    Busy afternoons working. Would still be working if I didn't have to make dinner. Today's Apple Cider #tea was perfect drinking while working. No caffeine, but total easy drinking. I didn't realize I had nearly finished it! #24daysoftea #davidstea #herbalinfusion

    On the first week of December, we always get a tree! So I made sure my mani matched! #jamberry #lightitupjn #wintergreenjn This is the second iteration of this mani. The first one had a solid sparkly wrap too. But this is much better.

    Day 5 is coffee cake. I tried to savour this one in to really figure out what it tastes like. When you take the actual cake out of the equation, it is hard to pin down the coffee cake taste. But if you think long and hard about it you realize that this tea pretty much nails it. Not exceptional. Not bad though either. #24daysoftea #adventcalendar #tea #davidstea

    @lauralorourke I just found there were too many plain, boring, bitter teas last year and not enough flavourful ones!

    @sinsofknowing Shoot! If it makes you feel any better there are definitely repeats from last year in the calendar. So. Maybe this one would have been disappointing for you too.

    @lauralorourke I was so disappointed with last year's calendar that I didn't buy it this year and so far it looks friggen amazing! Sad! We couldn't get the Lindt ones anywhere either by the time we remembered to look.

    TBH, it looks like fun to play with. Numbered blocks and little cans!

    @lauralorourke I definitely would have thrown a blanket over it and called a friend. 😂 haha

    Oh no!!! Get Cameron to put it back together so you don't have to read them. I would call someone over who didn't care so much! I do not peek. 🙈

    I can't see straight. And this is before I've even had a drink from this. I'm working on three hours of sleep from last night. I could have gone to bed already but I really just wanted to enjoy some time of quiet and relaxation. It was supposed to be tea but I wanted this instead. And I'm loving just sitting here, in front of our tree, with a fire on and my cozy socks.

    This makes me happy. I honestly had no idea when we would have a chance to get one this year. But our evening cleared up so we got a tree!! Now... we won't have a chance to decorate it until Wednesday at the earliest.
    Also, note to anyone who has been to my house in the last few months: my desk? Totally gone. Totally clean. Take that!

    At least we're getting Genmaicha out of our system early. I like green tea. I do not like this green tea. If I want to smell burnt rice, I'll just microwave a bean bag to enjoy on my back. Oh well. I'll give it another try just for the full experience. I probably won't drink much though. #24daysoftea #davidstea #tea #greentea

    It was my first time trying it and I have to agree - not so great. I drank it out of a sense of obligation 😉 (And just BTW, happened to see your Dad in SJ today. Made me think of you!)

    @jackelyndempster yup! I drank most of it. It is actually better cold I think. :) then you don't have the smell. :)

    Burnt popcorn smell. If you can get past the smell the taste isn't awful. Haha. But it can smell up a room! Definitely not my favourite!

    My thoughts exactly! Drinking mine now.
