After finding a hunk of boiled egg white in my kettle (from my wife making hard boiled eggs last night and yes, I found this after my two cups of tea this morning), I scrubbed out my kettle and made two cups of my favorite teas to soothe the heebie jeebies. I make my hot teas two mugs at a time because I drink my tea lukewarm like a weirdo XD.

Anyway, this tea is good. Consistently delicious, never had a bad cuppa. The scent alone is cheering me up.

Please excuse any lack of cohesion, I’m so exhausted I’m dizzy >.

Yeah I still don’t like pumpkin chai, but it’s due to personal preference and not any fault of the tea itself.

Still no bed. Nearly a full week of sleeping on a cheap egg carton mattress on the floor. No brains for review. Chai makes less of a zombie. Not enough.




Jeepers. You sound like me a fortnight ago. Kept falling asleep in my studio on the floor with a box as a pillow :)

Ikea to the rescue & now I’ve got a sofa’bed’


Luckily our new mattress should be here on Saturday. Only two more sleeps!

Glad IKEA came through for you! Our bedframe is IKEA…as is most of our home XD

This tea took me by surprise by how good it was, I could taste the marshmallow and the graham cracker without the chocolate overwhelming. All in all, an excellent cuppa.

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

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 five! 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), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) 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 stevia 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.
