Townshend’s Tea Company’s № 54 Alberta Street Chai

Yes, I can happily claim that the reason I haven’t posted in quite a while is because I’ve been hard at work on Manly Hero 2. And while I sit at my computer editing and writing, mother nature is working on an edit of her own. The green leaves she started with are being rewritten as yellow, orange, and red. The air has changed from warm and heavy to crisp and sharp. And thus, out go the iced teas and back in with the hot teas. Preferrably with some kind of milk. Enter Townshend’s Tea Company’s № 54 Alberta Street Chai.

“TEA” – Bissinger’s Apricot Green Tea Gummy Pandas

It’s tooooo hot for tea. So I’ve been brewing tea after dark, despite how turning the stove on heats up our airconditionless house, and letting it chill in the fridge over night. But, I also found a way to sneak more tea into my hot summer days. These gummy pandas are courtesy of my sister, a late birthday gift.

Tea – Herbescent’s Organic Spiced Mango Green Tea

Okay, I’ve been feeling a bit perma-sleepy lately, so green tea was quickly added to my list of must have writing supplies.  And this lovely bag of tea was added to my collection when I took myself out shopping for my birthday a few days ago. Just look at those gorgeous tea leaves. I love loose leaf tea. In fact I can’t believe it took me this long to post a review about a loose leaf tea.

Tea – Eco Teas’ Holy Mate!

Confession, I love elephants. So I may have been swayed by the picture of the dancing Ganesha on this box when I purchased it. Okay, I was swayed by the elephant. You may also notice a theme with the calm energy. My last tea was stress relieving and rejuvenating. Yes, I’m busy and am trying to drink my way to calm. 😉

This tea tastes strongly of peppermint. With a hint of Continue reading

Tea – Organic India’s Tulsi Chai Masala

I purchased this box of tea at the beginning of what I knew would be an extremely busy week. I had a lot of things to accomplish and I also had a lot of writing to do and wanted to be able to turn off the day and tune into the story. It says stress relieving right on the front so it sounded perfect. 🙂

The flavor is good. Very mild. Which is surprising because the first aromas Continue reading
