This morning I’ve been scurrying about like some sort of ground squirrel gathering nuts and seeds…only my stash has been tea. A packet here and a sprinkle there into a packet for a friend in a distant place who has yet to try one of my favorite tea’s. I especially love sending out loose tea to a Steepster newbee who has mostly teabag’s. (I have a few and I enjoy my Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice on occasion). It’s going to rain.

My treat for myself in all this tea hustle and bustle is Chocolate Chamomile Curiosity Brew! I did a wahoo review the first time I tasted it. Really, I was not able to control my enthusiasm. Now that I’ve had this tea 4 or 5 times…I can lean back like a fat cat because I’ve ordered more of the fine blend you know. Ta Ta!

You have to be prepared for the experience. There is the warm side…chocolate Laoshan Black with luxurious Wuyi Big Red Robe (I never think of tea…I think of a mink coat) and then…cool Mint. It reminds me of a scene in Dr. Zhivago…and I’m riding in a Troika racing through the snowy night wrapped in fur with the wind in my face and a pot of tea at my feet and chocolates…just that whole warm cool world . Wow am I a romantic!
This is a brilliant cup! Watch Dr. Zhivago again or for the first time with this blend sometime.
