Goodness. This was a solid wall of rosebuds this morning. I guess they all settled to the bottom of the tin, and now that I’m nearing the end, I have found a ton of them.
I also think I understeeped this this morning. Its a little light this morning.

drank Marie-Antoinette by Nina's Paris

All the tasting notes of this say that its a delicate tea, so I’ve been somewhat nevously avoiding it, because I do not have the gentlest steeping hand.
Hmm. The apple taste is a somewhat more sour apple taste, which I actually like. I’m a fan of crisp apples.
The rose is the factor thats a little puzzling to me. Its a nice rose, but at least in this steeping, I’m not seeing an immediet relation between the two flavors.
Further experimentation is needed!

Pensive Lemur tea! Hurrah!
Its actually really good, especially for a bagged tea. Not too warm, due to the pleasant note of vanilla cutting through the cinnamon. Very nice.
Only a little of this left. I’ll have to try it against Glitter and Gold and see how that all shapes up!

I found the tiniest tin of this at my local Marshalls, and justified myself into buying it.
Hmm. Pear. I never know quite what I feel about normal pears, but this isnt half bad. Its not quite as caramelly as I was hoping, but you get a nice earthy note, and the pear tastes properly like a pear, not like something from a bottle.

For a while, I was finding all sorts of unexpected tea bargains at TJ Maxx (a Marshall’s “cousin”) but their tea shelf disappeared last time I looked :(

drank Fruits d'Alsace by Harney & Sons

Its time for an after dinner cup of tea! Do I reach for the vanilla, caramel, cinnamon or sugary teas? Nope! Tonight nothing but Fruits d’Alsace with its light fruitiness will do.

Its amazing how fast someones tastes can change.
Earlier this year, when I was just starting to get into loose leaf, I got this. I had heard that is was pretty good and I was feeling adventurous.
And I liked it! It struck me as being a very good rose tea. But now that I’ve tried more tea, my affection for it has waned a little.
Its still a decent rose black, but I have discovered better ones. I’ll still drink this up without problems.

Oooh, what would you say is your favourite rose black?

Rosehips

I would say Rose Scented, by Harney and Sons, is the current favorite. Its so light and lovely.

I need chocolate. Bring on the tea!
I dropped a tea cup that a friend gave me, and its shattered beyond repair. Bummer.
All the more reason to drink tea. Fortunatly I have some back up cups, but I’ll still miss that one.

Sorry for the loss of your teacup :(

Cavocorax

Awww. I know that feeling. :(
Boo!

You can maybe sand off the edges and drill a hole in a nice piece to use as a necklace pendant?

drank Valentine's Blend by Harney & Sons

And I said to myself “self, you have only one sachet of this left, and then it will be a sipdown. You should drink it.”
And so I did.
Sipdown!

I tried a slightly longer steep today (though I didnt keep very good track of just how long, I’m afraid), and it has coaxed out some very noticable coco flavor.

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.
