Anywho, here are some videos to help you make it the next 24 hours!

Happy Almost Weekend! :D

A very long update.

Hey guys.
Sorry I haven't been posting. I have been drinking tea, we'll get to that.
But my lack of posts has to be for the fact My Nana had to get tests done, she just had surgery, and to top it off, Mom has not gotten any better. :/. So, I have been running around trying to do what I can to make things as smooth as possible. So. Yeah. -deep breath-
So. Tea. Yeah. Lol
I can't remember the order I drank in, so here are the teas I drank over the time I was gone.
Gold Peak Tea: Sweet Tea. This was an ok tea. I think it was too sweet. If there is such a thing.

I made Blueberry tea in this ice tea maker I picked up in. It says you can make loose leaf in it, and you can, just it takes a lot to get a good strength. So, I think I'll stick it tea bags. :). Otherwise, this is a good tea, and a good tea maker!!

Nana had testing, so I stopped for a Pumpkin Chai Late from Caribou coffee. Omg. Heaven. That is what is in that cup.

I got a nice sampler from Zhena's Gypsy Tea. I have tried everything. And it's so good. Zhena's never ever disappoints :). I loved the Egyptian Mint the best.

A nice mix of Ginger twist and Bangkok from Spice Merchant. It was a nice mix, and honestly I think the reason I didn't get sick. My whole family came down with a sinus infection. I haven't gotten it yet. -fingers crossed.-

Chai tea from Sahara Bar and Grill. It was ok. Not the worst tea, not the best. It hit the spot though. :). We also smoked Berry Mint Hookah, and that was amazing. Dave wanted to take me out to relax. :). It was much needed!

That's about it on tea.
I am watching my Papa's dog, Cooper. He's a cutie!

So. What have you been up too??

Tea Swag Review: The Ingenuitea and Teavana Perfect TeaMaker

So, I wanted to start reviewing the stuff I (And my Mom) have.

I thought first I'll review these, together, since they are a lot alike, I think. We have The Ingenuitea by Adagio Teas ( Which I have no teas by them! I must buy some soon! And recommendations?) and Teavana's Perfectea Maker thingy. Mom's is the Ingenuitea. I have an older model of the Perfeatea. I got it at GoodWill for 3 bucks. If you're not as lucky as me, it'll set you back about 20 bucks. And I think it's worth every penny.

The Two Brewers

The only difference I think between the two, it the Ingenuitea mesh comes out. You can either see it as a good thing, or a bad thing. I hate it. It also tea stains.  But I like how all of it is see through, and the handle is pretty cool, with the grip and all.

(Today's tea!)

What I like to do, is fill up the cup you are going to use with boiling water, (or regular, and you can just microwave the water to get it hot) add the tea to brewer, and then add the cup of water to the brewer, that was you have the right amount of tea :).

Here's some random pics while I was waiting for the tea to brew! :D

             If that's not sexy, Iunno what is.    


All set! 

When you are done, you're tea leaves is right there. You can either steep again, or just throw it about. :).

I would buy one of these. They are so worth it. :)

What do you steep in?

Weekly Tea!

This week in tea!

I learned how to do a Late. Did you know you can froth milk with just a mason jar? Add milk to the jar, and shake it for about 45 seconds. Taa Daa! Frothed milk. Put it in the microwave for a minute, and you got warm milk!

Spice Merchant Florence tea is a chocolate black tea. And it's amazing as it sounds.


Didn't do a whole lot of tea drinking this week. Saturday I ventured to Whole Foods for the first time. It was ok. It was a little over whelming. I got some tea. -shrugs-. It was to expensive for my taste. And everything fresh, I can get from my farmers market. Steaz was good. :). Nice lemon flavor.


Dave and I went garage sale-ling. I came across this thing:

It was in front of someones house. It's called a Little Free Library. I took a book and a book mark. It had book crossing books! Yay! It was the coolest thing.


I got this tea from Whole Foods. It was really good! I made another Late! Zhena's Gypsy Tea is Coconut Chai. Heavenly. Not too too coconuty and the right amount of chai!


First day back to school. Mom and I went to a little diner down town called Daner's Diner. I love that place. They know us by name, and we know them. They always ask us about our day. They're so nice. I love Mom and Pop places.

Well, Barb is a tea drinker. And she's been a waitress for a while. She always hates the taste of the ice tea that has been out all day. She freshly brews her tea, and it is the best ice tea I've never had from a food place :). It had to get mentioned!

Tea on Lovelies!
