I have had a long day, and still have to go stab people (nobody panic, I’m a fencer. No blood!) so I am fortifying myself with a cup of this sweet nectar.
I am almost out! Horrors! How did I get to this point? Well, it wont stay gone from my cupboard for very long.

Fjellrev

Awesome that you fence! I always wanted to do that.

Anna

Hey, fellow fencer, hey.

This is so fresh. Its like a salad in liquid form, with a well rounded greenness to it. I might hunt this down sometime, as its very nice.
Thanks for Fuzzy_Peachkin for letting me try this.

Sipdown! I think I will restock this eventually, but its not urgent.
This is the most sophisticated rose tea I own. Not my favorite, mind you, but so very sophisticated.
Whittling down the cupboard one sip at a time.

I am cheating with this. (can one cheat at tea?) A tea bag suggests a single serving of tea, but I’ve crammed a bunch into one of my tea pots and brewed it up that way. I was also hoping that the concentration of tea would improve the flavor.
Nope. Drat.
Well, down the hatch anway!
Edit- SIPDOWN!

LOL!!!!!

Fjellrev

Haha oh geez. It’s sure fun to sit there guzzling tea you don’t even like just to get rid of it.

Second cup of my morning was this delcious blend. This is one of my teas for all seasons. In just about any weather, at any time of year, if someone suggests a cup of Tower of London, I will certainly say yes, and drink it up with great pleasure.
I have this in sachets, but next time I’ll get it loose leaf.

Cavocorax

I bought the tagalong because they were out of the loose leaf, but I didn’t mind. The sachets are really good!

Rosehips

Agreed. I will probably get some sachets too, as they allow really fast tea, when I need to rush. And loose leaf only comes in a really big size….

drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères

This tea is magnificent. Beyond every expectation for sure, transendant, and just so, so delicious.
My sister gave me a little bit of this several months ago for my birthday, and I’ve been greedily hording it. Well, enough of that! Tea is for drinking! I still have enough for a small cup, when I will enjoy on a lovely day, and then, one day when I have been very good indeed, I wil order a full size of this for myself.

JustJames

what a lovely sister.

Rosehips

I’m fond of her. A fellow tea sibling!

Its…. green tea! I was promised fruit, but all I got was this watery green tea. Oh well.

Oofph, it was a long slog today. So a reward of this lovely almond and cranberry blend was in order. This smells so perfectly autumnal to me. Sip sip sip.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

This tea, when I opened it to scoop some out, struck me with its beauty, The little gold bits make it very lovely. And, when it brews up, it sparkles in the cup! How fun is that?
The description of this is absolutly spot on “the slow suggestion of cinnamon”. I had expected a very strong flavor, but this is a very gentle flavor instead. Not a bad thing at all. This is mild and warm, and is yet another tea that I might keep a hold of until the winter time for full potency.

Continued celebration of my mothers birthday by drinking all the pumpkin teas.
I got this as a sample from ROT, so it will be a sample sipdown as well.
This tastes like pumpkin pie spice, which is exactly what it is billed as, isnt it? Its got a decent underlying pumpkin quality which is good. Pie like, and good.

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.
