Our lungs are amazing! They work day and night to keep our heads clear and our hearts happy. They work even harder when we exercise or get frightened and even let us know when we fall in love! Now you can show your lungs a little love in return with our Breathe Well herbal wellness tea. Blended with helpful ingredients such as mullein and eucalyptus which are traditionally used to support lung health and keep you breathing easy. It has a minty fresh taste with a touch of citrus that is enhanced nicely when you add a little honey. Show your lungs some love with our Breathe Well tea today!
Moss agate is supposed to aid in quick recovery, so I figured this cutie would be perfect for today's tea!
Sleep well tea friends.
Good evening - hope everyone had a good day.
Anybody else like personality tests? Apparently I'm an INTJ on Myers Briggs and 8 on the enneagrams test. Anybody else know their personality?
I'm an ENTJ, Commander, and yup have my personality tea in my extensive to-make pile. The E part is why I miss having coworkers in person so much, since I'm working from home now
Yes, my analytical side sure does. According to the free Myer Briggs I am an INTJ-A., Assertive Architect. https://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test
Michelle, I just used the link you posted for the personality test and was surprised that I came up as ENFP. In the past I always tested as ENFJ. I didn’t know what the P meant so I looked up the description of the two. I think the ENFJ still describes me to a T so it must have had something to do with the way I answered the questions. I definitely don’t see myself fitting the description of an ENFP. It’s a very interesting tool though. Any other ENFJs out there? I know Julie is an INFJ - close
I’m an ENFJ, retired RN after 46 years. Guess you know where the F comes into play
I know my Myer Briggs but, since I'm so introverted, I won't share my type. Lol
I like them! I'm an INFP, which I suppose could explain why the lockdown didn't phase me.
I am a Defender, ISFJ-T, and a 6 on the enneagram test, so I am very untrusting and always expecting the worst... 😊
I have those traits too! Maybe I have multiple personality types 😉 I’ve taken the test a few times and have gotten 2 different results. INFP and ISFJ. Weird!!
I knew mine years ago. I think it was INTJ, but other than the I, I wasn't too far from center, so I could flex over to the SFP side relatively easily. I would guess I've changed some since college.
Been years since I took this test, so did it again (thanks for the link). Much shorter than the one I sat for in the 90s, but results pretty much the same: INFJ I guess this is why I work in social services ha ha :)
Addison, I am an INFJA - Advocate.
I'm an INFP - Mediator
I’m an INFP-A. I think I have some of the traits but not all.
I just tried out the link shared by Michelle and apparently I'm an Advocate - INFJ. Nice to know!
I am an INFP, and my husband is INFJ. We can usually understand our fights as explained by the P-J continuum, as we were at opposite ends of that scale when we first took the tests. I believe we have each moved a bit toward the center over the years, which has been good for both of us. I have my personalitea tea as well, which is delicious. I guess my personality is summed up as mediator, according to Michelle's link.
Mine changes with mood lol. The only constant is IN.
Ha ha! Me too, Christine. My constants are I and F. We have multiple personalities.
Also I went back and read the description on the ENTJ tea and that's me to a tee https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=183184
I never remember what I’m supposed to be and I think my type changes every few years. Edit: Yep, today I’m INTP - Logician and the last time I was labeled an Architect. Edit part 2: Husband was labeled ENFJ like we have almost nothing in common, LOL.
INTP here too.
ISFJ-T Defender according to this test, it’s pretty accurate.
I got to make some pistachio toffee chocolate chip cookies for a friend gathering today! The combo works really well, unfortunately due to the heat the cookies spread a bit more than I wanted but that's okay! Hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday!
That sounds delicious, Sara!
Sara, Sadly they didn't spread to Florida...they look so good!
Mary, they didn’t make it California either…..
My pic shows one of my sewing helpers. This is Snowy Monkey that my Mom got for being a Tupperware manager that I've shown before.
When I think breathe well! I think of my always stuffed sinuses!! Thank you allergies!! Maybe I need a large bag of this! 😜
I was just thinking the same thing. I’m gonna need some of this in the morning, glad I have a bag.
Have a blessed Sunday CT. 😇
Good evening, good morning tea fronds🫖🪴🪴🪴. I hope everyone is staying cool this weekend. We are living without an air conditioner this weekend, and the high temp inside today was 87°. Thank God for swamp coolers and fans, so at least we have a couple little pools of slightly cooler air to live in. It should get fixed on Monday, I hope! We'll keep drinking lots of iced tea. It was too hot to get up and take a proper tea picture, so here's a nice cool shore for our imaginations.
