I’ve got the tree up and the lights on it! The house is still a disaster, but there’s always tomorrow, right?

I saw the tasting notes on this, and it sounded so good that I had to order a sampler of it. For those who don’t know, Octavia has changed the name of this to “Chocolate Mint”.

After a mild tea spill (still had the vacuum out, so clean-up was very quick), I had a pot of this. It’s very nice: the rooibos is more of a background flavor, the peppermint is nice and strong, and the chocolate and vanilla round out the cup and make you feel like this really is an actual dessert. The taste is very similar to a York peppermint patty, or even a Thin Mint. Very, very good! I only purchased a sample, but I would definitely invest in a full tin!

Wow you put your tree up before Thanksgiving?


I know, right? Actually, it’s the first year I’ve put a tree up since 2007 (and that year, my best friend put it up). I’m in the holiday spirit for some reason…usually I’m all bah-humbug about it all.


I’m in the Christmas spirit all year round but decorating pre-Thanksgiving is weird lol. I heard canned Christmas music in a store on Tues!


I am currently in the process of making ornies for an art swap that I’m in… it’s a 12 days of xmas swap. fun fun fun!


What’s an ornie?




Yay for homemade ornaments! They’re the best kind.

Another SIPDOWN for today! BUT…I will miss this one!!! Sigh…
Upping the rating! This has a lot to it but it all works and I can pick out each ingredient but they all work really well together. Nothing is over powering the others. This time around I can identify the apple which I couldn’t do during my first cuppa. The chocolate is very nice and I swear I can taste orange in there…maybe it’s just ‘leftover’ from my holiday Orange Chocolate phase…LOVE Orange Chocolate! YUM! Anyhow…the Vanilla is really smooth and yummy in this and the rooibos is a little lighter than most but still stands its ground. The mint is wonderful! Gentle but terrific! LOVE THIS!

This is really yummy. The mint does not overpower the other ingredients, there is a nice balance of chocolate, peppermint and vanilla. Nicely sweet. A really good dessert tea or just for a late-night “snack” that won’t take up residence on the hips.

It has an invigorating taste but is also quite soothing. A very nice rooibos blend that reminds me a bit of a blend that I created years ago – mint chocolate chip!
