I had a lovely pot of this in the morning. Its warm and the hint of citrus just uplift it, and keep it from being too heavy and dark.
Its lovely in these colder months, and as it was a rainy morning, it was glorious then.

This was awfully sweet this afternoon. Sheesh.
Nothing exactly wrong with it, just too sweet.

I don’t know why I’ve been letting my few remaining Butiki teas sit ignored on my shelf. I’ve been seeing others lament that they’ve waited too long, and I don’t want that, so its time to drink these guys.
And, with this, I may have waited a bit too long for perfection.
To be fair, its not bad, but the brandy has taken over this blend, forcing the plum to the side and the cheesecake all the way out.
Ah well.

Sunday! Ahh, a deep and appreciative breath for Sunday.
I thought this would be the perfect tea for this morning, my last pot of this delicious blend.
I shall miss this. I’ve never seen that David’s does much in the way of bringing back previous teas, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this to make a triumphant return.

This one is one of my very favourites of the year. I suspect it’ll be back.

Today this made me feel somewhat ill. Hmm, that’s not a good sign.

Oh no. :(

I’d forgotten I had some of this still! It was a delightful surprise this Friday morning, let me tell you. I am glad I had a little time away from it, though, as it was delicious, a happy accident.

I have a little of that left. It is one of my favorite Christmas teas.

This is one of the teas I’ve brought along with me to work. I like something without caffeine in the afternoon, and this has been sitting sadly on my shelf, forgotten and woe begotten for too long. Time to get it drunk!
I get the chamomile, that’s for sure, but do I get saffron? I’m not sure. I might be imagining that this is a touch more savory, but I don’t know that it isn’t just my mind playing tricks on me.
In any case it did just fine by me this afternoon.

I’m officially a sucker for Smith Tea Mint blends. I snagged one of the limited edition (I think?) boxes of this, as I can never say no to their peppermint blends. They’ve made some of my very favorites, which is saying something, as I love mint tea.
First brew up makes me say that this feel “real.” Like it smells like someone has freshly picked some mint and herbs and brewed it in an earthenware pot, and set it down in front of me.
Theres mint, and something sweeter, but also a earthy undertaste, which gives way to a very sweet aftertaste.
I’m glad I’m a sucker, as I like this!

It was this for my pot of tea this morning.
I hardly know what else to say to it, with me waxing rhapsodic almost every other day.
But I can’t let it go past unremarked upon. Its a lovely blend!

I don’t know what it is about this week, but there hasn’t been a night where I have slept well, without a nightmare about work. Sheesh.
So I’ve been brewing strong tea, but also not anything that is particularly interesting. This may change tomorrow. Maybe I’ll brew up something lovely tomorrow instead of this, which is serviceable, but not special.

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.
