Still recovering from yesterday’s migraine so while I have Maeda-en’s Sen-Cha Fukamushi Reserve sitting on my counter, crying out to be made, I need something softer. So I made a big cup of this up.

Making it up in a cup this large (and with an in cup filter, not in my tea pot) seems to have made the taste a tad murky. But it’s not bad at all. My cup got emptied very quickly so I’m not going to complain. Well, not about the taste or drinkability. Can I just take a moment to complain about the leaves?

There are stems in my leaves. Huge, two or three inch stems. And broken leaves. And they all look unshiny and unhappy. The leaves disappoint me each time I see them. But, the taste that comes out of those leaves? Pretty good. Very drinkable.

Overall, not a fancy tea but a good daily type tea. Shines a little more in a smaller cup.

Aww, Auggers. My heart goes out to you, because I know how awful a migraine can be. Please feel better! I hope the tea is soothing you!

Yeah, migraines are awful. Might not be universal, but I have found that rubbing/squeezing the back of my neck tends to head them off, if I catch it early. I still get the visual auras somewhat regularly, but I haven’t had a painful migraine for several years now.

Thanks y’all. Unfortunately I didn’t catch this one in time (something triggered it so I didn’t get the build up I normally do) and even my prescription only barely made a dent. Most of the time ice packs and OTC stuff can take care of it but this time was just eeeeevil. Boo. But now about 24-hours later I think I’m finally all good. Yay!

I heard something about the herb feverfew helping to stem migrains – might be worth looking into if your meds aren’t working.

Auggy

Thanks, I’ll have to check that out!

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
