75

We’re prepped for the big rainstorm rolling through. Took down all the windchimes haha, tarped what needed to be tarped, set up the pump for our yard prone to flooding, brought in some firewood in case the power goes out. Cold and wet, I came back in with freezing hands and knew this tea from Martin was what I needed to cast away the chill.

Made one cup for me and one for Kiki. This sips with a clean, fairly mellow herbal-sweet peppermint followed by the hot spice of ginger that dominates the red peppercorn. The red peppercorn also provides a hint of its exotic floral-fruity perfume. I could swear there’s also cinnamon in this because I feel like I taste it mid-mouth, but unless it’s an added flavor it isn’t in this blend. It’s a smooth, clean tea that I think gets some minerality from the puerh. Though I can’t necessarily taste the puerh’s trademark earthy flavor, I know its there and supporting the herbs and spices.

I like it. Kiki likes it. Simple, smooth and spicy and a good soul-warmer. Thanks, Martin :)

Rainstorms are one of my favs! Hopefully the power holds up, for the love of tea!

I’m a fan, too. Hope Todd here on Steepster, who lives in an area hit by wildfires this year, won’t get any of the accompanying mudslides. As for tea, nothing a gas range, a stovetop kettle and a pack of matches can’t fix :)

Some areas nearby got evacuated, but we should be fine, thanks! We have a generator, backup internet, and we’re working on getting dial-up as a backup backup internet!

We had mixed snow and rain here along with a small storm.

You are welcome. Happy to see it comes handy, though not really a winter for you. At least it was drank after being outside :)

We are still waiting for snow that will probably not materialize. Rain is a big deal in CA. Stay safe.
