Todays tea dragon is holding a labradorite stone <3
Love it. Labradorite is a special stone.
Ali, his tail really captures the flow and marbling of the stone. It’s spectacular!
Ali, I sent you a trade offer. Feel free to decline or counteroffer. Your dragon today has such interesting marbling. Lovely.
WooHoo, made it to Friday and the long weekend!! Be blessed tea peeps!
Excited to make a change. I have available Blood Orange, Mocha Nut Mate, and Vanilla. I am interested in trying caffeine free options. Newbie here who has never made a trade. Make me an offer.
Sent you an offer! Feel free to decline or counter offer though!
Welcome NT! I made a trade offer, feel free to reject or revise. Whatever you feel like, we have fun here.
Hello New Tea.
Good evening, good morning CT 🫖🪴🪴🪴. I tried to come up with a bit of Thai scenery, two tries, one watercolor and one acrylic. Happy Friday before the long weekend 🇵🇷
Michelle, I love it! I think we were both thinking of the same thing with this blend. Delicious!!
I think so too! Good evening Chasi! 🫖🪴. That is such a pretty cream pitcher in your picture. Yes, I had to edit that because voice recognition just didn't know what to do with two pseudo-homonyms. Lol. On another note, I hope your post more pictures of your little terrarium, I'd like to see it from other angles. I'm really going to have to try one myself, if I can figure out a safe place to put it where the cats won't follow rule number one. Everything belongs on the floor!
So creative, I love it.
Thanks, Michele 😁. I decided it needed props, so I cannibalized a citrus bag for some fish net and made use of recently steeped Ti Kuan Yin leaves ... They reminded me of seaweed. 😅
Thank you, Sue 😁 I love your beautiful geometrics, and the teacup is lovely!
I love your mixed media approach!
I am still experimenting and learning. We're never too old to learn 😉
Michelle, your artwork is lovely. Very creative use of what you have at hand too.
Thank you, Mary. 😁
Hello tea fronds and Welcome to the CT for July! 🪴😘 This tea was delicious without adding sweetened condensed milk, but it was too good with it. 😁 Happy Fri-YAY. We made it!!! 🥳🎉
It was also very good with half and half! I didn't have any sweetened condensed milk in the house. But I did add a little stevia as well. Considering Thai tea is normally green tea with yellow food coloring for the visual effect, I think Adagio did a great job on this one.
Finally Friday!!! 🙂
Have a great day everyone
July has arrived!
summer seems to be flying by!
Happy Friday... 1 day until vacation
Happy Canada Day to our northern neighbors who sip twice as much tea as we do.
They have a higher percentage of tea drinkers than the United States does. That probably boosts their tea consumption. I wonder how the mathematically average tea consumption of a Canadian compares to a Communitea member. Happy Canada Day, Canadians. May your celebrations be improved with tea.
Paula, I bet we're running neck and neck, lol. As much as I drink, I may be surpassing some of our northern neighbors 🫖🫖🫖🪴🪴🪴🪴
Happy Canada Day to our friends up north 🇨🇦 I’m planning on heading up for a visit this summer 🤩
Shelly Canada is a fun place to visit. I've been a few times and enjoyed all of it except Saskatoon in February. Your eyeballs steam because it's so cold. 🥶
Finally Friday and I'm finally in the last push of finishing my thesis! I'm so excited I could honestly cry 😭 I stress baked some chocolate sourdough snickerdoodles that I plan on celebrating with once I submit this to my advisor for hopefully the final rounds of editing! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
You got this Sara!!! And those cookies sound amazing!!!!💜🥰💜
Thank you!!! 💜
Sara, that is a great accomplishment. I finished a Master's Degree in my 50s and it felt very satisfying to meet a goal I had set for myself. To go even further is impressive.
You've got this one!!
There's something extra satisfying when you work on something for so long and see it coming together at the end! It's been a long road but it feels so good to finally see the payoff 🥲
Wow, you've been working on your thesis and still find time to care for your family and pups and bake beautiful and tasty creations. I am impressed.
Thank you!! 💜 it hasn't been the easiest at times but I'm thankful and excited to finally be done with school!
Wow, that's such a great accomplishment!
In honor of Stranger ThIngs premiering today, I wanted to share the time i got to eat dinner with Hopper and Bob!! In 2018, Uncle Charlie was doing signings at the Indianapolis Comic Con and invited us out for the weekend as his guests, Saturday night a ton of people got together for a fancy pants dinner at this swanky restaurant because Easter was the next day, Jake and I were lucky enough to be invited as well, and it was a fun and ridiculously surreal evening, even funnier is Easter was on April 1st and so many people were like is this an April fools joke? But it was a real once in a lifetime amazing experience, i ate lobster mac and cheese and sat in awe most of the evening listening to the wonderful stories they all shared. *starting at the bottom*---Carlos Alazraqui, My fiancee Jake, me, Uncle Charlie, Nolan North, Jonathan Frakes, Veronica Taylor, David Harbour ( Hopper!) Sean Astin (Bob) but he'll always be Rudy and Samwise to me, the others were a casting agent and friends of people there and I honestly cannot remember their names and feel bad about it. The evening was awesome as was the entire weekend💜🥰💜
It was so fun A!! They were all the sweetest people💜🥰
Age, that had to be a blast!
