drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Its been a long and busy Monday. It was a bit rough in patches, but now I’m at home, and home is a good place!
I’ve got a cup of this, which is mellow and warm right now, and my knitting. And I’ve got my wordcount done, but the Nanowrimo site is crashing every time I update. Sounds a bit familer.

Daylight savings time is throwing me for a loop. But at least its a loop where I get to sleep in a bit more.
We have entered that time in the year where I still feel “fall”, but the teas coming out are “winter”, but I shall stick with my more autumnal flavors right now.
Still, not going to stop me from looking at, and possibly ordering, some new winter teas!

Much to do today, and running a bit behind schedule. That’s ok! I can do it.
Lunch was yogurt, honey, and pumpkin bread, along with a pot of this tea. It was a wonderful meal.
I’ve got writing and exercising to do today, so I’d better hop to it!

drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia

So I have a lot of thoughts about chocolate teas. I’m not opposed to the idea, as I love chocolate, but I’ve never found one that I really like.
This is dark, smooth, and smells richly of coco. Its quite impressive, like a rich dark chocolate.
That said, I sill can’t quite shake my mixed feelings on chocolate tea. Even when they blend well, I’m not convinced it works.
Still, this tea is a fun experience, and I do not regret trying it. I might even give it another whirl, sometime, to see if I can refine my thoughts.
But for now, this is a sample sipdown!

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons

Its November! That means the first day of Nanowrimo. Expect, dear friends in tea, to see lots of references to “writer juice” (aka tea), complaints about the word count, and the occational harassed, somewhat frantic rantings of a deranged writer.
At least I have some tea!
This seemed like just the right thing to act as the first tea of November. It will be the first of many!
Who else is doing a Nanowrimo project? I know that theres a discussion board, but is there anyone else lurking out there with a novel hidden inside them?


Writer juice. Love it! (Will be needing a bundle of that this month, too. Not NaNo’ing, but a wagonload of freelancing deadlines!)


If my health wasn’t so bad I’d be doing NaNo too. But since I can’t, I’ll be on the side lines cheering you guys on! :P Good luck!!:D

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA

This was my tea of last night, while I made dinner (a pizza, with the ingredients arranged to look like a jack-o-lantern, and pumpkin bread,) and handing out candy to the cute trick or treaters. I love trick-or-treaters, as I love costumes!
My boyfriend thought I was a hoot, as I excitedly ran up to the door every time I heard a little kid coming up to my door. What can I say, I love Halloween!
This was appropriate for the season, and its quite enjoyable, but I’m happy with it being seasonal.


I run to the door too! Haha! The kids are so cute! Plus, we have a long hallway from the family room to the front door.


Same here, actually! My front door is pretty far away from the living area. Ha.


Our poor fairies and princesses had to wear their winter coats last night! First hard freeze of the year; not great weather for sleeveless chiffon tutus :)

Halloween! This is Halloween! Hooray!
If you could not tell, I love Halloween. Its my favorite holiday, to be sure. I can’t wait to see all the costumes.
So this was the only tea to start my day. Its gorgeous , a delicate blend of squash flavors, creaminess, and also a crisp sugar note. A perfect start to Halloween!


Happy Halloween! I should have had pumpkin tea- doh!

Butiki Teas

Happy Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday too! :)

This is one I’d long been eying, and after seeing the news for Butiki, I swept in and grabbed some. Appropriate for the season, I thought.
Its alright. There is a mellow warmth and earthy toasty note, and I do detect squash, but I’m not particularly getting pumpkin.
I’m glad I’ve got a bit of this, as I’m interested in playing around with it a bit more.

First batch of errands and things to do have been done. Wahoo!
Time for a cup of tea and a snack.
Snack is an English muffin with pumpkin brother, and a cup of this is the logical accompaniment.
Ah, I like this. If you focus, you can get a hint of crust swimming around in the tea, and the warmth of a fresh out of the oven pie. Its the perfect companion to my muffin.

Oh cruel alarm! Dragging this poor body into wakefulness. I do not approve!
So much to do today, I’ll be moving quite briskly through the day.
A serious tea, is therefore required, to drink this.
Kandy is a strong black, but not an obnoxious black. Good and strong, but subtle and easy to drink as well. I approve.

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.
