After youthful experiments with Celestial Seasonings Morning Thunder as well as some of their fruitier blends; when I tea, which usually means rainy days with bunny slippers, it is always Lapsang Souchong.
Nothing like it.
Seattle’s best (or Pete’s) most days.
If I could get a scotch this smokey life would be complete.

“If I could get a scotch this smokey life would be complete.”

When I find it, I’ll let you know. I’m on the same search.

Sandra refuses to allow me to breathe in the house after I’ve had LS.

Don’t you have fireplaces?  Same same, only different.

You could always take up pipe smoking and then ‘fall back’ to LS as a compromise?
I’ll quit inciting domestic strife and instead offer a link to an outfit we ran into in Cloudcroft, apparently national firm but we liked the Cloudcroft shoppe.

Scents so stunningly convincing, use the pull down for the scents, we were dazzled by the Campfire, and they had a leather to die.

We’re not big on scents here in the casita. S doesn’t generally like ‘em, and I get tired of ‘em way too quickly. But leather or campfire smell? I am curious.

That being said, I’m sipping on an LS and am the recipient of some very cute wrinkled-up nose expressions and vociferous complaints ...

Alas, even decaffeinated tea has too much caffeine for me—caffeine gives me migraines and even a couple cups of decaf brings on a nasty one.

I’ve not found a flavorful ‘regular tea’ of decaffeinated nature. They all taste like the teabag (paper). And I’ve only lately been a regular tea drinker (coffee was my thing).

There are times when any caffeine is just too much for me. A little lemon or lime in sparkling water, and I’m happy.
