Happy New Year, everyone!
This morning, I was in pretty rough shape. Doing a little better now. Woke up completely stuffed up (the heater has been working overtime lately since it is super cold out and that has been angering my allergies). I’m also half tired, a little hung over, and my brain just doesn’t want to function properly. I decided I wanted to start off with a gentle tea and opted for this one. The honey notes are so soothing. Normally, I would go with a strong breakfast tea but I wanted a lot of flavor and complexity and a gentle alertness. I’m slowly starting to recover. I had such a wonderful night last night. Normally, we do huge parties at our house but since both my husband and I had been super busy lately we didn’t want the added stress of hosting a big party. Instead, we ended up visiting my best friend in Philly and had a small gathering of just 6. We played games, drank, and then went to the roof of a nearby building to watch fireworks. It was really nice. Here is a pic of me & the hubby on the roof (2 hoodies and a snowboarding jacket and of course, I was still cold): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1428774404024535&set=a.1402962459939063.1073741830.100006759666084&type=1&theater

I have to go in to work today but I’m currently debating whether or not to visit a friend. They are hosting a Winter Classic party. It would be really nice to catch up with some friends and see the Winter Classic but they do have 2 newborn babies which I’m not sure if I can handle right now. I’m pretty content just chilling here in my jammies, catching up on the internet, and playing my new crystal singing bowl. My husband had ordered a singing bowl for me on behalf of his parents for Christmas but it didn’t make it here until yesterday. I have a singing bowl collection and this is my first crystal bowl. I love this bowl! There is just something magical about singing bowls.

I love the singing bowls!!! Don’t have any yet, but I always play with my aunt’s when I go to her house.

Butiki Teas

Nicole-They are so awesome! I find them to be really good at releasing stress and even help with hangovers. If you ever decide to get one, Silver Sky Imports is really awesome. I stalk them on ebay for good deals and they often run 20% off specials on their website, though their ebay auctions are often cheaper than they discount. They have recordings of each bowl they sell, they appropriately package the bowls, and they are very good quality.

Nicole

Oooo… off to Ebay I go! Thanks for the recommendation.

Butiki Teas

Here is a link for them: http://www.ebay.com/usr/silverskyimports. If you want a really good price, it can sometimes take weeks to find a really great deal. :)

That’s cool that you collect singing bowls!

I hope your allergies will get better soon. Mine have been going wonko too. So annoying.

Bio

My taste for tea started at an early age. As a child, I would frequently enjoy a cup of tea with my family. Tea has always been a significant part of my life, through all the challenges and all the accomplishments and celebrations. Naturally, I became interested in the variety of high quality teas and the very culture that encompasses tea. Today, I want to share my passion and love of tea through Butiki Teas.
