Needed a pick-me-up this morning and automatically reached for this tried and true favorite. I will never not love this tea, it’s just so bracing and perfect for a morning when I don’t actually want to get out of bed.

drank Vanilla Decaf by Tealish

Was craving a black tea, but it’s past ten so caffeine is not an option. Vanilla decaf with a shot of sugar free vanilla syrup to the rescue! Perfect and creamy and just what I wanted.

drank Sangria by DAVIDsTEA

This is tasty and the licorice root balances out the massive amount of hibiscus for me. Slightly fruity and very juicy.

That said, I spend a lot of my time in the summer making sangria for my in-laws and while this doesn’t taste like the sangria I make, it does bring to mind the bottled non-alcohols sangria I would buy back home in Tennessee. I could do with more fruit and less hibiscus/licorice, but it won’t be a hardship for me to sip this down.

Another sipdown! This smells like those pomegranate vitamin c cough drops. Not the best association, but not necessarily a bad one either. Just not something I would ever want to drink a cup of XD.

It tastes….like it smells, medicinal hiding under fake fruit flavor. Meh. Glad to see it gone.

edit Bananas. Why am I tasting bananas?

Rewarding myself for the sipdown for bitter hell with one of my favorite teas. I adore this tea and it’s perfect for these last days of summer. Maybe they’ll bring this one back sometime crosses fingers.

Sipdown and thank goodness. I thought my wife’s cup last night was bitter because I accidentally over-leafed, but I was more careful with mine this morning and it’s still crazy bitter. Steeped under boiled for a mere two minutes and I’ve got a bitter brew with maybe a hint of cranberry? Maybe? Blegh. Will finish my cup, but I’m glad to be rid of it.

This is a good peachy black tea I picked up the morning of my little brother’s wedding . Unfortunately, that means it a few years old now. But still going strong, the ratio of juicy peach to decent black tea just perfect, neither lost to the other.

For a cheap tea in a thin plastic container bought years ago, this is damn tasty.

drank Apple Strudel by DAVIDsTEA

I’ve been going through a fair number of sipdowns, so I decided to reward myself with my new favorite tea. When my wife found out this tea was 50% off, they insisted on buying me 150 g worth. :D Best wife!

Still yummy and apple-cider-juicy and perfect.

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.
