I’ve been drinking the stuffin’ out of this tin … waking up craving it. This morning (l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ng weary week at work) I kicked it up with a spoonful of dark-chocolate Oren’s Daily Roast Cocoa Creme. Now it’s nearly strawberry coffee.

In celebration of sending a fistful of finished files to my editor (finito! fantastic! fwhew!) I made myself a celebratory cuppa—with 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint and a daub of chamomile. Faux foxtrot!

drank Pure Green Tea by Twinings

Weather has been such that I’ve been keeping a warm cup in hand constantly, and as a result, caffeinated myself into a fizz over the weekend. Trying to scale it down a bit, and this is a nice, office-friendly, error-resistant departure from full black caffeinated.

Saying goodbye to this one…klutzily knocked over the tin last night, which left me just enough for a farewell mug this morning. By far the nicest, gentlest ginger-peach combo I’ve sampled. One more thanks to TeaBird, who originally sent me this treat.

Oh, my sympathies on knocking over the tin. I did that woth some prized Assam not long ago and nearly cried.

Full review up at http://www.itsallabouttheleaf.com/1816/tea-review-lochan-tea-glenburn-estate-2010-first-flush-darjeeling/ So far I am wholly impressed by the quality of the Lochan samples I’ve had the opportunity to try. Good stuff.

drank Hazelnut Truffle by Tea Forte

Many of the chocolate-based teas I’ve experienced lose their chocolate-iness after they sit very long. Took me a while to get through my sample cup because I was trying to wax poetic over it for www.itsallabouttheleaf.com, and even after it was stone cold, it still smelled like a really good box of chocolates.

Sticking with my previous opinion…there’s nothing absolutely outstanding about this purchase-in-bulk tea, but its cheap, basic, and goof-resistant. A solid pantry tea.

drank Peppermint by Lipton

Judging from the package design, what I’m currently drinking must be old (but the whole thing was still shrink wrapped). It’s gentle mint, not sharp, but what I need for a no-caffeine midafternoon perk-up.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
