Drinking this while fighting with the scanner at work…Caffeine much need – the person who lives below me has taken to blasting music at 7am for the past few days. Yes my alarm was set for 7:15 but I wanted my 15 minutes! Grr!
Anyway about the tea. Its okay. Since I have no control over the water temp sometimes this tea comes out rich with a wonderful honey note and sometimes a little flat and dry. Today is a flat and dry day, but like I said I need the caffeine. And I have lots of lovely tea to drink when I get home and lots of lovely new tea-ware to do it in!
So I wasn’t planning on buying this this morning but I guess I was so tired that I just went into automatic mode – haha. Oh well. It was quite good. I actually brought my own mug and tea to work today which is what I was planning on having first thing in the morning, but I am here for a while longer so I am sure I will find the time to have my own tea later!
I keep debating whether this tea is actually the tea I am buying or whether I am miss logging. Regardless it is a bagged darjeeling tea from either lipton or twinnings but I am not sure which and I always forgot to look and then I think I remember and then I am not sure – ugh! Okay rant over.
Regardless of what brand this tea is it is very nice to have in the morning to wake me up for work or class. For a little while the water where I buy it was a little bit cooler and the tea had this wonderful honey quality that I miss but oh well. It is still yummy!
Also today when I was buying this I noticed there were these odd little things that looked like ketcup packets but they were lemon juice packets – has anyone ever tried these? I was curious but I don’t drink lemon in hot tea.
Looking through steepster trying to find my tea really made me want more tea but I have to be strong and conserve my second cup as I am at work for many more hours -haha.
Yay my Darjeeling was back today!!! Best part of the school year!!!!
Had my usual cup of this from the student center on my way to work today.
I had this again today on the way to a meeting. Helped keep out the misty damp grossness that is the world today.
I love getting this tea on the way to class or work. It has such good flavor and a nice amount of caffeine too!
Just what I needed for my 9:15 meeting this morning. This is one of my favorite black teas. It just has wonderful flavor. It is nice and strong without being bitter.
