drank Earl Grey (Decaf) by Tetley

Made with too much milk & sugar, but that’s okay. I am legit TOO LAZY to clean out my tea strainer now, so I had to choose something bagged. Saaad.

CrowKettle

I have days like that. I even bought bags for my loose leaves in preparation for my laziness.

Ozli

CLEVER! I should get me some of those.

Cavocorax

That’s a great idea! :) I have tea in bags for days like that…

I brew this one really strong. I like that it’s not a sweet tea. It’s easing the pressure in my chest, augh. At least I am not boogers-sick.

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA
299 tasting notes

Had this tea last night while watching Elementary (LOVE IT SO SO SO MUCH) and mostly remembered to drink the whole thing but a little bit got lukewarmish – noticed the coconut is really present when it cools down! (Bonus?? Iced??)

I napped SO MUCH yesterday and slept in until almost noon today, I hope I am on the mend. :/

Ozli

Huh, it’s funny looking at the rating & yeah, enjoying the heck out of that tea last night, how I never remember I really like this one. I read the name/look at the pouch and think, ehhhh. But OBVIOUSLY I really like it. Don’t like the name, though. It is now called FRUITY COCONUT.

Cavocorax

Haha. Re-naming it is a good idea! I’d probably go with Almond Coco Blast, or Mountain Marzipan. I love the coconut but I’m super aware of the almonds.

Ozli

Ok welll, you’re obvs way better at naming things than me! :P Those are both great names :-O

Cavocorax

Haha well I obvsly have the advantage if you’re feeling sick.

drank Cocomint Cream by DAVIDsTEA

Then I made some of this tea when I thought I was probably past the worst of it and FELL ASLEEP WHILE IT WAS BREWING which is UNCOOL, as it is my favourite. :/ I hate being sick.

Cavocorax

Awww… :( Do you use your microwave timer when you’re brewing? Maybe that would wake you up?

Hope you’re feeling better soon!!!!

Cavocorax

I don’t think J and I are doing Xmas presents this year, so I’m tempted to buy a tin of this for myself and wrap that up.:)

Ozli

Well, if my phone is near to hand I’ll use that timer, but a lot lately I’ve just been winging it. :/ Space case.

That sounds like a really good xmas plan! :D

Cavocorax

:( I am too. That’s why I HAVE to use the microwave timer. It’s easier than setting my phone at least: #lazy #OrOCD?

(My Xmas plan may include one of DavidsTea perfect mugs – I want a big mug and my old steeping basket sometimes opens up as I’m lifting it out of the tea, ruining everything!)

Ozli

We don’t have a microwave and I can’t figure out how to make the stove clock fall back, so let’s not even go there :P :P :P My phone IS really easy though.

Eeeee! Nice! Which one??

Cavocorax

I’m undecided. I like this heat-sensitive one: http://bit.ly/YxKi0Z but this Nordic style is pretty nice and holds more: http://bit.ly/VdBzJX

And not having a microwave is a great excuse. No one wants to mess with the clock stove!

Ozli

Lol, I felt like such a dumbass after I posted about the stove that I got all >:[ and FIGURED IT OUT. \o/?

Oooh. Those are so pretty. I’d go for the first one, if it were meeeee, I like the shape of them.

Cavocorax

\0/

And I like the shape of the first one better too. Maybe I’ll luck out and they’ll still have the bigger size in the fall print when I go to the store …

So I started getting sick and I thought I’d have this tea, so I made some and walked off and found it a half hour later. Augh.

Cavocorax

I drank some of this today and paused for a moment to remember your lost cup.

Ozli

Aw, man, thanks. It means a lot.

drank English Breakfast by Twinings

I’ve never been a fan of English Breakfast but this is really kind of blah. It’s a cleaning out the cupboard cup ;)

drank Winter Wonderland by Shanti Tea
299 tasting notes

When dry, it smells exactly like egg nog! Then mostly cloves/black tea after steeping. Sadness. Yummy though; I like it with a bit of sugar.

Cavocorax

Awww. I hate those teaser teas. That’s (part of) why I don’t buy tea from DavidsTea purely based on how it smells.

Ozli

It kinda worked out because I don’t really like egg nog? So it took me a while to figure out the smell aside from “sweet” and “disturbing” hehehe but it’s pretty good! Having a mocha rn, tsk tsk! Kelly bought me a box of those Starbux Via packets.

Cavocorax

:p Those sound pretty good too. I think I should get fancy today and make a latte. But I’m thinking a nap would be great too. #decisions #doboth?

I shouldn’t like this tea. Damn cloves, and oranges. But it’s good. >:(

I’m not actually grumpy about it, though. It’s too good to be grumpy about. Gonna sit on the couch and watch Christmas movies with a cat on my chest.

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.
