Yesterday may have been the tea blahs, but today I’m feeling much more myself. So a nice, pepperminty tea to start the day was just the thing.
I really like this, but I’m starting to feel the tug at the edge of my mind that says the winter flavors need to move along.

drank Peanut Butter Cup by DAVIDsTEA

So I thought I’d give this one another whirl this afternoon and, well, I’m disappointed again.
It smells so wonderful. As I opened the pouch and was hit with the pure smell of chocolate peanut butter cups, and the brew smelled grand as well.
But it tastes flat and a little sour. Why, peanut butter cup, why? What happened to you? Where is my rich and fudgy treat?
Oh well.

I suggest adding a bit of Chocolate Macaroon.

Rosehips

That is an excellent suggestion!

So this is the latest tin of sachets to get carted off to work, where I will sip as I type.
I was not a fan when I first got this, but my impression today was more favorable. I need some more cups before I can really get a proper rating in place, but I will say I didn’t flinch while drinking it down.
Hurrah for work tea! It gives new life to neglected teas.

Have you ever had a tea day when you don’t want to drink anything particularly special? I just woke up with a case of the tea blahs, where I wanted tea, but nothing fancy, nothing that required too much focus or care.
Enter Holiday Breakfast, which could be summed up as “basic.” And it was exactly the right thing for a day when I don’t want anything special.

Today has been an understeeping day. I understeeped this too, but what I got out of it was at least light and citrusy!
So you can’t hurt this one too badly, anyway.

Tea of the morning, and I’m afraid I understeeped it. Drat. I could have used some peppermint fortifications for today. Sheesh!

drank White Christmas by Harney & Sons
1492 tasting notes

This has been languishing in my cupboard for quite a while. Poor White Christmas.
I do want to make it clear that its languishing through no fault of its own, as its a very nice winter blend. There is something creamy, spicy, and a little bit citrus-y about it. Its really quite nice.
Its been languishing because its bagged and because it never seemed to be the right time to drink a white tea, in my home life anyway. So I packed it off to work, where I enjoyed a cup in the afternoons, and finally finished it off yesterday.
Hurrah for Sipdowns!

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

Whew, its been such a long week! I’ve been drinking tea, of course, but have had no time to log it. Everyone is getting sick, and work was very stressful (curses! Just when I was starting to feel more at ease in the new job!), and so I’ve been going home and not really spending any time online.
Weekend!
So I thought I’d start it off right with this, which is just such a buttery, lovely blend. Its just exactly the right tea for a Saturday morning. I didn’t think I’d go for it when I first got it, and now I’m on my second pouch. If you can grab some, then you should!

Whew, these last few days have been super busy, with a lot of work and a sick boyfriend. So tea is being drunk, but I don’t have two spare moments to rub together to get it done. Argh!
Ah well, onwards to the next thing.

drank Napa Blanc by Lupicia
1492 tasting notes

Somehow, being able to drink tea at work has now inspired me to drink teas that are forgotten, need a second look, or at the very least need a sipdown. Its a great thing, and its making me feel really reenergized.
I picked this up quite a while ago (possibly even years ago?!), and while I like the idea of all the flavors, I’ve always had some iffy-ness with green tea. I want to like green tea! It seems like it would be so refreshing at certain points in the day.
But I’m liking this better than I remember liking it, so far anyway. Its certainly not the fruitiness that I was really looking for, but its mild and generally pleasant.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
