Day 67: Whittard's Spiced Fruits

I mentioned earlier that I am beginning to run out of teas in my house.  I do have a whole sampler of Whittard's teas that was given to me as a gift, so I've got a few days out of those still!

I was making a card for a friend who is in hospital, and decided I'd share some of the joy of tea whilst doing it.  I've seen these cards before, with the little slot in them for a tea packet, so I decided to make my own, and was quite pleased at the results!  I spent a lovely hour with pens and paper and colours and craftiness and then slotted in a tea packet and away went the card!

My absolute favourite of this sampler is the Spiced Fruits. It tastes just as it ought to...fruity, but not overwhelmingly so or with a thick aftertaste, as many combination-fruit teas have; and with just a little tang, as though someone added chili powder and lemon, or some sort of odd addition like that. It's very different, but it works!

My walk today was to the train, from the train, to someone's house to look at a camera, back to the train, back home!  I was pretty exhausted actually! Those hills in Edinburgh get fairly steep, especially when carrying around my camera and lenses on my back.  I was glad to get home and chillax for a bit before going out to see a film in the evening.

Walk length: 1 hour

  1. Love your cards!!!! Maybe someday I will get around to making them. Glad you are liking that green mango -- definitely a favorite of mine too. finally got the two teabags in the mail on Thursday -- we'll see when they arrive. Did I give you a flowering teaball? It will work perfect in your coffee press.
