Steeping Inside and Out


So, we’re half way through December. And, half way through the Best of 2009 Blog Challenge. I’m stoked that ‘ve managed to blog every day of December. My writing muscles are getting a workout, but more important than that, I have found great joy in this form of play and expression. Each morning when I wake up, I’m not quite sure what I will blog about, other than knowing the prompt. Each time I sit down to post, something comes that delights me. A totally unexpected benefit to accepting Gwen’s challenge.

On to today’s prompt, Tea of the Year. I found two. One for the inside, one for the outside. Of my body, that is.

As a recovering coffee/chai addict (who occasionally falls off the wagon), when I discovered Numi’s Ruby Chai, I found a tea I can have that has no caffeine, no tannins, and steeps in milk to produce a deeeeeelicious cup of look-alike Masala Chai.

If you want something to heat you up in a different way, I discovered Ruby Chai Appletini using this tea. Sounds like it might be worth a try.

The other is tub tea. Tea bags to steep in the bath. Now, this find was a product of searching for a baby shower favor that was to be given out at a lovely little tea party we had for my daughter [beautifully designed packaging of 2009].

A lovely way to steep is to soak in one, while drinking in the other. That is tea bliss.

Day 16:  Tea of the year. I can taste my favorite tea right now. What’s yours?
