drank Queen Catherine by Harney & Sons
1798 tasting notes

Yes, I had Queen Catherine for breakfast and supper! It really doesn’t need another review from me, but I wanted to share a picture or two of our latest tea buddy. We have had several praying mantids and a mole, and now we have a new member of the household. He has actually had second steep shu puerh. He liked it, his sister LOVED it. We adopted one of the puppies from the little family we fostered since December 20 from our local no kill shelter. Welcome, Samwise, to tea parties! He is really rockin’ that bow tie, isn’t he?

SimplyJenW: he earned his name as a tiny pup, being the roundest and the most eager nurser, so he was the Fat Hobbit. Now he is the tallest and leggiest of the siblings. He is called Sam, Sam the Wise, Samwise, Sammie, and…my husband calls him Samalama Ding Dong, or just Mr. Ding Dong for short. I was trying to nip that in the bud but have found myself calling him Samalama without realizing it at first.

Awww -what a handsome fella. No pets are allowed in my apartment building but I’d love to have one someday.

Would it be too creepy if I followed you on flickr? (same user name). Just in case you put up more photos of him (no need to be having tea). Because awww, I am sort of inlove with him already.

By the way, not sure if pu-erh is better at it, but usually tea has some theobramime. Not a lot, not nearly as much as cocoa, but

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…
