103 Tasting Notes

85

Whew, back at work again and there’s snow on the ground and I’m exhausted and congested and depressed but… it’s the 11th hour of the day and I’m drinking Elevenses (that paragraph in the Hobbit about multiple meals always makes me laugh) and it’s a lovely enough tea for sure, but with these Lorna Doone shortbreads I’m nomming on in true Hobbit style, it’s DIVINE. Blueberry tea and shortbread cookies – yes, please.

Is it wrong to post a tea more than once? IDK. Today is awful, again, but Stiles tea helps. And feels from this week’s episode. And fic. I leave you with fic recs:

Officer!Stiles (from the other day): http://archiveofourown.org/works/1152767
Unicorn!Stiles: http://archiveofourown.org/works/913431
Tentacle!Stiles: http://archiveofourown.org/works/783295

OMGsrsly

Eee!! I read the Officer!Stiles one already. So thank you for more recs. Haha.

Hahahahahaha. I am not into Teen Wolf but I do love all the types of fics! I need to label everything Unicorn! Tentacle! etc.

TeaLady441

Also I just sent a friend a random tweet with those links. :P Hope she enjoys them but seriously! TENTACLES! UNICORNS! YES!

TeaLady441

(Also her response was, Oh I read a Unicorn story, no wait this is a DIFFERENT one).
Fandom…. ILU

Earl Grey… ah, I get it now. And here I thought it was referring to some copyrighted gray wizard…

It’s earl grey with blackberry flavor – what’s not to like? Everything else about this week. But nothing about this tea.

This tea is weird and spicy, and I like it. I’m drinking it out of a really cheap, stained coffee mug so maybe some coffee remnants got through. I really need a tea mug update!

Had this yesterday while cooking Polish food and watching TeWo with my sis… while wearing my Stiles hoodie. Sometimes fandom just services itself. 3rd cup of the day after Sebastian Michaelis & Forest Draught.

Smoky and bitter! HAHAHAHAHA oh Derek. I’m GREATLY AMUSED by these Stilinski & Hale blends. I thought this one was a bit harsh, but it def grew on me after a few sips.

OH, I GET IT – CHERRY. STILES. CHERRY. Stiles is a virgin. (Don’t worry, Stiles, your sourwolf will figure it out someday.)

In the bag, this tea smells kind of ridiculous and annoying, like cough syrup (or Stiles) but the more you drink it you realize how awesome it is and you want it have it around all the time (like Stiles). Who doesn’t love cherry, almond, & cocoa? It’s like chocolate cherry pie.

I’ve had other Stiles teas, and they’re usually very very green (STILES SMELLS LIKE FRESHLY CUT GRASS TO SOURWOLVES IN FANON, GET IT?) which is totally fine, but I am very amused by the jokey cherry hokeyness of this tea which becomes more familiar and sweet and reminds me of my mom’s cherry pie recipe (with lots of almond extract) in the end. See, memories of mom. How many ways can this tea be tied to Stiles? Let me count the ways. No, really, let me…

OMGsrsly

Eee! Awesome!

OMGsrsly

Also, I read an au fic last night where Stiles works in a tea shop.

oddree

OH! Link me, please :) I’m in the middle of a deputy!Stiles fic, and I’ve only read coffee shop AUs.

OMGsrsly

Whoops, it disappeared. Darn markup. deputy!Stiles is good. :)

oddree

Here is the deputy!Stiles fic: http://archiveofourown.org/works/1152767
…. and there’s another one she’s written that I’ve started. I’m on a roll!

OMGsrsly

OMG, just the summary is golden. :D Thank you!

Thanks to Shmiracles <3 I get to try SO MANY FANDOM TEAS !!! Nightvale, Teen Wolf, Black Butler, Hobbit, Sherlock. I’m drinking Stiles & Derek this afternoon, and for breakfast I get Elven Nectar tea, which is a beautiful little tea. It tastes like forest springtime, apricot & marigolds. Like golden fruit flowers nectar – just like the name. I’m excited to try more teas but I knew I wanted to get up this morning and drink this first. Yay Friday!

oddree

My comment got cut off and condensed :( Well, this tea tastes like apricots and marigolds – really beautiful. I get so many fandom teas to try – Black Butler, Teen Wolf, Nightvale, Hobbit. Thanks, Shmiracles!

Shmiracles

100!! BAM! what a great friday you’re having!

(i may or may not have just looked for the elvish translation of tea)

(i did not find the answer, but i did learn that “Auta miqula orqu” is how you say “Go kiss an orc”)

oddree

Every tea gets bonus points if it tastes like its name!

drank Rose de Chine by Palais des Thes
103 tasting notes

Chinese black tea? Roses? It’s like they made this one just for me, and it’s so lovely. Too bad I just drank the last of it : ( I would drink a small mountain of this tea.

do you think you like this one even a little more than the Le Palais des Thes version by the same name? er probably both the same.
i suppose we’ll need more than one company anyways, if we’re gonna buy you that tea mountain.

oddree

What version was I drinking?? I thought it was Le Palais des Thes. I can’t keep track anymore, Shmiracles !!!

Shmiracles

oh woops you were drinking American tea Room. i guess we are getting to the tea cupboard point where i should probably label more thoroughly. ;) there are worse problems to have!
