I finished this sample. Although I enjoy the mintiness, I’m not feelin’ the apple. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy a good apple tea, it’s just the combination of flavors that doesn’t work for me. On my tongue, the sweetness seems a tad over-the-top paired with the mint and coconut. I’m glad I tried this tisane, but with all the other options out there, I’ll leave this one for others to enjoy.
A non tea related rant and rave
I know Steepster isn’t the appropriate place for this non tea-related rant and rave, but I’m not sure where else I can write this? Feel free to stop reading if you came for the tea review only.
Yesterday, I had 2 potential contractors do their assessment for estimates on the proposed extension for the home my hubby and I are buying. It wasn’t the best experience. The first guy spent an hour and a half trying to convince me not to do anything I wanted, and instead do a bunch of more expensive things that don’t interest me at all. The second guy mentioned some good ideas, took measurements, but seemed otherwise unprepared and told me that he would have to come back sometime next week to do the estimate. To say the least, I was unimpressed. I decided to exercise restraint and not take them both down in Ronda Rousey-style arm-bars (just kidding). But seriously, I was not at all happy. Thankfully our Real Estate Agent Tom was there. He is one of the sweetest and hard working guys I’ve met. Lucky for everyone, his presence tends to keep me feeling relaxed and happy (like a hot cup of tea on a cold day…with a splash of rum). I know he’s a business person, and being nice is part of the job, but I feel that he genuinely has a good heart. I wish I could hire him to do everything –there’s just something special about him. Through the entire process of selling our home, and buying the new one, he has kept me relatively calm, which is truly a miracle – I tend to be high strung and extremely bossy with important events like these. He somehow managed to hurdle over all my crazy demands. Unfortunately, Real Estate is all I can hire him to do, and we don’t want to be back on the market for at least a couple of decades. Sadly, other than the few remaining days until we take possession, this means no more Tom for me :(
The likelihood of many people reading this being within the area is slim to none, but I just want to give props where they are due. I doubt I can tell him how much I am a fan of his without seeming creepy, so instead I decided to rave about him here (Thanks for bearing with me, if you’ve read this far). If you ever happen to be on the market for a real estate agent in B.C. (lower mainland) I highly recommend that you include my agent Tom Edwards when you are interviewing agents http://www.northdeltahomes.com/home.php …Hmmm…I suppose now that we bought the house, he’s really our former agent? …hmmm…nope that thought makes me too sad… he’s still mine.
mine! mine! mine!
