Wow. This was a sample from Lupicia. Huh.
This is savory. So, so savory. You really can taste rosemary in it, and the peppercorn too! How unusual.
I dont know if I’d want it in my cupboard forever, but its a fun experience now.

I really am almost out of nearly all my loose blacks. I’ve got to fix that.
Its gonna be a very busy day. Its the first day of Camp Nanowrimo, so I’m getting started on that. And I have an extra shift of work this evening. So it would be good to get right to the writing, and get as much done as I can.
I’m sticking with an unfussy, tasty tea to serve as my first pot of writer juice for this project.
Onward! To battle!

I did not sleep well last night. No surprises, as it was 90 degrees in my house when I went to sleep, and it never really cooled down. And its going to be over 100 today.
Plus I’m a little sad. So I’ve got a cheerful breakfast, of english muffin, yougurt, local honey, and this tea. This pairs so beautiful with honey, its one of my favorite meals or snacks.
I doubt I’ll be drinking much tea today. Yeesh. Wish me luck.

Aw, sorry about your night, but your breakfast sounds delicious!

I am being bolder and trying more “plain” blacks. I’m a lover of flavored tea, but I can see that there is great deliciousness hiding about in their unflavored sisters.
So I picked this up. Its bagged, which is not super ideal, but I’ve liked what I’ve had from Steven Smith before, and am willing to put my tastebuds in his hands.
This is pretty good! I’m delighted with how smooth it is, and, while its not exactly sweet, it is light and refreshing and quite good indeed. I’ll enjoy having this, on the days I feel more like a classic cup of tea.

Its time for tea experimentation. Please, if you would, imagine a lab coat, goggles, and test tubes full of tea.
Now that we’ve all conjured up the correct mental image, I can get down to experimentation.
I used less tea, as my first experiment, just a tiny amount, less than I thought would be useful, but its worked well.
I also steeped it for just three minutes, which is two minutes less than I’d done before, and that also improves the flavor.
This will never be a favorite, but its much imporved this way. Though I’m still drinking it with milk.

It never cooled down last night. This happens every year, we start to fall into the weeks of 100 degree or nearly 100 degree weather.
Bleh.
Bring me autumn, with its sweaters and the tea drinking weather! Gah.
On the plus side, I woke up and realized it was Saturday. Thats always nice.

Goodness. What a morning. The high up boss came in, unexpectedly, with the desire to redo the orginization of the office. We do need it, so I’ll be interested to see what she’s done when I go back in this evening.
I’m exsausted. I need tea.
The last of these little tea blossom bits. Its a light tea, not too dense or intensly flavored, but its tasty, even though its light.
Thanks to my sister, who gave this to me. Not bad!

The enternal question- why is it so hard to wake up?
I’ve said before, but I stand behind my opinion, that you need at least one good bagged tea, for the hurry up and go mornings.
Ginger peach fills that niche.
Sip, sip, sigh.

I agree with your theory!

Its been a long day. Very long indeed. I am glad to be sitting with a cup of tea.
I like rooibos in sachets. Clean up is so much easier.

I had a cup of this last night.
This is my boyfriends favorite tea, and when I go visit my friends out of state I make sure to pick him up some. So we brewed it up and had it last night while catching up on Game of Thrones.
Its good! As said in my note about Paris, I like fruity black teas, and this one hits the spot. The blueberry really comes through, and its quite enjoyable. Maybe next time I’ll pick some up for myself. Until then, I’ll just raid my boyfriends cupboard when I want a sip.

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.
