So I have a story to tell. One that’s had me chuckling ALL day! :P
It all started yesterday evening as I puttered around the house in a purging frenzy. So of course I needed some tea. While the tea steeped, I decided to keep busy. Every once in awhile, I like to reorganize my tea cupboards, as I am sure most of us here do… and since we are packing up the house I thought it would be prudent to do so again. Mum decided that she needed to clean out her stack of bagged teas as well so while I was organizing mine, I stacked hers on the other side of the counter. Before I go on, you should know that while I love her to bits, she has a rather low tea tolerance. I don’t mean consumption! more like… she rolls her eyes when I make a cuppa, is convinced that my tea habit is causing my health issues, and most of all, complains about the real estate my habit occupies.
Well, you can imagine my surprise when after organizing my stash in bins, it took up only slightly more space than her stack of boxes! ha!!!
Somehow, over the years, she has accumulated loads of tea! all bagged of course, and most of it isn’t even opened. Yep, it’s been sitting there for eons, as in long before I started my tea hobby. It’s kept in a different cupboard and being higher up, somehow we didn’t notice. No matter, its all good in MY book.
After getting over my gleeful shock, I called her in to demonstrate the negligible difference in our piles. “Oh dear” she said. Oh dear!?
And now, she is torn as to what should be done about it. One one hand, it’s old and likely stale but in the other palm, she doesn’t want to just toss it.
What to do?
well I know one thing… she will NEVER live this down. ever ever ever. Nope. Not gonna happen. ha!
Anyhow, I chose Salada to write this story under because she loves it. Even more than Red Rose, which surprised me as I had always thought she preferred the good ol’ RR. Not that I really have any idea what she’d rate this tea, but on her behalf… I give it an 80.
(my rating would be closer to 75 I think)
does one last victory shimmy
(that said, she has no knowledge as to the size of my work or secret stash. Shhhh!)

ashmanra

Two words. Foot tea.

Indigobloom

lol I take it you don’t like Salada :)

Bonnie

This is soooo great! Only in my world I’d would be the other way around. Why do kids try to parent the parents why thy get old? I think I’m the young one anyway!

Kittenna

Hahahahaha, that is an excellent story!

Ninavampi

Hahaha… I can almost identify with your situation! :)

Indigobloom

Bonnie: lol I dunno but maybe it’s practice for when we have kids of our own?
Kittenna: heehe thx! :P
Ninavampi: I’m still grinning about it! heh heh heh

Funniest tea story I’ve read all week! (I’m also chuckling at the number of us who confess to having a “secret stash”. What addicts we are!)

TheKesser

lol oh gosh. This is so me. I’m not a bagged tea drinker by any means anymore, but I’ll admit it, I have some loose leaf tea that I’ve had for years stored in my cupboard and I have the hardest time throwing it away. I’ve tried some of it since and it definitely doesn’t taste the way it should… but something about throwing it out makes me sad… and I’ll admit it here for the first time… I have a secret stash also. I’ve got extra tins of tea hidden in my bedroom closet. I have a few teas that I have stockpiled and that’s where I hid the extras. :)

Missy

lol that is awesome. :D

Geoffrey Norman

LIKE”-ed for the italicized “victory shimmy”.

Indigobloom

Gmathis: our secrets are safe here!!
TheKesser: yup. Funny thing to, I threw out some Bengal Spice tea bags because they were super old and had lost the flavour I loved… but somehow the box ended up in Mums pile again?!
Missy: I thought so to!
Geoffrey Normal: I shimmy all the time, not very well mind you :P

Backlogging from the weekend. The hotel had this to offer when I asked for tea with breakfast. Now my wonderful grandmother swears by this tea. I swear not to drink it again unless I have no other choice. All the milk and all the sugar could not make me finish a cup of this. Very plain and boring to my taste.

Cofftea

The green is very good.

gmathis

My mother-in-law likes the green also.

I drank this as a child (8-12 years old) at camp and I think it assisted in a lifelong “caffeine” or perhaps “theine” is a better word. However it was bad tea! I have not had since the early 90’s. Worse than Lipton. Great little proverbs on the tea tags however.
