I declared today my Butiki Day! I’m being a brave woman and drinking a whole big pot of Guayusa at 4:30pm because the closing ceremony of the Olympics will be on tonight and I intend to stay up and enjoy myself!
(I enjoy myself anyway!)

The Summer Days are beginning to cool finally or so it seems. We had the longest stream of days over 90 degree weather on record! Today, this pot of creamy tea tasted like my childhood Summer’s, listening for the ice cream truck melody…‘All around the mulberry bush the monkey chased the weasel’…playing rickety rack as it slowly came down the street. I could buy a 10 cent creamsicle being careful to eat it JUST SO! (Outside first then the creamy vanilla ice cream last…the reverse of how you eat an Oreo cookie).

Who cares about an energy boost when the flavor is so creamy and delicious. I sweetened mine. There’s even a little tingle that I like. Stacy know’s how to create her flavors well, like a magician with a wand. What I know is that I’ll always be a kid at heart and I love my creamsicles cold or hot like this yummy tea!

There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
