This was supposed to be an easier day than yesterday, but not so! Its been frantic, running about, trying to align repair men and sleeping companions, coordinating shipments, checking in on the houses of friends who are out of town, and so on.
Argh. Plus an emergency trip to the bus, to drop off by significant other, who did not wake up in time to go there.
And he interrupted this pot of tea! Well, that’s alright. I enjoy this, but its not my very favorite, so I’m ok if it cools a little as I run about like a decapitated chicken.
Whew. And that’s just the morning!

I would write an ode to this squash tea with its gorgeous sugar note and its warm spices, but its too early in the morning to write an ode. You’ll all just have to imagine it.


Argh, why is there “DISC” tacked on to all the Butiki teas? That’s not part of the name of the tea, and I find it irritating. That info can go in the description. One should assume not all teas listed on Steepster are available. (Sorry for ranting on your post.)

Sipdown time!
You ever have one of those days that, for no real reason, you are dreading going into work? That’s my day today. Weee.
Well, I’ll fortify myself with a mint black.
Farewell, Peppermint Bark. I’ve liked you, but not loved you, and its time to move along.

Goodbye, Carol! Until we meet again. I will think fondly of your sweet, candy-bright flavors.

Oh, I’m so glad its a three day weekend. Its gonna be fantastic to not have to go into the office tomorrow morning.
I’m not above drinking a black tea in the evening, especially when it can be a lazy morning the next day.
I love Lupicia, and I love this tea, but its a bit of a mystery why its a Christmas tea. I mean, strawberry? Rose? Wha?
Its still lovely, don’t get me wrong, it just does not seem to be a winter flavor.

When looking at the flavor notes for this tea, I was rather confused. All those notes in one tea?
Turns out, yes, yes there are.
This is a lovely oolong, rich, layered, complex flavors that boil down to simple goodness. I may need some more than the little sample Ost was good enough to send to me. Oh yes, I see some tea shopping in my future. Ooooh yes.
Many, many, many thanks to Ost for letting me try this!


I knew I would not let this one run out, so I wrote the name on the tin in gold ink. That means it is a permanent tea in my collection!


What a fab idea! I should do that as well.

A sipdown! I figured I should have one.
I surprised myself by how much I liked this, but it was very good indeed. I think there will be a time when its welcomed back into my cupboard with open arms, but I’ve got a lot of sipping down to do first.

I’m a good influence on my boyfriend and his roommate. Their cute little tea station has bloomed to amazing levels, and, is full of good teas!
In a hurry today, so grabbed this one, and off I go!

Its my birthday! Today I’m being whisked off to a fancy brunch, and to the opera! I love the opera, so I’m excited.
Time to start the day off right, with this minty, vanilla-y wonderfulness.
Its perhaps silly, at my age, but I’m always excited for my birthday.


Happy birthday! Sounds like you have a fun day planned. Enjoy!!


Happy Birthday! :)

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.
