Dear Gussie, what a week. I feel like something the cat dragged in. However, Lord willing, I have a lovely unscheduled weekend of “not much” ahead of me.

So in keeping with the no-thought, just-rest-and-be-comfy theme, this was perfect with my break and bake sugar cookies for dessert. The hibiscus gives it the tang of fresh blueberries without the typical nasty h-tartness.

Hubby and I were reminiscing about college days … remember when Red Zinger and Lemon Zinger were about all there was in the Celestial Seasonings lineup? (And back then, I drank them with no qualms about the hibiscus overkill.)

I think it’s why I like hibiscus perfectly fine! When I was first on steepster and everyone was complaining about hating hibiscus in my mind I was saying “But it tastes like COLLEGE!” :)

The reason I care for it much, much less these days is that it masks the other good stuff.

What a flashback. I drank SO MUCH Celestial Seasonings (and Stash) in university! Yes, hibiscus, which I no longer care for, totally tastes like libraries and quads and term papers and cement stairwells. Thanks for that.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
