Sipdown! 29/365

Ahahahaha, sounds like this was originally from Crowkettle, and came to me via Sil, so thanks to you both! It’s marked “Floral Death”, which I think is hilarious. (I recall being apprehensive when I saw it in my bag the first time, but my flavour preferences have shifted a bit since then.) The tea contained rose petals, which worried me, but to my absolute delight, it appears to be much more heavily lavender/jasmine/not rose (I don’t like rose). So this one-cup sample was very much enjoyed by me, as lavender teas seem to have a calming effect on me, and I could use some calming. Haha. The white base was excellent here, with the florals; I would just prefer the tea to be even more heavy on the lavender.

Sil

Hahahahaha I remember that :)

Kittenna

Yeah. Definitely not your cup of tea, haha.

ashmanra

Ha! I love this tea, but yeh, if you are not into floral, you are going to HATE this one. I mix it with plain white for a friend who is just meh about floral.

CrowKettle

Wow! What a flashback :) This tea has gotten around and is doing surprisingly well considering when I bought it (four years ago now!?).

I agree on the lavender.

Kittenna

It was a treat! :D

“Floral Death” as dubbed by crowkettle who put some nice warnings on a few fun teas she sent my way. I’m going to have to agree with her on this one. I think there are a few people i know who would love this tea but it is not for me. That being said, evaluating this tea, ignoring that i am NOT a floral fan, it’s not bad. It’s actually got a nice medley here of florals and the base tea is quite nice. Thanks for the share crowkettle! tomorrow we sip on blergamot!

CrowKettle

Glad you could picked up base. This one has suffered from neglect in my cupboard, and I’m pretty sure the flowers have tripled in power out of spite.

I need a “Calgon Take Me Away” tea tonight. My mind is spinning and I need something soothing and indulgent before I go to bed.

This morning when I came in from tending the chickens bright and early, I had a text that my nephew was in the hospital. He was on a first date with a girl and they were in a wreck last night and it was pretty bad. All day, news trickled through and changed. It was hard to get information, even for his parents who were not notified until five hours after the wreck, partly because he was thrown from the car and they couldn’t find him at first.

It looks like he will be fine, but I have been aching for what my brother and his wife have been through today, and the fear they must have been assaulted by when the police woke them at 2:30 am as well as hating the pain he must be in.

You think you have a bad first date story? How about “my car was totaled and I was in surgery for eight hours and he couldn’t breathe on his own.” The driver that clipped the car was at fault.

So here we are. This tea is probably going to be just for me because it is too floral for my best friend and while youngest likes it all right she is more of a Lapsang and puerh fan. Those are pretty much the opposite of this.

So this tea has everything soothing in it…lavender, jasmine, rose. I read that in a scientific study, jasmine was found to be more relaxing and sleep inducing than lavender in spite of the well known benefits of lavender. Perhaps lavender still holds that popular spot because jasmine absolute is incredibly expensive and the price of it would be enough to keep you up at night.

Tonight I made it in my Kamjove, steeping almost two teaspoons at 174F for four minutes, then resteeping and combining the two. It is plenty strong enough and this will stretch it and make it a bit more economical.

So you who pray, please say a prayer for Drew and Sarah, for speedy and complete recovery, as well as for their poor, stressed out and worried families.

caile

Oh no. Sending well wishes and prayers.

ashmanra

Thank you!

yyz

Oh my, best wishes for the best of possible outcomes. I’m so sorry this has happened to your nephew.

Nattie

I don’t pray, but sending my best wishes

Maddy Barone

Oh my gosh, how awful. Sending good thoughts for a quick recovery.

Kristal

I will pray for him! How awful!

Christina / BooksandTea

That’s awful. I hope he and his date (if they were also injured) have an easy recovery. Did your family find the other driver?

ashmanra

His date required an eight hour surgery on her arm. It is broken and her radial nerve was severed. She was able to move her fingers last night. My nephew is still on a respirator but is initiating breaths all the time now and has written on a clipboard to communicate, which is great because the fluid on his brain could have meant a severe brain injury. The other driver had been drinking but did stay at the scene with the girl. They could not find my nephew until some time later since he was grown so far.

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers and well wishes! Steepster is such a great
community and I am glad to be here!

ashmanra

That should say “thrown so far.”

Sil

oh my goodness. All my thoughts and prayers go out to the two of them.

boychik

They are in my thoughts

Sami Kelsh

Lots of hugs to you and family, and wishing a speedy recovery for the injured couple. x x x x x x

K S

Just read this. Prayers for nephew, date, and other driver.

Indigobloom

Positive thoughts, and love to your nephew and friend xo

Cwyn

In my thoughts…sounds like the young people are very healthy and this is working strongly in their favor.

Nichole/CuppaGeek

Oh my! Prayers and thoughts are worth all of you!
