“A happy tea” I mumbled to myself.
“or maybe a comforting tea??”
I stand at my tea cupboard not even seeing the tea inside and not even really familiar with my friends that it holds.
I spot this one and grab it.
Not even sure which category it belongs to, Happy or comforting.
I am not even supposed to be drinking black tea (BLAH!) or hardly any tea at all.
But, I don’t even care at this point.
This year did not open very pleasantly and continues to disappoint as the weeks progress.
Last night, I received more heart wrenching news.
My heart is sad. I need tea.
This one will do wonderfully.
See more in a previous review I wrote on this tea for more on the actual tea.
Just felt the need to reach out to you all and with what better tea to do it with.
Ahhh, feeling more hopeful already…

Profile

Bio

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.
