It’s dreary out so to lift everyone’s spirits, Let’s name something you’re thankful for today. GO!

I posted that on facebook and so far I’ve had a few people answer it. It’s making my day a bit happier. What are you thankful for?

So, I’m feeling lousy and I’m trying to lift my spirits and distract myself from feeling so rough by drinking tea. I had a cup of Bollywood Chai from Davidstea this morning from a secret stash that I forgot I had!
Then I tried to drink one of those Keurig (sp?) Black chai teas. The first one I added sugar to before trying it and I couldn’t even drink it because it was so sweet, so I tried again without sugar and it was STILL too sweet so both of those got tossed. Now I’m onto this tea and it’s just right.

Although… I’m starting to realize that I’m kind of sick of this one. I don’t know why,… maybe I’ve had it too much… probably… but yeah, I think once I finish this one which will be soon, I’ll take a break from it.

Tonight I’m going over the border to the U.S. of A. and getting my tea order from Adagio!! I can’t wait to try their teas! I’ve had two before and they were pretty good, so I can’t wait to see what I think now after a few years without trying much from them. I bought… well… like 20teas… it’s kind of embarrassing how much I bought, but I did get sample sizes of all but two of them, so that’s pretty good… right…?

So today I’m thankful for the warm soothing comfort that tea is bringing me today and making me feel a bit better.

Thankful for the “Oh!I get it!” light bulb faces of my fifth-grade church kids. Good for a smile every Sunday.

I’ll add another: Pie Day. A work tradition started by a gracious and generous coworker when we are departmentally stressed. Mine was lemon. Three inches tall.

That sounds like a great tradition! And delicious!

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
