Fresh mango pieces, apple, and hibiscus flowers come together for a tangy, fruity tropical blend. Deep, rosy red cup with a juicy texture and sweet, soft mango finish. Completely caffeine-free and no sugar or other sweeteners. Summertime calls...
I REALLY should be saving this pair of dragons for the next time Dragonfruit Dream pops up! But they were too cute not to share! Enjoy my new favorite beasties, the Dragonfruit Dragons!!!
I hope the sad face disappears soon. I was trying to hit the cool glasses emoji. Your dragons are cute.
I don't see a sad face on my end if that helps!! And thank you <3
Ali, they are very exotic, perfect for this summery beverage 🍷
Thank you! I had so much fun making them!
Oh, I love dragonfruit! These might be my favorite dragons you've ever posted, Ali! <3 <3 <3
They're definitely a new favorite of mine as well! I think I want to make them "Made to Order" <3 I just have to order more pink clay first. That way anyone who wants one can have one etc!
I agree! They are adorable! I like that their wing pattern matches the inside of a dragonfruit; it makes them instantly recognizable.
That clay is new! It has black and white spots, and then I added a few extra spots with paint just to make it pop <3
The rich red color made the sweet taste seem like a treat.
Hello, dear tea friends. Happy World Brain Day! The picture I posted (which sadly ended up a bit cropped) shows one way in which I try to keep my brain cells firing. I have noticed that in the past 2 years since I retired, my brain doesn’t seem to process things as fast as it did when I was working. I also play Wordscapes daily. What games do you play to keep your brain cells firing?
Wordle and sudoku
Wordle and 2048
Well, 2048 is a new one on me, G P! I had to look it up. They call it a video game - does that mean you play it on the TV?
Wordle, and old-school crosswords (but not NYT - those are too hard and I like to use pen lol)
Old-school crosswords are a great idea. Yeah, I’m afraid I would be using a pencil and a big eraser! I have looked at the NYT puzzles before and I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to complete one. I’ve been to graduate school and have written tons of professional papers but that might make me feel stupid. My sister loves to do them - guess she’s either smarter than me or she has trained her brain for many years….or both!
Kristen, I enjoy crosswords sometimes, too. Another one I really enjoy even though it's fairly simple is word search.
Kristen, I do the NYT ones (I have a book of them) definitely not in pen and boy, are they challenging!
I play 5 different wordle games and a zen tile game daily!
Ever the overachiever! I mean that as a compliment. You inspire me in so many ways! I had always hated polka dot prints until I joined Communitea but now I kinda like them and even got some adorable polka dot shoes for my daughter 😊
I love word games! Any sort! But right now, brain is working hard just trying to get through training/certification assessments at new job.
Julie, I would say you are getting plenty of brain exercise at the moment! I hope all the training and certification work is done soon.
Sudoku, Wordle, two-handed Mahjongg, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, read (I know the last two aren't games, but they keep me challenged in different ways), and I continue to teach myself to play my piano
Wow, Mary, that’s awesome - all of it! I would definitely say that doing jigsaw puzzles and reading are great ways to keep the brain cells firing.
I love doing Sudoku.❤️
Puzzles, YES! Love jigsaw puzzles too 😍 And I really need to start practicing piano again but I only have a keyboard and miss the real thing
NYT Crossword Puzzles on Mon, Tue, & Wed. I don’t bother with the other days and these 3 puzzles keep me busy over the course of the work week.
That’s still very impressive!
Wordle, word/number fill-in puzzles, jigsaw puzzles. I've also been learning some new software at work, so that's been helping my brain cells, too.
Anybody have any links to online brain games / word games they enjoy?? I could use something new...besides the solitaire suite I play daily. I had a wordle game I played, but lost it when my old PC died. Have my new computer now....some games would be great! Point me in the right direction please :)
I’ve been playing a Wordle game on iPhone. Not too expensive to get rid of ads thankfully
I play this daily:
These two are twice daily; new puzzle every 12 hours:
I also google search nyt spelling bee, play that for free, and nyt letter boxed.
Planning to brew this overnight, and drink it blended with some rum and coconut cream tomorrow 😀
It definitely needs a little something extra. That sounds amazing! 🤩
G, Happy FriYAY! Enjoy!
Rum and coconut... You're speaking my language, G! Yummmm!!!
