i am shamefully behind in my reviews!
a few days ago i came in from the rain, clattering the mail box lid as it was nearly too late. what’s this? something puffy! a puffy envelope in december? always exciting! i didn’t recognize the writing. a mystery envelope! i decided a shake was in order…. something shifted from side to side. i sniffed…. tea! it had to be tea!!
but who from? and which one?
Sil! you sly tea ninja!! i have been wanting to try this blend for ages…. you even remembered that i frequently mess up the first steep (she sent enough for 2 cups).
i smelled rhubarb, cherry, strawberry…. tea, crust….. and the tasty mucky stuff that all that all those elements create together when they puddle. the kettle boiled, the water was ready…. it was going to good! it smelled amazing! i tasted FLAT.
now i know that was me. i was sure of it. sil, if you have been wondering why i haven’t reviewed sooner…a) i was behind, b) i was grumbling.
tonight i got over it….. i cheated…. i added honey. there we go! perfect! wunderbar!
sil, thank you so much…. happy christmas…… xo
