It’s starting to get hot in my part of the world. Like, 90 degrees hot. Ugh. Despite the fact that I grew up in this hot climate, I’ve never really liked the heat, preferring weather where I can cozy up with a cup of tea.
Oh well.
I picked this up because lemon and elderflower sounded delightful, refreshing, nice! In reality I’m finding my cup a little bit sour. Maybe I need to adjust the steep time?

Same. We have been doing gong fu outside. Yesterday we killed several mosquitoes and we have already had temps in the high 80’s. I grew up here, but I wish I could be elsewhere in sticky summer.

It’s been a while since I posted a review here, though it’s only been a moment since my last sip of tea.
Weird times, eh? I can’t believe how quickly the world has turned on it’s head, and I’m still reeling.
Its the little things that are keeping me grounded. They usually do, but it’s especially strong these days. The soft sound of a page turning, the colors of a ball of yarn, the sent wafting up from my cup of tea.
I’ve been leaning heavily on favorite blends, and this is at the forefront of that movement. A classic which I am always in the mood for, and always lifts my spirits.

Hello there, and thanks for the well-written “little things” that made me smile. Yesterday it was the scent of sheets dried outside on the clothesline; this morning it was turning the pages of the hymnbook my sister gave me years ago and remembering the old tunes.

Nice to have a tea that you know you can count on to keep you centered. Stay well, Rosehips.

Happy Valentines day!
My goodness, we’re halfway through February already? Where is the time going? Ack!
It’s time to unearth an old favorite. I think I’m always going to like this one, it tastes light and fruity and lovely, and some days thats just all that I need!

Oops. Funny how everybody’s seasonal outlook differs…I’m in “spring can’t get here soon enough” mode! I have one sachet of Paris tucked away; I guess I was holding off for a special occasion. February 14 counts, I’m sure!

I’ve been sipping on this pretty consistantly for the last few mornings, but have not yet had the time to log this tea. Whoops!
Its nice. A solid blend, with a touch of vanilla to smooth it out. I like it. I don’t know that it’s a repeater, but I do like it. It won’t be a problem sipping it down.

For my last breakfast cup of 2019 is this blend. Its just a nice, relaxing one, earthy and a bit sweet, and lovely on a cold morning.
I cannot believe the year is gone. What happened?

Ahhh, I hadn’t thought of it like that! Kind of bittersweet, isn’t it?

The longer you’ve been climbing, the faster the boulder rolls downhill!

This is my advent for the day!
I like cinnamon a lot. It’s one of my favorite flavors, but this was almost too strong. Very, very cinnamon-y.

And this is a sipdown!
Impression? It’s chai! jazz hands
Perhaps a more sophisticated chai taster than myself could figure out the subtleties and nuance of this tea, but for me, I found it warming and solid, and it never went cold in my cup.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
