This was my tea of last night, while I made dinner (a pizza, with the ingredients arranged to look like a jack-o-lantern, and pumpkin bread,) and handing out candy to the cute trick or treaters. I love trick-or-treaters, as I love costumes!
My boyfriend thought I was a hoot, as I excitedly ran up to the door every time I heard a little kid coming up to my door. What can I say, I love Halloween!
This was appropriate for the season, and its quite enjoyable, but I’m happy with it being seasonal.


I run to the door too! Haha! The kids are so cute! Plus, we have a long hallway from the family room to the front door.


Same here, actually! My front door is pretty far away from the living area. Ha.


Our poor fairies and princesses had to wear their winter coats last night! First hard freeze of the year; not great weather for sleeveless chiffon tutus :)

Halloween! This is Halloween! Hooray!
If you could not tell, I love Halloween. Its my favorite holiday, to be sure. I can’t wait to see all the costumes.
So this was the only tea to start my day. Its gorgeous , a delicate blend of squash flavors, creaminess, and also a crisp sugar note. A perfect start to Halloween!


Happy Halloween! I should have had pumpkin tea- doh!

Butiki Teas

Happy Halloween! It’s my favorite holiday too! :)

This is one I’d long been eying, and after seeing the news for Butiki, I swept in and grabbed some. Appropriate for the season, I thought.
Its alright. There is a mellow warmth and earthy toasty note, and I do detect squash, but I’m not particularly getting pumpkin.
I’m glad I’ve got a bit of this, as I’m interested in playing around with it a bit more.

First batch of errands and things to do have been done. Wahoo!
Time for a cup of tea and a snack.
Snack is an English muffin with pumpkin brother, and a cup of this is the logical accompaniment.
Ah, I like this. If you focus, you can get a hint of crust swimming around in the tea, and the warmth of a fresh out of the oven pie. Its the perfect companion to my muffin.

Oh cruel alarm! Dragging this poor body into wakefulness. I do not approve!
So much to do today, I’ll be moving quite briskly through the day.
A serious tea, is therefore required, to drink this.
Kandy is a strong black, but not an obnoxious black. Good and strong, but subtle and easy to drink as well. I approve.

Ahh, a long day, and a rewarding cup of tea.
This tea has got a really strong memory for me. When I was first moving into my house, before everything got set up properly, and I was without internet, this was one of the teas I had. I’d drink a cup every night, listening to my new house, and imagining my pictures on the wall, and making lists of the stuff I’d need.
So the cup of this is taking me back to that quiet time.

This mornings breakfast was oatmeal with brown sugar, and this tea. Its glorious, feeling like an autumnal hug, a cozy sweater, and excellent start to the day.
That said, next time I’ll do a bit longer steep, as this came out just a touch weaker than usual. I don’t think I timed it properly.

I saw Ost had been drinking this, and it sounded too good to resist.
I’ve been writing Halloween cards all evening (yep, I write Halloween cards). I’ve written about 20! I didn’t know I had so many friends, ha.
This tea is a good letter writing companion.


Good for you! We started doing Thanksgiving cards years ago…when you correspond once a year, what difference does four weeks make and what more appropriate time to tell friends you are grateful for them? Although these days, I make cards, so I string ‘em along from Halloween to New Year’s, and just cut-and-paste the appropriate pretties on the front :)

drank Pumpkin Patch by DAVIDsTEA

Its Halloweek, so the fall teas, especially the pumpkin ones, are in super high demand. Well, around my house, anyway.
This is slightly nutty today. Or maybe that’s just me? (heh)
This is pleasant, but not overwhelmingly good. That’s my opinion, anyway.


Halloweek! Haven’t heard that one before-I like it though! Hehe ^^

And I said to myself, “its autumn. Why not try that apple cider tea you bought?” And so I did.
It smells fantastic, ooey, gooey apple goodness. Cider with a pinch of something extra.
It does not taste quite as it good as it smells, but its alright. I think I’ll be able to manage it.


Cinnamon stick…?

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.
