I’m writing my Thanksgiving cards tonight. (Yes, I’m the sort of person who likes to send cards for everything, hence Thanksgiving cards), and sipping on this tonight. I baked a very nice pumpkin spice cake, which turned out well, and a slice of it with this cake is very nice indeed.

We started the Thanksgiving card tradition years ago, chiefly to alleviate the December “gotta-do” stress…but what better time to send a good word to friends you’re thankful for? (Actually, it’s kinda evolved into non-seasonally-specific-cards-that-friends-get-sometime-between-Halloween-and-New-Year.)

Gah. I like to get my Nanowrimo writing done as early in the day as I can. Admittedly, during the working day, this is after work, but on the weekends, I usually do it in the mornings.
Drat. Today got away from me, so now I’m working on the wordcount for today. Whew.
This cup to help me along. Easy, uncompliated, nourishing.

I’m a morning writer, too…hard to start anything past noonish.

Sample sipdown.
I confess, I am not much one for breakfast blends, but I must admit that this was very nice. Even the teas I dont like from H&S, I can tell are good teas.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

This morning I stood before my cupboard and pondered. What kind of tea did I want today? Something toasty? Something fruity? Something minty?
Naw, today I reached for Paris, that classic cup of loveliness.
Long day ahead, but I’m sure I can manage it all. And I’ll have plenty of tea to help!
I love how tea is both a coping mechanism and a reward, all in one. :)

That’s such a great way to describe tea. <3

I have melancholy tonight, for no real reason. So, I am having this sweet tea, even though its after dinner and caffeinated. I need some chocolate in my evening. Maybe that will help.
And I have an evening with my comfy chair and some books, so all will be well.

Sounds relaxing. I hope it does the trick!

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

I surprised myself by grabbing this one this morning. Its cold and windy, and I usually go for something that tastes warm to me, but I found myself with this instead.
Hmmm.
This is a lovely, fruity concoction, and very good, even if it is a cold morning.

Warming teas are the order of the day.
This is very subtle, especially for a cinnamon tea, which can so often explode with flavor. This is mellow and nice. And, of course, sparkily!

drank Sugar and Spice by DAVIDsTEA

A pot of this, along with some cinnamon twistie cookies, proves to be a good writing snack this morning. Its also amazingly cold and windy, and a nice warm pot of tea is just the ticket.

Ah, when I saw this in the grocery store I could not resist its call. I got this last year, when I had first moved into my house, and its smell brought me right back to those days of the house with too little furniture and nothing on the walls.
I like it. I get almond, not coconut out of it, and almond is one of my favorites.
I have a soft spot for this.

I almost bought a tin of this the other day. I haven’t tried it, but it sounds tasty!

Bio

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.