We went back to work last week with the A/C not yet complete. Most days were hovering around 100°. Fortunately my room was the coolest in the building, so I enjoyed approximately 80° life, which was sweaty but tolerable. They're saying Wednesday should be functional.
Oh Rebecca, I'm glad it wasn't too bad. Our ancient AC unit was intended for the 2b 1 bath original structure, so the later square footage additions make the original unit work too hard. When it hits 90+° outside we cannot cool much below 78°, but that's okay with me because we have a lot of fans in the house. It's when it gets to be 97° inside like it did yesterday that it's a bit much. ♨️🔥🥵. Lol, it will make us appreciate the air conditioning even more even if it is old.
Michelle, love the scene at the shore. I hope you are able to stay fairly comfortable until your AC can be repaired.
Thanks Mary! 🤗
This just reminded me to share, pet meds like heartgard have a storage temperature range. When our house gets too hot, I move the packs to our lower level to keep ‘em cooler.
Good reminder, right now I have a few cats who've melted a bit and might want some frig time, too! It's much less rambunctious in our house this weekend 😉
Good luck Michelle and I hope it doesn't take long. We lost ours on a Friday at the beginning of one of the earlier hot spells, but we were lucky to get it repaired on Tuesday.
The rambunctiousness decrease is obvious here on hot days. Zen has found that stretching belly up in line with a fan is delightful.
I have never heard of a swamp cooler before you brought it up, but maybe I should invest in it. The house we’re moving into was built in the 1800s and apparently lacks insulation so it’s always in the 80s even with 2 air conditioners running.
I can relate. My house was built in 1913 with no insulation. Any we do have is from later renovations. We did have electricity originally though. Unfortunately that means several closet lights are literally hanging from their electrical cord. :-/ As we get to renovations they are slowly being replaced.
Big Fish Fry party today - SO HOT - we set up fans everywhere - folks came, enjoyed the fish and other food, and especially each other's company! Success. Happy Sisters Day! My photo has photos of my sister and I over the years.
Yum! I love a good fish fry!
Not sure how this tea works but it cleared my sinuses.
Good night 🌚
Photo: Relaxing and playing a few games with friends could aid in breathing well and with improved mental health. This probably works only if you are relaxing and enjoy a friendly game—but likely not if you’re out to destroy your opponent. But how you play is up to you. **I took a photo of a picture in a store. It’s not my artwork.
Paula, it may not be your artwork but your sentiments are great!
Thank you! I like your diver. I love the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
This is my painting from the Bob Ross instruction, my Mama and I attended. In 2016 for Mothers day I got my Mama and I tickets to paint with a Bob Ross certified instructor, they are small classes of about 10-15 people and last about 6 hours. It was fun and extremely challenging, Bob made all of them look like a cakewalk. 85 days till Halloween 🎃
Looks great! Is that too early to be Sabby or Violet chilling on the beach?
Thank you Erin, yes I painted Sabby in. The instructor was less than thrilled💜🐈⬛💜🤣
Age, it is beautiful! I love seascapes, there's something so relaxing about them. You did a lovely job.
Thank you so much Michelle 💜 🐈⬛💜
You did a great job. I'm impressed.
Thank you Anneke!💜 to be completely honest I'm impressed I painted it too!! It was super challenging!!!
Age, You made it look so easy, wave are so difficult. The sky is really well done too. Looks like a Florida coastal storm on the way. So cool Sabby snuck on to the beach!
Thank you Sue!!💜 the shy is my favorite part and if course Sabby on the beach💜🐈⬛💜😘
Thank you Michelle 💜 😊
That's sounds like so much fun. And your end product is great!
Thank you Stephanie💜💜
Oh...it's beautiful! 🌊
Thank you Carrie 💜😘
Beautiful art. It sounds like a lovely experience.
Thank you Paula!!💜 I hope to have the opportunity to do another someday💜
Bob always did make it look so easy :) it looks great! Nice work!
Tyrrell, you are so right, but it is enjoyable to try and follow along! 🖼🖌🎨
Your paintings are amazing, Tyrell. Thank you so much for sharing them!
Thank you Tyrell!! Bob was so chill, I was so nervous🤣😂
Age, your painting and your mother's painting are beautiful. I would love being able to do that.
