So yesterday, I walked into work and my boss tells me “You’re working from home tomorrow.” And I was all stupid and said, “Huh? Wha? Why? Who said so?” I hope his respect for me didn’t just disappear after that senseless string of questions. Turns out the Friday before Easter tends to be real quiet since a lot of people take off to be with family and stuff. Neat! So here I am this morning, sipping my second cup of tea before work even starts because I still wake up at 7am, even though I don’t have my 1.5 hr commute today. :(

But this tea is really tasty so it’s okay to be awake! Last night I had taken a trip to DT since my bro in law is in town from Germany and his wife is addicted to two blends from David and needed refills. So of course I had to get some samples to try. And they were doing this promo where you get a free cup to go if you buy at least 2oz of tea! But I had to go to dinner straight after tea shopping so they put the bagged teas into a pouch for me to drink later. How nice is that!

So anyway, I had a cup last night before bed. It was tasty. Green and fresh, but also syrupy sweet in the way only rose can be. Smells and tastes just like my dad’s roses actually. Love it. The green base got a bit astringent but not so much that I didn’t enjoy it. Plus, I saved my leaves and cold brewed it overnight. I’m drinking that result now and it is divine. I’ve had rose congou black teas before, but I think I really prefer the green base. Tastes fresh and summery.

The end. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
