October Sipdown Prompt – a tea you can’t wait for to be gone

I had planned a different tea for that prompt but the other tea grew on me and was quite good today. I had to pick a new one! Ha ha!

This isn’t terrible, it simply isn’t what I thought it would be. I was expecting rich black tea and this is more like a darjeeling or a sheng puerh. Ashman loved it, though, so I just made a big batch of it to serve as his breakfast tea that I make ahead for him so he can just pour it in a mug and heat it each day since he leaves for work very early.

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about fourteen years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
