Trying this one again!
All this week, I’ve slept so poorly. I’ve been struggling to fall asleep at night. My sweet husband is away and I miss him… Only two more sleeps to go though!
But this morning… haha this morning was interesting. I ended up over sleeping! I woke up at 4:50 a.m., with a headache that was just a pounding. I think I was dehydrated and over tired,… So, I got up and had a glass of water and went back to bed were I was finally able to sleep! The dreaded alarm went off… and off… and off… Mothing could get me out of bed. When I finally did… I realized I was probably going to be late for work!
So I made this one quickly as I was getting ready to head out the door. Yaay for tea timers and kettles that auto shut off!

Anyway, I made this one with my new DavidsTea measuring spoon, which is going to take a bit to get use to its size, and let it steep as I brushed my teeth.

I added milk and sugar to it, and it tastes awesome. I love the smoother than silk reference in the info. It’s so fitting. This tea does have some kick to it, but it’s not overwhelming. And it does have some very nice smooth flavours coming out in the chocolate and coconut and vanilla. I wish this one didn’t brew up so murky in my steeper, but really, that’s not a big deal.

This one would make a good latte! I may try that one next!

I’m a 30-something-year-old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer.
I’m the proud mommy of two sweet little boys! One born Feb. 3/15. He showed up 4.5 weeks early, but thankfully after a week in the hospital he’s great now. :)
The second one came just Monday evening at only 2 weeks early so he’s healthy and perfect!
Life just got so much more busy and crazy but I’m so excited.
I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream), and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

I would have to say my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal, white and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

Green teas, pu’erh, and matcha are starting to grow on me but I’m very picky about them still. I am finding I like pu’erh tea cakes much better than loose. And with matcha I much prefer flavoured ones over straight.

I still don’t really care for mate teas but there a couple that are the exception to that.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
