Out here in the 'burbs we actually do have one excellent (from what I'm told) sushi place. I've only tried a cucumber/ginger one, which was great, but I don't think I can pass any judgment on sushi based on that. I really can't bring myself to try the sushi with raw fish. (I was a bio major and sometimes ignorance really is bliss.) :lol:

Now Indian food, authentic Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Spanish...Those are a whole different story. Pure love.

No tea yet today. I spent the day taking the kids to my brother-in-law's organ concert. I was hoping reading TeaDay today would provide some inspiration on the tea to choose.

I just finished the overnight cold brew leaves from last night. It was actually very nice. It's going to be a great summer lunch drink. I have a nifty 3-piece tea glass with built in screw on metal mesh strainer and screw on top similar to the one shown below that I brewed it in, perfect...

Actually they are pretty thick double walled and very much thermos style. Handles hot water no problem.

I was thinking more ... as in the leaves would keep brewing if it were hot and you didn't remove them, right?

My last brew today was Fu Sou from FLT. I pushed it three steeps and it was still good.

Oh, right, you can use them as shown ( for cold/slow brewing or fast drinking ) or you can put the leaves in the space between the top lid and the mesh basket. Then you put the hot water in and turn it upside down to brew. After it is done brewing you turn it upright and remove the two lids together to drink. The tea leaves are kept safe in their little container until next brew.

Sorry for the late reply, Sal. The tea is from Silk Road Teas.

Late, early ... on your schedule it all seems to be the same!

Thanks for the info, EW.

I love sushi. And would probably prefer it to most other meals... but the sushi place near me has a crummy selection of tea, so I haven't really had the opportunity to have a nice sushi and tea combination..
