Honestly, someone needs to create a drug and call it “waking up just isn’t so bad when you’re doing it on a Friday morning” because it’s the truth. I slept soundly last night for the first night in a while, and had a delicious bagel and cream cheese breakfast with Mr. keychange this morning. I was actually debating between this and dt’s blueberry jam, but Mr. keychange rightly pointed out that blueberry tea probably wouldn’t accompany an herb and garlic cream cheese bagel all that well. I bet the jury’s still out on that one, but I chose this one anyway. The more I drink it, the more I get a general sense of creaminess, instead of a specific vanilla taste. I’m mostly ok with that, although I think I was hoping for more of an authentic vanilla flavour. That being said, this is probably the only EGC I can handle, as I find many of them to be a bit too heavy on the bergamot.

Despite the original high I felt this morning, I’m crashing, and wish I’d had a second cup of tea before leaving the house this morning. Oh well: up next, Rose Scented!

Oh you’ve inspired me, I think I’m going to have a rose tea today as well! If it makes you feel better, I’m feeling the same way this morning. Getting out of bed was not what I wanted to do this morning, I wanted to be snuggled under the covers until at LEAST 9 am

I know. getting out of bed takes unbelievable effort for some reason, but some people seem to just spring up and go! LOL. And yes, enjoy a good rose tea today—I’m loving my rose scented at the moment!

Usually I am that annoying spring out of bed person… today though not so much :)

My husband is the “spring up and go” kind of person… He springs up out of bed every morning at 5 am, even on the weekends. Sometimes earlier. Me on the other hand… I’m not an early morning person. Getting up before sunrise takes effort… huge effort.

keychange

Oh yeah. I mean, I’m known to set my alarm a good half hour before I actually need to be up, because I need to get up slowly and languish.

OMGsrsly

I have two alarms and if I’m feeling up to it I’ll lay in bed and play with social media on my phone before actually getting up. The only way this would be better is if I had tea to accompany this, but I’d have to invest in a Breville. Or a Butler, I guess.

Bio

Well, it’s been slightly over six months since I’ve joined steepster, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about this community. Like many of you, I began my foray into the world of loose-leaf tea by discovering David’s Tea, and although I’ve ventured out and have discovered many other companies that I’m extremely fond of, there are still many of David’s teas that I hold close to my heart and I will always appreciate it as a starting point for my journey.

As for my preferences, I tend to prefer bold black tea, flavoured and unflavoured alike, and I almost always take my blacks with cream and sugar. This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy a good, flavoured white though, and I’m slowly making my way through the incredibly confusing world of oolongs and greens. I am also not a fan of rooibos, although I am starting to suspect green rooibos may be ok, but you know how it is: when you’ve decided you detest a certain ingredient, you’ll notice it everywhere—perhaps even where it doesn’t exist!

Things other than tea: I’m engaged to be married to my best friend, and feel like the richest woman on the planet because of it. I am also a veracious reader, and I also happen to have an obsession with fragrances, and have amassed quite a collection, although it pales in comparison to some collections out there! As a result of this obsession, I also follow several fragrance blogs, and am always up for a chat about scent. I’m also almost completely blind, and this does indeed mean that I come complete with a guide dog, who unlike me, hales from the sunny California campus of Guide dogs for the Blind. I think I’ve rambled on long enough, but if there’s anything you’d like to know or if you just feel like chatting to someone, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.