Thank you Mary!!💜 just Google Bob Ross certified instructors, there maybe classes in your area💜😘
I love that you did that together! I see Sweet Sabby on the beach! I love it! I want to do that with my husband and adult children. I think it would be so cool to have the same painting from four different perspectives.
Thank you Shelly💜😘 at the end of the class we got to walk around and see all the other painters work and it was fun to see how different the paintings turned out💜💜💜
Beautiful!! And you’re right about Bob making it look so easy. I’ve tried to paint along with him and I kept rewinding because my hands/brain definitely couldn’t do what he was doing with ease lol
You made me think of this Brandon Farris video! Excited to see he made more! I will watch them ;) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QHmHgvE6mMQ
Not sure who made the video but there but thre is at least one where the person tried to follow along with just listening, not watching. It was rather amusing to watch. Painting with a Twist is more my speed.
Thank you💜 Bob is a whole level of zen chill that I hope to reach one day💜😘
Hello tea fronds! 🫖🪴 This was a perfectly timed tea. I was feeling a little under the weather today and It helped! I added one of my blends that has citrus mint green, peppermint and spearmint for an extra boost. Have a wonderful Sunday! 😊🥳
ChasiTEA, I hope the tea has helped you feel better.
Mary, I feel much better now. My headache is better and I'm breathing clear. Just in time for my first day back to work in my classroom and PD tomorrow.
Chasi, I was thinking about a nice cup of Fronds Mint Green today. Adding it to the breathe well sounds like an excellent idea! Your photo is very pretty,and cooling 🌬🍃, and I think I spy a new mug?
Michelle, you are correct! My mother in law surprised me with a four piece set of this pattern and a sugar bowl.
I was thinking the same thing! I’m not at 100% either. Maybe I will drink some fronds tea later too! I hope you feel better Chasi!
Christine, the tea and a little time to unwind at home helped so much. Thank you!
2 out of 3 dogs got sprayed by a skunk. Not sure what's up with my luck.
Oh no! I'm so sorry. I hope they're okay. ❤️
Sorry to hear that. Hope you're able to get them cleaned up somewhat easily.
Hit enter once and got multiple replies. Guess we were due for an emoji parade. :-)
Thanks Nancy. I got to use my new eye roll teamoji for the first time!
Oh Steffi, I am sorry, those are stinky buggers! 🦨
oh no! Poor doggos!
Been there, done that, feeling your pain!
Steffi, so sorry for you and your babies! I hope the clean up went smoothly!
Hi Janet. I look forward to the emoji parking lots too so I can use the eye roll. It's the only time the eye roll--which is adorable--seems appropriate to use. The devil too, mostly, unless someone is speaking of their very mischievous pet. lol
I hope you all have had a great weekend so far! I had fun with a wasp at work today, but otherwise a good day here. ;o;
Last Sunday was International Friendship Day, promoting friendship across countries and cultures. Today is National Friendship Day, celebrating new and existing loving platonic relationships. Add some tea and that’s communiTEA, right? 🥰
Yes, Erin! We have a perfect place to celebrate!🙋♂️🙋♀️🙋
Good morning, everyone! Happy Sunday. It's another busy day for me, starting with family prayer and Mass, but I hope to be able to pop in later. God bless and enjoy your day.
God bless, have a wonderful Sunday!
It's been terrific, Jennifer, if busy. I hope your Sunday is going well. God bless and pleasant dreams.
Good morning Marlicia.
Goodnight, Sue. I hope your Sunday is going well. I'm getting ready to turn in, hopefully the rain will make pleasant sleeping conditions. God bless and sleep well.
Enjoy your Sunday, Marlicia!
It's been a lovely, if rather busy day, Shelly, and I'm ready to say goodnight. 😇I hope your Sunday and vacation have been amazing. God bless and pleasant dreams.
Happy Birthday, Gabrielle. I hope your special day is filled with every blessing and good thing.
Happy Birthday Gabrielle! Have a great day!🎉🎈🎂
It's a beautiful morning! Enjoy it
Happy birthday Gabrielle! I saw the party hat!
Good morning! Have a peaceful Sunday!
Good morning, hope you all have a happy and healthy day.
Beautiful quilt, Sue, filled with hours of exacting work. A labor of love.
Good morning, Sue. The colors and pattern of your next quilt are lovely!
