Its not official, but I always feel like the last day of November is the end of Winter. So I thought it would be appropriate to finish off this autumnal tea today.
Sob. I love you Boston, I dont want you to go. But it wont be forever! You’ll be coming back to me, and maybe even before next autumn.
Wow, we pass Black Friday and suddenly I’m sipping them down like nuts.

Sigh. Yes, what Sil said. I need to quite writing my statuses in a sleep addled state. :)

This is the afternoons cup of writer juice. So close to 50k! I can do it! Whew.
This tea never really made an impression. Perhaps I didnt understand its steeping parameters, but I never could really eek out the promised flavors. Its not bad, but it leaves almost no impression. This is a sipdown, and I will only really have my tasting notes to remember that I’d tried this.
Sipdown!

Black friday. (dun dun duuuuunnnn!!!) I know bunch of you have already got your orders, and I’ve put one as well. And am pondering at least one more.
But I’m also venturing out into the world again this shopping madness day. We dont do the big shops, in my family. I’m going to our Goodwill half off sale. Thrifter for life! And then to a local craft fair, to look for presents for people.
I dont know what I did to this tea this morning, but its really working for me. Yum! Maybe I got some more orange peel in it? Its warm and wonderful, as I prepare to head out into the world.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

To all the American Steepterites, like me, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope, that no matter how you celebrate it, its proving to be a lovely day, full of good things.
For everyone not celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you have an excelent Thursday.
Only one tea would do to kick off this morning, and that was this pumpkin delight of a tea.
Sadly, its also a sipdown. Never fear, pumpkin creme brulee, it wont be forever!

I just ordered this! I’ve heard so much about it and I can’t wait to try it! Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

Oh my, they let me go from job A today, which is going to make my life so much easier! I have a chance to go home, and prep for job B tonight!
And indulge in a quick pot of this lovely tea. The real mystery/wonder of this is the crispy sugar note, exactly like the top of a creme brulee. How is that possible? I swear I can taste the crunch!
Onwards!

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Beware, a small rant today-
I have three jobs, and usually they dont cross over. Usually I teach a class on Thursday, but as tomorrow is Thanksgiving, my boss rescheudled my classes to the Wednesday before- today. Gah! I work today at one of my other jobs! This took some monumental rescheduling, to make it all work.
I needed nothing less than the best to get me going. I do love you, Paris. A bright cup.
Lets hope today goes well.

Holly Faye

Best of luck!

There is one scoop of this left in my tin. One! How did we get to this point! Argh!
Despite all my big talk about seasonality, I feel like I might get some more Boston in the black friday sales, I love it so much. This is just such a lovely tea. Almond, cranberry, and just the taste of fall.

I like this one too!

Oooh, I am so making this pumpkin spice loaf again soon. Its so good! And so easy too. Thats the best kind of good. I had a cup of this along with an extra slice of loaf for dessert. Yum. But this tea pairs really well with all sorts of thing, doesnt it?

Finishing up the Thanksgiving cards with this mellow almond cup of tea. I love sending cards, I can hardly wait until its time for the winter holiday cards as well!
Not a complicated tea, but sweet and gentle and nice.

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.
