Yesterday when I made some of this tea iced to take to the Managers meeting, I had two young lads race up the the counter and ask for a sip. I made too much for my travel mug and rather than put just a little amount into the fridge. I poured the last little bit over and ice cube (one for each lad)

I held my breath…

Lad 1 – “Oh My GOD Erin!! THERE IS CINNAMON IN THIS!”

Lad 2 – “Erin, I know this is from your stuff, an-an’ I know e’pensive, but can we have this for Beach day tomorrow?”

And that is what we did today, Lad 2 helped me set this one up for a sun-steeped tea today, and it turned out really well! Rooibos sun-steeps so well and does not over steep (it would seem)… Not only that, but all 16 kids that showed up tried this tea, of the 16 over half prefer this tea over the “Bear Trap” we made and 2 requested this tea for Christmas Camp!

Verbatum: We could steep this and add hot-chocolate powder!! (Wow, I am creating evil tea genius’!!

Preparation

Awww, lads. I love this tea steeped in coconut milk as a chai latté :))

Sadly that would be tough to do for these kids, because we have no way of effectively heating the coconut milk at my site (no stove, no hot plate)

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
