Celebrate the Moms in Your Life with Tea Crystals!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re anything like me you’re probably wracking your brain over what to buy her now, when you still haven’t even sent her Christmas present OR her birthday present, though it’s been sitting on your dresser forever. Might I offer a suggestion? How about Pique Tea’s Mother’s Day Box?

For $29, the Mother’s Day Box includes:

  • 2 variety pack cartons of Tea Crystals (which includes their Sencha, Mint Sencha, Jasmine, English Breakfast, and Earl Grey teas)

You don’t even have to go to the post office, so hurry! Go here and send one to your mom!

Now, I realize that my mother is already contemplating writing me out of her will any day now on account of I’m stockpiling her presents in my closet, so I’m hoping to buy a little time by momentarily appealing to her ego…

Hot and Cold for Coconut Tea

Actually, my feelings about Coconut Tea from Adagio Teas are lukewarm, which coincidentally is the temperature that I preferred this tea. It took experimenting with my entire 8 oz. sample bag of Coconut Tea in one day to figure that out though. It’s not that I dislike the tea, I just felt that Adagio has better flavored teas than this. Or, in other words, on a scale of Valentine’s Day Tea (which I didn’t like) and Lemon Soleil Tea or Caramel Tea (which I’m over the moon about), it falls somewhere in the middle.

Lemon Soleil Tea in One Word: Happiness

Lemon Soleil Tea in a Bunch of Words:

Last weekend it was near 40 degrees (Fahrenheit), which is generally considered “balmy” this time of year for most northerners. Except it was a soggy and sleety 40 degrees, which somehow changes entirely how 40 degrees actually feels. It tends to seep in through sweaters and jackets and make your body feel heavy and your bones hurt even though it’s not really that cold. Then your body starts to tell you that you need to crawl back in to bed and cozy up next your significant other’s warm, napping body and doze off. Except, I hate sleeping. Truthfully I do because it’s so time consuming. (Does this make me weird?) So, I did the next best thing, which was root around in the box of Adagio Tea that had just been delivered to my apartment for something that would fill me with warmth.

These Fandoms are Just My Cup of Tea

Doctor Who Tea

Hello again Love-A-Thon-ers! I would hope by now you already know I love books, but did you know that I also love getting swept up in stories found beyond the pages of a book as well? I’m talking video games and television shows! I’ve compiled a post of mugs featuring some of my favorite fandoms once before (Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Supernatural), but that barely scratched the surface. Here are a few more series that are just my cup of tea.

Earl Grey Lavender Tea is a Fickle Fellow

During college, I had a waxing interest in the Steampunk subculture– not to the point where I wore Steampunk-inspired garb– but I did have a handful of Steampunk bands loaded onto my iPod. Abney Park was my favorite. I also frequented Steampunk blogs, and it was through them that I discovered a webcomic called Wondermark by David Malki !. The comic wasn’t really Steampunk, although it did make the occasional reference:
