Happy Fourth of July!
Wow, it’s been a busy few days. It was my Dad’s 70th birthday on the weekend so we had a couple of parties for him. I bought him a huge mango cake which everyone but me seemed to love. It was one of those cakes that are less sweet. I’m kind of an oddball, I like my tea without any kind of added sweeteners, but I like my cake to be so sweet that my teeth practically jump out of my face in horror.
My step-sister, her husband and her baby girl recently arrived from China (where they live and work). So I had the pleasure of meeting my niece for the first time. She has such cute chubby cheeks that it makes my voice go up about 2 octaves as soon as I see her (what’s that about?)
The memorial for my hubby’s grandfather was also a couple of days ago, and even though memorials are never easy, it was nice to see so many people who loved him and offered their support to the family.
But through all the events I missed checking in with my Steepster friends… So on to the tea! I’m still enjoying this, not as an everyday tea, but it’s a nice occasional treat. The roasty marshmallow taste is even delicious in my travel mug, that smothers the lovely scent. Looking at the ratings I can see that this tea isn’t a hit with everyone, but thankfully it works for my taste buds.
