drank Pure Mint by Twinings

My last cup of this. I shall savor it.
When I first got this, I was very curious. Black tea? Understood. Mint? Sure. But together? I was curious and a bit suspicious about the whole arrangement.
The verdict is that I like it quite a bit. While not at all chocolaty, it reminds me of a mint chocolate. The mint is there, a presence, but it does not overpower the base, instead existing with it in harmony.
I’ve enjoyed my time with this tea.
Sipdown!

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

The bad news is that my swollen, painful lips continues, and are now cracked and bleeding as well. Bleh.
The good news is that is it raining! Rain! I’m so excited. I love the rain.
I had to break out the Paris for this, though everything hurts to pass my lips. Sheesh.

It was raining in SF last night. We definitely need the rain!

My favorite chamomile has got to be this. Is delicate, with a somewhat creamy finish, and a delicate breath of light… floral is not right, but theres something very fresh about it.
Why didn’t I drink this more during the summer? It would have suited very well…. but it will be a gorgeous cup of springtime some winter evening.

I woke up this morning with cracked and swollen lips, slightly puffy eyes, and totally annoyed sinuses. I think I’m having some allergies. Bleh.
Well, hopefully I can get something to help with that soon. Bleh.

drank Ginger Tea by Harney & Sons

Ginger! I love ginger. Bring me all the ginger.
My throat is a bit sore today, so I’m ready for a soothing cup of hot tea.
This is technically not tea, but I’m not bothered by that. This is ginger in tea form. Yum.

Its fall! Officially fall! Wahoo!
I love fall, its my favorite season, and I’m ready for all the autumn flavors. Yum.
I steeped this too little today, and its a touch… soapy? Boo! Come back, vanilla almond!

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Its been too long a day when you cant even remember what tea you drank this morning. That’s absurd. I’ve been wracking my brain!
I’m in a tea rut, I think. I love Comero, but I’ve got other decaf teas, so why am I not drinking them? I should do that. Right after I finished this cup.

When I drink Comoro I feel like I’m being bad for drinking a dessert-y black tea so late, but then I actually get to sleep. Win!

Friday! Gosh, I’ve been ready for Friday since Monday.
I’m almost out of this, and I’ll feel slightly sad to see it go. Basic, but tasty. Perfect for those mornings that I don’t know what I want.

What is this? Overcast? Slightly damp? Could there be rain today?! I hope so.
Theres nothing explicitly “summer” about this tea, but somehow I feel like its a warmer weather tea, rather than a cooler one.
I’m making a list of the autumn teas I’m going to order. I cant wait. Its time for pumpkin tea!

I have fenced for the evening, which was good exercise. There are two ways to be during fencing, you are either the pin or the pincushion. Today I was the pin more than I was the cushion, which is an excellent way to be.
Cup of tea as a reward. This is a nobrainer. I’m always in the mood for vanilla, so this is a dependable and enjoyable cup.

I love this one too! It’s like having dessert. :)

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.
