drank Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas
158 tasting notes

Yumminess… I had forgotten just how tasty this tea is. I need to figure out how I can keep myself from going through my tin of this too quickly… Increasing the rating…

Yesterday I went ice skating to actually train (not just coach) for the first time in about a year. I found out two important things: One that I can still skate and pull of my jumps and spins and two that not skating for a year and then putting on your skates will result in many painful blisters. Also, I woke up this morning with my entire body aching. I either have to do this more often or never again… hahaha… To ease my aching muscles, this tea came to the rescue.

I love the sprinkles in this tea. The colors make me smile. The buttery vanilla scent (both in the dry leaves and even more so in the steeped tea) is incredibly seducing and I seem to always give in. With a little bit of sweetener, this tea never fails me. It is instant smiles in a cup.

Sadly, while I am smiling and content, my body still feels like I fell out of the window of a five story building… Argh… Why do I love ice skating so much that I am willing to put up with this!?!?! Silly me… : ) At least I get birthday Cake Tea!

I vote for “more often” (since you just admitted loving it) : )

Ninavampi

: ) I think that I might have to. Thanks for the vote!

Keep skating. If you stop you’ll end up like the rest of us. We bundle trips to the bathroom with trips to the fridge because its too far to walk if done separately.

Ninavampi

K S you made me laugh out loud… OK, I will keep up the skating and try to avoid your handy suggestion of wasting fewer calories by economizing footsteps… : )

Cheryl

Shhhhh K S … don’t scare her about getting old
That made me lol too.

Preach on, K S … Unlike Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory, holding still and muttering, “I am the master of my own bladder” does not work.

K S

Oh wow.. Sheldon… the little Spock episode had m crying it was so funny. And they drink a lot of tea. Not good tea but it is tea.

Kittenna

Bahaha, just watched the little Spock episode. Love that show!

K S – also highly amused at your earlier comment :D

I understand your pain! I trained for the Olympics as a shot putter when I was young (16-27 even after having kids). Had an injury that put me out. When I was in my late 30’s early 40’s I coached guys and girls highschool weights and throwing and as a coach you demo…ha, ha, ha…what a show off I was…till I could not lift my arms above my waist! Stupid me! Sore and feeling really bad! Now I can’t do any weight exercise because of the fibromyalgia and I used to bench press 250 lbs.! Humbleing! (You never know what old people used to do when you look at them do you!)

Indigobloom

Oh man, I feel your pain… when I did squats for the first time (properly that is) a few weeks ago, I thought I was going to permanently walk like a penguin! so sore…
So I second everyone else, continue skating! keep up with the things that bring you joy :)

K S

I was just reading some of the comments to my wife. She called us dorks… Is that a bad thing?

Indigobloom

I’m proud to be a dork! :P

Ninavampi

Hahaha… K S, as far as I know being a tea dork is a good thing! ; ) Please do thank your wife for the complement! : D Tea Dorks join forces! I agree with Indigobloom, I am also proud to be a dork!

Bonnie- Wow… That’s amazing! I know how much a sport is missed… I won nationals (Ecuador Nationals that is…) quite a few years ago, but then had to quit because I had hairline fractures in both of my legs and it got to the point where it hurt all the time. I will always miss it at a competitive level… My Grandma also is an amazing woman, being older by no means equates to being older or untalented!

Indigobloom

YES!!! Dorks unite!! :P

TheTeaFairy

You poeple are just wonderful! Love all your comments :)

SimpliciTEA

I’ll throw my hat into this ring (as a dork, that is)!

CHAroma

Ninavampi, I know exactly what you’re talking about! I love horseback riding but hadn’t ridden in a while. I stupidly went out for a 5 hour trail ride and then woke up the next day and was surprised that I didn’t feel bad. So, I went riding again. The next day, I literally could not walk. At all. For an entire week. I’m not joking! I had to crawl around and call out of work. Stupid stupid me. Hahaha! So yeah, don’t wait too long between skating and definitely don’t skate 2 days in a row if it’s been a while. ;)

Ninavampi

Thanks for the excellent advice… I believe I have learned my lesson!

Bio

I love tea and have since I was a little girl. Once I could buy my own tea, I began to explore and learn about the extensive and delicious world of tea!

Also, love my French Bulldog (named Sencha…) and my tea oblivious boyfriend. I enjoy ice skating (I am a part time coach), reading, writing, baking, running, and lots of sweets!

My favorite teas tend to be on the sweeter side. Both flavored and plain teas are great to me. Currently going through a flavored tea phase. Enjoying it greatly! : )
