drank Earl of Time by A Quarter to Tea

I felt like Earl Grey today, and this seemed light a bright and cheerful cup.
I got more bergamot than currant than I have in the past, and the whole thing was not as aggressively citrus-y as I recall.
Not a bad thing, just not exactly what I was expecting this morning.

drank French Vanilla by Tea Cozy

Of course, now that I’m ready to be thoroughly cozy as the rain falls down around me, the weather has decided to stop.
Well, that’s just how this week is going, I suppose!
Still, this was pleasant to drink as a lunchtime brew, even if the sun has decded to make an appearance.

drank Earl Grey Lavender by Tea Cozy

I find I like lavender most when its cold, and specifically when its raining. So bingo, hey presto, a perfect cup for today.
Today it was more lavender than earl grey, but as that’s what I was in the mood for I’m not going to fuss.

Went to bed to the sound of rain, and woke up to the sound of rain. Ahh, that’s how I like it.
I am sort of a thematic person. I like matching flavors, clothing, smells, and the other details of my life to a theme, even if that theme might not make any sense to anyone else. So I was pleased with the idea of a storm tea for a stormy morning.
This is a very pleasant blend, light and refreshing. That’s not exactly the flavor profile I would have given to a tea called Winter Storm, but hey. It was good, it cheered my morning, why am I really going to complain about it?

You’re not the only one. Along with swapping out winter clothing for spring, I also stored my fall/winter DVDs and brought out the spring movies. One must watch Walt Disney’s Robin Hood and Mulan in March and April :)

I too share a love of themes and pairing

It was raining properly this morning. Dark, stormy, wet, the whole nine yards. Why can’t that ever happen on a morning when I don’t have to wake up and can spend the day lounging and drinking tea in a decadent fashion? No, its only happens on work days, when I need to get up, get dressed, and go into the office.
Bleh.
But no reason not to have a truly lovely cup of smokey tea in the business of the morning.
Blackbear is just such a perfect tea for a rainy morning. I can’t even tell you how much pleasure it can give.

A whole day when it is raining properly to drink tea and putter and contemplate the world is divine.

drank Bonfire Toffee by Bluebird Tea Co.

Backlogged from yesterday.
I should love this. The flavors are exactly my sort of thing, and this should be a creation that brings me to rapture.
It does not, alas. I find it artificial tasting, and too watery to be really enjoyable.
Ah well.

For once a full and decent night of sleep! Yay!
So I felt adventurous in my morning cup of tea, and decided to break this one out, which was a gift.
I love fruity black blends, so I was hopeful for this one. But my first cup is not overwhelming me with goodness.
I mean, its fine. Its perfectly fine, but its not overly blueberry-y. I was hoping for a stronger fruit flavor.

Oh, how I long for a full and decent night’s sleep! My neighbour’s infant has been waking me up for months.

drank Lapsang Chai by Bluebird Tea Co.
2380 tasting notes

I got in late last night (attending a friends wedding), and then, this morning, I woke up much too early and could not get back to sleep.
Today is supposed to be a light day- I have to go grocery shopping and to the gym, but then I can relax at home. I intend to do just that.
But to propel me forward on this morning I wanted something strong.
Whoo, this is strong. I’m not convinced that lapsang and chai go together perfectly, but I don’t dislike it, and I’m grateful for the punch today.

drank Capri by Harney & Sons

Ugh, not enough sleep. What is it with this week and being insufficiently rested?
I’m in one of my moods where I want the same tea over and over, so this was on the menu today. Its helping, so far!
Though now I think of it I should have had the Irish breakfast blend I own, in my nod to St. Patricks day….
Well, too late now!

In attempt to curtail the tiny headache I still have, I figured I’d have some more caffeine. That helps, sometimes. Sometimes, of course, it makes it much worse, but this doesn’t feel like that sort of headache.
Alas, its not decreased the headache (time to turn to a headache pill), but it was pleasant enough to drink, and really, what more can I ask of tea?

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.
