I started off my day with this after a night of very little sleep. I desperately needed a pick me up as today was the Pride parade. It wouldn’t do for me to be utterly exhausted! It was just what I needed, I iced it with my new plastic ice cubes and enjoyed it on the ride into town.

I made this one for our 5 hour drive to Etobicoke on Saturday morning. I hadn’t thought to try it iced but that is a good idea. Maybe before ball this afternoon.

Yikes. Well, I hope you had fun in our neck of the woods and enjoyed your trip to our local DT! We love the shop in Sherway Gardens, the girls are always so nice!

We did enjoy our trip. But the mall was a zoo. The store was so packed there was barely time to get my mug refilled. But I don’t mind that when you see 4 people working hard to keep everyone happy. They were very nice to us. The driving however was crazy. I needed to tea to calm down after the time on the 401 and 427. My hand hurt from gripping the steering wheel so tight. LOL

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.
