The first tea I’ve pulled out of the sampler of 12 that she sent me. I’ve had this one before, of course, and its alright. I find it a bit perfumy, but this cup was pretty nice.

My second cup of tea this morning, before I go out to my parents.
Yum, vanilla and peppermint. Lovely.
Once again, a Happy Hogswatch to you all!

First review? No pressure.
I got this as a gift to myself, and have been saving it for today. To all of you who celebrate this, Happy Christmas! For all of you who do not, happy Wednesday!
This smells very nice in the pretty holiday tin. Orange-y and sweet. And it looks so pretty, with the petals. I swear I even spied some golden shimmery bits, but that could just be imagination. And big chunks or orange peel.
Its very citrusy, with an after taste of spices. I keep looking around for the orange in my cup.
Enjoyable, I must say.
I will have time for some more tea, and then off to my parents house, where I may not get tea for a while. (humph, coffee-drinkers).
The best of the season to you, Steepster.

And to all a good night.

Oh this smells good. So very good. Its got the tingle of peppermint, and a beautiful note of creamy vanilla chasing after that peppermint.
I thought this would be just the thing for Christmas eve. Its a calm tea, and special and beautiful. It seems appropriate.


Sounds wonderful. Gentle. Calming.

Gingerbread baked, and now for the annual viewing of Hogfather.
This is a lovely cuppa tea. I will probably be drinking more of it before the night is done.

This is a very nice gingerbread black tea. And appropriate. I’m going to bake up some gingerbread today. And to that end, I must go off to the market.


=0) to market, to market….

Christmas eve! In celebration, I am sipping down this lovely tea. Peppermint and vanilla turns out to be a brilliant combo I might see if I can scrounge a bit more of this before the season is totally up.
Now the drinking of the holiday teas begins in earnest. Brace yourselves!

When I was growing up Christmas Eve-Eve was a thing between my brother and me. I’m sure we drove everyone nuts, running around and making a fuss over it being Christmas Eve-Eve.
So, in the spirit of that tradition, I’ll sip some of this tea.
I’m glad I’ve got a decent amount of this, as its quite good. I love mint, and the creamy underflavor is very nice.


Merry Christmas eve-eve to you.


I believe it is also festivus today too! Merry Christmas eve-eve! I will also be celebrating tonight. Woot!

drank Cookie by Lupicia

Per my new influx of tea, I’ve decided that its time to sip down some more tea. I only had a little bit of Cookie left, so that decided me.
This is a nice tea, with the butter cookie flavor. But its also a little delicate, so a bitter note comes through sometimes. Thats a little unfortunate, as I can be an agressive steeper.
This is one of those teas that I might restock someday, but not with anything resembling urgency.
Ah tea! And off I go to my day!

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.
