Grrrrr… argh…

I am so very sleepy this morning. I even hit snooze too many times and was subsequently late for work. D’oh!

So simplicity is what this morning calls for. Brewed this up in my generic tea bottle, with water out of the dispenser, which technically isn’t hot enough, but, again, simplicity. I was already heating my oatmeal.

This time, I am tasting the cocoa notes of this, which don’t usually come through for me as much. It’s a comforting, dependable tea though, and that’s what counts.

Last night, I downloaded the Zombies, Run! app to my cell phone, and went for a quick walk/occasional sprint with it. It was a lot of fun as I went around my own neighborhood, imagining it as a post-apocolyptic wasteland where I gathered supplies and ran away from hordes of shuffling undead.

I was thinking this morning that I would definitely have to add tea to my must-pick-up supplies in a Zombie invasion. This tea would be on my hoped for list. And Jasmine tea, as well. At some point, you might be reduced to Lipton teabags though. shudder

If you knew a Zombie invasion was coming, what tea would you stockpile? :D

Oh, dear…well, I believe I would have to stockpile Earl Grey, if I could only stockpile one.
But after that, it would be Jasmine Pearl.
Although…if we are just boiling water around a campfire (no electric kettles to be found with variable temp option I am sure) than maybe one should stick to black and herbals so they can handle a higher temp water…
Wow, well you sure gave me something to ponder while running on the treadmill this morning;)

If cost wasn’t an object, pearl teas would be incredibly efficient, I think. It seems to take only a few pearls for a strong cup, and they don’t take up much space. Hmmm… I might have to rethink my Zombie Emergency Supply Plan :D

Hesper June

Very true.
I also got to thinking of that while I was running, that maybe it would be better to have a tea that can tolerate lower heating temps.
Most likely our tea time will have to be short periods of time while we are on the go, so having a tea that you would not have to heat the water up to a boiling might be better.
So, again…Pearls would fit the bill:)

Bio

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
