96

So I made up a new jug of tea last night to help get me through this 40 C (104 F) day with no A/C. This resulted in a 2 L jug of White Tiger, a 1 L mug of White Tiger, and a travel mug of Long Life Oolong all chilling in my fridge.

I must say, drinking cold tea out of a Second Cup hot coffee travel mug is a bit of a mind trip.

Anyway, the more of this tea I drink, the more I love it. It’s peachy and it’s light, but not too light. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but well worth it for this Southern girl missing her sweet tea.

Wow and I thought it was HOT here!! Glad we have some great teas to keep us cool!

Well, the actual temp is 32C (90F), but the humidex is bumping it up. Luckily it’s only for one day…and I lived a summer in Tennessee with no A/C, this will be cake LOL.

The Purrfect Cup

Yeah our humidity is creeping up there today too. Making 90 feel closer to 100! I have a/c in the office, but I think this thing might die before noon so yeah. I’m hoping our kitties are smart enough to stay in our bedroom unless they need food or their box – only room in the apartment with a/c.

I’m sure they will be…I’m trying to keep our girls happy with ice cubes in their water bowl.

I was raised in Michigan, then Tennessee, now I’m in Toronto. I don’t think I know anything but humid summers!

It’s 91 here in Michigan. I’m hoping it breaks soon. We could have some serious storms tonight.

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!