Michelle McGill, your tropical scene looks so inviting with the iced mango to sip. Sit with your feet up and enjoy your tropical holiday.
Paula, I think that is a lovely idea. Now if I could just figure out how to get the fragrence of the surf... I can get the echo dot to play the sounds of the surf but she hasn't quite captured the aroma features yet, lol. Have a wonderful Friday.
Michelle, your artwork has taken me away to Kokomo.
Michelle, it’s getting to the point where I cannot tell what parts are 3D props and what parts are 2D art! Amazing!
Happy Mango day!
🥭🥭🥭 Valerie, such a pretty photo today, of course they always are! But I particularly love the arrangement of colors and patterns tonight. I hope you have a wonderful Friday 🫖🪴
I've decided I want to drink more iced tea during the summer (read: for survival I can't impose heat on the situation 😂) so I bought 12 mason jars and have tea steeping overnight! Should keep me well hydrated and maybe I'll get through some of my tea stash!! Having 12 kinds of tea brewing at one time is normal, right? 😂😂😂
I generally have 5-8 brewing at all times. Hubs constantly complains about "too much tea" in the fridge
Addison, absolutely! I think most days I drink at least a dozen glasses of tea and they're not all the same. Variety is the spice of life!
That sounds like a great idea but I don’t have that kind of room in my fridge. Are they quart sized? I do like using the 1/2 pint and pint-sized jars for the daily teas or for a tea my husband doesn’t like as much as do I.
I brew 32oz every night. It’s heating up in Southern California!!!
Yes it is - I’m right there with you!
Yup, I'm a roastin' here in the High Desert of Southern California. 🥵🥵 At least I am not stuck in the Low Desert! Small blessings. 😇
We are in Southern California too, approximately halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs - Riverside! We all feel each others’ pain!
I have an army of mugs coldbrewing at all times. 🖤💜🖤
We have four coldbrew pitchers in our fridge.....and now that my teenager is drinking it too I'm considering adding 2 more. We go through a lot of tea!
Making iced tea is a great plan for operation DDTS 😉
Addison, we have two cold brew pitchers in our fridge all summer.
Totally normal, @Addison! I want to see a picture of all those jars! 📸
Thank you, I was sure it was! 😂😛 I'll take one tomorrow and use it soon!! 😁😁😁❤️
Night tea people!
have sweet dreams and a wonderful day when you wake up!
This one would be delicious iced!
Janae, it is!! I think this one's going in the order basket.
Showing off today's tea haul. Tins are a test of the new "Sunny Days" tea blends I created in honor of my obvious Sesame Street obsession. All but two of the packets were freebies from trading cards.
Nice summer teas!
Yup, I'll be making 'em iced to battle this heat
Hope you all had a great day today! ;u;
Sharon, that’s a great tea haul you’ve got there!
Paula, that’s a gorgeous hibiscus!
Wow! That is gorgeous.
Sabby hanging out, 101 days till Halloween 🎃
Age, that is perfect lighting to show off her silky fur coat! Sweet dreams to both of you.
Thank you Michelle 💜🥰💜🐈⬛💜
Age, great shot of Sabby! You can see so many details of her beautiful, sweet face. I love their paws in photos too. She’s a doll!
Thank you Shelly 💜 she says meow and sends kitty kisses💜🐈⬛💜
Fell asleep but woke up to say good night, tea friends.. Have a terrific Friday, it's almost the weekend!
Another important aspect of World Brain Day is early stroke recognition and quick access to emergency care. The acronym is FAST. F - Face - look for facial droop. A - Arms - look for weakness in an arm or leg and/or dragging of a foot all on the same side of the body. S - Speech - listen for slurred speech or difficulty finding words. T - Time - Call 911 ASAP. Getting the person to the hospital fast will allow the doctors to give a clot busting drug if it’s not a brain bleed but only if it’s within a short time of onset of symptoms. If it’s a brain bleed, the person might need surgery quickly. In either case, an MRI will be needed immediately. Don’t wait to try to figure it out - no one will think you are stupid for calling right away. Remember - FAST!!!
