*Joey voice * I’m back, baby!
Alright so I abandoned everything not so long ago, but I’m getting back into what feels like my own life and rediscovering the things I loved. I have new resolve and I’m going to reverse the damage I did to my health/diet over the last few months as well as finally fixing the things I broke a couple of years ago when my anxiety and depression were at their worst. I was doing well for a while but it can be so demoralising when you work so hard and still have a long way to go that I came very close to giving up. So I had a slight relapse, it’s no big deal. I can pick myself up and move on. There is now an end date in sight for my most serious problems and I’m already starting to feel the relief. Tea is a big part of my enjoying and appreciating life (no matter how sad that might sound) and I’m taking it as a big positive that my love of it is returning.
It’s the weirdest thing, I woke up a couple of days ago thinking about this tea, and today I was craving it again so decided to dig it out and brew myself a big ol’ mug. It was totally worth it. Just as good as I remembered, and I’m actually surprised it doesn’t have more notes. In my opinion this is one of Bluebird’s best teas. All of the flavours blend together so well, and it’s so delicate and flavourful at the same time but no one flavour overpowers another. Every time I drink it I’m impressed. For me, the white and green tea blend is delicious and really compliments the flavours. It is the tea I taste most in the sip, which is sometimes not the case with Bluebird teas, and the flavours of jasmine and spearmint are in sort of supporting roles. Afterwards, though, the tea fades and the jasmine remains strong, followed by the spearmint, which lingers the longest.
It’s such a relaxing, delicious cup of tea which never fails to impress me, and definitely a good choice for this afternoon. Okay now I’ve banged on about it for so long I’m going to be late for work.