Sue, I am so intrigued by your quilting. I love quilts, and yours are so beautiful.
😇😘 Same to you, Sweet Sue!
Good morning tea friends. Happy Sunday and enjoy the CT tea of today, or just drink your favorite teas. Have a great day everyone.
Just popped in to say hello and wish all my Tea Pals a very good day. Sending lots of Tea Hugs to everyone.
((Hugs)) back to you, tea fronds 🫖🪴🥰
Thank you, Michelle!
Good morning! My kiddos asked me to make crepes for breakfast today (the batter was done last night). Mmm! Nutella and crepes! :D I drank down some Year of the Tiger along side it because I need the caffeine due to the wicked t-storms we had last night. I've tried Breathe Well but I don't see myself drinking it again until the next respiratory illness hits this house. Have a blessed day everyone!
Have a great day Jennifer! Enjoy your tea of the day! :)
You too, Woodie!
Crepes and Nutella are delicious. I like adding bananas to them as well
We did apples, coconut, and peaches with some of em. Some also had yogurt. Us gals chose to have a savory one too so we weren't all full of sugar. :)
Good morning everyone!!!
Hello, Stephanie: I hope you had a great Sunday, Sunday, and Sunday. lol Enjoy your evening my tea friends.
Happy Birthday Gabrielle.
Morning! It’s a beautiful one here for now, rain comes back supposedly around lunch time. But we’re out enjoying the cooler temp and nice weather while we can.
Good morning and good afternoon! 😄
Good morning, everyone! Unfortunately, I can't have today's tea, but I did post a picture of my friend who was on national TV last night! They showed the video of the incident, which I had already seen, and they talked a little bit about their situation and their struggles over the past 3 months, and then they showed the wanted guy's information for the whole country to see. I really hope it helps! And I hope everyone has a great Sunday! 😊
I hope they get the monster.
Good morning, Julia. I hope you have a cool spot to enjoy your tea!
Happy Birthday Gabrielle 🎂
Happy birthday Gabrielle.🎈
Good morning. I am so happy to finally get to try this tea
This is an interesting tea. I think I might brew a pot of Boldly next.
Ruth, that one is yummy, but I love blueberry teas. 🫐
I got the Breathe sample and will be sipping along this afternoon/evening. When I first tried it I loved it. I am prone to issues with my lungs and it was quite therapeutic. I wish I had this tea to sip many times in the past when I was doing battle with allergies, asthma, bronchitis and what the doctor thought was whooping cough. This morning I sipped on Scottish Breakfast and hubby had Jin Kong Que.
Same-same. Plan to have some Aries tea for a caffiene pop of goodness, this morn.
I got this one in a sample a few months back, its one of the few teas with fennel I don't outright hate.
Ashley, your pic is so cool! Been wondering...Is that kitteh 3D printed, is it a bath bomb or did you create/paint it?
Enjoyed the Breathe packet last night before beddie-bye. Totally rad--will def be adding that to my tea stash! 🫁🌬
Tea delivery yesterday! Thanks everyone for the birthday teas! I also got my spice rack, which is beautiful.
I keep hearing about that rack here but haven’t seen it on the site. Maybe is a special email offer or only seen on the site via computer?
It's at the bottom on the website, at least on computer.
I'm going to drink today's tea this evening. After I help my mom with yard work.
Good morning! Lots to celebrate from lighthouses to sisters! I love my sisters :). Angelic is the bestest oldest sister ever! She is quite brilliant
and brave, and I have always admired her!
Michelle, I wish I had a sister to celebrate with...only child here. If any of you have a sister, hug them for me! Virtual hugs count too if they are not close. Gladys is too cute today. Her heart is always in the right place.
Love my sister too! Although we live only about 15 minutes away from each other…I wish we did more things together.
My sister and I are like night and day. I live in a quiet cul-de-sac while she lives in a lake house in a neighborhood described by many as party central.
We admire both of you, Michelle and Angelic! I don't have a sister, but I've always wanted one!
Michelle is the best youngest sister ever! She is the brave one, facing all of life's challenges thrown her way with strength and grace.
One of the many things I admire about her along with her selflessness and amazing kindess.
My little sister and I drove each other crazy as teens, but now she's one of my best friends. We live 2 states apart, so we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like.
Good morning all!
Good morning! Supposed to be a huge storm today near where I live, so that’s unfortunate.. but at least today I’m feeling up for some tea from my stash. Hopefully I can resume communitea in September!
