Happy Birthday Sarah!

I didn't get around to tea day yesterday as I had a final so I spent most the day at school studying.

But I have had each of those flavors in a tea, to some extent, but I am not sure I have had a tea that had every one, although I have gotten close to several teas having 3 or 4.
