It’s almost two in the morning, there’s a pot of strawberry vanilla bean jam bubbling merrily on the stove (I keep sneaking tastes even though I know it’s not done yet), and this tea is the perfect companion. I got up early today to go to a yoga class (yin yoga, which is new to me but oh so satisfying) and followed it up with a couple hours of rock climbing. It’s been a long day, and there’s another one tomorrow (way too much bureaucratic nonsense to deal with), but right now there’s a cup of tea that reminds me of dusty strawberry fields under the hot sun, and the crickets chirping incessantly, and the scent of jam filling the kitchen, so it’s all okay.

Ooof, what a morning. And I understeeped this tea. Bleh!
I had a double shift this morning, and now need to go to the auto parts store, work out, and complete two online work trainings, before going back for the evening shift. Grrr. This is gonna suck.
But! At least I have tea, and I can work on sipdowns!
I underbrewed this today. Sloppy of me, but I wasn’t watching the clock. So its a ghost of its true flavor. Blast.

Happy Mothers day, to all who celebrate it! My mother and I are doing our tradition, of going to a local festival and shopping. Hooray for a girls day!
This is one of my favorite spring teas. Really light and pleasant. I’m almost through this packet, which is sad, but hey, that’s gotta happen sometime.

Its going to be close to 90 degrees today. Booo! Its March, that’s absurd! In all ways absurd!
Ugh, I hate summer (especially when its supposed to be spring). I’ve never done well in the heat, I burn like paper, and its too hot for tea! Aaaah!
So a “warm weather” blend, which is to say a tea that I feel is more appropriate for warm weather than cold weather, which is fruitier blends, and florals.
Today things call for strawberry, cream and roses. Yum.

I totally feel you on the weather…it’s been absolutely miserable here. Totally like summer already :(

Happy first day of spring!
Nothing for it, but to rummage through my cupboard for the springiest tea in my possession, which is this, as far as I’m concerned.
Strawberry, vanilla and rose petals, its light, delicate, and just so darn cheerful. I’m very fond of it- its hard to be sad when drinking this tea, even if I do have to go to work soon.

Fjellrev

Strawberry, vanilla, and rose… what a combination!

How am I going through my teas so very quickly? How have I managed that? Gah! This is my last pot of Yume until I can get myself to a Lupicia and get more tea.
How my world has changed! When I started on Steepster, I had about 20 teas, which I considered excessive. Now, even though I’m actively trying to control my numbers, I still have double that now. Its funny how, now, I stare at the tea in my kitchen, saying to myself “I have nothing to drink!” Ha.
Yume is a delightful spring cup, creamy and strawberry like. I enjoy it very much indeed. But this is the end of this tin. I’ve just been breezing through the Lupicia teas this year.
Sipdown.

More writer juice! Moar!
I’m almost out of this too. Yeesh, I’m just powering through my rose teas this spring! A Lupicia order may be required very soon.
Trying to figure out if the store is open. I suddenly got a yen to cook a quiche, and I dont have all the ingredients. I also want to figure this out without putting on my clothes and going out, though. Things are so nice here in my robe.
Well, I’ve got a thousand words to write still anyway.

When I’m in a Nanowrimo session I tend to think of my tea as “writer juice,” like, “oh, time to do some writing, let me brew up some writer juce so I can get down to it.” Its so helpful, having a delicious cup at my side as I hash out plot and try to name all my characters.
This is a good one. Soft, creamy, and a delight to sip. Puts me in a good mood.
Back to writing!

Writer juice! I like that. Good for squoozing out activity ideas for fifth-graders, too. I certainly understand the “hashing out copy blues,” but I couldn’t coax a plot out of my brain if my life depended on it :)

Backlogged from yesterday.
It was one of those days with only a single pot of tea, so I decided the delicious, creamy cloud that is Yume was the one to do.
I wrote a lot for camp, got my hair cut, went to work, and went to a Disney movie viewing party (Mulan and Frozen), which was all delightful. But busy.

Sil

Sounds fun!

My weekend was lovely. I saw two great shows, had delicious meals, and a lot of very good shopping.
But now its Monday, and back I go to the grind.
Well, lets start out with a cup of something very nice.
Today this is extra vanilla-y and creamy. Yum.

TeaBrat

Yay for lovely weekends!

First day of spring tea continues!
This blend, with its strawberries and roses and vanilla, just screams spring time for me. Light and soft and delicious. My hand automatically pulled it off the cupboard today. Perfection on this splendid day. The weather is just as perfect as it should be for the first day of spring!

Stephanie

Yay spring!

Yay Lupicia!

Sipdown. Cue the soft weeping.
Yume is a much beloved blend by me. The strawberry and vanilla walk hand in hand of deliciousness.
However, it is a summer/springy tea in my mind, and I’m on buying hiatus. When I do another order, I shall get some yume again. Absolutly. Bye bye for now, pretty tea.

