A hint of orange with some sweeter spices in there (cinnamon, maybe? it’s hard to tell), this is a lovely tea that I’m quite happy to start my day off with.

Trying something new with Steepster today. Due to the snippets only showing the first certain number of characters from a community review, I’m sharing my thanks, my stories, my personal details later in my tealogs. Why? Because while I truly LOVE hearing about all of your lives, when I’m looking up a tea, I only want to read details of the tea specifically in those blurbs. Thus…

Thanks to TeaTiff for sharing such a lovely brew for Day Two of the 12 Days of Christmas Swap. This sipdown is a bit of a sad one, because this is the kind of tea that reminds me of growing up, and the kind of thing my Mom would make for me.

1.5 tsp in 12oz.

Flavors: Orange Zest

200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

That’s a really good idea.

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
