drank Morning Sunshine by Tea Cozy
2380 tasting notes

This tea got the honor of becoming a new work tea today. Its not exactly one of my least drunk blends, but I wanted a break for more traditional breakfast blends, and this has not been getting tons of love at home, so I thought it best to use it productively.
I’ve found it bitter in the past, but somehow it was not today! What! A change of scene, (or perhaps my current state of exsaustion resulted in a lighter steep? Who knows. I just hope it bodes well for the future of this blend!

Arrgh, a large fireworks-heavy festival on a weeknight? Means not a lot of good quality sleep for me. Booo.
So I was happy to have anything at all in my mug this morning, and this was that brew.
I don’t love this brew. I’ve not yet been able to take out an edge of bittnerness to it, but its not bad.
Still, I’d take anything to help me wake up this morning.

drank Irish Breakfast by Tea Cozy
2380 tasting notes

I’ve been drinking this more than I’ve been logging it, as its my work morning tea, and there isn’t that much to say about it.
I’m not wild about this blend. I’ve certainly had better breakfast blends. This one was too heavy for me to find truly appealing.
But I am logging it today to say that it is a Sipdown! Whooo! Another one bites the dust in the Sipdown Summer Extravaganza!
Good progress to my goals! Now I’ll have to pick a new blend to bring to work!

Well done! Thank heavens for work teas. Otherwise, we’d likely be staring at them in the cupboard forever.

drank Yume by Lupicia

Its Monday! Its a Monday on a weird week, with tomorrow being off (I’m in the States, so tomorrow is a holiday), but then back in after that.
I wanted something uncomplicated today, something that I know what the outcome of brewing it was, so I grabbed this.
It was light, springy, and just generally nice today.
Ahh. Tea.

Evol Ving Ness

Really, why don’t they just give you today off too?

Rosehips

Ha, I wish I knew.

Evol Ving Ness

I think the 4th should be from like Thursday through to Tuesday. I bet if there were some sort of sport hoopla around this time, it would be. More advertising to do, more nachos to make, and more wings to eat. And bbq. :)

Evol Ving Ness

Though bbq may interfere with the games.

drank Darjeeling by Ahmad Tea
2380 tasting notes

This is the latest tea to win the lottery and be plucked out of obscurity in my home cupboard and live a more scrutinized life on my desk at work.
There are several reasons for this one winning this prime spot- I am fond of Darjeeling, I have hardly drunk this at all in the time I have owned it (which is a time that I cannot put an exact number to), and I have a lot of it. The tins are huge, and intimidate me for my normal life. How is one woman supposed to drink all of that, when there are also many other teas on the kitchen counter that require attention.
So, a perfect candidate for work, where it is a member of a more select group, and can get the individual attention it needs to sip it down.
Its gonna be a while.
This is a nice Darjeeling. Its a sort of basic, but I think that could be a strength and not a weekness. It seems like there would be hardly an afternoon where it would not suit.
So, one cup of who knows how many left to drink!

Plucked from obscurity in my home cupboard to live a more scrutinized life on my desk at work—-this made me smile.

drank Irish Breakfast by Tea Cozy
2380 tasting notes

I’ve been drinking this while I’m at work, but I’ve not been moved to log my cups of it.
This is a very strong breakfast blend, dark, slightly woody, and with a bitter edge to it. Its not really wowing me, like some breakfast blends have in the past. But! Its doing its job as a work tea well, and we’re nearly through it. Just a cup of two left, and then we have sipdown success in the great summer sipdown project.
But not yet!
I will say this. Its very, very good on days when you are very sleepy. This tea demands to wake you up!

drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons
2380 tasting notes

I am exsausted today. My directing project keeps me from home till late, but I still have to get up early in the mornings for my day job. And today I am feeling the week so fars lost sleep.
Nothing dainty, but nothing harsh. That’s what I needed, and I reached for the best tea to guide me through these sorts of mornings- the Queen herself.
Is there such a thing as a cult tea blend? If so, I feel the Queen is it. Her following is devoted and true, and I don’t think I can pretend that I am not a member of that illustrious group.
She certainly helped me be ready for the day!

Vanilla Comoro may be another Harney cult favorite (decaf)…one of mine, for sure.

Rosehips

Oooh! Yes! I love Vanilla Comoro. I think you are right, certainly a cult classic.

cuddlesmom

I tried QC recently and I have agree, it is a wonderful blend!

ashmanra

Long live the Queen!

drank Lady Grey by Lovejoy's Tea Room
2380 tasting notes

This tea has been very pleasant to have in my work cupboard. It has been a sunny cuppa on the days when I could use some cheer.
Its one I would not mind picking up someday in the future, but there is no urgency for it.
Sipdown!

drank Long Tailed Rooster by Lupicia
2380 tasting notes

I woke from a very strange dream to the desire for something light, juicy and refreshing.
Lupicia makes really good fruity blacks, I find. This was juicy and pleasant today, especially as I gave it a slightly lighter steep than my usual, which eliminated the hint of bitterness that can come when this is left too long brewing.
Ahhh. Wednesday. Half way through!

I’ve had two cups of this today, which hit the spot.
Tea can help one get through a very long day!

Bio

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.
