On days like today, I’m glad for this tea. I lived in Boston for 6 years just blocks away from today’s carnage. I met my husband there, and the city holds a special place in my heart forever. I even stood many times right where the bombs went off to watch the runners coming in.

There was a time when today’s news would have induced me to pour myself a scotch, but today I made this, and it was more comforting than I could have imagined. I must sound crazy, but this tea’s unique flavor is really transcendent. Never had anything like it.

I wonder how on earth Stacy came across it and whether we can expect to have access to it every year for many years to come…

Yeah, I know, but I’d love to know more about where it comes from!

I guess I have to try this tea, judging from the reviews. Yes, it’s been a tough day up here. I live an hour north of Boston and had many, many friends who were either running or watching. So wrenching.

Rachel J

Yes, try it, Doug when it comes in in late summer. I guess it might not be for everyone, but I have been really astonished by its wonderful flavor.

I hope you heard from all your friends. So awful…

Profile

Bio

I happily reside in Park Slope, Brooklyn with my husband, our baby son, and our dog. I teach over 40 piano students per week at my home studio and created “Fundamental Keys”, a classical piano method book and video series.

My husband and I are vegan and have been for about 8 years. We are enjoying bringing up our little one in the vegan tradition!

I went through a major tea phase some years ago (2006-2009) and had quite a collection and tasted hundreds of varieties. Then I went off caffeine when I decided to have a baby, and after he was born I got into a nasty coffee habit. Now I’ve come back to tea, thank goodness. I’m finding my tastes have changed quite a bit since my first go at tea fanaticism. Really enjoying some of the amazing and deliciously complex teas I’ve learned about through Steepster!
