Will have to do a full review later on this wonderful 1st flush Darjeeling. I just finished my sample that Stacy sent. It is a chilly, rainy day in Atlanta and I am enjoying a delicious bowl of homemade soup which includes carrots, celery, sweet potatoes, garlic, kale, fresh parmesan and chicken. My husband found the recipe on the internet. I love homemade soup and tea on a rainy autumn day! I just wish I could spend the rest of the day checking out my new teas from Butiki instead of going to work. But if I don’t work, I won’t have any money for tea!

Oops, forgot to add this to the database. Thanks for adding it! Don’t you just love homemade soup? Last night I made a huge pot of my world famous veggie soup for my hubby since he was feeling sick.

What a nice wife! Sounds like the perfect medicine for your husband, and hopefully you gave him his favorite tea as well. I’m sorry I didn’t put the picture in, but I’m glad to see you did. I am not that tech savvy.

Butiki Teas

Aw, thanks! He is pretty spoiled. I make him all sorts of tea but told him no sugar when he is sick, so he had our Creamy Eggnog sugarless and some genmaicha. Tonight I will boil him a pot of water with grated ginger for a good 30 minutes then add some tea at the end. No worries, its really easy for me since I have the original picture on my computer. :)

When he gets sick, I pamper him so much. I used to give him a bell to ring so that I would bring him whatever he needs but he abused that privilege so no more bell for him. Hahaha.

You are funny Stacy. I’m not going to tell my husband about the bell idea! He’s the type you have to pretty much leave alone when he is sick, which is a little tough for me, since I’m an RN and my natural instinct is to be nurturing to sick people. BTW, I’ll have to try the Creamy Eggnog on my next order!

I am a nurturer too but there is a limit. The bell would go off every time I just settled in downstairs. Sometimes it was a legitimate request for water, food, tissues, etc but then he would also ring the bell for a hug, kiss, to talk, etc. After about 20 rings, I said this isn’t going to work out. Mmmm, I really recommend the Creamy Eggnog. Its one of my current favorites.

Bio

Tea became a passion for me a year or so ago. I fell into it almost by accident, but now I would say it has captured me. Tea is more than something tasty to sip on, it is an experience-it helps create a mood and is quite interesting to read about and study. I discovered loose tea at the tea store at my mall. I was looking for alternatives to Coke Zero and white wine. Say what you will about that mall chain, but I’m sure it has raised awareness about tea where I live, in the land of bagged mass produced black tea prepared with lots of sugar, Atlanta, Georgia. That’s what happened with me, and then I started perusing the internet and found Steepster.

When I take on an interest or a hobby, I go into it full force and become a little obsessive about it in the beginning. I have always been adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, and once I discovered there was so much more out there than the Lipton tea I saw my mom drinking when I was growing up, I started trying many different varieties of loose tea. I have discovered I like all kinds of tea. I I veer a lot toward straight teas, especially blacks, but occasionally drink flavored also, especially Earl Grey. I like flavored Matcha lattes too. I’ve completely given up diet cola, which was becoming too much of a habit. I think tea is a lot healthier. When I rate a tea, it’s just my personal taste, so I don’t tend to post on things I don’t care for. Also, I tend to sweeten my tea with natural stevia (a no no for some!) I am a married Registered Nurse, with two kids in college and one in medical school. My husband is not hooked like I am, but he often enjoys a cup with me. I enjoy many other interests, including reading, gardening, and the arts. I’ve taken up hiking in the past year too. Anytime I can include tea in these pursuits, I do! It has become a bit of an obsession for me.