Michelle it was amazing!!! We got the VIP treatment all weekend and most special out of all of it was sitting with Uncle Charlie at his booth when he was signing stuff for fans. It was so endering to hear all the story's about how many lives he touched by voicing characters. Like I'm in awe of his work, but he's Uncle Charlie to me. To some people he's their OZZY, and watching them meet him was just so pure. 💜🥰💜
Wow! What an awesome experience for you! Certainly a once in a lifetime experience you will treasure for a long time.
I still am in awe💜🥰
I would have nerded out so hard!
Oh we were!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
Age, that sounds amazing! Do you mind if I ask who your uncle is? I love identifying voice actors in the video games I play. One of the most fun parts of discovering Critical Role was realizing that two of my favorite game characters are voiced by two of the people in Critical Role.
Charlie Adler💜🥰 I have not personally met any of the critical role people but I know he is very close with all of them. 💜
Great story and memories, Age!! 😎
Thank you Shelly 💜 it was a fantastic experience!
Wow...now that is a time to remember.
Mary it was one for the ages😉
Wow Age, I think I would have been a goofball staring and pinching myself.
Lol Christine don't think I didn't go to the bathroom and while washing my hands look in the mirror and ask myself out loud. Is this for real?😂
Good morning, and a big hello, my dear tea friends. Enjoy this wonderful tea today, and it's. a good one as an iced latte.
I love to latte this tea, I feel like it reveals its true magic!!!💜🥰💜
Happy International Joke Day!
What??? You're pregnant!?!? Happy International Joke Day Sweetie. lol :)
getting sleepy, have a wonderful Friday tea friends!
A F, have a good Friday my friend, and good sleep. You and your family have a happy 4th of July
Have a fabulous Friday tea peeps!

I love the precision of this! Scotland the Brave and Amazing Grace always give me the chills! https://youtu.be/5-9wqJykyeg
Agree. It’s beautiful.
Twyla Moonbeam—looks like an awesome concert / festival.
Yes Paula! Thanks for the inspiration to post upon my fav Drum & Bagpipe band!! 🏴
Thanks for sharing.
No tea packet today?? 😢 should have opened my box sooner! Oh well! Here is a picture of all of my tea pins that I have so far. Hopefully a new one comes out today!! It will be a couple weeks before I get back to the park to find out!
The Cinderella one with her slipper as the tea pot lid💜😭💜 that is too precious 💜
That was my first one!! 💕
Those pins are all so cute. The genie lamp teapot is my favorite. Sorry you're missing a packet today.
What a great collection!
Thanks! I don’t usually buy pins. But when I saw they were teapots and cups. I just knew I had to have them.
Gorgeous pins! Such detail.
I agree they are so fun to look at and see different details each time.
I love them so much! I wish Disney sold them online. I’d buy them all 🤩
These pins are adorable.
Good morning everyone!!!
Good morning everyone. Happy first day of July and happy Friday! I hope you all have a terrific day and a great start to your weekend. God bless...
Have a fun weekend, Marlicia!
Oh, thank you, Shelly. You do the same. You get an extra day this weekend, don't you? I have my writer's group tonight, so I'm looking forward to that. God bless...
Happy Birthday Brigitte! I spy your birthday hat!
Happy July! Busy month for my family, lots of birthdays to celebrate!
Happy Friday Sue!
Good morning Dorothy! Have a wonderful holiday weekend! I hope you have some time for you, to relax. Give the Tazer and Yogi a hug for me.
Good morning Heather. Great picture of Fox. He looks like he is ready for some serious play time.
Good morning and happy July! I don't have this month's box, so I won't be sipping along (most of the time), but I'll still be lurking around the chat. 😇
I might be doing that next month. I need to start drinking through the tea stash!
Happy Birthday Stephanie C ! I see you wearing your party hat this morning 🎉
Good morning! This tea sounds amazing! I haven't even read reviews yet and I've wishlisted it lol. Have a great start to your weekend, folks!
Happy Birthday, Stephanie!
Happy Birthday Stephanie!
Hey, July time so I am back! Strong start with Thai Tea
Welcome back 😁
Heather, Fox is going to have a ball this weekend (sorry, could not help myself). Hope you have a lovely weekend too.
He will! And no need to be sorry! It was begging to be said. We're headed up to the UP in Michigan this afternoon until later next week! Lots of puppy on the lake pictures to follow.
Puppy up the lake or in the lake??
