drank Jingle Bells by Lupicia

I have cracked open a new tin of this!
Every year I buy a bunch of the Lupicia holiday blends (this, Yume, Carol), which never seem like holiday blends to me. They are all light and fruity, and come in adorable tins. This tin has two fox blacksmiths forging a star. Eeek! Too cute.
But despite the holiday tins I save the teas for the warmer weather, when they feel more correct to me.
This is another grape blend from Lupicia, and one I’ve liked enough to buy a couple of times. The grape is a delicate, green grape flavor, light and almost fizzy. Its very nice on a summer morning.

I fudged the morning pot of this. I’d reached that awkward place where I could have one overleafed pot, or two underleafed ones, and I erred on the side of a sipdown.
This is something I’ve enjoyed. Its not an always in my cupboard staple, but I have really enjoyed having it, and will bring it in again someday.
But its spring like flavors are now a sipdown! Inching closer to my goal!

Whenever I’m in that situation, I always end up taking the overleafing/sipdown route too. It’s just too hard to resist.

drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea

Tea of my afternoon, complete with one very solid almond biscotti.
This is an excellent afternoon blend. A gentle nudge to finish the day out strong.

drank Strawberry by Lupicia

Tea of my morning, which was a lovely cup.
Anyone Eclipse watching today? Where I am is not in the totality, so it will only get a little dark and weird, but I’m still going to step out of the office and take a look (not up, of course. Just at the world).

Welcome to Missouri, where some of the state is in the totality path, much of us are in significant to partial coverage, and nearly everybody has pretty much lost all sense of proportion about the whole thing :)

drank Carol by Lupicia

And another one of my candy sweet Lupicia teas is now done.
I suspect I’ll get some more of it later, and enjoy it next year in the warm weather months, but for now another sipdown to add to the pile!

Tea of my morning and a sipdown.
I am so fond of this candyish black tea blend, and not just because it comes in a tin with waving cats on it.
As always its a bit sad when its sipped down, but I have so many other teas to drink, its all for the best to get it down.
A repeater for sure. I can’t wait for the next decorative tin of this comes out!
Sipdown.

My sipdown this morning has added new vigor to my sipdown efforts. I am once again motivated to get drinking!
I had thought my goal of reaching only 50 teas in the cupboard was perhaps out of range, but things are seeming a bit more do-able now, so I need to keep on leaning in, especially as the autumn collections are starting to make themselves known.
The good thing is that the first one I’ve seen (Davids tea) does not interest me (except for the cute teaware with sheep on it….) but other collections will be coming, and then where will I be, eh? Not yet at my goal and probably chomping at the bit! Well, that will not do. Let us drink tea.
I have a lot of this left, which I am actually not sad about in the slightest. I am really enjoying this Darjeeling, which is mellow and delightful. Just what an afternoon cup should be.

drank Long Tailed Rooster by Lupicia

I had my last little bit of this for my morning cup. Hello Friday, you wonderful creature.
When I first really started drinking teas I was skeptical of grape teas, but it turns out they are fresh and lovely. This was a lovely thing to have in my cupboard for as long as I did, but now it is a sipdown!

Tea of my morning. I have an emotional hangover (not substance induced, I hasten to add), and its going to be a long day. I have brewed up my friend Malachi to ease me through the day.
Its just such a solid, dependable brew. I cannot remember a time when Malachi has let me down.

drank Pride & Peppermint by NovelTeas

Unfortunately my friend, who I seemed to be better yesterday, has had another episode last night, which has left me drawn and upset again.
Reinforcements are coming in, but won’t be here till late Friday and I am just hoping that somehow he will find balance again.
I didn’t know things had gotten this bad.
I had a cup of this last night to try and sooth me. Peppermint seemed good.
Unfortunatly, despite all its beautiful packaging its a disappointing mint tea. Hardly minty at all.
But holding a warm cup in my hand helped a lot.

All you can do is be there, and listen. Having suffered from the same myself, I know that a shoulder to cry on means the world during dark days. I’m so glad he has you as a friend xo

Fjellrev

Oh no, I am so sorry. :(

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.