My friends that I play darts with three of the couples are on vacation. One set is in Hawaii, another is in Palm Springs, and the third is in Vegas. Well we all got a text yesterday from the wife of the couple in Vegas. She was at the ER her husband has had a stroke! :( I have my bag packed and I’m on stand by to drive to Vegas if she needs me or wants me to bring her kids (they are all in there 20’s the youngest just turned 20) last I heard he was gaining back strength in arm and legs but still can’t talk and has not facial strength. 😢
Great advice, Jan. Quick response is key.
Fast response is so important, and so much recovery happens within the first few days, and first three months, so do not panic, embrace any and all therapies offered
I've had a stroke back but thankfully it happened at the hospital (as a result of surgery) so they were able to help me immediately. I still have impaired vision in my right eye as a result, and some lingering brain stuff. Like I really struggle to do math in my head now such as calculating a tip at a restaurant, whereas prior to my stroke it was super easy. It was in 2017 so I was in my early 40s and the doctors said my relatively young age helped me get better quicker.
Such great advice, Jan. Stroke is one of the main reasons I am such a advocate for mental health and taking care of your brain. I have a few strokes in my family history. My grandma died from one when I was 10 and my mom had a stroke in 2004. She was only 45. It paralyzed her entire left side and she had to stay in a recovery center for a month. She was able to gain movement back in her left leg, so she can still walk (rather slowly, and she has to wear a brace). But she never gained movement back in her left arm, so she has to do everything one handed and occasionally needs assistance. I've been her caretaker since 2006, after my stepdad passed.
Michelle M, I love your sunset painting, and I want to go there NOW! And yes, I will take my Adagio teas with me - especially the ones that have tropical fruits and coconut!
I wish I had the time and money to hop on the boat and go over to Catalina for a few days. That's about as close to tropical
as I am likely to get! Until then I'll just keep painting those idyl places. Hope you have a wonderful day, Jan! Dream of surf and sea and gentle breezes.
Catalina sounds like a perfect place, although I think it’s pretty crowded in the summer. We have gone twice, but it was just before the summer rush hit. I’ll be very happy to admire your paintings for now.
I just can not get cool. I am so hot!!! Between summer and just getting older! I am so uncomfortable. So the last thing I want is a hot cup of tea! So I might be doing iced teas for a while!! 😂 Luckily this makes a nice iced tea!! 💕
Same. 😟 Our AC just can't keep up with this heat.
I make about 90% of my teas Iced this time of year
Tiffany, I have the same problem. Going through the 'change' in my 50s reset my thermostat permanently. I have no tolerance for heat. Our aging house can't take it either; the poor AC unit works hard just to keep it below 85 degrees inside on days like today when its 104 degrees outside. While I still hot brew the tea, it goes straight over tumblers full of ice...ice is my friend!
This tea sounds like it would be a wonderful iced tea but unfortunately mango means I won't be able to drink it 🥲 my husband will be more than happy to sample it though, so at least he'll get to enjoy it! Good night and happy weekend to everyone!
Another hot day ahead. I'm supposed to go to a minor league baseball game tonight, but it will depend on the weather!
Good morning, everyone. Happy Friday! I overslept a little today, so I'm running a little late. I just wanted to stop by to say hello and wish you all a wonderful day. God bless...
Happy Friday, Marlicia. Continued prayers for Tahlia.
Good morning, Shelly. Happy Friday to you. 😇 Thank you for your continued prayers. We very much appreciate them. God bless and enjoy your day!
Have a great day marlicia!
Thank you, Julie. I'm doing my best, and Woodie's Candy Bar Chai is helping a lot with that. 😉😇🫖🍫 I hope your day is going super well. God bless...
Good morning Happy Friday.
Hi Sue! Great photo of another stunning quilt! I hope you have a fantastic day!
Good morning, Sue! Do you quilt? (I saw Shelly's comment below, LOL) Now I need to check out your picture as soon as I have a little free time. God bless and have a wonderful Friday. EDIT: Ooh, I just saw the picture. It is beautiful. I wish I could quilt, but I'm scared of my sewing machine, LOL. God bless...
Sue makes beautiful quilts (perhaps Nancy will post a photo one day of the one her sister posted a while back) If I remember correctly it was going to be a gift and it was truly beautiful and mystical!
Good morning, all. I was supposed to do laundry and attempt to work today... So far laundry has been a no... I feel so bad about not working and I am having a lot of inner conflict. Worst case scenario, I'll just settle for some tea this morning. 😊
Cassidy, rest and be kind to yourself so your body can heal. Sip some tea and consider yourself hugged.
