I’m dealing with a migraine that at this point has stretched into a second day. I’m also starting a few days of nearly fat-free eating to kind of “reset” my stomach and digestion. But when I feel like this, I really just want some comfort food. My best attempt at a solution that keeps both of these things in mind is to have a cup of tea with honey or sugar if that’s what I want!

I noticed this time how much more like a green tea this is compared to every other black tea I’ve had, both in flavor and in the scents of the dry and wet leaf. I used 2.3g for 200ml of boiling water. Since I’m feeling pretty rotten, I’m not going to be spending my tea time analysing and reporting. So besides the green tea-ness I’m keeping this to the basics.
1st steep: This was for 2 minutes, and was a honey color in the cup. I added honey to it, but I ended up feeling that I lost a good bit of the delicate flavors. But I really like honey, so it’s not all bad.
2nd steep: This steep was 3 minutes, and was more of a light orange color. This cup got raw sugar added to it. That seemed to be a nice touch and kept all the flavors more noticeable. Beyond that I didn’t think about it, but just found it a pleasing cup to drink as the kids played.

Now I’m wondering what to drink next!

I’m an American-Australian living in Sydney with my Aussie husband, very active toddler girl and bouncing baby boy. I need tea to get me just to Lil’ Man’s morning nap, let alone the rest of the day. I’m a newbie to the world of pure teas (and loving every sip of it!), having delighted in flavored teas and blends for years. The hardest part seems to be getting the teas to Australia without exorbitant shipping costs.
