happy little things #6

 hello and happy monday! i am on my way back from a girl's weekend up in lake tahoe. will share a bit of our weekend later this week.
 it was brought to my attention (thanks emily!) that this month is national tea month! who would have thought. i am a HUGE tea drinker. i drink about 3 or 4 cups of it a day. growing up i had a friend who's mom was really big into tea and that is when my love of tea began. i love all sorts of tea and especially love a good glass of iced tea with lemon on a super hot day!

i switch up the brands every so often and have just recently gotten really into herbal tea. right now i am currently loving these. add a bit of honey and your golden. i also love green tea which is always a classic go to.
 for christmas my cousin's gave me a little mix that smells heavenly and once i fix my tea diffuser, the chain broke :(, i can finally try it! i can't wait.

what is your favorite tea?

  1. I love tea as well! My favourites are Twining's Lady Grey (I'm drinking it right now!:), Summer Pudding and Rhubard & Cream. That honey vanilla camomille one looks lovely as well!

  2. Ohhhh, I am a tea fan. I am always up for a cup of Earl Grey but my favourite is Healtheries 'Be Merry' tea. part of their Be _____ (energised, well, sleepy ect..) range. It taste like Christmas in a cup!! So yummy! I drink it year round seeing as Christmas isn't actually in the winter here...

    The Vanilla one you have looks yum! :)

  3. Haha this post was made for me! I don't even drink coffee I am that much of a tea lover! My (French) husband teases me for being so typically English.

    Every morning begins with a cup of Earl Grey with a little milk and no sugar. And pretty much every evening a mug of Pukka bedtime tea to help me wind down. In between it might be cinnamon, liquorice, green, raspberry - whatever!

    I LOVE your owl caddy and vintage mug by the way!

  7. i also drink tea several times a day, and spend the rest of the day peeing... worth it? probably. my favourite teas right now are david's tea loose leaf mother's little helper and sweet dreams. let's have a tea party! <3

  13. I do drink peppermint tea, but have to admit I don't really like it :). And for a woman who doesn't drink tea, I sure make a lot of it :D - Hubby LOVES his tea, has to be Yorkshire tea, milky, with one sugar - he says I make it better than anyone else, I think he just doesn't like to make his own, hee hee xox

  15. Any tea by mightly leaf if the bomb diggidy. It's pricey, but it's worth it for the quality!

  16. Honey vanilla chamomile is one of my favourite teas! It just has such a nice flavour. I can't drink chamomile while I'm pregnant so I am really missing it!

    I also love strong jasmine green tea, and the occasional black tea with a tiny bit of milk.

  17. i love the echinacea immune tea from yogi! even when i don't need an immune boost, i just like how it tastes! and i love the mightly leaf logo. it is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  18. First off, I LOVE your tea mug! It's so cute! :]

    Is the Honey Vanilla Tea as wonderful as it sounds? I've only tried a few of the Celestial Seasonings flavors, and so far my favorite is the Apple Cinnamon. :]

  20. yummmmmm tea! My favorite is Mighty Leaf's Orange Dulche. Luckily our Marshall's has it pretty often for only like $6! I usually put a little bit of cream in it and it's delightful :) I also had a great blueberry roibus(spell?) that a friend sent me from Africa this summer. Sadly, it's gone :(

  23. I tried Bombay Chai recently and it was so great. I definitely drink more coffee then tea but I'd like to change that.

  24. I don't know if you like cinnamon type tea, but Bengal Spice tea is good, especially when it is cold or rainy out. It has cinnamon, black pepper, and a hint of vanilla... there are some other flavors in there too. I have yet to put milk in it, but it might make a good chai drink. It's by Celestial Seasonings. I love it... maybe you will, too.

  25. I absolutely love sleepytime tea! It's my favorite, but I haven't tried a celestial that I haven't liked! :)

  26. I am a complete tea junkie. Actually I might need to seek out a 12 step program. My very favorite brand is Republic of Tea. Their apricot decaf is too die for, but I am recently obsessed with the wild blueberry black tea and passion fruit papaya. The only ones I don't love are the hibiscus teas.

    If you are into tea I recently watched a really good documentary on Netflix about tea called All In This Tea.

    Thanks for this post it gave me some new ideas.
