Ah, Monday. I forgot to turn on my alarm and slept an hour and a half longer than I should have. This meant my daughter also overslept and missed the bus. By the time lunches were packed, kids were finally at school and I drove my husband to work (we only have one car and I need to do the weekly shopping today) I was feeling rather frazzled.

Rather then head straight to the grocery store I decided to come home to make a cup of tea and get myself properly ready for the day (hair, make-up, something other than sweatpants…). This turned out to be a good decision for a few reasons. First, I desperately wanted tea and a moment of quiet. Second, I looked like I just rolled out of bed which is not an appealing look for me. In fact it’s, um, scary. Third, I noticed that my daughter forgot her lunch, so now I can run it up to her before I go shopping.

The high point of my day so far is this tea. It’s hearty and full of malt and bread notes. I added sugar and cream, and I’ve been happily sipping on it while getting ready for Round 2 of my day.

Hope your Monday is going better than mine. Whether it is or isn’t I hope you have really good tea to drink today.

Sigh. I need more tea… and maybe a nap and a Do Over button. I doubt the last two will happen, so I’ll be extra thankful for the tea!

Cheri

Me, too, Veronica. It has not been a good Monday so far.

Tea obsessed since 2010.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
