Labor-intensive curriculum writing project done. Microwave, stand, and everything on it swabbed down. Living room vacuumed. Fresh sheets on the bed. A celebration is in order.

And, boys-a-dear, this is the tea to celebrate with! Upon opening and contemplating the bonanza of dried strawberries, chocolate chips, and rose petals in this CuppaGeek blend (dare I say masterpiece?), I couldn’t decide whether to steep some or use it for potpourri. The scent of real chocolate and real fruit (not syrupy candy flavoring) made me giddy.

The actual cup did not disappoint. I expected it to be a little oily due to the chocolate, but there’s just a little opacity. The strawberry is real, the chocolate (to me, anyway) leans a little to the dark side, and the rose petals just add a lovely element of fancy-pants.

I anticipate it to make a perfectly acceptable second steep, which is going to be needed very soon. This cup’s gone!

Thank you. Few moments in life are more satisfying than attaching those finished files and hitting SEND!
