Yum. Really what else can I say? This is so, so good. A good tea for when I need to unwind, but as its black tea, it will still pep me up a bit.
Yum, yum, yum.

Minty. I am pleased by how well the mint cuts through this black tea. Its good for a bagged cup of tea.


Twinings never disappoints!

I was apparently not paying any attention, as when I was scooping out this tea I said “raisins!”
Turns out that its currants, not raisins. Still yummy. I am not familer with apple pie, so my question is, are currants frequently an ingredient in apple pie?
As usual, a tosty and tasty cup.


Hmm, I’ve never heard of or seen currants in apple pie, but it sounds pretty tasty!


Yeah, thats what I was thinking. Never heard of it, but it sounded pretty good.


I think some French apple pie recipes call for currants. It sounds like a yummy tea, too!

I woke up with a headache today, and so this is my cup before I go to work. Mellow, soothing, and uncomplicated. A good tea for this.

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 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.