It says it's supposed to thunderstorm here today... but also shows no rain... and our heat warning has been extended yet again. 🥵🔥
Yaay, got to use my first eye roll teamoji..as I cannot stand humidity and heat warnings. I am hoping for some nice Tstorms.
Same by me :/ It might thunderstorm later though, not sure... there's a chance but it's gotten less likely since I checked the weather yesterday.
I have a couple of days of tea packets to catch up on. Looking forward to having yesterday's and today's tea later on. Having some iced tea this morning since it's already super hot and humid 🔥
took a picture of my tea with my breakfast. Not sure how I feel about the tea yet - but the breakfast was delicious?
I usually have the CommuniTEA tea with my breakfast too. I always have the breakfast first and then have to clear my palate for the tea. XD
Happy Sunday to you!
Gabrielle. Happy birthday. 🎈🎁🎂🌹
Heather, was Fox giving the worker at the drive-up window the raspberries?? Hopefully he finally got his order.
He did! He got a pumpkin loaf AND a pup cup!
Way to go Fox! Laddie had a Frosty Paws today and was quite happy! It's the only treat/food that isn't gobbled up in two seconds.
I am surprised by how much I like today's tea. I was ready to hit it with honey if i didn't like it at first. I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased.
I'm looking for one more white peach card to finish my sample, if anyone is looking to trade theirs away, look through my cards!
Sent you an offer!
Quick hello today! I wish all of you peace and blessings! Enjoy your Sunday 😘🫖😇
Anyone looking for an Earl Grey Bravo card, hmu!!?!
I'd be happy to have one, Twyla. Check and see if I have any that you would like.
Trade offered! Thank you!!
Loving today's tea
The property I live in has just been broken into. It's so scary and absolutely devastating. They didn't take anything that belongs to me, but they absolutely decimated the door and windows. It is so scary, 1 because of the break-in itself, but also 2 we don't live in a good area of town and now we're vulnerable with no door. I contacted the property manager immediately and a new door has been ordered and police called. She is very, very nice.
Cassidy I hope they fix it ASAP. Be safe!
Thank you so, so much! We're discussing safety options now. Also trying to find Lucy. Lucy is more of a hider than a runner so we're hoping she's hiding somewhere. Will give her lots of love as soon as I find her. ❤️
That’s awful! What is even the point of doing that? I hope your door gets there quickly and that you stay safe.
Thank you so much! I have a few ideas in mind - disgruntled ex-tenant (they just evicted my entire hallway except us), someone maybe looking for air conditioning not realizing the building doesn't have AC... 🤣 , or maybe someone who genuinely wanted to steal something but then realized we have nothing of value... 😂 But yeah, broad daylight while we're home, they must've been desperate for something.
Oh dear. I hope something can be done so you feel safe. Have you found Lucy yet? I pray she is okay.
Yes, I did. Thank you so much! ❤️
Cassidy I pray you are safe!
Thank you so much! We're going to take our chances and stay here tonight. It's a little difficult to get Lucy to agree to be moved. 🤣
Yikes, stay safe, Cassidy!
Thank you! We'll try. :)
I'm glad you guys are ok and that you found Lucy!!!! Be safe! ((hugs))
Thank you! *hugs* <3
How terrible. Hope repairs are made soon and that you remain safe.
Thank you so much! We will try. <3
Happy birthday, Gabrielle! I hope that you have a wonderful day enjoying teas that you love!
Speaking of breathing well..I featured a Salt Lamp in my pic..has anyone enjoyed a Salt Cave/Salt Room and the benefits of? I quite enjoy going to them!!
Yes, Twyla. When I was still working, I would work two back-to-back 12-hour graveyard shifts in LA, which is about 70 miles from home. I would spend the day at a Korean spa not far from the hospital. It’s a 24-hour place and for $25 for the full 24 hours, you could go into several separate sauna rooms, including a clay room, a salt room, and an ice room. Generally I just slept in the dark room as I needed to work again that night, but I have gone at other times and found the various saunas very relaxing. Now that I’m retired, I wish I lived closer so I could go there regularly.
Ooh, I love Ice rooms too! That sounds awesome!
Twyla, my soul sister! I have salt lamps all over my home. We have a salt cave/room nearby. You just reminded me that it would be so cool to go visit with my family while everyone is home. xoxo
Sos! I found one that is relatively nearby in State College, I have never been BUT would go!
