Tea of the Day: Sangria Punch by Teavanna
Description: Colorful as a drive along the Mediterranean coast, this flavored black tea is deep, complex and full of personality.Rich red grapes, tangy orange slices, juicy peach and crisp apple spring to life with a hint of sweet cinnamon, creating a magical elixir.
Dry tea smells dark and just slightly fruity with a little bit of a tang to it.
Steeped tea smells a little brighter than the dry and tastes smooth and slightly tart and overall very pleasant. It’s really a shame that I discovered this tea after they shut down their website and closed the only brick and mortar store they had in my state. Alas, such is life. Still, it’s worth a try if you can get it!
Liquor is a chestnut brown in the cup
Tea Rating: 4/5
Earworm of the day: Bloom by The Paper Kites.
I am away from home for work training and I’m finding the experience…strange.
On the one hand I appreciate that the company I work for is taking the time to train me and putting me up while I am away. Also, I get to see my family over the weekend, which is good because otherwise I would likely not see them until July, when they come up for the wedding.
On the other hand, I have a lot of time to myself. I’ve realized that even when I am the only human in the house, my dog and sometimes the cats come give me affection, or demand it. I miss my other half, and my best friend, and my fur babies.
But…I’m also not finding that I suddenly hate myself just because I’m alone with only my thoughts and my books to keep me company.
I’ll be glad to go home when it’s time, but so far the experience isn’t too terrible.
