Luncheon tea….or maybe more like Elevensies?

Mama has suff to do today. She cannot afford to be sick. Time to load up the rocket! Actually, I am feeling better. I finally found a decongestant that is helping. I can’t remember the last time all I had was a cold….. Why is it that you generally suffer the longest with one as opposed to other ailments that requre antibiotics? I have to be Roadie today for Jazz Band tryouts…that means hauling an electric bass, an electric guitar, and an amp. Wish me luck!

24 oz teapot, 3 perfect tsp Chocolate Rocket, 1 perfect tsp Organic Keemun from the local Asian market, freshly boiled water, 5 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

OY, having just dragged my amp across the living room I can relate. Watch your back, bend those knees, lift with your legs and all that other good stuff! Hope you feel 100% soon!

I hope you feel better soon! Chocolate Rocket is an amazing cure-all… or at least a yummy kick in the pants when you need it.

My motto: Drink the good tea!

Tea enthusiast, trying to keep up my cardio for the zombie apocalypse. I have come to accept that I am a western brewing black tea drinker as that is where my ‘tea heart’ lies. I started on loose leaf as a way to have my dessert and not suffer the caloric issues. Once I tried it, I was hooked.

I drink what I like, which is mostly China blacks, a few traditionally scented blacks and Earl Greys, plus a flavored tea here and there. I don’t mind spending a bit on premium varieties on occasion, but an expensive tea has to deliver. My favorite places to order are Harney & Sons and Upton Tea Imports. TeaVivre is great for Chinese tea.

My ratings are pretty subjective. If it falls under 70, I may not take the time to post about it unless I had something specific to say. If it is 70-80 I like it, but I will probably not rebuy. Favorites are over 80 and up, but sometimes the less expensive or more easily obtainable version of a similar taste will win out for my cupboard space.

Usual teapot steeping method: 24 oz teapot, 3 perfect scoops of tea (4 1/2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual mug steeping method: 15 oz mug, 1.5 perfect scoops of tea (just over 2 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, 4 minutes. Lightly sweetened.

Usual pan method: 1 1/2 cups water, 2 perfect tsp chai (3 actual tsp). Simmer for 3 minutes. Add 2/3 cup skim milk. Simmer for 2 more minutes. Strain and sweeten.

Usual pitcher method:
5 or 6 Perfect Spoons of tea (this means about 7-9 actual tsp), freshly boiled water, brewed essentially double-strong in my 24 oz teapot for 4 minutes. Fill my Fiestaware Disc pitcher (about 60 oz.) halfway with ice. Add brewed double-strong tea to the pitcher. Stir it a little and enjoy. No additions.
