Ginger! I do love Gingerbread. And this has got plenty of quality ginger flavor. Huzzah!

Very simalar to Christmas tradition, but without the slight savory note. Still, I like it.
Its a good thing this is not a competition, as I would fail it right out. I cant decide!

What I like about this, is that is not just all peppermint sweetness. Of course, I love some peppermint sweetness, but this has a lovely balancing note of savory. Is that the popcorn?
The upshot is that this is a winner in my book. I might compare it to Santas Secret later today. I feel like they are simaler, and I want to try a back to back taste test.

Curse you early morning! You ripped me cruelly from an awesome dream about Shakespeare and suchlike. It was awesome, and unfortunate to have been pulled away from it.
Thats the sad thing about dreams, is that I never have them again. I dont have repeat. Curses, I wanted to see how this one ended.
Well, a cup of sweetness to soften the blow and ease me into my day.

Ughghgh, I hate when that happens. I’m a deep dreamer, & my dream life is my ‘other’ life, the stuff of of songwriting & strange story telling.
Oh well, there’s always another night to sleep, perchance to dream… ;)

I cannot believe its a week to christmas. Eeep. But I’m in pretty good shape, which is nice.
Time for the annual reading of Hogfather! And this is an excelent tea to accompany Terry Pratchett.

This is such a beautiful tea. And tasty too. Todays pot makes it a sipdown, sadly, but I think its part of the perminant collection, where I can get more of it. I proabably will soon, as it makes a delightful cold weather treat.
Sipping and listening to the Project 4 Awesome livestream, and watching videos to support charitys (the P4A is the annual youtube charity event, and I’m a fan. Next year, I want to make a video myself!)
Farewell for now, tasty tea.


I think I’ll be buying more of this tea also!

Had some of this at lunchtime. It was a treat. And they were almost out in my local Peets!
I knocked over my tin yesterday, and lost some of this leaf, and lost some of it into my sink. Not a lot, but enough to hurt me in my tender little soul. Its a good tea! Its only around this time of year! I wanna keep it!
Well, I’ve still got plenty, it will be alright.

drank White Chocolate Frost by DAVIDsTEA

Today I can really taste the white chocolate in it, which is welcome and delicious.
A successful day! My meeting with the head of the major arts organization near by (specifically education and outreach, which is what I want to do), went very well. I am going to write her a thank you card, and thank her. There are a bunch of potential really awesome things that I could help out with, and get my foot in the door of that industry. Yay.
So celebratory tea!

drank Creme Brulee by Simpson & Vail

I feel, due to the unsealed nature of the S&V tea containers, that I should sip them down fairly quickly. And I havnt felt an overwhelming desire to hord them, so sipping down I will go.
I am still tasting cocounut. What on earth? Why? Gah. Coconut. I do not care for coconut. Where is the promised caramel and custard? Hmmm.


What kind of package do they use?


That’s too bad to hear because I just made a huge order. I’m wondering too how they package theirs.


Its a waxed paper bag style thing, with a twist tie thing to close it. Not eactly airtight.


That’s bizarre. Maybe it’s a strategy to try and get folks to purchase the tins.


I was surprised by it myself. I’ll keep a running commentary on the freshness of my tea while I am logging them.

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.