Thank you so much! I definitely needed a hug. ❤️
Cassidy, more ((hugs)) from me. When I get sick I always feel like I want my mama, even at my age. We all need comforting.
Rest so can recuperate faster! ((Hugs))
*hugs* Thank you so much!
I understand where you are coming from with feeling guilty but it is so important to rest and take care of yourself. You will recover quicker and your health is important. Sending positive vibes and well wishes your way.
Age, your photo of Sabby made me smile this morning. Such a cute little fur baby. I love her eyes.
Thank you Mary💜🐈⬛💜 Sabby sends nuzzles and kitty kisses to you💜🥰💜
Good morning and happy Friday all! I put today’s tea in the refrigerator last night so I will try it later on. This morning I am drinking Irish Breakfast.
This is premature, but I can’t hold it in! I got the life changing job that I applied for 🤩 I’m waiting for my contract and transfer date! Those who prayed, sent encouragement, and wished me luck, thank you! It matters that you’re all out in the world spreading your kindness and love around 😘
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Yay!!!! 🎇🎇🎈🎈🤡🎉😊🥰😁🎁🎈🦈(And a shark on the end just because!) I bet you are way excited!!! So happy for you!
Julie, are you still loving your new job? It is so exciting to know our CT family members are enjoying professional and personal joy; and for those who need some, I'm sending out prayers and positivity!
Shelly, I could not be happier for you. Great news...made my day. Congratulations.
That's fantastic news. I'm so happy for you. Congratulations!
That’s great news! Congratulations Shelly!
Yay!!! Congratulations Shelly💜🥰💜
Shelly, congratulations! I hope you are blessed with loving what you'll be doing; work is so much better when it is fulfilling. Will you need to relocate?
Michelle, no relocating, unless you count working from home instead of driving to the hospital. Yay!! It's a big change, but I'm ready!
I’m so happy for you, Shelly! Congratulations 🎉🎉🎉🎉
Congrats!!! So excited for you.
Good morning everyone!!!
For world brain day, let’s share some of our favorite time waster games we claim, help our brain, yeah, sure, that is why I play them! I like big fish games, though I have not done one in a while, and was into Word Villa on my phone (think fill in the blanks crosswords with a letter bank meets home improvement meets YA novel).
Solitaire. So much solitaire. All the solitaire.
Play time! It is a classic game that is still played for a reason! I played a tiki themed one a bit ago :)
I play a game called Design Home a lot. I design furniture for a living, so I started playing to try to improve my "designer eye" I guess you could say. But now I'm hooked. LOL
They suck you in!
I love Lily's Garden, solitaire, Happy Color coloring app, and doing sudokus
The ads for Lily's Garden are nothing like the game! I enjoyed that one a while ago, may have to play some more :)
Solitaire. When I went on retreat I didn’t play at all. When I got home the first time I felt the urge to play it, I deleted the app. I only feel the wish to play about once a week now. I find something else to do.
Fun fact. Solitaire was originally installed on the first home pc’s as a subtle way to teach people proper mouse clicks!
Back years ago, I loved the Hoyle Card Games and Hoyle Board Games computer games. I set all the characters to be smart mouths and had a blast! We had the Kids Games one too and I played a lot of Chutes and Ladders along with my son. A couple years ago I went hunting to get those programs back, but they aren't the same anymore. No lippy bear or space alien, etc. Still wish I had those games back! Now I have a solitaire game from Microsoft and Solitaire Deluxe 2, plus a time waster I've been playing for years Tapped Out (Simpsons game) from EA. I love word games -- will have to look up some you have listed and download some :) I get attached to certain games and then really miss them when they are gone. I still miss Elf Bowling! ha ha (I seriously need some new PC games!)
Elf bowling was awesome, my kids loved that one. 😂
Disney emoji blitz.spend way too much time playing that one.
Ok. Time to pack up my pop tarts and head out to an all day meeting! Will not be on tea talk today because of said meeting 🥲. But as much as I’m anxious about being in person, I’m excited to see my fellow coaches again!
The pop tarts look like they turned out great.
They turned out pretty tasty and everyone was impressed I made my own!!
