I’m sitting in the Fort Lauderdale airport right now waiting for our flight back to the crazy snow that I hear we got. I’m not looking forward to it but what can ya do? I’m getting back from a 5 day Caribbean cruise on a Royal Caribbean ship: Liberty of the Seas. It’s an absolutely amazing ship and it was fantastic to get away.

Anyway, I had this tea as it was the main one on the ship. I didn’t think it was too bad a t first but my husband commented how it was really not that good and then I got paying attention. It really wasn’t that good at all. It was a plain black tea as advertised with no frills and no fuss. But it wasn’t even decent in my opinion. It’s too bad they couldn’t have had something nicer.
I’ve known people to travel with loose leaf tea before and maybe I should have done the same but I really didn’t want to worry about anything. Loose-leaf tea looks weird and can look like other things. Better to just drink what’s on the ship.

Anyways tea aside the trip was wonderful. We didn’t do a ton of extras and that’s ok. It was so relaxing and nice. I’m very happy we went. We hope to go away again in the next year or two. I think we’re hooked on vacationing. Lol

Bio

I’m a 30yr old aspiring writer. I’ve written several short stories that I’m looking to get published someday soon. Currently I’m actively looking for markets and avenues to get published.

I’m also looking to finish a novel that I’ve been writing for the last several years.

I work as a paginator (I do page layout for our local weekly newspaper) and absolutely love it! I’m also an amateur photographer and “mom” to two adorable “fur babies” (I have two awesome cats). I’m married to an absolute amazing man who “puts up” with my tea obsession.

It wasn’t until a few years after high school that I finally became interested in tea. I started with Orange Pekoe double double (milk not cream) and peppermint. Since that time, I’ve really opened up to other kinds of tea and I’ve well… I’ve kind of just went nuts since then.

I don’t drink much bagged tea anymore. It’s mostly loose leaf in my cupboard. The only except are a couple that were given to me and they sound too good!

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 teas are rapidly becoming a favourite too. But, they must be flavoured white teas.

I don’t care for mate, green, oolongs, matcha, or puerh (although the puerh cake tea I have may convert me to a puerhs).

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

Keep Calm and Put The Kettle On!
