drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
744 tasting notes

26/02/2013
so yeah, i’ve kinda been absent lately.
the seasonal affective depression thing has kicked in, and marathon training is a struggle and a time suck (though good when it’s good!), and i’ve been escaping by reading too much fanfic and slash, and i’ve also been trying to cut down on my caffeine (gasp!).
no more than 3 cups a day. and only in the morning. but i used to just drink it whenever i wanted and it was heavenly.

but now i’m trying to come back, and i’m excited about the new david’s teas spring collection. and the eventual turn of the clocks. and maybe even being able to leave the house wearing only 1 hoodie instead of 2.
and i swear i’m gonna send Courtney that box of tea samples this week! at least i feel like it might happen this week…

i’m surprised this tea didn’t stand out the first time i tried it.
it’s touchingly subtle, and yet brave at the same time.
super balanced.
a mellow sugar and clove sipper. and it smells like no other tea i’ve had yet.
the sparkles are a gimmick, and if the tea wasn’t unique they wouldn’t matter,
but because this tea DOES feel like somewhat of a special loner to me, the glitter just makes it that much more romantic.

i’m gonna save my last cup worth to have on Xmas day as i watch Doctor Who (after a cuppa weeping angel of course).

Haha! I’m waiting patiently, no worries :)

I didn’t sleep last night due to fanfic, though there was sadly no slash (at least not yet, it’s an unfinished fic). HP/Avengers.

Shmiracles

haha omg starfevre! i know what you mean. it’s so hard to go to bed when there is so much wonderful fic to read! just one more story. just one more hour. just just just. (my sister is my curator so i never have to read bad fic, which i am lucky to have, because bad fic makes me the saddest person ever and reading it hurts my soul.)

Starfevre

Ah yes, badfic. When I’m in a ‘searching for new fanfic’ mode, I end up reading a lot of badfic usually. There was a particularly scarring mpreg with no warnings that I read last week. Just all kinds of not good.

Shmiracles

bwahahahah ikr! hilarious. blerg.

OMGsrsly

Ahh yes. When authors don’t warn for mpreg or major character death. :)

Cavocorax

Oh wow. :P I haven’t spent enough time on AO3 so I didn’t know what mpreg is but google showed me. DNW!!! /0\

Shmiracles

haha surprise!

Starfevre

I’m more bothered by unannounced major character death. I’ve stopped reading actual book novels right in the middle because someone I liked died. I can never pick up the book again. Bothers me tremendously. Mpreg is just briefly mentally scarring. I did it again last night though, slept only 4 hours due to HP/LOTR

Shmiracles

is that your current pairing? a crossover?
i’m all about thilbo, or baggenshield, or whatever weirdo smushed up combo word for Thorin and Bilbo there is now. and yes i stay up waaaay toooo laaate
(also my goodness do i wish there was some decent Green Arrow stuff though!!)

Starfevre

It was a crossover. On fanfiction.net (hangs head in shame). In my defense I only read the stories with over 500 reviews…

Shmiracles

naw that’s the way to do it :) helps weed out the …weeds.
my sister has taught me much :)

OMGsrsly

Starfevre, I totally hear you about novels and characters dying. I mean, ghost stories where you expect it are one thing (oi, paranormal romances!), but surprise!death in an otherwise amazing story sucks.
