drank La Vanille by Lupicia
870 tasting notes

I woke up this morning in a panic, convinced I was late, and thinking it was even the wrong day.
Gah. Dont know where, but it was a frantic five minutes.
Now, on to the tea!
I got both Vanilla and La Vanille when I put in my last order. I quest for the perfect vanilla tea, and I was interested in comparing and contrasting.
First up, in loose format, this is tiny. Granules instead of leaves, with the occational fragment of…. vanilla bean? Maybe?
This has not got nearly enough vanilla to please me, and an oddly bitter undertaste, which is not enjoyable. Its not so bitter that its undrinkable, but I am mightily disapointed.
Next time I’ll do a back to back test of this and Vanilla, to see what the difference actually is!

Oh man, that’s the worst feeling. I thought I’d lost my house keys this morning! I think it’s that sort of a day. hugs

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

How am I getting so close to sipdown on so many beloved teas? This could be a problem.
I’m almost out of this batch of Paris.
Ah, Paris. I figure, if its absolutly got to be Monday, then at least I should have a beautiful cup of tea to usher me into the working week.
Come on, tea, lets go.

drank Yume by Lupicia

More writer juice! Moar!
I’m almost out of this too. Yeesh, I’m just powering through my rose teas this spring! A Lupicia order may be required very soon.
Trying to figure out if the store is open. I suddenly got a yen to cook a quiche, and I dont have all the ingredients. I also want to figure this out without putting on my clothes and going out, though. Things are so nice here in my robe.
Well, I’ve got a thousand words to write still anyway.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia

Oh no. Oh the drama. This is now all gone! Oh the humanity! Why?!?!?! I wanted it to last for much longer in the springtime. Obviously I could not stop drinking it, and its how we got into this trouble in the first place.
Yum. Elegant rose tea with little sugar crystals. It tastes so glorious.
I got to sleep in today, which was a pure delight.
Today my plans are to write, drink a lot of tea, and then read my book (I am not getting nearly the amount of reading I want too lately. That must be remidied!) and eat my seasonal package of Peeps. Peeps!
Its going to be a good day.

Today I had work, a lecture on modern art, and a small shopping trip! Excelent day, but now I need to write 3000 words to be on track for Camp Nanowrimo. So I need tea.
Lets start with something with caffine. I’m tired enough to need it.
This is it- sweet, uncomplicated, mellow. Good start. Lets get cracking!

Oh I needed tea. I needed it beyond all reason. I had to do the early shift without even a single cup of the stuff. Wah!
I’m off to a lecture on modern art, and so I’m charging up with this spicy cup.
Onwards!

drank Rose Darjeeling by Lupicia

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.

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.

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.