Happy birthday Stephanie. 🎈🎈🎂🎂🎁🎁
Happy Birthday Stephanie! 🥳
Great photo today, Julia! I’m with you in spirit ☀️🏝
Happy July! We are halfway through 2022!
Happy birthday; Happy Stephanie's New Year. I hope it is the best, so far! 🫖🪴🍨🎂🍦🪅
Good morning everyone. Happy July! 😊 Have a great 4th weekend and drink lots of tea 🍵 😊 😉 😋 ☺️ 😜 🍵 ☕️🍵🫖🫖🫖🫖🫖🍵☕️🕢.
Goood Morning all! Playing along at home this month. I do have Thai Tea so will sip on that today. I'll do what Marjorie is doing and either sip the same tea or blend something similar for that day. My streaks will probably also come to an end this month as we are traveling and not sure I'll be able to keep posting each day. But, we will see. I hope you all are having a great Friday so far!
Photo posting is easier to do than chatting, and it’s a nice way to share your adventures. Or sometimes , give the hotel guests something to ponder as I moved a few things to get my shot this morning in the hotel’s coffee/tea bottega
Yeah, I will keep posting on IG (as long as I have cell signal) but not sure I'll be chatting much. It's easy to take photos as I am out and about and then compile them in a post in the evening or something.
I'm taking July off too. After 25 consecutive months, I need a chance to drink my stash.
I do plan on seeing if I can make a small dent in my stash. I haven't been here as long as you, but my stash is out of control.
Looking forward to seeing what you are drinking! Have a great vacation!
Thanks Marjorie! I hope you have a great time on yours as well!
Wishing you great travels and looking forward to keeping up with your adventures on IG! I haven't been here long at all and I am already trying to figure out what month I can "take off" to drink down! So I feel ya!
Thanks Ali! It's easy to build up such a big stock with all the great deals, cards, gifts, and everything else they have here.
Jeff, it’s all the deals that get me every time!
Happy birthday Stephanie 🎈
Good morning! Still adulting over here! Waiting for the weekend so maybe things will calm down! Hope all is well with everyone
What did the kettle wear to the parTEA?
A favorite hot little number?
An oolong dress. It was quite pu-ehrTea.
What type of dreams does tea have?
Does it mostly dream in black and white?
I would think so… ;)
Dreams filled with anxieTEA. "Oh no, what's going to happen to me in the morning? Am I going to be slurped again? Will I disappear?"
Oh my! That is a perfect idea!
I don’t know, but they’re probably not very oolong.
Haha! So close!
It dreams of grow into tall, ancient trees! So we can drink ancient tea!
Good morning all! The fisrt day of a new month is always exciting but even more so when coming back from a month off.
Good morning everyone. My husband hit another deer with his car last night so we'll be dealing with car issues today. Blah. Luckily I'll have some Thai tea to cheer me up. I've been looking forward to this one.
Oh no! That's awful! :( That was how my cousin found out she is horribly allergic to deer. She accidentally hit a deer and ran out of her car to check on the deer and hugged him... And then she went into anaphylactic shock. O_O She was in the hospital for almost a week. So she can never touch deer.
Oh my goodness..Samantha..ugh, two cars and now waiting on a third... All the best Positivity to you for the outcome!
Sorry to hear it, Samantha! In 2020..the first time ever I had such an incident--in October (Running season)..a deer just ran out...terrible timing...and clipped my car. So unnerving. And the deer didn't make it 😭. However, Only the casing of the headlight was cracked from it all. My goodness..it really shakes ya up and its sad and can really cause alotta damage to the car. Very sorry again. And, Cassidy, oh my goodness..Bless your Sister!
So sorry to hear that. That is not a pleasant situation either and really does rattle one's nerves. You were lucky in a way that it just caused minor damage. We've already had to replace 2 cars because of deer. Waiting to find out what will happen with this one.
Had a deer jump into the side of my car (I will swear to my dying day, it hit me, I did not hit it) when I was 16. Thanksgiving day. Totaled the hand-me-down minivan. Took out the whole side of the car and the windshield. Only reason I know I hit the breaks (I don’t remember) is because the rear view mirror was jammed under the gas pedal when I went to move my car off the road. Glass in my pants and deer fur on my purse, but not a scratch on me. I was very fortunate.
Wow Elizabeth! You were very lucky!
Hope he’s ok!
Yes, physically he's ok. But he's very blue and stressed about the car.
Happy July, everyone! I'm excited to be back here in CT! I promise to post Costa Rica pics, but couldn't resist sharing an extreme throwback pic to 2001 when I visited Thailand. This was my first "adventure" trip that would turn into sooooo many more! Right when I went to pet the tiger he yawned/growled/meowed and oh boy, will that wake you up! Hope everyone has been super duper and Happy Sipping!
What's up!!! Welcome back, ArtyJen! Looking forward to your pics!
