Serengetea – A Love Story

As a loving and oh-so-helpful wife, I go the extra mile and buy my own Christmas presents. The really big plus to doing this is that I’m never disappointed in what I get for Christmas . I do this thoughtful act so Rick doesn’t have to trouble himself with going into stores, which he hates, dealing with crowds of people, he’s been known to “mooo” standing in the middle of a crowd, and wondering what on earth to get his wife who has everything she could ever need, and then some. He was at such a loss as to what to get me this year that he actually offered to take me to Replacements after Christmas to buy china. Me!!! The person with enough full sets of china to serve an army, and he’s offering to add to my collection. He said I was to focus on missing pieces or replacing damaged ones, but I knew from the moment he offered that I’d end up bringing home more than either of us bargained for. We didn’t go by the way. I know when to resist temptation.

One of the “gifts” I bought for myself was a tin of Harney & Sons Serengetea tea. I’d not tried this loose leaf blend before and their description sounded interesting enough to make me want to give it a whirl. The story behind the blend is equally intriguing as it’s connected to a show on the Discovery Channel. It’s worth your time to read about the background of this blend on their website. And don’t you just love the graphics on the label?

Since tonight was going to be 55BA59D9-CE78-44FA-8E01-BEA67E2A9247a late tea night, I was very glad that this blend is caffeine-free. To the Rooibos base they’ve added mango flavor, mango pieces, pineapple flavor, and marigold petals. The aroma is enticing, the fruity flavours appealing, and the tea is so smooth it slips right down. Yes, I did add honey to mine. Verdict: I think I’ve found a new nighttime option here.

    Loved your post about buying your own gifts…I do the same and believe it is one of the keys to a long and happy marriage. Thanks for the post about the tea. It sounded delicious and I had to check out their website. Sad to say, I did a little “post-Christmas” tea shopping for myself again. Oh my! No shame at all.

      I love post-Christmas shopping for all kinds of bargains, especially tea. It was great when the kids were little and I could find nice toys for half the price. That was an added bonus to having Christmas for 12 days instead of just the one. Never any shame to be had when it comes to saving money :-).
