This was a freebe with my latest Lupicia order. I’m iffy on green tea, but I’m willing to give it a turn.
I was hoping for something with a little more ooph, and flavor. As it is, I go just got green tea out of it. Eh, oh well. Worth a shot.

I’ve killed this at work. It was not memorable, so I won’t bring it back.
But it was nice to have something warm to drink while I’m fighting this dratted cold.

And I have a cold. Bleh.
Its Friday, though, so I’m starting off with this, which is a really lovely, flavorful tea. I am constantly surprised there are no additional flavors in it, its just so rich!
A nice start to my cold day.

It is pouring, and windy, and when I got home from work the power was out. It turned back on long enough for me to heat up dinner and toast an english muffin, before it winked out again. And I had no flashlights. This is an oversight for anyone in a house by herself, so I ran to the store to grab some flashlights. During this trip the power company helpfully called me to tell me the power was out.
I had just managed to assemble the batteries in my new flashlights when the power came back on, and the power company helpfully texted me to let me know the power was back up and running.
I’ve brought this to work as the new work tea, where it is performing like a champion. I don’t need to pay attention to it, its sweet and generally pleasant, and I don’t feel sad if I’ve not been swept away by flavor, as I’m busy.
Gosh, what a night. I think some more tea is called for.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! I had a lovely day, and was very happy.
This morning it is cold and rainy, so a warming vanilla and spice tea is called for. This has made me go yum, and thats perfect on a blustery day.

This was taken to work, and then drunk down from there. Indeed, teas that I’m only meh about go down an absolute treat at work, where I can drink them without feeling like I need to pay too much attention to them. Its glorious!
So I’ve drunk this down! Wahoo!
I’m going to lower my rating, as it could not catch the spark of pure delight it used to. I’ll have to think really hard about putting this back in my cupboard.

Ooof! Hello everyone, I’ve had a very busy few weeks, so I’m happy to have a bit time to catch up my logging!
Its a day of errands for me, as these holiday days often are. Its good to have a holiday weekend to run around in. Makes life that much easier.
But even though I have a lot to do today, its an easy morning, which is great. So I can induldge in a more low key tea.
I like this, but I don’t loooove it. Its a vanilla tinged chai, which is not particularly heavy on the spices. This is actually a feature, not a bug for me, and I appreciate its delicate balance. Good for a lazy morning!

As we are experiencing a winter storm at the moment (complete with pouring rain and potential flooding) I thought this would be a good choice for the morning.
Its a nice blend on a cold morning, with a touch of spice, a touch of fruit, and just the tiniest hint of rose in it.

I am not getting this one right yet. It has a strange and chemical aftertaste to me.
Grumble, I want cake tea!

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.
