Finally at long last, IT FEELS LIKE FALL! That means I will really enjoy morning tea, and I don’t even have to sneak the thermostat way down. :)
I mixed this the opposite way today because I was feeling a little bruised on the inside – too much thinking does that, you know – and I wanted a black tea that would also be calming or meditative, and florals do that for me. So I went with two teaspoons of Rose Scented and one of Palm Court, but honestly, I think I prefer it the other way round!
The tea and a nice chat with a neighbor while the dogs played and the gentle breeze blew have made things a little lighter. The horrendous humidity is broken for now, and you can actually stand outside for more than ten minutes without needing a shower.
Our second tea party tea today was this blend of two Harney and Sons teas that we have come to love. Two teaspoons of Palm Court, one of Rose Scented, in a 22 oz. teapot. Delicious and sweet!
This is absolutely delicious! There was a bit leftover in the pot from yesterday, so when youngest said she needed a pot so she can brew some Vanilla Comoro I volunteered to drink it up. I wasn’t even planning to reorder Palm Court, but this is making me rethink that decision. She mixed one and a half teaspoons Palm Court with one and a half of Rose Scented. Up to one teaspoon of Boston accidentally was dropped in, and mostly fished back out, but I am sure it contributed something. This is a very satisfying midday cup, sans additions.
I am loving this combination! Palm Court was already an enjoyable tea, but the addition of rose flavor takes it to a new level. I am thankful to JacquelineM for suggesting it. Delicious! This was the second tea of tea party today. We also had Golden Monkey by Harney and Sons, Jasmine both hot and iced by Fujian, and Silky Green, which I already reviewed today! Yes, I am VERY well hydrated!
