It is, again, the time of year when I NEED a pitcher (or two) of cold brewed tea in my fridge at all times. This particular tea is starting to show its age, but is still muy delicious. It tastes fabulous cold brewed but not so good hot. I’ll miss it when it’s gone.

On an unrelated note, I am grateful that, as a woman, I am allowed to wear skirts and dresses to work. My poor fellow male coworkers come to work in full business formal suits everyday. I am so sorry, fellas. I do get cold in the hyper AC environment, but that just means I get to enjoy hot tea all year so I don’t really mind. I honestly get peeved when an organization dictates that females must wear skirts (some schools I’ve worked in) and males must wear pants. I find it unfair and gender biased. Why should a girl have to suffer cold and snow in a skirt? Why should a boy get hot and sweaty in pants? Let the girls wear pants! It’s pretty common these days. We don’t live the 16th century anymore. And while our culture might not be ready for boys to wear skirts (though I wish we were all a little more accepting and welcoming of diversity) at least let them wear shorts in hot weather. End rant.

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…
