I have had this several times since I first rated it, enough that I ordered again, a larger amount, and am working my way through that at a good clip. Everyone I have shared this with loves it. It is perfectly vanilla, lightly sweet and deliciously creamy.

/non-tea rant on

I had it last night as a comfort-hope-I-can-sleep-soon tea. I have some bronchial thing going on, which my husband also has. Broad brush statement follows: Honestly, why are men such babies when they get sick? Women get sick and still take care of everyone else. Men get sick and they curl up in a corner and moan. I get it – it sucks. We both have the same thing and I’m not happy about having it, either. The aggravating thing about it is that he’ll be better before I am since he got it first and when I’m still sick he won’t ask if he can bring me anything like juice or medicine. He’ll bring it, but I’ll have to ask for it. Sigh. I guess if they did what we did, they’d be women and what would be the point. I just have a leftover grumpy from last night. :)

Anyway, I’m ramping up my rating on this since I evidently enjoy it immensely and I’ve not yet shared it with anyone who didn’t like it.

That’s why women have the babies. We manly men aren’t up to the task.

Nicole

This woman isn’t up to that task, either. :) Just thinking about it gives me the vapors. :)

Not to one-up everyone,but to have the hubby divorce me because “it wasn’t in his belief system” to take care of anyone…was a shocker to me. I cared for him when he had heart surgery. My father took care of my mom for over 40 years! He was a rare kind soul!

Nicole

Wow. That’s a real heel. I know mine isn’t bad – just common – and I wouldn’t trade him. I’m just getting my grump on. :)

Sil

wow Bonnie. Didn’t know a good thing when he had it!

Tea afficianado. I wish I could make a living creating and serving tea parties, but alas, bills prevent that possibility. :) So I make do by catering tea parties for friends and co-workers and drinking tons of tea with my cats on my lap. :)
