My morning is going much better now. :)

Since I woke up so early I decided what else to do than make some fluffy chocolate chip pancakes. This was my morning cuppa.
And I have to say it’s much nicer than I expected it would be! My first white earl grey. I usually always have to add a lot of milk or cream to traditional black earl greys to love them, but you can’t do that with white tea, so I was wondering if I’d like the taste without any additions.
Surprisingly yes! Very much so! So interesting to taste earl grey flavors in a white tea. Much less harsh, but still a good punch of bergamot in the face.
I added a bit of honey and that tasted lovely, and then I did something unthinkable and added a spoon of coconut milk… yes. Milk. To white tea.
And it actually just added a creamy note, and the flavors still held up quite nicely. Cool! Makes me want to find a White Earl Grey De La Creme!

On my last bag, Erin! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful tea with me! I’ve GOT to order more of this pronto.

Oh here’s a couple better pics of my newly ginger hair in the sunlight! http://i56.tinypic.com/2r56o3m.png, http://i51.tinypic.com/sya3ki.png It’s in a ponytail, because I’m growing it out and it’s at an odd length. Wish hair grew faster! Did the whole extension thing but it’s just annoying.

Evening cup. Yes, caffeine this late. I wanted some Florence! I’ll deal.
And actually I’ve noticed that sometimes caffeine has a sedative effect on me.

My youngest can hardly keep her eyes open after tea time in the afternoon. A student who used to drink green and white teas with me told me she always has tea before bed because it soothes and relaxes her and helps her sleep. So why not?

Interesting!

This is sooo good. First time I’ve made this since I’ve purchased my Breville. It’s a zillion times better. I can taste so much more complexity! I didn’t realize the lovely creamy note before! Seriously awesome. Great plain but I enjoyed my cuppas with a touch of cream & sugar.

Did I never rate this one, either? What the heck. I must write reviews in my dreams.
Speaking of dreams, guayusa is reported to increase lucid dreams.
It’s also an aphrodisiac.
Definitely ordering more of this. haha.

Thanks, Jenn! c: I think I’ve about worked my way through your generous package of samples. You’re the best. <3

On another note.. I just put in an order for 16 teas from Davids Tea…….
David, youre going to force me to live in a box. :( But at least I will have delicious tea to keep me warm.

Hey, if we share a box to live in… we can POOL OUR TEA!!! It’s a plan :)

Ashley Bain

I’m down!

DaisyChubb

I misread this as a pool full of tea. A tea pool. Sounds like a plan!

Maxime-Daniel Friðrikson

Lucid Dreamer and Aphrodisiac in the same review… You impress me Ashley! Haha :) Anyway this tea is awesome :)

Ashley Bain

Dang right. ‘Cause I’m the exception!
