Brewing this in my brand new tea-for-one teapot and cup. Funny story: I went looking for teapots because I’m having a fancy tea party in the next couple weeks with two girlfriends and their daughters and we’re going to plan our elaborate vegetable and flower gardens and drink tea and eat little treats (little cucumber sandwiches, little scones, little cakey cookies.) The only “teapot” they had was this two-piece tea-for-one pot, down to $3.99. Well, it’s not what I was looking for, but the price was sure right, so I picked it up and put it in my basket. When I got to the check-out, it rang up at $7.99, so I questioned it. (I HATED being “that girl.” What am I, eighty? I apologized quite a few times to the people behind me and to the check-out boy.) The girl came back with the sign that indicated that I was right and she proceeded to tell the check-out boy how to put it through, and then she said something really awesome. “And then she gets it for free becaues the price was wrong.” Say WHAT?? FREE TEAPOT? Damn, I’m a lucky girl!
So I’m brewing this alarmingly pink, deliciously citrusy tea in my BRAND NEW FREE TEAPOT and enjoying it in the ridiculously large-mouthed rapid-heat-loss cappuccino mug that comes with it.
First of all, I can’t get enough of the colour of this tea. And that fresh orange scent blows my mind. I’m used to the Wild Sweet Orange orange from Tazo. (About as orangey to orange as NeoCitran is lemony to lemon. IE: not.)
The hibiscus is a little zingy (yuck), but the pinkness of the tea is just so excellent that I’m not too concerned.
I want to be drinking this in the sun, under the shade of a well-plant-covered pergola, listening to summer birds like robins chirping while reading my trashy Charlaine Harris novels, watching my daughter play in the mud.
But working in my dining room at my laptop while wearing slippers will have to do…
For now.

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
