I am going crazy on the lattes this afternoon. I think this is my fifth one today but in my defense they are only from samples so they are half the size that I would normally make my lattes. So far I have liked all of them and this one keeps the trend going. It is really good! There’s an extra zing to it that I like and I think it is the blue cornflowers.

Sipdown (152)!

Thanks VariaTEA for the sample.

I didn’t look at the ingredients prior to trying this one so I kind of got to challenge my tasting abilities in that regard. The chocolate in this, for me, was really evident and I thought it presented itself in a smooth, straightforward way that was natural and not too cloying. I got creamy, custardy components as well which led me to believe that either this was milk chocolate or it incorporated vanilla, if not both. I think, maybe, the former is the case? The description of this one doesn’t do much in the way of elaboration.

Once I did look up the ingredients I was very surprised to see that I missed a key one: pineapple. Pineapple is one of my personal favourite flavors so the fact it completely passed by me was disappointing. I’m not sure whether to chock that up to a weak flavour in the blend or bad observational skills. But even if I had noticed it I have to say I’m not totally sure what place it would have had alongside the chocolate. I mean, far be it from me to say that pineapple isn’t part of the recipe for happiness ’cause man do I love me some pineapple. But pineapple and chocolate? It seems like a weird mash up.

Overall – just going by my blind impression I thought this was about average. Drinkable, but not exceptional or restock worthy. Knowing the ingredients? I’m more critical because I don’t think the flavour was properly balanced or clear. So I think overall this is maybe just a little less than acceptable/average?

Sipdown (135)

I have an interview tomorrow so the last 2 days I have been shopping for interview clothing/shoes. Unfortunately, it has not been going well. Apparently if you are plus size, it is impossible to get plain black dress pants or a professional looking dress. Seriously, it was impossible. Plus, the saleswomen I encountered were rude so that did not help the situation. Then today, I went in search of a sensible work shoe and apparently those don’t come in size 10. Yeah, it was not a fun experience but in the end I found enough to scrape together a decent ensemble. Hopefully the interview goes better.

With that said, when I came home, this tea seemed necessary. I iced the blend and as I sipped on it, I did get a nice caramel chocolate flavor. Alas, the rooibos base was just as present as the flavors. It was a battle in my cup and no one was winning. Also, the picture for this tea shows chocolate and blueberries while the description says chocolate and pineapple. Not getting any of those fruity flavors.

Sil

that sucks. Sorry you had a hard time with shopping.

Super Starling!

Those professional black pants are a nightmare. They cannot handle my glorious pear shape. I’m a skirts girl through-and-through when it comes to grown-up workwear.

I ended up with a skirt ultimately but even that was difficult to find

I am super picky about pants. I can usually find some I like, but it always takes forever.
