It was such a busy weekend! I wen’t to the local Shakespeare company production of Comedy of Errors, which was fun, and then spent the rest of the time indoors, whining about the heat.
Its very hot. Almost too hot for tea. Gah.
This was this mornings cup, but I’m drinking one now. I’m tired, and could use a delicious cup of wake up juice right now.
And I can sleep a bit longer tomorrow. That will be delightful.

My eyelids are practically glued shut. Argh. I hope this morning goes smoothly.
On to the tea! This is really good. Its smooth, and not at all bitter, with warm notes layered on top of each other.
I think that this will really come into its own when its the fall. But I’ll enjoy it until then.

Friday! Its Friday! Hurrah!
My house is having bizzare internet problems, so I’m sorry that posting has been spotty.
I don’t like summer. Its hot. Drink hot tea every morning, and it makes me very warm and uncomfortable. Bleh.
Bring me autumn at once!

I once took a cold shower and then cranked the a/c just so I could enjoy my tea more. Summer is pretty wretchedly hot here in North Carolina.

Five hours of sleep last night. Ugh. And a busy morning.
I had a cup of this to help me wake up. I prefer it in loose leaf, of course, but there is something to be said for having this in sachets as well. Even I cant screw it up, when I am barely awake.

Waho. Word count for the day is done, healthy dinner cooked, and a good book. What this day needs is a cup of tea.
I’ve never been much one for tea with milk, but I’ve been drinking a few (less than stellar) teas I have with milk, and now I’m curious? Do you guys drink Comoro with milk? I wonder….

gmathis

I think I have, and liked it.
(Word count done for the day…isn’t that a wonderful feeling to go to sleep on?)

caile

I have, but I put milk in most black teas.. I think this one is well suited for it though and reminds me of vanilla hot chocolate.

Rosehips

Vanilla hot chocolate? I’ve gotta to try this with milk, if it makes it like that! (and yes, word count done is glorious to sleep on)

So I picked some of this up from my local Whole Foods on a whim. It had been a while since I bought a new tea, and this one sounded summery and interesting. I had visions of a raspberry style creamsicle, and I like fruity black teas. Worth a shot, anyway!
This is an unusual blend. For starts, its super colorful. Lots of cornflower petals, bits of orange peel, and what look like Fruity Pebbles but must be the raspberries. Not a lot of actual tea, in comparison.
Brewed up, this has a strong flavor of herbs, and just a hint of a brighter fruit note, but not enough for me to tell if it was the raspberry or the orange.
Hmm. I’m not impressed by the first brewing. I’ve got a bit more (though not a great deal, thank goodness), so I can experiment a bit more.

Steepster! I have returned to you! My computer died a dramatic death on Saturday, so thank goodness I backed up my documents.
I now have a new computer, which is very shiny and somewhat intimidating, and I am happy to have returned to the internet.
So happy to be back to Steepster!

Jennkay

Good call on the backup! My computer is on its way out, so I’ve been a bit paranoid about backing things up.

Morning thrifting went very well, with the aquisition of a stripy shirt, some black flats, and a maroon colored scarf, along with a silver candle holder. No good tea cups, though. Oh well.
I’m working on my wordcount. Its not bad. I’ve got about 500 more to do today to meet my target, and then I should have time to work out, before heading off to the family BBQ. I do love a cookout. Everything is so tasty!
Alright, 500 words. Lets do this! Come on Paris, lets go.

You can do it! waves pom-poms of literary encouragement

gmathis

Wow! Where does one go to get literary encouragement pom-poms? I have a major writing deadline in a month and MILES to write before I get there!

For my fellow tea drinkers in the U.S. Happy 4th of July! I’m going to hunt down the best thrift store sales in the area, do my writing, and then go to visit my family and have the annual bbq.
And no work! Thats always a good thing.
Hopefully I shall have several cups of tea as well.

gmathis

Sounds lovely! You’ll have to report on your thrifty finds!

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.