Thise pop tarts look amazing!!!💜🥰💜
Look at those babies! I hope you enjoyed them!
I gotta pack my bag for my niece's wedding tomorrow. I'll be in the Dayton, OH area. Does anyone know of a good tea room near there?
Good morning & happy Friday!!
Steffi - I love your tea pot!
Good morning! How is it Friday already? I'm drinking White Tangerine today and I am meh about that one as much as I was meh about the tea y'all are drinking today. My tea loving son disagrees and the mango tea is his favorite.
Got todays tea in a glass catching the sun’s rays this morning . Will plop some ice in later today to have with lunch.
Good morning and happy Friday!
No one made a guess at this last night. I probably posted it too late, so here it is again - Since Karen is vacationing in my stomping grounds (Finger Lakes), how about a little FL trivia? Which screenwriter, radio and television narrator and producer lived on Cayuga Lake? Hint - think Cayuga Productions....
We have a winner🏆!
I have to pick up my mother from the hospital in OKC. She had stomach surgery today.
Andrea, prayers sent for an uneventful and speedy recovery for your mom. You are so kind to be there to help.
Mango Melange Morn, Friends! ~
I made today's tea--iced, and enjoyed it, yesterday, at work. This morning I made a cup of my "FogOut!" Blend which I am happy how that turned out (SSP.) I wanted to do something different since there are many Fog blends. So, I added just a scooch of Butterscotch. That might be sacrilege..But I quite enjoyed. Also for my 2nd cup, Enjoying Woodie's 'Orange-Pumpkin-Creme,' called "Pumpkin Face." Unique and Delish & The art is adorable! Awesome blendage, as always Woodie!
I can attest that his Halloween Cat blend is also very very tasty! And a Count Dracula blend that looks like it isn't available at the moment. I have tins of both! :) Butterscotch with Earl Grey sounds wonderful!!!
Thanks, Julie! I am delighted with the two vibes together of EG and Butterscotch. I shall deffo try the Hallowe'en Cat blend! 🎃🐈⬛️🦇🧛♀️
I found my butterscotch and my tin of earl grey lavendar and I'm trying it! Also put Fog Out on my wishlist!
Lost my chat streak yesterday whoops. Also no sunset last night, just an unending wall of fog, so I'd like to introduce you to some of the friendly locals instead.
Hello tea fronds! 🪴❤️ We had an Internet outage ALL day yesterday in my town. I am just now able to post my tea picture. It was such a strange feeling to go to my phone and it not connect! No asking Google anything! We ended up going to Walmart to get out a little (everyone else had the same idea). Businesses were only able to accept cash! It was kind of nice without internet. We made the best of it. We played family games and ended up having a great day without video games and Netflix. Lol! ☺️
That is so scary! I wouldn't have survived. 🤣
I am really enjoying today's tea! It seems to be relieving some of the pressure in my stomach, which is awesome. 😊 No idea why it would do that though. Hahaha! Also, still keeping my eyes peeled for the September box... 👀
Good morning! Waiting out some rain before doing some hiking. Started the day with some vanilla oolong. Looking forward to today's tea later on. Hope everyone has a nice day!
Hmmmm, wondering will the Sept communiTEA be up soon? I've got a cart ready to go.
Available now :)
Hi! If someone is attending the tea talk, can you ask about the dates for upcoming specials? :) I MAY be able to hop on!
I'm going to be there -- finally have a camera and a mic! Woot! :) Finally!
I try not to give away dates per se, but you know us! Offers are frequent ;)
As I NOW see there is a special offer TODAY! :)
Haha! I didn't even check the homepage yet
CommuniTEA-ers here inspired me to infuse lemonade (sometimes limeade) this summer with fruity herbal tea blends. This time I tried infusing lemonade with gyokuro. Japan may be frowning upon me for doing this with precious gyokuro, but it’s pretty darn good!
TRADE: I'm looking for some new cards - prefer Green, Herbal, Chai, Fruity. I have Maple Crème Oolong, Citron Green, and Cancer card to trade. Update: thanks Michele for the Bonita!
Hey, Sharon, anything I have that is not locked is up for trade. If you see something you like, feel free to make me an offer. I only request no turmeric. 😇 God bless...