Twyla, do your kitties leave it alone?. Hubby read that some cat can OD on salt. He worriesa out them.
This tea reminds me of a couple of teas offered by Traditional Medicinals. I have used them for years when I have an upper respiratory infection or sinus congestion from allergies.
nice flavor, since I have a cough, I'll see if it helps
I’m looking for one more Assam Melody card to complete a sample. Can anyone help me out?
Great news! We found Lucy!! 😍 She was indeed hiding. She is safe and very loved. ❤️
Woooo. First time on the site today. Today was the great furniture redistribution of 2021. My parents spent the latter half of this week loading up a uhaul with the furniture our side of the family inherited from my grandmother. Then we started at their house and unpacked their stuff. They got the dining room furniture, which meant THEIR dining room furniture needed a home. So on the truck that went bound for my house. We stopped at my brother’s house next. He didn’t have as much. I was last and the FUN house. New (to me) dining room set, full bedroom set. The bedroom set is over 100 years old. Several pieces are marble topped. The bed MADE IT UP TO MY ROOM (we really weren’t sure it would). Bed and dresser still need to be assembled. But we were tired, hot and the truck had to be returned. So. The project continues. Now that it’s here, I am going to gamble on it actually going back together (please don’t jinx it please don’t jinx it) and order a mattress. For now, it’s the guest room for me at night!!
Elizabeth, sounds like you got quite a haul!
I really did! I have two whole rooms that have been unfurnished or fake furnished for two years that are suddenly full of furniture!
That’s fabulous ! I’ve got my great grandparents two dressers and dining room table. Solid Walnut, like they made them in the 1930’s. I love having them because of sentiment , and the quality is superb.
The original quality of this furniture is fabulous. But it needs a lot of TLC. My project now that every has left, is to start cleaning and polishing! The bed was my grandmothers as a child. And it was gifted to HER used by her aunt. She got it when she was 12 in 1930. So I’m basing age on that!
whats the verdict on today's tea? iced? hot?
I haven’t tried it iced yet. It’s good hot. I feel like If you’re going for the health benefits, this tea will FUNCTION better hot
Rita, Thin Mint Pretzels are a good choice to have with tea. I wish Costco still carried Thin Mint Almonds. Those are my favorites.
Those sound amazing!
Christine Jolly—beautiful flower.
Thank you so much! It actually belongs to my neighbor down the street. It was so pretty I couldn't help but to photograph it.
Ashley, I adore your cat.
Tyrell—another spectacular painting. I hope your art event went well the other night.
Here here! Tyrell, I thought that was a photograph at first. It wasn't until I read your caption that I realized it was a painting.
Thanks Anneke! 😁
Thank you Paula! It did! Mostly it was just me hanging out with a couple of friends and enjoying some appetizers and drinks, but I did get to talk to a few people about my art and had a nice time :)
Anyone up for a tea exchange with Gladys?🤣
Looks a little wild, but sure!
Maybe be specific about how it needs to be packaged? ;)
The envelope will smell great when you get it at least
Hi my tea friends hope you having a great day!🫖☕️🐈⬛❤️
Hi Age !❤️❤️❤️
Hello Linda and sleepy Violet! Have a wonderful day and try to stay cool!
Good afternoon everyone!
Hello Lilac, I love your avatar 🐯
Bit relieved to see this tea today -- I've had a sinus headache, hoping this willl help!
I hope your headache gets better soon. Sinus headaches are so awful!
Hi Everybody! I hope you all have a fabulous day!
I am looking forward to sampling today’s tea later today but I am still in need of caffeine - lots of it! We went to the Dodgers game last night and didn’t get home until midnight. I didn’t fall asleep very quickly and the last time I looked at my Fitbit, it was 2am. Yikes! I have felt sleepy most of the time since I got up. I had one cup of coffee when I came downstairs and now I’m enjoying a cup of Keep Calm and Kiss the Butler. What’s your favorite tea to get your engine up and running?
Dream Drop Delicious...(fav EG blend, thus far)..gets me going! And, actually Moringa clears the brain fog, for me!
I LOVE Dream Drop Delicious, Twyla!
Irish Stout, hands down!! 😋
Oooohhh, Irish Stout is another favorite of mine. I’m trying to be careful and not drink it too fast, as we aren’t likely to see it until next March.
