If we were sipping tea…

The flavour is strong as it first crosses the taste buds but there is no after taste. Would I describe it as a medicinal taste? Maybe a faint one. This morning’s tea is called “Organic Cold 911.” It is a blend of peppermint, apple, eucalyptus, juniper berries, organic orange oil and peppermint oil, I enjoy… Continue reading If we were sipping tea…

It would be just peachy if we were having coffee.

As the title suggests, it would be just peachy if we were having coffee or, in this case, tea, peach tea. I love the look of today’s loose leaf. It has chunks of fruit and bits of leaves. The chunks are both a light tan and a soft orange. These are apple and peach pieces.… Continue reading It would be just peachy if we were having coffee.

Another coffee drinking location to mark as my favourite

At the end of February, to start my virtual coffee post I began describing where I’m having my coffee or favourite places that I have had my coffee. So, today the soft cushions of the sofa await me. I plan to wedge myself into the corner comfortably with my legs pulled up. Over top of… Continue reading Another coffee drinking location to mark as my favourite

Another favourite place to drink my coffee

Feet up on the dashboard with my butt nestled into the passenger’s seat. The sun is low in the sky with the promise of a warm sunny day. The radio can just be heard over the sound of the tires on the pavement and the wind outside my window. The smell of strong coffee, truck… Continue reading Another favourite place to drink my coffee
