When I read the other tasting notes and tried my tea, I was confused. The color described ranged from golden yellow to coral and pink. Mine was a nice light yellow. Some people said hibiscus… no sense of hibiscus for me. ? Maybe I needed to steep longer I noticed a lot of finer bits in the bottom of the sample bag so I have no idea what my next brew will be like.
Nice pear flavor after lightly sweetening it. Thanks Hepatite for the swap! Good afternoon cuppa when I should be cleaning up the kitchen. It’s more fun to take a break.
On to other excitement… I lost 3.8 lbs this week even with no exercise because of my sprained knee. Of course I had gained 3 lbs last week because of the stupid knee. But at least I’m back on track!

I had this one today, also, and was just about to post! I drank mine unsweetened, and I wasn’t picking up any pear. Maybe I need to try this again with a bit of sugar, since I still have a little bit left.

I tried it iced and it was quiet pear-y, but it tasted a bit weak. I’d recommend it iced and overleafed.

You did awesome this week, weight wise. How’s the knee doing?

The knee is getting better but I still can’t exercise because it isn’t healed. I notice that every time I start to increase my exercise the knee is killing me later. I’m please with the weight loss but I need to work harder on being consistent. Up 3 lbs, down 3 lbs! Not great, but I feel good to do .8 when I can’t get any exercise. :)

I know exactly what you mean about the exercise. I screwed up my wrist bad in the fall (I fell, they thought it was broken, then said it was’t broken, then thought maybe it was broken, did a really expensive test to determine it wasn’t broken, blah blah blah…) and I really struggled with exercising then since a lot of what I do involves me using my wrist and hand. I did some running, but then last winter happened and I refuse to run in that much cold. And then I got really bad bronchitis. I was actually pretty pleased with myself that I only gained about 5 lbs in that whole time, but my clothes just don’t fit the same at all. I’ve lost so much muscle.

Just take it easy with the knee, do what you can but do not hurt yourself worse! I’m glad it’s getting better. Soft tissue damage can take a while to get better.

Bio

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; Fflavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking :-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say.
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. It’s new DW time!!!! In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send them to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
