[Backlog from yesterday]
My sister popped by yesterday right as I was brewing up a pot of this! Which is perfect, because I haven’t seen her in ages (silly school getting in the way!), and I wanted to introduce her to (good) tea so she can have a new obsession (and so we can have tea parties Yay!)
As soon as I poured her a cup.. “Oooooh my god! What is this?!? This smells so good! Oh it tastes soo good!”(typically, she drinks bagged Red Rose tea)…I respond with a cool, “well, it’s Mulberry Magic of course. It’s very good for you too – supposedly lowers blood sugar and curbs cravings” (all very big selling features for her as she’s very health conscious).
I introduced her to my entire tea cupboard (she’s a little worried.. but at least my 3 other orders aren’t here yet so it doesn’t look SO bad). I sent her home with a few samples of Mulberry Magic, a creamed earl grey, and Read My Lips to try (complete with steeping times and I made sure all were boiling water samples for ease of introduction).
My fingers are crossed that I have converted my sister into an avid (good) tea drinker!
Ohh shoot – I got wrapped up in writing this and forgot about my milk oolong x.x
Oh well – raise a cup to the resilience of good tea! =)
