I’ve got a Mary Poppins tin going on here. How many more cups can be contained in this slender little thing? At least one more, after this one.
I want Fall! I am not going to have it, as it will be nearly 100 degrees today in my neck of the woods, but a girl can dream.
So the crisp grape flavor of this tea might be not quite right for fall, but it sure works for the weather around these parts.

By August I am dying for cool mornings and crisp air. But September is a fickle lady. sigh.

I wish I had some more of this right now. I am so tired. I am so ready to be back in bed. Its not even noon yet, and I wish I was still there sleeping.
I’m going to need a bunch more tea, today.

Its my mothers birthday, and her favorite thing in all the world is pumpkin. So, in her honor, I drink a pumpkin tea!
Why did I think I’d had this one? Did I once have this once? Anyway, it wasn’t logged, so lets go with no, I haven’t and do my initial impressions instead.
It may be me, and my steep time, but I found this both very heavy, and somewhat bitter this morning. There is a very strong spice flavor, but I can’t say I get pumpkin, though there is a touch of what might be maple floating around. It only darkens the flavor, though. I was hoping the sweetness would make it brighter.
I’ve got enough for another cup, so I can try and see if it was my steep time, or what.

Its always a little intimidating to be the only one who owns a tea. Its also a bit of a thing when you’ll be writing the very first review. I somehow feel like I’ll have done it wrong somehow…
Anyway.
Its the first cool morning of the season, and, unfortunately, the last as well for a while. Back up into the 90’s tomorrow! But I thought I’d take full advantage today, and guzzle this tea.
And its quite nice! The vanilla flavor is there, but it doesn’t overwhelm the chai spices, or make it too sticky-sweet. Its a nice balance.
The whole cup tasted somewhat mild, but that was alright. I’ll take a cozy sweater tea on a chilly morning!

So I’ve drunk this before, but apparently did not bother to log it when I did so. Whoops.
This smells amazing. Absolutely rich, fudgy, and lush. Its a earthy combination of coco and mushrooms, I’d say, and yes, maybe a touch of wood as well.
It brews up “paler” I’d say then it smells, and the coco note is gone completely. That’s not a terrible thing (chocolate and myself in teas do not always get along), but its a bit of a disconnect.
But this is still a lovely cup, strong without overpowering, and rich without being too much. I’ll enjoy this for sure.

I have a busy day ahead. I’m off to meet my tea drinking sister in the big city for high tea! Whee! I love high tea, so I’m super excited.
But I need fuel to help me get ready, and so a cup of this is what I reached for.
Ah, what can I say about Tower of London that I have not already said? Its glorious! Its just a perfect bend of tea, stone fruits, and a drop of honey in its delicious depths. I cannot recommend it enough.

High tea, yay! Hope the afternoon is splendid.

I had an upset stomach this morning, so I immediately thought of ginger. And the only caffeinated tea I’ve got today that has ginger in it (I think?) is this one.
And, you know, it did the trick! I am feeling much better, and my stomach has not been upset since I had this cup of tea.
So, all is well. An unexpected benefit!

The is the second tummy trouble I have seen posted here today! Hope all is well already!

Tea of my morning.
Ahh, but this is nice. Its all soft, almost perfumy (in the best way!), a dream of a tea.
It was perhaps a little too relaxing for my busy morning, but hey.
So I’m subbing in an office, where the boss requested me personally (even though we’ve never worked together before), and has made it clear he’s looking to start his own office, and is considering me for the position, provided we work well together this week.
So, eep! That’s big and potentially scary (after the disaster with the last boss), and potentially awesome? (hello heath benefits and full time salary again!)
So this should be an interesting week.

Sounds like just the kind of tea for this particular week to keep your cool.

This was a sadder sipdown of yesterday. I love this guy, but my tin is now empty. No worries, I’ll get more, probably sooner than I should!

This one is especially yummy if you can order the loose leaf pound bag and shake it, then store it upside down to keep those vanilla bean specks distributed. It is far and away better than the sachets. I usually find one or two frien to split a bag.

Today is apparently “I don’t really care for this tea, lets drink it down” day.
So farewell to Oolong Ice Cream, which shall not be missed.

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.
