drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

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.)

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

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 :)

Fair enough!

drank Honeycrisp Apple by DAVIDsTEA

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!

drank Capri by Harney & Sons
1630 tasting notes

I get a day off work today, which I am super excited about. I’ve got a lot done on various personal projects today, which is a great thing.
I’m so close to feeling 100% human again, but I’m still choosing my gentlest teas, and this one meets the bill.
Capri is one of the most comforting teas I own. Its one of the “cozy sweater” teas, which is always so much fun. And perfect for a cold, lazy morning like today.

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA

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.

Fjellrev

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!

Fjellrev

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

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.
