I can’t help but feel that I’m missing some component for this tea. I mean, it should be magnificently delicious, right? But somehow its just ho-hum. A perfectly serviceable mint blend, but not memorable or inspired.
But good on a sore throat!

Time to cut the caffine for the day. And, as this cough still lingers, I wanted something nice and soothing.
Ahh, Silent Night. What a lovely mint blend.

I made a great cough remedy tea the other day. Really soothing on the hroat. Bring to a boil 4 cups water with a sliced lemon, cinnamon stick and sliced ginger. Then let cool. Add honey to sweeten. Worked really well. Hope you feel better soon.

That sounds like such a great idea! I may very well try that.

This was sipped down on Monday.
Its a nice mint black blend. Not my favorite by a long shot, but it was enjoyable while I had it.
This is one of those enjoyable yet slightly forgettable blends. I might bring it back some time, but its not critical. I’ve got other teas to tide me over until it wanders my way again.
And heaven knows I need a sipdown with all the new teas I’ve got!

That is exactly how I feel about this. Nice, but easily replaceable by any brand really

My morning yoga class was with the gentle yoga instructor, which was lovely, as I’m still recovering from whatever bugs I had.
So this afternoon I’m organizing things in my house, and drinking teas!
This is one of the teas that my Aunt and Uncle gave me for my birthday, and also some English Digestive buiscuts, which I love. I haven’t had them since I lived in the UK, so that was a delight.
This is an interesting blend. Very layered, with a very bold flavor to it. Its quite strong.
I feel like I’m going to have to fiddle with the steep time, but I’m enjoying it!

Sounds like you’re feeling a little better though, eh? Sounds like a nice day. I’m a fan of digestive biscuits too. :)

I’ve got a lot more teas to add to my cupboard from my birthday haul, but I got the teas I ordered for myself as a present. I am now drowning in teas, and its glorious!
I hate that you can’t buy Tower of London in any loose leaf size except a pound. But for my birthday I decided to buy it for myself, especially as my sister gave me a gorgeous silver tea tin big enough to hold a pound of tea.
Ahh, hello old friend. Your fruity, honey touched flavor has been gone from my house for too long. I am glad to have you here.

Happy-making post is happy. This tea sounds delightful.

Yep, I’m either fighting off some illness, or being optimistic and am actually sick but refusing to stay in bed.
I got home from work yesterday, ate soup, and dropped myself directly into bed.
Today parts of me are feeling better, but parts still feel bad. So I’m going off to work armed with six million cough drops and ginger tea, to guzzle down all day long.
Boo. I’ve already been sick this winter! No fair!

Evol Ving Ness

Hurray for ginger tea! Feel better.

And unfortunately I think I’m coming down with something. Again. I mean, honestly! I keep getting coughs and congestion and other unpleasantnesses. Boo.
So its time for my “I don’t feel well” tea. Lets hope pouring it down the gullet will help . Plus early to bed!

Evol Ving Ness

Nothing like ginger to ward off the demons. Hope you feel better in the morning.

Rosehips

Thanks!

Fjellrev

What? Again? I hope not!

I’ve brought this one along to work, to serve as an afternoon tea.
I like this one a lot. Its creamy and nice, but has been sadly neglected in my cupboard. Hurrah for work teas!

This morning seems so long ago! Whew, what a long day. Three day weekends can come down hard.
I’m liking this. Its not true love, or anything as dramatic as that, but its nice on a morning when I need to rush around madly.

Thank you, lovely Steepsters, for all the birthday wishes! I had a lovely day, and was given a great deal of tea, which needs a lot of cataloging, trying, and enjoying. Yay!
So in the spirit of “I have a million new teas in the cupboard” I’m working on killing some older teas of mine.
The scent of this was bang on, but it never quite gave me the apple joy I was hoping for. Alas! But it was nice while it lasted.

Happy birthday! I know what you mean- I’m still giddy over the tea stash I was given by various people for Christmas. This is a great hobby to have in terms of potential gift giving. ;)

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
