One of my favorite things about this lengthy Christmas break from work has been the time to have tea in the afternoon. Just have tea. Not tea and the afternoon’s load of desk work, not tea and a meeting, not tea left to get cold while I scramble around doing housework, just tea. And for these pleasant, non-multitasking breaks, I’ve been trying to choose teas that have been shared, swapped, gifted, or hand-selected so that I can appreciate them.
And I did appreciate this one! (Especially to calm down after a crazy run to Walmart—not only New Year’s Eve shopping, but frigid weather on the way—the bread and milk crowd was out, too.)
The mojito scent jumped right out of the bag, and carried forward nicely when it steeped. As far as the pomegranate: From childhood, I have never been a very good fruit or vegetable eater. Thus, my quality time with real pomegranates has been limited to “pomegranate flavor,” which always comes through to me as vaguely fruity and artificial. In this blend, I got fruity but not artificial—a nice change of pace.
I think this was a sample from Lexie Aleah, and if I’ve mixed up my donors, I apologize! May you all finish the year well, content, and at peace.
