Good night and good morning tea peeps! Hoping everyone has a blessed day!
Good night!! Hope everyone has a good Thursday 🌙
Hope tomorrow is better than today was. Sleep well tea peeps.
Vickie, I hope your day is better, too! Mine is just going to be very hot🥵🥵🥵. I was kind to my air conditioner today and changed its filter, and it thanked me by dying. Now I have to wait on the Home Warranty company to schedule a repair person. It usually takes a couple days. I'm ready to move to Alaska!
Oh Michelle, I hope the repairman gets there sooner rather than later. You may have to crawl into your fridge. I would be a hot mess if ours broke down. It has been so miserably hot this year. Sending virtual ice cubes your way. 🧊🧊🧊
Vickie, sorry to hear yesterday was rough. Hopefully today will go smoother for you. Sending positives vibes and a hug your way.
my cousin from Arizona is out here visiting for her birthday. And we spent two days. At Disneyland. I got myself a few new items. One is this color changing mug. Tomorrow I will show what it looks like when hot.
Eeeeee!!! It’s already awesome, purple, and THAT silhouette looks like Alice so I love it with all of my heart and am quite envious. 😄
It already is pretty, Tiffany. Can’t wait to see a pic of it tomorrow!
Love that mug! Can't wait to see it change. I hope you and your cousin have a great time.
Tiffany, enjoy your visit with your cousin. That is a fun mug!
Good evening, good morning CT! I hope all the tea fronds 🫖🪴🪴🪴 have a great Thursday. Tonight, Ramona Flowers' tea ingredients are sketched although I think I hid the raspberries. I also didn't have any raspberries or pomegranate in the house but some of the unrelated fruit in the house are hiding over on the right. This is a nice light citrusy cup with just a bit of tang from the hibiscus. It was delicious!
It's been a long day so I am going to go say "Hi!" to the Hubs and get ready to go to bed. Good night. Have a great Thurs everyone!
HI, Christine. Have a wonderful night my tea friend.. Take care and dream of teas.
Haven't actually watched the movie, but the description said her hair changes color so I decided to use some Rainbow Dragons for today's tea dragons <3
National Coast Guard Day today!
I think my calendar actually lists it as the Coast Guard's Birthday. Odd to think of a branch of the armed services having a birthday...
True, but they do. 🎂 The Air Force was born (from the Army-Air Corp, 1926-1941, a.k.a. Army Air Force, 1941-1947)
on Sept. 18, 1947.
Happy Thursday, Dorothy! One day closer to FriYAY and vacation for me 😎
Yay! Vacation! Have a great time Shelly.
Oh but for me that means one day closer to ending my vacation….🥲
Happy Thursday Dorothy.
Hiya Sue! Hope you’re doing well. Give Pogi and Shotzy some hugs from me.
Padres game to end a great time in San Diego.
neat picture, Bambi!
Oh how I would love to be at a ballpark...Wrigley Field preferably.
Good night all!!!!! 💤
sweet dreams all!
How is it Thursday already this week flew
Drat. I accidentally voted “meh” when I meant to swipe between photos and chat. Oh well! 😝
Easy to do. The other day I was responding to a sad story and thought I hit the teary-eyed teamoji. It was the laughing one and I was unable to undo it. I felt terrible.
I think you can just hit a different teamoji and it will override the first one. edit: I just tested it; it takes a few seconds, but it does work.
I've done that too. Next time change it right away and wait. It will change in a few seconds, it just has some lag time.
I’m so excited because my tea with the September box is due to be delivered tomorrow. Yay! Good night, all you fine tea people.
Tea delivery day is always such fun! Hubby and puppy are always on hand for the grand opening here. Enjoy!
Hello, and good early morning tea friends. Enjoy your CommuniTEA of the day tea and drink up and cheers to you all. My pic is all about the dog king of himself. 'Peanut' Woodie and I love to spoil Peanut. lol
Peanut is one lucky little pooch and is so adorable.
TMX Monster is giving y'all a sneak peek of the fabric I'll be using to make my next top in today's pic
Oooo very summery!
Vibrant colors! So pretty, Sharon!
Nice! Bright and cheerful just like you Sharon. Looking forward to seeing your new creation.
Sharon, I love orange. I can hardly wait to see the finished garment. You are really making me want to dust off my old sewing machine.
Mary, me too!
Hello tea fronds. 🫖🪴Have a wonderful day!
