I went to ching ching Cha tonight with a coworker and her husband. We bopped around Georgetown for a bit. I was in Georgetown TWICE in one week. Unheard of! After dropping a lot of money at the Spice & Tea Exchange, my worker and I went to ching ching CHA, where she dropped money on tea, and then we met her hubby at Baked & Wired where coworker tried to get me hooked on coffee (failed) and I ordered an amazing cupcake that tasted like pancakes. NOM.

And then we all headed back to ching ching CHA for dinner. I ordered White Peony to go with my food and it was delightful. I really like white peony – it’s a solid white tea that infuses multiple times extremely well, mellows me out, and is relatively inexpensive as far as white tea goes.

Ching ching CHA’s white peony was pretty decent, and had a deep, rich flavor. Went great with my marbled egg. I lost track of how many infusions I got out of it but it was many.

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens. For the most part, I don’t like straight black tea, but appreciate it as part of a blend or flavored. I’ve learned to love the world of flavored teas out there.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I started drinking for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Love: Oolong, almond, coconut, peach
Hate: Ginger
