I’m about one cup away from a sipdown on this one so I thought I’d tell you all about it again!

Spicy but so good, especially if you add some sugar. I’m still reading “a thousand splendid suns” and they drink quite a bit of tea in this book. So I put some instrumental African music on Songza, made this tea and it makes me thoroughly enjoy my Sunday. My partner is away for the week and it’s totally awesome. :)

It is minty and sweet and spicy and it hits the spot. I can totally fantasize about Egypt.

Aww, this note totally made me travel…

Too bad, I don’t have that book in my Overdrive :-(
Is it good so far?

It’s really good! I was wait listed about 9 months. Lol

Fairy, we should watch “Cairo Time”. Not sure you’d like it but what the hey, worth a shot.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