I was just thinking how “jazzy tea fronds” was a bad autocorrect of ChasiTEA friend, but each day kind of progresses like jazz does, right? 🤔 There’s a simple starting point and others join in, some tangents, some overall themes… maybe I’m thinking about this too much and I don’t like jazz anyway BUT jazzy is a good adjective! 😄
Hi Erin, and my voice recognition always insists you are Aaron! If also wants to change tea fronds to tifrons...what the heck is a Tifron? 😆
Erin that's hilarious. I tried to text ChasiTEA and I get "chairs". I like jazzy tea frond! Much better than chair. Jazzy is a good adjective to describe a CT tea day! There is usually an overall daily theme, but the song changes everyday. Our roots are in fronds and tea time, instead of blues and ragtime!
I love the way you drew comparisons between jazz music and the CommuniTea. It really does work, and it does so very well. You are so clever.
Hi ,ChasiTEA: Thank you and I wish you a wonderful happy Thursday and enjoy your favorite tea.
Thank you Woodie! Happy Anniversary. I just noticed you have a delicious cake in your photo!
Today's tea is so good!!
Hello, Tea Pals! Enjoy adagio tea-land today. My photo is Irishman and my 22nd-anniversary cake, Yahoo! :)

Oooooh spooky Sabby!! 89 days till Halloween 🎃
I can't wait for spooky season to hit the stores. I have a love for gargoyles and the only time I can find them is during Halloween.
It’s already hit the stores here, I love everything Halloween and Fall.
Yes!!!! I found some good stuff today at homegoods🎃
It's getting closer!!!! :)
Happy Anniversary Woodie and Irishman!!!!!💜😘💜
I'm not a huge watermelon as a flavor for tea or kombucha. But, this was really good when I ate a watermelon lollipop at the same time I drank it iced. Update: Apparently my page did not refresh.
I like the combination of watermelon tea with watermelon lollipop...so smart!
Sweet dreams, tea friends and have a wonderful Thursday. Stay cool and drink lots of iced tea!
Hope you have a very nice, cool day too, A!
Have a great day, everyone! ;o;

Paula, it is so pretty!
I love that plant, Paula. You’ve posted a beautiful pic of one. Is this in your garden? I think it needs lots of water and shade, doesn’t it? Is it hard to grow?
I believe that it does need a lot of water and shade. I’m under the impression that it might not be hard to grow if given the right conditions. I found it in a garden center.
Today is the day that I prepare for going to C2E2. So excited!
Allyson, sounds fun! Enjoy!
Hope you will have a great time. We are expecting pics!
I am excited to try this tea! I cold brewed in keeping with my summer CommuniTEA theme 😎 Have a great day!!
Good morning, Susan. Have a wonderful day! God bless...
Good morning, everyone. Happy Thursday. Today is my husband's birthday, and in our house things like that are a whole weekend, so I'll be sporadic here for the next few days. I will try to pop in to say hi, at the very least. 😇😉God bless and have a wonderful day.
Happy Birthday to your husband! May the Dear Lord bless him 😇
Thank you very much, Shelly. I know he appreciates the birthday wishes. God bless...
Good morning Marlicia.Happy birthday to your husband.
Hello, Sue, and thank you very much for your good wishes. I'm certain they are much appreciated. God bless..
Happy birthday to hubs Marlicia! ( I don’t know how but at first it typed Gabby burrito to hubs Marlicia!) 🌯
Dorothy, I have a very independent minded phone, that does things to me like that all the time! And now this is a new phone so I have to train it even more. Phone's and children, they never listen! 🤷♀️
LOL, too funny, Dorothy. I've done that before when my fingers were in the wrong position...who moved the keys over anyway, 😉 Thanks for the smile and for the good wishes. They are much appreciated. God bless...
Sounds like it’s a Mexican restaurant to celebrate! 😉
Happy Birthday to your husband.
Thank you for your good wishes, Carrie. They are much appreciated. God bless...
Happy Birthday to your husband!
Thank you for your good wishes, Ruth. I am sure he will appreciate them. God bless...
Happy birthday to your hubby, Marlicia. Enjoy the festivities, and take time to relax with a cuppa.
Thank you very much, Mary. Everyone is so kind here. I am certain the birthday wishes are much appreciated. God bless...
Happy birthday to your husband!
Thank you very much, for your good wishes, Marjorie. They are very much appreciated. God bless...
Wishing your husband a very Happy Birthday, Marlicia!
Thank you very much, Jan. Birthday wishes are always much appreciated. God bless...
