Goodbye, Carol! Until we meet again. I will think fondly of your sweet, candy-bright flavors.

Oh, I’m so glad its a three day weekend. Its gonna be fantastic to not have to go into the office tomorrow morning.
I’m not above drinking a black tea in the evening, especially when it can be a lazy morning the next day.
I love Lupicia, and I love this tea, but its a bit of a mystery why its a Christmas tea. I mean, strawberry? Rose? Wha?
Its still lovely, don’t get me wrong, it just does not seem to be a winter flavor.

When looking at the flavor notes for this tea, I was rather confused. All those notes in one tea?
Turns out, yes, yes there are.
This is a lovely oolong, rich, layered, complex flavors that boil down to simple goodness. I may need some more than the little sample Ost was good enough to send to me. Oh yes, I see some tea shopping in my future. Ooooh yes.
Many, many, many thanks to Ost for letting me try this!


I knew I would not let this one run out, so I wrote the name on the tin in gold ink. That means it is a permanent tea in my collection!


What a fab idea! I should do that as well.

drank Cranberry Pear by DAVIDsTEA

A sipdown! I figured I should have one.
I surprised myself by how much I liked this, but it was very good indeed. I think there will be a time when its welcomed back into my cupboard with open arms, but I’ve got a lot of sipping down to do first.

I’m a good influence on my boyfriend and his roommate. Their cute little tea station has bloomed to amazing levels, and, is full of good teas!
In a hurry today, so grabbed this one, and off I go!

Its my birthday! Today I’m being whisked off to a fancy brunch, and to the opera! I love the opera, so I’m excited.
Time to start the day off right, with this minty, vanilla-y wonderfulness.
Its perhaps silly, at my age, but I’m always excited for my birthday.


Happy birthday! Sounds like you have a fun day planned. Enjoy!!


Happy Birthday! :)

drank Figgy Pudding by Della Terra Teas
1865 tasting notes

I need a rich cup of tea today. You ever have those mornings?
I was thinking, as this was steeping up, that I’ve never actually had Figgy Pudding, so I have nothing to compare it to. For all I know, this could either be a perfect recreation, or a total deviation. No idea.
What I do know is that the tea has a rich taste of figs, which I quite like. Good!

Afternoon cup. Somehow, for me, oolongs are the right sort of tea to drink in the afternoon.
This one is so nice! Light, and tasting very clean, crisp, and almost juicy. Lovely cup of oolong.
Many thanks to Ost who sent this my way.

So lately, when I can’t decide what to have, I pick up the likely teas and smell them. I was thinking a winter tea, but I picked up this one and the smell hit me, and bingo!
I really, really like this. You can taste the squash, not just the pie spice. This is lovely on a cold day!


Della Terra does “desserts” well.

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.
