Resteeped leaves that had been kicked around in a tupperware all night…actually turned out pretty good! Definitely going to try for a third steep. Another night of gross overeating and I need another round of tasty detoxifying teas! STAT!

I love this one so much, though. The blueberries and the white tea…guh. Reminds me of when i was a little kid and we’d go blueberry picking in Michigan and make blueberry pie. For me, it’s a very, very light blueberry pie without the fattiness and sugar of an actual pie. I love it cold (which is good, since my mug holds a good three cups of water and I keep forgetting about it). I just want to crawl into the cup of tea for the rest of ever.

Oh darn! I didn’t order this one. I debated about it forever.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
