After much talk/begging/bullying from a friend I broke down and started watching Doctor Who. I don’t need one more thing to potentially suck hours of my life away, but I told my friend I’d give the show a fair shot. In turn she is going to read Jane Eyre or The Brothers Karamazov, two of my favorite classic novels. I guess we’ll each broaden our horizons.

Before settling into the show I made a big mug of this tea. It’s very cake-y tonight. There’s still pineapple but not as much as usual. I am getting toward the bottom of my bag, so that might have something to do with it. At any rate, this is a wonderful dessert tea and perfect for curling up under a blanket while watching tv.

I want to try this. I keep waiting for the chocolate covered strawberry to come back in a small size so I can order more things from Della Terra. :)

Lariel – hahah.
Which episode(s) are you starting with? For a reluctant first-timer that could make a very big difference! I started with 2005’s Series One, but it took me a few to get into it because some of it was cringe-worthy. It got so much better though. <3

Cavocorax, I’m starting with 2005’s series one, also. Nate, my friend, really likes the Doctor in season 2, but I started with the previous season just so I would have an idea of what’s going on. I’m only a few episodes in, so I’m still reserving judgement. :)

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
