Spice Quest Episode XII: A long time ago in a tasting note far away…

…a wizened-up, weary Jedi clerical worker was freezing in her hundred-year-old office, buried under a pile of second semester paperwork and 1099 proof forms, barely breathing out of only one nostril, and was delighted to dig through the rubble and find one tiny packet of Turmeric Amber Sun imported from the spice mines of the far West…

OK, enough. Sorry.

Courtesy of Michelle, this was a nice, warming afternoon change of pace, although I agree with previous reviews. It isn’t what you expect. It doesn’t lead with the heat, it’s significantly more savory than you’d think, and is much improved with the contents of a honey straw. However, it warmed the bones and opened the throat. Mission accomplished.

I was quite enjoying that intro. No need to stop yourself if/when you feel another urge come on.

Michelle

Ha! I will send more tea if your notes will all be as creative as this one.

I’ll see what I can do ;)

Evol Ving Ness

Yay Michelle!

Back some years before many of you were Steepsters, one of the regulars at the time ran a limerick contest. I’ll have to fish a little and see if any of the entries survived the discussion board.

Michelle

That’s awesome gmathis, what was in the tea box, do you remember?

Evol Ving Ness

I love this! And where did all those people go?!
We are all still drinking tea here.

Steepster has always been home to extremely kind, quirky, creative people…I wish I knew the whereabouts of some of those who drifted away. Should we conduct a missing persons investigation? Memories of the box itself are fuzzy … I think I got to try, for the first time, either corn or barley tea.

WOW but your limericks were great, gmathis. Thanks for digging that up for us. :D (and your fun intro to this tea note… I always like your writing!)
