Smells and tastes like some autumn-themed Yankee Candle in the best of ways. Really. I’m getting a major hit of chamomile in the form of apple, not in the pollen-sweet way and certainly not dusty. Mildly sweet, plenty of cardamom, which in the case of cardamom means there is probably only a sprinkling. Then I notice the warm spiciness and slight drying of woody cinnamon and ginger. The appley taste brightens up in the back of the mouth becoming tart, where it morphs into what I’m guessing is the pumpkin spice flavoring? Some grounding sweet cocoa taste lingers in the aftertaste. Then a bit later comes the returning sweetness of a lightly bitey honeybush in the throat. And lastly, the marshmallow root gives a touch of body. This is blended very well. Smooth flavors! And it can’t be oversteeped! What more could you ask for before bedding down?

The normal low 80s of this week will give way on Sunday to 5 or 6 days of 90s and 100s. At least it will still be in the 50s at night, so this herbal tea will remain in rotation.

Book pairing: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis

Oh, Narnia! Lots of good memories reading those aloud with my son. The final chapter of “The Last Battle” is just the best ever!

I remember reading these aloud to my kids. I have never heard of them until I had kids! As I sobbed through the death of Aslan, my then six year old son patted my shoulder telling it was going to be okay!

I bought this tea for myself, as well! I enjoyed it, and can’t wait for cool temps to return so I enjoy it in my rocker at night!

Children’s fantasy comforts more than tea when I’m exhausted.

Have you ever tried the Redwall series by Brian Jacques? I love to recommend those to my advanced-reader fifth and sixth graders. Swashbuckling mice, hedgehogs, and nefarious badgers and weasels. Written intelligently!

Redwall is great! (I have not read all of them, have enjoyed those I have read).

I feel like one of you has dropped Redwall before. I will keep it in mind, thanks :)

Somehow I missed Madeline L’Engle when I was a kid, but a dear friend and mentor recommended all her stuff—-both her children’s fiction and adult everything. On my wish list.

Mastress Alita

I know I read L’Engle when I was a kid. My favorite book of all-time is a children’s book, and I re-read it typically once a year — I have three copies on my shelf (and a digital version of the graphic novel edition!) It’s “The Giver” by Lois Lowry. Quick read and I feel like I get something new from it each time. Or at least always get overwhelmed with a deep feeling of appreciation for all the things in life we take for granted every time I read it.

At last we have another truly cool evening with low humidity! After broiling through days with a heat index of 104F as recently as a week ago, we are going to dip into the 50’s tonight! I have been waiting for this all day.

As soon as we dipped below 65F, I suggested to my husband a bit of rocking chair time on the back porch with a cuppa.

I made this latte style, heating the milk first and continuing to heat it for about one minute with the leaves added, then off the heat and steeping for another three to four minutes. I usually sweeten my lattes and I did add sugar to this one.

I get a lot of chamomile in the aroma but mostly taste the spice – pumpkin spice and cardamom. Oh, I love cardamom in blends like this!

Drinking it, I noticed a tingling warm sensation in my mouth from the ginger. I can imagine how delightful that will be when the temperatures are truly cold!

I am so glad this has honeybush as the base instead of the ubiquitous red rooibos which is not a favorite of mine. I greatly prefer honeybush or green rooibos in its place. This carries the spices so much better and lets them shine more, in my opinion.

It passed the husband test and was deemed as a worthy bedtime treat. And now the warm milk and chamomile combo have made me sleepy, so off to bed!

We had a 52 degree wake-up here this morning.

Ah yes! I know I will complaining about the cold soon, and already I wish the days were not growing so short, but I am happy the worst of the heat and humidity is gone!

Martin Bednář

Finally some bearable temperatures!
