I can’t seem to get ahead on my things to do list, but I feel I need to take a quick break for Steepster, as I’m trying this tea for the first time today.

I got this as part of my Fall try me kit. The smell and taste of this tea is a lovely pumpkin spice experience. It emanates coziness that I associate with Fall baking, and the taste is accurate to my expectations of a tea named “Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie”. I got 2 solid steeps out of the tea, the first one having a nice balance between the black tea and the spices. The second steep having less intense flavors, but it’s still an enjoyable cup.

Sadly, I have to minimize the number of black teas I buy (as I am extremely caffeine sensitive), so this will be an occasional buy rather than a cupboard staple for me. I’m glad companies like Della Terra offer these sample size options, so I still have a chance to occasionally try teas that are unsuitable for me in larger quantities.

The Try Me packs are really great – I love that you can even customize them. That’s too bad about being decaffeinate sensitive. I wish everyone listed the level of caffeine like DavidsTea does. It’s not exact, but it gives you an idea at least!

Yes – I love those try me packs. I see they also have a surprise pack, which I was considering buying this morning, but I figured I should probably drink some more of what I already have before ordering any more tea. C’mon willpower! lol

Yeah I really wanted to try that too but.. UGH. I really need to drink more tea. I thought 80 was too much. Then 100. I’m at 120 now. :| I’m worried where I’ll be in a year, especially since I bought a 4 month Amoda subscription. #whoops

Just keep sipping… just keep sipping…

I keep looking at those subscriptions with various companies, but thankfully I’ve been able to resist…so far

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
