drank Pear Caramel by Leland Tea Co

The caramel in this blend is the most noticeable flavor, and it really starts to come out as the brew cools down.
By the end of my cup this morning it was a warm and lightly caramel-y blend of deliciousness.

So I have clearly had this tea. The bag is open, and its clearly not as new as it could be. I just have not logged it ever.
And, upon this cup, I can see why. Its a basic breakfast blend, a bit strong on the malt, but not overwhelming in any sense of the word. Its sturdy, robust, solid, and fairly basic. Perfect work tea!
It now sits on my desk, to be sipped on during those mornings where getting up seemed to be worthy of some sort of medal. I think it will do very well there.

Its going to be a hot day. In my neck of the woods, each day this week has been 10 degrees hotter than the day before. We are now in the 90’s, bleh.
So its prime fruity tea season! And this was nice, with a juicy grape flavor to it today. I’ve got to watch the steep carefully, or it can turn bitter, but I timed it well today.

We’re there in MO, too. Quite an adjustment—we had a mild summer last year, so these 100+ heat indices are kinda beastly.

Meanwhile in Northern England… rain, wind, and some more rain for good measure.

Come visit and we shall roast and toast you! (Except in my office where the AC is set to “frostbite.”)

drank Napa Blanc by Lupicia
2068 tasting notes

How long has this been in my cupboard? An embarrassingly long time. I can’t even remember. Well over a year!
Well, that’s no good on a lot of fronts. Its gotta get drunk, out of my cupboard and away from my life.
So its the new designated “other” tea, my work afternoon drink.
Today it was mostly hot water with a vegetal greenishness to it. None of the Blanc flavors advertised, I’m afraid.
Ah well. This is entirely my own fault, and I shall drink what I have brewed.
All the more reason to get this sipped down quickly!

drank Lady Grey by Lovejoy's Tea Room
2068 tasting notes

I have no right to be as tired as I am today. I mean, really. I had a lovely nights worth of sleep, and the weather is mild, what am I so exhausted for?
Obviously the only solution is tea, and after a lovely cup of this I am feeling much more human and ready to face the day.
This is lovely on a warm day, the sparkle of citrus really made it pop. Also helpful when you are tired!

The only solution. Clearly.

I’m near the bottom of this tin, which I’m more disappointed with than I expected to be. It was very light, fruity and refreshing this morning, which was a lovely way to wake up!

drank Mulled Wine by DAVIDsTEA
2068 tasting notes

Ha! I am an unstoppable sipdown machine!
The last cup of this was rather underleafed, making it mostly hot water with a hint of something musky. I’d be more disappointed, except that even at full brew this never really rose above hot water with a hint of something status.
After far too long in my cupboard this disappointing tea is gone! Hurrah!
Sipdown!
Now I must decide on more meh teas to bring into the office, and let the office work its sipdown enhancing powers…

drank Royal English Breakfast by Teavana
2068 tasting notes

There was a choice this morning- do I overleaf this cup, to fit all the remaining tea into this final drink, or do I have two slightly weaker versions of this tea to kill it off? One cup won it!
Final thoughts. Malty, dry, generally unimpressive and I am not sorry to see it go. A very happy sipdown!

I had a really nice weekend, with both World Wide Knit in Public day, and also a high tea meet-up with some old friends.
Also it rained!
Alas, the weekend is over, and its back to work I go, where I have already accidentally printed a 178 page document that I did not mean to print.
Sigh.
This was my morning cup, which was the smooth and almost chocolate tasting cup I have come to expect/ enjoy. Not much left of it, but it coaxed me through the morning with great style.

I am so glad it is Friday, I cannot even tell you.
This week has not marked the demise of this tea, but I suspect I shall kill it off next week. Hurrah!
A light steep time helps with the heavy malt of this blend, making it better, but it will never really be anything I like.

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.
