Oh I am exsausted. I could not sleep last night. It took forever to get to sleep, and then I kept waking up, including half an hour before my alarm was supposed to go off. Ugh.
Probably its the heat. Its very hard for me to get proper sleep when its been so hot out. And its unpleasant. Ugh!
How is it Monday again? Every time I think I’ve just settled into the weekend, bam! Monday! Time to go back to the office! Gah!
Tea, help.
On a morning like today I am not fiddling about with Meh teas. Nope. Bring me the standby, fruit and honey cup of Tower of London. Bring it to me!

This is one of the teas from Harney that I am very keen to try. How strong of a bergamot flavor does it have, if you don’t mind my asking?

Rosehips

Its present, but not overwhelming. I’m not huge on bergamot, (to the point that some Earl Grey’s are too much for me), but this is a mild and managable one. I highly recommend it.

Cameron B.

I was just curious because Paris apparently has bergamot in it, but I don’t really taste it at all. Perhaps my palate is underdeveloped. :P

Rosehips

I think that Tower is Paris’s sibling. Same amount of bergamot (Paris is one of my other favorites)

Cameron B.

Okay, I’ll be sure to try it sometime soon. Thanks for all the info. :)

TheTeaFairy

I’m with you Cameron, Paris doesn’t taste like bergamot to me either, even if I know it’s in there…

Dexter

(Paris and Tower OOOOOZZZZEEEEE blerg to me. No thank you, can’t do it. I think it’s a case of “if you don’t like something, that’s ALL you taste” – others that don’t mind it, don’t notice it as much – IMHO)

TheTeaFairy

Dexter, you are too funny ;-)

Its going to be 107 today. It was 80 when I woke up this morning. Ugh. Its going to be a very, very unpleasant day. My air conditioner is already going. Ugh.
Well, a “hot weather” tea seemed appropriate.
I’m almost out of this lovely tea, again. I’ll miss it very much when its gone, but as this is the unexpected second time I’ve had it, it may not nessisarily be gone forever once I’ve drunk the last bit.
Its going to be hard to excercise this morning, but I’ll make it work. Best to get it over with, and then my lightest clothes, and hiding away from the hot, miserable world.

Tealizzy

Gonna be 104 here. :P Still planning to run, but if it’s 90 by the time we go, a walk will have to suffice. I hate when it gets this hot. I guess the good part is we’ll have the rest of the day to drink iced tea!!

TeaBrat

ugh, that sounds dreadful!

Cameron B.

I recently moved to New York from Kansas City, and I become increasingly glad as we get closer to summer! I hope you guys find a way to beat the heat. :)

Up, and to my shift this morning. I like my Saturday job, but I’ve never liked the part were I have to get up. Waking up is hard to do!
I’m now in the official state of drinking this just to get it drunk. Its not bad, not by any stretch of the imagination, but its also not my favorite. It will be nice when I get to the end of it.

Anna

(I read this five times and couldn’t get past the, ‘drinking this just to get drunk’, thinking her job must be so stressful but is tea with alcohol really the solution and am i even reading this right oh wait no.) I hope you have a good shift. <3

Rosehips

Ha! Nope, not that sort of drunk! That would be an adventure, wouldent it?

TheTeaFairy

But, but…I get tea drunk all the time…does that count?

Rosehips

I think its the best sort. I get Tea Drunk as well. Its a lovely state.

I woke up convinced it was Saturday. Argh! I want this week to be over.
Its going to be 100 degrees around here today, which means I need to drink my tea while I can. And I can right now.
Short steeps! Thats the magic combo of this, to make it enjoyable. And I am enjoying it. I still think I’m not going to buy more, after its done, but hey, I’ll sip it down without too much trouble.

Late morning snack of a pot of this, and an english muffin with local honey. Its one of my favorite rituals, when I get to do it, tea and a tasty snack.
This is undoubtedly one of my favorite teas. Easily one of my favorites. Honey, fruit, and a gentle aroma. Its a winner.

sherapop

Nice pairing! ;-)

Early morning cuppa, before going off to work.
Good. Gingery! Other positive discriptive words!
Can you tell I’m exsausted?

sherapop

I can indeed see that you are “exsausted”! ;-)

Ah. A long day. Satisfying, mostly, but long.
Cup of tea post fencing, while I cool down enough to take a shower.
Two tea bags is the right amount for me of this blend. Its pleasant, and indeed lemony, but if it steeps too long there is a faintly chemical aftertaste.
Ah well, nothing for it, but to watch the steep time.
Still, its light and refreshing tonight.

I’ve returned to my desire to drink more “meh” teas. To sip them down, move them out of my cupboard and never think of them again. I have a few teas that I’ve only had once, and have been languishing. And my palatte may have changed, so its time to try again.
Er, nope. I am still finding this bitter, and not particularly complex or interesting. I think it would be improved with milk, but I’m out of milk at the moment. I’m usually a person who likes my tea black, but this might improve with additions.

I could not decide on a tea this morning. I stood in the kitchen, the kettle merrily boiling away, staring at my stash in bleery indecision. Nothing sounded quite right out of the teas I’ve got currently, so I turned my attention to my little bowl of samples.
Poor sample bowl. I’ve been rather ignoring it lately, in favor of other teas. But I’ve still got a few teas to try for the first time, and its a good idea to try.
JusJames, I think, sent me this one a while back, and I’d forgotten all about it. Well, now is the time!
This is a very pleasant cup of strait black tea. Warm and mellow, with just a hint of astringency, and a pleasant finish, with just the slightest hint of honey to tease the mouth.
I’d say it was a good choice for this puzzled morning.

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.
