Slightly upset stomach tonight, so mint tea is just the ticket. Also, no need to use up my very nice mint tea, so this basic but simple bagged tea will do.
Ooof, tomorrow will be long, so I need noncaf too, so I can sleep. Lets see how sucessful I am.

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

This was part of my DAVIDsTea haul from yesterday. The reviews were lackluster, but I am powerless in the face of a pastry flavored tea.
Hmm, its lighter and less rich than I would have really liked, but its not bad.
I think I steeped this a little light this time. I shall have to see what a longer steep will do.

drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons

For the last of this sample I’ve mixed it together with a spoonfull of Rose Scented, as I’ve heard advertised. I really like it, what a gentle and flavorful combination. Yum. This balances the sweetness of rose with the savoryness of this tea, but its not at all overpowering. Very good.
If I get more of the impressive Queen, I shall pair it with Rose Scented all time time.

Down to the end of Vanilla Black. I will be without this for a while, but not for forever, as its much too nice a cup of tea to let it go forever. It shall rejoin my cupboard soon enough. Maybe in the black friday sales!
But for now this mild cup of vanilla softness is a sipdown.

Er, I may have hit up a mall in a major city and gone to both DAVIDsTea and Lupicia, and come away with some tea. Oops.
Well, time to work on my sipdowns. This has one more pot left in it, which I may kill off tonight, if I’m feeling ambitious. This was a decent enough starter tea, but I’ve grown past it, and I am done. I wont get it again.
Edit- Sipdown!

My last pot of this tea, to help me write this morning as I get ready for a long day. If I do not do my Nanowrimo word count now, then I shall not get it done at all today, as a little trip is planned.
I never did manage to eek out the chocolate of this, which is a little disapointing. But I cannot be too mad, as the pumpkin spice quality of this tea is perfectly lovely.
Good bye, Chocolate Pumpkin Pie!
Sipdown.

Goodness, I’m low on this. How did I get to this point? I’ve only got about one more pot left! Eeep.
Having this as my pre writing tea, with a slice of cinnamon coffee cake, which is all very delicious. Omnom.
Good and relaxing. I’m meeting up with a Nanowrimo friend in a bit, and we’re going to do a write-a-thon.
A good start.

Five hours of sleep. Yay. And a very long day ahead of me.
Today I need serious tea. With that in mind, I reached for this sample of Queen Catherine, which I threw into my last Harney order.
Wow. This is a complex yet gentle black, which is doing its job and then some. I get notes of chocolate and honey in the quiet depths of this tea. Very nice.
I’ve got a scoop more of this. Next time, I’m going to combine it with rose scented, as I’ve heard is a lovely combo.

Licorice! I taste licorice. And a bit of honey and spices too.
All in all, not a bad blend. Even better as I got this cup for free, but I’m not going to buy any of it.
Gosh, the day has just gotten worse and worse, and I am very glad of a cup of tea to help me through the rest of it.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Oooh boy. Am I glad that this was what I picked to drink today. Its been nuts, and its not even 10 am yet.
My home computer is having seizures out of the blue, which makes me fear for my documents.
I get to work, and a long string of complicated crazy is dropped on me, and I am the only one in the office to deal with this.
Its days like this that I am exceptionally grateful that Boston Blend exists to make me happy.

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.
