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
1667 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!

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.
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!


is this a limited edition??


winter tea so it will go away

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

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.

drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea
1667 tasting notes

This was a gift from my boyfriend for my birthday, as h knows I like a Darjeeling, and my stash is currently lacking in Darjeeling’s.
And, I’m pleased to say, this is a solid, decent cup of tea! This isn’t a fancy, bells and whistles cup of tea. Rather its good and solid and just the right thing for those days when you just want a good cup of tea.
Well done, boyfriend! Well done indeed!

drank Cardamom French Toast by DAVIDsTEA

So a few weeks ago, on my birthday, I gave myself permission to use a fair chunk of the yearly tea budget and snap up some favorites.
Ah, Cardamom French Toast, you buttery lovely cup of joy, it’s good to have you here. Its the perfect accompaniment to Sunday morning.


Glad you snapped some up before it’s gone, and happy uber belated birthday if I haven’t congratulated you already!

Happy belated birthday to you! And yes, this tea is quite fab. I may have a cup just now myself. I wonder how much extra of this I need though. 100gr? 200gr? Before I get tired of it. Still, when I crave this one, nothing else will do.

Ahh, I’m in a good mood. It was a long and very busy week, but it went off successfully, and today is Saturday! And the best kind of Saturday, where I’m off to something fun! Plus I’m feeling ever so much better, so it is all good.
I’ve decided that now I have working tastebuds and a nose again, its time to drink something lovely.
Oh Tower of London, I do love you. Its like the subtler sister of Paris, with the black tea accented by honeyed stone fruits. Its just lovely.


That does sound really lovely. :)


I can never quite decide which one I like better – Tower of London or Paris. I think maybe that I like Tower of London just a wee bit better. Must be the honey flavor. Crazy for honey!

drank Snow Day by DAVIDsTEA

And tonight I’m having some of this. I seem to have quite a lot of it still, which is a bit mystifying. I thought I was drinking this faster!
I can’t quite put my finger on what’s lacking here, but something is. All the parts are there to be quite magnificent, but its just not coming together. Hmm.

Now, normally I don’t try new teas when I’m in a hurry, or am not feeling well. I don’t think it gives me a good impression of the teas, and I’d like to get to know a new blend more slowly than that.
But I broke the rule for this tea, drinking my first cup of it as I rushed around getting ready, and also while stuffed up.
But I have a sense that this won’t make a huge impression, even without those handicaps. But next time I try it, I’ll do it properly.

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.
