Sipdown. I do like you, Lady Grey. You may come back into my cubbord someday, but we are casual friends, not besties. Till next time, Lady Grey!

Trusty Vanilla Black. Today I go to my extra long day of work work, feed the assorted menagerie (plus a new addition, a dog), and then come home late.
Shees. Bring on the dependable tea!

Accidental Sipdown! I picked up my trusty tin of Comoro for my evening cup, and there was only one sachet in it! Horrors! I am out of Comoro!
Oh dear, and I really should be on a buying hiatus………

You know, I’ve really been meaning to try this. It sounds wonderful!

Rosehips

I love it. Highly recommended.

Double bagged this, as is recommended. Its nice, but not quite as chocolatty or as minty as I would like. Hmm.

I arrived early to work, so I went to the nearest place to fortify myself with more tea. Unfortunately I wasn’t early enough to go to the really good coffee shop, with the nice selection of tea, so I had to settle for a place that has all its tea in a basket near the front, that you pick out what you want and dump hot water on it.
Sigh.
So I picked this, as I like Darjeeling, and I’d never tried this brand before.
Meh. Its drinkable, but not exciting. One dimensional and weak. Will I never find a truly exceptional Darjeeling?

Not in a basket where you pour hot water on it. :)

Margaret’s Hope is pretty awesome, and I was only having 2nd flush! I imagine first must be wonderful! And Harney and Sons has some great ones, I think one is called Punjab? I should look it up!

Rosehips

Ohh, thanks Ashmanra, I will look those up.

If you message me your address I’ll send you the Butiki Giddhapar Darjeeling I have. I had it once and it wasn’t my kind of tea. I might have just one more cup to make up my mind about it, but I’d rather it go to someone who likes darjeeling.

Rosehips

Thank you, Fuzzy_Peachkin! I will do that.

Its up extra early today, as I’m housesitting and need to tend to the pets of the household, which include three cats, a parakeet, two ducks and fifteen canaries. They dont need a lot of work, but still, those canaries need to be fed!
I turn, on such a morning, to something I already know, as opposed to something new. This has a lovely orange-spice quality to it. A very pleasant cup in the morning.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Ducks! I always wanted a pet duck, but they require more space than I have. That must be fun pet-sitting for that much a variety of birds.

Rosehips

Its really interesting. This morning, one of the ducks (who I had been warned about) finally worked up the guts to peck at me. Fortunately I was wearing sensible boots, and it was funny, instead of painful.

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Hasn’t he heard the phrase, “Don’t peck the foot that feeds you?” :-)

Rosehips

He seemed very puzzled that he was pecking me, but I was not reacting in pain. Ha! I’ve been warned about you, little terror. And then he tried to escape. Nope, not today!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Lol! Silly duck!

Sipdown! Bye bye, chamomile, I dont think you will grace my cupboard again, but it was nice while it lasted.

Sipdown. This is such a creamy pot of tea, with perfect strawberry flavor. A great tea for a summer evening. I am sorry to see this go.

drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia

A little pot of this is a lovely way to start up the day. This is a very elegant tea, with a lovely balace of flavors. The little sugar crystals in the dry tea gives it just the right amount of sweetness.

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.
