This week has been wonderful so far . . . I found out on Monday that I have been accepted to nursing school and will start in the fall! I wasn’t expecting to find out for quite a while, so it was a very pleasant surprise! Tomorrow I’m going to dinner with two of my best friends, and Friday my mom and I are having an afternoon tea. And Sunday is Easter, which is one of the best holidays ever in my opinion. :)

I’m starting today off with this Russian Earl Grey from Angelina’s Teas. The dry leaves smell like really tart lemon and orange, and the tea smells the same except it has a hint of sweet orange. The flavor is tart and citrusy, but there’s a mellowness to it. The aftertaste is of really bitter lemon, but adding milk and sweetener helps with this. With milk and sweetener it becomes a cup with more of a black tea flavor with just a little hint of citrusy sweetness. It’s different than a regular Earl Grey because it has more of an authentic, sour lemon flavor and less of the overwhelming bergamot taste. I like this one, it’s nice and soothing. A gentle cup to wake up with.

-Dry blend has large greenish black tea leaves and pieces of lemon grass with large pieces of lemon and orange peel and blue flowers.
-Dry leaves smell like tart lemon and orange. Tea liquor aroma is of tart and sweet citrus fruit.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium golden brown color.
-Mellow and tart citrus flavor and finish. Bitter lemony aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A sweet and mellow lemony cup.

JoonSusanna

Congratulations on nursing school! Are you in a 2 or 4 year program?

Hesper June

Congratulations!

Josie Jade

Thanks everyone! I think this justifies me finally buying a Timolino so I can have hot tea during those long clinical hours. :)

JoonSusanna, it’s a 2 year ADN program. I already have a bachelors degree, so I only have a couple more pre-req classes for the BSN program. I am hoping to do those pre-req classes during the summers so I can go right into the BSN program after I get my RN in 2 years. :)

JoonSusanna

I did the ADN program too, since I have my Bachelor’s in a different field. I definitely liked doing it this way- I’m working now so I can use those hours as my clinical hours when I get into school to do the last few classes. Win win!

I didn’t get into tea until my last semesters in nursing school but I totally wish I had from the beginning! It would have been an awesome stress reliever!

Josie Jade

That sounds like exactly what I’m planning to do, too! The program that I’m doing starts clinicals the very first week of classes, so I’m really excited (and nervous!)

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