It's wonderful to be back, Twyla! I definitely missed all the positive vibes here :)
Yay! Welcome back, Jen! Great photo from your first trip. I can’t wait to see Costa Rica pics 😎
Thanks, Shelly! I have missed everyone a lot. I'm happy to be back in the mix :)
Welcome back ❤
Thanks, Karen! Good to see everyone again!
Good morning, everyone! About to head out and take my mom to her doctor's appointment. Should be fine, but both of us probably won't feel well afterwards.
Sending hugs and strength!
Thank you so much! So far so good, but they haven't taken her back yet. 🤣
So excited to be back with the communiTEA!
Good Morn, Friends!! Happy FriYay to thee! I loooved the Thai Tea today!
Thai tea is delicious...both hot and cold.
I swear, guys, I need a pick-me up. I think I might have to open my new bag of Woodie's "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer". It is super hard to get back into my hacked Instagram account. Either the verification code goes to the hacker's text or Instagram asks for a selfie video, which requires a lot of head turning. I had a spinal fusion in my neck in 2019 and I lack full range of motion. My selfie videos keep getting denied -- I'm thinking due to this and the fact that I have gained some weight since my last selfie on my account. Now my neck hurts where the fusion is and I'm getting frustrated. (sigh) Okay. Just needed to vent. I'm good. I think I'll have that tea soon. With some chocolate honey.
ALLove to you, Tahlia! Hope that gets sorted, quick!!!...And Feel better soon!
Ugh. Neck issues are awful. I hope resolution comes soon. 😘
Good morning everyone! Did not get very much sleep last night because my dad had to wake up at a horrible time to pick up my brother and his girlfriend from the airport. Direct flight for them, but very long drive for my dad. I think I maybe got about 4 hours of sleep. Currently eating breakfast on the porch
Dang... that's tough. I hope you can get some rest today and that lack of sleep doesn't hinder you from having a great day!
We're all taking a nap at this point!😂
☀️Good morning all!!!☀️
Love this one iced!!!
Since Paula has been posting all her cool ~Drum and Bagpipe photos~..thought I would post a collage of my fav Scottish Drum and Bagpipe band, Albannach. 🏴 Here's an oldie but goodie vid of them in Edinburgh. https://youtu.be/l0mypcwk2M4
Yeeeeah, Paula!! 🥁🏴
Oh I LOVE Albannach. They used to come to our renn fair every year. They have so much energy and presence on the stage!!!
Elizabeth, that's awesome that you, too, have been Albannach'd. I have such a crush on Jamesy. 🤷♀️🆒️💯
Yay for starting July with thai tea!! I am going to mix my portion with a bit of peach
My July box just came in yesterday - perfect timing!
I just finished a 2nd interview for a position that would change my life. I feel like it went well 🤞🏻
Hey Shelly! Best, of the best my dear Tea-Pal. I wish you an early Happy 4th and I hope you're having a great summer.If you get the job, I will buy you all the red rooibos you can drink. He he he As you put it...sip sip no way! Lol
Haha! Woodie, you crack me up! Thanks for making me smile and for all of your good vibes! You are the best, always making us laugh and keeping things light! The world needs more Woodie!!
Shelly, I am praying you get it.

Julie P, did the adventurous climber make it down without assistance??
Good morning, people of the tea. TGIF! We will be heading out to Dodger Stadium today to see them play one of their big rivals - the San Diego Padres. They started a long streak of 11 home games last night., and we have tickets for several of them. Since the stadium is over an hour away, we will stay at a hotel overnight tonight because tomorrow’s game is at 4pm. I will be taking my tea with me to have tonight before bed and tomorrow morning. I’m looking forward to getting to use my new travel kettle for the first time. I got the one that looks like an insulated tumbler, and it’s got variable temperature settings. Several of you have it, which is how I found out about it. I’m really excited to put it to work. I love the portability of it!
Have fun at the game, Jan!
Enjoy the game Jan! I use to be a huge SD Padres fan back when Tony Gwynn played for them.
I love the look of safflowers (which spell check wants to make say wet waffles?) In a tea! What flavor notes does it bring, before I begin to see if I can add it to a blend? Anyone know?
I, for one, don’t love the look of wet waffles. 😂 For me safflower is visual (a pop of color dry and it imparts golden color to infusion) and saffron is flavorful. Safflower on its own is the slightest bit floral, though some say it can be slightly tart or smoky, and typically other flavors mask any flavor that might be from the safflower.
I love those and cornflowers.
Look they will be on Selefina soon! https://www.selefina.com
For those interested… Today’s teapot calendar pic features a Rothschild design teapot and some delicious looking desserts displayed on some cake stands. Here’s the link to the history that’s included on the calendar…
I love this tea; going into my wishlist now, and likely soon into my next cart.
