Taking a break from “foam rolling” my rotator cuff in order to try a sample of this tea. I really do have a lot of physical therapy gadgets in my apartment now! Thanks for the sample Stacy.

So it seems like I have a fondness for Indian white teas, they somehow seem more flavorful than the Chinese ones. Is that a sacrilege? Compared to the Doke silver needle I had yesterday, the Glenburn seems both lighter and sweeter. I am really enjoying the fruity notes of this tea and am definitely getting the juicy pear. I bet this would be an amazing cold brew — anyone tried that yet? Other flavors I’m getting from this are nutty (mostly almond) and floral. I wouldn’t say I am getting buttery from it, but I have really enjoyed this a lot. It’s tasty! I think I will stick to white teas from India and Nepal as they are flavorful.

Foam rolling is one of those “hurts so good” type things. My husband is a personal trainer so I had to be the guinea pig while he was taking his classes.

A juicy pear tea sounds divine! I bet it would be good iced!

I’m still trying to figure out what I can do with the foam roller. It also feels good to put a golf ball in between you and the wall and roll it around :)
