1470 Tasting Notes
Mmmmmmm. Returned from our trip at 7:30 this morning, and after two days of travel and three restless nights, I desperately needed a pick me up while we were running errands today. My brother and I were discussing Jungle Ju Ju, and it was exactly what I was craving. Yum! Light and fruity, it gave me just enough energy to get through my day.
In other news, my delightful brother (who I’m sure will show up on here sometime soon) recently got engaged, so for an engagement gift, I took him a bag of 20 or so teas and a DavidsTea logo mug (his name is David). We gave it to them last night. By this morning they had put together a big order online with DavidsTea! XD. I created a monster!
Gah, this morning. So my wife and I couldn’t fall asleep until 2:30 am or so after we were stood up at Waffle House last night. I woke up this morning and glanced at the digital clock, which read 9:49, and leapt out of bed in a panic. I had a phone interview with DavidsTea at 10…yikes! So I raced to my Dad’s office and set up, pulling up my resume, finding a phone, etc. And then I glanced at my computer’s clock. 6:43. groan I tried to stay up, but around 7:30 I tumbled back into bed to get another hour of sleep. When I woke again, I made a cup of this to soothe my nerves and wake me up, and it worked beautifully. I love the flavor of this tea, the chocolate and the almonds make it wonderfully creamy, and while I don’t get raspberry, I do get banana like so many others. Which is just fine by me, seeing as how I love raspberries, but cannot stand chocolate with them.
I don’t want to jinx anything, but I feel like the interview went really, really well. I’ll know by Friday…cross your fingers, toes, and eyes for me, Steepsterites!
Waffle Hooooouse. It’s always freezing in there, so I got a cuppa tea with my delicious, greasy food. It wasn’t horrible, just your standard bagged orange pekoe. Definitely hit the spot last night, even if I did have to use twice the amount of sugar. I will be reaching for my DavidsTea Orange Pekoe this morning, though.
Now I miss my kitty. (A ginger named Pekoe .)
Still love this one. Spent Thursday night erm “hanging out” with a friend from college and did the same thing tonight. Pair that with all of the deliciously terrible for you food we’ve been eating, and my body is about to go on strike. So yesterday I spent rehydrating with vitamin water and powerade, but when the “hanging out” started, I had a cup of detox by my side. It was an experiment to see if it would help…it didn’t. I’m ready to get home and curl up with a big mug of this and sip my hangover away.
Picture it: Tennessee. 2011. (Ah, Golden Girls, I love you)
Anyway, my parents and wife are watching Ghost Hunters, and I’m bored out of my mind, so I update steepster with the teas the wonderful SimplyJenW sent me. I look up the Lady Londonderry and squeak happily during a quiet moment in the show, scaring the crap out of everyone in the room XD. I opened up the package and the scent of Strawberry Lemonade washed over me….oooooh yes. I’m in love. I don’t care that it’s nine pm. I need a cup of this now.
The taste delivers on what the scent promised…it tastes like a strawberry lemonade tea and I love it. It is beautiful. I am very grateful to Jen for sending me so much, and I am very excited to find it is Metropolitan Tea Company. One of their warehouses is literally around the corner from our home, so I can find most of their teas in the area. I can’t wait to get to Kensington and see if they have it, though I’m sure they do.
SimplyJenW, I can’t thank you enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
