767 Tasting Notes
my label says Toffee Chocolate Hazelnut" but i think it’s the same as Crunch.
i ordered it as part of the cookie sampler, and that’s the name of the tea included in the cookie sampler online.
my first sample from this company.
i’m not sure i steeped it long enough but it’s probably not very strong either way.
a good tea for 11:30 at night i suppose! i guess that’s all i have to say about this tea at the moment. not bad, but not a ton of personality yet. a tea can change after you drink it a few times though, so don’t commit this to memory.
today oddree and I went to see the opera Lâ Amour de Loin at the fancy movie theater. they broadcast it live from NYC. it was sublime. full of themes of aloneness (not to be mistaken for only lonely) and independence and conflict that is an innate part of the human experience.
then we walked through the outdoor mall, the brass trio played Carol of the Bells, and oddee bought me a gift of fancy soap and fancy make-up.
it was a good day.
the box i got from Angry Tea Room was missing a sample i ordered, but that’s okay. it was just a sample. and i still have 9 to try which is plenty. so it’s all good.
Advent Calendar day 1 ! (3 days late)
so, i’m watching Fantastic Four. yes! the most hated movie of 2015 haha.
and i think its bad yes. and dumb. it’s pretty dumb.
i also have to go to a 4 yr olds bday party in 20 min and i’m really not interested.
i ordered a bag of the pecan pie when i ordered the advent calendar. i don’t hate it but i wish i liked it more.
i suspect it will grow on me though. you know how that can happen with a tea.
Advent calendar tea!
(This might be tomorrow’s tea? I didn’t drink days 1 & 2 yet and I brought day 3 & 4 home since I keep my Dammann calendar at work. It’s So Pretty!)
I brought home 100g of this tea years ago when I visited Paris. When I was in the store I could tell I was gonna like it from the description alone. And I love getting to drink it again!
There are a few teas in the two advent calendars that I haven’t had, so that’s nice, but there are probably many more teas I’ve already tried that it will be fun to revisit.
I’ve mostly been drinking the same 5 teas for months and months. Also coffee. Work has been hard for the past 1.5 years and I’ve been working LAaaaaTE nights and drinking coffee to get through. Really too much coffee.
But let’s turn that around!! I have so much tea to drink! And it’s very exciting.
I’ll see you around soon!
i tasted a new tea!
AND i’m logging it!
i hope to log more. i have A LOT of tea to drink.
A LOT a lot.
this was a sample tea that came with my order. (della terra had my FAVORITE vanilla!)
i do like this blueberry tea. it’s just the right amount of berry hint.
and i’m always happy to try a sample.
(i keep checking the site for chocolate orange. that was a della terra fave too.)
