Backlogging. Sunday the 19th = my 30th birthday!! Happy birthday to me!

Out for a fancy dinner, dessert, and drinkies the night before with my two best girl friends, I wasn’t feeling the greatest the next morning. So a plain Ceylon for me was tasty and soothing. I had been planning on drinking something special but felt I should save it for when I was feeling better and better able to enjoy it. This Ceylon has always reminded me of a nicer, better quality version of the standard black bagged teas my dad used to make me when I was sick. Just one steep with a bowl of cereal with raspberries and almond milk.

Thanks everybody!! It’s been pretty good being 30 so far. =)

Caitlin ~~ I just recently discovered almond milk and I am loving it. I made stovetop chai with it this morning (tealog to come, but not tonight).

LiberTeas ~~ We celebrated for 3 days (3 for 30!!). On Sunday, my mom cooked. A roasted garlic and rosemary leg of lamb, herb roasted potatoes, cold salads (dill pea, Moroccan carrot, cranberry zucchini, and Waldorf). And drinkies, of course. My fav cake for dessert – four thick spongy layers with a Kahlua and Frangelico bath, two with cream filling and one with chocolate, and dark chocolate frosting.

Steph, LL, and Azure ~~ Go Virgos! My cousin Matt’s birthday is the same day as yours, LL. My b-i-l’s birday is two days after mine.

Caitlin

Wow that cake sounds amazing! It also sounds like it would go good with a cup of plain black tea – mmmm. Also I have never made chai with almond milk but I have to try that! Its awesome in smoothies!

Oddly, I do not like the texture of it in smoothies. Although, I find milk, yogurt, and soy milk to be fine.

Profile

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
