Tea! But I’m still not really feeling up to the very good teas, so I am reaching for this.
Its a perfectly reasonable tea, but nothing amazing.
Still, there are nights when nothing amazing if a fine thing.

Spicy and bright today. Yet another tea that I seem to have one cups quantity left. Damn! Come on tea, lets sip down.
This is nice, though I doubt I shall buy it again.

Another endless batch of tea, though I think I’m one pot from the end.
This S&V tea at least does what is advertised, but I wont be looking back when its done.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

My significant other made me a cup of this last night. Trying to sooth my throat.
My cough is much better, but I have injured my side, so any coughing is agony.
Wahoo.
Well, Comoro is always welcome.

:( Vanilla good, but I hope your cough goes away! snuggles

My last tea pot worth of filtered water went into this pot. For my next act, more water.
Ah, the Tower. I’ve been thinking about the Tower of London, the place, as I’ve been watching a documentary about Richard the Third, who is a favorite historical figure.
And its all grey and rainy, and this tea seems to suit this tea.
My best friend send me a “get well” care package, including a few new teacups, one of which I am using to sip this lovely blend.

Flavors: Stonefruits

What a nice caring friend you have, enjoy your new cups :-)

Am almost through with this.
I was, unfortunatly, correct yesterday, when I said I’d only get one cup of tea. I did only get one cup of tea. Bleh.
Today, I am almost out of filtered water, and have injured my ribs from coughing. Well, time to call up the boyfriend for water delivery, so I can have tea!!!
This mornings breakfast was an english muffin with local honey, for which this was an excelent pairing.
Almost done, I’ve only got a cup or so left. But, hey. More tea is always forthcoming, and I’m eager to try more vanilla teas. Anyone have good recomendations?

Flavors: Vanilla

Angrboda, AKA ‘Dr. Vanilla’ is who you need to talk to.

Sil

yep..angrboda has gone through a number of vanilla teas. I’ve had a few as well, but nothing has blown my mind..yet, though i did like the one angrboda sent me…but not readily available to us here in canuck land :)

Anna

I’m obsessed with vanilla, but I tend to prefer it mixed with other flavours, or, if on its own, in a green tea. I own just one single straight-up vanilla tea. (But probably 95% of my favourite cupboard teas contain some vanilla notes.)

Sami Kelsh

My favourite vanilla tea is actually Adagio’s vanilla green, which is weird because I tend to gravitate more to black teas than green teas in the first place, but man, that tea’s got good vanilla-ness.

But oh man, I feel your pain on the whole cough thing :( I hope your ribs feel better soon!

Anna

Sami – okay, adding Adagio’s vanilla green to my shopping list. =)

This may be my only cup of tea today. Horrors.
Well, I’d better make it count.

sherapop

Only one cup???? Impossible!!!! ;-)

Rosehips

I know! It is not acceptable. I probably wont accept it.

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons
901 tasting notes

The cough is much better. Still present, but much, much reduced, and now the coughing seems to be accomplishing something.
The downside is that I seem to have pulled a muscle in my side from all the coughing. Hurts like the dickens.
Oh well.
Fruits d’Alsace. A divided topic on Steepster. I like it more than many others do, which is just fine.
Fruity and mild. Its pretty good.

gmathis

Do you have a nice warm cat to serve as a heating pad on the muscle? ;)
If not, towels fresh out of the dryer feel lovely, too.

pyarkaaloo

this tea sounds delicious. on the H&S website, it is described as “Paris on steroids”… do u find this in any way similar to Paris?

Rosehips

Simalar, but I find Paris to be more “steroid-y” than Alsace.

pyarkaaloo

ha! thanks for the tip…

I think I understeeped this today. Its not quite what it normally is.
Hmm.
Well, I shall drink it, though. Its off to my (thankfully short) job this morning, and then, who knows.

Its raining, I’m coughing, and I need tea, damn it.
Enter Peets. I love Peets, because the person behind the counter never gets “the look” when I ask for tea.
You know “the look”. The one where, when one orders tea from a hot beverage emporium, the poor soul gets that look in their eyes of “tea? Tea?! Do we even serve that? What goes in tea? I hope they dont ask about teas!”
I try not to go to those places. Partially because the beverages are just so expensive, and partially because the tea is almost never any good.
Not at Peets. And today, the guy there was the best Tea Guy, the one who is happily recommending things for you to try.
Today, though, its rainy and I’m still not entirely well, and peppermint tea sounded like just the thing. And it is.
The thing about peppermint tea- I dont notice when its good peppermint tea. I just drink it and go “ahh”. Not in a “write-a-sonnet” kind of way, just a vauge background pleasantness. I only notice if its bad.
This is not a bad peppermint tea. Its lovely. Sigh.

TeaBrat

I’ll have to try their peppermint soon!

Jennkay

I once asked at a cafe what kind of tea they had, and the cashier looked at me like “what?” and responded “black or green,” sigh.

__Morgana__

LOL write a sonnet kind of way. Feel better soon! (I’m starting to worry—it’s been a while since you started coughing—do you maybe need antibiotics? Can I be presumptuous enough to encourage you to go to the doctor if you haven’t already?)

Rosehips

Morgana, thank you. I am also becoming a bit concerned. I will be calling my doctor upon monday, when they are open again. Thank you for checking up on me. Steepster people are the best.

Bio

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.
