Trying Out Tea...

So, tea. When I was little I would drink tea even though I really didn't like it 'cause I thought it made me so cool to drink tea.
Eventually I got some sense knocked into me and decided that since I didn't like I shouldn't drink it :P

Anyway, recently seeing all of Kim Klassen's awesome tea photos has officially inspired me to try tea again!
Herb teas in general, and my mom brought home a box of assorted herb teas for me the other day! There are 6 different flavors:

Pomegranate Pizzazz ~ sweet & tart taste of pomegranate
I Love Lemon ~ Refreshing blend with lots of lemon
Mint Medley ~ Blend of cool garden spearmint & peppermint
Orange & Spice ~ A zesty blend of orange and spice
Cozy Chamomile ~ Calming chamomile for quiet moments
Sweet Dreams ~ Relaxing blend of chamomile & mint

And I admit I am a little timid to try a few of them (I have never liked trying new things), but I will try them all eventually.
I have already tried the mint medley and I thought it tasted like the dentist. So I think I just have to get used to the taste.

Textured with Kim Klassen's Daisy and Isobel.

My question for today is do you like tea?
If so, do you have a favorite kind?

And a new fabulous link up, Tuesday Muse hosted by the lovely Nancy over at A Rural JournalI have missed her weekly linkys and am so glad she has decided to do them again ;)

I admit I'm not a tea drinker, but I'm trying *key word, trying* to come off of coffee!

ohhh my I love tea. Like seriously, I drink some everyday if not several times a day.
...however I'm not a fan of mint either, so I would suggest not trying to become accustomed and just changing to something else XD

You may have read my post about herb tea. Not a fan. But I'm trying.

Thanks so much for joining in today Yolanda. xo

I used to enjoy standard Bigelow tea with a little sugar. Never a big fan of all the different flavors (a memo my family apparently never got because I have been gifted with oodles of flavored teas). Now I prefer coffee - more specifically french vanilla cappuccino.

Well done on the textures.

Love you cup and the shot that you got of it. Hope the other ones taste better , not like the dentist, or I am afraid that you will have the same experience as the first time around.

old fashioned Liptons tea

Beautiful mug.....perfect for tea. Mine would be Trader Joe's Red Rooibos Chai.

I love coffee more than tea, but in the afternoons I've a few hours of Me-Time and with that there's always a cup of tea :)

Lovely blog, and I've enjoyed my visit... so I'm your newest follower from the Netherlands.

Nice to meet you and until next time,
