Parden me while I rant on this one a while, This is one of the best teas I have ever had. Simple, elegant, with such a pleasant life giving influence. It tasted best after I let it cool down a bit. After I enjoyed the first cup, I could sense a gentle warming of my mind, lifting the fog. The second cup brings the delightful satisfaction of a good cup of tea. Highly recommend this one.

drank Monk's Blend by Zhi Tea

I really like the tins these teas come in, besides that it’s a nice blend of Green and Black tea that is good by itself while you contemplate life’s mysteries. I wouldn’t steep it too long. It’s not a complex flavor, simply invigorating.

Grandma boiled this one up with heaps of sugar and served on ice. Southern style. It’s not good for you but tastes good.

It’s a decent green tea, if someone made me a cup I would be thankful for it. If you don’t want to get complex about tea, this is a good pick.

Simple – mere; honest; without pretense.

My cup goes with me…
and my french press isn’t far.

Three things I am very thankful for,
Fire, Fish & Tea.

Two things needed for Tea…
time and a friend.

Here is a tea poem, not mine but I like it…

A Cup of Tea

A cup of tea at the crack of dawn
Uplifts the spirit and inspires the heart.

A cup of tea after a meal
Clears the mouth and helps the stomach.

A cup of tea amid the bustle of life
Relieves parched throat and dispels vexation.

A cup of tea when you’re overworked
Soothes muscle and bone and dissolves fatigue.
