I was saving this one for a special occasion since K S said it was one of his favorites. It is freeeeeezing cold out, hubby has worked a bit of overtime this week, and I thought we would do yoga with the Buckstove humming away and celebrate his weekend. Alas, hubby was supposed to get off work at 11:30 today, but ended up driving a total of seven hours after that to go to a funeral for the father of his boss. He is that kind of guy. But it meant he crashed on the couch when he got home and didn’t feel like exercising.

That’s okay! I can drink most of this by myself, I am sure!

I steeped it for three minutes with 174F water. I resteeped it immediately for three minutes and combined the two steeps in my large tetsubin.

This has a rich golden color. Up front, the sip is sweet and mild, then comes a bloom of stronger flavor that reminds me a little of Chun Mee, one of my favorites for pairing with Asian take out.

Very nice! I have polished off about half of the pot. I hope I can sleep tonight! The rest will be reheated and served with lunch tomorrow.

“reminds me a little of Chun Mee”… that would explain why I would reach in the drawer for something else and my hand would keep coming out with this one.

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.