Jan, the caffeine in tea doesn't seem to affect me like it does from coffee. Which is a good thing because I certainly drink a lot of it. However, I do get a gentle energy boost from the pure black teas like Golden Needle or any of the Fuijan or Yunan black teas.
I agree with you, Michelle. I think there’s something different about the caffeine in coffee and that in tea. Tea caffeine seems to be gentler on my innerds. I find it works best for me to have 1 cup of coffee in the morning and then switch over to enjoying my favorite teas and trying new ones.
Irish Stout when I REALLY need a boost.
Oooohh, Mary, I LOVE Irish Stout and wish I had bought more when it was available. I am opening one tomorrow and that will leave me with one more unopened in the pantry until next March.
Irish Stout is also a favorite of mine. 🍀
Scottish breakfast for me :)
Julie, I’ve heard that Irish Breakfast is a favorite of the Breakfast teas for many tea drinkers. I have some so I will have to give it a try. I can’t remember if I drank English, Irish, or Scottish Breakfast before but I wasn’t a fan. Thanks for giving me the idea to get those out and to do some taste tests and comparisons. I’ve just become spoiled by the Earl Greys and the bold flavored teas.
If it's a black tea, it usually works for me. That said, if I'm really dragging, and I don't want a cup of coffee, my go-to is a personal blend - Kibbug from my MW-TEA blends: https://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=73860
Mate seems to give me more of an energy boost over the other types
Hello tea friends! Does anyone have a Sagittarius card they want to trade? Trying to help a friend collect a zodiac set and that's the last one needed...
the smell of this tea brewing is absolutely amazing, i want this as a candle or something omg
That is how I feel about white eternal spring!! For me, the scent is so much better than the taste because I'm not that fond of drinking rose flavor but I love the scent! 🌹🥀🌹
Hello Sunday friends. Another crazy weather day. I have an outdoor event tonight so hoping it is done with the madness. Hope everyone is well!
Boy is it hot outside. It's iced tea for the rest of the day. I mixed white peach and Bella luna blue. It's an unique green.
It's too hot outside. I can't wait for this heat to break. I'm just having white peach cold brew. The addition of Bella luna blue sounds interesting. Does it taste good too?
Not too bad. It's still peachy and now a pretty color.
How are you?
Didn't there use to be a button where you could find blends made with a specific tea when you clicked on that teas page?
Do you mean the advance search under the blends tab?
Kind of, I thought I used to be able to click from on the base flavor itself and find blends made with it. Maybe I'm just crazy.
I just tried that the other day because I wanted to know what blend that I had bought has skullcap and nothing came up. Eventually I figured out from my previous order that it is Slumbering Sloth, which won’t fully show up except between 3 and 4am in your time zone. I don’t know if that’s why it didn’t come up or not but I think it should show all blends that have an ingredient you’re looking for. If I’m missing something (quite possible), please let me know.
Does anyone have a Raja Oolong chai to complete my sample? Anything without a lock is up for trade.
Hi Christine, I sent a trade offer. I have one to spare.
Thank you so much!!
I’m continuing with my caffeinated tea sipping. After I drank a cup of Kiss the Butler, I had a lovely cup of Kiss the Housekeeper. Both are great teas. Now I’m having a cup of Tardis by Aun-Juli Riddle which I got in my last order. Boy, is it ever good! I got 2 whole blueberries in this teaspoon, and it tastes delicious. I’m so glad I decided to try it - all those high reviews I read were right on the money.
I like this blend, but I'm definitely partial to throat therapy
Yeah, Breathe well is good but I have a soft spot for throat therapy.
I’m so glad to find this tea as an ex smoker. Also to make my family drink when the wildfires start up and it starts raining ash again.
I got a sample of this a while ago when it was on offer. It seems fine, but it's not really my thing.
Goodnight everyone. I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday. The storm has finally started here and it's coming down in buckets. Hopefully that means good sleeping weather. God bless and pleasant dreams.
Hi, Marlicia. Going to get more of your and daughter's blends, next week. TEA- love, both of your blends,
After making banana bread the other day (adjusted recipe for high altitude) with good results, I got brave today and adjusted my fav keto bagel recipe and gave it a try. They came out perfect!! Yay!! Slowly getting the hang of baking here! And I can have a bagel with my tea in the morning! :) Woot!!