Sharon, I know my Mama has lots of herbals, honeybush and roobios to trade, if you see anything send her an offer💜🥰💜
Weeeeeeeeee made it to Friday.
I have piles of cards to trade... make me an offer if you see something you want!
Good morning. What teas are you looking to get in return? I have a bunch too.
I don't really have any in mind. Just looking to pass them on to folks who will enjoy them!
Also happy Friday :)
Ugh, so, instead of working today, I have been filling out medical leave paperwork. @_@ My COVID brain doesn't want to function. This is SO hard, and it really shouldn't be. :(
Sending extra strength your way. I hope you start feeling better
Thank you so much! I am hoping this weekend is good to me and maybe I can just get better and come back Monday. :) That is my real honest hope right now.
TRADES: I have portion size cards for: White peach, white blueberry x 2, Taurus, Berry Blast, peach (black), Mango (black) x 2. I can't have ginseng, chamomile, or mate due to allergies, and I don't like rose in tea. Other than that, make me an offer!
I sent an offer! If the Maple Creme Oolong isn't to your taste, feel free to take a look at the other cards I have available to trade 🥰
Accepted! Thank you!
Just sent you an offer, Julie!
Accepted! Thank you -- being trying to get four of that darjeeling for a long time! :) Yay!!
Not much mango flavor. I tasted apple and hibiscus.
yeah I never taste much mango either. Always an ok tea, but more apple tasting to me too.
Lauren, your tea looks so refreshing. I want to step into the photo for a sip.
I had Earl Grey Lavender with breakfast and hubby had Mambo. I am currently sipping Shincha Gyokuro (Masters).
Michelle, I love the little squirrel taking advantage of Gladys's spills! Too cute. I love your humor.
Thanks, he is hiding in the grass, you have eagle eyes!
Oof! I am so glad I am two weeks ahead in class because the week I am on now is brutal! Saint Anselm is very difficult to read. It isn't because of unfamiliar vocabulary but it is because of his over repetitiveness and redundancy within a single sentence. It has taken half an hour to read 3 pages.
Isn't he one of Doctors of the Church, Jennifer? I don't know a whole lot about him. Does he use circular logic? I'll have to look him up, once I have some time. God bless...
I’ll bet he is. I recall some wonderful teachings that I have read. Small pieces. Nothing too circular.
I have heard that! I hope you get through it soon!
Heather, give Farmer Fox a boop for me. I'm sure he is working hard to keep all the farm animals in line.
I'll be glad to do so! And he is doing so, I've seen the chicken fly by a few times this afternoon already.
Alaine, I am so sorry to hear you have Covid. Sending prayers for a speedy and complete recovery. Did the kitten get it too?
lol -- thanks, Mary. He gave it to me. His mother wasn't feeling well, so I was watching him so he wouldn't get sick. Too late. He was pretty miserable yesterday, but seems almost normal today.
I pray you will recover that quickly.
I hope you get better soon Alaine!
Feel better soon Alaine!
I hope you feel better soon, Alaine
Alaine, I hope everyone heals quickly! Sending love and light! Rest and hydrate ❤️
Glad naked kitten is feeling better. I hope you and mom get well soon too!
sending love ...feel better soon!
Feel better, Alaine!
Sending healing vibes to you and your family.
Feel better Alaine💜🥰💜 hope you all make a quick recovery💜
Wishing you a speedy recovery, Alaine!
Today's baking wasn't as delicious as usual. I made hardtack for research purposes. The next dnd character I'm playing carries a hilarious amount of it, so I had to know what it tastes like. Not bad, needs to be soaked in strong tea first or I'm scared I'll break my teeth.
My sister learned to make that from a recipe in a history textbook when we were little! It's not terrible, but the texture is potentially dangerous lol.
What a happy coincidence... I set up mango black tea to cold brew in the fridge last night! So I can celebrate mango day too! That homepage offer looks mighty tempting since mango is one of my fave iced tea flavors... ;)
Hey all! Just wanted to let you know this call to action from Tea Talk! We're going to start creating the 2023 calendar on Fridays in starting in August. So start collecting your ideas/general feedback for communiTEA to make it better, recommendations for blends you'd like to see, and what teas can help us celebrate holidays :)
I think blends created by the communitea should be featured every Friday, like the Scooby-Doo ones or long time members. This would be fun and I am always so excited to try blends made by tea fronds💜🥰💜 it always seems extra special!💜
Age, genius idea!
