I’m trying to ease back into black teas, and this one is so gentle that its almost not a black tea at all. Bingo, just what the doctor ordered.
I used to really love this blend, and I still really like it, but some of the shine has come off, and now its just a strong like, rather than adoration. Thats alright, though! It’s still here when I need it.

That’s great that you’re easing back into things. I like this one too! It’s not a favourite but I’d never complain if someone were to offer me a cup. :)

Doing some work this evening, so out comes a caffine free tea, to help me along.
This just doesn’t work for me. I don’t find t to be even a little bit like a muffin, though there is a flavor of fruit and cinnamon.
Oh well, its a sipdown, so who cares!

Ahh, its raining, its cold, and I had an hour to eat lunch. So a cup of tea it is!
My stomach is coming back around to being able to handle anything other than dry toast, and I’m easing back into tea with mint, which is simple, soothing, and really, really hard to screw up.
I’m pleased to say that Numi has not achieved the messing up of mint tea, and I’m enjoying this very much.

First cup of black tea since Tuesday, and I’m feeling a little tentative about it.
I decided that I needed to go back into black tea very slowly. I needed one of my weakest tea.
I keep on not caring for this blend, unfortunately. Its weak, though, so that’s alright.
Still, I may only have one cup of this as I go.
Curse you stomach! Get better!

Hello Steepster! I’m back, after a dreadful bout of…. something. On Wednesday I got really ill, and have been slowly recovering.
My stomach is coming back up to speed, but I haven’t felt up to tea, beyond the ginger tea that I have, and today a random Milk Oolong that my boyfriend has.
I’m hoping next week to return to my tea drinking ways.

Good to have you back, although I’m sorry your stomach was attacked. I’ve been there before and it’s awful awful stuff.

I’m sorry to hear that you haven’t been feeling well. :(

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

I woke up this morning with a very upset stomach, which is not at all fun, and hasn’t really let up. Boo!
I’ve got my full day at work, plus the novel writing to do, plus some freelance work, so I’m trying to sooth the savage stomach with liberal doses of ginger tea. Help me out, Ginger!

Hope you’ll feel better so the day will go more smoothly!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Oh Frabjous day! Its actually cold out.
I celebrated instantly, by pouring myself a big mug of this, my ultimate autumnal blend, and sat breathing in its amazing aroma while cuddled up in a robe.
Its added a lovely glow to the whole day, while I joyfully tromp around in tights and a coat, and even though its been a challenging day at work, theres a sparkle in the cold air, that cannot be dented.
Oh I love fall. Its the best.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

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.

backlogged from last night.
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.

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.
