When I first received this tea I was actually heading out the door to do errands or golf. I do not remember nor is it important. I hastily tore into the package and smelled the aroma. I knew it was special. So I put some of the leaf into my tiny Celestial Seasons Sleepytime tin and figured there would be hot water somewhere. Still not conquering my haste I decided to sample the dry leaf between my cheek and gum. It was utterly intoxicating. My first brewing of the tea was done according to the video of David on Verdants site. Everything about this tea is true. Truly sublime.
I began to feel sick later that week and really could not stomach anything. Even tea. Even Golden Fleece. I know many of you read about my hospital stay with Ehrlichiosis so I will fast-forward to now….
As you all know I love to cold-brew. I took a tiny jar that held YS Eco Bee Farms Antioxidant Power Honey and gave it a 4 day steep. Words cannot do this golden nectar justice. I do not want to start rambling about the present here and now which is where this tea shines. This a very special tea leaf….

I think you said quite a lot and sublime is a wonderful word. I just finished watching that video and listening to some podcasts. I am hoping that you continue to recover.
