I had a lovely weekend out of town, to one of my favorite places, but this does mean I’m behind on my tea drinking.
This was what I brewed up this morning, and I’m afraid I under steeped it. It was still good, but not rich and creamy.
Honestly, you miss one day and you have to relearn the delicate art of steeping. Ah well.

drank Mint Rose by Zhena's Gypsy Tea

I was in a tea rut. The things in my cupboard were all starting to look too familer, so I’ve got myself some new teas, to help refresh my palate.
I like mint tea. I like teas with rose in. Its loose leaf, and it came with a little jar with a cute wooden spoon attached. Sold.
Verdict? Not bad. Very minty, but the rose is still a presence. Its not overpowering, and I’m enjoying.
Excelent. Lovely to have a new tea to try.

I just noticed that this is my Friday tea. A little treat to push me through the last workday of the week.
I played host to my parents this morning, whose shower is broken, so came to use mine this morning. Not a problem, I had some tea and a book and a quiet moment.
Really glad of that cuppa. This morning is already quite busy, and its not even 9 yet. Its gonna be a very full work day.
I cant wait for the weekend.

The Lupicia fruit elves have struck again. How do they get that meltingly ripe flavor in a cup of tea? In the smell of the tea? Its sheer magic. Amazingly fruity. An excellent summer green.

Wow this is delicious.
I needed a relaxing tea for the afternoon, and something light, to combat the heat.
This wonderful cup of melon juiciness is just what the doctor ordered. I’ve put it in my favorite, delicately green tea cup, and I am going to take a few minutes to relax.

Cup of the morning. This is a very dependable tea, perfect for a morning like today.
My coworkers for the morning shift were almost all gone, only me and one other, and she had to leave early, so it was crazy.
Glad to have a solid tea to help me through.

I should go to bed early tonight, as I did not sleep well last night, and I have an early day tomorrow.
So noncaff is called for.
This is decent, for a summer tea, but I when I am done I shall never get more of this, I think.

My cup of the morning. This arrived with my latest order, and while I dont actively seek out Earl Greys, I wont say no if I get it for free!
Harney, to me, is a very quiet and dignified company, and their blends are quiet and dignified as well.
This is a very good Earl. Smooth, and fragrant. My boyfriend thought it smelled floral, which I can sorta see.
I don’t think I’ll get a tin of this, but it’s nice to have every once in a while.

This was my gift from by boyfriend, and what a sweet gesture.
This is an interesting combo. The mix of blacks, the earl grey, and the jasmine, floating through the flavors. A chameleon tea, one moment I taste jasmine, one earl grey, and the next a blend of the grouping.
Not going to be a favorite, I think, but actually quite nice. A decent floral black.

Its grey and raining! That is very weird. That does not happen in the summer here. However, we desperately need it, so I cant complain too much.
A slower morning. Its time to have a rich pot of tea and some hot toast. Yum, hot toast.
This weather is making me dream about fall weather. I cant wait.

Ooo, on Sunday we had hot toast with a spread made from 1T honey mixed with 1T coconut oil. So yummy! Simple pleasures…

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.