Love this idea!!!
I'm so there! Always bummed when I don't get to at least pop in, but I wanted to enjoy some lake swimming with a friend today, while she had some getaway time. And, whadda heat wave we're in, phew! Much needed refreshment...🏊♀️🏞 Also, Great idea, Age! "Friend Blend Fridays"
Yes!!!! Twyla I'm going to repost this again till Monday so everyone can see it and it should absolutely be called Friend Blend Friday's!! I love that💜🥰💜
Sorry again for being so distracted and absent for a while during this Tea Talk. 😬 I missed Wednesday and most of yesterday from work due to home repair action, but hey we have a much better sink, garbage disposal, and dishwasher now! 😎
Good day mango people
Mango day, back at you Debbie! I hope you're enjoying the mango herbal tea this Friday.
I don’t have a darn thing to say today, except I may wind up missing our usual Friday Afternoon Music Club, when we get our one beer of the week. Just not feeling well again— and also it’s accordion music!
... is that why you need the beer? (fingers crossed there are no accordion players here to offend!)
September box is now available!
I legit just found it and put it in my cart to round out the promo before coming here to catch up on a full day missed!!!
Thank you for mentioning the promo, too! I visited the home page to catch that.❤️🥭
First thing I checked before chat just now! Into the cart. 🥰
Someone today told me they wished they were as dedicated to something as I was to tea. So I sent them the free friend promo. 🤣
One of us. One of us🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
Prepare to be assimilated. Resistance is futile. Tea.
Hi my tea friends hope your have a great day!🫖☕️❤️🐈⬛
Hi Linda and Pretty Violet 💜 I hope you are staying cool today!
Does anyone taste mango from this?
There's no mango flavor in mine. It's a very weak, slightly tart, fruity flavor. I cold brewed mine and I think I used too much water.
Same, but I liked it!
Nope. But it was still good. :)
Hello, everyone. I hope you're all doing well. I've got a quick question for you. Is anyone having difficulty moving their cards around, ie; to organize them? I can only move them a little and then they refuse to budge. This has never happened to me before and I'm not sure what to do. (I'm on a desktop computer.) God bless and thank you in advance for any help or suggestions.😇
I have never been able to move mine because I always access Adagio on my iPhone or iPad. I don’t even use a desktop computer anymore, don’t need to. I will have to email Adagio if/when I ever get four-of-a-mind cards!
Yes, sometimes. And then there are times I get them all organized when I get new ones.....and suddenly they are black and still flipped over like new all over again and I have to put them all back again.
Well, it's Friday, so I'm going to say goodnight to you all as I get ready for supper and date night with my husband. Wishing you all a wonderful rest of your day/evening/night and pleasant dreams. God bless and sleep well.
Happy date night, Marlicia!
Hi Ilya! 😄
Twyla, I saw this article and thought of cimi babycat! https://www.upworthy.com/amp/a-family-lost-their-beagle-and-later-that-day-she-came-home-wearing-a-dog-show-ribbon-2657710201
Aww, Elizabeth..that is so awesome, thank you for sharing!
Just made me think of all the adventures cimi had!
I love this story, Elizabeth!
It was so wholesome!!
Most definitely, Elizabeth. Cimi is meowing so much! She is telling us of her adventures.
awwwwwww :) Lovely story!
good evening! hope everyone is alright
How’s your pup, Dog?
doing pretty good! we started giving him some medicinal mushroom supplements to hopefully boost his immune system and the vet gave us a prescription to help with his high t3 and t4 levels
I am SUPER excited for the September box! 🤩 I just placed my order~~!!
Oof! I am glad a) I haven’t placed my order yet and b) that Ilya is an awesome tech wizard and has combined the carts. My dill jar just jumped off the shelf! It would not have been worth it to throw a $1 jar into an empty cart!
Now I’m intrigued. What’s a dill jar and where do you get it for a dollar???
