Ahh, it feels good to be back on Steepster after a little break. The last part of the semester was absolutely crazy. I am so ready for summer break – bring on the sun!

This tea smells like rich chocolate and mint, very nice. The tea liquor has a black tea and chocolate aroma with just a hint of mintiness. The flavor is of silky and smooth chocolate with a refreshing minty finish and aftertaste. The flavor reminds me of a peppermint patty, like liquid candy. I added a little milk and sweetener and this became the perfect cup for this somewhat chilly spring day.

We are fostering four kittens for the local Humane Society and they are in the bathroom right off of the kitchen. They are in one of their playful moods and romping all over. If you didn’t know there were kittens in there you’d wonder what was going on, considering all of the noise they are making. I am in love with every single one of them, especially the little runt who has a few health issues, but is doing much better. :)

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with small chocolate chips and small pieces of peppermint leaves.
-Dry leaves smell like rich chocolate and fresh peppermint. Tea liquor aroma is of black tea and chocolate with a hint of mint.
-Tea liquor is a clear medium golden brown color.
-Silky strong chocolate flavor with a refreshing soft minty finish and aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. Silky smooth chocolate and mint flavor. Reminiscent of a peppermint patty.

Kittehs! My hubby is making googoo eyes at me asking me to foster another litter of puppies. He loves puppies, and babies. Fortunately, he is satisfied in the baby department since my youngest is fifteen, so puppies it is!

Welcome back!

Aw, I can’t imagine how much fun puppies would be! We’ll see how we do with the kittens and maybe (maybe!) try puppies in the future. My fiancee is already asking if we can keep one of the kittens, so I don’t know how successful we will be as fosters, hahaha!

Oh man. So many puppies would be ADORABLE but I would run away in horror. :P I had two puppies (at the same time) and it was just insanity. They chewed up everything and I didn’t know who to blame. Neither of them wanted to get trained to “go” outside and they would rile each other up to destroy more. They were both lady labs and they grew up into great dogs, but the year or so of puppyhood was exhausting.

At least kittens are pretty good at figuring out that litter box thing. Oh man… I would love so many cats!

Josie Jade

I can only imagine what a handful puppies would be! We have 2 of the 4 kittens running around the house (the other 2 are still in quarantine for an upper respiratory infection). They are already hanging from the shower curtain and curtains and getting in all of my plants! It’s going to be a long couple of weeks, haha! But we are loving it!

Bio

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. :)
