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.

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.
