Todays steeping has made is more strawberry-like than chocolate-ish. Not a bad turn of events. Its proving to be a light and pleasant cup for my second cuppa this morning.

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

The last pot of this was a little under-leafed, and so a little watery.
Salted Caramel, you have frustrated me to the very end. I am not sorry that this is a sipdown!
So close to black Friday goal, so close.

Today was not a good day at work. I bumbled and felt stupid, and made mistakes.
Tea! And a cup of chocolate-ish tea as well. A much healthier alternitave than to eating a chocolate bar, which is what I want to do.

Am I insane? (actually, dont answer that). Am I the only one who gets no chocolate out of this?
I like it, I mean its well blended and light and interesting, but its not chocolatty to me.
Hmm. Mysteries at this hour of the morning….

I’ve got a work training this afternoon (on a Sunday! Boo!) and I doubt there will be tea.
I’m making up for yesterdays lack of tea with tea I really like. This is a good follow up to Boston, as its got a simalar flavor profile. What is it about almond that seems to very autumnal.

Yesterday was great fun, but I had absolutly no tea (horrors) and so today I am celebrating my return to my tea pot with this cup of almond autumnal deliciousness. Yay!

I am sitting here on pins and needles waiting for my Harney order to arrive. I have plenty of this one, but some other beloved blends are gone!

drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve been drinking this a lot lately, but its starting to feel a little desperate. I am not overtly impressed with Salted Caramel, unfortunatly. I keep thinking that, with the right combo of time, water temprature, teapot, atmosphiric pressure, planet alignment, ancient chanting, and blind luck, and this will turn into the salted caramel candy in a cup I had been so hoping for.
Nope, not this time either.
Excuse me, I need to go find the sacred tea pot of K’a Ixspuchel, which is said to brew the perfect cup of tea every time (except on every second Wednesday), and try again….

I have caramel vanilla assam, and it is magnificent. I’ll have to try that oolong! It looks wonderful. Thank you for the suggestion!

Stephanie

The oolong tastes straight up like creme brulee. SO GOOD! They do sell generous sample packs!

JustJames

the caramel vanilla is THE ONLY caramel i have ever been ablr to detect in tea. it’s quite beautiful… and just that much more decadent with brown sugar mixed in.

Stephanie

Have you tried the oolong JustJames?

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas
881 tasting notes

I set out on this cup with some trepidation. I love candy corn. Love love love candy corn. Its great. I want it all the time. Nom!
So, a candy corn flavored tea was an unresistable temptation, and I gladly got myself a little packet of it.
Its good! The honey flavor is subtle and sweet, and the additons of actual candy corns is amazing. I’m certainly having a cup of this on Halloween!

drank Grapefruit Green by Lupicia

I do love the Lupicia newsletter, sending me samples of things that I would never order. I suppose thats the point of the samples.
This is fresh and almost juicy. Readers of my reviews might notice a theme- green tea is not my thing. I try, but its just not what grabs me out there in tea-land.
That said, this is pretty good!

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.
