Tea Tuesday- Tea for me, because no one seems quite as obsessed as me

(I promise I will post about M and my adventures in Winnipeg for his trip, but being that I write ahead of time, that will probably go up later this week!)

In the last little while, I have received three new teas, and they are fantastic 🙂 They are a little different from the other teas I have, and I am quite enjoying them! What teas are they, you ask??

The first tea is Eggnog from David’sTea, and it was part of my Christmas present from Tiffany. I am not a fan of actual eggnog, but I like to try all of the David’s teas that I can. However, I didn’t get a chance to pick this up myself, so I was a little bummed. And then TA-DA!!! Tiffany gave me this 🙂 It’s quite mellow and relaxing, and you can really taste the white chocolate chips.  It is a rooibos, so I like to err on the long side of steeping, and add a few dashes of milk! I would drink this at any point during the year, as I don’t associate eggnog with Christmas. That and the fact that I truly wish it was Christmas all year round.

The second tea is Cranberry tea from a local shop in Washington, from Katelynne! She always knows exactly what kind of tea I should drink. It’s her super power, I think. I don’t like eating cranberries, but I love cranberry in tea! I like the Cranberry Pear from David’s, but I love this one more- the cranberry is tart but still mellow, and is great for waking up in the morning! I love my flavoured black teas, I am not ashamed to admit it, and this tea is no exception 🙂

The third and final tea is Jubilee from Fortnum and Mason. I am truly fortunate to have wonderful coworkers, and one stopped at Fortnum (on my recommendation!) and bought this for me. It is a blend of black teas from Ceylon, China, and India, and it is as smooth and sweet as it promises! While I love flavoured teas, sometimes a lovely black tea is perfect, too. This tea was created to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and celebrate it does! Sidenote 1: Fortnum and Mason have the most beautiful caddies. Sidenote 2: If you have the chance, you must visit Fortnum!!

Do you have any favourite teas? Any recommendations??

Until tomorrow,

    We love turmeric tea (which isn’t ‘technically’ tea but still delicious), have you tried it? Check out our instagram @afterWOD, we just posted about turmeric tea today!
