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!

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.

drank Candy Corn Black Tea by 52teas

Candy corn tea!
This is the perfect cup for Halloween, with actual candy corn in it!
But it brews up to be a honeyed cup of candy corn goodness. Perfection. Why isnt everyday Halloween?


reminds me of this song: Ministry – Everyday is Halloween: http://youtu.be/DXtX9u7_6F8

It is Halloween! My favorite holiday of them all. In a moment I need to put on my clothes, a costume today, and go to work.
But fist, a cup of tea!
Its my favorite day, so I’m only drinking tea I like. First up, this cup of autumnal goodness!


And your costume is…?


I’m a Downton Abby lady this year!

On a long day like today, accept no substitues. Only the best of the herbals for me tonight!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1015 tasting notes

Such a terrible Steepster person (Steepsterite? Steepie?), because, in this weather, I am constantly reaching for Boston. Its just so perfectly autumnal, and I’m going through it much faster than I would have expected too. I regret nothing, however, as its so very delicious.
I have sipdowns to do, and new teas to try, and all I want is this in my cup.
Well, next up a cup of meh.


What’s terrible about that? You have to drink what you enjoy! :)

drank Vanilla Orchid by DAVIDsTEA

Its been a while since I Ooolonged. So today its time to steep up a pot before an extra long work session.
I still like this. Its creamy, and I like creamy. But I’m not sure it inspires dizzying swoons of delight.
But a nice vanilla pot of tea before I have to go be productive, thats a very nice thing indeed.

I dont find this particularly interesting. I dont get any lush fruitiness, or any intensity of chocolate.
What this is not, however, is bad. Its a perfectly acceptable black tea, with slight hints of….. something…. but the base is more then its additions.
Also, I noticed as I was dishing this out this morning that the tin has a picture of an orange on the front. Erm, shouldent it be a pear? Pears are rarely orange, round, and looking distinctly like a citrus.

Its finally cold enough for me to wear tights! And a non summer hat! And a cape! So I have done all of those things, and stopped by the local Peets on my lunch break to get a cuppa.
This is what I came away with. You know how in coffee shops, when you ask for tea, you can sometimes see the wheels just grind to a halt, while the poor barista frantically thinks “tea? tea?! Do we serve that?!?!”. Well, I had such a barista today, who undoubtedly could have walked me fearlessly through the land of coffee beverages, but was less secure with tea. So to make it simple, I got this Earl Grey.
I’m not impressed. Its weak, and unmemorable, and even the often too bitter for me bergamot is noticeably lackluster. Oh well, was worth a shot.

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.
