My order finally arrived….This one tastes just like a spearmint snowball…

Spearmint snowball. I love it! I’m glad you are enjoying it.

That reminds me of the best compliment I think I’ve ever gotten on one of our blends. It was in our brick and mortar store. There was a young lady who had clearly been dragged into the shop by her friends as she kept loudly proclaiming that she HATED tea.

Well, you can’t say that around me; it’s like a personal challenge. So, determined to find something she would like, I made her a hot mug of our Sheri’s Blend (African rooibos with apricot, cinnamon and marigolds—My wife Sheri’s favorite of the blends we create). This young woman made a face then finally agreed to try it. She took the tiniest little sip, stopped dead in her tracks on the way to pulling a terrible face, took another, more generous sip, then looked up at me and exclaimed, “This tastes just like Christmas!”

Just a few months ago the only tea I drank was hot lipton tea at work, an occasional mint tea, and sweet iced tea.. Then my daughter got me some loose leaf teas for Christmas and then, my tea addiction began…..

And what better way to get lots of dessert flavors w/o the calories?

I prefer my tea with a tinge of sugar. Is that cheating? But to me , the combination of sugar and tea is like salt and cooking- both bring out the natural flavors.

My tea drinking has evolved into a set routine: a breakfast blend in the AM, some flavored blacks during the day, late afternoon or evening flavored green/white, herbal (usually spicy, chai inspired) at night.

Not into unflavored greens/whites yet. Just started appreciating unflavored blacks and am thinking that smoky teas may become my favorite…
When I am not drinking tea, I am working as an engineer, reading, watching some of the better TV shows (like Damages and Breaking Bad), practicing my yoga, cooking, gardening, and spoiling my two miniature poodles (Coco and Timmy)…
