Todays sleepiness is not unexplained- I was at a play last night with my brother, and while we were driving back he said “isn’t it past your bedtime?” it was 10:30, and yes. I am an old woman. 10:30 on a weeknight is late!
So I’m a bit sleepy, and its gonna be a long day. That’s ok. I’ve got tea to help me!
Listening to my own advice, I brewed this for less time today, and received the silly, candy-like cup that is what I look for when I grab this brew.
Ahh. That’s the ticket.

Sipdown!
This has been a nice addition to my cupboard. It might come back at some point- I would certainly consider it.
It has been a pleasantly currant-y cup, and I’ve enjoyed it!

I am very sleepy today, which is odd. I don’t have cause to be, I got to bed at a reasonable time and slept well.
Ah well. That’s why they invented tea, isn’t it?
Todays steep came out pretty darn well, if I do say so myself. It was a decent cup of vanilla.

When sleepiness descends without known cause, I blame either hormones or barometric pressure. Works for me.

or allergies :)

Evol Ving Ness

Yes, yes, or inflammation.

I blame Lionsgate :P

I love Lupicia teas. They are fun, and the tins can be gorgeous, and I generally like their flavor profiles. I’m a fruity and floral kinda person, so their blends often work for me.
But their black tea blends can be super tricky. If you get them off by a minute then they can be bitter, sour, or just meh. When you get the timing right, though, they are delightful.
Which is my way of saying that I steeped this too long this morning, so while its a tea I love, I didn’t love this particular cup.

drank Melon Oolong by Lupicia

Backlogged from yesterday-
Gosh, its been a while since I had this. What took me so long? Its such a lovely tea for the summertime, light, crisp, fresh. A perfect accompaniment to an afternoon knitting and watching British Crime Dramas.
Yum.

Alas Monday! Why do you darken my door? I shall drink a bold and cheerful tea to lessen your cruel impact.
This remains tart and pleasant, even though I managed to overleaf my cup this morning. What can I say, I was too tired to pay any proper attention.
Ok, Monday. Lets do this.

I have had such busy weekends of late. Yesterday, even, was much busier than I wanted!
But I have a quiet day today, where I can run errands, and can get a lot of tea drinking and knitting going (with the air conditioner going full blast).
So I started the day with a completely wonderful breakfast of toast and fresh figs with honey, and a pot of this.
Ahh. I am in heaven.

There is more tea left in my packet of this than I anticipated! This is a nice surprise.
I always am reminded of fresh bread, or rolls, or something else equally carb loaded, fresh out of an oven when I try this.
Mmmmm. Bread tea.

Evol Ving Ness

Your posts make me smile.
Cheery bread tea makes me smile as well.

Does drinking it curb your appetite for bread or does it only make you want bread more?

Rosehips

Well, I always want bread. So this tea is a lovely addition to my carb-hunting life.

Fjellrev

Good answer!

Refreshing and slightly tart, this was a nice way to start my working morning.
Isn’t it Friday yet?

Sil

Is there any satisfaction quite as full as a cup of good tea and some nice biscuits? I doubt that there is. Its such a wholesome, honest sort of pleasure, and if you commit yourself to it in the moment the enjoyment is almost overwhelming.
That was my early afternoon, a cup of this very nice tea, and some hearty rich tea biscits, and I am still feeling a little glow of honest pleasure.

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.
