PULCHRITUDIE 17oz Elephant Mug


I am product testing again.  And I got these adorable elephants items. 

I love this mug!  There is a holding spot for your tea bag...or cookies.






PULCHRITUDIE Elephant 17oz Ceramic Coffee Tea Mug, Hand Painted






This is a great mug.  It's super cute, lightweight and fun to use.  

This mug is on Amazon for less than $12.00, but as a product test I got it free.  It's so fun to use.

Wild Blackberry, Ohio Tea Company




Ohio Tea Company gives you a free 1/2 ounce of tea once a month when you sign up for their news letter.  One of my samples was the Wild Blackberry black tea.



Black tea | Blackberry leaves | Cornflower petals | Mallow blossoms | Natural flavors



In the afternoon at work I try to enjoy a healthy snack.  Today I enjoyed cheese and apples with my blackberry tea.  This is a really good tea.  I can totally taste the blackberry fruit in it.


This is a really good tea!!!  Ohio Tea Company is rocking these tea flavors!!!

Bird and Blend Tea, Sangria




Bluebird tea is not Bird and Blend. It is one of my favorite tea companies.  Sadly, it is in Europe, so I don't order from them very often.  My dream is to have them come to the states.


Hibiscus, apple pieces, rosehip, cardamom, lime peel, orange peel, pineapple pieces (pineapple, sugar), desiccated coconut, natural flavouring.


I tried this tea, it was a bit tart and really fruity and light tasting  I was not a fan.  The flavors were good, but just not for me.  I find myself moving away from the fruity, herbal flavors tea and moving more towards fruity teas that are added to a black tea.  

The fruity, herbal flavors are good, but just not what I want as deeper, richer flavors that come from being mixed with a black tea.


I may try mixing this herbal tea with a pain black tea like an English Breakfast.   Have you tried mixing teas?  I recommend it.  Teavana really started me on mixing teas.  They showed me it was okay to mix teas and flavors. 


I love this mug!!  It is a mix of me and my cat, Earl Grey.


This my Earl Grey....he is a wonderful cat!

Ohio Tea Company- Vintage Earl Grey


Here I am with my Earl Grey (cat) 



I love Ohio Tea Company and all there great teas.  I am trying to keep track of the teas I try, so that I know what I like and what I don't, etc.




Look at all these great teas!!!  So many great black teas!!!






Black tea | Rose petals | Lavender | Rosemary | Bergamot and rose oil


I decided to try this tea, since I love Earl Grey teas. But, sadly this one was too bergamot forward for me.  I liked the rose and lavender in the tea, but bergamot was too overwhelming.

This is a tea I will pass on, but again, I can't love all of Ohio Tea teas.

World Market, Coconut Black Tea





This is a nice black tea, but it falls a bit flat for me.  I taste the coconut, but I wish it were stronger and more dominant.  I only got one cup of tea out of this tea bag.

This is a black tea, so you want to heat your water to around 212 degrees and steep for 3-5 minutes. 


Since this a bagged tea, I used my squirrel tea bag holder to keep the string from falling into the cup.

Ohio Tea Company, Cream Vanilla




black tea, sunflower petals, calendula petals, jasmine blossoms, and natural flavors

This tea reminds me a a creme soda.  IT is crazy how much it tastes like that soda I had when I was s kid.  First sip took me right back to my childhood!

This is a really nice tea. The flavors mesh really well together.

New Tea Cup, Charm House China




I was at my favorite antique shop here in Orrville, Journey in Time, with my parents.  I find little treasurers there all the time.  This time I found this adorable tea cup with purple johnny jump ups (wild pansy).






Sometimes you just need to drink out of a tea cup.
