So over Thanksgiving, my sister in law got sick with a wimp of a cold. Nothing that bad, really, just some sneezing and sleepiness. Well, then my MiL and FiL got it. My MiL visited my wife on Thursday and by Saturday, she was stuck in bed with a doozy of a cold. Sunday I woke up to a sore throat and wheezing in my chest whenever I lay down (and no OHIP until November 14th). So…thanks, SiL.

Yesterday I made cup of this to go for my wife, and then resteeped the leaves in a tea-for-one for myself. It did not resteep well, sadly. Still, it helps both of us enough that I’m planning to buy a tin on the next paycheck. It’s going to be a long winter.

Do they still have it at he store you go to? I know the ones in my area don’t have it and it was discontinued. However they are bringing it back, either next week or Nov 1st with the winter teas. Hope you feel better soon.

I don’t know if they do or not, I’ll have to check. Sadness if they don’t, though there are enough cold teas out there that I’ll survive somehow. But they are for sure bringing it back? So excited for the winter teas, need to stock up on the fall ones!

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.
