70

I have been a little quiet on here in the last couple of days and may be for a while longer. On Thursday night my beautiful baby boy Ebony passed away, he was only 1 year 3 months old. He came to me for fuss so I stroked him and then he clawed the carpet and within a few seconds he fell down onto his side and he was gone. The vet said it sounds like he was born with a heart defect that wasn’t caught in his examinations.

He leaves behind his brother who needs extra love and support as he has never been on his own before. Both me and my husband have taken some time off, for us this death is personal…I am unable to have children so my cats literally are treated like my own babies. To lose one so young and without warning is beyond shocking.

I post this message on this tea because the first post I made for this tea was me mentioning that I bought it because I had a beautiful black cat called Ebony. This was the first thing my husband could get me to drink after his death. He will always be missed and was taken much too early.

I may be on, I may not be… I just don’t know. So just to let people know I’m here from afar but just not ready to review yet. I don’t know when I will be.

I’m sorry Kayleigh. :( It’s never easy loosing a family member especially at only 15-months! You sound like a great Kitty Mommy! Now I understand why – KittyLovesTea – http://www.kittylovestea.co.uk/about-2/

We lost our two cats (16 yr calico, 8 yr Maine Coon) only about a year apart. It took us a while before we were ready for a new cat. Early this year we found a beautiful 1 yr old Maine Coon female and she has brought so much joy & life back into our childless home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSs77SabFOE&feature=youtube_gdata_player We wish the same for you & your husband.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is difficult to lose someone so close to your heart.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. My boys funeral was yesterday and I have been keeping his brother Ivory company while he’s getting used to being alone. My cold steeping mugs arrived so to keep me I have been using up a lot of tea samples to save me writing new reviews. Earl Black – 52 Teas and Rhubarb + Custard – Bluebird Teas were both exceptionally delicious!

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
