1704 tasting notes

This has been a week of major personal stress. As I was heating water in the microwave at work (not my preferred method, but any port in a storm), I put the bag up to my nose and inhaled all the minty, lemongrassy goodness and meditated, not on Zen, but on my favorite paraphrased Bible verse: Lord, you are my portion and my [cuppa]. (Psalm 16:3, spelling adapted to suit myself.)

The flavor, steeped, isn’t quite as strong as the bag scent. I may have sniffed all the smell out! It’s more minty than green, for sure, but still very calming and would be good on a sore dry throat. Nice aftertaste on your tongue.

Love your adapted Bible verse!

Don’t forget “My cuppa runneth over!” Who’s to say they didn’t steep tea in the Middle East, 6th century BC? Hmmm….now I’ll have to do some research….

I totally forgot about “my cup runneth over!” Seriously though, matcha specifically + time w/ God= good stuff!

OK … a quick Google indicates tea didn’t make it that far West until 850 AD. It was a nice theory while it lasted.

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.
