Tea of the Day: Chestnut by Adagio Teas

Description: Premium Ceylon black tea flavored with roasted chestnuts. Perfect for enjoying in front of an open fire. With Jack Frost nipping at your nose, this is the ideal time to enjoy this Holiday favorite. Roasty, smooth and full bodied, with pleasant dryness.

Dry tea smells wonderfully sweet and nutty with a hint of caramel

Liquor is a caramely brown in the cup

Has a very similar scent when steeped, just slightly deeper. Tastes exactly like you’d expect from the smell, nutty and sweet, with a smooth and full mouthfeel. Doesn’t need sugar, but if you do happen to add it, it brings out the caramel hint and enhances the body of the tea

Tea Rating: 5/5

Small victory: got myself back into the gym yesterday, after a bit of a hiatus because of stuff that happens in that thing called life.

Bigger victory: My man had one of those “I-just-want-to-become-a-hermit” days but he still went to the gym with me. This is more his victory than mine, of course, because I didn’t have to do much of anything except decide to go to get him to come along. I know, however, how tempting it is to throw hands in the air and say “fuck it” after a day like that.

Biggest victory: In spite of the stresses and pressure we are both under, we’re happy. Enough so that when we met up with a couple of friends for coffee after our workout, they both commented on how happy we are.

And we are, truly. We can both literally have had the worst days and yet within an hour of so of being around each other again, we’re making jokes and laughing. We’re both comfortable enough with each other that we can talk about serious things, things that hurt, things that make us mad, that the conversations only end with us being closer and feeling more secure with each other.

We know we are happy, and don’t need anyone’s validation to prove this, but I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t feel good that other people have noticed enough to comment!

“It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy. ”
― Lucille Ball
