A quick cuppa before heading out for my first radiation treatment, or as my eldest calls it, OFF TO GET MICROWAVED! I hope I get a superpower. Note to self: avoid dung beetles.

I thought I would give this another try. It is unchanged, as is my opinion! It isn’t terrible, it is plain black tea. There is a tiny bit of astringency but not much. It has decent body but lacks nuance. It would be fine with lunch but I would rather have a tea that makes me oooo and aaaah. I think this must come from camellia assamica bushes because I have that little tummy rumble I get when I drink assams and yunnans! I do best with camellia sinensis teas!

Preparation

Hope it goes well, smoothly, and uneventfully.

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…
