Simple is best some days. This is. It isn’t stellar, there aren’t rocketships and moonbeams dancing on my tastebuds, I can’t pick out any distinguishing flavors, but it’s just good, dependable, hot leaf juice. Though I love my teas that cause me to pause and ponder, one doesn’t always need tea that requires deep thought.

Guess you can tell you’ve hit the tea-dious dog days of summer when you have bins and baskets of perfectly acceptable and flavorful fancy stuff and you just shrug, say “eh,” and make yourself a cup of plain brown leaf juice.

This was the leaf juice of choice this morning; not unpleasant; just nondescript. Likely a good base for blending, but that would require thinking. It’s too hot to think.

Fox Farm (local health food grocery) has significantly expanded its tea selection (oh, darn!) so I am dutifully sipping away at all my scraps and samples in order to justify a significant shopping excursion soon.

This one isn’t top-of-the-heap but it is tasty and an easy steeper, maybe leans to the more astringent side. A good inexpensive staple.

I cannot say that I have ever heard of Fox Farm, but sipping through samples to justify a tea purchase trip? Sounds like a great idea to me.

It isn’t a chain, just an inexpensive local outlet for tea, health food, and miscellaneous international groceries. My husband and I can spend an hour just prowling the aisles for fun.

Grabbed a (cheap!) couple ounces of this at favorite Fox Farm Whole Food store. It exceeded expectations—no particular flavor comparison, but it has a bright, sharp, crisp personality. A good, plain-brown-wrapper pantry tea.
