drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Paris and Boston are battling for dominance in my cupboard. Ha! Who will be the victor? Well, me, obviously, with these two delicious teas to drink.
Its going to be 103 today, so my dreams of autumn are gone. And its back to work after a 3 day weekend. And I have a cold. Hurrah.

Hope you feel better! Staying well-hydrated with tea is a great plan of attack along with rest.

I didn’t sleep well last night. Stupid bad dreams, causing problems! Gah!
And even though its an extra day off work today, there is a massive sale going on at Goodwill, so I’m waking up and getting ready as early as if it was a work day.
I love thrift stores. They’re easily my favorite shops, and I look for them wherever I go.
Sure, I strike out every once in a while, but I’ve bought books and ballgowns at thrift stores. My favorite clothing items I own have come from the Goodwill, and my house has got some very eclectic and wonderful things, bought for $1.50.
So I’m excited. The only thing better than a thrift shop is a thrift shop on half price day!

Love our local Goodwill!

Sorry about your bad night but I hope the Goodwill sale will make up for it!

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

I do not feel quite the thing tonight. My stomach is upset, and I’m out of sorts.
Its been a while since I had this tea, so I’m pleased to dust it off and pour myself a cup of solid ginger. Good ginger, tasty ginger. Make me feel better!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Saturday! And a fun one, too. I’m off t an Anime Convention today, which is always good fun, and I am excited to go.
Significant other has a number of panels, games tournaments, and other such things that he wants to participate in, and I can’t wait to see the art in the vendors halls. I always seem to come back with a new picture.
I need to be fully energized, so thank you, Boston, for helping me out.

I had a phone interview today, with the HR department for the job I informally interviewed for on Tuesday. If they like my answers here I’ll get an in person interview.
So, I thought, as that interview went well, why not start the day the same way, with a freshly brewed pot of this lovely blend?
Maybe Paris tea will be my lucky charm tea for job hunting. I hope so!
Fingers crossed, this sounds like a good position. I like my current job, but I think its time to move on to new challenges!

Fingers crossed! You can do it! high fives

drank Celebration Tea by Harney & Sons

I am so close to a sipdown, I can taste victory!
But in the meantime I will taste this tea, which is pleasant, but nothing special, and will not be a repeat visitor.

drank Apple Cinnamon by Harney & Sons
1538 tasting notes

Ordered this as a sample, as its nearly fall, and a little apple cinnamon tea could help make it colder, yes?
Yes? No? Drat.
It smells lovely, a perfect balance between cider and tea, but it brewed up much milder than its scent.
I wish it was more robust. It was pleasant enough, but not particularly flavorful.
In other news, my interview went well! She seemed to like me. There are more interviews to go, so we shall see!

Nichole

Woohoo! That’s good news!

Due to an very odd and somewhat distressing set of events last night, I did not sleep well at all.
This is a problem, as I have a job interview ish thing today- lunch with a lady who needs a personal assistant. So I want to make a good impression and not be a tired mess. Ugh.
Two things will help! Concealer (the wonder makeup), and tea.
Forget my sipdown attempts today- its all about the classic, beloved teas. May this delicious fruity cup lead me through the day triumphantly.

TeaNTees

Good luck! :)

Fjellrev

Best of luck and I hope your sleep deprivation won’t affect you too much!

Nichole

I’m sure you will impress and be fantastic! Good luck!

Good luck!

drank Apricot by Harney & Sons
1538 tasting notes

Three cheers for the sample pouches from Harney and Sons! I love that I can cheaply add a few very good sized samples of a tea I haven’t tried yet, and I’m mad for the sensible packaging. A resealable sample pouch? Count me in. Especially when the samples are generous enough for a few cups.
I’ve heard good things about this one, so was very eager to get my hands on it.
I’m enjoying this. Its a subtle fruity flavor, with a lovely aroma. I imagine this would be spectacular on a cool spring morning.
Its enjoyable now, too. I’m glad I have more to play around with.

ashmanra

I finally bought this one about a month ago. I love it!

After months of no tea buying, I finally snapped and ordered a ton of teas. Heh, eeek!
But I am optimistic, and wanted to get some of the autumnal flavors in, getting an early start on that, so I grabbed up some beloved fall flavors, and also a few classics.
And, in my cupboard, Paris is a classic. Its fruity, without being a fruit salad, and a seasonless flavor.
I am very happy to have it back in the cupboard! And now, on to yoga.

Tabby

So tempted to do the same. But I SWORE I would wait until October to do my fall/winter ordering.

Rosehips

You are strong! I gave in to temptation almost at once. Ah well….

gmathis

Must…stay…strong…waiting…until…I…get…the…scraps…drunk….up….!

Teatotaler

Paris is very good. Have you ever tried Harney’s Tower of London? Very similar except the vanilla is replaced by honey. Very yummy too.

Rosehips

I love Tower of London! I wish they sold it in smaller sizes in the leaf, though.

ashmanra

Rosehips – they used to sell most of their teas however you want if you call the store! I think you can call Soho or Millerton. I used to do it now and then.

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.
