157 Tasting Notes
made this to go with BLTs to snack on while my boy and I watch bad horror movies in light of fall being on it’s way. :)
A big thank you to JENN for this sample. And thank you DAISY for the inspiration to go make a cup with a splash of rum.
Yes, here comes another tasting note of Twinings Peppermint from me, haha.
The boyfriend made me my current favorite bedtime drink. Hot peppermint tea with coconut milk & honey. Except he accidentally put brown sugar instead of honey, but it’s still yummy.
In other news, I went through with dying my hair back red :D Here ’tis! http://i53.tinypic.com/10wuool.png Crappy picture but I snapped that one quickly before about passing out. Tiring day!
Mmmm. Liquid campfire. Perfect for the coming of fall. Added a touch of brown sugar and maple for a super yummy treat. :)
Florence and some beautiful piano music to start my morning. Ahhh. Lovely.
Decided to dye my hair red today :) And have the great idea of being Chucky the doll for halloween ;)
Love this tea so much. Sort of like red hots taste wise, but not burn your mouth spicy. Naturally very sweet. The rooibos goes so well with the flavors. But I too, like the black tea version. It’s nice this is naturally caffeine free, though.
And speaking of red hots. I’ve been missing my red hair for a while and can’t decide whether to go back. I always miss my red, especially being such a fire ball. haha. Fits my personality. And it works well with my changing blue/green eyes and pale skin tone well; when I worked at a coffee shop everyone thought I was a natural redhead. (Naturally I’m sort of a dirty blonde with reddish tones.)

And here’s me with red hair – http://i54.tinypic.com/346ammf.png, http://i51.tinypic.com/xf98vl.png
Hum. What to do. Girls and their hair.
Accidently let this bag steep for 27 minutes :| , and it was STILL awesome. I was busy portioning out some tea samples for fellow Steepster Maxypoo, And then I remembered my tea was steeping.. and I’m like.. $#%@!!!!!!!!!!
But surprisingly… it was not bitter at all. Very, very good on the contrary. Beautiful Thai flavors, lovely hint of vanilla, and oh so smooth and buttery. YUM!
My new tea obsession just may be this: warming this back up and turning it into a hot latte, using about 50/50 tea and coconut milk and adding a bit more honey. Coconut milk goes so well with the flavors. Soo soothing. The iced latte version is awesome too, but tonight I’m snuggling up with this in hot latte form curled up in my big fluffy blanky, trying to get myself in a better mood..
You could also make these iced tea packets using half the water recommended and keep the concentrate on hand in your refrigerator for yummy iced and hot lattes. :)
Yep… this has already earned itself a permanent spot on my tea shelf. Harney had sent me a free sample years ago of this and I forgot how much I instantly loved it. Today was like rekindling an old flame. A tasty Thai flame from Bangkok. Those foreign ones, I tell ya… get me every time.
AND WOAH the moon is bright tonight! Actually about took my breathe away as I was coming up the stairs and saw the sky lit up and the moon beaming through the window. Breathtakingly gorgeous. When the moon hits your eye…
My big Harney order arrived. I should be more excited..
I could bury my head in this bag all day. Ahhhh. Smells so amazing.
My boy and I are relaxing after some intense yoga with a nice glass of iced Lemon Aid. This is better than lemonade and better for you. No sugar necessary. Smooth, bold, naturally sweet, herby, lemony goodness. Since it’s not a permanent I might just have to order some herbs and try to make some myself.
