The law of inverted thermostats is in full swing. It is about 105 degrees as of this typing, but I am ensconced in scarf, sweater and with hot tea at my elbow, as the temps inside have been plunged into deepest winter.
Brrr.
I turn into a nomad, staggering outside to warm myself, then limping back in to freeze once more.
This, which is hot water with pleasant spices in it, is an excellent shield against the cold.

You poor thing with that subzero air-conditioning temperature thing. Almost, almost worse than the killer heat and humidity.

Goodness but I have a lot of this. Its best at a lighter steep time. It allows an almost perfume-y quality of the blueberries to come out, but if I steep it any longer than about 4 minutes it turns bitter.
A delicate hand needed, then!

Tea of my working morning, as paired with some lavender shortbreads.
I cannot wait to see the bottom of this tin! Not yet, but soon.

Backlogged from the weekend.
I’m really trying to get myself back into the habit of drinking evening teas. I don’t really know why I stopped, but I’ve not been drinking the herbal and non-caff blends that I used to.
So I had a cup of this the other night, and was reminded just how generally pleasant it is. And considering honey and vanilla are two of my very favorite flavors ever for anything, it was sort of a given that I would like this one.

Backlogged from the weekend.
So yesterday was hot as well, and I fortified myself in my house with the air conditioning, a Netflix marathon of Blacklist and casting on a new knitting project. And a mug of this!
Ahh. This is one of my favorite blends, full stop. Its so light, crisp and refreshing, and I particularly love it when its a billion degrees. Its a lush treat, fruity and light and just good.
Nom.

Backlogged from this weekend.
The tin of this is so fun- it looks like a book, and as both a tea lover and a bibliophile I was bound to love it. The trouble is that this tea barely registers. I expected a stronger mint, but I think its a mint and chamomile blend, and not a particularly special one at that.
That’s too bad. I’m always on the hunt for a good mint tea, but this is not destined to be repeated.

Its going to be 109 again today. Uggh! Its no fair. When they start putting out pumpkins in the stores then it should be time for colder weather.
Bleh.
But that means I will drink some more of my fruiter blends.
This was very juicy today, which I enjoyed a great deal.

109!!!!! We are finally getting a break, and I thought it was bad enough at 95.

My first cup of tea of the workday- and its doing its job, which is to add caffeine to my system.
This is a magical tin, deeper than it appears. I cannot yet see the bottom, which is too bad. Its not an offensive tea by any means, but I would be looking forward to having another sipdown!

Its been the sort of morning where I staggered out of bed, brewed this tea, sat down to drink it and then thought, “wait, what blend is this?” Friends I am tired.
This, however, was a good choice for my morning blend. It is solid, strong without being harsh, and was a good pick me up for the morning.

A cup of the afternoon, well needed, but a little disappointing.
I don’t get a lot of “tea” out of this, mostly warm water with spices. Very nice spices, but I feel a solid grounding with a tea blend would be welcome.

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.
