I am exhausted. Spent a little over 4 hours at mom’s tonight washing walls and going through the crap my sister and her daughter left behind when they moved. Progress is being made. Very good progress. The move has been postponed from Saturday to Sunday because we are expecting snow on Saturday. So, one more day to do some sorting and packing at my apartment. One thing I need to pack is my tea stash. Oy!

When I came home tonight I was dragging, and a migraine had developed on the drive home. I took a shower and put on a clean flannel nightie and I made a cup of this tea. I know its a bagged tea, but it is one of my favorites. The name Sweet &
Spicy is the perfect description of this. If the red hots candy could be liquified, they would taste just like this tea! I know I already have too much tea, but I’m down to only one more bag of this. I will need to pick up another box.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
