drank Snow Dragon by Harney & Sons
1769 tasting notes

Two days ago, I was a coloratura soprano. This morning, I awoke as a baritone. The stuffiness is perhaps a bit relieved but my throat and vocal cords are definitely TICKED OFF and swollen. I am rumbly, but not in my tumbly. I sound like one of Marge Simpson’s sisters.

Tea to the rescue! I wanted a green, and chose Snow Dragon since I haven’t had it in a while. Even though my tasting abilities are not at 100% this is a lovely cup of tea. I am not getting any bitterness or astringency and I definitely taste the mineral quality of snow melt and a light, very light nuttiness or earthiness. I plan to resteep this and keep sipping it all day.

I so understand! That fun cold has been making its rounds at work. I completely lost my voice on Wednesday. Evil! I hope you feel better soon!

LOL @ “I sound like one of Marge Simpson’s sisters.” Been there! :)

Poor you, hope you are better soon.

I’ve always had a soft spot for a really good bass. :)

Feel better Selma Bouvier – Doh!

The guys I chant with at church are always joking that on those mornings we wake up with an unexpected octave or two in the lower register we should be recording ison in every tone we ever need because none of us can come close to true basso isons on a normal Sunday.

Amazing how much tea helps when this is an unwelcome change to one’s voice, though.

What, like Barbara Cook?! struck dumb with envy Man, I can’t sing worth a good goddamn! LOL.

Anyway, next time you’re sick, I’ve found raspberry leaf seems to help. Not the most exciting taste in the world, though, I blended it with other things.

Thank you, Daniel! I haven’t tried that. I think most of my problem was a strong allergic reaction to the early oak pollen due to our extremely warm winter. It is 75 degrees today.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about four years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
