It’s been raining here for four days straight. Awesome. It actually feels kind of like fall with the temperatures in the high 80s.
So naturally, I think it’s time to switch to something warm to drink.
It started with a tin of tea that is probably about 17 years old. Yes, I used the tea bags. And the tea tasted great. Ditto with some loose tea from 5 years ago. Then I tried a musty box of apple cinnamon tea from last year. Bleh.
Then I set off on a search for some awesome tea to stock up on that wouldn’t lose its flavor within a year.
I’ll be restocking my supply of tea forte and searching for flavor temptations from Stash(?). I have a couple of rogue tea bags from Tapestry, and my sister hooked me up with this awesome blue raspberry tea from The Spice and Tea Exchange, a Portland company, that I will be exploring.
But for now, I’m visiting the Republic of Tea and their tea assortment. Which by far, Blueberry sage is my favorite. I also ordered lemon chiffon (which tastes like cake batter) and Vanilla almond (which tastes like an almond cookie) and their Mango Ceylon which wasn’t as flavorful as the others. They did tempt me with a free Christmas tea bag but it wasn’t anything over the top special like the others. But they do have some Christmas variety packs that are on my list.
I see tea hoarding in my future:D
Until next time.
