WTH? PLASTIC is so CHEAP, they use it instead of PAPER?
Okay, I think I'm going to have to test my Teabags. Its one of the reasons I keep loose leaf around.
Summer is coming. And I want to make that Ice Tea like my "Grandma" use to make. I never seen anyone make tea like that before. But she would put it in a Large Tea Jar, and let it sit in the sun.
Maybe its just my Memory, but I don't think I recall Ice tea ever tasting as good as it did when its made out in a Sunny day.
You know what would be cool? I think I might set up a Tea Dispenser outside with Disposable cups. Its such a shame that folks don't do that anymore. Not even Shops do that anymore.
You know? If there is any Audio shows this summer? Man would I love to cook breakfast for everyone and make Strawberry Ice tea! If there is ONE thing I miss so BAD about California? It's how the Produce tasted there. From salad bars, to the fruits. And the TEA OMG!!!
I have YET to taste something this refreshingly good. Clear. Crisp Distinct flavors with a strawberry so aromatic it was like picking them at the patch.
There was no sugar in it. I think she used rhubarb, Grapes, and something else. It was just liquid Heaven.
It had what I think is a peppermint like flavor, but it was not mint. You could taste the Black tea, and it had the leaves floating in it.
(Not actual tea, but the image looked nice)
Here are a few I have on hand.
Trying to cut down drinking Coffee every day since summer is coming. This can of Pinky Up. Not sure where I got it. But My lord does it smell good! Taste is not that bad either, but its a bit of a conundrum to what its flavor is going after. I think it smells better then it tastes.
Another purchase I don't remember. I have not drank tea in a long time. But its been in the cupboard for a while.
This is the next to try after I stop being lazy using the teabags.
The "Pinky" tea looks like this.
I can't get over how good this tea's aroma is. Even when I don't make it. I stop and have a sniff just cus. Yea, its major Homo suspicion points but whatever. Don't care.
I've had the crud for about a week or so.. THIS TEA is a GIFT from Mother Gaia and Captain Planet.
This mixed with a bit of the rose tea above has been my love affair for the last week. And now? Feeling better.
It sure made the week go by a bit easier
Russian Caravan tea is a very interesting blend of Chinese black or green tea and Lapsang Souchong. Call me crazy but I mix a little of this with a strong English style black tea, like PG Tips, and enjoy it with milk and a little sugar. This way the smoke is in the background a bit.
We've been drinking an Indian Nilgiri tea lately (hot) that I quite like. The precise tea I've been buying is from a local purveyor, but it may be identical to this "organic" selection from Upton Tea (same source estate). Excellent if you like a strong, flavorful Indian tea -- but not quite as smack-you-in-the face as an Assam. Inexpensive compared to a better-quality Assam, too.
When Søren Kirkegård (1813-1855) lived in Copenhagen a tea shop was founded. It still exists: www.perchs.dk (in Danish, English and German).
All the tea I drink comes from this shop. It's the biggest tea shop in the Nordic countries. Take a look.
Schud je smaakpapillen wakker met Earl Grey Superieur! De theemelange uit China en Ceylon bevat veel tip voor een volle smaak, die nog krachtiger aanwezig is door de rijke hoeveelheid bergamotaroma in deze thee.
Whatever tea I drink, I always return to earl grey. Lets see how this one is.
And some of these because they are nice to use and seem easy to clean:
