This was a blast from the past today. I’m doing some 12-hour (incredibly slow, boring) shifts at the office conveniently located near a DT, and have taken to popping in for a to-go cup. The problem is that I never know what I want; I have pretty much any of the teas I have any interest in drinking at home. And I feel silly paying $2.63 or whatever for a cup of things I have tins of. But, I have to do it. It’s just too damn convenient.

Anyway, I haven’t had this one in ages though I often pause over it when choosing what to drink. I think it was in my first-ever DT order, so we go way back. And it just jumped out at me today. I knew it was the tea for me. When the employee opened the canister to scoop mine out, the scent was incredibly powerful and had me excited to get back to my desk for some quality time with that turquoise paper cup. It didn’t disappoint. It’s as good as I remember it being. I think I might need to indulge in some fresher stock, as my love for this one has been renewed. So sweet! So creamy.

I too have some of all the teas I’m interested in. Now I only pop in to DT when there’s a new tea and wave off the sales people’s attempts to sell me other things. I relly do want to try the birthday cake ones though!

Yeah! DT employees have seemed rather into up- and other-selling lately. By other-selling, I’m referring to last week when I went in just for a cup of Glitter and Gold and she seemed really disappointed that I didn’t want to try Hot Lips instead.

Wow, that really makes me sad. And glad my store hasn’t dared try that crap on me. I’d be so upset about it.
