So yesterday was my birthday, and let’s just say that the majority of liquids consumed were not tea (though I was drinking wine from a tea cup for a good while yesterday). Cue this morning with utter dehydration, headaches, and exhaustion. My first thought? “YAY! Now I have a valid reason to try that hangover tea from brandy3392 (thank you, by the way)”

It is very tasty, which I need in a herbal “medicinal” tea. If it tastes like medicine, I won’t drink it, no matter the benefits. But this is very good, and it is helping with some of the hangover.

That all being said, I don’t think I’ll be replacing my Detox from DavidsTea with it any time soon, but I’m glad I made a pot of it this morning and that I’ve gotten to try it. Thanks again, brandy3392!

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.
