Tea from this morning. This one is pretty bold (I picked it up at The Whistling Kettle – who I know gets there tea from MTC)! Very smokey and all around oaky flavor to it, really nice. I really like it as one of my morning kickstarters once I get to work. Thankfully I learned my lesson that one cup is enough…when I had it at WK yesterday I had a small stump pot which was WAY too much! I’m going to try it in the potato soup recipe I’m making tonight…I got the recipe from the lovely Bigelow (aisling of tea) any Lapsang adds a nice smoke/bacon flavor so we’ll see what this one brings.

I am a tea lover, a wife, and mother of three cats (all rescues). I love to read, and to write. I’m also a BIG fan of the BBC’s Sherlock as well as Doctor Who.

I started drinking and enjoying tea (sure it was bagged Lipton, but it got me started) when my grandmother first introduced me to tea with milk and sugar (and peanut butter and jelly on toast) and my love just grew from there.

I was brought to loose leaf through a trip to Teavana aka my gateway to loose tea. But my taste has expanded along with my love of tea. Sometimes I right about tea on my blog – Gal In The Grey Hat.
