I haven’t slept worth nothing this week. I think tonight I might though from just pure tiredness.
My husband has been away this week for work… and I miss him… a lot. It’s weird falling asleep alone.

But tonight in the hopes of helping me sleep, I’ve brewed this one up. I don’t mind it, but I don’t care for the licorice. I think just a sprinkle of spearmint would be better.

The colour of this one is beautiful though. The hibiscus turns it just the faintest peach colour when it combines with the soft pale yellow of the lemon/orange/chamomile. A beautiful soft colour. And I must say, it is very well displayed in my 4oz double walled clear glasses. :)

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
