Backlogging from Chicago trip:

One of the best teas I’ve ever had. The fragrance was perfect and simply inhaling the tea as it cooled brought pleasure to my senses. Drinking the tea was excellent as well. Even my beloved who thinks he hates teas loved this one.

A note on the tea shop: It was excellent. The proprietor is knowledgeable and very helpful. It is a great sadness to me that I couldn’t spend more time there.

I want to say that we don’t really have a lot of tea shop/cafes around here besides Starbucks and Caribou and Starbucks and Starbucks [and I’m lukewarm on all of those], but that’s probably not true. I’ve gotten so used to just getting stuff sent and making things here and my version of “going out” has consisted of going to friends houses lately. I’d honestly forgotten that you can go out to legit places and physically get tea. I guess I’ll have to venture into DC soon. Though maybe not until the semester’s over. This means that it’s time for research. Google, here I come!

We do not have anything like this Chinese tea shop here in Memphis. That’s why it was such a treat to go to Dream About Tea. One of my friends describes “Tea Touring” in her tea blog and I am always so envious to read about cities that have good tea shops where one can actually try the tea as it was meant to be brewed and hear from knowledgeable people.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
