We are in the full swing of Harvest here.
Running constantly the last week or more,and never sure what day it is.
I have been drinking staple teas such as my Earl Grey, but because I am out in the field all day, I have been down to one cup of tea daily.
I feel like those last five words should be in capitol or italics or in bright red.
It has been utterly grueling.
But, today I am home, doing laundry, cleaning and bound and determined to drink tea.
I have this tea from Angrboda and its a odd duck.
The nose of it dry reminds me of some candy I had in my youth.
The most odd thing about this tea, is its color.
My husband walked by and stopped and then sniffed and then asked me with slight fear in his voice “Is…that tea?”
It is sort of a brown-ish purple color.
Now, I only have had figs a few times in my life, but this tea is not coming off overly “figgy” to me.
More fruity.
But, I am rather enjoying it.
Maybe its just because I am actually sitting down in the middle of the day, drinking a cup of tea that I am being rather forgiving.
But, it is a nice fruity afternoon tea.
Thank you for letting me try this tea, Angrboda.

You are welcome to it! I didn’t care for it myself, so I’m glad that it went to a better home. :)

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
