[Challenge] 31 Days of Tea | First Week Stats

My first week of tea filled beverages is complete! Checkpoint acquired! 

My year had already been going in a better direction with my will to be positive restored. Yes, mainly because the thought of "new" year, but at least I'm able to feel more positive and less cruddy. I do believe that increasing my tea intake has definitely helped. I've been less lazy [though still a good amount of lazy], I can see my tummy pudge decreasing [along with exercising!], I can start my morning with a lovely taste in my mouf [heh]. It's just been wonderful things. Here's the rundown of what I consumed for days 1-7. 

Day One
Can be read about HERE
But this was just my morning...
I got a little excited for my challenge, and went on to have a cup of tea for each part of my first day. My morning started with Green Tea - Moroccan Mint, Twinings Winterspice Herbal tea for the afternoon, and again to end my night. I enjoyed every cup!


Day Two
The excitement of a new challenge has died down, and the reality of having to get ready for work set in. I only had one cup of tea to start my morning. English Tea Shop's White Blueberry & Elderflower tea kept me in high spirits for the coming work day.
"Crafted in Sri Lanka using age-old techniques, this delicious white tea is full of refreshing fruit flavor. Tastes of juicy blueberry mingle with hints of sweet elderflower and invigorating lemongrass for an uplifting infusion."
Where to buy: World Market

Day Three
Let's keep this tea ball rolling with day #3. Time to experiment and start seeing which teas taste well together. For this morning's cup, I decided to mix my green tea from day one with a detox tea from Triple Leaf Teas. A yummy combination, will blend again. 
"Updating ancient herbal formulas for modern day, Triple Leaf Tea creates delicious healing teas for today's needs. Triple Leaf Detox Tea is a cleansing blend of more than twenty potent Chinese herbs with a hint of lemon for a healthy, delicious brew."
Where to buy: World Market

Day Four
My first fail of the challenge...and so early too. *sigh*. Just brush it off, rinse out a new mug, and let the new leaves steep. Move on to the next day, and next cup of tea!

Day Five
Even though the holidays have come and gone, they're still lively as ever in my tea cabinet. I brought out Twinings Winter Spice tea, and got a little experimental with it. I decided to figure out how yummy tea would taste blended along with hot cocoa, and added a s'mores flavored one I picked up during holidays sales last year. My assumptions were more than correct, and this combination proved to be a winner!
"Create a relaxing moment with Twinings Winter Spice Herbal Tea. Expertly blended with camomile blossoms and the flavours of crisp apples, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves, this herbal tea is sure to warm you with its smooth taste and slightly sweet aroma."
Where to buy: Twinings

Day Six
The holiday discounts had finally gone a bit deeper at World Market, and I could finally get my hands on the ever aloof Peppermint Bark tea from Republic of Tea. Now, in my opinion, ROT is a bit pricey compared to other bagged teas. I digress, because their peppermint bark happened to be my favorite tea of the season! What better way to enjoy it than in my favorite mug, Hank!
"This caffeine-free blend has a wonderful balance of refreshing peppermint, warming cocoa and hints of vanilla. A perfect dessert tea for the holiday season!"
Where to buy: Republic of Tea

Day Seven
Time to refresh and wash off the past week. Time for another detox tea. A loose leaf berry detox from Buddha Leaf tea. The berries are much more flavorful in loose leaf teas than those you find in the little baggie. I enjoyed this cup very much, though there are very small pieces that seemed to slip through my strainer's holes. 
"Antioxidant rich green tea is boosted with powerful super fruits. Blueberries, black currants and strawberries give this cleansing and delicious tonic its delightful punch. The wonderful sweetness of the berries makes it easy to be good. Also great iced."
Where to buy: World Market

First week has been completed, and I'm all tea'd out...SIKE! 
Keep up the good work, Starfish!
How's everyone's "resolutions" going for your first week in?
