drank Rose Darjeeling by Lupicia
674 tasting notes

Morning writing session, aided by tea.
I really like the balance here. Darjeeling can be strong, as can rose, but this blend doesnt let one flavor overpower the other one. It would be all too easy to have one of these flavors be too much, but this is a happy mix.
I like it, but its a strong cup. Be warned.

The bookworms delemma. I know I need to get up early for work, but the book is so fun that I want to lay in bed reading the night before.
As you can imagine, this is not brilliant for the sleep schedule.
But, this is the tea drinkers solution!

What were you reading?

I’m reading “The Name of the Wind” by Patrick Rothfuss. Also a historical book about the history of dueling, but it was “Wind” that kept me up last night.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia
674 tasting notes

My friends pick for the second pot of tea this morning. She’d never had a champagne tea before, and was eager to try it. And thought I’m already scrapping the bottom of this tin (need more soon!) I cannot deny a friends request to try a tea.
This is just so elegant. We sat and talked and drank tea and it just colored the whole world pink and champagne colored. Perfect.

I had time for a leisurely breakfast with my friend before I had to go to work, and she had to head off on other adventures. So it was time for two pots of tea, favorites of mine, new to her.
Started off with a classic, with the fruit and honey goodness of Tower of London. (It does seem to be all I’m drinking lately, too, which is funny). She liked how obvious the honey note was. Yay for tea friends!

My friend made it out safe and sound, and we had a lovely evening. She’s a fellow tea drinker (I know only the best people), and we had fun among my stash picking out a soothing tea before bedtime.
This was her pick, so I brewed it up.
Its the perfect spring and summer chamomile tea, complex without being overwhelming, delicious and light. A perfect end to our evening.

I wanted to like this. I wanted to soo much! Strawberry? Love! Cream? Delicious! Champagne? Yes please!
This tea? Artificially sweet and rather tart. What went wrong? Gah.
Well, I’ve brewed up the last of this as I make the final preparations to my house for this evenings visit from my friend (how did I aquire so much dust?).
Sipdown. Not sorry to see you go, tea. You are not coming back!

A friend of mine, who I met when I lived in England, is coming over to visit tonight! I am very excited, but I do need to do some cleaning. And writing, and excercising.
Time for a no holds barred tea.
Tower of London is clearly one of my very favorite teas. The honey and fruit notes is like the perfect flavors, like a fruit tart pastry. Yum. And its a 365 tea, perfect for all times of the year.

Have some good quality time (and tea) with your friend tonight :-)

drank Vanilla by Lupicia

Why isnt this more intense? I would really like a more hearty vanilla taste in this tea. This has got vanilla, but its light, floating about the base flavor.
Oh well.

Writing and working out is done. Whew!
Spring cleaning is in progress. I have already broken one of my favorite mugs, a lovely yellow striped one, which I doubt I can replace. Grr! Why is it always the ones that are discontinued/antique, and not the ones from Ikea! Gah!
I’ve heard this is discontinued! Oh no! Well, I shall enjoy this amazing perfumed cloud while I can.

This is the best tea to have ever been created.

Bio

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.
