I just found out. So for this month, I will drink my way through my stash. Do I have 21 flavours in my tea drawer? We will find out together.

And because I think you’d like to know, I will post a picture. And I will show you my favorite mugs too.

Day 1 (January 11)

Day 1. Peppermint tea is one of my favourite teas. This one is by Celestial Seasonings.

Day 1. Peppermint tea is one of my favourite teas. This one is by Celestial Seasonings.

I drink it HOT and without any milk or sweeteners.

  • I’ve never had this as an iced tea, but I will try that today.
  • I HAVE added a hot chocolate packet to this tea and it is YUMMY. That’s how I am drinking it right now.
  • This owl mug is my latest acquisition. I like the turquiosey colour scheme, the owls, and the Bible verse (Joshua 1:9) that is in Spanish.

The verse in English is as follows:I’ve commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged! I am the Lord your God, and I will be there to help you wherever you go.

The 21 Teas I tried and the recipes and crafts I made are after the jump.
