The boyfriend is out, the dog is on my feet, I have a book in hand, and I’m on a blueberry kick tonight. Love this one, I will be very sad when it is gone. Looks like I only have enough for one more cup after this.

This is a little too tart for me tonight so I ended up adding a little bit of sugar. I find this tea very enjoyable. You definitely get the blueberry out of the sip! That was what I was looking for to start my evening. I really like the color the liquid of this tea is too, just beautiful.

drank Moroccan Mint by Rishi Tea

Again, wishing this had more mint in it but this is actually a really good tea. It is also one that I can make a whole kettle’s worth of and the boyfriend and I will split it. Good tea to start a hopefully relaxing afternoon :)

Boiling 2 min, 30 sec 4 tsp 35 OZ / 1035 ML

Made this on my way out the door this morning. It wasn’t cool enough to drink until quite a bit into my morning! I decided not to do it over ice this morning as I can’t seem to get the balance of the ice, leaf, and sweetener correct.

This morning there wasn’t as much of a strawberry flavor and more of a bitter taste at the end of the sip. Still enjoyable and it kept me full-ish until right before lunch. I love that.

Happiness in a cup! Looking at the ingredients, I don’t know how but I am getting a wonderful muffin type flavor with this cup that I am absolutely loving. At least for my unrefined palate, I think this tastes like a well balanced cup that is making me want to stay up later than I should with another cup and a book. Great tea to end my long day on!

I’ve had this one mixed with their Strawberry Lemonade Herbal and loved it. Decided I needed to see how it was on its own too.

The dry leaf smells very citrus-y. I think I am getting grapefruit and orange. I absolutely love the color of this as it poured into my cup! It mostly tastes like strawberry with a good hint of citrus, I’m thinking the grapefruit. The addition of a sweetener seems to deepen the flavors, making it an even more enjoyable cup. I really like this in the Winterberry Blend, iced and hot, but I think I like it on it’s own just as much. I know that Teavana gets a bad rap around here but I am finding a few that I really enjoy!

This is one of my favorite teas! I went through about an ounce in a week when I first got it. So fruity and tasty!

Sundaysipping – How do you store it? Is this one of the ones that I have to be careful about what kind of tin it is in due to the citrus?

sundaysipping

I actually don’t know. I use 12oz mason jars to store my tea — they keep air out beautifully, can be thrown into the dishwasher (which gets any lingering odors out), and I keep them in a cabinet so I’m not worried about light exposure. The Teavana tins do a great job of preventing aroma-leakage, but I found them expensive and extremely difficult to de-scent once I’d used up the tea they were holding.

I guess because it’s a tea with grapefruit it in it could require one of the citrus-friendly Teavana tins.

Kayla

Thanks :)

Hope it helps! :-)

I tried Winterberry in store yesterday and it was super tasty but intensely sweet. I’m really curious about all the teas they have but I’ve had bad luck with so many (and a few really amazing winners), that it’s really hard to want to pick up 50g in one shot.

Kayla

If there are ones in my cupboard you are interested in, I could send them your way so you can try them without investing in a whole 50g.

A wonderful lazy Saturday. The boyfriend and I went to lunch and I mailed of a TTB. Came back and cleaned up a little, only so I could make a new mess in the kitchen. I made my first attempt of “Vicks Shower Disks” using the recipe found here http://beingfrugalbychoice.com/2012/03/homemade-vicks-vapor-shower-disks.html. And I just threw http://www.alexandracooks.com/2008/05/20/i-love-david-archuleta/ in the oven and thought that this tea would complement them wonderfully.

Sadly this is the last of this wonderful tea. This one always reminds me of home. It is for sure going on the re-order list!

Added sugar to this one again. I find this to be a very tasty morning treat :) I absolutely love mint teas and this one isn’t overpowering so it’s nice to wake up with. It’s also kind of soft, if I can use that word to describe tea, and creamy. It’s like someone is wrapping a blanket around me.

I don’t actually have this one. I blended the two teas that is used to create it, the Strawberry Grapefruit Xue Long Green Tea and the Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea. I did the same the other day doubled over ice, it was wonderful, but never got around to logging it. Tonight I am trying it hot to see just how much I like these two together.

Very yummy. Very fruity. Very fun. Although, I do have to say I prefer it iced.

drank White Peony by Rishi Tea

I do not often have a white tea in my stash. I don’t really know why that is but I do know that I worry about the temperature as I have yet to find a tea thermometer. I just had to pick this one up during my last visit to The London Tea Room as Peonies are my favorite flower.

I took the kettle off the burner right before it was going to start boiling. I then took off the lid and opened the spout as I prepared my teapot (which is fast becoming my favorite way to steep). I do not know the temperature that it would have ended up at, but I didn’t want it boiling temperature when I poured it over the leaves. It took a whole spoonful of sugar, per cup, for this to be tasty to me. I think it is the astringency that was masking the flavor for me. Overall, it is a beautiful tea. Not a bad way to start my night of relaxing (finally!).
