February Sipdown Prompt – a tea bought in-store


I didn’t realize this was so close to a sipdown. Most of it has been breakfast tea for Ashman on work days. It is similar to the Gingerbread Festival that we have on hand from Harney and Sons and I tried to decide how they differed. I realized that they differ exactly as the two foods do. Warm bread pudding is rich and sweet and you are really aware of the lemon and vanilla flavors. It seems like a sweet dessert by light in comparison to the Gingerbread Festival, which is full of rich, dark molasses notes. Both are great.

And full disclosure, this wasn’t bought in-store by me, but rather was a special request I made to Supperanna when she was going to be shopping at The Spice and Tea Exchange near Disney. I don’t think there is a tea in the house that I bought in the actual tea shop that sells it, so my choice would have needed to be more of a grocery store blend.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
