Seven swans a swimming tea! Usually I am not a big Ceylon fan but I knew if I underleafed and made sure to pay attention to how long I was steeping and it turned out well.

It has a very thick mouthfeel which is kind of hard to get used to for a first cup of the day (ugh 4pm already? haven’t felt good all day thanks temperature bouncing). It’s somewhat brisk but not bitter, so I’d say it’s malty with just the right amount of sweetness.

btw I’m going through my tea again so I’ll be selling tea yet again. I need to stop buying in general but my discount needs to stop working at Teavana for that to happen. It’s also involving tossing a lot that I think can’t possibly be good anymore which is really sad. No more buying. Yesterday was the last day of buying, says the person who bought almost 2 pounds of tea UGH.

Discounts make buying so tempting! :-)

yeah, if only they allowed employee discounts on top of the sale discounts I would have probably ended up with more. Somehow at Starbucks itself this only meant I bought two cocoa kits and one was a gift anyway but had we had more stuff on clearance, it wouldn’t have been pretty…I think it worked out to a 65% discount

lol! Probably good they don’t give the employee discount too then, but that is a good savings regardless! Crazy to resist! ;-)
