Book Review: The Witches' Runes

I know that it has been a while since I have posted a review. Been having some issues with concentration and memory so reading a long book has been a problem.  Apparently not the case with shorter works such as this one.

I have always been interested in Runes but frankly never had the time or studiousness to read hoards of books to learn the different systems.  Thank goodness, Ms. Corby already has done the reading and condensed everything down to simple system that is a perfect starting point on what might turn out to be a lifelong journey.

In THE WITCHES' RUNES, Ms. Corby covers all the bases to get a person started such as condensed history, the meanings of the individual runes, ethics, how to do a reading and even how to make your own set of runes.  Though being a klutz, I would probably purchase a set from Ms. Corby and how to do so is included in the book.

I enjoyed reading this book and I have plans for it in the future once I get a set of runes.  I think that any of my readers that are interested in divination would find this book has its place on the shelf.

Review: Adagio Tea Advent Journey Days 13

Our tea for the day isn't really a tea.  Instead it's a herbal tinsune which is basically herbs steeped in boiling water.  For the most part, I am not a big fan because I want my caffeine but there are a few exceptions such as chamomile.  And this beautiful Peppermint which has that wonderful minty aroma and it's oh so refreshing.

I will have to pick up a box of this tea because I love a good mint tea after a heavy meal.  Perks me right back up.

I will be back tomorrow with a new tea to try.  Be sure to stop by.

Review: Adagio Tea Advent Journey Days 11 & 12

You know, I am not really sure just how I got so far behind we are about up to date.  Just one more of the double posts unless I manage to get off track again.  Thank you so much for staying with me on this journey with it's unexpected side trips.

The next stop on our journey is one of my favorite teas, Wuyi Oolong.  This is a rock oolong with the beautiful long leaves.  This is another tea where it is almost impossible to find a decent cup in a tea bag.  I quite enjoyed this oolong.  It was lightly floral with a full bodied, rounded taste.  There is a lingering aftertaste of minerals.  This tea will become a must buy for me.

My next tea is also right in my ballpark as Yunnans happen to be one of my favorite black teas.  They are known for their bright peppery flavor.  Adagio's Golden Yunnan is an excellent example of this variety of tea.  I found it to have the rich flavors of stone fruit, tobacco and pepper.  It's so smooth that this is a black tea that is really easy to drink without any additives.  This is actually a tea that I plan on picking up in loose leaf because I can see myself drinking it by the pot.

Now be sure to come back tomorrow for another cuppa tea..
