drank White Christmas by Lupicia
1158 tasting notes

I really liked the mini tins from Lupicias holiday collection. Just enough tea in them to try the tea, and make up your mind, not enough to get bored with it.
The opinion on this is that its good, but I would not go out of my way for it. I find the blend of flavors to be a little puzzling, but its not undrinkable.
This is a sipdown! All te more nessisary, as I have some teas from Butiki coming in.

I generally like Christmas teas, maybe just because I like Christmas :) But what I really like is the charming packaging a lot of Christmas teas come in!

Agreed! And Lupicia had some lovely holiday teas.

I woke up with a headache, which sucks majorly. Bleh.
But! I had some of this, and feel much better.
I really don’t know how this tea can manage to taste “dusted” but it does. It tastes exactly like a custard with a faint dusting of nutmeg across the top. I always feel like I’m missing a spoon, when I have this, like I should be eating it out of a ramekin, not drinking it out of my largest tea cup.
So creamy! So rich! So, so very impressed.

Glad you’re feeling better!

Thanks! Headaches suck. Tea always helps, though.

Oh woe. This is a sipdown.
I have a lot of really lovely memories bound up in this, some really wonderful things. I’ll look back on this one with fondness.
The squash, the spices, and the crisp sugar, will live on in the cupboard of my mind! Thank you, Stacey, for this lovely tea.

drank Oh Canada! by DAVIDsTEA

Oh Ost you’ve spoiled me with all the lovely samples! I’m rich! My cupboard is huge!
I really, really hate to clean rooibos out of a strainer, but fortunately I have all these little paper pouches, to create my own “tea bags”, so that’s what I used to try this sample.
Its a bit woody, but its got an underlying creaminess that is quite pleasant. I smell the maple more than I taste it, but its still there.
And I have enough for another cup! Hurrah! I love new teas.

A very long Monday. So long, in fact, that I don’t even mind having a black tea in the evening. And anyway, its not so bad, right after dinner.
I must say that I did something to this tonight, I think understeeped it, which made it came out all watery and uninspired. Bleh.
Better luck next time!

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons

Oh, Monday. It sneaks up on me. So I need some good tea to get it in gear.
I really, really love autumnal flavors. They speak to me. And this is a very autumnal tea. Boston’s quieter little sister. Delightful and light.
Is it autumn yet?

drank Orange & Ginger by Lupicia

Backlog. I seem to be on a citrus tea kick, reaching for a lot of these lately.
This one is particularly good. I love a fruit/ginger combo, and this blend is almost like orange juice and tea. Makes me wonder what an actual orange ginger juice would taste like. Probably pretty good.

drank Berry Trifle by Tazo Tea
1158 tasting notes

So, the Tea Novices (boyfriend and roommate), have done what a lot of us did in our early tea days- that is, buying everything they could get their hands on. Ha! I remember those days. I still even have some of those teas! They are learning, however, what they like and don’t like, and a refining the collection.
This is one of those million things they picked up, and I am not a fan. Nope. This smells nice enough in the sachet, and I love a black tea/fruit blend. But this is bitter, watery, and just generally unpleasant.
However, the Novices seem to love it, so its good that it belongs to them, and not to me. I just will not accept a cup next time I’m here.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea
1158 tasting notes

So my newly converted tea friends (my boyfriend and his roommate, proud owners of their own tea station), really like this tea, so offered some to me.
I like citrus teas, and I was hoping that I’d like this more, but I think that Mighty Leaf may not be quite the company for me. The flavors seem a little…. light. Ah well.
I’ve got a bunch of backlogs from this weekend, so be prepared for some of that.

First cup of my morning was this. I can never quite decide what all the flavors are. Fruit? Baked goods? Some sort of apricot tart business? White chocolate? Not sure.
Still, enjoyed!

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.
