As you are aware, things are very, very stressful right now.
Today is to involve nothing but soothing things, and I will start my day off with this cup of autumn bliss.

This year I am really digging this tea. It is Hot Cinnamon Spice touched with a little mellow sweetness, and I have been moving towards it just about every morning. It’s giving me a lively little jolt, just what the doctor ordered.

I am so tempted to try this one again. I had a sampke years ago. I am loving the Apple Cinnamon Chai from Cuppageek.

Sipdown!
This was a perfectly lovely black apple tea. I brewed it a touch too weak for my last cup (my down darn fault), but it was still sweet and apple-y and nice.
As I am in the mood for all the apple teas right now, this was well recieved.
I should be getting my next yarn and tea club shipment soon! I cannot wait to see it!

First cup of the morning, and a lovely one, too.
No tea quite encapsulates autumn as Boston does, for me anyway.
We’ve had a few cooler days, lately, which has been balm to the soul. Alas, it’s not to last, but I’ll take it while we can!

I over steeped this today. Poor tea, it’s not your fault that I was bumbling around in a haze.
The over steep brought out a layer of bitterness from the base, but I didn’t get that in my last cup of this tea, so I can only conclude it’s my fault.
No worries, I will try again!

I must have had this before…. yes? But Steepster is not forthcoming with previous tasting notes, so maybe not? It seems impossible that I have not, but here we are!
This is like a version of hot cinnamon spice that is a touch more mellow. I like it, but can’t say I have a whole lot of the apple flavor. But not that I say that, I do get a very strong sense of apple cider-ness.
In any case, so far, so good!

So I have signed myself up for a yarn and tea club. Every month the local yarn shop and the local tea shop (who are neighbors, and who are one block away from a fabulous used bookstore, making this a very expensive area for me) team up to send some yarn and a new tea to me. I hit “add to cart” so fast I’m surprised my mouse survived.
This was the tea for September, and it smells wonderful. There is apple. There are spices. There are raisins. It smells magnificent.
Each of the times I’ve brewed it so far, it’s brewed up rather paler than it smells. Next cup I’m going to try a bit more leaf, and see where that gets me!

What a strange and specific overlap of interests they are marketing to with that team up!

Sounds like a danger zone to me!

I’m doing the thing I do where I have alllll the fall flavors to try and magic cold weather into being.
This is mellow and yummy. It’s still going to be 100 tomorrow.
Sigh.

Oh thank goodness, my H&S order arrived last night, so I was able to brew some of my beloved Boston for breakfast. Yum!
This, to me, is autumn in a cup. This is what I think of when I think of the quintessence of fall.
Its going to get hot again in my neck of the woods (sob, sigh, wail), but for this morning, a calming and centering cup of Boston!

Veronica

This is one of my favorite fall teas, too. I need to place an order!

A more delicate steep time was a good choice. The base can get a bit bitter. But I didn’t get more pumpkin flavor out of this.
More tinkering to come!

Love the SS tea names!

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
