Howdy, dear Posse folks! It pains me to have to admit it to you, but I have fallen off the tea wagon a bit. I wish I could tell you all that I’ve been a tea-sampling fiend, have sipped twenty-jillion teas and here are my top 5 to brew, more or less. Alas, I’ve fallen off the wagon, not so much as in not drinking it, but in not being able to try many new things.
These days I feel like I’m always in a rush and end up reaching for the nearest tea tin, which usually happens to be either Republic of Tea’s Lean Green tea or Zhena’s Ultimate Green. The Zhena’s also includes white tea and matcha, and has a citrus-y flavor; we have that a lot at night as it’s hubby’s favorite. The Lean Green has a slight cinnamon flavor (which it contains) and contains the herb garcinia cambogia, which is said to help burn fat. Since I’m on a major weight-loss campaign, this has been my go-to brew most afternoons. Not sure if it’s doing any good yet, but we’ll see at future weigh-ins.
And now that really, truly cold weather is here in my neck of the woods, I have pulled out my little bag of Georgia Tea Company’s Snowflake, a cheery black tea with coconut and almond. And their rooibos blend, called Nutcracker, with its silver dragees and cute mini snowflake candies, will be making more of an appearance, especially since my son is partial to it. In fact, I think anyone young (or young at heart) would enjoy this fun brew.
And of course, I will be putting my standard Mariage Freres classics (Wedding Imperial and the Marco Polo blends) into heavy rotation.
So what about you? Any great brew or brews you’d like to tell us about?
