Early morning glug. Come on tea, do your stuff!
Its going to be a long day, when I just want to sit and read my book all day. Oh well, gotta go earn the money to buy the books! And tea!

Veronica

Books and tea… I can’t think of a better way to spend money!

Post fencing cuppa. Ah, vanilla tea. Hit the spot perfectly tonight.
Everyone else got to see rainbows today, but somehow I missed them. Oh well, still got the rain!

I woke up to rain. Yay rain! My favorite weather, I must say. Pefect for finishing off this tea.
I opened up the tin to find that inconvienent amount, just a little too much for one serving, just a little to little for two. So I decided to overleaf the pot, and have myself a sipdown.
The note of clear, bright citrus cutting through the warm spice is what makes this one of my favorite winter blends. And this is the last of it until the winter. A bittersweet sipdown.

i miss the rain in vancouver….

Cavocorax

Me too! I always wore flip-flops which meant I might slip out of them, but I like the feel of the rain, and splashing around!

Sil

I ate too much at dinner, and am compleatly stuffed. But, I decided that I wanted something sweet still, so this was my solution.
Something just a little artificial lurking at the back of this sip. And not quite as good as Forever Nuts.
I think the name is a wrong. I dont get caramel or almond in this cup.

Today I wanted a sipdown. So I decided to have one. Bye bye, Violet Rose Tea.
This kills the Simpson and Vail teas I got back on Black Friday. They were cheap, which is by far the best thing.
Nothing was undrinkable, but I just wasnt impressed, so I dont think I’ll be ordering again.

Fjellrev

I’ve arrived at the same conclusion. :/

Yesterday it was in the 80’s, and today its grey and rainy. Good, perfect tea drinking weather.
I was hoping for a few more of these days, so that the flavor of the tea matches the weather.
Winter Solstice is my favorite of those winter spiced orange teas. Glorious. Not the right flavor for warm weather, so I’m glad I get to have it now.

I didnt want anything overly nice this morning. Do you ever have those mornings, when really, its just an unexceptional cup of tea that you want? They’re rare, but its a good time to drink something you are only meh on.
I will say that this is better than a lot of the teas that I got from S&V, but I still find it underwhelming.
Well, it was an interesting tea experiement, I suppose.

I have absolutely 100% had mornings when I just want a cup of meh tea. It’s funny how that happens.

TheTeaFairy

Ditto, I also have a meh tea tin section on my cabinet that I need to go to every now and then. Tea that requires no fuss, that doesn’t require any effort on my part and offers no surprises!

Sami Kelsh

Yep, I totally have meh tea days. I don’t know why, but it’s true.

gmathis

No-brainer, no-fuss teas are essential at my house.

Rosehips

Whew! I am glad to hear I am not alone.

drank Rose Darjeeling by Lupicia

Sunday. In a perfect world I would have the day to sit and read and drink tea. So thats what I’m going to do!
Reading a cozy murder mystery set in an English Great House, and this seemed like the right tea to have with it. Something very English about this. The rose, perhaps?

Veronica

Ooh, this sounds lovely. On to my shopping list it goes.

Sami Kelsh

This sounds super English. I’m totally intrigued by the combination!

drank Marie-Antoinette by Nina's Paris

What an interesting combination in this tea. Rose and apple. Huh.
A light steep is key here. Its mildly and pleasantly perfumy with a two to three minute steep, but it gets to be a little much if you go much longer than that. Good to know.
Its a very refreshing cup. I think this will probably be very good in the summertime, when refreshing is the watch word.

gmathis

I really liked this one. Bet it’s good iced—the sample I tried was very small, so couldn’t hold any back for warm-weather experimentation.

drank Milk Caramel by Lupicia
886 tasting notes

A new tea to try, and did I pay proper attention to steep time or temp? No! I was useless in the proper study of this tea.
I am not sure how much caramel I’m getting out of this. I do get a sweet and creamy cup of green tea, with roasty toasty undertones, but not so much caramel.
Still, this will be an enjoyable pot this afternoon.

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.
