Yum! My boyfriend made this for me! :) He came out with my huge container of Adagio’s Rooibos Vanilla and made a funny face. haha! Wait until he sees the teas coming!

This was so good! He added sugar. This one doesn’t need sugar. The vanilla is so nice and comforting.

Mixed this with Adagio’s Peppermint. Reminded me of some toothpaste I tried that was flavored vanilla mint. A good combination. Warm and refreshing. Plus, theres no caffeine, so hopefully I’ll sleep a tad earlier today. This herbal would be a great replacement to candy mints or gum. My mouth feels so fresh and clean!

I probably shouldn’t lay down for a little bit though… peppermint relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter, and I sometimes have acid reflux… >_<

I bought a pound of this a while ago. This has been my favorite rooibos for a long time now. Goes great with or without sugar and/or milk. I love drinking this at night. It’s very comforting, and the vanilla doesn’t taste artificial.

One of my favorite white teas, very smooth and just enough blueberry – will be great iced in the summer!

2nd resteep, 190F, 4 min. Roses, honeydew, chrysanthemum — I can’t pick just one. All I know is this — it blisses me out! g

Resteep at 195 F. 3 min was almost too long. It got a little strong. The scent of the golden liquid is like roses and the flavor is really complex with some astringency. This one is growing on me =)

This leaf is so fluffy that 2.5 gm is a heaping Tbsp. Dry leaf aroma fresh, green, hint of spice. Yes, Virginia, this tea IS mostly buds! 12 oz water, 200 F, 2 min yields clear gold liquor with mild floral scents. Astringency almost imperceptable, good flavor but hard to describe. If I were blind tasting, I would waver from green to oolong to white. Most enjoyable, especially since the buds winked at me from the infuser, evoking a smile at 5 am.

Whenever I open my tin of Leo I am always charmed by the fact that it smells almost exactly like an orange creamsicle. It is a very refreshing blend. The citrus notes aren’t artificial or bitter, but very creamy. I steeped it for 3 minutes and got a very robust cup. This uplifting blend is exactly what I need right now. I’m writing a thesis! Yay.

I decided to have this tea this afternoon when I thought I’d need it as a comfort tea. But turns out it is a celebratory tea.

Just when I thought that this month’s budget had been bent over and had dirty, dirty things done to it (kitty surgery + biopsy, $600+ of car maintenance, new car battery), I discovered today that this month is a magic month. Yay for biweekly paydays! And yay for three in one month! Now, instead of mourning the dip into our emergency fund, I am celebrating the unexpected black ink at the bottom of our budget month!

Chai is always a treat for me. Because of the time it takes to make (I do half milk, half water, tea, sugar all thrown into a pot and brought to a boil for 5 mins) this is an evening tea but due to sugar and caffeine, this is something I only do when I can stay up somewhat late. On top of that, the rich spiciness makes it something I have to be in the mood for. Usually that mood is for the tea-equivalent of curling up on the couch with an afghan. And that’s really what I thought I’d be using it for tonight.

But no. I get to use it while I relax and go “ahhhh!” and bask in the celebratory glory of a surprise magic month while I surf the net to figure out what teas I’m going to buy with some of this month’s overflow. Seriously. Gonna buy tea.

I’m feeling especially chipper tonight so I decided to go heavy on the leaf and pretty much doubled it. The milk keeps the spiciness from being overwhelming but I can tell it is there. And I like it. I think I’m even going to try resteeping, something I haven’t attempted with chai, so we’ll see how that goes. After all, it’s going to take a while to figure out what teas I’m going to get.

YAY!

Used my new ingenuiTea (which is way cool) with this tea. Light and pleasantly sweet. Still good after three infusions! In fact, I think I’ll try a fourth…:)
