Had a cup of this a few nights ago, and its very nice indeed. Its like a herbal chai, which makes its name seem extra appropriate.
Warming, spicy, and just plain nice on a cold night.

I have, once again, acquired the wild eyes and laser focus of a woman on a mission. A week ago I was preparing to accept defeat. There was no way that I could achieve my goal of 40 teas in my cupboard before Black Friday.
But some minor victories in the sipdown arena have, once again, brought me back to the brink of obsession, and I am going to drink tea for glory!
Or something like that.
What all this hyperbole is trying to say is, I can see the bottom of the tin. I might be able to get it all drunk down before next Thursday. I am within a teacups throw of my goal.
And it would be darn nice to hit that goal.

Making progress, as this blend was my morning cup, and a sipdown!
I quite liked this one, it was warm and, well, cozy. I may very well pick up some more in future!
But for today, another notch of the Black Friday Sipdown goals.

I’ve had this a few times now, not because I’ve ever bought it, or ordered it in a restaurant, but because Smith sends it along with any order I seem to do.
Well, after a brief steep time I find it light, with an almost lemony mintiness to it.
And, its a cheap shot sipdown, as I have now knocked one of my numbers down with a single cup of tea.

Another perfect day for drinking this blend.
I am starting to see the bottom of the tin! Whee! Maybe this one will be drunk by Black Friday, after all…..

Still raining, and I am feeling happy. Rain is my favorite weather, so if I wake up in the middle of the night and hear it falling, then I am a very happy camper.
This seemed like the perfect wooly sweater of a tea to have this morning.
Also, less thematically, I’m getting low on it, so it might be one of my black Friday sipdowns, if I work at it.
In the meantime, nom.

This is the perfect weather for this tea. Its raining, there is a chill in the air, and a faint scent of woodsmoke. This tea compliments that atmosphere to perfection.
Sluuurp. Sigh. Ahh.
Proper tea drinking weather!

drank Smokejumper Ginger by The Tea Spot

Tea of the morning.
I can’t believe I’ve only drunk this once before. Can that possibly be true? Maybe, if I am honest. How upsetting!
Well, a sturdy mug of this was the way to go today, as its rainy out there, and something smokey and spicy is just the ticket.
I am glad I trusted my instincts for a shorter steeping time today. This is good, with a warm sweetness from the ginger at the edge of the lapsang smoke, but I think too long a brew time would render it almost undrinkable. So I had a short steep (around 3 1/2 minutes) and enjoyed my cup very much.

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.
