So my health scare is a series of good news bad news. The good news, the doctors don’t think I’m in any danger for long term health consequences! The bad news is that I still have the infection, even after the first round of antibiotics. So I’m on a new course of treatment, and have to check in again in three more weeks. Eeek. I just hope it all gets over with soon.
So I’m trying to be extra nice to myself, and this was a good way to start this day.
Its very mild, very creamy, very nice indeed.

The weather reports tell me we’re going to have a major storm today. Well, I’ll be ready, I love rain!
So, because I love a theme, I grabbed for this.
It smells effervescent in the tin, light and fruity and fun. It brews up a bit heavier than it smells, but its still a good blend of fruit flavors. A touch of brightness on a winter morning.

Aaaaaand…….. its white tea. Just white tea. I don’t even smell chestnuts. What the heck, tea?
Ok, I’ve got more of this, so experimentation is required.

Oh I hope this one works out! I love chestnut.

Tea of the morning! It just sounded so interesting, cherries in sweet cream.
I most certainly get a sense of the cherries, but on this morning I found the sweet cream note to be more of a suggestion than an actual presence.
But the cherries blend well with the base, and I liked my cup of it!

I’ve been having computer problems this weekend, and have finally learned how addicted I am to the dratted computer. But I’m back! For unknown reasons things have started to work again. So here we are.
I love peppermint. I go a bit nuts this time of year, as I deeply, deeply love peppermint, and peppermint black teas make my heart sing. So when I saw this, I lept on it like some sort of pouncing cat.
The first thing I notice, when its brewed, its opaque! It looks like tea with milk already in it, which is an unexpected turn of affairs. Its probably the white chocolate in the blend, that creates that effect.
Its a very, very creamy cup, with a hint of vanilla and subtle mint to it. Its really nice. The mint is not as strong as in Santa’s Secret, but its still enjoyable.
I’m glad I got some of this to try!

Right now Santa’s Secret is my favorite David’s Tea.

Holy lumberjacks, but has this got maple in it. Not the candy sweet, sugared maple, but the proper stuff out of a tree. Its rich and thick tasting, and not at all a frivolous, light flavor.
I get mostly this dark maple and bergamot out of this blend. I really have to focus hard to taste the tea base, and I can’t pin down the vanilla aspect.
I’m going to have to drink this more to get my rating, but its certainly a fascinating blend.

This morning I just wanted something soothingly familiar, so I reached for this.
It was sweet, cozy, and just really nice on this cold morning.
Perfect.

The newest tea to be brought to the office, to be aggressively drunk until it is gone, is this guy.
This tea is so disappointing! It smells so wonderful, and it tastes so bland. Come on, where is my apple cider tea at?
I tried double bagging it today, and it, or the lenth I let it brew, made it all rather sour, which is unfortunate.
I shall try to drink a great deal of it, and then never bring it back!

Wouldn’t be practical at work, but with a little orange or cranberry juice & cinnamon for Christmas punch?

Thought I would kill this one off today. It just never really floated my metaphorical boat, and I’m not really sorry to see it go.
Sipdown!

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.