Happy Birthday to your husband, Marlicia! I hope you both have a fantastic weekend.
Oh, thank you, Tiffany. Your good wishes are very much appreciated. We have a few quiet little things planned both as a family and as a couple. God bless...
Happy birthday to your hubby!
Thank you very much, Christine, for your good wishes. They are much appreciated. God bless...
Wishing your husband a Happy Birthday and both of you lovely weekend of celebrating.

Happy birthday wishes to your husband, Marlicia!
Happy Birthday to your husband, Marlicia! have a fun weekend celebrating!
Good morning, Shelly! Happy Thursday! I hope your day is off to a great start and that it is awesome! God bless...😇🫖🌞
Hi Marlicia! I hope you have a day filled with many blessings and tasty tea 😘
Good evening, Shelly. It's been busy. We're just gearing up for the birthday weekend, LOL. I had a lovely cup of Woodie's Rudolph. Yummy. I hope your day is going well and that you are able to get in a good cuppa or two. God bless...
Happy Thursday to you and happy birthday to your husband, I hope the birthday celebrations that last all weekend are a blessing and a joy🎂🍰🧁🫖🪴🪴.
Thank you, Michelle, and I hope your Thursday is going well for you also. They are truly a blessing a lots of fun. Being over a few days, they don't get so overwhelming. 😉😇God bless...
Good morning, hope you have a happy and healthy day.
Good morning, Sue. Cool photo of Shotzy. I really like the lampshade, too. It has the Tiffany vibe in a textile way 💚
Morning Sue, you too!
Good morning Sue! Hope your day is happy and healthy as well, full of peace and tea.
I hope your day is splendid too, Sue!
Shotzy looks like she's ready to pounce on something. She's looking the wrong way for the frogs though.
Good morning all! Today’s tea is very tasty once I added honey. It’s amazing how dramatic the difference is with some teas. My photo is of my brand new Ingenuitea being used for the first time. Do people really put this in the dishwasher as the box indicates you can? How would it fit?
I put my IngenuiTea I'm the dishwasher at least once every two weeks. Mine looks slightly different than yours, so it must be an older model. The lid comes off pretty easily as you lift it high. The filter pops out from the inside. (It's pretty hard the first time, but gets easier. Try to push it to the side slightly to get it to release.) Then the bottom that pushes up when it's on a mug will pull out from the bottom. The rubber gasket will also come out if it's gunky.
I haven’t even used mine because I’m afraid of not being able to clean it. I don’t own a dishwasher and Ingenuitea looks like a cleaning nightmare. I can’t figure out how to take the cup apart to clean around the filter, but I’ll take another crack at it after reading Rebecca’s comments.
It’s actually not! I have the updated one and school and I’m able to clean it with a paper towel! Every week or so I’ll drag it to a sink for an actual rinse, but I kept it clean and new looking for a whole year with near daily use!
I rinse mine and presto magic! It’s ready to go. I love it so much I purchased the big guy for iced tea.
It’s wonderful. Very little cleaning necessary: dump spent tea, rinse or wipe out little bits, quick water rinse again and done.
I LOVE my three(!) ingenuiTEA(s), especially the elliptical shaped one with the drip tray. Haven’t tried putting it in the dishwasher yet but will do so in the future. The plastic mesh filter might not want to budge at first though it gets much easier!
Good morning everyone!!!
Good morning !
Good Mornin' all.
Good morning, everyone! I'm sleepy again today. 🥱😴💤 Woke up at some point in the middle of the night to mom mopping my floor so I asked her if everything was okay. She told me to go back to sleep. 😳 Moms... 🤣
My dad likes to vacuum the hallways at 11pm 😂 he must get a burst of energy before bed out something. 😂
Hahaha! Maybe he is more of a night person! My mom is most awake and most energetic at night. 😊 But even when I woke up this morning I asked her about her mopping the floor last night and she was just like Uhuh, I mopped the floor. 🤣 *sigh* 😝
Heather, I hope your day is not too crazy. Fox definitely sits cute!
I just love the way he tucks his legs - of course it can make him look completely pathetic too especially if he lowers his ears and pouts…
Heather, that is a very effective strategy to get more treats from mom.
And I am guessing Fox gets what he wants then?? Smart little puppy.
generally he does I fear, though things that are bad for him are a hard no-go. But I will admit to changing my eating habits to not having things that are bad for him - so that I can share with him... such as I don't keep grapes or raisins in the house anymore.
