Day 26 Slice of Life – Herbal Tea

Why am I writing about herbal tea? It’s getting late, and I don’t have an idea.

It’s bedtime, and I have more work to do before I sleep. (How can I still be so busy!?)

I made myself a cup of tea, and it reminded me of how much my tastes have changed in the last seven years. Before, I very rarely drank herbal tea. Now, it has become a habit. Lately I’ve been using sage and hibiscus for herbal tea.

Who would have thought that sage would be used for more than Thanksgiving dressing? Here I am drinking it as a tea.

A jar of sage from Jordan, given to me by a friend. Hibiscus flowers from the local grocery store.
The bottom of the cup always looks interesting. I wonder what these tea leaves say?

  1. I feel like this is going to be me tonight. I just don’t have an idea for tomorrow’s post! Maybe I’ll go grab some tea and it will inspire me!


    1. Thank you, Lisa,
      Yes, Terje and I were both inspired by tea today, so maybe it will work for you too! Thanks for stopping by.


  2. I was so excited to read your slice. I had a similar day – too tired to write a proper slice and included a cup of peppermint tea in my writing. I hope you get a good night sleep.


  3. I’ve thought about writing about tea. I have a special cup I bought in China last year and still have lots of tea to drink. I’ve been drinking rose tea lately. All this is to say I think herbal tea is a lovely idea for a post. Now I have new tea to try.


    1. Ah, thank you, Glenda. You’re encouraging! Now you also have a reminder about another Slice post to write.


  4. I am not a hot tea drinker, but after reading about this and Terje’s peppermint tea, I may just change my mind. Slices can appear anywhere…even in tea leaves!


    1. Thanks, Leigh Anne. Before I moved to Bahrain, I had never really drunk and enjoyed a cup of tea. Now, I woke up this morning to a pot of pumpkin spice latte black tea made by my husband. I am totally hooked now.


  5. Tiredness seems to be a theme these days. Why not herbal tea as writing inspiration. Paying attention to the small things–that’s a writing prompt in itself.


    1. Thank you, Kim. All the commenters are so encouraging this morning! Maybe with one week to go, I’ll figure out how to do this Slice of Life. 🙂


  6. How delightful, making your own herbal tea! I do like herbal tea but have never tried making my own. It looks lovely!


    1. Thank you, Celia. I think there is nothing to it. Like you I had never tried it, but it’s quite simply putting some leaves or flowers in your cup and pouring on water!
