I chose this because Hannibal is on again tonight, and I would be an easy sipdown before passing the rest to Sil, but…

but then I turned on my computer and got my notification from DAVIDsTEA. My tea is outside the house! So this will be the last cup I drink in my fall leaves cup!

Now that I’ve unpacked it, I have to say that the color changing thing is a little weird. Maybe I would have liked the Perfect Mug more? It basically looks like the whales are stickers just stuck on top of the lid. I can even see a bit of white lining the sticker on the whale that’s on the mug! (http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2hdpgde&s=8) Maybe that’s just how it works with the changing color mugs? And I never noticed because my Fall leaves cup had delicate lines every where so they felt like they were actually part of the mug? Either way. I’m not disappointed yet. For the most part, my leaves are in tact, so I’m sure I can care for my whales.

Whaaaaaaaales!

Oh, also, Hannibal… This is an odd tea. I actually don’t like it at first but I do after a few sips. It’s just spicy and surprising. I can taste the pomegranate, ginger, and the cinnamon mostly.. A lot of cinnamon. And that’s surprising.

I wonder why the blender chose Cinnamon? Is that muskiness going to be the last thing you smell before he kills you? Hmmm…

(sipdown 190 – woah what happened to getting to 150? lol)

omg your tea is here! I can’t wait to read reviews. Also, I’m glad you love your whale mug. I’m scared of the colour-changing ones because I somehow managed to wreck my Christmas one and am still really annoyed about that. But omg yes mugs and tea!

That’s fast, right? I can’t believe it! My original plan was to go to the store on the weekend and buy some then, but that depends on us having time to go out there. I really didn’t expect to get my order now! :O

Part of me wishes I’d grabbed the Perfect Mug version so that I could have the whale inside the mug and not worry about tacky stickers falling off or something, but… I love the dark blue of this. It’ll be fine. I’ll be happy once I commit and use it. :D I can’t wait to read your reviews too! We need some nice fresh spring teas to get out of this winter funk!

Oh yeah, you’ll love your mug! I’m so glad you’ve opened it. I, like, keep on walking past my new mug and going over to feel the box, but you know how it is: once it’s open it’s open,and you can only open it once and I can’t decide which tea to have in it first and aaahh

Cavocorax

Hahaha. I bet the longer you let it sit there, the more pressure you’ll have to break it in with the perfect tea.

Just drink Queen Catherine. :P

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
