drank Yume by Lupicia
964 tasting notes

How am I going through my teas so very quickly? How have I managed that? Gah! This is my last pot of Yume until I can get myself to a Lupicia and get more tea.
How my world has changed! When I started on Steepster, I had about 20 teas, which I considered excessive. Now, even though I’m actively trying to control my numbers, I still have double that now. Its funny how, now, I stare at the tea in my kitchen, saying to myself “I have nothing to drink!” Ha.
Yume is a delightful spring cup, creamy and strawberry like. I enjoy it very much indeed. But this is the end of this tin. I’ve just been breezing through the Lupicia teas this year.

I’ve done it! I’ve finished up 50k for Camp Nanowrimo! A day ahead of schedule! Whee!
I have decided to celebrate with this cup of sweet and spicy tea.
I am very pleased with myself, though now I need to face the grim reality of revisions. Whew.

Two days of writing left to do, and around 5k words. Gah. Excuse me, I need to get typing.
This is a failsafe tea. I have never really got this one wrong. And its just the pot of tea to get me going.


This is just a great tea. Good luck with the writing!

drank La Vanille by Lupicia

Nope! What happened here? Nope is all I can say. Last time I tried it it was faintly vanilla-y, if weak and somehwat blah.
This is a cup of bitter, bitter tea, with no vanilla and no hope of redemption. What did I do here? Argh.

drank Rose Scented by Harney & Sons

Tea of the morning today.
I’m beginng to pale on this. Its still the softest, most delicate rose tea that I’ve ever owned, but I dont think it ages very well. Still, its a very nice tea. I dont think I’ve experienced the Harney & Sons tea that I have not found very good.
After I’ve done this tin, I’ll take a little break, I think.

drank Rose Darjeeling by Lupicia

My town hosts the local Scottish Games every year, and, as a proud Scotswoman, I don the family tartan and go. Its A great deal of fun. There is British Food, men throwing heavy objects in skirts (the men, not the objects), and all the bagpipes you could ever want. I love that stuff.
Its quite an afternoon, and I had a lot of fun, but was gasping for a cup of tea when I got home. Well, I dont have any thistle tea, so I figured an English Rose tea was the closest thing.
Its good! And it will help power my last spurt of writing for today. I need it. I’ve got 3k words to write today. Whew. Off I go!

Yay, its Saturday! Yay!
Well, I do have work this morning, but then it should be fun.
I am out of Paris. Out! Excuse me while I wobble in an unstable way. I’m out of Paris! Not for long, thats for sure.

I think I said this in my last review, but I really should just get some of this to have at home. Its raining, I have a free cup of tea card, and I almost always get this juicy blend.
It was good this afternoon. Its Friday (hooray!) and I have fun dinner plans (hooray!) but it seems like the afternoon is going to drag. (boo!)
Well, tea helps! Onward, to conquer Friday!

Its raining! Yay! We are going to have precious little of this, I’m told, until the end of the year. I will savor every drop, as rain is some of my favorite weather.
This tea is good with absolutly everything. Sunshine? The honey and fruit is a lovely combo. Frozen winter? There is something warm and sunshiny about it. In the rain? A supurb tea for rain.
Its going to be a long day, I think, but hopefully productive and good.


And it’s cold, too! (Cold rain.)

drank Mojito Mint by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

Hmm. Not sure what I was expecting with this. Something more citrusy? But I like it! Its a green tea with mint, and, as it cools, indeed a bit of citrus. I am always timid around green teas, but I’ve got help with this one. Mint and lemon is a lovely combo, and help introduce this green and myself. Maybe we can be friends!
I feel like this review took a turn for the weird. Now back to your regularly schduled steepster.

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.
