Extended family Christmas fail: my uncle gave my mom (his sister) a tea-for-one set, and gave me a bathrobe. My mom doesn’t drink hot tea. I already have 4 bathrobes (2 of which were presents from said uncle).

So, anyway, Mom and I split the tea (for her to make and have iced), and she’s keeping the tea-for-one pot/cup to display. The tea itself is…well, not as delightful as I would like for a lemon tea to be. The black tea itself isn’t bad, but the lemon flavoring is a bit reminiscent of lemon scented dish soap. Now saying that, it’s more enjoyable than you’d think. Not something that I’d ever pick up again, but I’ll be able to drink it and finish off my half. It’s kind of comforting in a way I can’t describe. I’ll probably drink it when I’m simply thirsty or don’t want to have something that I’ll have to pay attention to.

My mother loves having lit candles and she thinks that a tealight holder with a lit tealight in the window is all sorts of pretty and cozy and whatnot. I’m sure it is. But I never light candles at home, I don’t have any suitable windows to light them and frankly would be likely to forget I had lit them if I had. At last count I possess 14 tealight holders… I totally understand about the bathrobes. When the time comes to do my birthday wishlist it will have the information of the amount of tealight holders in my possession and a request to not add to the collection on it, I think. I did that with towels once, since it seemed everybody who couldn’t come up with anything got me towels. I’ve still got some that I haven’t even unpacked yet. They’ll come out when it’s time to throw out some old ones.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
