Had a cup of this last night with my parents since my dad has a collection of tea now but never wants to make tea. He seems to think there’s some sort of rules for drinking tea that he hasn’t mastered. So this weekend was about trying to show him that tea is just meant to be enjoyed. Rules be damned! Make it and enjoy it however you want. I made this one, and I’m not sure if dad enjoyed this, but mom went sneaking back to the pot to make a second and third cup for herself after I told her the leaves could be resteeped :) so this was a success for at least one of my parents to the point where she’s written down the name on her list. Heh.

Aww, your poor dad! It’s impressive that he’s buying it though – once you get him into the rules be damned mode all will be well!

Your Dad sounds like my Mom- She likes the idea of all the teas, but doesn’t want to brew them up herself. She’d rather have me do the work! :-)

Sil

haha yeah. i can’t be driving 5 hours to make tea though :) so they need to learn heh

My parents live in the same town as I, so I see them often. I got my mother into drinking tea and she supposedly makes it daily when I am not there, but when I am. . .“hey, Shelley do I let the water boil for this one? Is this a green tea? Hojicha, that’s not hojicha, it says green tea on the can!” And for the 4th time I tell her yes, thats right, hojicha is a green tea. Then I have to wonder how it is that she brews tea when I am not there. sigh :)

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
