Celebrating 31 with Birthday Tea!


Written by:

I’m starting my 31st birthday off with a cup of Birthday Tea from Adagio Teas. This super special blend of black tea, caramel flavoring, sugar sprinkles, vanilla flavoring, and Creme flavoring is a treat I look forward to every year. It’s not available for sale on the Adagio Teas website; they slide a sample pack into your shipment if you order during your birth month (and you already have an account with them).

I love this tea sweetened because it tastes like just a like sweet birthday treat. The caramel, vanilla, and cream flavors compliment the black tea nicely.

As for turning 31…well, it’s strange being IN my 30s, but I’m excited to find out what this year has in store for me. I want to make friendship, family, community, and my health a priority this year. Becoming part of the community where I live and finding friendship is terrifying to me, and I don’t really know where to begin. But, I’m already off to a good start for health and family. I have a doctors appointment today (who schedules doctor appointments on their birthday?), and Jon, Oliver, and I are going to the fair tonight!

Going to the fair is one of my birthday traditions (as well as drinking Birthday Tea). Do you have any birthday traditions?

    HEY Jackie, Happy Birthday! My last birthday was my 60th one. I don’t remember that much about that day. I’m pretty sure I had a cup of coffee. I do that every morning, so…
    But I met your dad , Barb, my sister and Jamey and Jon the following Saturday for pizza. That was good. Probably almost as good a a corntato.

      I’d say any day that starts with coffee and ends with spending time with family while eating pizza is definitely as good as, if not better than, a corn tater!

Hello, my name is Jackie. I’m a thirty-something mother of a rambunctious toddler from a small town in Michigan. When I’m not toddler-wrangling, I’m often seeking refuge from life’s most chaotic moments in a cup of hot tea. I also love getting lost in stories—both in books and virtually. I enjoy speculative fiction the most, and I am especially eager to read fantasy novels and horror novels. When I’m feeling especially indulgent (usually after everyone in the house has gone to sleep), I like to dive into video games and explore the sprawling worlds in Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect.
