At lunch today, played in the TeaPass box & tried the passion fruit tea by Argo. It was waaaay too sweet for my taste. After an interesting day, decided to end it w/a familiar friend of hot cinnamon spice. Ain't nothing like a good friend! :wink:

BTW, Witches Brew... enjoyed your photos today. You'll have to share more!

I drink it because I enjoy it AND because of the health benefits. It's just another part of a delicious & health diet. It was a dislike of coffee and the associated coffee-breath as well as an interest in the healthy aspects of tea that first turned me into a tea drinker, but now I love drinking and trying and enjoying all types of it!

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


Yes it really did help. Tastes good cold too. You think you liked it enough to purchase?

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.

:)


Noooo, it's my toy!! * hovers protectively around the as yet unpurchased potters wheel *

You know, you might like winter harvest better than spring, they are different. I like fresh most of all, but given the choice I like winter gao shans, and spring baozhongs.

Its nice to have tea again.

Two bowls of matcha (hibiki premium) this morning. Several cups of crummy iced tea at work. Some TKY with dinner and now some Yutaka Midori.

Your journey has been fruitful if you are looking for something Japanese!
