Cup of the morning. A beautiful, rainy day. This blend of caramel, vanilla, and rich assam seemed like just the right blend of things to have today.
I love this weather, cold, wet, the world softly blue. Perfect for tea and soup and books.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

I love Vanilla Comoro. Its rich, its decadant, its decaf! I really like this creamy treat.
That said, I’m not going to get any more of it for right now. Its easy enough for me to get now, Target has it in sachets, but I’ve got plenty of non caf teas right now, and I should drink those, rather than replenishing this.
It will return to my cupboard someday, but for now I have other things to drink. But for now, sipdown!

drank White Chocolate by Butiki Teas

I think I need to add more leaf to my basket next time. I feel I didn’t manage to coax out the full flavors of this today.
I can detect cream, and the hint of something floral twisting around in the flavors, but not as much white chocolate as I want. StIll, I can feel the potential. I will play with this some more.

Butiki Teas

We have heard the floral thing a few times. I think that is just the white chocolate flavoring.

I’m actually making phenominal time on this 1lb bag of tea. I was afraid, but the dent I’ve made is sizable.
This was my breakfast cup, and a glorious thing it was, too. I felt, at first, that maybe a more “winter” tea was appropriate for the first day of December, but then I took a breath of almond and cranberry goodness, and decided, nah, I’ll just drink what I want when I want to drink it!

Backlogged from last night. I had this in celebration of completing Nanowrimo!
My boyfriend had broken into my tin the night before, loved it, and given me a sip.
“Its like actual peppermint bark!” he said, “so creamy!”
And so it was. Light, soft, creamy and delicious. So it was a good celebration cup to have as well. I really like this. I picked it up out of sheer curiosity, but I’m gonna maybe pick up a spare tin, at least to give to my boyfriend, as he loves it too. Just a lovely holiday style tea.
Also! Now that Nanowrimo is over, I officially consider it alright to drink “holiday” teas. Bring on the peppermint, the figgy puddings, the hints of pine!

Congrats on completing Nanowrimo!

Tea of last night.
Boyfriend and I had a date, going to Big Hero Six and then went to the local bbq joint. It was fun, and delicious. I really liked the movie, and I love BBQ.
We went over to my house, to chat and drink tea. He had a new one of mine, that I have not tried yet, but had a sip of of, and a tasting note will follow once I have had my own cup. And I had this.
As always, rich, vanilla-y, decadant. A lovely treat of a dessert tea.

Oolongs! I really want to try more oolongs. They’re so interesting, so different. Such interesting flavors can happen with them.
Ost sent me this, which was lovely, as I wanted to try it.
Its light, with a faint sugar note laced through it. Mellow, pale, and very good. It was a good accompaniment to the rain that we’re having right now. I like oolongs as afternoon teas.
Thanks to Ost for this sample!

It’s interesting, isn’t it? You’d think with “sugar caramel” in the name, it would taste like Sugar Babies…much more delicate than that.

Ost

Wish it had tasted more like Sugar Babies…that would be amazing!!

Kittenna

I also wished this one was sweeter :(

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Two more days in Nanowrimo! Eeek!
I’m on track, but I’m gonna have to do some serious writing today. We’ve reached the hard part of the story, the one where I really don’t know how it ends. Eeesh. I love writing, but its hard work!
I’m determined to be sipping down samples, and this is a good way to start doing that. Sipping down the small amounts, and the “autumn” teas.
I honestly don’t know If I’ll get more of this next year. I’ve got pumpkin teas I like better. I’ve got pumpkin teas that have more pumpkin in them. We’ll see in a year, I suppose.
Sipdown! By bye, pumpkin chai.

I put in, well, a couple of Black Friday orders. Heh, oops. I’m excited, but I can always feel the slightly frantic feel of a lot of teas in my cupboard, which always motivates some sipping.
Theres only a couple of cups of this warm and tasty tea left in my tin. I’ll get it sipped down soon, I hope.

Ost

where did you order from?

Rosehips

Della Terra, Harney & Sons, Lupicia, Stephen Smith!

Ost

Nice!!

Tea of the morning.
I don’t go in for Black Friday sales in a traditional way. What I like is the thrift store black Friday sales (half off thrift store clothes) , and then some craft fair shopping.
And, of course, the tea sales. I have a few orders coming in, I must admit. Heh!
Quick and easy tea this morning, as I headed out on my way.

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.
