Very delicious tisane! I realized why I like it so much – it tastes like the blood orange Italian sodas I adore! I think I am going to hot brew some this weekend, sweeten it lightly with organic cane sugar, cool it, and add it to sparkling mineral water for a healthier-than-store-bought (and less expensive!) refreshment!

Just smiling at the thought of closing your eyes and clicking your heels as you drink this … there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home …


Have you read Wicked by Gregory McGuire? A whole new spin on the Wizard of Oz told through the witch’s POV! I loved it!!!

Also – since I was a teenager I have always had a pair of red shoes in rotation – partially for the ruby slippers reference and partially for David Bowie’s Let’s Dance (put on your red shoes and dance the blues. HUGE Bowie fan here).

I was wearing my red shoes a few months ago and a bunch of high school students were in a clump, and one yelled “Follow the yellow brick road!!!” at me! I yelled back “There’s no place like home!!!” They all cracked up – I win!! :)


I haven’t read any of the Gregory MacGuires yet … I’ve heard reviews at both ends of the spectrum from people whose opinions I respect. Keep telling myself if I can find it at my favorite Goodwill for a buck, I’ll invest, but not till then.

Red shoes are just happy. My favorite pair ever, long retired, were red ankle-length “elf boots.”


pst -gmathis want me to try and mooch it for you? it’s a good read :) son of a witch was good too, still trying to get the lion book


I spied a bottled blood-orange juice from Italy in the greengrocer at Chelsea Market the other day. I might have to purchase some and mix it with some seltzer, now that you’ve given me the idea.

On the red-shoes front, don’t forget dear Elvis Costello’s “The Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes”!


I hope you like it!! :)

And yes – Elvis Costello!! I was also thinking about the fairy tale the Red Shoes, and all of the work inspired by it (including Kate Bush’s album!)

Yep, I have to always have a pair of red shoes :) (but hopefully none of them will make me dance nonstop until I cut my feel off etc etc etc!).

Wow, this tea smells of tart citrus, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. Looking at the teas description, it is blood oranges and not grapefruit, even better! I haven’t had blood orange since Ciao Bella’s Blood Orange Sorbet a few years ago. The tisane brews up the color of a blood orange too. Such a rich deep crimson. Delicious. This tea makes me want to dance!

Thanks JacquelineM for letting me sample some of this tea! Must get more!

Another sample from Meghann!! This one smells so very, very good…

Oh. Oh, my. Oh.

Fruity. Tart. Sweet. Blood orange. Rich. Thick. Magenta. Amazing.

Excuse me, I need to be alone with this for a bit.

Having a box full of new teas from JacquelineM was too much for me… I had to try one out despite the heat, humidity, and the fact that I don’t often drink tea at night (not for any particular reason, just because I don’t get around to it usually). Obviously I had to do one of the herbal teas, so I tried this one because it really smelled great; sweet and fruity, bright and citrusy. I also experimented with my first iced tea; I brewed it at double strength and shook some ice into it.

I probably could have/should have brewed it stronger and longer, but it was still tasty. A tiny dab of honey brought out the flavors a touch more, and it was tart and refreshing. It really does taste like an unsweetened Italian blood orange soda! I look forward to trying this one hot, as well as iced again this summer! Thanks again JacquelineM!

My roommate Shwee found a new bakery in her town called Heavenly Buns which apparently has a sign of an angel mooning the pedestrians. She found this tea and thought that I would enjoy it so she sent me a sachet of this.

I wasn’t sure what it was because I didn’t look it up before hand so I brewed it for four minutes. It smelled divine and it brewed up to be this pretty pale pink! Plain, it didn’t taste like much so I added a little bit of sugar to my cup. Then it started to taste a little bit like grapefruit but not quite. Nice and light and mild.

Then I looked it up after finding the store on the label and discovered that it was a blood orange blend. Wow. I thought it would have been stronger than this but this was a very nice light tea. I have an awesome friend who thinks of me when she sees tea.


The sign for that place sounds hilarious!


I laughed when I read it in the letter. Apparently it has caused quite a stir in her sleepy little town.

had this cup with a vegan burrito at harrison street cafe.
pretty delicious! sweet and fruity and tart. a little too tart for me personally, but i also let it brew too long while i was eating. i bet the second brew of the bag would have been exactly right for my tastes. perfect summer tea. i will be drinking much more of it in the months to come i’m sure.
Meghann M below says that this tea “smells of tart citrus, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice” and she is exactly right.
