I stopped by David's Tea to pick up some of my favourite Christmas teas. I'll go in again next month and stock up in huge amounts so they last me a good chunk of next year.

They are both seasonal teas, so once they sell out of the year's stock, they're gone - unless they come back again next year. All the seasonal teas end up in that section as they run out. I bet they'll be back!

But I did notice that they're discontinuing my favourite, which is Fantasy Island - I need to stock up!

My mom is obsessed with cinnamon rooibos chai now (also my favourite caffeine-free tea). I intentionally oversteep that one and it's so delicious. She can't believe there's no added sugar.

The fall collection is here! My beloved Pumpkin Chai is back. I rationed it all year and just ran out a few weeks ago.

I saw the tweet from Davids about that today, then noticed I still have some from last year! I must have gotten tired of it last year.

It was early November in 2013, but I feel like it was before Halloween last year?

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.

November 1st is right.

I knew where I was when I got mine (in Ontario on course for work) and I thought that I left at the end of October but I remember now that I had to stay until the first week of November
