Today, I am not feeling well. Today, will be a honeybush day. I started my day off with Cinnamon Roll Honeybush. It smells just like a cinnamon roll! I don’t know how Frank does it, but all of his HB blends are just fantastic. A six minute brew yielded a mild, tasty cuppa.

drank Spiced Plum by Harney & Sons

Part of my saturday sampler day. Ground up cinnamon and plum. Time to break put the Chatsford infuser basket. Tart, cinnamon. On first sip, I did not think it was very good, but I continued to sip and found it to be tasty and a nice edition to evening tea choices.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 0 sec

Part of saturday sampler day. Very light on the plum and spice and thankfully light on the green tea. This is ok if it were the only thing available, I would drink it.

At first glance of the tea description…rose petals ugh…smoke ugh! But I am pleasantly surprised at the layers of flavor. First, you smell the smokiness, but it is not the over the top smokey, just a slight smoke. Second, you taste a delicate backdrop of black teas and then on the back of your tongue the cream of a rose. I have not added milk or sugar this time.

Preparation
2 min, 15 sec

Smooth. I have missed drinking this…added a bit of sugar crystals in brew basket. Three minute infusion. Yum.

Had to look back at my own notes on this one…but it got a good review when I tried it. Better than any other GM I’ve tried.

I still haven’t tried any of Golden Moon’s offerings yet.

Almost out of this tea. It is fruity with a bit of ginger bite. Great afternoon tea.

drank Pyramid Teabags by PG Tips

I love this tea. Smooth, comforting, takes milk really well. If you have trouble enjoying this tea, try making it with 9 ounces of water instead of 6 and a brew time of 2 minutes. I do make this in a small teapot, which I feel adds depth to the brew. Once I stumbled on this ratio, my love for this tea grew. AND you gotta love the monkey!

Daughter brought this to me over the weekend…a blend of three teas…three is my favorite number. The verdict, it is ok. I only brewed this two minutes and I think that was enough time to being out the three favors. Will I buy it again? No, but it is nice for a surprise:)

I’ve had mixed experiences with this one…loved it at first, then drove myself nuts trying to replicate the love; black and greens have such different personalities, they’re a little finicky together.

I mixed one tsp of this with some spent blood orange black leaves. Perfection in a cup the peppermint shines through beautifully!

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
