about 2 weeks ago, when we were staying with my parents while trying to find the source of the icky smell in our house, i tried a tea sample mom had in her tea stash. i fell in love. it was seriously the best cup of tea i'd ever drank. ever. i checked out the company's website since it was printed on the package. then i did a little online shopping to see where else it was for sale and whether i could find a better deal. well, i found the exact tea that i had so totally enjoyed on ebay for a good price. so i let the hubby know and then left it up to him to decide if he'd buy me some or not. (he has me completely spoiled, btw!) yes, T placed his bid and got it for me. i had shown him an auction of one lovely little box of 18 tea bags. when it arrived today, i discovered that he bought me 3 boxes! (i'm NOT complaining!) rather, i'm feeling quite thoroughly pampered. there's only one problem. i had a cup this evening. after 8:30. i should mention that this is a black tea and is evidently quite fully caffeinated. now, i already know better than to drink caffeinated soft drinks in the evening. i guess that same rule will have to apply to my yummy new tea as well! on the bright side, it will be good to wake me up in the morning though! (and i'm gonna need it tomorrow! ha!)
so if you're into tea and would like to try a delicious cup of organic black tea, i highly HIGHLY recommend NUMI organic tea. the flavor i like is called "morning rise" and is a blend of 4 black teas. hmmm. i probably should have taken a hint from the name that it would wake me up instead of help me wind down, but it was so yummy i just had to have a cup! i suppose i should have tried the sample of "indian night" (a decaf black tea with vanilla) instead. ah well. live and learn!
and yes, i do take my tea with milk and sugar (or honey). just one more thing you didn't really want to know about me that you do now! tee hee!
