Cranberry Breeze Herbal - Simple Loose Leaf

I tried to get a good picture of this one, but the lighting isn't so great in my bedroom. This is my tea for the evening. It's one of my selections in my Simple Loose Leaf April subscription box. This is cranberry breeze herbal. The infusion is a beautiful dark rose color. It tastes like cranberry, but it has enough cherry to it that it's not too tart. This is the third night in a row that I've had it now, so obviously I quite like it. I'm blogging from my phone, so it's a little tricky. (Plus, I really wanted to try that out.) This, though, means that I'm not writing much.

Long Time No Post

Immortality Tea
Okay, it hasn't been that long, but it has been a little while. Sorry, I've been under the weather and life has been more than catching up with me. I've been drinking a lot of tea, and even taking some pictures, but I haven't been writing much about it. I will try to be better.

I shattered the beautiful clear ForLife NewLeaf mug that I was using for photographs so you could see the infusions I was drinking. Oops. I hit it with a pillow on accident and it fell off my table onto the heat vent. Yes, that meant glass everywhere. I wasn't 100% sure I liked the mug other than for pictures.
Shamrocks and Shenanigans

I replaced it with a white ForLife Curve mug like I had before. I like the weight a lot better, and I wasn't completely sold on the silicone lid/infuser holder that came with the NewLeaf mug. It seemed to hold scents from various teas if I wasn't careful with it. The Curve mug just isn't quite as nice for pictures.

Moroccan Mint
I did recently get a whole bunch of tea I ordered from the internet delivered to my house. I was gone for a few days and many, many packages showed up. I look forward to sharing them with you. Two different subscription boxes (although one is a February box for a subscription I have signed up for, and not a new month's box.) Tea from China, which is a replacement for an order that went into a post office and never came back out. Tea delivered from Boulder. I'm a happy camper.

So to tide you over, here are some pictures of tea I have taken in the past week and a half. (You can tell when I had the NewLeaf mug and after I shattered it.)