Happy birthday Joan! 🥳
Teas I've had so far today: Teawrks botanical black (the closest I could find to a Thai tea in my collection) and a cold brew from TeaPigs that's supposed to taste like watermelon but just tastes like hibiscus... I think adagios watermelon flavor has set the bar high for me! Trying to figure out what I'm making next.
Photograph taken after job interview. I so needed to focus on what they could have asked me. So, photograph comes later.
Andrea, sending prayers and all of the best vibes!! You got this!!
Thanks! I'm not 26 with little job experience, so I'm walking away with my head held high.
Praying for your success Andrea!
Hi my tea friends hope you have a great day!☕️🫖❤️🐈⬛
Hi Linda! I hope you and Violet have a wonderful weekend!
You to Shelly❤️🐈⬛
I love Coconut🥥🥥🥥🥥💞💖💗💓
Tea Talk Time! :)
Join the video chat about today's featured tea.
hello july! 4 more weeks ‘til my vacation :) super excited
I am just finishing my cup of Thai Tea. It wasn’t what I was expecting but I think that was in part due to my brewing technique. I followed the instructions and brewed it at 212 for 3 minutes. I think it brought out bitterness from the tea. I would have loved more coconut taste. I don’t add sweetners or milk to my tea because every time I do, it’s the wrong taste for me. If I had another packet with which to experiment, I think I would bring the water temp down to 190 or 195, add some more coconut, and brew for 3 minutes.
I always brew my flavored black tea at less than boiling. They seem to go bitter very quickly. Also, very mineral heavy water can make bitterness stand out.
I usually do to, but I’m going to plead that I wasn’t quite awake when I stasrted the kettle, and I just glanced at the package instructions. Usually when I see that a blend has black tea, I automatically turn the temp down. In fact, I often brew just about all teas at 195. However, doing so sometimes backfires on me because the lowered temp doesn’t allow all the flavors to come through. I guess I should increase my brew time.
I can't join today's tea talk. Internet is too unstable. I'll check back later if there's any highlights! Y'all have fun!
I never heard of Technoblade before May's tea sample but heard from a very distraught fan today that he'd lost his battle with cancer. His dad put out a final video for him last night and it's very touching.
I read about that today too. :(
Today’s tea tasted well blended. I don’t have the condensed milk or coconut milk, so I drank it plain. I would have to ask a friend who went to Thailand if she had any tea while there. Our conversation was more about the food.
Hi everyone! Happy Friday! i am taking a break from monthly CommuniTEA for a short while (i have a major backlog of tea I need to get through) but if anyone has a Card for RAJA OOLONG CHAI they want to trade for something else I have - please make me an offer :-)) I have three and I want to level-up the sample if possible. Thank you!
made an offer. Feel free to counter if you prefer
Beth, I sent you an offer. Feel free to decline or counteroffer.
I mentioned earlier that I was going to take my new travel kettle with me for an overnight stay between Dodger games. I took it out of the box after I wrote my note, washed it, read the directions, and decided to take it on its maiden voyage this morning, in case I ran into any hitches. Man, that kettle works like a charm! It’s compact, variable temps, quiet, and quick! Another thanks to those who brought it to my attention. It’s the Warm-y one. It looks like an insulated coffee travel mug.
Happy Birthday Joan!
According to my national day calendar, today is National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day. What are some creative ice cream flavors you've tried? Were they any good?
bacon maple syrup was big around here awhile back! I am more traditional, tea berry, peanut butter ripple, rocky road, cookies and cream, ya know, classics!
Maple bacon sounds delicious! I've tried a bourbon ice cream that was really good, but I agree... You can't go wrong with the classics.
I had garlic ice cream many years ago at a garlic festival in California. I was surprised that it was good. I made sweet corn ice cream and strawberry balsamic ice cream, both were really good.
Garlic ice cream sounds interesting. I love garlic, so I wouldn't say no to a sample.
theres a specialty ice cream shop here called "oddfellows" with some super interesting flavors. i remember having burnt marshmallow last time i went :)
Ooh... that would be good... depending on how burnt the marshmallows are. LOL
Just going to leave these here: https://www.teachef.com/recipe/2083/mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream.html
We have a place in my town that makes some really interesting flavors sourcing local ingredients! Currently, a couple of creative flavors on the menu include Jack and Coke, Raspberry Honey Walnut, Blueberry Mojito, and Smoked Cream Chip. They have Lavender Queen Bee on the menu at all times. It’s made with local honey and it’s divine! I think I need to go now 😉
Van Leeuwen has some crazy ones going on, including kraft mac and cheese. Which is actually better than you might think. And also creepy.
Durian ice cream which was good once you got past the scent.
Happy birthday, Stephanie! 🎈🎈🎈🎂🎈🎈🎈
Have a great day everyone!
I am looking for 2 Cream teas. Does anyone want to trade?
I might have one, I can't recall if that got traded the other day or not. Feel free to poke around.
Fudge, it did get traded, I just looked. Sorry, I do hope you get the last two ya need.
