Since the last time I logged into Steepster, we welcomed Leif into the world!!! (pronounced Layf) It was a surprise cesarian section, so I have been spending a lot of the time in the bed with Leif in my arms. I haven’t been able to make it downstairs to make tea yet. But on several occasions my husband has surprised me with a cup of this, always announcing how long it’s been steeping when he hands it off to me. So now I suspect I’ll always associate this lovely tea with this lovely period of my life. :)

Enjoy e-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e m-i-n-u-t-e while he’s cuddly! You’ll blink twice and his voice will have changed and he’s swiping his dad’s razor. Blessings on your family!

Leif! That’s a very scandinavian name, that! Your heritage, spill. ;)

Thanks so much, everyone!! @_Mogana_ doing a lot better than I thought I would be at this point! @Angrboda: Yes it is!! Half of my husband’s family comes from Norway, so the name is in recognition of that part of Leif’s heritage. :)

ashmanra

Awwwww! You made me cry! Enjoy him always. And what a nice husband to bring you tea! I have four and they are not so little anymore, but the two youngest are my most enthusiastic tea companions. (Ok, well, one of them is in it for the cookies!)

Bio

a tea drinking librarian
& a reading, yoga practicing, mommy

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

tea rating guide
(updated 12/2010)

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
