Hello Steepster. It’s been a while, huh?
So I recently got an email from DavidsTea saying, “Hey, we miss you! Here’s $10 off a $60 purchase.” And I was like, “Okay, I’m convinced.”
See, the reason I was gone so long was because I felt like my tea acquisition needed to stop, at least for a little while. Good tea is not cheap, and I had so much tea. And it’s only me drinking it, really, so it takes a while to get through everything. I still haven’t managed to drink away my stash, but I’m the sort of person that craves new experiences. My drinking had slowed down because I was bored by having the same teas available all the time. I know, so fickle. I also can’t handle more than 2 cups of caffeinated teas a day. That makes it harder to drink away all the delicious oolongs and greens I’ve accumulated.
So when I got that email, I was sort of jostled out of my bored tea rut. David was telling me, “hey, you haven’t bought anything in a while. Why not? Here’s a coupon!”
So here I am with a lot of new tea. I am so excited. I got a lot of non-caffeinated stuff. Some were old favorites, but this one was new. I actually brewed my own ginger beer once. It’s not bad, but I’m not a fan of fizzy drinks. This tea however! It captures all the best of a ginger beer. I bet it would be delicious iced, but it’s also delightful hot. The light ginger warmth soothes my sore throat and the fruit bits add sweetness. It actually tastes like it’s bubbly without feeling bubbly. Nice. I like it more than I expected to. Too bad it’s a fruit tea. Those often go so quickly as it takes a lot to brew a good cup.
Ah well, I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.