The things we do for our fur babies!
Sue, your guard cat is so adorable. No one is going to sneak in at your house. The quilt you made is beyond beautiful. The recipient is one very lucky lass! You are a treasure.
Michelle, I love Gladys's attitude...if you don't eat it all the calories are all in what is left behind! Works for me.
I mean, just leave a crumb behind, OBvIOUSLy you did not get all of those calories!
🤣 that is, until you back up and bump into something sooner than you think you should have. I'm speaking from personal experience of course. I hope you and Gladys have a great day Michelle.
Meh... More padding for sitting on uncomfortable chairs!
Michelle M, I am not familiar with this Fandom, but your Ramona is adorable. Brings to mind a cousin of mine whose name is Ramona. Your photo of the citrus fruit sent me to the fridge for some orange juice.
Mary I am absolutely addicted to the little Cuties or clementines, depending upon who's selling them. They are so juicy and sweet. Some days I go through two or three of them. I didn't know anything about the fandom either, but Google always informs me of enough to come up with (a hopefully relevant) piece of artwork. Besides, I love the idea of green hair, green and purple my favorite colors.💚 💜 The most daring I get, however, are green nails.💚💜💚💜💚
Ali R, that matcha ice cream looks delicious!
Samantha, doesn't it look yummy! I wish I could have some but am lactose intolerant. I will look for matcha frozen yogurt, which I can have, or may try to make some by mixing my matcha powder with frozen vanilla yogurt. Has anyone else tried this?
Oo, that sounds good. I've never done that but it's worth a try.
Mary, last year my husband bought an ice cream maker for me, and I made some from scratch. It was pretty good. If you can find sheep's milk locally, that would probably be much easier on your stomach. I order sheep's milk yogurt from imperfect Foods and use that as a base for smoothies , I'll have to try it as a frozen yogurt . I use Agave as a sweetener when I make ice cream, and it works rather well.
It was dairy free!!! More for you! :-)
It was super tasty! I try to go to the matcha place once a week and I kept putting off trying it, but yesterday it was just necessary! It is a twist with matcha and vanilla. And a strawberry pocky stick! Somehow I ate it fast enough so it didn't completely melt on the walk back to my office!
Hubby made harvest pancakes for our breakfast today so I had some Cranberry black tea and he had Yunnan Black Snail.
It perfectly fits the movie🤣
Tyrell if we couldn’t find the books/movie for the photo my husband WAS going to fire up the Switch and play!
It was the best I could come up with at the time ha ha ha :)
It really is perfect. 😄
Good morning 🌞
Hello! Good morning tea friends!
After I posted , I realized I had a Medicinal Plants book I could have used. But I had the Edible Flowers close by because of a carrot slaw and rose petals recipe I’m making tonight using Selefina rose petals , of course .
That sounds like an interesting combination...
Enjoying my first CommuniTEA cup in our bungalow room. I had an oolong match stick last night. This is an interesting blend, and it is very pretty in my tea strainer.
Sounds like a lovely location to sip tea! I adore the Oolong matcha sticks!! Enjoy
Good morning, only on super quick. Busy day today. Blessings!
Jennifer, blessings to you. Hopefully you'll have a bit of sip time to relax during your busy day.
;) Part of the busy is making the Boba tea recipe that Red shared with me a few days ago. My supplies arrived yesterday. In another hour and a half, we sip! Sourdough will go in the oven just before then too. :)
Happy chocolate chip cookie day! What kind of cookie texture do you prefer best? Soft, crunchy, or chewy? I am a fan of all three, but I forced to choose, I would go chewy with vanilla oatmilk or crunchy with tea ;). We can emoji vote or answer below. Smiley for soft, heart eyes for crunchy, and sunglasses for chewy!
I gave a sunglasses, but I like all three!!
Michelle, I am like you, I like all textures. But the number one is definitely sunglasses, or chewy! It's more satisfying and it doesn't go quite as quickly. You got to make these things last so you don't eat too many.🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪
All of the above lol
That's such a tough choice! I love all three, but chewy edges with a soft middle are probably my favorite.
Soft all the way!
All three, depending on the type of cookie.
I like soft and chewy myself!
G'morn all! Brewing this tea now. (Ooh, it turned a cool color!) I lol'd when Tyrell said, (when Jim shared the doc of September teas..) 'Jim did you just make that one up?!!' For today's tea title..Teehehe.. Indeed, pretty random--but way Cool fandom tribute!!📚😊 ~Wishing everyone a magickal, lovely, chill, easy-going Thursday!
