Good morning all. I’ve been in shock for the past 24 hours and saddened, yesterday morning a pregnant woman was run over and died right in front of my house. Literally ten feet away from my front door. Though I did not know the young lady (but had seen her around before) it’s just devastating that something like this could happen, and so close to where I live. I am lucky in that I am away at the moment looking after my parents dogs and on Friday my husband stayed with me for the night so we were both here at the time of the incident. If we were home we would have seen either the crash or the aftermath, seen things that no one should have to. My heart goes out to the poor girls family.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

This tea was from the first round of the EU travelling tea box. I like the idea of a fruity, chilli, Rooibos based tea but it would have to be blended well.

In raw form it has a sweet generic fruit scent with some Rooibos thickness, I took a large sniff and ended up pulling away to sneeze so that must be the chilli coming through. My nose feels ticklish now.

My first sip reveals a sweet yet light fruity tea with some Rooibos thickness in the after taste and just a pinch of chilli. Not so much a hot chilli tea as it is flavour, though it does give a very light tingle at times.

It’s pleasant but half way down the cup the spice becomes thicker and the sweet fruit less so. Also it gets rather dry and bitty.

I think it’s a nice try at a chilli blend but it’s nothing out of the ordinary.

My prayers are with you and for the girls family.

my gosh, how sad!

I’m so so sorry to hear about your neighbour. I hope the driver steps forward, giving the family some(eventual) closure :(

It’s just such a shock, it’s not something that I ever imagined would happen on my door step. The driver was caught because he crashed into park railings and completely wrecked his car. He survived but is in critical condition. I’m the last house on street so right on the corner, over the road is a park and the car must have gone straight over. Not heard why yet ie drink/drugs etc. But it could have been me or my husband or anyone of my family…it just rings home how fragile we really are.

How terrible! :-(

TheTeaFairy

This is just terrible…what a tragedy, so sorry.

Terri HarpLady

What an aweful thing! :(

caile

Such a tragedy!

Rosehips

So horrible.

tea-sipper

Oh my gosh, that is terrible!

Indigobloom

I have a few UK based people on my facebook… I just saw someone post an article about this same tragedy. So incredibly sad :(
(Won’t post it here though, as it contains the street on which you live)

KittyLovesTea

If you saw the article then you may have seen my house, the photographs of the car have my house in them in the background. Very sad and unfortunately not the first accident on that road. Her funeral is almost paid for thanks to generous donations.

Indigobloom

Hmmm nope, it’s got pictures of all the flowers people left, with a red bin in the background, and maybe a park behind it.

And this is the last unlogged tea! I’ve been saving this for last, because I knew how bad this was going to be. (I tried this before, see. Once.)

This is a very nice rooibos. There’s this surprising, buttery note both in the nose and in the cup. It mingles quite deliciously with the berryful body of the tea. And then…

…chili!

Seriously, the horror.

This is the first and last chili tea I try. I love spicy food. I love chili. But in a tea? To my palate, it’s an abomination.

Which is a shame, because I’m sure someone who enjoys chili teas might really like this one – hence the (possibly surprisingly) generous grade. It’s not you, Fruity Chili, it’s me.

I’ll see if I can find a new home for it; I vaguely recollect reading ‘I love rooibos and chili teas!’ on someone’s presentation, and I will hunt this person down.

Oh, I definitely hear you re it being an abomination in tea. That’s sort of how I feel when people rave about popcorn tea. we are not supposed to be able to drink popcorn! (then again, the concept of drinking dessert is comparable, although I suppose we’ve been introduced through milkshakes and sweet juices and such, so it doesn’t seem nearly as far-fetched).

Anna

I really want to try a popcorn tea now – if only to see how vile it can be, haha.