Jennifer, I do this too! I think I have something and then realize I traded it 😁
Ruth, I sent you a proposal. Feel free to decline or counteroffer.
I would try this again and add coconut milk to lean into the strong coconut flavor.
Happy Canada Day to our tea fronds north of the border! 🇨🇦
I had some slapstick comedy moments this morning while making tea. First I opened the Communitea box upside down, then I bobbled my tea packet and it went flying across the kitchen.......it was wild.
Sounds like you day can only get better!
Happy Birthday Stephanie! Make the most of your day with a cuppa of your favorite.
I gave this one to my mom since she lived in Thailand when she was around my age. It brought back good memories for her.
Good thing I checked the site or I would've started the communitea backwards with July 31st!
How does a normal person deal with stress? I bake and I apparently write theology papers to deal with stress too. LOL. Week 6 is now done and week 4 is just wrapping up. Much love to all of you!
You’ve got this! It sounds like you’ve been called to do it 😊
What a weird day this has been for me. The vision in my left eye went fuzzy or cloudy on me. I made the mistake of calling my parents about it and they went into a panic that I may be having a stroke. Of all days for this to happen when our car got towed away this morning and I don’t have an easy way to get to an emergency room. Luckily the problem went away and I seem to be doing fine. I will call my doctor’s office on Tuesday.
My prayers are with you!
Thank you. I appreciate that.
Oh no! I hope you're okay! Maybe you just got a piece of junk in your eye? I hope it's nothing serious. 😟
I've prayed and put you in my personal prayer request book, Samantha. Please try to take it easy. God bless...
Thank you Marlicia. I will take it easy. I just had a relaxing walk in the woods and now I'll sit for awhile. I called a nurse for advice and she told me at this point I can wait until Tuesday to call my doctor so I'm relieved to hear that.
Samantha, I hope you are okay. If it happens again you may want to find a way to get to the ER.
Ok. Good advice. We now have a rental car so we are good to go.
Prayers, Samantha! Hopefully, it’s stress related. If you get worse or have more symptoms, go to the ER. 😘
Thank you! I will.
Fingers crossed that this is something minor!
Yes, i'm planning on putting this behind me and being completely fine.
How scary! I hope everything is ok!
Yes. It was weird but everything seems to be ok now. I'll look into it more on Tuesday.
Today's pic is hubs and I on the bridge of the Enterprise from the original Star Trek series. There's an amazing replica in Ticonderoga, NY that includes some items from the show abd has regular visits from William Shatner, George Takei, and more. If you're a Trek fan and in the Adirondack region of NY, I highly recommend a visit.
Cool photo! Your husband looks like Will Riker.
Great photo! You’re looking so pretty in the top you sewed 😎
Happy Canada Day from our Canadian travels!
Happy Canada Day !
Mom's appointment is over and I celebrated with a Moscow Mule. Now, I am technically not supposed to have alcohol as my body does not physically process it and break it down, so I just had a small shot that I sipped on. The 1st sip blew my face off. 🤣 But after that it was great! Has anyone tried this kind of drink before?
I had a memorable jalapeño mule of some sort in the Philadelphia airport some years back. It was SO good!
SWEET! I live just outside of Philadelphia and I've been to that airport a few times. It is MASSIVE and super fun to explore! The one I had today was a surprisingly pleasant experience and I'm actually wondering exactly how much vodka they put in it... XD
I enjoy a gin mule! I’m a gin gal and always tell people I have a gin gene as my mom and brother favor gin, too. Side note, we have no issues metabolizing alcohol. You must have to be so cautious.
Nice! I've heard of gin mules. Honestly, I am fine with never/almost never drinking alcohol, but sometimes I hear about a drink that sounds interesting and I just want to try a shot size of it. I've never been hospitalized, but I also chalk that up to being careful and only consuming a small amount, but I generally lose my memory of the day if I consume alcohol. On the bright side, people say I'm very happy and social. Too bad I don't remember any of it. Haha!
Hello, and happy Friday, Rebekah! God bless...
Good afternoon, everyone. Just got back from the dentist for a consult about my TMJ, had lunch and am now having a lovely cup of Where's My Chocolate Monkey (full disclosure, I tend to like my own blends, LOL) and a salted caramel stroop waffle while getting ready to do some bills and the like. What are you all up to? God bless
I just got back from a nice walk in the woods where I was already thinking about tomorrow's tea. I'm wondering if I should cold brew or not.
That sounds lovely, Samantha--and oh, decisions, decisions, LOL. I can't wait to see what you decide. God bless...
Marlicia, we are watching the Cubs/Red Sox game. Cubs are ahead 6 to 5 so far...hurray! Seventh inning stretch time.
Oh, no, say it isn't so, Mary. I don't follow sports much anymore, but the Bo Sox were my first favorite team. God bless...
Stroup waffles are the best!
