What a sweet portrait. How about a series of cat + tea photos?

Another pu this morning, what's the world coming to? Must be out of Tung Ting <checks> yup. Must be waiting for spring harvest to finish before buying more <checks> yup.

Haiwan mixed nuggets from the factory floor. Woot I feel like a lucky dog underneath a banquet table. Mixed nuggets off the floor of a good factory apparently are better than most actual shu beengs from others. Thanks brandon, I almost bought this last order if it's what I'm thinking of. Don't you think the size of the 'sample' you sent is a bit excessive!?! :D

PS: I discovered how my wife has been making matcha in the mornings. Surprisingly she listened to me (very rare occurance) showing her how and she's making it correctly. Woot, I finally got the woman drinking tea after 12 years of trying. :D

Congrats tenuki! Now if you can just get her started on the pottery wheel...

In my cup this afternoon more oolong from FLT. I really don't know if I care if this stuff is last year's harvest, it's soooo amazing.

I love tea, I love teaware, and the health benefits are a nice bonus.


Nice set up! Love your kitty too, very sweet.

It takes a girly girl to create truly masculine floral still life with tea. :lol:

Love the photos, everyone!

Drinking Adagio Darjeeling #22. Very refreshing!

I like tea, but am glad it has health benefits too. I came to tea after realizing that too much Diet Coke is a very bad thing.

I had something that *wasn't* shincha today! Weird, huh? It was a lao cong shui xian from Jing Tea Shop. Mmm, good stuff. Not the best in the world I'm sure, but pretty darn good.

I voted for option #2. I'm not a healthy guy, but I've been trying to change that, so I'll take some health benefits if they're there.

Had Schincha Houryoku this AM, my first shincha. It was so very good! 2nd and 3rd infusions were even better! I voted "just love tea"

Decided to brew up some magnolia oolong. Such a dreary day here in So. California.

Having a typical So. Cali "May Gray" day, huh? I'm sure the magnolia oolong solved that! :D

Not to be a smart azz, but this is a bit of a revelation!!! Good luck, Scruff.

Interesting you mentioned this. I was visiting fam this evening. A relative by marriage who is only 47 and recently had a similar revelation almost too late, asked me for tea as a healthy alternative beverage. I hooked him up with some O-Cha Otsuusan bagged that I traveled with. He did not gag, which is one giant step for mankind.

Thus I likely finished my TeaDay with the same. I have some Houjicha from a TeaChatter I might try for a late low caffeine TeaFix.
