What Would You Like For Tea?

There is nothing like tea to fuel the brain!

Greetings dear reader. I missed a post last week, but I am back with great new content and armed with knowledge gained from the BloggingU course  Blogging 201. I’m excited for some new things I plan on introducing, and the recent new readers I have gained. I hope I am able to provide an experience that everyone enjoys.

I am experimenting with a new feature called Tea-things Thursdays which will be a weekly post on a separate page. I’m going to be including a survey here, so that you may choose exactly what this feature will be. I have a few ideas but I cannot decide on one; so I decided that you should choose. Continue reading

For Those Pensive Evenings

Anybody can be Sherlock with a cup of tea and John.

Hello dear reader, I may have been gone long, but I haven’t been idle. One of my closest friends gifted me a variety of Turkish teas from Lipton. A couple of herbal teas and fruit teas and some plain black tea. Over time I shall be sampling all of them and sharing my views with you. But for now, we shall tackle the Sage tea. Continue reading

Pretty Pekoe

Everything about tea is lovely, from the smell to the colour to the taste.

Hello dear reader. Today, I shall tell you a little something about Orange Pekoe tea. When I first heard about this tea, I thought it was some kind of exotic orange flavoured tea, and when I tasted it, I kept wondering why it did not taste like orange even a little bit. On further investigation, I found out that the name Orange Pekoe has nothing to do with the orange flavour at all. Continue reading

The Wonders of Chamomile Tea

I shall always drink tea, in sickness and in health, till death do us apart.

This past week could be awarded the title of ‘The Worst Week of the Year’ and it would be completely fitting. Because that it is exactly how bad my week was. You might be wondering what could have happened that made it the absolute worst week of the year. Well, I fell ill. It started with a little discomfort in my throat, a slight fever, and in the course of one day, it went from that to a full-blown burning fever and a sore throat so severe that I couldn’t even breathe much less swallow. I felt like I was being slowly roasted, and my throat felt like there were a million needles stuck in it. By the time night rolled around, I was almost delirious with fever and couldn’t even swallow water without squeezing my eyes shut and mentally bracing myself. Continue reading

Tea Fixes Everything

When the soul needs soothing, have a cup of milk tea.

There are times when you feel like nothing is going right, when you feel like the whole world is against you, when you want to have nothing to do with anything, and all for no apparent reason. You feel horrible but you don’t know why. What you actually need at a time like this is good, strong, hearty tea. Milk tea is comfort tea. Personally, I am of the opinion that herbal or green teas are not going to make you feel like somebody is hugging you when you sip them; milk tea is. There is nothing wrong with creamy, sweet, strong tea! I dislike people who think they are intellectually superior just because they have their tea without milk and sugar. And trust me, I know people like that exist. There shall be no tea discrimination on this blog! I believe all teas are equal and that they are wonderful! Continue reading
