On the 3rd day of Christmas…

Okay, so my friend Kim and I are a day behind. Hoping to catch up this evening with Earl Black.

At first sip, this reminded me of Adagio Teas Lemon Cloud Rooibos. It has a very similar flavor. I can definitely taste the lemongrass. Green tea is not my favorite, but this was enjoyable. The more I sipped it, the more I could taste the grassy flavor of the green tea.

This tea was calling to me this morning from my tea cabinet. I was in the mood for a sweet dessert tea this morning and this did not fail me. A little sugar and milk…brilliant!! This is taking my Monday morning blues away and helping me focus on the work ahead this week.

While shopping at Elaine’s Tea Shoppe in Toledo, I came across this tea and loved the idea of earl grey and jasmine – two of my favorite teas.

It is enjoyable. I don’t want to rate it just yet. I feel like I need to have another shot at it to truly know how I feel.

drank Breakfast Smoothie Honeybush by 52teas

On the 2nd day of Christmas…

This was surprisingly enjoyable. I have to admit that at first smell, I thought for sure I would not like this. I’m not a fan of bananas and that is the main scent of the honeybush.

It tastes much like Juicy Fruit bubble gum.

I’m really enjoying these daily teas and sharing them with a great friend. Looking forward to finding what tomorrow holds.

I love when I find a tea I can enjoy without any additions. Smooth, creamy toffee with the rich, dark, earthy pu-erh – perfect blend of flavors. Each sip promises that this will be a staple on my tea shelf. WOW!!!

Picked this up at Elane’s Tea Shoppe in Toledo. So glad I did. What a delightful way to begin my day :)

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas

So glad Steepster is working again this afternoon. Wrote this in the morning:

YAY! The 12 days before Christmas is finally here which means…52Teas 12 Days of Christmas!!!

Did you know that the actual 12 days of Christmas are the 12 days after Christmas that lead to Epiphany? It’s the day we celebrate the arrival of the wise men as well as the baptism of Jesus. Pretty cool.

But anywho, the tea for Day 1 is Cotton Candy black tea :) Cotton Candy is my favorite fair food and can’t get enough of it. My family did Thanksgiving at Golden Coral this year and they now have cotton candy. Sadly, they didn’t make much of it. I joked (maybe) that my whole dinner was going to be cotton candy. This definitely tastes like cotton candy. I added sugar because cotton candy is spun sugar :) YUM! Taking some to my friend Kim this morning. Sharing this tea was my Christmas gift for her. She’s on Steepster now! She’s a beautiful writer so I can’t wait to see what she has to say about the teas she tastes.


I don’t think I could wait till after Christmas to open my teas!

Good job converting another person to Steepster.


Hooray for another Steepsterite!


I don’t think I could wait either :) Although I’m already a day behind. I’m really excited my friend is on Steepster. It’s nice to have someone I actually know in real life to share this with me.

I felt like making a foamy tea latte and decided to go with my newest addition. I’m surprised to taste cinnamon since it wasn’t listed in the ingredients and I’m a little disappointed not to taste more ginger. It seems like when cinnamon is in tea it overpowers every other flavor, so maybe that’s what’s happened. It has a nice creamy vanilla smoothness with it. I’m not going to rate this until I have it again. I want to give it a second chance to impress me :)


How do you make a foamy tea latte?

This was the sample tea today at the Komfort Tea Spot in Defiance. This was only my second time at this particular establishment.

The tea has a very nice gingerbread flavor. At first, I didn’t recognize that it was rooibos :) It was sweet on its own. I nearly bought some, but the store sales start at 2 ounces and I wasn’t sure I wanted that much of it. I may change my mind later and wish I had bought some.

drank Fireside Spice by Della Terra Teas
205 tasting notes

The plan today was to try to go the entire day without tea. I’ve been feeling fuzzy brained lately and wondered if it had to do with tea consumption. Then the mailman delivered a package of tea I ordered from Della Terra. Each of the teas were calling to me…so I gave in.

This tea was nearly everything I had hoped for. The dry tea smells heavenly and could be a potpourri to scent your house (if you wanted to waste it). The first flavor I tasted was a strong cinnamon. Kind of like a red hot. But quickly the other flavors come out – vanilla and ginger. YUM! The more I sip it the more I enjoy the smooth flavor of the vanilla.

Now the question is, can I resist the urge to make a second cup?!?

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas
205 tasting notes

Just made a foamy tea latte with this delicious tea. This is definitely my favorite dessert tea. PLEASE Della Terra keep this as a regular! I don’t think the 4 ounces I’ve purchased will last long enough and I’m too broke to buy more right now :)


I know!!! I NEED more but can’t purchase right now as I have too many other obligations – Holidays – Daughter’s bday and I owe one of my sororitea sisters for a tea membership we are splitting lol I can’t buy more tea right now BUT OMG I love this stuff it HAS to stay around!
Please Della Terra!


I think we should start a campaign to save Eight Candles :)


Im in! :)


Just made a discussion topic about it :) What else should we do with this campaign??


Going to check it out now :)


We should also write them :) Or facebook comment on it!


I just sent them a message and commented on facebook. I’m totally serious about making this happen!!


We are giving some serious Della Terra love tonight ;)

A cup of tea, a blanket, and a book – my 3 favorite things.

Generally my favorite teas tend to be oolong, black, or green.

My tea ratings reflect my feelings about the tea. That’s just how I roll.

My profile picture is of my mom and I. She is my best friend and the person who introduced me to tea and tea cup collecting.
