Hooray! The time of year has come again, when Peet’s carries Winter Solstice (and Holiday Breakfast Blend) in their stores. While it is by no means a limited edition, it is a special edition, so it will only be sold from now until approximately the end of December. Of the half pound I just bought, we shall see how much is gone by mid-December…

The tins have a new design, this year – more of a white, whimsical theme, vaguely reminiscent of the patterns on their cups: http://d3mrtwiv4dr09z.cloudfront.net/media/catalog/product/cache/2/image/300×400/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/w/t/wts_-_500665_l_1.png
I think I liked the old, metallic blue better. Interestingly enough, one can still purchase teabags of Winter Solstice that have the blue wrapper.

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
