Whew! Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having a great late autumn/early winter/ start of the holidays.
I am running like nuts- in fact I am about to start out on a huge trip! I am entirely freaking out.
I’ll tell you all about it when I get home, but sufficient to say it’s one of the trips I’ve always wanted to take, and I am excited and terrified.
But first, tea.

Nattie

Hi Rosehips, hope you’re doing well! Enjoy your trip (:

I’ve always really liked Boston. Always keep a tin around when the mood strikes

ashmanra

I hope the trip is amazingly wonderful!

gmathis

Safe travels to you!

Ok! Progress! I only woke up a half an hour before my alarm, not my full alarm!
These periods (stress, exhaustion), leads me to drink almost nothing but comfort teas. I look forward to doing some new tea-drinking, but that is not today.
Yum to comfort teas!

Ugh.
So Saturday I was felled my a mighty migraine, which had me sleeping and unable to eat all day.
I am much better now, but my sleep has been screwed up. Daylight savings time is probably not helping, either.
This is day two of waking up at least an hour before my alarm, which is not great. I am really, really busy at work (some stress there), and I have a huge trip coming up in two weeks that I need to prepare for.
Ugh.
Help me, cup of tea, you are my only hope.

gmathis

I can see that grainy hologram of you reaching for your favorite mug :)

Rosehips

Exactly!

It’s been a weird week.
Last night, in a completely round about and accidental way I learned that my ex had got married recently.
This is not bad news! We broke up years ago, it was a very sad break up, but it was for the best, and he and I are still friendly. I’ve known about his girlfriend for ages, and I’ve always wanted him to have all he wants in life.
But it’s still an odd sensation. I was with him for the better part of a decade, and there was a long time that I thought that would be our future. I don’t regret anything about our relationship, or our break up, but it’s still something that has knocked me a bit unbalanced.
Oh, adulthood. There are a few weird nuggets in it, arn’t there? And emotions are weird!
But, there is tea. Yum. It’s finally cold enough to really get relaxed when I drink a cup of tea. We are heading into my favorite time of the year.

ashmanra

Big virtual hug to you, from another adult who is astonished by all of life’s weird nuggets…but embracing life anyway!

gmathis

It’s unsettling to hear huge news secondhand. Hope you have some comforting blankie-and-tea time ahead this weekend.

Its been a crazy few weeks, and yesterday ended in a client yelling at me. Sigh.
Also Daylight Savings Time is annoying me. I used to like the autumn adjustment best, but now I find I cant stay asleep all the time I should be asleep. Bleh.
But this morning it is raining, huge, satisfying rain.
This is an apple cinnamon tea, which is pretty nicely balanced between the apple and the cinnamon. Thats great, as I don’t want the cinnamon to overwhelm.
A nice cup of tea and some rain will do a lot towards making this week ok.

gmathis

Yay, rain! No yelling here.

Kelmishka

Hope your week improves!

ashmanra

Ah, Rosehips! I hope our well wishes will go some way toward washing away the yellies. Sorry you had to experience that. I will close my eyes and imagine having a cup of tea with you and talking of happy things. You do it, too!

Happy Halloween!
I don’t have any pumpkin blends in my cupboard today, so I will drink this cup that, to me, is the quintessence of fall.
Yum.

ashmanra

I agree! Fall with a book and blanket!

Happy Halloween! I wish I liked this tea, it sounds so good!

gmathis

May your pumpkins be plump and your leaves be crispy.

drank Muffin Tea by Tea Punk Teas

So this tea is almost straight up cinnamon, and maybe a smack of clove. Its a very heavy sort of tea.
I wish there was a more “muffin-y” element to this tea.

Do you ever have those weeks that are so busy that there is nothing except some of your favorite teas that will do?
This is that week.
New teas require more brain cells than I have.

ashmanra

I love the nostalgia of some old favorite teas. Queen Catherine often causes the song “Good Life” by One Republic to start playing in my head.

Hope you find an oasis of rest or two in this busy week!

gmathis

Indeed. Sometimes you can indulge in teas that require you to think; sometimes you just need a faithful no-brainer.

In my recent spate of tea ordering I got a huge bag of this, and what a relief it is to have a favorite back in my cupboard!
Yuuuum.

gmathis

You’re making me homesick for TOL! I wish they’d add it to the Harney retail store lineup so I could just run to Target and nab some.

So after the week of hundred degree temperature, it then turned dramatically colder, and it has been raining buckets for the last two days.
Unbelievable.
I almost could not see on my way home yesterday, and was carrying a flashlight around, in case the power went out.
A perfect time to drink the first cup of Boston of the season.
Ahh, thats the stuff.

gmathis

Rain sounds lovely, even in buckets.

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.
