I'll be having mine when I get back to work after lunch.

I never got around to drinking yesterday's tea as I made the tea from the day before instead. I wasn't a big fan of the oolong tea.

We used silicone pot holders and it still would NOT budge. The vice grips were a last resort!

Ya, Al used vice grips on today's tea container, too! :(
I really enjoy this tea :)

I enjoyed today's tea too. Wasn't overly crazy about yesterday.

Do not love Day 6. Coco chai rooiboos. I rarely like this type of tea. I could only do a couple sips.

I didn't mind yesterdays. I probably wouldn't buy it tho. So far I would buy Vanilla Chai and maybe Organic Detox.

Having a cup of English Breakfast now. (already have a tin of this)

I missed yesterday's tea so I will enjoy it tonight. I am going into The One of a Kind Show so I will bring a travel mug of today's tea.

The English breakfast is a really nice staple tea from David's. I always have a tin of it on hand.

This morning is cocomint cream. It isn't bad. Has a bit of a toothpaste smell I find. But it is quite pleasant.

Like last year Tori and I are pretty much opposites!

Coco Chai roobois I enjoy a lot and couldn't do more than 1 sip of English breakfast!

Cocomint cream is light but I like the flavor.

You and Smiles are tea twins and I am definitely the polar opposite! One year all the teas I hated were dropped off at her house and she loved it! :lol:

I almost couldn't get the tin open. It took squishing it with vice grips and then the rubber gloves.

I didn't really enjoy today's tea. It reminded me of the times I've accidentally rubbed coconut scented sunscreen on my lips, and then licked it off. I still have enough for a second mug full, but I won't be drinking it.

Drinking today's Genmaicha, and the smokey/toasted taste is a bit weird for me.

I disliked that one last time it was in the calendar. I'm not even brewing it this year! Yuck!

i steeped the oolong longer and I quite like it. I just finished the tin. I probably wouldn't buy it (and it's ridiculously expensive) but once I steeped it longer I liked it.
