drank Celebration Tea by Harney & Sons

Thursday mornings are my days when I need a tea in a tea bag, so I always keep some on hand.
Today I am getting the hint of pastry that is promised by the tin. Huh, I wonder what I did…..

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Tea o’ the morning here. Rich, with a hint of almond and a waft of cranberry. One of my favorites, for sure. And a great choice for this busy day, as it turns out.
Its great to have failsafe teas.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA

Drunk this last night, when I was so tired that I could write a note.
Its creamy, but I’m not getting all the maple that was promised. Its there, its just not overly strong.
Many, many thanks to Ost for giving me this. I’ve been wanting to try it for ages.

I’m glad that Ost has sent me a couple of these tea bags, as I have not yet formed a complete opinion. I should know better than to try a new tea on a busy morning, but I apparently never learn.
I can tell you that this is very rich and sweet, a touch of plum, a dollop of vanilla. It does feel somewhat pudding-y, and it was a hearty first cup of tea of the day.
I’ll give it an actual rating after the next cup, though.

drank Chocolate Mint by Harney & Sons
1599 tasting notes

Another tea at the boyfriends house, which is lovely, as it lets me cheat, and drink new teas, without breaking the ban!
Did you know that the Harney Tins have “effects” listed on them? This one says it sweetens me and my loved ones. Ha! Cute. Now I need to go read all the rest.
I’m not the worlds biggest fan of chocolate teas, but a chocolate mint isn’t bad at all. I won’t be bringing this into my own cupboard, I think, but it will be nice to have every once in a while, as a guest tea.

drank Pumpkin Spice Chai by Tazo

At the boyfriends today, trying to play Don’t Starve Together, which is proving a challenge. But I have tea from his well stocked tea bar!
This is actually really good. Creamy, lush feeling. I’m liking it. When I’m allowed to buy teas again, then I might get some of this.
As it stands, though, I need to be on a buying hiatus for a while, in any case.

Backlogged from yesterday-
Of course on the last day of Butiki teas, I had to drink one of their blends. And this seemed like such a soft, dreamlike way to toast that wonderful creator, Stacy, and all her teas.
Cheers, Butiki! You brought us a lot of joy.

I am almost done with this. Eeep! And then I must wait a long time before it returns to me. Ah well.
Perfect start to Friday, rich, pepperminty, with the smooth vanilla taste. So good.

drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia

Its fun to revist a tea. I haven’t had this in ages, what is my opinion? Has it changed?
This smells fantastically chocolatish, rich, liqurey. Very good. I enjoy it!
Thanks to Ost who I believe is the one who shipped this out to me.

drank Caribe by Harney & Sons

Today in tea drinking, our friend Rosehips begins to panic slightly about the size of her cupboard, and the fact that more teas will be arriving soon. So lets join her as she works her way through various samples.
Harney & Sons really, really want me to like this, as this is the third sachet I’ve got from them of this. Its not the blend for me. I’m not major on tropical flavors, and this just misses the mark for me.
Oh well. Its gone, and I can breath that much easier. Sheesh, Still so much tea to drink!

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.
