Yes, though my cabinets are stocked with tea, I find myself somewhat "tea poor" today, which is why no review. However, I have some blooming teas that haven't been reviewed yet, and tea on order, so Monday I'll regain my momentum.
Until then, I just have to say - it's a sad thing when I wandered about the Las Vegas casinos for two days earlier this week, and did not come across even one shop selling tea (bagged or loose) to buy. Sure, there were a few coffee places that sold tea by the cup, but no where to purchase tea to brew elsewhere.
I honestly thought that surely, in a larger city, it would be fairly easy to find tea along the strip. I can't be the only tea-lover to visit Vegas! But no, and unfortunately, we didn't have the time or navigational knowledge to go hunting places off the well-beaten paths.
Not that I think anyone in Vegas probably reads this blog, but if you are from Las Vegas, and stumble across this somehow, please consider opening a tea shop somewhere along or close to the strip...somewhere easy for tourists, like myself, to not only get a much-needed dose of teafreshment, but also some good quality "souvenier" tea to bring back home. If there is a tea shop I missed, well...I wish it had been better advertised. It was one of many things that disappointed me about Vegas - the unavailability of good tea. I did use the in-room coffee pot and some Indian Nimbu bags I had brought, but as we all know, coffee pots do not make good tea, and I gave up quickly. I really will buy an electric kettle just for traveling before I go anywhere again.
More on Monday...
