drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

Cold brewed this one overnight as I think it was born to be an iced tea, and boy is it good! Like drinking sweet cucumber water. I almost feel like it can hydrate me enough to try running after work. SUPER refreshing. And it’s a gorgeous day which I’ve wasted all day inside at this stupid desk, so I’m gonna go for that run anyway.

drank Peach Cobbler by Tazo
98 tasting notes

Shmiracles got this tea when we were at the beach, and it saved me most days from complete and utter dehydration. Still is. I cold brew a bag in an infuser bottle overnight, and then enjoy it while reading in the sun at lunchtime. Awesome. I think the peach flavor is really strong, and the scent, plus there’s apple & cinnamon. It’s really nice. I know what I’m going to be doing the rest of the summer…

I like that the Tazo blends use natural flavoring, so even though the flavor may be strong, at least you know that it’s not a science experiment—with you as the guinea pig!!! lol

Yes, it’s not that fake sweet peach smell or taste – it’s the real deal. Don’t mess with peaches!!

drank Lemony Gunpowder by Harney & Sons

Oh goodness, I oversteeped this so much. Basically I just forgot I was steeping. IDEK how long. Well, I drank it anyway! The lemony covers up the gunpowdery, so this isn’t as bitter as it could be. Happy Monday workday!

drank Apricot by Carytown Teas
98 tasting notes

I have apricot tea and apricot tartlette cookies, and my whole desk smells like apricots. Yay, vacation tomorrow with Shmiracles! South Beach ahoy. Essentials for the beach: Kindle filled with slash fic & Thomas Harris & poetry, Hannibal & beach music playlists, Timolino, ceviche. I did make an awesome playlist, I have to say – all euro synth and goth poetry and cheeky humor. I’ll add you to my instagram? I’m giraffodil there.

OMGsrsly

I’ll add you to my instagram! :)

I seriously loved this tea. It made my morning! When I first smelled it, I noticed the grapefruit, and then when I steeped it, I noticed the slight smokiness. Really smooth and balanced to taste. Earls are my favorite, and this was a special one. I always can tell if I love something when I cradle the cup in my hands and savor it, even if it’s a styrofoam cup at work. I didn’t want to drink the last of this, because we don’t have any more, but I’ve added it to my wish list. Thanks, Cavo!

This one is always so light. It’s sunny outside, so that’s okay. Probably one of my faves from the box, though I am partial to the glow cloud… Hey, I’m not sitting in a bathroom stall at work, drinking this, and crying this afternoon! Plus plus.

Thanks, Cavo! This brings back memories, though I haven’t actively read and written Destiel since 2010, it was my first SPN pairing (which my Sam/Dean friends have graciously forgiven me for). The cinnamon and cocoa was nice and soothing this morning. I like Cara McGee’s stuff anyway. Also, fandom.

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

This was hard to make because it was SO CHUNKY, but it was very very nice and super refreshing – even helped my constant dehydration problem. I think I still got some black tea in there, though it seemed like just chunks of veggies and some other plants I’ve never even heard of. Lovely for drinking on the porch on a Sunday. And reading fics such as these:

Because they’re clever and not so OOC it’s creepy like bad-creepy. I’m also reading Red Dragon, because it’s adorable so far (and hopefully not weirdly anti-gay, like only 1981 can be in that special 1981 kinda way, though I think I made the right decision and it’s gonna be fun as hell), and I won’t admit to how many Hannibal eps I rewatched this weekend, because, life crisis.

drank Apricot by Carytown Teas

I was all, I need some Chinese black tea to help me with my life crisis. And Carytown was all, we use that in most of our black tea blends, like Apricot and Black Rose. And I was all, I knew I loved you guys for a reason. I also got apricot tea biscuits and stuff to make my lunches, but I forgot them all at home this morning. Life crisis.

Favorite! FAVORITE tea! I splurged while shopping on Friday and kinda freaking out. I was a little too dehydrated to enjoy as much as I should… for the past few weeks. Can you tell I’m having a life crisis?

I didn’t realize this has lemongrass. So it’s citrusy and lemongrassy and flowery. I am a fan. I can’t afford to start my full fledged tea cabinet, but I’ll add to it a bit at a time.
