I am cheating with this. (can one cheat at tea?) A tea bag suggests a single serving of tea, but I’ve crammed a bunch into one of my tea pots and brewed it up that way. I was also hoping that the concentration of tea would improve the flavor.
Nope. Drat.
Well, down the hatch anway!
Edit- SIPDOWN!

LOL!!!!!

Fjellrev

Haha oh geez. It’s sure fun to sit there guzzling tea you don’t even like just to get rid of it.

Second cup of my morning was this delcious blend. This is one of my teas for all seasons. In just about any weather, at any time of year, if someone suggests a cup of Tower of London, I will certainly say yes, and drink it up with great pleasure.
I have this in sachets, but next time I’ll get it loose leaf.

Cavocorax

I bought the tagalong because they were out of the loose leaf, but I didn’t mind. The sachets are really good!

Rosehips

Agreed. I will probably get some sachets too, as they allow really fast tea, when I need to rush. And loose leaf only comes in a really big size….

drank Marco Polo by Mariage Frères

This tea is magnificent. Beyond every expectation for sure, transendant, and just so, so delicious.
My sister gave me a little bit of this several months ago for my birthday, and I’ve been greedily hording it. Well, enough of that! Tea is for drinking! I still have enough for a small cup, when I will enjoy on a lovely day, and then, one day when I have been very good indeed, I wil order a full size of this for myself.

JustJames

what a lovely sister.

Rosehips

I’m fond of her. A fellow tea sibling!

Oofph, it was a long slog today. So a reward of this lovely almond and cranberry blend was in order. This smells so perfectly autumnal to me. Sip sip sip.

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA

This tea, when I opened it to scoop some out, struck me with its beauty, The little gold bits make it very lovely. And, when it brews up, it sparkles in the cup! How fun is that?
The description of this is absolutly spot on “the slow suggestion of cinnamon”. I had expected a very strong flavor, but this is a very gentle flavor instead. Not a bad thing at all. This is mild and warm, and is yet another tea that I might keep a hold of until the winter time for full potency.

Continued celebration of my mothers birthday by drinking all the pumpkin teas.
I got this as a sample from ROT, so it will be a sample sipdown as well.
This tastes like pumpkin pie spice, which is exactly what it is billed as, isnt it? Its got a decent underlying pumpkin quality which is good. Pie like, and good.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
1021 tasting notes

Its my mothers birthday today, and in celebration, I am drinking all the pumpkin teas I own, as pumpkin is her favorite flavor. So much so that we always have pumpkin pie for the celebrations, instead of birthday cake!
The reviews of this were facinating, and all over the board. I could expect anything from an overhyped weak tea, to a tea that was the greatest phenomenon ever and might very well do my dishes for me.
What I’ve experienced is somewhere bewteen these extremes. I like it! I find it just a touch more chai-y than pumpkin-y, but its a tea that warms and reminds me very much of autumn. This isnt an active adoration tea, where every sip is a swoon. This is a passive enjoyment tea, where I dont have to pay too much attention to it, but I enjoy it all.
Yay pumpkin!

Fjellrev

She’s born during the perfect time of year to have her favourite flavour as her birthday dessert!

Rosehips

It is rather lucky, isnt it?

This Darjeeling is positivly mellow! Its got a little bit of a coppery taste to it, and less of the greeny undertone that I have come to expect from a Darjeeling.
An excelent cup for this afternoon. I need caffine, and a good afternoon tea is just the ticket.
A million thanks to Fuzzy_Peachkin for providing me with the cutest little tin of this that you ever did see.

Six hours of sleep last night. Lets just say that it was agony to haul my carcass out of bed this morning.
Rewarding myself with this lovely vanilla blend.
Day two of waking up totally exsausted. Bravo, sleep schedule, bravo.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have plenty of tea, and today I will nurse along with tea!

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.
