I have finished my writing for this evening! Hooray! Now I will work on the scarf that I am knitting. I am the worlds slowest knitter, but its coming along.
Now a nice and calm evening.
Extra strong tonight. Pretty good that way.


What is your WC at?? :D

I crochet, but knitting discombobulates me. Lol

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia

I had not expected to experience this lovely, fruity oolong again quite so soon! Many thanks to Ost for including this in our swap.
Its a beautiful fruit flavor. Its so much like biting into a melon that is freshly ripe. Lovely.
A last breath of summer in the lap of autumn.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

I went to bed last night thinking about what tea I’d have this morning. This was it!
This tea is perfectly fine, nothing wrong with it, but it does not make my heart sing, I must confess. There are pumpkin teas that I like much better.
Still! This is warm and spicy, and its enjoyable this morning.

I don’t always drink a caffeinated tea in the evening, but when I do its because I have seven hundred or so more words to write tonight. Gah!
This is a lovely, mellow tea. I actually like it much better in the evening, as it lacks a serious pop to spring me up in the morning. I like it best on a lazy morning or afternoon, or now, as a dessert style tea, to help with the ol wordcount.
In other news, I’ve got to work on some sipdowns! I’ve got so much tea, and, I confess, more on the way. Ooops. Heh.

Its been a long time since I had this one, but I had a “free cup of tea” card from Peets, and an empty lunch hour, and, well, these things just sort of happened.
I had a funny conversation with the barista about tea, who was excited that I was ordering it (no one does, but they buy the tea bags and the leaf!") and she provided much floruish along with my tea cup.
Its peppermint! As I recall the last time I had this, I never the quality of peppermint tea, it seems, unless it is bad, so that means this was alright.

I was so cruelly jerked from bed this morning. Alas!
We’re going to be down a staff member today at work, so its gonna be extra busy. Sheesh.
Is it the weekend yet?


Don’t say “weekend”… ;_;

Many, many thanks to Ost for this tea!
I had a beautiful lazy day, and this tea was a beautiful way to end the evening.
Its lovely! I’d had this once before, and now I can see that I need to hunt it out for my own cupboard.
A lovely Sunday. If only tomorrow was not Monday!

I’ve had an amazingly productive morning! Writing done, working out done, putting in pay sheets submitted, and a great many other useful things.
Now, with most of Saturday still before me, I’m paralyzed with choices. What will I do?
I logged the amazing teas that Ost sent me. My cupboard is huge now! I’m gonna have some serious sipping to do.
So, I’ve pulled this out of my sample bowl, to try again. Come on, green tea, lets do this.
Last time I had this I did not like this, but I think I have a better understanding of how to brew greens now. I’m liking it much better!
Its still not my very favorite, but I’m enjoying it well enough now. Rating has been bumped to reflect this, and a sample sipdown!

Saturday! Hurrah!
On schedule today is a lot of tea drinking, including diving into the phenominal swap package that Ost sent to me. I’ll also be pushing for a lot of writing as well, I’ve got a lot of writing to do today. I’d like t get a bit ahead.
So there will be lots of tasty writer juice to help me along as I type. We’ve hit the second week, and that’s always an awkward time in my novels. The world has been at least mostly established, but the whole plot has not yet been established. Just much to work through!

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1812 tasting notes

It was one of those nights when I woke up at 3 am for no reason, and then had a dreadful rest of my sleeping night.
Friday, though! I’m excited for Friday! I’m so glad. I’m looking forward to it being the weekend, to be sure. I’ve got a lot to do this weekend, but its better than the office!
In other news, its warming up here, unfortunately. I want fall back! However this tea is still autumn incarnate, so I’ll cling to it.

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.
