drank White Chocolate by Butiki Teas

Butiki tea blasphemy. I’m not very impressed with this.
The base is lovely. Gorgeous black tea base…. white chocolate though? I’m not getting any of that. Instead I’m getting a touch of something floral, which is not unpleasant, just not what I expected.
Hmm. Ah well, it can’t all be flawless.

its good to see the occasional dissenting view not every tea is for everyone! Actual White Chocolate (not the tea) just seems wrong to me anyway!

Its raining! Oh thank goodness, we need this.
And I do love the rain. Any excuse to pull out this lovely autumnal tea. It pairs very well with the rain.

Ooof. This weekend involved an emergency move of a friend, no joke in the rain, three people, an entire house, none of it packed.
I was furious. She’s is stress, but she should have been packed! She should have hired movers! I am getting too old for this.
So this weekend was bonkers. I know I drank tea, but cannot remember what, which tells you something about how tired I was.
But today it is cold and rainy, and so I had a “cooler” tea without any seasonal guilt.
I love this, but maybe next October I’ll get a little less. Heh.

Oh man, I can’t imagine the chaos. I hope you’ll now have the time to recuperate from the insanity.

There are few things in this life worse than moving. Try moving in late July in Virginia – 95F and 80% humidity! That was me last summer. Yikes!! :o I needed an iced tea IV afterwards.

Its been a long week. Thank goodness it is Friday.
So, then its time for a beloved tea. Ever have one of those days, when its time to just pull out one of the favorites? This is one.
This is wonderful. I say that every time but I don’t seem to be losing any enthusiasm for it.
Yum. Ok, Friday, lets do this.

Backlogged from this morning.
I swear, if one more person calls me today about various things, I’m going to just start an advice column to put it all in one place.
Its been that kinda day.

I could not stay asleep, which is annoying, as today is the one day I get to sleep in.
Bleh.
Lots to do in the next few days, compounded by the fact that it is Camp Nanowrimo! Yes, Nanowrimo is now three times a year, and I always do it. I’ll maybe use this morning time to start off the new book!

Ost

Wait what!? NaNo is three times a year now!? When did that happen???!? :O When is it then every year? And is the prize the same?

Rosehips

Three times! April, June and November! April and June are “camp” though, with moveable wordcount goals, or you can write non fiction.

Ost

Wow, didn’t know that! Interesting!

Alright, sipdown!
I’m gonna miss you, Fig Pudding. You were indeed full of figgy goodness. Maybe I’ll see you again in the winter!
Sipdown! Ha, take that holiday stash.

I am feeling slightly guilty over a) the amount of tea I have currently and b) the amount of fall and winter teas I have. So I’m going to make a solid effort to drink them down.
Still delicious, even though it makes me feel like there should be pumpkins instead of 80 degree weather.
Bleh.

drank Yume by Lupicia

Its going to be close to 90 degrees today. Booo! Its March, that’s absurd! In all ways absurd!
Ugh, I hate summer (especially when its supposed to be spring). I’ve never done well in the heat, I burn like paper, and its too hot for tea! Aaaah!
So a “warm weather” blend, which is to say a tea that I feel is more appropriate for warm weather than cold weather, which is fruitier blends, and florals.
Today things call for strawberry, cream and roses. Yum.

Ost

I totally feel you on the weather…it’s been absolutely miserable here. Totally like summer already :(

drank Heaven's Trash by Butiki Teas

Ooof. Work this morning was a bit of a disaster. We had a fill, who ran too long, didn’t even get to the subject, and was generally a mess.
Ugh. At least I’m done.
How am I drinking this down so fast? How are all my Butiki blends all vanishing like that? Argh!
This was a lovely blend to have tried, I liked it a bunch. I’m sad I’ll not have anymore!
Sipdown.

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.
