I just got back from the September long. I went camping up on Lake Winnipeg outside Gimli in Manitoba. I think this may be the first time I’ve sailed through the border both ways! This trip was balm to my soul. It was so nice to just lay around and chat with friends. One of them, a very dear woman that I see far too infrequently, gifted me with handmade cat toys and tea. She bought several of the Summer Refreshing Teas packs, which have 5 tins of fruit infusions.

I made this one tonight and have been sipping it while playing around on the internet. (I really MISSED having access over the long weekend, but I think it was good for me). This one is a little strange to me. It is sweet. Almost too sweet, but I don’t think it’s that Stevia sweetness.. On the other hand, the hibiscus has a zing to it. I have never liked hibiscus. So for me, this one is a miss, but it is tolerable. I may try it iced and see if I like it better that way.,

So glad you got a break! Sounds heavenly.(The break. The tea doesn’t sound so heavenly.)

There are five teas in the set, so I’ll find at least one that I love! And when I drink them I’ll think of my friend and get double enjoyment from it.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
