I’m in need of a good comfort tea today – I’ve been wallowing a whole lot lately and it’s starting to get pathetic. So hopefully this will blow my mind and make me forget where I am.

The smell of this was divine. It was a whole lot of burnt sugar and caramel. Now, I much prefer caramel to chocolate; it is probably my favorite sweet out there. So you can see why I chose this tea today.

Right away, I taste the oolong. It’s one of those nice buttery, creamy oolongs, so it is complemented very nicely by the caramel. The caramel doesn’t come out and assault your taste buds, but rather it very gently massages them into submission until you’re lost in the taste. The longer I hold the tea in my mouth, the stronger the caramel becomes. It’s not the sickeningly sweet caramel you would pour over ice cream; it’s almost like there’s nuts added.

This doesn’t come right out and scream “Desert Tea!” It isn’t sweet enough, so it’s perfect to have around as a comfort tea. Which is what I needed right now. I bet after a couple more infusions I’ll be wondering why I was ever in a funk in the first place.


This has nothing to do with the tea, but it just started absolutely pouring. Like, the kind of storm that sends my poor dog running under my bed with her tail between her legs. It was perfectly nice out a minute ago. The weather is so weird here…

EDIT: Oh, lovely. Now it’s hailing, too. And raining sideways.

Oh, I better go finish mowing the lawn…we’re supposed to get the rain in a couple of hours supposedly. Texas weather is a beast, huh?

Blech, wind rain and hail! Sounds like a day to just cuddle up with a book and some tea! Feel better soon!

::Hugs:: This note brightened my day — I hope that this tea brightened yours! I’ve been craving this since I had my sample and it’s on top of my “must order after I finish my GM sampler.” I enjoyed living vicariously through you even if it was for a moment.

And I love “The caramel doesn’t come out and assault your taste buds, but rather it very gently massages them into submission until you’re lost in the taste.” ::sigh:: That captures it perfectly. :)
