January 4. Day 4. Tea time
However, I do rather like a cup of what I describe as "girlie tea" which is any one of the hundreds of fruit blends so popular at the moment. For the most part the resemblance between these substances and real tea is strictly coincidental. You add boiling water. That's about as close as it gets.
My pantry is well stocked with brew blends and yesterday the collection grew thanks to a gift of Fruitalicious and Creme Brulee "tea".
This morning I broke open the Fruitalicious which the box told me was a tantalising blend of cranberries, dragon fruit and goji berries which can be served hot or chilled. As you can see, not a tea leaf in sight. Not bad hot but I think I will prefer it chilled.
As for the Creme Brulee, that sounds like one for after dinner. As long as it is sweet and tastes nothing like Earl Grey it should suit me to a tea.