Hi everyone. It has been a busy day preparing and packing for our weekend trip. Both of our boys and their families are joining us for a long weekend (and Birthday celebration for my Firecracker husband). Heading to a cabin in Blue Ridge, GA. Forgot to take a photo today, but will snap a photo when I can relax on the front porch this evening. Have a great weekend.
This sounds like a lot of fun, Lilly. Safe trip and have a wonderful weekend. Sending good birthday wishes to your husband. God bless...
Hi All! The printable August Schedule is available now if anyone is interested. Just click on the CommuniTEA - 08 August document. https://1drv.ms/u/s%21AtNHJ7-qHywohxAV2l7kyR1B392j?e=rZ3j0u
Thanks, Jeff. I'll be sitting the next few out, probably until Christmas, but I like seeing what is coming up so I can, if I have the blend, sip with you all. God bless...
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for always putting these together, Jeff!
Thank you, Jeff!
Please forgive my messy background for today's tea! That is my aunt's stuff that we're still trying to get put away. 🤣
Happy birthday Joan🎈
Our new prep cook had orient today and is starting work Tuesday, I can't wait to have the extra help in the kitchen!
Hi peeps, I hope you all have a great 4th of July weekend! I'm sorry I missed the chat today (what did I miss?!) but I had to get some things done... I have an order pending that is stuck in purgatory/ Breinigsville, PA lol. I wonder how long it will take with the long weekend... I can't wait to get my tea! :D
Back from vacation and turning cards and stewing tea! Todays reading says it’s time to work on being kind to yourself (king of wisdom) as you work to rebuild after things have changed (tower in reverse)
Mmmmm, I'm feeling this one! :)
🇺🇦 Have a wonderful weekend, all!
I got an herbal tea magnet card. Any herbal tea drinkers interested in a trade for this card? EDIT: Michele, I hope you love your new herbal magnet! I’m so happy it works for you 😘😘
Though it didn't taste exactly like the thai tea I'm used to, I did enjoy the tea this morning!
Hahaha. Going through the whole tea chat for the first time at 4:30 makes for a lengthy read! So sad I had to miss tea talk today (FOMO is real) but I met the admin team at my new school today and that was a really positive experience. We introduced ourselves by identifying the most interesting things in our offices. So I waxed poetic about my tea station and invited everyone in for a cuppa!
So glad it went well! I hope you have a wonderful time in the new location and they appreciate all the awesomeness you bring. 🥰
Exciting! My daughter is starting at a new school too. She’s excited m! I hope you love your new position!
Well, everyone, I'm unplugging early today. I've got my in person writer's group in a couple of hours and I need to spend some time with hubby and the girls, plus eat. God bless, have a super evening and pleasant dreams.
I'm in a trading mood so sent out a bunch of offers. Feel free to decline or counteroffer if you wish.
*me waking up in the morning after having drunk the tea the day before right before bed*: “oh man! I forgot to review the tea!” *notifications*: “x, y and z give your review a thumbs up”. *checks what I said* 😅😂
Did you do it in your sleep? I always fear I'm going to wake up to have posted something on social media in my sleep - ha!
Had definitely already taken my sleep meds. I don’t often remember what happens after that. I’m not allowed on amazon at that point in the evening…
Finally checking in today!! Returned moving van & tow dolly….only took 4.5 hours to gas up truck & drop it off. Had lunch and now AT HOME!!!! Just now sinking in that WE DID IT!!!! New job, new apt, new life!!! I remind myself of that awesomeness when Im in 8 lanes of traffic :)))))). Thank you for all the encouragement along the way, my lovely Tea Peeps!!
Congratulations! In my book the hard part is over… moving. 😝
The 1550 mile drive with 3 of us crammed into a moving truck was…….really icky. :))) But that part is doneeee!!
So excited for you, Julie! It’s been an adventure, I’m sure. Now to get settled and enjoy your new start. When do you report to work?
First day is July 11th….my birthday!! Isnt that perfect!!
Julie, thank you for inviting us in for the adventure. Can't wait to here what's next.
My tea was the first thing I unpacked because this group is my zen!! My CT mug arrived unbroken too!! Havent found my Christmas one yet…..hoping it survived as well. I appreciate all the support & kind words through all of this — you guys helped me through an incredibly stressful time. Means a lot!!!! ♥️💙💜💖
So glad you ca start your new adventures now!!! And that you found your tea!! PrioriTEAS! Hope you can relax and take it all in a bit this weekend. And stay hydrated out there!
I'm so excited for you, Julie! I can't wait to see more pics from your new home. Glad you got there safe and everything went well.
Anybody know what I do to change my state on my CT photos?? I put in new address for shipping, but CT stuff still shows NC….. Doing this with my iphone — no internet yet and PC in a box & my desk isnt assembled. Ha ha.
I think it changes on the CT photos after you place an order, but I'm not 100% sure.
