This is definitely a nice tea for a rainy afternoon/early evening.

I admit I do not crave it often, but I love it when the weather is cold and rainy! And I’m happy the heat is starting to come on in my building. Can you say… brrrr?

Yeah always good when the heat comes on :D I keep a heater in my room and I have a pretty good heating blanket as my room is always the coldest in the house :D

hi gmathis – no… we have steam heat in the building and it usually comes on at night but sometimes it gets chilly here during the day. SF buildings are not known for their insulation and tend to be drafty.

I feel your pain!!! I’ve been freezing in my apartment several times. It really bothers me when I come in my apartment feels colder than outside. Old DC apartments for you.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!
