sheepishly crawls back in Guh work is kicking my butt, but I finally talked them down to part time, so hopefully I’ll have time for things I actually enjoy now. >.>

This was tasty! I love me some raspberry and while I’m not a huge fan of Earl, I do occasionally enjoy it. They mixed together quite well, I really liked it. However, about halfway through the cup it began wearing on me. I don’t know what it was, but ultimately, this wasn’t the tea for me. Oh well, at least the wife loves it! The raspberry was only slightly there, which is probably why I shied away from it. If the wife wanted to share a pot, this would be an option, which is good because there are only a few we both agree on, but I wouldn’t seek it out for myself.

May I just say how much I love Red Leaf Teas, however? We spent something like $80 (with free shipping) and got 20 teas. The small bags are big enough for both of us to truly try a tea quite a few times and decide if we like it, but not so big that if we don’t like it, we feel guilty for buying. I’m very, very impressed and will definitely order from them again.

I was checking out their website the other day based on your recommendations and I am really looking forward to ordering. They sound great. How long did shipping take to Canada?

A month, but it was very much worth it! You forget it’s coming and then it’s a gift!

Ok. Next month I am ordering and then it is an early Christmas present when it arrives.

woo! I’m loving the “small” size offered, and I love that the larger sizes come with freebies! We are definitely going to make another order eventually to stock up on the ones we liked, but the small packages give us a chance to try before we buy.

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.
