Gah! This has got to be the most frustrating tea that I own. Every time I steep it up its diffrent.
Today its got the coffee taste back, which is unfortunate (I hate coffee), and less salty goodness.
Grr. I will understand you, tea. (Shakes fist at the sky)

Cavocorax

I really have to try this one. Even with a mixed up review like this, it just catches my attention! I better find the nearest Davidstea to my new house!

Rosehips

I find it really interesting, which is why, even without getting it to behave the same way twice, I have not chucked it. I would be interested to hear what you say about it!

Now this is a holiday tea. Spicy without being overwhelming, subtly citrus-y, and just so, so nice.
This morning I am better than yesterday (just in time for work), and so I have ventured on a much better tea, if still seasonally inappropriate.
I am almost out of this. I very much hope this comes back in the winter!

Todays requirements for tea.
1. Hot
2. Bagged (no sense wasting perfectly good loose leaf)
3. Not beloved (no sense wasting perfectly good tea on a day when your health makes it impossible to properly appriciate.)
So this fits the bill.

Like your logic!

What posesses me to grab this on 100 degree days? I have no idea. Subconcious longing for the cold weather of the holidays? That may be as close to an actual answer as we ever get.

Sipdown!
Thanks again to Josie Jade for this. I wish it tasted as good as it smells!

Sipdown! My final cup of this turned out really bitter. Oh well. All gone now!

This has been languishing in my cupboard for ages. A friend sent it to me last year in a care package, mostly, I suspect, for the tin, which has a cute little image of London on it. This sort of tea is not what I usually reach for.
Still, it seems like an excelent day to drink the teas I do not really care about, and so I brewed some up.
Well, its black tea. Its not bitter, which can be a worry, but its not very impressive. I almost never add milk or sugar to my teas, but I might give this one a try with additives in the near future.

Second cup of the morning. I seek out strong but not beloved teas to help move past my fuddled senses. This only sort of worked. Normally its minty and good, today I was just questing for something hot to drink to damp down my throat.
Bleh.

My sinuses are still unhappy, making every breath feel dusty, and making it painful to swallow. Tea helps this a lot.
Today I needed a good tea, but perhaps not a great tea. Something I enjoyed, with a good amount of flavor. Bingo. Rose Petal black for the first cup of the morning.

Backlogg from yesterday. Still feeling poorly, I reached for my very favorite chamomile, which I am hording and parcing out bit by bit. It went perfectly with my evening read of a silly murder mystery, and then I went to bed.
This is such a nice tea. Complex and light and everything an herbal should be.

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.
