Getting a bit more orange out of this today, though the jasmine is right there in your face. The heat has yet to be turned on in our building, so I’ve got a little space heater right next to me (3 foot safety radius? I don’t know what you’re talking about), and my HotShot loaded with water for the next cup. Hello, cold weather!

If I hide from the Monday, the Monday will go away. Right?

If the Monday will go away, will the November?

Jaime

As long as I get Thanksgiving, November can go away, too.

Switching from Christmas back to fall. Absolutely love this stuff…definitely will be heading back to WM to try and get another tin before the fall season is over.

Hmmm… I’ve been wondering about this! I’m obsessed with anything pumpkin this time of year! :-)

Jaime

I think it’s fantastic. Do you have a World Market anywhere close to you?

Meghann M

I wonder if they will carry these until Thanksgiving…or at least another week. I haven’t made the trek to mine yet. Bought from Harney, Teasource and Teavana instead…oops:P

Jaime

I’ll probably be going back this weekend or next. Yeah, I’ve went way over budget on tea this past month. David’s, Octavia, Sanctuary T…and am now anxiously awaiting Frank’s new one to see how awesome it is.

@ Jaime – we have one across town, I may have to see if they still have it next weekend when I have time to head over there. Pumpkin + Ginger = win in my book! I was a little disappointed with a few of the WM holiday exclusives last year… So I’m glad to hear that this one is good.

Jaime

Do they have any Christmasy exclusives? My first trip to WM was late January this year, so I missed all the holiday stuff. I want to make sure I don’t miss anything good!

vanilla_bookworm

Yes, I think that they usually do. We never had one in my town growing up, so it is always fun for me to go there! Lol. Last year they had Spiced Chocolate Mint and Dream By the Fire (a cinnamon vanilla rooibos blend). I was a little disappointed with those, unfortunately. :-/. But I am curious to see what they will have this year!

Jaime

I’ve had Dream By the Fire…it was okay By the end of the tin I liked it, but don’t think I’d get it again. Spiced Chocolate Mint sounds fantastic!! Do they have different ones each year? That both excites and saddens me…because this pumpkin is too good to only be made one year.

vanilla_bookworm

I would be happy to send you some of the Spiced Chocolate Mint to try if you would like! That way you can decide if you want to buy the whole tin or not if they bring it back again this year. Just PM me and let me know! :-)

Jaime

Oh, that’d be amazing!!!! Off to pm you now.

drank Christmas Tea by Twinings

Another tea from my recent World Market trip. Couldn’t figure out what to have this morning, so I chose this one. Normally I would have set Chloe up with something last night, but I was very tired and went to bed at an unholy early hour. Expected to be up insanely early as a result, but no: I rolled out of bed a good 2 hours later than my normal time. Thus, I’m running a smidge later than I wanted (and being sore from moving furniture isn’t helping me in the speed category).

Brewed this for 3 minutes, and I think I’ll try it at 5 next time. It seems a bit watered down, but I can detect some spice and a hint of citrus. The tea is there, but still rather weak. Will wait and rate after I’ve tried the 5 min steep.

Profile

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.

Location

Lexington, Kentucky
