Oops, what’s this? Two days in one?! AND I’m writing this from my bed?! Well yesterday was an 11 hour work day as I took the wrong bus home, and today is probably another one of those – then I get two days off to relaaaax. So! Here’s day 4 and 5!

On the fourth day of Christmas my Steepsters gave to me… 4 colly birds!

Whee! I opened it up to an explosion of stars! Thank you Boxer Mama, it made me laugh which is an amazing way to start the day :)

I’ve been searching for the perfect Black Currant tea, it being my favourite candy flavour, so I was pretty pumped to give this one a try.

I made a pot with the whole package – it brewed up nice and dark. A hint of astringency with a kick in the face kind of caffeine (I definitely needed it!). Harney and Sons base is so smooth though, such a treat! I haven’t had a lot from them, but what I have had I’ve loved. This is no exception – the black currant flavour was definitely there, but didn’t overshadow the actual TEA. I would happily serve this at a tea party, but even more happily drink it all myself!!! Thanks BoxerMama!

This day will be a little different… as it’s my day! I chose Glitter and Gold from Davids tea, not only for it’s glittery golden aspect – but the flavours just scream Christmas to me! Cinnamon and clove, orange peel, a hint of sweetness and a gorgeous glittering brew. I decorated each package differently, even Michael helped with some!

These are the ones Michael helped with! I love the creepy santa :D

I hope everyone enjoyed their day as much as I enjoyed decorating them. And now.. the tough part – getting out of bed so I can drink some too!