I don't think he had caught on that was the next line in the movie, but was actually asking him if he made it up... it still worked, rolled with it lol
Good morning everyone! The one day I can sleep in late, I wake up early 😂
Good morning everyone! I'm still looking for one more ti kuan yin card to make a sample, if anyone has one they're willing to trade. :)
It's been awhile since I haven't tried or already sampled the tea of the day, so I went ahead and made my Courage Tea and I'll just have to have a second cup of tea today (darn! 😂)
Addison, such a sacrifice!
This tea sounded like a little bit of everything and even when I put it all in to brew I was a little skeptical with how it was looking but WOW it was really good! I added hibiscus, orange peels, some extra raspberry leaves, and some tupelo honey to mine. My packet mostly had the dried cranberries, I think it was, or raspberries, but didn't have really any of the orange and I didn't see any hibiscus. Anyway, delicious! Great tea! Really surprised me and blew me away! 🤩
Is anyone able to see other people's tea cards? I haven't been able to for the past few days
I've been able to see them, no problem.
The pop up on the right to get to peoples cards disappeared. Put in a request earlier this week to get back. You can get to your friends' cards from you own card page.
Emily, I'm having no problems seeing them.
I'm also unable to see people's cards
Does anyone else keep reading the name of this tea wrong? I either see Ramona's Live Disaster Tea or I skip the word liver entirely and just see "Disaster Tea"?
That's better than me, I kept seeing liver disease! 🙄
Anneke, actually I think I saw it both as live disaster and liver disease. I know I had to read it a couple times, lol.
Good morning, peeps! Heather, thanks so much for the trade! :D
Good morning, everyone! ☀️
Comóradh sásta, Irishman and Woodie ( I sure hope the Google translator is accurate), happy anniversary! 🥂🍰🍰🎊🎉
Bridgette, when you have a minute, will you please help me again to merge my cards? I’ve got 4 Earl Grey Moonlight and 4 Earl Grey Bravo.
Hey Jan! I got your email- I will definitely help as soon as I can. Having some technical issues today, but I should be back on track before the end of the work day :) You can send me the cards and I can combine them on my account if you'd like a faster resolution.
Thanks, Bridgette. No hurry. Is it better to just contact you via email or here? Don’t want to be a nuisance,
I've combined these for you! I would say for account-specific things, the customer service email is best. For site-wide issues, you can drop it here. You're not a nuisance at all :)
Hi kids! Busy morning. Started off finishing a pitcher of cold steeped cream tea - yum. Finally having today's tea. A bit too tart for my tastes but I'm sure others will be all about it. Hope you all have a nice day!
Good Morning my tea friends hope you have a great day! 🫖☕️🐈⬛❤️
Good Morning Age!❤️❤️❤️❤️
Good Morning Sue!🫖☕️🐈⬛❤️💐
Good Morning Shelly!🫖☕️🐈⬛❤️💐
Hi Linda and Pretty Violet 😘💜💚
Got around to trying out the strawberry lemonade. It tastes alright, just kind of weak. It's a building block tea. With an add in of some fresh basil and a dash of honey, it became a much more refreshing summer treat.
Red, that sounds like a good adjustment. I have to try that when I get my sample. I love Tulsi basil tea.
Sweet basil is my go to for adding to iced teas. I'll have to try Tulsi at some time too.
It sounds so good! I have a batch cold brewing in my fridge right now. O am looking forward to trying it with lunch today
Do you muddle, cut or put in the leaves whole?
*raises a glass* Thank you for the superb Bubble tea recipe. I'm sipping with a smile.:)
This has a lot of stuff in it. Smelled odd but tasted great.
Iced Tea Tumbler promo is back on until further notice. All orders $59+ will receive a free iced tea tumbler. You can add it to your cart if you'd like to see it in your order contents by visiting this page: https://www.adagio.com/offers/tumbler.html
Yay!! My last order I redeemed reward points for the 2021 cold cup but received a 2022 cold cup instead.
what a cute tumbler, unfortunately I just ordered tea :c
Me too. :( but go to the reward page and it's 100 points.
I am feeling the chills today ❄️🥶 so I drank a cuppa Moringa and now I am feeling warm and better! I can take off my gloves, beanie and turn off my heating blanket, lol!! How interesting the bodies reaction to certain teas. Im gonna have to do some googling to research other body warm teas and while Im at it body cooling too (in case a fever follows these chills). Does anyone have experience with any certain teas that give a body heat or cooling?
