Hello everyone! I hope everything is going well for you! I figured I would try and do something a little different today and do my day in tea! Basically I have pictured all of the tea I drank the other day and am going to share with you, along with links when I can to where I get the tea. I typically drink anywhere from 3-6 cups of tea a day (they are not all caffeinated, I promise!). So, without further ado…my day in tea!
Today I had 5 cups of tea and all started with boiling the water in my Kettle. I had an electric Tea Kettle whenI worked in an office, however since I now work part time from home I find that a)boiling the water in my kettle on the stove is favorable and b)I love to hear the kettle whistle throughout the day!
Cuppa #1: I used to start the day off with a cup of green tea because I really like how “refreshed” and good I felt after drinking it, however pregnancy changes what you can eat and drink and there went the green tea (this was simply a recommendation, not a requirement). Lately I have been loving THIS Scottish Breakfast Blend. I love that it is a more robust masculine taste and it is a good hearty way to start my day off
Cuppa #2: Ah the midmorning tea or elevenses. Typically by now I have finished that first cup, had some regular water and am ready to start the kettle up for another cuppa. This is when my more specialty black or fruity teas will come into play. For my second cup today, I
had Raspberry Rose by one of my all time favorite shops, Tea For All Reasons. She has since sold the retail portion of her business and I’m not sure if the new company stocks this tea or not. This blend is so pretty and combines a black tea with a couple of different fruit flavorings (raspberry and blackberry). Simply delicious and the perfect mid morning pick me up!
Cuppa #3: This cup is my mid day or early afternoon cup. I don’t always drink it as it is typically close or right around lunch time and I’m typically trying to drink regular water or, if I’m being daring, I will have a lemonade or smoothie (I try to save any soda drinking for dinner if I’m going to have one). What I drink varies greatly and if I have found any new blends to try, this is the time of day I normally try them (odd I know). Today I had the Twinings Blackcurrant Breeze tea. My friend and I jokingly call this the stinky tea, but it is really delicious!
Cuppa #4: It’s tea time! It is around 2-3 pm when I pick up my next cup. For my mid afternoon pick me up I stick with a solid fruit flavored black tea. I usually rotate the afternoon cup with three blends, Dowager Countess Grey, Blackberry Sage or the new favorite Passionfruit Peach. Today it was Passionfruit Peach. This cup is also usually my last caffeinated cup, unless I have had one of those days and another cup is needed.
Cuppa #5: My last cup of the day is always my Twinings Nightly Calm tea. I find that this
tea not only tastes really good for a night time tea (cannot stand Sleepytime), but it also just soothes and relaxes me and gets me ready to go to bed. I think it is just the smell of the lemongrass and hint of mint that just puts me in that calming quiet head space. Occasionally I may have a different decaffeinated blend before this, it just depends on how the evening flows.
So that’s it! That was my day in tea! I hope you enjoyed this post. What does your day in tea (or any beverage) look like? Do you drink your tea throughout the day? What teas do you drink at different times of day?
