I love the deep dark Assam taste paired with the brassier Yunnan. Nice match, and the combination is stout enough to take ice really well. Huge improvement over the from-the-tap restaurant tea I had earlier today.

A caveat, however: two large glasses of this stuff following two restaurant ice teas following a big morning-long mug of Golden Monkey can over-caffeinate to the point of hamster-heart adrenalin. I think tomorrow may have to be an herbal detox day…

LOL, I would have to stay pretty close to the men’s room myself… :)

Well…

The bright side is you were highly hydrated, these days, that is no easy task.

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.
