If I hide from the Monday, the Monday will go away. Right?

If the Monday will go away, will the November?

As long as I get Thanksgiving, November can go away, too.

My eleventy-eleventh note! Didn’t even realize I’d broken one hundred.

Made two cups in the Breville…yes, I know it’s for loose-leaf, but for two cups, there’s plenty of room in the basket for the bags. And it worked really well.

I’ve been brewing this with water that was too hot. I’ve never temped the water before, just guestimated the temp. This cup is fresh, clean-tasting, light. I can taste more of the guava as well, and the pineapple is even more delicious. Previous cups have been heavier, denser, but this one…it’s crisp and bright.

Put a tea with pineapple in front of me, and I’m a happy camper. This one is no exception to that rule. The pineapple is crisp, and the guava flavor gives it a nice tang. The fruit doesn’t overpower the taste of the white tea, either. A very good tea for summer; it’s also good iced.

Just a small bit of green tea to get me through the afternoon here at work. I really like the fact that I can taste the goji in this one (as compared to Zhena’s goji cacao, where I have yet to find it). This is my last bag of this I have (only bought a travel tin to try it out), and I’m not sure if I’ll get more. Chances are no, since there’s so many other teas out there that I want to try first. If it were on sale, though, chances are that it would end up back in my cupboard.

Today’s one of those days at work. You know, the kind where you can get nothing you want to get done accomplished because the phone is constantly ringing? Yup, it’s that kind of morning. So I needed a happy, yummy tea to both calm me down and give me a bit of energy. Green tea it is!

I can taste more of the goji berries in this tea than the raspberry, and both more than the green tea (which seems to be common for Republic of Tea greens, or is that just me?). This is sweet and just the perfect shade of tart.

Think it’ll sweeten my disposition whilst answering the phones? Yeah, I don’t think so, either.

I also love this tea brewed hot and then chilled. One of the few iced teas that I like without sweetening it! I consider this tea one of my top ten of all time.

I don’t usually like fruit teas, but with a 2 minute steep time, this one hit the spot, hot and unsweetened. It had an almost magically perfect balance between the fruit and tea flavors.

Actually had this earlier today as well as having it as my last work cup. Sweet, light, and fruity. Delish!

This bag is back to normal. Not sure why/how that last cup ended up tasting so different from all the other times I’ve had it, but this is back to the way it’s supposed to taste!

Okay, today I’m tasting the nettle, and I’m not so sure I’m enjoying it as much. Seems more herbal and supplement-like. Perhaps this bag is off/has a different concentration of herbs than the other did?

So I’m not completely out of this tea…I have a few bags here at work. I accidentally ended up brewing it for about 12 minutes. I know better than to not set an alarm. This doesn’t suffer from overbrewing, though.

When I got this out to make a small pot tonight, I went to pull out two bags. There were only 3 left. So having a slightly bigger pot, and have one less tea in my cupboard.

I love the key lime paired with the hibiscus. It’s sweet and not too tart. I’ll probably end up getting some more, but may end up getting the Vanilla Apple version first (since it’s the only one that I haven’t had).
