This smells magnificent in the tin. Citrus and ginger, yum.
I think, brewed, that this one might be a touch fiddly, as I’ve got a bitter under taste today. I may have the mess around with the brew times.
But, bitterness aside, its a really nice combination of flavors, and I like it. Its fresh and zippy, excellent for a cold morning like today.

drank White Christmas by Lupicia

I’m not quite sure what I think about this. The flavors are interesting, and taken one at a time I enjoy them. But I’m not quite convinced about the blend of all of them. Its a little mis matchy to me. Hmm.
I’m really satisfied with the amount I have of this. I have a few more sachets, but not enough to completely frustrate me, if I don’t really like it.
I’ve been saying that more experimentation is needed for a lot of teas, but its totally true. I need to play around a bit more.

So creamy and delicious!
I still have lots of holiday teas and, of course, they will be joyfully drunk, but I thought that perhaps a different set of flavors might be worth while.
Today I do the thrift store Boxing Day sales. Always a good time!

drank Celebration Tea by Harney & Sons

Time for one last cup of tea before I pop off to my parents house for Christmas lunch and presents! (I confess to being excited about that. I love presents).
This isn’t a classic holiday flavor, being light and fruity, but I can’t fault it, as I do love a nice light and fruity blend. Good stuff.
Off I pop!

This year, there was no decision at all on what would be the tea on Christmas morning. This is what it was, this is what I wanted, so this is what I had!
I had fun. My boyfriend, who is at his familys house out of state, skyped me, and so I was “there” as they opened stockings and chatted. I got to sit and chat with them, drinking tea, and relaxing.
I’ll go to my own family later this afternoon, and chill out with all of them.
For those having a holiday today, I hope its great!

This has become, hands down, the favorite non caff version of the winter. Delicious. Creamy. Rich. It feels like extra dessert, which is brilliant.
Whatever Midwinter holiday you celebrate, if you celebrate one, may it be a happy one.

For all of you who celebrate it, have a lovely Christmas Eve!
I’m off to work, but I’ve got a moment to savor this tea.
Its a perfect for Christmas eve, mellowed with vanilla, but peppy with the mint. Lovely. A good way to start the day!

Smells like Nog. Does not taste like Nog. Oh well. Its totally drinkable, so that’s alright.

Backlogged from last night.
I am told that White Tea is a highly caffeinated beverage, so I should perhaps not had it before bed. But maybe I made it all up, as I slept pretty well.
I don’t think I’ve had this since last Christmas, which is a shame, as its a very smooth cup. Its creamy, with a touch of warm spice to it. Very nice.

I’m very confused with how caffeinated teas are…seriously seems like everyone has a different opinion. I’ve heard it has tons of caffeine, but also heard that it doesn’t have a lot, and it’s mainly only silver needle that has caffeine. I’m just confused. xD

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.
