Teacup: Amareto Cereza Review

Here’s the scoop

Amareto Cereza “Cherry Amaretto” by Teacup was introduced to me by my friend, Cristina. Who is also a lover of all things tea and coffee. SIDE-NOTE: I think because of her I am getting more into the coffee scene, but before you start jumping for joy I am SLOWLY jumping onto the coffee train.

I have no wish to abandon my tea addiction anytime soon!

Up for the Challenge

Hey beautiful people! Since I have a bit of free time and honestly because I kind of miss writing, I have decided to purpose a small challenge for myself that will be to write something every day no matter if it is something short, but to physically (or electronically) write. *SIDENOTE: Isn’t it such a beautiful craft when someone can write and actually express their feelings and sentiments through words? At least, in my opinion, it is; if someone knows how to write they can properly illustrate their personal ideas and emotions and share an experience with others.

365 days of Sincerely Doris

One Year in the Making

Exactly one year ago I was looking for new personal endeavors and debating with my Zambian bestfriend on whether I should take the leap and create a blog. *SIDENOTE: I feel everyone in the world deserve such a loving and nurturing friend like my Siobhain. She’s really a behind the scenes MVP on encouraging my passion to start a blog. Thus, I am thrilled to be celebrating my 1st-year blogiversary on our soon to come Croatia girls trip cruise.

Tea Shop: Wild Peach Review

Here’s the scoop

While returning back to Pamplona, to celebrate the last days of San Fermines (the Running of the Bulls). If you are new to the running of the bulls check out my post on it HERE. I noticed that I was super dehydrated from all the heat, sun and who am I kidding drinking. I didn’t want to make a hot tea obviously but I didn’t want the character taste of a tea so I opted for a new herbal tea to “quench” my thirst.

Why Wild Peach? 

I heard about this blend from a friend at work, and I had purchased it a few month ago but never got around to actually making it. Plus, I took advantage of the fact that somehow the packed found its way into my luggage and “badda boom, badda bing” here we are.

The Argument

Today, I was determined to fight this rain storm with all of my might. While waiting outside, chic plastic umbrella in hand I knew that today I would not get wet. I even dared to wear my cream off the shoulder dress from Zara and my Oxford’s Brogues because let’s be serious it hardly rains in Madrid.

Normally I never have to venture out into the real world during working hours, unless it’s to have a coffee and toast, to stretch my legs out a bit or just to clear my mind. Thus the reason for my bold outfit of choice. Additionally here in Madrid, we are overcoming our second heat wave so I had to take advantage of this slightly cooler weather. But today was different. Today, I had to visit the US Embassy, deliver documents and pick up certificates from multiple departments. I managed to arrive to work without one raindrop to greet me in the morning. To day was destined to be a good day!

Tea Shop: Asian Wellness Review

Good Morning everyone and Happy Sipping!

Here’s the scoop

Today I am so excited to bring you a new tea post, yesterday while shopping with friends I had to make my routine stop in the Tea Shop to see what new stock they had floating about and boy was I excited to try out some new teas.

Why Asian Wellness? 

I am cleaning out my tea cabinet in search for new fresh tasting teas, since this winter has been all about heavy, bold teas and rooibos with tons of spices. Now I am ready to kick those to the side (until the colder months pop back in) and explore new tea options that satisfy my taste for new crisp and fun teas.
