drank Wuyi Cassia by Harney & Sons
1876 tasting notes

I went to the no kill shelter to deliver some donations of dog food, and came home with an American Dingo and her three puppies to foster. This on top of two gatherings at my house today and tonight, and another tomorrow. I am still in my jammies and the onions made me cry til I couldn’t see. It is time for a cuppa by the tree!

This is so much spicier than I remembered! I definitely have the toasted flavor, almost burnt toast but not in a bad way, but in addition to the spicy hint of cinnamon I feel like I am getting black pepper today. Maybe I am just extra aware of the toasty notes. Delicious, satisfying, very different, and much needed. No additions, not to oolong….ever!

Hmmm, not black pepper. Maybe seriously toasted walnuts!

Ooh, I love American Dingoes! They are so cute as puppies!

JacquelineM

Awwwwwwwwwww. I hope to hear about them and their antics. Kind heart! <3

The pups were less than 24 hours old when we brought them home, they are so cute! There is a fat little white one with a brown spot who has already been named Samwise Gamgee by my girls. He is the fat hobbit who nurses the most!

We must have Hobbits on the brain! My coworker’s finches just had babies and I am going to adopt two! If they are two boys I’m going to name them Merry and Pippin! Two girls Charlotte and Emily (Bronte). I would like a same sex pair so no more babies will come!

They sound so precious, and have the best foster mom imaginable! :)

Aw, I love those birdie names! Perfect! Have you seen the Hobbit trailer yet? Looks awesome! :)

JacquelineM

Yes! I burst into tears about half way through!

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five 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 and oolongs.

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

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