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.

drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons

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.

I am on a sipdown spree.
I dont regret buying or drinking this tea, but its in no way memorable. I will probably let it slip from my mind compleatly, with only Steepster as evidence that it ever graced my cupboard.

i was wondering how this one tasted…was looking at it the other day

Cavocorax

This was one of the first teas I tried! I bought a truffle pack from Mightly Leaf Tea bc I could get it at a discount from a coworker. I agree that it wasn’t memorable (aside from remembering I had it), but it makes me wonder if I should checkk out some of Mighty Leaf’s other offerings…

Sipdown! Wahoo!
Sipping on the last of this while I work on todays Nanowrimo word count. A good way to kill this off. Goodbye, Peppermint cuppa chocolate.

I’ve never thought of myself as an apple pie eater. Its something I could take or leave, as I felt like it.
So my enjoyment of this comes as a bit of a surprise to me. Its very good! Gooey and warm and just like a cup of pastry. I’ll go for that anytime.
Maybe I need to rethink my stance on actual apple pie?

drank Pure Mint by Twinings

My habit on a Thursday morning is to drink a bagged tea first thing, as I’m always in a hurry on Thursday morning. I am going to be returning to home and my teapots in a few hours, so I will drink more tea later.
This is the mornings cuppa. Its pretty nice for a bagged tea.

My dratted sinuses are acting up again. Time for a hot cup of unexceptional tea to sooth them.

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

Today is a DAVIDsTea sipdown day, which is not intentional, but isnt a bad thing at all.
This starts by tasting greener, and it becomes more creamy as it cools, and the vanilla flavor is really allowed to come into its own. This is so dense that it reminds me of vanilla yougurt, especially with the oolong green-ness, which is like vanilla greek yougurt.
Theres no urgency to this, but I might get some more of this at some point. But for today, its a sipdown!

When you wrote about it starting off “green” flavored and coming into it’s own as it cools, those were my exact impressions and I am new to tea so I really thought I’d done something wrong when I saw how dense it was! I have not had one dense like that yet so I was pretty surprised at the mass of green in my tea-maker lol. I also feel the same way about it..decent enough but not enough to make me “crave” it by any stretch. I’ll use up what little I have but can’t see myself buying this again.

Rosehips

Glad to see that I’m not alone in this impression! Thats what I love about Steepster, its a shared group of impressions. Its quite an unexpected tea.

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.