Kona Pineapple may help you cool,..re: if you have chills from a fever! And solely Warming..Perhaps a Spiced Mate?
Twyla, thank you for the suggestions! I am pretty sure I have those in my stash😘
Teas with spices like cloves, ginger, cinnamon or cardamom heat you up. Hibiscus reduces heat and fever and lemongrass is cooling also.
Hope you are feeling better soon, Julia.
Thank you Jan! So far the chills are gone and no fever! Praise God!
Oops i accidentally created an emoji drop spot
For those who've been interested in the Bonne Maman advent calendar, it's available now on Amazon. They sell out fast, so if you don't want to miss out this year, order it soon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08D98XBX8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Thanks for the heads up! Oh how I luv Advent calendars! I hear so much about the jelly one!! Teaheeee off to Amazon
Everyone raved about this one last year, so I've been wanting to try it. When they announced that it would be available in August I started stalking the Amazon and Bonne Maman websites daily for updates. LOL
Thank you! This was my favorite last year!!
I hadn't heard of this advent calendar before but I do like their products. Ordered one! Last year I got a Cheese Advent Calendar on clearance after the holiday
Wow, seems like an early release! I ended up finding that product at Sam’s Club last year, although I don’t know if all Sam’s stock them.
I was thinking the same thing. How am I supposed to have the patience to leave it unopened until December??? I'm gonna have to hide it from myself! LOL
I also ordered... and will definitely need to hide it!
Thank you SO MUCH for the heads-up earlier! I really would like to know why I signed up for the darn email notification if they never notified me. 😝
Thanks for the head's up and link. I just ordered mine! ;-)
You're all very welcome! I'm glad so many of you have been able to order one (or 3, LOL). I'm looking forward to all of us sharing tea and jams for the holidays! :-)
Flight delay - going to be a long day with mediocre tea at best.
Are you flying from San Diego or LAX?
Today has been such a day and it's barely already started... I had emailed IT that I had fixed my own laptop on Monday. I just thought that they had gotten it because I viewed the update in my ticket. Wellllll... they're coming to me today wondering what's going on with the laptop because I didn't visit the person in the office today. O_O Then, I picked up 2 assignments that looked very similar, and they were in fact accidentally split into 2 requests, so I had to leverage my regional manager to attempt to combine the 2 and it went horribly wrong in every way possible and now she has to come behind me and clean up the mess and I feel bad. And then I actually started working on them and they were doing things in here that were against company policy... So I had to talk to them and talk to my senior and correct it before proceeding... So over 2 and a half hours later, I have just decided to take my lunch. I would like it to be 7 PM now, end my day, say goodbye, go back to bed, not deal with anything else. Hahaha! I don't wanna'! XD
Hopefully it gets better! That is a managers job, you are just giving her something to do ;). Sounds like the initial error was higher than you anyways. Just be sure to give your thanks for the help, you have got this!
Thank you so much! You're absolutely right. I just feel bad when I have to get her involved. XD Just because of past experiences at other jobs. The people here are really great and have never made me feel bad about asking questions or asking for help. <3
I hope 7pm just zips right to you! ❤️
Thank you so much! It has been nothing short of insane today, but I am almost to 7!! XD
The tea smells nice out of the packet and when brewed. It has a very mild color and taste.
Made a lovely cold brew of
coconut grove pouchong. Yum yum coconut-y refreshment.
That's one of my favorites. It is yummy.
anybody interested in a trade? :) looking to complete my samples!
Made ya an offer. :)
thank you much !
Feel free to take a look at what I have. Anything that isn't locked is up for trade. God bless...
Waiting for my flight out of New Orleans at the Louis Armstrong airport, and I just found out it's Louis Armstrong's birthday! What a happy coincidence!
I am just enjoying today’s tea. I put it in a half-pint mason jar in the fridge last night to cold-brew. I would say it was probably in there for about 12 hours and I was afraid it would be bitter but it’s not. It’s a nice, fruity, refreshing drink, and I like the fact that it has more flavor than some of the other recent light teas. I think it’s pomegranate that I am noticing and liking the most. It’s not overdone and it blends nicely with the other flavors in the blend.
This was not my cup of tea... but to be fair, I'm not a green tea fan.
Todays cards tagline is basically ‘happily ever after’ so I hope we are all having a fabulous flipping day!
