Sipping On: Espresso Martini
Watching: Elementary (CBS Show)
It feels like ages since I’ve done a Time to Steep…let’s be honest, it has been ages. Who am I trying to fool?!? But I must say, I have been waiting to do this specific review since December. Why the wait? Well…
Time for part 2 of my tea adventure! Originally, I thought I could combine all of this into one post…but no. It would have been way too much (and quite honestly Tea 101 is probably already too long). Find part 1 here.
Sipping on: DAVIDsTEA Vanilla Matcha while transitioning over to Tension Tamer
Watching: Sleeping Beauty (“I know what you’ll do, you love me at once. They way you did once upon a dream.”)
It’s about time to do my Celestial adoration post! Companies that I admire and that I have had positive interactions with, deserve some attention. Celestial is hands down one of those companies for me. I can honestly say there is nothing better then when you tag a company in something, and they read/interact back with you. Celestial is one of those companies! They have retweeted some of my posts, enjoyed some of my pictures, and I have even recently won a contest through them!
I decided to start doing a Sip/Tea of the Month and share which tea I have been enjoying the most. Let me say that December is not an easy month to start with – there are so many seasonal teas in the competition!
After thinking about ALL the cups I have drank in the past month (and trust me this is an extremely large number), it finally occurred to me which tea shines in the spotlight! Drumroll please……. DAVIDsTEA Mint Matcha!
Yes. Parsley is in the background, not mint. But hey, at least it’s green!
Steep Theme: TJ Maxx – Holiday Time Tea Selection
Listening to: Acoustic Christmas (Spotify Playlist)
Sipping on: Bigelow Peppermint
Something I love/hate about the holidays: the enormous selection of items that appear EVERYWHERE, especially at TJ Maxx (and company). I call it a love/hate because as much as I love that there is more selection, I hate that it’s not there the rest of the year. There is nothing worse than the plague that hits at the end of winter period, right before the stock switches over to spring…just dreadful.
There is nothing like your first…..first DAVIDsTEA post that is!
To say that I love DAVIDsTEA is an understatements. It’s a brand I tell everyone to try, and I don’t usually go a day without drinking at least one cup. I must admit, my secret dream is to own everyone single tea, proudly display them in my future home, and then causally offer up my selection when guests come over. It will truly be a fantastic day. Okay, just needed to get that off my chest so you have a better idea of what my obsession level is. Anyway…DAVIDsTEA 100% deserves to have some love shinned on them, but I want to save my praises and admiration for another post. Why might you ask am I doing that for? Well, honestly…this is going to be quite the long post all on its own! Any more words would probably be unbearable to read, as I am already well beyond what a sane person would write.
The reason for the long post: MY HOLIDAY/WINTER TEA REVIEW!
Tis’ the Season – Celestial Seasonal Favorites (or Holiday Teas)
It’s always joyous trying seasonal products. Sure they might not always taste great or be what you expected, but the excitement of just trying is worth while! I think everyone can agree that there are no better seasonal flavors than Holiday/Winter ones. Today, I wanted to review Celestial Seasonal Favorites to kick off this holiday season!
Steep Theme: Warm & Cozy
Sipping on: DAVIDsTEA Hot Chocolate w/ agave & Trader Joe’s Eggnog
Listening to: Only You by Kylie Minogue with James Corden (Original by Yazoo)
Sugar, spice and all things nice….perfect theme for the day! As we begin to embrace these colder months (well at least for some of us), there is nothing quite like snuggling up with a warm drink. Especially if that drink is the embodiment of the holiday spirit! Currently, I have 4 box teas in my possession that fit this description AND that I have been enjoying.
