After a weekend of having coffee in the mornings, I needed a STRONG tea to get things going today. This one. The orange really kicks me in the ass & de-fogs the brainz.

I have this steeping in the kitchen and I can smell it from here! :-o It smells really good, okay. The guys are off mailing packages and I am having a nice break. :D

….BEFORE I BAKE BANANA BREAD \o/?

After this cup though I’m gonna have to switch to decaf as I’ve also had a gigantic coffee and a tiny Coke. Bzzt!!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I fucked this up this time and it was really weak, even though I walked away from it for what felt like ages? Maybe it really wasn’t. My brain does not understand the passage of time …or distances. But yeah. Not worried because I was so pleased with it the first two times. ALSO, I was drinking coffee all morning, so that might have had something to do with it. :P

OK, this tea has definitely found a home with me. This is one I could marathon like comfort tea – in fact in the second cup I added brown sugar and milk as recommended and YUMMM. But even without, this is like a beautiful tea version of pumpkin pie. I like it both ways, but it’s really decadent with things added. OM NOM NOM NOM.

It really does taste like pumpkin. You can really smell the squash!

Cavocorax

YES! :O I was hoping you would like it! I didn’t get the big deal the first time, but I fell in love with it on my second cup. I’ll have to buy a new tin of it in the fall (unless I do an online order – I can get it sooner).

Ozli

Yeeeeah, I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying this online ASAP. ;D

Ozli

Gonna wait til after xmas when I get my sweet flavoured DT sampler, though >___> JUST IN CASE ;) ;)

Cavocorax

>__> OF COURSE. :P Man it’d be nice if they had a boxing week sale too, but it doesn’t seem like they do that sorta thing. :|

I bought myself 30g of Glitter and Gold as my xmas present though! That, and a giant Perfect Mug. It’s not online anymore, but the design I picked matches this tea pot: http://www.davidstea.com/bubble-teapot-45-oz-forest?&TF=8215E1C9208C&DEID=

Pretty…. oh man I don’thave exclamation marks on my busted keyboard…. this is really affecting the way I write… IMAGINE ENTHUSIASM HERE D:

Cavocorax

Haha. Who wears out their exclamation mark keys???? YOU DO. >__> No wait, if it was just worn out, your caps lock button wouldn’t work either. :P

Ozli

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hehe. I’m really missing my parentheses, too. /o\ But! I have an exclamation mark in my clipboard so it’s my permanent command-v right now….! :P

…..I really hope it comes back, though .___.

drank Lapsang Souchong by Tea Desire

This is LOOOOVELY! It’s like camping! Smokey and tree-ish and campfirey and nom nom nom nom. I think I need to have this on hand – I’ve never had a tea like this!

Preparation
3 min, 30 sec
Cavocorax

It’s pretty crazy eh? I imagine it would be hell if you had a sore throat, but it’s so good otherwise. It was $6 /50g at Tea Desire which isn’t bad, but I imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to find this at other stores. :)

I got a big package of tea samples from Cavocorax yesterday :D and THIS ONE was yelling at me to be first – SO SMELLY. This tea is so very CAKE! Super yummy. Of course, just as I sat down to drink it, K shows up with a coffee – so I only ended up having half, but yummers. He liked it too. Thanks Jenn!!

Lazy morning tea that I forgot I was making but it’s pretty hard to mess up Earl Grey. Or I just don’t care. :P Gotta get up some energy to shower and run all my errands today! Tis the season to send off those cards before they’re even more late……

Preparation
8 min or more

drank Sleigh Ride by DAVIDsTEA

This is really just a tart apple cinnamon cider tea for me! :D Really good for this time of year. Aaaand it has caffeine, unlike my mulled apple cider tea.

It’s funny how this tea LOOKS like it should be the Merry Cranberry because it’s so vibrantly red/pink and the MC is greenish/yellow, I think? Anyway, had this last night for the closing of Glitch.

Bio

I drink a lot of tea (and coffee!) and do other things sometimes, like hug cats (3 black cats!) and homeschool a child (the Snick, Snickety Snickface the Sharkboy) and make art and draw things and watch too much television and pretend I’m not home when people knock on the door!

I LOVE A LOT OF THINGS.

My ratings probably skew high because of this, but I can’t help being optimistic, it is the natural way of things.
