And tonight I’ve done something wrong with this. Its just not quite right. Hmm. Well, this is the way it goes with tea, isnt it? Where did my sugar sweet note go?
Hmmmmm. Pondering over this cup.

drank White Chocolate Frost by DAVIDsTEA

I was a little worried when I opened this. I was smelling something almost medicinal. But brewed up it lost that edge, and smelled magnificent!
Wow. Could this be any creamier? Its like a minty milkshake, in tea form. I had my doubts, but I’ve changed my mind. How fantastic!
I might stock up, before this tea goes the way of the dodo. This gets a stamp of approval.

12 days to Christmas. Theres a very funny song from the Musical She Loves Me about it being 12 days till Christmas, and the the madness from there.
So, time for more Holiday tea.
Yum. Its minty and creamy, and it has my vote of confidence. I do wonder what purpose the popcorn serves, other than charm and nostalgia. (Can one have nostalgia for something you’ve never done? I’ve never made a popcorn garland….)
The upshot is, I’m enjoying this. I want to try it back to back with Santa’s Secret to see what I think.

drank White Christmas by Harney & Sons

Aha! My last Black Friday-Cyber Monday sale came in, and a tin of this was among this. I was feeling extra festive, which is my only explanation, considering that I have mixed feelings about white teas. That and it was on sale.
Wow. I dont know what I was expecting, but I really like this. Its like spices and almond blended into cream. Hooray!
Glad I got some sipdowns in earlier today, as I’ve certainly caught back up in a hurry.

I’m still waiting on a couple of my orders…

This is the last cup of this. Still not superb, though I dont know if its personal taste or age of the tea. In any case, its a sipdown, and I have a cool tea tin to add to my collection.

drank Sugar and Spice by DAVIDsTEA
1021 tasting notes

Aha, the early shift is done, so I can take a break and brew up some tea.
Yum yum.
I was staring at the new flavors I havnt tried yet, but I picked this up instead. Its a cold morning, and this toasty tea would be good. And also it would be a sipdown, so that I could start chipping away at the damage done to my cupboard by the amazing amount of tea I have aquired.
This is a very pleasant tea, but not remarkable. I still wish it had just a hint more “sugar” in the “sugar and spice”. But its just the thing for today.
Sipdown!

drank Pure Mint by Twinings

My Thursday morning quick cup of tea.
For bagged, the mint comes through very well. It was an excelent accompaniment to toast with fig butter on it, which served as breakfast. I like a bagged tea first thing on a Thursday morning, as I am always in a hurry, and do not have the time to sit and sip away.

I’m so glad I figured this one out. I was so sad with it the first time through, but two bags makes it very nice indeed. A good warm cup of comfort.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons
1021 tasting notes

After an evening of fencing, after a long day hunched over a ledger, a person sometimes needs a comfortable woolly sweater and a cup of sweetness.
I love having Comoro back in my cupboard, in sachet form. I can just pop one in a mug, add water, and be rewarded with a nice cup of tea, to sit and read with. Just the thing!

JustJames

Wow, this brews up fast and strong, especially for a bagged tea.
Its still a very strong cup of tea, slightly bitter to my taste buds. I dont know if thats the tea itself, or if its the age of this particular tin of tea bags.
Only one more sachet left.

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.