Update on the foraged berry wine. It has been racked into the airlock and was NEON PINK! I'll have a pic up tomorrow, but this was the most beautiful wine I've ever made.
Glad it worked out. Can’t wait to see the results!
It needs about 2 more weeks in the airlock before I bottle it, but I'm really hopeful for how its going. Tastes great so far.
Kelsey, I’ve enjoyed the rainbow variety of paper flowers you’ve been posting! They are so cool!!
You guys....I think my job interview went really well! They said they would let me know by Monday. But I have a really good feeling. And, and, and...I pulled the Ace of Pentacles today, which is like the best damn card you can get for letting you know you're gonna get that job! :D
Monday is a really short timeline, too - sounds like they've all but made up their minds! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
Thanks guys! They said they had alot of applicants, but they have to hire someone fast since they just had a resignation to fill~
That's AMAZING!!! Sending good vibes your way~~~!! :D
Nice card pull!! All the Luck and Positivity, Cindi!
Awesome news! You got this!! 🤩
I hope this comes through for you.
Fingers crossed and positive vibes sent your way!
Have a wonderful evening/rest of your day and a great night with pleasant dreams. I'll be off early this weekend (starting today, LOL), and it's almost time for supper, so I'll say goodnight. God bless and sleep well.
Enjoy your evening!
Anyone know what's in the Cherry Chip tea? I can't find the one I got in my Mystery Box on the site. Picture has a black background, a cherry, and the title in a ribbon below it, so it doesn't seem to be the one currently listed.

I’ve got chills tonight too, but mine is due to air conditioning turned too high and also eating two cold foods tonight ( beets and cottage cheese). I guess I should know better! I’m in my long sleeved jammies and under the covers. I’ll paint pictures that I did sketches for tomorrow…
We’re those eaten separately or mixed? The idea of beet colored cottage cheese sounds kinda intriguing!
I hope you are feeling better in the morning!
Today's tea is OK. Rather light though and not really my thing.
Anyone looking for a Fujian Rain card? Hmu.
Love Fujian rain! Sent you an offer
Thanks for the Trade, Red Wolfe!
Drat! I'm too late! Enjoy, Red Wolfe!
Enjoyed today’s blend very much!
Ah I don't remember if I liked today's tea or not...its been THAT kind of day.
Thank you everyone for your well wishes for my best friend and her family yesterday. Someone up there is listening to you all. Her FIL made it through surgery and is conscious. She told me that he was babbling, but they made out one sentence. He was asking where his granddaughter was. So we’re optimistic about his recovery! Thank you again so much. It was a stressful couple hours and I appreciate your positivity and support. Sending you all great big hugs!
Yay! That's great news Christine!
That is fantastic news! Amazing what a tea drinking, thoughtful, kind group of folks can accomplish with prayers and positiviTEA? ❤️😇
That is fabulous news Christine! Hope the remainder of his recovery goes smoothly.
Anyone here a Game of Thrones fan? I’m getting excited for House of the Dragon! I’m working on a new tea fandom to celebrate the new show. 🐉
I enjoyed the books, loved the series til the final season.....I'm on the fence about the new series. Kinda a bit upset with RR over the book situation. I hope it's great and you enjoy it....still haven't decided if I'm watching or not.
Season 8 was definitely disappointing. I blame the show runners for trying to wrap it up too fast. I think House of the Dragon will be good. It also looks like they have a John Snow series in the works too. I’m very excited for that and hope to see all my favorite characters back. Especially Tyrion!
So I’ve had a BUMPER crop of cucumbers this year and I’ve been turning them into quick pickles because I didn’t want to deal with canning. Well. It got to the point I was still drowning in cucumbers and quick pickles don’t last that long so I went out and got some canning jars and made four 32 oz jars of pickles and have more to make tomorrow. Not perfect. I’m used to canning small jars of jelly and i miscalculated how deep my pots needed to be, so I lost a little bit of brine in some of the jars. BUT they sealed. And that makes me happy
WOW, that’s awesome! I LOVE dill pickles. Wish we had a bumper crop but we didn’t plant any this year. How about if I trade you tomatoes for cukes? I’ll bet you have those too 😉
The plants are loaded, but they aren’t ripening yet! I’ll be in this position with tomatoes in a month. This round of pickles, I’m trying a sweet chili method. There’s a guy at the local farmers market that does a sweet and spicy pickle that I’m addicted to. Tomorrow, I’m going to cut up the rest of my current cukes and go for a traditional dill pickle with the dill in my garden. I also ordered a proper canning pot that will be deep enough!
