So I have not been logging this as I’ve been drinking it, which means that this was my sipdown cup.
It was…. fine. Uninspired, but fine.
Ah well. I’ll miss Lupicia, but I think this particular blend will slip fully from memory….

New to me tea.
The description is all sorts of things I like- caramel, fruits, whats not to like? Lets see how it brews up.
This is rather reminding me of Neptune, and that means it brews up flatter and a touch more bitter than I expected.
Hmmm. Well, plenty more to try, so I may unlock it yet.

Oh Frabjous day!
The bad work situation is almost 100% resolved, and what we do have done means that probably the tempers at play will go down. And it is now the weekend!
I’m afraid, today, the weather is pouring, a situation I really like, but that I need to get up and go to my side hustle, rather than staying snug and warm in bed, listening to the storm outside.
Ah well. I shall do my work, then come back and sit with tea and books and my knitting and listen to the rain.
I am afraid to say that this is the last cup of this particular pouch of the Jabberwocky. Drat it all! I swear I’m not drinking all this tea? Maybe tea goblins come in and sip it down while I’m not looking?

Less than nice work situation continues, but there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. We are not out of it yet, but there are huge steps towards a resolution. Gosh I hope so.
Normally I love my job. I love coming into the office, I love by boss, I find the company great, all sorts of good things. This week has certainly needed frequent reminders that everything is good, and I am very happy, and this will pass. In a few years I wont remember it at all.
I’m still not quite sure about this breakfast blend. I’m finding it a little bitter, which is never what you want in your first cup of the day. But there is a richness of flavor, after the initial bitter sip, so I am not opposed to playing around with it.
Hmm.

Really liking your workplace and coworkers is a blessing…I’ve been where I am for (longer than some Steepsters have been alive) and I forget that’s the exception, rather than the rule.

It is going to be A Week. There is one of those situations at work that is just going to be ugly until it is done, so everyone around is stressed and unhappy.
Inhale, exhale.
We’re going to get through it, and when we do it will be glorious, and until then I will drink lots of tea and keep breathing.
I cannot understand how people work in more stressful jobs. Mine only occationally has a stressful moment, but when they hit it knocks me for a loop. People with harder jobs must be made of solid iron, rather than the combination of wobbly jello and marshmallow fluff that I am made of.

The amount of stress and sense of urgency present in our daily lives on a regular basis is beyond most of us. Hope this period passes smoothly and easily enough. Be kind to yourself.

It’s at least, productive stress? That is better than other types of stress. :D

A moment of silence for my last sachet of Silent Night. Farewell, beautiful tea. Until we meet again!
Sipdown.

Sipdown!
I’ve had this several times, but it’s not really inspired reviews. I thought it might be like my much loved Tower of London from H&S, but tis but a mere shadow.
Oh well. Worth trying, certainly!

Whoops, I’d forgotten that this tea is temperamental. That you really, really have to watch the steep time or it turns into an angry, bitter cup instead of something sweetly floral.
Whoopsie daisy. Well, maybe I’ve learned my lesson this time?

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.
