For An Elegant Cuppa: Twining’s English Afternoon Tea Review

That first cup told me one important matter had been resolved: this brew is absolutely, one-hundred percent suited to a quiet afternoon cuppa, whether paired with dainty tea sandwiches or a window gazing out on snowy parking lots and dangling icicles.

The 18 Best Fantasy Novels of 2015-2020

The same intricate worldbuilding that enthralls one reader will spark an outburst by another bemoaning the novel’s insufferable pace. Further, the task of composing a best of list is extra tricky when applied to the fantasy novel as the lines between that genre and sci-fi have become so blurred in recent years that many curators metaphorically throw up their hands and lump the zany tales together.

It Was Supposed to Be About Being Well-Loved

Love is a risk every single time. A worthy one. One I have by His grace been able to go all-in on. When we love, we jump. We risk it all for the hope, the promise, the forever. It feels like a miracle to be able to do this when you have been hurt mentally, emotionally, and physically.

There’s a reserve within me with which only He could have gifted me.

When You Need a Wakeup: Taylors of Harrogate Scottish Breakfast Tea Review

This tea, like all breakfast blends I’ve tried, is a bold, dark, rich black tea. The flavor is slightly reminiscent of a cross between Billy Tea – the trail brew of Aussie ranchers – and English Breakfast. The high caffeine content and intense flavor are going to wake you up if caffeine affects you. It doesn’t happen to do much to me, but I believe this would definitely do it for anybody looking for a “wake me up” cuppa.
