drank Original Masala Chai by Yogic Chai

Yogic makes an excellent chai. I love that cardamom is the dominant flavor. It’s definitely a top spice for me. I love it in cookies and rice pudding and now chai :)

Catching up on Tivo tonight. I think Captain Hook is a nice addition to the Once Upon a Time cast. He’s beautiful. Also crazy excited to see Ethan Embry will be on the show :) Love that guy!

Ah yes, Cpt Hook is an interesting character to have brought in! I am trying to figure out what on earth they’ll do for a third season. It really feels like things should wrap up this time, and if they extend things any longer it will get absurd.

drank Mother's Bouquet by Harney & Sons

This has been in my cupboard for quite a while and thought it was time to try it. I think it is the first herbal tea I’ve had, so I don’t have much to compare it to. I bought it because it had promises of floral notes. The only notes I’m tasting are citrus and chamomile. It’s a mild flavor and kind of bores me. I think I’ll pass this on to my friend Kim :)

After sipping down many of my opened samples this weekend, I thought I deserved to open a new one :) Can you go wrong with oolong?!? I have yet to taste one that I didn’t care for.

This reminds me of a milder, smoother, and almost buttery Irish or English breakfast. My tea horizons are expanding thanks to Steepster.

Update: Second steep brought out some fruity notes. Interesting :)

Sipdown :( Super sad face here. This tea was absolutely delicious and I’m sad to see it go. Even more sad that it’s been out of stock at Boston Tea for a couple of months. I hope they restock sometime.

I did find the Bentley’s bagged version of this. It’s just not as good. It will have to do from now on.

I probably should have chosen my Scottish Toffee Pu-erh to complement my watching of Monarch of the Glen, but I wanted to finish up this last sample of the day :) I love this show & this tea!

drank Coconut Oolong by Zen Tea

Sipdown Sunday in effect y’all!

I have 3 more samples with just a couple cups worth of tea left. This is a favorite and a possible purchase :) It’s buttery and perfectly coconut-y. YUM!

Christmas decorations came down today. It’s always sad to see them go. If I had it my way, they’d be up all year. But honestly, I don’t want to have to dust them all.

Morning Light for this Sunday morning. I love how convenient tea bags are and this is an excellent sachet tea bag. Makes it easy for me to enjoy tea at church. Sad to see this sample gone. Thank you again, LiberTEAS for sharing.

Saturday Sample Sipdown is over. Hitting the good bedtime teas now :)

I love this tea. Happiness in a cup.

Conclusion on this tea for me: too green. Hi Ho! Kermit the Frog here!

Sipdown #3.

Enjoying my last cup of this beautiful tea. It’s so light and floral. Unlike the movie I’m watching – Immortals. Sheesh. I’ve not watched a movie with this much gore in a long time. People literally smashing other people to bits. I guess the one thing that goes with this tea is the beauty that is Henry Cavill.

It’s not living as such that’s important, Theseus. It’s living rightly.
