Thanks DHart1214 for this tea sample!
I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned WHY I write about being ‘OLD’. Maybe I have and I’ve forgotten which is something I chuckle about to myself. My short term memory just isn’t what it used to be.
I write about what ‘OLD’ is like so you’ll know what your parents, grandparents and your own future might be like one day. Nobody seems to want to talk about ‘OLD’. It’s not a dirty word!
If I want to drink caffeine and stay up late I can, sleeping in without worrying about being late for work. It’s great!
I don’t have much money but I look forward to the little things in life like being with family, the next cup of tea, a trip to my Tea Pub, free events in Old Town and at Church. I love my daily routine spending time with my Steepster friends.
Towards the end of the month my funds get tight right before my monthly Social Security Disability Check.
Before it arrives my pantry begins to look a little bare. This is when I become creative.
If you read last evening’s tea review about the pumpkin risotto pancakes, that was one recipe born from of running out of breakfast cereal. I got creative and made enough pancakes to last for a few days.
Today, I’ll make soup for lunches. On my patio Kale is ready to pick from one of my long planters again, another way I’ve added to my on-hand diet this year.
Life is good.
This morning, I decided to make some bread before having tea. This didn’t take long and I topped the bread with Sea Salt and Greek Dry Herbs.
As soon as the bread was cool enough, I sliced it, buttered a piece and ate it. Um, good.
I made a small pot of Immortal Nectar loose Puerh, rinsing it off lightly, then steeping about 1.5 minutes.
The fragrance was sweet and the liquor fairly dark brown.
I wouldn’t call the flavor earthy by my Puerh standards, but it was sweet, savory and smooth more like a good coffee. Maybe an Italian Roast. This was really tasty.
Another slice of warm bread and I couldn’t help treat the Puerh like a cup of morning coffee. In went cream and sugar which was perfectly delicious, rich but still robust.
I’d definitly drink this as a coffee substitute. If you are squeamish about Puerh’s, this is tame. Not too earthy, no mushroom or cedar flavor and not fishy at all.
What a lovely start to my day! I have so much to be thankful for.
