It’s cold and windy and in general a yucky day. How dare the sun shine! I have a head ache and don’t even want to get out of bed. Actually the cat is holding me hostage by laying across my legs. I can’t get out because you know I don’t want to bother the cat when she is purring so loudly :-P I had a bit of Warming Crimson Berry which I enjoy but not really enough for a cup. So I added some Strawberry Herbal. A little stevia to fight the hibiscus. A nice warming cup with a bright chili after taste. It’s kind of cleaning out my sinuses which I hadn’t even noticed were clogged up. I hope this isn’t the beginning of a sinus infection. It’s the kind of tea that I need to have eat with or the chili can upset my stomach. After forcing the cat off my legs, I made the tea and now she is on my lap and shows no signs of moving. Help, I may be trapped the rest of the day :D I lowered the rating on this a little. It does’t seem as good as I remember it or maybe it’s just that I feel crummy.

Flavors: Berries, Peppercorn

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 43 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight ( I have now lost 40 lbs and I’m looking good in my skinny jeans, IMHO) I am now walking about 4.5 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 33years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
