I don’t know how much I’m going to be posting lately. Over the weekend my boyfriend and I broke up. We’d been together for six years.
Its a no-fault break-up. We still love each other, we still love being with one another. But our lives do not seem to be going in the same direction, and we needed to go apart and think about the future.
It doesn’t feel real. I feel blank, and am having trouble eating.
I’m working on being super nice to myself. Thats where some of this tea comes in.
Nothing too bold or daring right now. I’m just going to have nice teas for a while.
I hope you don’t mind if I’m not writing too much right now. But I will be reading. This is such a nice place to be.

Really sorry to hear that Rosehips. Just remember we’re all here, for whatever you need.

gmathis

Change is hard. Praying for you today.

tea-sipper

I’m sorry!

Evol Ving Ness

These things are terribly hard. Big hugs to you, Rosehips. I hope the transition is kind to you. You will come through this. Remember that.

CelticBrew

Sorry to hear that. Being super nice to yourself is the best thing you can do! Cozy and comforting teas, relaxing baths and nice home-spa products helped a lot with mine.

Maddy Barone

Oh, no. I’m so sorry.

Fjellrev

Oh Rosehips, I Am so sorry to hear that. :(

Hugs to you! You know if you need someone to talk to, there are lots of kind hearts here. Sometimes amazing things come out of a hard place and we look back and see that one required the other. Thinking of you this evening.

Is there coconut in this? I seem to be experiencing coconut….. hmm. Could be my imagination, but I’m tasting a new flavor today….

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, I don’t recall coconut in this one. But I could be wrong. It’s been a while.

I may have finished this yesterday. I mean, maybe. No promises. I somehow thought I had a second pouch of this somewhere….. maybe?
So I’m gonna leave it in the cupboard for now, but I’ve got to reorganize the tea stash!

drank Candy Cane Crush by DAVIDsTEA

A pouch of this accompanied me to work today, where I am nominating it to be the next work tea.
It was really, really mild today, and, curiously, pink! I would not have guessed there was a black tea base in this, if I was blindfolded and given this.
In that case it will be a great work tea, though I do hope I can get my proportions right and release the peppermint goodness that I hope lurks within.

Polished this off at work today, and it didn’t make an impression.
I’m glad this one is out of the cupboard! Sipdown.

A moment of “ugh” this morning, when I had finished measuring out my leaf, and then knocked my tin off the table, spilling leaf all over the kitchen floor. Ugh.
I managed to get the tin with a serving or two left in it, but the stuff that hit the floor, well, no. No way I am drinkng floor tea. And at least I’d measured out my breakfast cup.
I like this, but I don’t love this, and I’m not even sure that I like it well enough to bring it back in the end.
But still, I didn’t want to spill it.

Maddy Barone

oh, man, how frustrating!

Indigobloom

I won’t cry over spilled milk. But maybe spilled tea? maybe! blech.

This is the latest blend I’ve brought to work, and I’ve been brewing up large mugs of the stuff, as I shuffle paperwork.
I think that this is too old. The flavors have faded to nearly nothing, so its a vaguely minty cup of hot water. Not an unpleasant vaguely minty cup of hot water, but still. Not quite tea.
Oh well, it will be finished soon!
I’m gonna leave my rating alone, though. Its not the tea’s fault that I let it get too old.

drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
2068 tasting notes

You know those mornings, where you are laying in bed, and its the most comfortable place in the world? Yeah, that was me today. It was so warm, so soft, so unbelievably snug, that it was physically painful to get out of it when my alarm ruined the dark and quiet.
But there is always tea! Tea! How I love tea in the mornings. Its a wonderful motivator.
So, today, with enough time to make a pot, I’ve settled on this. If anything could comfort me out of bed, this is it.

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.
