Backlogged from Halloween!
Gosh its been a busy weekend. I was running non stop, what with a Halloween party, a house guest, a work training and the start of Nanowrimo. Its an odd day when a Monday is a relief.
Pumpkin chai! Not my favorite pumpkin blend ever, but I needed a pumpkin tea on Halloween, and this is all I had. So there we go.

I’ve been greedily hording this since last December, as I love it. But now with the winter just around the corner, and the possibility of a new can, I should work on sipping this down!
Creamy, minty, delightful.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Its only 9:30 in the morning, and already about four things have gone very wrong on the day. Plus I’ve only had about six hours of sleep! Sheesh.
So I defaulted on one of the teas I really like. I’ve been doing that a lot lately. Hmm, I’ve got to remember to sip down some less impressive teas.
Ugh, off I go.

Tea of the afternoon, quickly before off to the second shift at work.
Its a perfectly nice oolong, but I never get the vanilla ice cream experience out of it. Its softly green, with a note of savory vanilla in the background, but I’m not getting the scoops of ice cream that I expected to have.
Ah well.

This is one of those teas that is useful to have in the cupboard, for the mornings when you just need to drink tea, not to pay too much attention to it. Kandy is strong, but quiet enough to stand in the background of my mind, while I’m too busy bumping into things in the morning.

Nope, not a muffin. Its a fruit blend. Its got a sharp tartness, not unpleasant, but even a little muffin like.
I can smell cinnamon in the pouch, but none in my cup, and that knocks it down on the fall flavors meter.
Its not unpleasant, but I don’t find anything special about it.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

I woke up this morning and went “Boston, I need Boston”. So I brewed it up. I had a huge desire for a crisp, fall flavor, and this is it.
I’m almost out of the pound bag I bought last year in a panic, and now am feeling the slight creep of panic again. I love Boston, I don’t want to be out! Fortunately, I can always get more.

I had a headache last night, and woke up with a headache hangover. You ever get those, where you feel drained and still a little sick? They suck.
So I brewed this up, savoring the brightness and fullness of the flavors. A sparkling light note of fruit dancing over the black base, which was strong enough to get me in motion. Off I go!
It helped with the residual headache, too. Good job, tea.

Cup of the morning, as I was away from home this morning.
I keep trying this and expecting to have cooled on this- that it wont be as good as I remember, and that never happens. I like this just as much each time I try it.
Smooth, with the vanilla and almond dancing around each other in a subtle little dance. I like it! And its so easy, with its bagged formula. So drattedly easy!
When I’ve achieved some more sipdowns, I may bring this one right back into the cupboard.

drank Lady Grey by Twinings
1568 tasting notes

Over at a friends house this morning, and the only thing on offer is this Lady Grey. (When will I learn to travel with teas?)
But the good news is I’ve had this before, and I still like it now. Its pleasant, digestible, and light. A nice start to the morning, even if I am away from home.

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.
