Ah yes, the last pot of this sweet tea. It was a lovely addition to my October, with its honey sweetness and actual candy corn! I hope it comes back next year!
Sipdown!

I’m a believer in seasonality. I dont always, but mostly I try to eat things in season, partially because they’re fresher at that time, and partially because it just feel right.
That said, I dont eat candy corn, though I dearly love it, much past Halloween. I have enough of this tasty blend for one more pot, which I may finish up today.
But November is filled with flavor delights as well!

Its back in stock at Peets! So I got a cup of it during my lunchbreak, along with a new tin of the stuff. Its still “autumn” in my tea drinking mind, but I cannot help myself with this. I really like Winter Solstice, and had images of going back when I felt a little more “winter” only to find it all gone. And theres a lot in a tin, so it will last plenty long.
Happy sigh. Its been a long Monday (and its only midday), but not a horrid one. And with this on hand, I feel a bit more ready for the rest of the day, including my Nanowrimo word count.
The usual goodness, spicy and warm with a hint of citrus.

Yay for daylight savings time! I’m awake in the light.
Its going to be a windy, cold and bright day. This may be my only cup of tea, so my desire for good tea won out over my need to sip down some meh blends that I have.
Glug glug.
I do love this. Its sweetish and mellow and lovely. Hopefully it will tide me well over for the day.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I over leafed this, but it was the end of my packet, and I figured why not. It did not noticably alter the flavors, so thats good.
This was my afternoon pot of tea to help with the writing I needed to do. (Still some writing left, though. Drat! Onwards I go in that arena.)
This makes a Sipdown. I might get an ounce or so again next year, but it is just as nice to have it all sipped down.

Am I alone in thinking this tastes like licorish? Hmmm.
A little weak to be a chai. Oh well, it was a free sample, and it was tasty, if weak.

I need a pot of tea for some writing (2000 words a day, every day! Eeep), and this is what I grabbed. It suits the autumnal quality of the day, and is a mild enough tea that I can focus on writing while I drink it.
Now, if only I had some inspiration!

Today is day two of Nanowrimo, plus work, plus errands, plus lots of stuff. I need a gorgeous cup. This is it.
I cannot stop saying how lovely this is, though no one ever listens. Its gorgeous, this tea. Just gorgeous. Warm, with a hint of smoke and a lovely undercurrent of caramel and vanilla, its a treasure of a tea. Perfect for when you have two thousand words to write and no time to do it in. Eeeps!

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Oh lord, its time to wake up and its still dark out. I can see the moon!
I stumbled around the kitchen, blindly stumbling into things until I grabbed the kettle. This was the first tea to fall under my fingertips, and I am so, so happy to have it.

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.
