St. Patrick's Day tea

by Lerxst2112 » Mar 16th, '12, 15:31

St. Patrick's Day, for me, has always been a time of quiet reflection. A lot of people wear green, drink green beer, party, and have an obligatory shamrock design somewhere... not for me. I will be having a couple acquaintances over for a small, quiet gongfu session. I was worried about being too "cliche" in serving green tea on SPD, but figure since technically it brews up a pale yellow, I should be okay on that front. :)

What is the rest of the community up to?

During the day: taking care of business
During the Night: wearing green, drinking irish whiskey, and watching irish movies :mrgreen:

This sub-forum is entitled "Miscellany - completely off the topic of tea" :!:

Obviously it has to be Black Tea :lol: :lol:

Here we call it Guinness :idea:

I suppose, John, if I wanted to be truly hokey, I'm sure I'd be able to find a store in Charlotte that carries Matcha... :)
As for the miscellany category - yeah, hindsight tells me this probably could have gone under the 'other tea related' section. Guinness *shudders*

I had a few errands this morning, cat to vet for vaccinations, post office and then off to buy cat food.. then.. once I got home.. It had to be irish breakfast tea today. This is one of my go to teas for the mornings during the work week... but it seemed appropriate. :D I'm inside for the day curled up with my knitting.. working on a fair isle sweater and have one sleeve left.. so want to finish before it gets too warm.

This was the first year in the past few years, I did not have my traditional Matcha on St. Patricks day. Normally on St. Pats I only drink green teas ( maybe slight exception for very green oolongs).
