From Tea for All Reasons

For all of you Downton Abbey and Earl Grey fans, this is a must! I’ve created this new blend in honor of the irrepressible Dowager Countess. You are aware of a strong presence whenever she enters a room, impeccably dressed, with rows and rows of creamy white pearls. She makes no apologies for her strong sense of tradition, and underneath her sharp, dry wit, there is a sweetness that she tries to keep well hidden. Much like the Dowager, our new Earl Grey blend is “steeped” in tradition, has a strong, tart Pomegranate presence, with an underlying sweetness, and is dressed up with creamy white pearl dragees. Enjoy!

This is another tea from Tea For All Reasons – their Downton Abby Collection. I’m really enjoying these! Now I must start watching the series!

This has that bergamot in an earl grey but not the fragrance of an EG or the stereotypical PUNCH. It has a bit of juicy ‘pom’. The product description says TART – I wouldn’t call it “TART” per say but a neat offering of flavor. I usually only describe teas with hibiscus in them as TART and this doesn’t have it in it – thank GOODNESS!

There are floral notes – but more sweet than bitter or perfumy type florals. There is also a wonderful creaminess in this that is surprising AND much appreciated.

This is a very nice flavor combo – ratios AWESOMELY done – and I give it two thumbs up!


Downton abbey is great. I just started watching myself but there are only 3 seasons so far and only about 8-9 episodes per season so you can burn through pretty quickly. I only started last week and am almost finishing season 2. The first 2 episodes were boring but I told myself to suffer through since I knew it was a good show and just had to give it time.


Good to know! Thanks!!!

I haven’t had this one in a while, and I’m happy to say that I still like it. I hope I never get over being happy because of sparkly things. It’s the little girl inside me.

I have been re-drinking a lot of things lately and not posting reviews, I’m sorry! What usually happens is I go upstairs to make tea and I just have my iPad with me, and I hate typing long things on the iPad. Our house is a bit unusual in that the kitchen, dining room, bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the ground floor, then the great room, offices, laundry, storage and another bathroom are underground. So now I’m at my desk, with my computer, but on a different floor than my kitchen. The next house won’t have stairs, I have vowed.

So anyway, tea, reviews, stairs, iPad, blah blah. A lot has happened in the past week. We adopted a cat: HIs name is Prince Pudding. It was really sort of sweet, we wanted a Ragdoll specifically, and I found one that was listed at the shelter one town over. So we went there, and when we got there he was in one of the “get acquainted” rooms with an older lady and we were SO SAD.

Then she motioned for us to come in, and she was the previous owner! She is going into assisted living and since she took him to the shelter, she has been going back every day to see if he was out for showing and to meet people to help find a good family for him. It was really heart warming. We spent about 45 minutes with her and with him, and it’s just the absolute right fit. You know she loved him a lot if she didn’t just drop him off and leave him. He had been at the shelter since the 2nd but the first day they put him out was the 8th, and we adopted him on the 9th. So there you go!

Awwww! What a nice story :)


Thank you so much, Marizipan, for adopting this cat in need! It’s so sad that her previous owner had to leave her, but it’s very sweet that she kept coming to visit every day. (I have tears in my eyes.) She obviously loves Prince Pudding, and I hope very much that he really fits in with your family.


Well there’s actually a little bit more. We went ahead and adopted him, but we are letting him stay with her for two more weeks so she can have more time to say goodbye before she moves into the assisted living place. It’s also when my daughter will graduate high school and have more time at home, so it feels like a very sweet and loving transition for him, and the prior owner is thrilled.


What a wonderful story. For you guys, the kitty cat, the former owner, your daughter. This is lovely.

Oh, that is so lovely. I have 2 cats and I can’t imagine giving them up for anything – it’s so wonderful that you were able to meet the previous owner, and that you’re able to give Prince Pudding (eeee!) a smooth transition.


Oh he’s sweet! I hope he makes the transistion to his new home easily. As I understand some cats can get a bit stressed by it, causing some irregularities in toilet habits. Perhaps you can send the old lady pictures/postcards now and then, so she can see that her cat is well taken care of?


I love that idea!


I have a cat that I adopted for someone else when her son turned out to be deathly allergic (multiple ER visits and hospital stays in a year). In fact, he’s the cat in my profile picture. Anyway, I send them regular updates and pictures on how he is doing.


Aww I love this! You and your family are awesome for adopting an adult cat from a shelter! This is an adorable story.
