoid me. Glad to see I have companions here. I’m not a morning person without DST.


Drove to work in the dark. In the rain. Keep your distance. :P


Agreed. DST is some BS.

drank Orange & Ginger by Lupicia

Sigh. I forgot all about daylight savings time, and missed my morning yoga class as a result. Damn.
Did finish off this tea, though!
I like a fruit-and-ginger combination. Its quite tasty, and this was a good version of that flavor profile. Still, not going to be an immediate reentry into the cupboard. And, today its another sipdown!

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas
2028 tasting notes

Eight Candles is a tricky tea. When its good, its very, very good, rich and sweet. But when you don’t get the parameters just right, it falls flat.
I’m afraid to say it fell flat today. Grr.
Next time I get it right, I’ll pay better attention to how long I steeped it.

Ugh. Thursday morning, the time for me to get up extra early and bump into things around the house, trying to get ready.
I can see the bottom of the tin! Wow, am I really moving through this so quickly?

drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea
2028 tasting notes

Ok,despite my lovely boyfriends budding appreciation (and growing collection) of teas, I still think I should probably carry a little bit around with me, of my own teas. Maybe things that need some serious sipping down, or suchlike?
Theres nothing bad or wrong about Mighty Leaf… but they are just not the company for me. They seem to be lacking some pop!

drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia
2028 tasting notes

The sister project to my sipdown mission is to drink the teas that I haven’t yet tried, and are sitting around in my cupboard, looking sad.
Lupicia, in my opinion, are the masters of fruit flavors. They make the crispest, lightest fruit teas of any I’ve tried.
I opened the little mini tin of this, and holy grapes, batman! I can only describe it as Champagne Rose, but with grapes instead of roses. Light, sparkily crisp.
Brewed, I’m getting a touch of bitter, which, to be frank, is probably my fault. I did not watch my steep time too close.
I’ll reserve my ranking for now, and fiddle around with it a bit more.


Lupicia is really good with fruit. Chocolate and nuts have been more iffy…

drank Rose Royal by Lupicia
2028 tasting notes

None shall convince me that this is not Champagne Rose, under a different label.
This should annoy me, but I’m willing to give it a pass, as I quite like Champagne Rose, and so I’m not going to fuss about having in my cupboard again, even under an unexpected name.

My collection of sachets are starting to get disturbingly low. That’s going to be a bit of a problem, as I really like this, and its a seasonal tea!
It would be too simple to say that this is a mint or peppermint tea. Its so much more than that, full of a wonderful layer of lemon, and then a hint of licorice. The most sophisticated mint tea I’ve ever owned.

Sounds marvelous.

This cup of tea can be securely filed under “pleasant”. Nothing too flashy, just a gentle, almost floral vanilla, and a somewhat delicate base. Really nice afternoon cuppa.
Thanks to Ost for letting me try this. I’m enjoying all the samples!

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.
