First day back at work after a little vacation is always a bit of a tough day. But it could be much worse.
However I have aquired a headache. Tea! Hopefully tea can help!

Nightmares and work stress woke me up this morning. Blergh.
This tea remains sweet, mellow, and just a delight to sip on in a morning where I need to simutaniously calm down and wake up.
Its always hard to go back to work after a holiday. Sigh. Well, it must be done.

Nightshifter

I just ordered this one. Can’t wait to try it!

Veronica

Someday I’m going to place a Butiki order, and this is going to be the first tea in my cart. It sounds delicious!

Rosehips

It is! I hope that both of you like it when you get to try it. Its an almondy cookie/croissant loveliness.

Still not much impressed with this. It hardly leaves an impression. Not very chocolatly, only sort of minty, and a whole lot of red.
Hmm. Well, only a little bit left.

And now it is a Sunday Sample Sipdown. Thanks again to Josie Jade for sending this to me.
Off you pop, Holiday Spiced Plum, you shall not be gracing my cupboard again!

What does this taste like? Like if you melted a plum candy in hot water, a little bit.
I, er, ordered more teas then I expected too from various black friday-cyber monday sales, so, while I have reached my black friday sipdown goal, the sheer amount of tea thats coming in has given me a great desire to sip down the teas that I’ve only got a little of.
So I’m going to try to finish this today. And it is December, after all. Holiday tea is now appropriate.

With Boston and the more “autumnal” teas gone from my cupboard, its time to ease into the “winter” flavors.
Starting off with this! This is, as always, warm and spicy, with a sparkiling note of citrus in it. Yum yum. Fab. I will be very happy with this for the cold months.

drank Caramel & Rum by Lupicia

This months Lupicia freebie in the newsletter. I like to brew them up the same day that I get them, if possible, as otherwise they tend to sit in my sample bowl, until I have one of my drink-all-the-samples manias.
This is nice! It smells amazingly like one of those chewy caramels, and a faint chaser of rum is in the taste. I might hunt down a bit of this in future, as I like to have a sweet noncaffinated tea on hand.

drank Cookie by Lupicia

Elevenses. Ish.
This tea has a vaugly coffee smell to it, but, at least for this steeping, I dont taste any of it. It tastes like a butter cookie. Nice!
So much to get done today. Bleh. Well, at least I have tea.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons

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.

Sil

pssst i think you meant November is the end of fall? heh

Rosehips

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

Sil

if it makes you feel better i had to read it like 3 times before i figured out what was wrong with it lol

K S

I thought maybe she was in Australia.

Rosehips

’fraid not, just not properly caffinated.

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

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!

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.
