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.

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.

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.
