I’m having trouble with this tea. The rosemary and “cherries” (pink peppercorns, not a cherry fruit at all) give it a strong medicinal scent and flavor. Plain, it is tough for me to sip. I’ll try it with milk, then milk and sugar, and see if it fares any better. My husband likes it, so there’s that; to my palate, it feels very unbalanced. Unfortunately, I don’t know yet what it’s missing.

I love tasting things. Slowly, I’m getting better at it.

I am a coffee convert; the 5+ cups of strong coffee I used to drink every day has trickled down to 1-2 cups a week, if a pot’s already brewed and I’m feeling lazy. Otherwise, tea all the way!

It’s been a few months now, which is enough for me to know that everyone likes different things about their cup. Personally I like my teas the way I like my men—strong and naked, with no artificial flavors or preservatives. Also dry, and in a tin. Hah!

Life is interesting and occasionally irritating. Because of this, I am sometimes laser-eyed, but a nice cup of tea usually helps.
