Another bittersweet sipdown from this morning.
I will have you again, Marco Polo. You are too magnificent not to get again. Someday, when I am very, very good indeed.
Until we meet again.


if you get desperate we can always do a swap sometime. I have a bunch left.


Oh, me too. When it comes to Marco Polo, I am very swap-minded.


Fab! I may take you guys up on it in the future.

Its time. Time for Sipdown!
Its gone (sniff), my dancy, light, lovely tea is gone now.
I dont know if I shall ever have it again, as its not easily accessable to me, but it was wonderful while I had it.
Goodbye, Loke Lani!


Awww. Many sads.

I still think this is a really nice pie blend, but I still dont taste any of the chocolate!
Next time I’m going to do a back to back brewing of this and Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie, to see if I detect a diffrence.

This is a sipdown.
Its a light and delightful darjeeling, and makes for a very refreshing afternoon tea. I should have had some buttered toast with this.
This is very good. Its gone for now, but it may find its way back to me soon enough!

Good lord its windy. I feel as if I may be whisked off to Oz at any given moment, which would be a good adventure, but is very hard on ones hairdo.
I have a little midmorning break, and so I have cut myself a slice of cinnamon coffee cake, and have brewed up this.
I’ve said before that this is a wooly sweater tea, and it really is. A sophisticated blend of caramel and vanilla, and just perfection on this blustery day. I’ve been saving it for just such weather. Next rainstorm will be good for this too!
Its funny how we associate teas with weather, isnt it?


It really is. I associate tea with so many things: for example, there are teas I have that I refuse to drink at work because they are far, far too beautiful to be consumed when I’m in any other state than a purely blissful one. And then winter teas. And spring ones. etc.

Thursday mornings are hard, and I have to get up extra early, stumbling around, gasping for tea and crying at the injustice of a world that would make me get up that early.
So my mental facilities are used up in all this A.M. angst, so I often go for bagged teas. Its good to have one or two on hand, when needed.
This is my go to. Its sweet, and nicely balanced, and I dont need to focus too much on it, which is good.

Two teabags and a very long steep is the secret to this. Not in the relm of Kiss my Lips, of course, but, under these perameters, its a decent enough tea.
My ongoing quest for good caffine free, dessert style teas continues. This will do for now.

This is such a nice blend. I have one cup left, but I shall be where I can buy it very soon. Yay tea!!!

Today has dawned bright and clear, so I feel I can hazard a more springy flavored tea.
I might actually shed a tear when this is gone. I dont know when/if I shall ever get this again, as its a Hawaiian exclusive.
It tastes like summer in a cup, light and sparkily on the tounge. Yum.
One more pot left of this.

Got a sample of this in the mail today, and rather than add it to my cupboard, I’ve decided it will be my noncaf tea of the evening.
It actually smells good, like gooey caramels. And the smell of the steeped up tea is just the same.
It sips a little flatter than that, unfortunatly, but it smells lovely. All in all, a perfectly nice red tea.

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.
