Oh friends, I recently blundered, and blundered badly. I went on a week long trip with no tea!
I went to NYC to visit my brother, and I assumed my hotel would have at least something. Well, it did, depressing grey packets just labeled “tea”, and with the schedule I didn’t even have time to visit any tea shops in NYC (that will be remedied next time I go!).
I hereby make a solemn vow- I will never travel without an emergency reserve of tea again.
I am so happy to be reunited with my tea stash.

Welcome home! There is nothing quite like that first post-travel cuppa out of your own cup with your own water.

Last week it was almost summer weather, but we’ve had a cold snap in the last few days, and I could not be happier.
I’ve pulled out this to sip down, as it feels more like a “cold weather” tea to me, so it feels right.
Ah, to be snuggled with a cup of tea. My happiest of happy places.

gmathis

Sounds like we’ve swapped weather patterns. We’ve gone from cold/stormy/rainy to BAM! Heat! This week, I’m grabbing anything that will ice down in my office, whose HVAC thermostat is set to “Russian roulette.” This week, it’s been a sauna.

It’s been beautiful where I live, the perfect weather. Its been clear, the weather has been warm but not hot, and cool enough to be comfortable in a light sweater.
These weeks are brief in my neck of the woods, so I am taking advantage.
Time for a cup of springy tea, to celebrate the weather!

Oh, it’s been a crazy few weeks. I’ve been in a one night only play, I’ve held down my office during the busiest season of the year, my boss has taken a week long vacation immedietly after, and now, his MIL has covid, so what this week will look like yet.
Ooof. Tea to the rescue?
I hope she’s ok, and my boss is ok, and his small child is ok.
Eeeesh.

I admire your fortitude! KPO! (Which, as I understand it, was short for keep plodding on and was how Winston Churchill bucked up his clerical staff in times of trouble.)

Every Lupicia Christmas or New Years tea always has a flavor profile that I think is better for the warmer weather, so I am drinking their New Years Eve tea on Easter.
Nom.
Yesterday it was pouring rain, but today it is bright and clear.
My mom will be coming over for dinner tonight, so I have tidying to do!

And that’s why I’m drinking Carol in the spring!

Ah, this weekend has not been long enough.
I have started my day with the Queen, to be a balm to an overly busy soul.
At work we have a week before a major deadline, and I’m starting tech week for a play I’m in. I’m also editing the script a playwright I’ve worked with before has asked feedback on.
How have I convinced people that I am a responsable adult, and why does that make me so busy? Arrgh.
But the queen is her perfectly balanced, magical and majestic self, and that lets me relax for at least the duration of a cuppa tea.

gmathis

OK, that made me chuckle! That’s because responsible adults are an endangered species, so there’s just that much more for them to do!

Oh its been such a long week, full of so many things! And a lot of those things were highly irritating people.
We are going to go to our tasty happy place, in a warm cup of tea.
Yum. May it power me through the end of this tricky week.

Kittenna

Hope you made it through the rest of the day!

I over steeped this one just a touch today, so it’s got a haunting bitter note.
Why do I feel as if today will be Monday 2.0?
Ugh.

Martin Bednář

Today certainly is Monday 2.0… sorry!

drank Monks Blend by Tea Cozy

Do you ever have one of those nights where you are tired, you are all tucked up comfortably, and you cannot go to sleep? That was me last night, laying there, exhausted, unable to force myself into rest.
Ugh.
Tea to the rescue!
This is a very delicate blend, with vanilla and grenadine in it, which makes for a very soft sort of cup. That fits the mood very well. Sometimes when i am very tired I want a tea to clobber me over the head, but this one suits my desire to be gently lead into the day.

gmathis

Ooh..I haven’t had a Monks Blend in a while. Nor have I used the bottle of grenadine pining away on my additive-and-flavoring shelf. You may have inspired me!

It is a perfect day for Her Majesty, Queen Catherine.
(Uuuuugggghhhh daylight savings time)
This was beautiful on a slow morning. I drank it black, but I must try it with cream and sugar sometimes.
I also had it with some cookies, which was an excellent choice. Maybe a scone next time.
Yuuuum.

ashmanra

Long live the Queen!

Kittenna

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
