On the 11th day of Christmas I give many thanks to Sil for sending us this particular tea. Well, here we are Christmas Eve and I’m still waiting on packages to arrive (before the hubbins gets home) to wrap. But Amazon assures me they will arrive today…fingers crossed! So I got up when I normally would for work knowing I had wrapping and cooking in my future.

We’re going to my hubbins “Aunt’s” house for dinner and she never has anything gluten free for me to eat. So I made up a cup of this tea (in a new hot pink mug from our friend’s daughter) and then I got down to making some gluten free turkey meatballs and sauce. (Which smell/taste awesome.) This tea had a nice smokey kick to it…this must have been the tea I was smelling when I thought it was Day 9! Oddly enough I also enjoy a good single malt whisky and this is just wow. I see where the comparison comes in!

Sorry this review is all over the map…I think I’ve had too much of this tea this morning! :)

Well at least two of us enjoy this so far…i consider that a rousing success even if no one else does. It’s smoother and more interesting than i thought it would be lol

The Purrfect Cup

Yeah I would love to get my hands on more. But the shipping is a killer!

Sil

Indigobloom

The Purrfect Cup

That was totally a typo on my part! Thanks for catching it!! Should have read (and now does)“then I got to making” ooopsie!

Babble

I want to go to toronto for the tea convention too. I just worry it will be so cold.

Sil

Rachel, worse case scenario you can borrow some of my multiple jackets for teh duration. Lol

Babble

Have you ever been before? Do you know how big it is?

Indigobloom

This is the first year. We aren’t sure how big it will be just yet but there are tons of tea companies in the city.
The guy who heads the Tea Guild also teaches the sommelier program at George Brown so he knows alot of people.

Indigobloom

Profile

Bio

I am a tea lover, a wife, and mother of three cats (all rescues). I love to read, and to write. I’m also a BIG fan of the BBC’s Sherlock as well as Doctor Who.

I started drinking and enjoying tea (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) when my grandmother first introduced me to tea with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there.

I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana aka my gateway to loose tea. But my taste has expanded along with my love of tea. Sometimes I right about tea on my blog – Gal In The Grey Hat.