One of the shaker spice jars on selefina. Ilya is a genius and set it up so that you can buy the empty jars, but indicate what spice you are going to fill it with. So even though selefina doesn’t sell dill yet, I can put it in a selefina jar to help make my spice collection more consistent. You can select between the shaker and the pinch jars for $1 each. Unfortunately my dill bit the bullet 😝. You can’t see the link to the jars on mobile (the personalization element doesn’t work well here either), but the link is as the bottom of the desktop selefina page
Okay, I need a reality check because I know sometimes my anxiety gets the best of me... Obviously, I've been sick. And I haven't been working as a result. Some of it has been unpaid because I don't have enough PTO; however, I applied for medical leave which would cover some of that unpaid-ness. I have been texting my 2 supervisors daily to let them know I saw a doctor, I'm working with HR, I filed for medical leave, etc etc. It went from Oh I hope you feel better to Okay and now no responses at all... Now I'm not saying they need to baby me and go Oh poor thing etc etc. And I know every other time they've been very nice people. Could it just be I'm reading the texts the wrong way? Because my gut is telling me they're mad at me and I feel really bad missing work as it is. 😟
You should never feel bad for missing work when you are sick. We have the fundamental right to be sick and exist in human bodies.
Thank you so much! You are so right, but I struggle with thinking about my own well-being sometimes. Thank you! ❤️
My guess is they are not mad. Being sick can affect your mood. Maybe you’re feeling bad and worrying too much because you’re not feeling well? I get like that sometimes.
You are so right! I definitely do that too. And sometimes I get so wrapped up in my own anxiety that I literally need a reality check, like right now. Thank you so much! 😃
“Deep thoughts”: Why is it called jump-roping instead of rope-jumping?
I believe the actual item is named "jump-rope" so "jump-roping" is the verb. Kind of like Google and Googling. :D
Oh alright, I can accept that explanation! 🙂
Good Evening Everyone! Hi Tea Pals! I hope all tea land is enjoying the tea of the day this Friday.
Hi Woodie! Wishing you a glorious, tea-filled weekend.
Ugh, Internet's been not good for five days, and totally couldn't get in reliably for three. Lost my chat streak; not that it was that long, but still. As for today's tea.... I was too hibiscus'd out by this one.
Happy Friday night! Enjoy some fun.
Nancy, Harley looks totally chilled out! Our dogs really have great lives, don’t they?
He really enjoys being at work with me. I'm happy for the company and knowing he's not stuck at home alone while I work.
Steffi, i love your teapot! Where do you find these treasures?
I'm exhausted. I have a vacation from work scheduled in a few weeks but I;m ready for it now.
I like it
Pretty good tea. Love the mango flavor!
Hello everyone! Had a fun time at the tea room today, but I'm super sleepy.
I’m kinda proud of the pic I submitted today…
What art style is that? Looks like stippling, from my limited art knowledge
I like how you blended the colors. Looks look a mango!
As you should be! It is beautiful!
Decided to try a 50/50 split of strawberry banana split and watermelon cooler for my iced tea tomorrow. I’m excited about this blend!
That sounds so good!
oooh, let us know how that turns out!!
Wow, I'm really late today, but I haven't run out of time yet, so I can keep my streaks going. :) I was dealing with some other stuff earlier and it's finally settled down, so I'm making the tea now and will have a photo up soon.
Glad you made it!
The tea tastes OK. More tart than I expected for mango though.
I tuned in to a live show tonight that was debuting at 9 PM EST. Promptly at 9 PM, the channel shut off, just complete darkness. So thousands of us who tuned it for their premiere took to social media and have been sharing our thoughts and feelings and little scenes we're seeing flash on the TV. 99% of the time, the TV is not the scheduled program and often goes dark or goes to a commercial featuring the band KISS. Not only have people started a "Ban KISS" movement, but some poor lady fell and people got screenshots of it and have posted asking if she's okay. *sigh* So much for a live show. 🤣
It's called On Patrol Live. 😊 Also, some people are now trying to crash a website called nuts.com just out of boredom. 🤣 So far the website hasn't crashed. 😝
I was looking through blends and someone had made a blend entitled, ''Fruitopia"....what a glorious flashback Friday that was to remember those beverages, *from the day.* So, I hadda use that word in my review today. As Mango Melange is more Fruitopian Fun than Mainly Mango. 😜🍍🍉🍓🥭
Good night everyone. Hope you have a nice weekend.
Julia, I hope you had a good day today. Have a good night sleep my friend.
Love the tart and fruity taste of this tea despite the missing mango taste in my CT packet again this year.
