Haiku from The Jasmine Pearl. . . . 17

This week has not been my week.  I’ve had some great positives and I’ve tried to hold on to those. . .but for the most part. . it has been a stressful week. . . and it’s only the middle of the week.  I’m worried about what the rest of the week has to offer me. Agh!C’mon happy thoughts! So today, I reached for a tea that I had never had before from a company that I had never experienced before.  I wanted something soothing and invigorating for my soul.  It has been one of those kind of weeks. The […]

Cucumber Mint Tea from Handmade Tea. . . . 11

Handmade Tea is a great option for anyone looking for a monthly subscription tea plan.  Each month you receive a new hand blended tea and once it is gone, that blend is gone.  These blends are hit or miss for me.  I either really like them or have to take a few minutes to experiment with them a bit to get them to my taste. Handmade Tea was started in 2011 by Caleb Brown after he decided he wanted something more exciting when it comes to loose leaf teas.  He has definitely done just that.  Each of his blends are […]

Elderberry Jam from Paper Box Goodies 7

I have tried and loved several different teas from Paper Box Goodies and I think this is one of the last ones I still needed to try.  I was very intrigued by this one. . .A white tea take on chai! ~Breakdown~ Paper Box Goodies is a no nonsense tea store on Etsy.  I love Leslie’s teas.  These are one of the few bagged teas that I will recommend. I’m not a tea snob, just prefer loose leaf tea. Elderberry Jam White:  This white tea is deep and dark, with a fruity, slightly spicy taste. A mix of elderberry, blueberry, cinnamon, […]

Ghost Tea from Yokai Tea 10

With a name like Ghost Tea, I would think this tea would be more of a tea for the Halloween season- pumpkin or apple flavored.  This tea is actually a Bai Mudan White Tea with rose petals and cornflower.  To me, exactly what a ghost tea needs to be.  Light with a silky texture. Ghost Tea from Yokai Tea  ~The Breakdown Who:  Yokai Tea Info:  Ghost Tea– Ghost–a delicate, ethereal white tea, gently perfumed with rose petals and flashes of bright blue cornflower. Contains low levels of caffeine.  Ingredients: Whole leaf Bai Mudan tea*, rose petals*, cornflowers*   ~The Good. . […]

A Delicious Tea that is Keeping Me A Float Right Now. . . Blu Blanc from Blackbird Tea Co. 8

I am not going to lie.  I am exhausted.  This last week has opened my eyes to how much I actually sit in front of the computer working on my various projects.  I didn’t realize that I was missing shared time with Jason or the rest of my family.  Between all the different projects I’m involved with, I have decided that I need to stick with a blogging planner. And stay with it.  I tried it and really liked using it, but like I normally do, I started not sticking to what I had on paper and reverting back to my […]
