Day 22, Featuring Justea Purple Rain
It's already day 22 of working from home. I can't believe it has been almost a month. It's been a good month. Different, but good. I hope you are able to find the good in all of this too.
I am fever free, so I am ready to start my day!
Tomorrow is my Uncle Jay's 91st birthday!!! He lived in Kenya for a few years working with his Mennonite Ministry...my mom even lived there with him for a few months.
In honor of my Uncle's birthday and his life in Kenya, I am drinking purple tea- from Kenya!
From the website, "Caffeine: Very Low
Antioxidant Boost: Purple Tea contains more antioxidants than Kenyan green tea with half the caffeine.
Organically Grown: Hand-picked in Kenya. No pesticides or chemicals are sprayed on our tea leaves.
Steeping Instructions: 1 Teaspoon –190°F – 4 mins (for a second cup, re-steep 8 mins)
100% Natural Ingredients: Organic Lemongrass, Kenyan Purple Tea, Hibiscus, Apple Pieces, Rosehips, Natural Passion Fruit Flavour."
This tea is really good. It has great fruity notes. I love hibiscus and this tea blends it so well with the lemongrass, apple and purple tea. There is a tartness to it, but I love it.
I have not figured out the purple tea flavor, but I like this tea! Sometimes when I drink a tea, I can tell by taste if it is an oolong, green, or black tea... and sometimes not, but I have not been able to figure out the purple notes...not yet anyway.
Here I am, below, with my Uncle. You may think he looks familiar. Ever been to Lehman's Hardware in Kidron, Ohio?? He is the founder :)
It was a good day. Work went smoothly, I got new fun tea pot face mask and two visitors.
My friend learned to crochet, just last night, and she made me these adorable tea coasters!!
I love these bright colorful coasters- and I love how they match my tea cups!
Then my co-worker stopped by and dropped some goodies and picked up tea. I am not a hugger, but it's been over a month since I have seen her- I wanted to hug her!! We social distanced and did not hug. It was so fun to see her and catch up a little.
I made her my new tea from Teas & Such, Lemonade Punch.
I hope you are finding joy and giving joy.