My morning cuppa. Light and fresh, with strawberry and vanilla. A good reward for hauling myself out of bed in the morning. Not an easy feat, either.

You will have to imagine a contented sigh. I really like Yume, its a sweet balance of strawberry and vanilla, which are some of my favorite flavors.
This is going to be the start of my day. My day is going to be such that I might not get another cup of tea today (horrors!), so made sure that the cup that starts off my day is something I really like.
Off I go to start my day!

i added this to my shopping list because of this review =0)

I hope you like it, when you get some!

Ah. Ahhhh. This is the stuff. Yume was an impulse buy, and I should listen to that impulse all the time. This is wonderful, simply marvelous. Fruity and light and simply wonderful. I am working on a month long 50000 word writing project, and my writings are always powered by tea. This is the perfect pot to start off this novel. Yume has beautiful fruit and vanilla flavors, though I don’t get much of the rose out of it. Yum!

A Lupicia store recently opened here in Singapore so I went down to have a look. When I asked the manager (who is also the one who brought the brand here) for a recommendation for something that goes well with milk, this was one of her recommendation.

And it was certainly a good one! I first took a sip of it without adding anything, and was surprised by how sweet it was. It certainly goes well with milk, like what the manager said. It smelled sweet like butter cookies, so much so that I was surprised to see almond in the ingredients list.XD It’s currently my favourite tea to drink in the morning!

Love the grapefruit aroma that came from the leaves, however it lacked in taste. Maybe it’s suppose to taste that way, but it did remind me of the bitterness of eating a grapefruit. It’s pretty soothing to have it hot, but it tastes great iced as well!

[Backlog] – I am usually a big fan of Lupicia’s fruity blends, but there was something gross about this one. The peach seemed very artificial and the floral notes made it a bit more confusing — difficult to grasp what this tea was supposed to be! It was sweet, fake, floral, grassy. I was also not a fan of the green tea base, something about it was off. I really disliked this blend and dumped the rest of the cup.

Yesterday was unbelievably busy.
Work, a haircut, going to see The Fault in Our Stars, my boyfriends birthday party, and then home to collapse into bed.
Fun, but super busy, and no tea, out of my pot that morning.
Well, a reward of a beloved tea this morning.
This is, for the second time, my last pot of Loke Lani. But its unexpectedly come back into my life before, so it may not be again.
Sweet, and fragrant, I really like this, and it has good memories attached to it. And this quiet morning will become one of those.
Sipdown. Man, I’m am going to need more tea soon, at the rate I’ve been sipping down. I’m down to about 31 teas! (which at one time would have seemed very high, and now I’m thinking, is a rather small amount. Heh)

mj

The Fault in Our Stars was so good! It’d be hard to go to a party after seeing it though. I was definitely all red and puffy from crying.

Rosehips

Yep, I’m afraid thats what happened to me. I managed to have a lot of fun, though. Maybe the other party goers thought I had allergies?

Its going to be 107 today. It was 80 when I woke up this morning. Ugh. Its going to be a very, very unpleasant day. My air conditioner is already going. Ugh.
Well, a “hot weather” tea seemed appropriate.
I’m almost out of this lovely tea, again. I’ll miss it very much when its gone, but as this is the unexpected second time I’ve had it, it may not nessisarily be gone forever once I’ve drunk the last bit.
Its going to be hard to excercise this morning, but I’ll make it work. Best to get it over with, and then my lightest clothes, and hiding away from the hot, miserable world.

Tealizzy

Gonna be 104 here. :P Still planning to run, but if it’s 90 by the time we go, a walk will have to suffice. I hate when it gets this hot. I guess the good part is we’ll have the rest of the day to drink iced tea!!

TeaBrat

ugh, that sounds dreadful!

I recently moved to New York from Kansas City, and I become increasingly glad as we get closer to summer! I hope you guys find a way to beat the heat. :)

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and wishes yesterday. I’m doing just fine, and the neighborhood, while quiet, I think is coping as well. It used to be a street where the kids were always playing outside, but its quieted down this weekend. I cant blame them.
We only know a little bit more, but hopefully soon we get information from the police about what is going on.
So delicious tea. I require it, and am not going to mess about with only sub par tea today. Help me, floating cloud tea. Help!
Its delicious this morning, and just what the doctor ordered.

Sorry about what happened. Where do you live?

Sunday! Hurrah! I love being able to sleep in a bit, and then wake up, eat a leisurely breakfast, and drink a pot of tea.
Its still hot around here, so a “hot weather” tea is in order. What better than a hawaiian tea?
This is so very well balanced. Its got elements that could easily overpower eachother, but I find it to be mellow and delicious.
Now, to get to work on my resume. I’m looking to change jobs, which will never happen unless I do some applying!
