The in-laws strike again! And a significant number of my drinks yesterday were decidedly Not Tea (St. Paddy’s)….the wife and I are going on a bit of a Detox binge. This has become my go-to tea, it’s so delicious, I’m happy to sit here and sip it all day.

The beau and I enjoyed green beer last night, and detox this morning as well : )

ps – I intend to re-steep the “leaves” when I get home to see if it really does re-steep well! (in my opinion, that is :D)

Ha! We went by DT while I was still mostly tipsy and got a tin of detox with the pretty green label. I love resteeping the heck out of it, but I also resteep black teas, which is apparently a huge no-no so shrug I am not to be trusted ;)

I also re-steep black teas…I like the way you think! However, I do use way less tea to liquid than directions suggest, and go for a longer steeping, most of the time. I’d rather get more delicious cups than fewer quick cups.

I’m getting a little excited now about this re-steep when I get home, hopefully my leaves weren’t thrown out by the beau as they sometimes are. Although it would only be an excuse to brew another pot of it…

I could drink Detox for days and not tire of it! And I’m with you on the less leaves/longer steep thing. Makes the tea last longer too! I’m in no rush.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
