Honey in tea, not for me

A gal from church makes honey. I was excited to support her business so I bought a bottle. . I really wanted to like honey.  I've heard so many good things about eating... or in my case drinking... local honey.
I tried it several times in different kinds of teas, but I just found it too sweet.
 
I have a co-worker who DID NOT find it too sweet.  He downed the honey in about a week.  It did not go to waste. 
 
I really wish I liked it...

Smith- Kandy black tea



Happy 45th to me. My sister and her family in WA sent me flowers for my special day.  They were gorgeous!!

Mymom then sent me a fun card ...she made it!  She also gave me some fun tea. 

I love Smith tea. I had not tried this one before that I could recall.  This tea is a nice black tea, it does have a bold Ceylon note though.  I did not have milk, but I wish I would have had some on hand.  I think milk would have been a nice addition to the boldness of the tea.  I like flavored black teas, but if I have a more "straight" black tea I love to add milk.  if you want to be English proper with your tea... add your milk first, then your tea.

Bluebird Tea birthday package


 
 
Last year I treated myself to some amazing tea from England.  I love love love Bluebird tea!!!  It's become my new favorite tea company.  Its even taken the place of Teavana for me. Why you ask? Well, for multiple reasons:
1. The flavors are just as good if not better
2. More variety  of teas
3. Teavana is no longer in business
4. The price is good too...BUT, the draw back is shipping! Shipping kills me.
 


I ordered a large variety of tea, and so far I am loving them!!  They have some blends I only drink cold brewed, grapefruit for example.

Ever want to try Bluebird tea and want to split the shipping with me, let me know. 😃 

Also, be their friend on Instagram and Facebook, see the photos they post about their teas.  its inspiring, yes inspiring.  I wish they had a store in the states.  I told them if they brought a store to Ohio I'd  run it for them.
