I’m thinking the store may have switched up—or mixed—the leaves in my favorite cheapie bulk bin oolong. This batch wasn’t as large and stemmy as I usually expect, but still a nice green-and-brown blend. Yard mulch. Steeped up light and nutty for a morning-long writing session yesterday; the rest wasn’t bad chilled. And still 31 cents an ounce, bless the store. Can’t beat that.

Good Lord 31 cents an ounce!? WHAT store? LOL

Fox Farm Foods … a little independently-owned health-food & specialty grocery store here in my hometown. A lot of their bulk teas come from San Francisco Herb & Spice, but this one I think is direct from overseas; I see the big dog-food sized bags they use to fill the bin.

The thought of a big bin of tea makes me tremble a little bit. I have a problem.

…Makes you just want to stick your hands in it and sniff, huh? :)

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