Julie, you inspire with how you’ve embraced and tackled so much change 😘
I finally took a break from some of my favorite caffeinated teas and brewed myself today’s tea. I wasn’t looking forward to it because of the spearmint and eucalyptus, but because it’s the tea of the day, I decided I needed to taste it. I was pleasantly surprised because all of the flavors are very well blended together. I don’t have sinus issues and I’m not sick but I swear that as soon as I took the first sip, it seemed like my sinuses were more open. As I said, I wasn’t congested or stuffy so I was mainly just trying it for the taste. Wow! Knock on wood but I seldom get sick. However, if I do ever get some sort of congestion or whatever, this would be a great tea to sip. I’m sure it’s also good for sore or irritated throats.
I don't like licorice. Or fennel because it tastes like licorice. That said, this tea wasn't so bad. Still made my mouth flinch a little.
Ok. Glad I saved this for bed cuz I have a LOT of old dust up my nose right now
I was a little worried when I saw it had fennel in it, I'm not a fan of licorice flavors. But it's not strong, mostly overpowered by the mint and some other flavor I'm not familiar with. Not bad, and I suffer from allergies most of the year. So I'll be a happy camper if it helps me breathe a little easier tonight.
There's something about certain herbals - chamomile and several of the other medicinal blends come to mind - they feel...fuzzy...in my mouth...like licking a peach or something. Which is weird, because it's tea. It's a liquid.
Good evening all! Today’s tea will be good next time I have a respiratory problem. I hope that everyone had a great Sunday!
And the weekend’s over 😔
I was just sitting here thinking (in the whiny ‘I don’t wanna be a pirate’ voice of Jerry Seinfeld), I don’t wanna work tomorrow!
Hi, Michelle. Just remembers you can buy more tea and toys -food snacks for your Family and the fur babies when you work. :) I'm retired but work part-time, and some days I'm like, you don't have to, but I think of others who are my Incentive to go to work. Take care.
Ugh…vacation over too!
Hi, Dorothy sweetie! I'm sorry Vacation is over but you have CommuniTEA and Blood Family for love and support :)
So true, Woodie! When I’m not looking forward to a workday, I also try to think of the charities I’m now able to make recurring monthly donations to. Makes all the stress worthwhile!
Mmmmm, really liked today’s tea… I think the peppermint is what did it for me.
There are teas that show up on my Favorites list that I wouldn’t choose to be there and are only there because I purchased them. Does anyone know how to edit it? Also, I have seen where other people have tagged some of their teas as something like the most favorite, which helps if I’m wanting to send them a present. I mostly access Adagio from my iPhone but also sometimes from my iPad. Any help is greatly appreciated
Yes, to remove a tea from your favorites list go to the tea, click the heart and it will not be a favorite any longer.
When you go to your favorites page, there is an X that will show up on each tea. Clicking that X will remove it from your favorites list. On my iPhone, I have to tap the tea first, then the X shows up at top left of the tea image.
I remember doing that in the past, clicking the X on my favorites page, but it didn’t seem to go away so maybe I’m missing a step?
Hi, Jan: What I do that works for me is, that there is a wish list button..you press then it takes you off (the product) I think I just posted that. but, it's great to have many other opinions.
Have any of y'all who attend the chats heard if any promos are coming up? I'm about to place a big order and I'm trying to decide whether to go ahead or wait...
I had yesterday’s blend late last night and slept like a rock. Today’s interesting and tasty blend was earlier in the day, as peppermint before bed tends to bother my stomach.
The peppermint overpowers the rest of the flavors.
All I taste is licorice. Gross!
Oops, I just posted my review for tomorrow's tea...under today's review space. I guess the heat is really getting to me.
Hi Ct, hope everyone had a good day. Brewed a few cups of this tea today using my CT packet and a small pouch I had as a 50% off trial. The flavor of the cups varied a bit depending on the ingredients I scooped up. Basically a minty tea with an earthy accent. Very relaxing.
Please be sure to heart the late photos!!
Has anyone tried to cold brew tomorrow's orange tea?
Hi Christine, I'll brew tomorrow and set aside some to chill in a tasting cup. Sounds like a good way to go though with all this heat.
Mines in the fridge now.
Goodnight! I forgot to drink my tea today, so I'll have to save it for tomorrow.
Good night. Long day editing a book chapter and getting our apartment ready for a student to move into. This week is full of faculty inservices. The summer is over! :(.
