So the most exciting thing I can think of to do, is light candles and have a cup of hot tea.
It is actually not bad. I really don't care for strong tasting herbal teas usually, but this one is light with just a hint of ginger. I like one other green tea, and it is Tazo's Zen. It has a little lemongrass and spearmint in it. Oh... and I do like Jasmine, when I am in a certain mood. Now when it comes to black tea, I do like it strong. And for all the teas I have in my tea cupboard the one I am out of my favorite tea, is Tetley. I do have some of the decaf left. But it is just not strong enough.
So in honor of National Tea Month...I have decided to clean out my tea cupboard and show you all my teas. Ridiculous really. Last year I shared my tea pot obsession. So this year I thought I would come forth with my tea collection.
Notice on the right hand side are what I call real teas. Then on the left a collection of herbal schmerbals...
Ha...I couldn't even fit all the boxes in the shot. So I just put out one bag from each Stash Tea I have (peach, chamomile, green chai) a few more Tazo's(Passion,Wild Sweet Orange...yuk by the way) two from Good Earth (English Breakfast, Chai) Than after I took the picture I found two more tea's Celestial Gingerbread Spice, another big yuk, and one very special tea from a teashop in Paris, that was located on the street we were stayed at( rue du Cherche Midi) The English teas are definitely my favorite. I had discovered Lady Grey in an English B&B and have since never been without it. My son in law brought me a Blend #42 Earl Grey from Harrods when he was there. I purchased an Afternoon Earl Grey from a tea shop called Whittards when I visited London that is just lovely.
So there you go, my tea obsession...now I need to go pitch some of these teas, and have a clean organized cupboard. The Echinacen, Scottish Nog, and Gingerbread are definitely going!
What do you do on a cold winter's night???
