This was my cold brew this week. It’s been really hot and muggy this week so a good cold tea was refreshing.

I haven’t been posting much the past few months. My mom had a severe stroke early in May. She held on for almost two weeks before passing away. Her funeral was a week later. I did okay with the grief for about a month, but for some reason the last two weeks have been really hard for me. I guess it takes a while for some people.

I have enough of this tea to make another 2 quarts iced. But I think I’ll go find something else to brew. Maybe that watermelon mint from Republic of Tea. It sounds refreshing.

Maddy, so sorry to hear about your mom! Thanks for letting us know. Grief hits everybody differently, and often at the most unexpected times. Please know I’ll be praying for you as you are missing her.

I am sorry for your loss, Maddy. Grief is a strange thing. My father died in 1988 and it was sometime in the 1990’s that I went through a terrible spell of missing him so much I felt I could hardly stand it. We had just moved into our own home and I thought of all the things we would have done together. It was much worse than right after he died. It will get easier. Look for the ball in the box video about grief if you haven’t seen it. It holds pretty true. Prayers for you.

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.
