Good. Wanted to like it more than I did, but it served well as a plain, uneventful black tea to spend the day with.

Was okay. Picked this up during a trip overseas. I think I prefer Irish Breakfast from other suppliers, though.

Made this the other night. I guess I forgot that I don’t really care for it. My husband drank three cups. I wound up dumping mine and making some mint chocolate instead.

My husband made some of this tonight after dinner. It was so good. Very nice way to unwind after a busy, noisy day.

The children don’t have school today, and it is pouring down rain – so of course they are going bonkers and driving me up the wall with boredom. I just want to write in peace. The house is freezing, and I’ve managed to chug three cups of this stuff in as many hours. I’ve got the water boiling again, and might manage another two before I have to get started on dinner.

Found this on a day trip to Leavenworth, WA. I have chronic migraines – and with them, nausea. I have found that ginger helps with the nausea most of the time, so when I found the tea, I thought, “Hey! Why not try this?” It is way gross by itself, but if I mix in a bit with any other tea I’m making, it’s tolerable.

One of my favorites. I love it. So much flavor. So delicious.

Yummy. Not as good as Golden Monkey. Very good with heavy cream or Irish cream and somethign sweet – honey or sugar.

drank Chamomile by Harney & Sons

I’ve never had chamomile tea, so I thought I’d give this a shot. It was … okay? I sweetened it a bit, and it was better. I was too afraid to alter it too much, but I might be more daring next time I try it.

I love black teas, and there are few black teas I won’t drink. I … didn’t care for this one. It was just bland. Bummer.

I grew up on sweet tea, so I have a habit of sweetening just about every tea I drink. But I make a point to try everything at least once without any dressing. I am partial to blacks, and not too fond of greens (except when I have a cold). I treat my teas like my coffee – cream and sugar! And lots of it! I’m terrible, I know.

I also don’t give great big, in-depth reviews (which is sad, because I like to pretend I’m a writer), so don’t expect great things!

In the real world, I am an artist, freelance. Painting, digital art, graphic design, websites, promotional graphics, illustration. I’m even trying to figure out wire bending. I like to write as well, though I haven’t managed to finish anything (still working on that novel!)

I am a fan of zombies, gaming (video, board, cards, RPG…), reading, travel (but not airplanes), comic books/graphic novels, Disney, steampunk, and fluffy socks.

My husband and I love tea, and are now learning to make our own blends.
