I’m surrounded by boxes from the move. Boxes, boxes, boxes everywhere, and one of them contains my teapot! GASP!!! The horror!!!! I feel certain that I labelled the box with my teapot to be opened first, but I can’t find it :O I’ve resorted to using the old one from my family’s house… it’s just not the same. lol…I’m such a whiner eh?

Today is a good day (missing teapot aside) it’s my hubby’s fortieth birthday. I was hoping to throw him a big birthday party but it just so happened that the construction start date for the reno was booked for today, and we didn’t want to delay that. So instead I’m taking him out for dinner tonight. After packing, cleaning, prepping, and reno planning the slower pace of a quiet dinner out is a welcome change. When we got to the house last night I was happy to see that my tea order was waiting here for me. I had promised myself that I would order from another place other than 52teas, to broaden my horizons, but I somehow placed 2 orders with them again. My reasoning for the 1st order was that I was running out of honeybush, and the second order was because they had a sale…yeah…I have no self control when it comes to this company

This tea has a lovely toasted taste, but I’m having trouble tasting the cherry cheesecake aspect. The smell of the dry mix has it, but in the sip, I feel like the genmaicha buries the cherry flavor more than I’d like. I occasionally get the taste, but it’s like a momentary whiff in the background, and then it’s gone again. I’ll have to experiment a bit to see if I can coax the flavors out. Perhaps it just needs a bit more time to cure? Hmmm…

Happy birthday to him! And moving always seems to mess up one’s tea enjoyment haha.

Genmaicha iced latte maybe?

@Incendiare- So true, it seems I misplace my teapot every time I move. It can’t be too far, it was one of the last things I packed.
@Ze_Teamaker – That sounds good. I’ve never made latte before, iced or otherwise. I’m sure it will be a worthwhile experiment though.

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
