drank Cream by Adagio Teas
1768 tasting notes

…at least I THINK that’s what I’m drinking. My work tea storage leaves a lot to be desired, and these unidentified bags were squooshed down in the bottom of the tin in a zip-lock baggie. Hey, it’s warm, and a little sweet—-any port in a storm; literally. Raining kittens and cold and damp and just above freezing.

Brewed a big batch in my Brown Betty teapot this morning; took longer to drink than the tea candle in my warmer stand, but still reheated nicely in the microwave without getting too strong or bitter. Good for a cloudy grungy day.

drank Peppermint by Celestial Seasonings

Taking medicinally for phlegm-digestion.

Saying you’re congested or have an upset stomach would have sufficed…

Hee, the word phlegm always makes me think of Calvin & Hobbes. And even though it means something gross, there’s something that I like about that sly silent g.

Sorry…that was just the only accurate way to describe the symptoms :o)

Very nice for a bagged version.

drank Decaf Darjeeling by Harney & Sons

Has a beautiful orangey-gold color that looks really, really nice in Grandma’s rosebud teacups. Makes me feel quite elegant. It hasn’t lost its tang in the decaf process and steeps well more than once.

drank Roasted Barley Tea by Unknown

Very, VERY different—you definitely get the grain taste. Picked up some experimentally a couple summers ago and discovered I liked it iced better than hot. Supposed to have lots of health benefits, though I can’t remember any at the moment.

drank Decaffeinated Black Tea by Tetley

Grabbed it because I desperately needed decaf—just survived a ride to and from grandmother’s house with teenage driver at the wheel and my neck is in knots. Thinking I need something even de-caffer. Oh, well, it’s brewed already.

drank Pyramid Teabags by PG Tips

Something old, comfortable, and familiar to wake up to. Wouldn’t you know it, the one morning I could sleep in I ended up with a wicked case of insomnia…counting on good ol’ PG to fortify me for the day ahead. Happy Thanksgiving: may you run out of fingers and toes to count your blessings on.

Bio

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.
