Nope. Sorry. I tried, but this is just not for me. I will reserve rating it, as it is so intensly not my thing.

This has been on my wishlist for a while, so I was delighted when JustJames sent me this.
I’ve had orange spice teas before, and I realy like them. But I’d never tried anything like this before.
It tastes like one of those chocolate oranges, though the chocolate is almost subconcious. If I focus, I cant taste the chocolate, but if I relax, the chocolate orange just waves over me. Delicious.
Well, this has decided it. I’m going to keep this on my to-order list. Yum.


what a beautiful line! sub-conscious chocolate… so glad you enjoyed it =0)

A coworker gave me a gift today, a huge mug patterned with tea pots and some vanilla rooibos tea. So I am breaking out the mug to brew a double batch of this. I have such a lot of tea, that, at the moment, I am going to chip away at the sipdownable quantities of tea.
And this is a nice afternoon cup of tea.
How sweet! I love that coworker, she’s my fav. How very kind of her.

I remembered only as I was steeping this sample sachet, that I had planned to keep this till New Years Morning. Ah well, I have lots of other wonderful teas to drink then.
I am dragging today, and have to finish wrapping gifts, and also go to a party tonight. So I need energy, and this beautiful tea is the way to do it. I need another tin of this….


Lupicia is a company I have yet to explore—I just added this to my shopping list!


keychange – apparently cookie from lupicia is really good


I can concur, cookie is good. I like Lupicia, nice teas.

drank Santa's Secret by DAVIDsTEA

Very simalar to Christmas tradition, but without the slight savory note. Still, I like it.
Its a good thing this is not a competition, as I would fail it right out. I cant decide!

What I like about this, is that is not just all peppermint sweetness. Of course, I love some peppermint sweetness, but this has a lovely balancing note of savory. Is that the popcorn?
The upshot is that this is a winner in my book. I might compare it to Santas Secret later today. I feel like they are simaler, and I want to try a back to back taste test.

Curse you early morning! You ripped me cruelly from an awesome dream about Shakespeare and suchlike. It was awesome, and unfortunate to have been pulled away from it.
Thats the sad thing about dreams, is that I never have them again. I dont have repeat. Curses, I wanted to see how this one ended.
Well, a cup of sweetness to soften the blow and ease me into my day.

Ughghgh, I hate when that happens. I’m a deep dreamer, & my dream life is my ‘other’ life, the stuff of of songwriting & strange story telling.
Oh well, there’s always another night to sleep, perchance to dream… ;)

I cannot believe its a week to christmas. Eeep. But I’m in pretty good shape, which is nice.
Time for the annual reading of Hogfather! And this is an excelent tea to accompany Terry Pratchett.

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.
