drank Snow Day by DAVIDsTEA

Oh my, I have some awesome coworkers.
Today I ended up hauling home a ton of new teas, all of which are completely new to me! My new boss gave me tea, my co workers at my side job both gave me tea, and my sister has given me tea. So I’m good on teas for quite a while.
What a lovely bunch of people I know. And a lot of it is stuff I would not have picked up by myself, which is exciting. Its neat to try things out of my comfort zone.
I like this, but I don’t quite love it. There is something a little artificial about it. But it’s still fun!

Sigh, my last pot of this. Well, for now, if I’m honest. There is a strong chance that I might grab a bit more of this. Its just lovely on a cool morning.

Hmmm. I thought this smelled positively divine while I was brewing it up, but drinking it fell a little flat.
I may have brewed it too long. I’ll give it another shot, and see!

drank Winter Solstice by Mighty Leaf Tea

There was only one obvious choice for today, and this was it.
I am highly relieved to see that they don’t seem to have tinkered with this too much, as its moved from Peet’s house brand to Mighty Leaf. They had me worried.
It was a long day. I’m glad I had this bit of extra pep!

Winter is coming, so goodbye, fall teas!
I love you, Boston, but we must part for now. Lets meet again, when the air turns crisp once more.

I am getting a little more secure in the new job, but am still not sleeping overly well, due to some stress. Bleh.
So I celebrated my first full week at the new job with this, the same tea I had one day one.
I really like this peppermint black. Its just so happy!

Black tea and peppermint – Sounds wonderful!

I meant to save my last pot of this to compare it to the new tea by the same name, now by Mighty Leaf. But did I do this? No, no I did not. Bleh.
But I really appreciated it this morning, as I raced around getting ready, so that’s all I can say for that.

This is, simply, the most sophisticated mint tea blend I have. If this tea was a person, it would be a really cool architect sort of person, with bold geometric glasses and a taste for spare monochrome. Its just so modern, so elevated. Not at all a sweet or cuddly mint (not that there is anything wrong with a sweeter mint. In fact, I love them dearly). This makes a fascinating blend on a winter’s evening.

drank Paris by Harney & Sons

Monday! First Monday of the new job. Cue the high pitched worrying noises.
It actually went ok, but I’m going to have the creeping feeling that I’m missing something for a while.
This tea is such a solidly good one that I hardly have to pay any attention to it while I bump around in the morning getting ready.
A good day for the first Monday, and a bright spark in a cold morning.

drank Mulled Wine by DAVIDsTEA
1911 tasting notes

Post-yoga tea.
It really does smell and taste mulled, which is very pleasant. However I’ll say it didn’t have the rich mouthfeel that I was looking for.
Still, a pleasant, warm, and slightly spicy cup for the afternoon!

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.
