Today is cold, very cold. In the past, this would not be an issue but a side effect of losing 55 pounds is you tend to feel the cold weather just a little bit more. I tend to forget that so when I ventured out this afternoon with no gloves, no hat, and my fall coat I froze the whole way to the post office. That would have been fine if it had not been for that fact that when I gave them the parcel pick up card they told me they didn’t have my package and I would need to come back Monday. So back home I went, empty-handed and cold but excited to try the many teas I have received from many wonderful Steepsterites (Steepsters?).
Unfortunately, my tea tasting has not been fully successful, as you may have already read. Though some were great, others that I were so excited about turned out to be huge disappointments. So after the let down of Toasted Marshmallow and the horrid experience with Ice Cream Cake, I decided on this cold evening I would make myself comfort and turn to some favorites to make me happy.
So, while it snows outside, I have cozied up in bed, decked out in my Roots sweatpants and sweatshirt. Supernatural playing on my Netflix. Bag of baby carrots to snack on. And a timolino full of Sugar and Spice to sip.
This tea always hits the spot. I know many were not fans but to me this smells and taste just like a delicious spice cake. Just the right touch of cinnamon and cloves to compliment the sweetness of the apples and carrots. It never fails to be warming when the temperature outside may not be so kind. Definitely glad to have stocked up on this one.
