    Green tea with a hint of jasmine is the perfect brew for kicking off my maiden internet voyage at our new residence. (Our very own, old Queenslander)
    That will be followed by a glass of lemon iced tea, because it is quite steamy today!

    Wanting to expand on my tea selection. Somehow moisture has gotten into my red berry tea/infusion thingie. And it's all clumped together. *sniffles*

    We currently have:
    Green tea Chai
    Chai
    Lemongrass and Ginger
    Chamomile
    Chinese white tea
    Prince Of Wales
    Ecological Green
    Vanilla and Rooibos
    Green Tea Jasmine (almost out of it)
    Lapsang Souchong (holy crap it smells like wood fire)
    Russian Caravan and
    Ceylon Orange Pekoe
    Green tea cranberry

    I'd like to get some green tea varieties and some more fruity and flowery blends.

    Why, it's tea made from the Prince of Wales, of course!

    Prince of Wales tea blend is a blend of China black teas typically served in the afternoon with scones in Britain. The blend was originally devised for Edward, Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII. The strong earthy scent of Edward's tea reportedly came from high grade Keemun tea from Anhui Province blended with other black teas from around China in order to produce a complex cup of tea. Prince of Wales tea is mild, but full-bodied, with a bright liquor and strong aroma.

    My mother-in-law sent it up with our things, the packet is old as sin, and probably should be tossed. But... I don't know. We're a little reluctant to throw it out.

    Drinking loads of Earl Grey, still, but winding down every once in a while with some organic green chain or green tea jasmine. What's everyone's favorite flavor today? It's frikking winter here and my hands need warming.

    Mea culpa, my friends: I'm drinking coffee today. I've had a very long week, and I needed the caffeine boost (also, I really wanted Chocolate Cream tea, but my wife took the last of it to work with her this morning, so until I can get to the store and restock, I was plumb outta luck, and nothing else sounded as good).

    Oh my... I have a cold, and my savior is called Earl Grey tea with honey in it. <3

    I also need coffee, but mostly the tea. Tea is lovely.
