After chatting with Julie last week, I decided it was time for me to again share my love of tea, so I'm doing a repost today. The one thing I remember most about this post was that I actually rendered Ruthy speechless. Can you imagine that? So here we go again.
Hello. My name is Mindy, and I am a tea junkie.
It all started a few years ago, on a cruise, when I sampled some passion fruit and jasmine white tea. From there, I branched out to Earl and Lady Grey, black tea, green tea.... Then my SIL started push--er, distributing the good stuff.
Now, I buy my tea by the half-kilo. Currently, I have at least four different varieties on hand.
In the beginning, I had the simple ball tea strainer. Then I moved up to what I call my tea gnome. I love it's fine mesh and the fact that I don't have any leaves drifting through my tea. But that wasn't enough. I have to have my tea even when I travel. That's what the mesh spoon is for.
Sometimes, when I feel like living on the wild side, I use my three-piece tea cup. Its holes are large, so I always have tea leaves in my drink. But it's fun to change things up once in a while.
And then, there's my tea tin. This is how I travel with my tea. So far, I haven't been stopped.
Just look at this Cream Earl Green. So beautiful. And so good for you.
Loads of antioxidants.
What's your beverage of choice? Your splurge? The one you've just gotta have? And how far will you go to make sure you have it?
Since this original post, I've increased the varieties I have on hand. I mean, sometimes a girl just needs a Buckingham Palace Garden Party in a cup or some good ol' Texas Iced Tea Blend.
But you know what they say, it's all good.
