Tea of the morning, and I underleafed it. Drat!
Its been a crazy morning. The finishing up the application/background check stuff for my new position is proving extra tricky in one respect, which will eat up my lunch break today, which is annoying, as I have other things that need to be done urgently. Grrr.
And I’ve just learned that the current job is moving, which we the staff were not informed about, until the Realtor just showed up.
Argh! This might force my hand into giving notice, though I really don’t want to do that before I get the official go ahead from the new job.

Ahhh.
Done so far today – first shift of work, workout, grocery shopping, and 600 words on the novel. I’m trying to get the writing in before I have to go to second shift of work, and, if I’m diligent, I probably can.
I love a cup of tea while I’m writing. It helps me focus.
This is a very gentle cup, which is the perfect chaser from the bold tea I drank first thing this morning.
Its also a sipdown, which is great, as I’ve got a lot of winter/holiday teas coming in soon.

Cup I drank this morning, while moving at screaming high speeds. It was one of those mornings when I couldn’t decide on anything, which is always a bit annoying.
This is really strong and bold. Its not my usual cup of tea (ha), but I like it none the less!

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

Today a calming, comfortable cup.
I’m so busy! I’ve got a bunch of documents to submit to do for the new job (which I’m going through a background check for), I’ve got my current job’s duties, and then I have some work trainings to take tonight for my part time job. That can be done online, which is lovely, as I can drink a cup of tea while I do it, but still.
Sheesh. Plus Nanowrimo!
I can’t wait till things get less busy.

What’re you writing for Nanowrimo?

Rosehips

The worst novel ever! Its supposed to be a romantic comedy, and it turns out that I am neither romantic or funny. Grr. I knew I should have done a steampunk adventure.

Tea of the morning!
I’ve got such a lot to do.
In addition to being in the middle of Nanowrimo (and on track, thank you very much), I’m also running around finishing up paperwork for my new job, and still doing all the duties of the current job. Sheesh.
So I wake up in need of power! And power I shall have, in the form of this most autumnal of my teas. Yum!

Hope it helped you zing through your busy day!

Backlogged from this morning. Creamy, rich, and very nice. Perfect for a clear, cold morning.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

Sunday! And what a lovely Sunday.
I went to yoga (the one low point- a substitute instructor, who was nowhere near as good as our usual ones.), then ran a bunch of errands. I’m a weird one who loves going grocery shopping, and I made an appearance at Target as well.
I’m halfway through Nanowrimo! On track and ready to go! I’m really pleased.
This was a perfect tea for the day- so soft and warm and lovely. I love Glitter and Gold. I only ever get it in the fall and winter, as it just seems like the right sort of flavor for it.

Guh! Sub instructors when you really look forward to the normal one SUCKS! Boo.

Its finally got cold around here, to my utter, utter delight. I am drinking so much tea!
This is, perhaps, my favorite autumnal blend. It just seems to encapsulate the whole autumnal flavor experience.
Crisp, warm, with delicate layers of flavors. Yum.
Bring on the cold weather!

What’s “cold” in your part of the world? (We had frost on the windshields this morning—early fall has declined into autumn with a bite.)

Rosehips

Ha! Thats true, cold in my part of the world is around 65 degrees, so hardly cold at all for most other places.

gmathis

Right now, you can envy us. In February, when my bones ache from the chill and I haven’t seen sunshine for a month, we can trade places :)

Rosehips

Fair enough!

drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA
1597 tasting notes

I just love the smell of this- its so crisp and juicy!
It mellows a lot upon brewing, but today I’m getting a lot more of the sweetly apple-y flavor that I was hoping from. Not a Honeycrisp, but maybe a Granny Smith.
Its growing on me, and is tasty to have!

drank Apple Cinnamon by Harney & Sons

Cup of my morning.
This smells lovely, delicious and full of apple and cinnamon, like some sort of exquisite pastry.
Brewed up its not as intense in flavor as it is in sent, which is too bad. But I’ve really liked the sample I had of it!

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.