Elizabeth, sweet chili pickles sound yummy. Please share the recipe when you decide what works best. 😋
Does liking something someone says count towards maintaining a chat streak?
No, it needs to be a unique comment
no you have to actually post a message.
Don’t worry, Nina. Pretty soon you will be answering questions for others. You are asking a lot of the same questions I did, and I only started with the CommuniTea in February. Keep asking!
Also it can be as short a message as "Hi"
Off for the weekend! But tomorrow full up with errands so might as well be a work day ha ha Got some tea sipped the last couple of days....both the CT packets of course and then had packets of decaf strawberry, Kamikaze, Waffles and Cream, PIcard's Tea (love earl grey but not with rose mixed in with it), almond oolong, Ali shan and blood orange. Making my way through my leftover packets! :) Only have half a basket left! Put in an order today -- September box and coffee samples, plus the rest of my gift tea from my birthday! Yay!!
Today's tea as just okay for me; I think I was expecting something "stronger," based on the aroma from the packet. Not bad, though! I do like the tea description; curious about the fandom from reading it.
Jim R, if you happen to see this, thanks for your response to my question last night regarding the Fujian teas we sampled last month!
You’re very welcome!
Power outage. Sigh. We’ve been here 6yrs. In the first 5yrs the lights might dim or flicker once or twice but never really go OUT-out. We’ve had several serious outages in the last year alone. Seems like Earth doesn’t like us anymore. 😬
I loved today's tea.
My daughter made Turkish Shortbread using Lardera's Junin Natural and Selefina's green cardamon pods. All went into the coffee bean grinder.
Yum. Would love your recipe.
I enjoyed this tea. A healthy liver is so important.
Who said they had an Almond Oolong card? I have a Lemongrass Ginger card I'd like to trade, if possible. EDIT: Sorry for the late post, I am heading to bed, but if there is an offer for my Lemongrass Ginger in the morning, I will accept it. :)
I like today's tea but it would be better with black instead of green
I like it. It's so sweet!
Happy 22nd Anniversary Woodie and Irishman!! I hope you celebrated with great tea!
Good morning Christine my Tea Pal. Enjoy your morning with the tea of the day. Thanks for the kind message. :)
Left our apt to make a quick run to the store and pick up some dinner....note taped to our door. Exterminators coming tomorrow -- with orders to remove EVERYTHING from kitchen cabinets and counters, put in trash bags and put out of the way. Same thing in the bathroom -- and put in bags in the tub ????? With ONE DAY notice?? And if it isn't done, there is an $85 "extra trip'' charge because the company will have to come back another day to do it. I just got my kitchen the way I wanted it....and now I had to put everything in bags and put them on my bed. We don't have bugs in our apartment -- haven't seen a single one. I'm glad they are proactive and spraying before it's a problem -- but having to empty out all the cupboards and counters with very little notice?? And, the notice says they will be at our building between 9 and 5 tomorrow, and after spraying we can't re-enter the apartment for an hour. But we have no clue when they will actually be here -- so essentially we have to be out all day. Great. And then when I come home -- I have to put my entire kitchen back together. I am highly annoyed!!!! Ok....I am done ranting. I'm going to brew tea now. That should calm me down. Kitchen is emptied except for the air fryer and instant pot. I will remove those in a minute. Then go empty out the cabinet in the bathroom and put the stuff in a bag in the tub. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR. One day notice! ARGH! Ok.....deep breaths, deep breaths -- brewing tea. (on the good side -- we should continue to have no bugs. So I guess I'm ok with it. Just didn't expect to spend my Friday night putting all my stuff away again)
That is insane ! Don't you work from home?
Yes, but we work M-Th, so I'm off tomorrow. Thank god -- if tomorrow was a work day I would be even more annoyed. lol
Yikes! What a mess. I imagine you will be talking to the management about the amount of notice in the future. I would.
yeah I'm going to say something. One day notice is not enough.
Oh gosh! How frustrating. Especially after you just unpacked everything. Management would be getting an earful from me.
Not a bad tea but I am not sure I would choose it
Good night everyone. Tomorrow is Friday! I hope it's a good one for everyone.
Good night everyone!
I am only just now getting to chat, but when I looked at the ingredients of todays tea and the “liver disaster”, I wondered if it was meant to be like sangria. I may or may not have harmed my liver with that at some point in my life.
