And a celebratory “my boss now has to deal with the grumpy people” cup of tea.
I feel much better about everything, let me tell you.

So my boss was out of the office yesterday, during all the grumpy people, and today when he came in we had our meeting, I explained what all had happened and everyones reactions, and he advised me to relax, because I’d done right, and he would handle it from there.
I love my boss. He’s great.
That said, I am still going to guzzle the tea. This week has given me a headache, and I intend to keep the flow of calming, life affirming tea going.

Today is going to be crazy, and probably unpleasant. Not only do we have to interact with all the rude and unpleasant people again, but there are a million and one things to do, and its possible our phones are not working. Eep.
I am feeling a bit stressed about the day, to say the least.
So I brewed up this, one of my very favorite blends, to seek solace in its fruity, honey’d depths.
It was a very good start. I shall have frequent cups of tea throughout the day, to help me find balance and calm in this probably very hectic day.


I tried this last week and I can see why it is one of your favorites!

What a frustrating day at work. Ugh, it was just one problem after another, including some very rude people. (Why do people do this? We are all working! The circumstance is frustrating for everyone! Argh!)
So, after a particularly frustrating interaction I made up a cup of this, which tasted nice and helped refocus to the good things in life. This day will end, all will be well, and I will probably forget all about this in a month. Probably, anyway. Argh. Is it only Tuesday?


I’m so sorry you had such a crummy day at work. I’ve always wondered that about people too, why they make the situation even worse with their attitudes.


I hope your week and the people in it improve and pick up the pace from here on out. Rude people can drag out the time to unbearable proportions.


Wouldn’t it be nice if everybody could just play together in the sandbox nicely?

How is it only Tuesday? Surely I have lived longer than it only being Tuesday? Surely it is Thursday, or better yet, Friday? Yes? Yes?
No? Drat.
I made this as my morning pot, and as I drank it I considered that if I’d ever actually had rum I’d have a better idea if this lived up to the name. I’m not much of a drinker, so I really don’t think I’ve ever had rum.
But this tea is nice, malty with a hint of something fudgy in it. I liked it a great deal this morning, where it made me feel cozy and warm.

Its been a frustrating Monday. Blargh.
So I bribed myself with a cup of tea after I made a difficult call, and this was that tea.
Its a reward in that its a sipdown, and I have been longing for this sipdown. This has been in my cupboard for too long, and now its gone, and I will not bring it back.
I’ve hit that Harney & Sons problem, though, were the tin is so darn pretty! What do I do with it? Argh, H&S tins are just so cute, but I never have anything to do with them, once I’ve drunk the tea.


Those tins are great hooks, aren’t they? I’ve started using them to display artificial flowers on the front pouch and around the house. They also make nice pencil holders at work (I have the birthday tin on my desk for stray pencils now). Those tins are just too pretty to toss out and I have to admit I want to order a couple of brews just because the tins look pretty!

drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons

As stated, I could not sleep last night, so I am worn rather thin this morning.
Nothing for it but the Queen! I seem to turn to her especially on days like today, where I am feeling exhausted and fragile. She is a lovely tea to have on such days.
Now, to not fall asleep until designated bedtime.


Long live the Queen! She has pulled me through many a hard time. The song “Good Life” by One Republic is forever associated with this tea for me.

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

I had a cup of this last night, which proved to be a mistake. Not due to its flavors, but due to the fact that I had it too late in the day, and it kept me up way too late.
Blargh. Lesson learned. Decaf or herbal after dinner only!

After completing my writing yesterday I rewarded myself with a cup of this.
Its no longer the dream I remember it being, but that’s alright. I enjoyed it none the less, even if its not as swoon worthy as I remember.
Its a sipdown! Wahoo! My sipdown mania continues!

I always perk up when I open the bag of this. It smells like cherries and cream, and it would be delicious, if it tasted like it smelled.
But it always brews up tart and a bit bitter, as if the unpleasant aspects of cherries and tartness (sour, bitter) showed up and left all the good parts elsewhere.

Too bad. Hate when that happens.

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.