Oops double post…..😬🙊🪲
As if we need another reason to place an order, lol!!
Yep! I believe it’s influenced by the last order.
I love those pins, Tiffany! Where did you get them?
Today has flown by....busy busy and still more to do...hope you all are well😘
Thank you for the birthday wishes. Thai chai is such a great tea.
Happy Birthday Stephanie🎉
Happy birthday Stephanie!
Happy bday Steph C!
Happy birthday Stephanie! 🥳
I am looking for a Tiger Eye to make a sample before I place my order. Willing to trade a Sagittarius, Citron Green, Black Forest Cake, Hazelnut or White Peach. 🤗
I think I can hook you up. Trade coming in hot... ☕
Thanks, Ali! You're my hero.
A snack box subscription we get had items from Thailand this month, so I snuck a few little Coconut Roll with Black Sesame Seeds from that in the bottom of my picture today. :)
Today's tea is nice. It might be better sweeter, but that's true for many flavored teas for me.
Good evening all! I’ve been enjoying Thai tea brewed strong, adding sweetened condensed milk, and iced! It’s such a decadent treat! So glad it’s the weekend-and a holiday weekend at that!
I have this tea in my stash so I had some today. It's tasty. I'm going to try it as an iced latte next time. Sounds yummy.
BTW I never finished yesterday's tea and tried it cold this morning. MUCH better!
Happy birthday Stephanie! And best wishes Julie!
It's not bad. Wish I could try it cold.
Would be better if there was less of a coconut flavor.
That’s so funny because in an earlier post, I was saying that I didn’t taste enough coconut and would add more if I had it again 😆. Either it’s a difference in distribution in each of our packets or it’s a difference in our preferences!
Got a big score at work! We had leftover oranges from making zest and I got to take some home! I'll be enjoying fresh orange juice with breakfast tomorrow
You are so lucky! Do you work at a bakery?
A tea shop. Some
of our blends uses citrus peels.
Happy birthday Stephanie
Hey, Jim, how are you doing today?
Hangin’ in just fine. Managing the pain well and getting better everyday with the scooter. Got two more August teas to review.
Glad things are going well, that’s not an easy surgery or recovery.
Happy Birthday Stephanie! I hope you've had a great day!
What is everyone doing to celebrate July 4th?
We have tickets for…….THE DODGER GAME, complete with fireworks!
Going to the Dells!
I work in the morning...but will grill and chill in the evening.
Stay home and watch fireworks from our backyard (why pay $20 parking fee for a closer look at the lake).
This tea is smooth and tropical. Luv it. I added coconut milk and a little honey.
I’m so glad I read some reviews about tomorrow’s tea - Dewy Cherry. A number of people said they liked it better cold-brewed, so I set it up in a 1/2 pint jar and put it in the fridge before we left for the Dodger game. I’m looking forward to trying it tomorrow.
Thanks for the idea. I was wondering which way I should brew it.
Happy Birthday Stephanie 🎉🎂🫖🧁🎈
Happy Birthday Stephanie!
Has anyone tried the Ginger Peach Oolong? I saw Jeff’s review of Peach Oolong. I was disappointed in the peach ginger black tea blend we had recently and wondered if anyone is able to comment on the two of them. Maybe those flavors just aren’t for me.
I just found out that the cards page has a recent activity bar at the bottom, but I normally can't see it. I had to maximize my browser and zoom to 90% or less before it showed up. It's the same in Firefox and Chrome. I guess this explains why I couldn't drag cards down as far as I wanted.
Sipping some decaf blueberry today! This is my first month not doing the Communitea box since February of this year, so it feels really odd not to have it.. but I need to catch up on some missed tea packets.. 😅 hoping to jump back in for August or September at the latest!
@Michael Carpenter I’m drinking a blueberry cocktail 😀
Happy birthday, Joan! 🎂🎉🎈🎁🫖
Happy birthday Joan
Happy Birthday Joan🥳
Happy birthday,Stephanie! 🎂🎉🎈🎁🫖
Good evening all! Long day of finishing up the retreat, a little hike and then traveling. Looking forward to sleeping in my own bed! Today’s tea was good.
Good evening everyone! Crazy storms here at the beach, so I'm settling in to listen to the rain and wind. 💨
Went to Progressive Field to watch the Cleveland Guardians' Baseball game - however, the rain started, and wouldn't stop! After two $1 dollar hot dogs, and two $2 dollar beers, we left. Will return tomorrow afternoon for the rescheduled game. We could sure use the rain!
I found an older communitea packet in my purse and all the printing rubbed off of it? I'm going to make it and hopefully guess what tea it is?
It's fuzzy navel. It has to be fuzzy navel.
this was a very yummy tea! great chilled too. loved the blend of coconut, a hint of spice and smoothing vanilla.
G’night everyone! I hope it was a wonderful tea day for everyone.
