Me, a Blogger? And Tea.

Tags

, , ,

I’d like to become a “blog person“. ¬†I’d love to have the time to follow / read more blogs AND to keep mine fresh and exciting on a daily basis (or at least a couple of times a week)!

I think about blogging WAY more than I actually blog. ¬†I’m sure this is the case for a lot of people out there.

I often wonder what people would be interested in reading about…I don’t want to just simply repeat what’s on my Facebook page (eg pictures of orders and upcoming contests etc). ¬†I’d like this to be a little more about my life in general – but would people actually be interested in that? ¬†Does anyone REALLY want to know that despite being a Starbucksaholic (particularly skinny caramel macchiatos and vanilla lattes), I haven’t had ONE latte in the last week? ¬†Not only that, but there were FIVE days in a row that I didn’t even step inside a Starbucks? ¬†Yes it’s true. ¬†But how did it happen? ¬†And why? ¬†It certainly wasn’t planned.

Last Saturday (11th) I had a freebie venti skinny caramel macchiato (free with my rewards membership, yay!). And on Sunday I went on a little road trip to Washington State to do some yarn shopping and I had every intention to sit at the Starbucks in the shopping plaza there, to work on some business stuff for a couple of hours. ¬†But alas, the cafe was closed due to “lobby and restroom issues”. ¬†Instead of scouting out another location, I simply drove home.

And what about the rest of the week? ¬†Conveniently, there’s a Starbucks on campus where I work, but inconveniently, it’s in a separate building and there is no indoor or undercover walkway (UGH). ¬†Well on Monday, it was raining…and I decided I was just way too delicate to venture out in the rain! ¬†Tuesday and Wednesday I was off work, and on Tuesday I decided I was just way too comfy on the couch (making up some orders, of course!). ¬†Wednesday, I went for an AMAZING 2-hour spa treatment, and somehow ended up talking to the esthetician (Harmony – LOVE her name!) about tea. ¬†Well, I am not a tea drinker by any means. ¬†I don’t care for any sort of tea other than Nestea Zero, and Tazo Passion Tea (which is a recent discovery). ¬†Not a fan of green tea, not a fan of Chinese tea, not a fan of “sweet tea”, nope nope nope. ¬†I’ve always found tea to be rather bitter, and I’m not one to add cream/sugar. ¬†Anyhow, Harmony told me about this tea shop in the local mall. ¬†David’s Tea. ¬†She gave the shop (and tea in general) such high praise that I decided it might be worth checking out. ¬†So after my appointment I visited David’s Tea shop, and walked out with a FABULOUS tea thermos, and 5 different flavours of tea (2 herbals and 3 white – gotta start somewhere, and the ones I chose seemed like fairly berry-licious options!)

So yup, Wed night, and Thurs & Fri at work, I drank tea, tea, and more tea. ¬†And I was so pleased with myself that last night when I did actually step inside a Starbucks for the first time this week, I didn’t even feel like a latte! I didn’t want to order a tea either, because I have my “own” tea now…so I had a chocolatestrawberry vivano smoothie. ¬†(OK, it was pretty delicious too!)

If you’re reading this, and you like tea, or are beginning to like tea, let me know what kind of tea you like! ¬†I always like trying out other people’s suggestions. ūüôā
