drank Cherry Blossom by Tea Time

I’ve been eyeing my cupboard, and Its time to sip down a few of the samples I have.
My sister gave me this ages ago, wit steep time and temps, but not what it is…..
Its it green? It looks like a green tea to me. However Steepster thinks its a rooibos? Hmmm.
Well, whatever it is, I’m not particularly impressed with it. Its not a strong flavor (and I do think it is a green. Maybe? It does not look like a rooibos). (maybe I have the wrong listing?)
In any case, Not impressed. Glad that this sample is now sipped down.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I like seasonality. Like, Iove fall flavors, but fall is the best time for them. And this holds true for teas as well.
Now, I’ve got most of November to drink this tea, but I’m going to work on sipping down the pumpkin and other “autumnal” teas in my cupboard. Likewise, I don’t feel like I should start the winter teas until at least after Thanksgiving.
But, on this lovely autumn day, this tea is perfect.
I like this chai, but I don’t love it. Still, its dependable.

I have doubled the tea bags for this, however I also doubled the size of my mug, so that could have an effect. Heh.
This is not quite actual cider, but I’m enjoying it as a autumn herbal. Pleasant enough for my purposes!
I may or may not have bought 4 new books today. Ha! I love books, and gulp them down nearly as fast as I gulp tea. So I’m sure these won’t be unread books for long (and several are books that I am desperate to read).
My only regret is that I have an actual life to live, which cuts into the ol reading time.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

Mornings are hard. My bed was so soft and warm! It was a glorious place. Alas, I must go into the real world.
On the plus side, the real world has oatmeal with brown sugar and tea.
This tea is amazingly mellow. That’s not a criticism, I think any more intense would not be good. Its warming, gentle, and with a hint of bright citrus. A good thing to get me out of bed in the morning.


I guess the real world isn’t so bad after all. :)

But. But. Warm snuggly blankets and sheets.

drank Vanilla Comoro by Harney & Sons

Its been a long and busy Monday. It was a bit rough in patches, but now I’m at home, and home is a good place!
I’ve got a cup of this, which is mellow and warm right now, and my knitting. And I’ve got my wordcount done, but the Nanowrimo site is crashing every time I update. Sounds a bit familer.

Daylight savings time is throwing me for a loop. But at least its a loop where I get to sleep in a bit more.
We have entered that time in the year where I still feel “fall”, but the teas coming out are “winter”, but I shall stick with my more autumnal flavors right now.
Still, not going to stop me from looking at, and possibly ordering, some new winter teas!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

Much to do today, and running a bit behind schedule. That’s ok! I can do it.
Lunch was yogurt, honey, and pumpkin bread, along with a pot of this tea. It was a wonderful meal.
I’ve got writing and exercising to do today, so I’d better hop to it!

drank The au Chocolat by Lupicia
1597 tasting notes

So I have a lot of thoughts about chocolate teas. I’m not opposed to the idea, as I love chocolate, but I’ve never found one that I really like.
This is dark, smooth, and smells richly of coco. Its quite impressive, like a rich dark chocolate.
That said, I sill can’t quite shake my mixed feelings on chocolate tea. Even when they blend well, I’m not convinced it works.
Still, this tea is a fun experience, and I do not regret trying it. I might even give it another whirl, sometime, to see if I can refine my thoughts.
But for now, this is a sample sipdown!

drank Cranberry Autumn by Harney & Sons

Its November! That means the first day of Nanowrimo. Expect, dear friends in tea, to see lots of references to “writer juice” (aka tea), complaints about the word count, and the occational harassed, somewhat frantic rantings of a deranged writer.
At least I have some tea!
This seemed like just the right thing to act as the first tea of November. It will be the first of many!
Who else is doing a Nanowrimo project? I know that theres a discussion board, but is there anyone else lurking out there with a novel hidden inside them?


Writer juice. Love it! (Will be needing a bundle of that this month, too. Not NaNo’ing, but a wagonload of freelancing deadlines!)


If my health wasn’t so bad I’d be doing NaNo too. But since I can’t, I’ll be on the side lines cheering you guys on! :P Good luck!!:D

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
1597 tasting notes

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 :)

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.
