Sunday is lovely. Its the only day of the week that is completely off for me. (Unless I take on some Freelance, which I do sometimes….), but today its just relaxing and calm. I’ve got a lazy day scheduled. Theres a book to read, a farewell party for an old roommate tonight, and perhaps a craft fair to attend. That sounds like just the right sort of Sunday.

That sounds like an awesome Sunday! Sundays for me end up being chore days, but maybe I’ll fit in some time to read my book (with tea, of course). ;)

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Backlogged from last night. I had a quiet night, reading the tea mystery (Which I am reading for the tea, not for the mystery. I actually do read mysteries, but this is obviously a “cozy” which is more about atmosphere than crime. Which is fine, I need that every once in a while).
I finished my huge bag of this. However I already have a new tin of it. I like having Comoro around. Its a good standby.

drank Nutty Almond Cream by Tiesta Tea

I am spending my evening with a murder mystery (this particular book is called Death by Darjeeling, and I confess I picked it up because its set in a tea shop), and I needed a cup of tea to go along with it. Possibly several, quite frankly.
This is a great “I’m not paying attention” tea. I can steeping for an unspecified time, and its fine. I can be absorbed in the story and it does not demand a lot of attention. Its very good for that.

Shadowfall

Lol. I tried to get into that series awhile ago and never could, despite the major tea influence in it. Just not that big into mysteries. Though I’ve been considering giving it another shot.

I love this tea, even though it’s one of the strangest concepts ever… There’s no actual tea in it! But it is delicious. And the longer you let it steep, the better it tastes.

Rosehips

I swear, everyone makes a version of this, but I enjoy it too.

I’ve read most; the Tea Shop mysteries that are in the first half of the series are better. (Later in the series, the lovely tea descriptions start falling off and the dialogue/plots get pretty improbable. I hate not liking a book!)

I have five if the books and forced myself to read three, no more. But I have made a lot of the recipes in the back, and they were the best part!

I swear there must be vanilla in here. This is just so creamy. It seems impossible to believe that there is no flavoring in this.
I don’t get a lot of the lemon or fig today, just a rich and lovely creamy cup of tea. That’s lovely.

drank Citrus Blend by Harney & Sons
1318 tasting notes

This is, without a doubt, my least favorite time of the year. I drunk this tea this morning, sweating slightly (very ladylike, I know), and frequently having to put the cup down to cool off between sips.
I’ve never been an iced tea drinker, but I may have to start. Its going to be 100 degrees or higher all week long.

Ok, I don’t think this has any tea in it. It tastes herbal, and a medicinal herbal at that. I can barely see the leaf in it, for all the giant red things (that I assume are freeze dried raspberries, but they look like fruitiy pebbles.)
Blerhg. Not impressed at all.

I found this at Target, and was so impressed with loose leaf at a major retailer that I had to grab a pouch.
Are there companies that don’t make this tea? Tevanna, DavidsTea, I swear everyone makes this nut tea that turns hot pink. This is Oh So Nuts, just in different packaging.
Well, that’s ok. It could be worse, I must say.I do like this tea, it makes for an uncomplicated evening cup. I just find it amusing that it is everywhere.

drank Tokio by Lupicia
1318 tasting notes

This was a Lupicia sample, and it seemed like a flavored green would be just the thing now.
In the sachet this smells amazing. Completely sweet, like candy, like….. melon gum? It smells fantastic.
Brewed it tones down a bit ,but its quite a lovely fruity green.
I’m in the final stretch of Camp Nanowrimo. About a thousand words to go before I hit 50k. This thing is going to need so much revision, though! Gah. But I’ve got two days to do it in, so that’s good.
Lets get typing!

Does anyone else do the New Tea Dance? I get very excited every time I open up a new tin, and do a tiny little dance, which is mostly me just moving side to side with a little bop thrown in every few steps, and I try to open the tin. (No tea spillage today! Cue more dancing!)
I’m very used to flavored teas, which greet you with a stronger smell, but this isn’t a flavored tea, so I really need to take a deep breath to get any aroma. It actually smells a little like cream, or vanilla. And its got the little flicks of lemon and fig in it.
Its got that Harney black base, which is not spectacular, but serves as a good backdrop for other flavors.
I like it. I don’t love it, but I like it. Its very gentle, with a sweet earthiness to it. Generally a comfortable cup of tea. Nothing even slightly bitter. Its got a rich and creamy mouthfeel, and leaves me feeling warm and content.
I think that I might feel this one more in the Autumn. It seems like a fall flavor.

Flavors: Fig, Lemon

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.
